Guests comments:

'What a wonderful location and the house! - everything you could wish for. We'll definitely come back, but longer next time'.

“My daughter & her family live in Monchique, so we have stayed in many cottages around, but we felt so at home here, that we will return next year for three weeks, a first for us!”

“View to die for is an understatement. We've had a fabulous week, and we will be coming back”

'It was our second visit to Portugal but our first to Monchique - and we will come back! The great view and the silence are perfect for relaxing.'

'Wow! Our first visit to Portugal and we are hooked. Waking up every morning to the view of 'the world below' is the best tonic ever. The cottage felt like home as soon as we arrived - the best nights sleep ever'.

A beautiful holiday home in a stunning location made our holiday really special and unique'.
