About the property

Monte da Choça - Turismo Rural

Cosily equipped holiday apartments on an idyllically located estate with a lot of untouched nature on the unforgettable west coast of Portugal.

The apartment is renovated and satisfies modern demands without losing the special flair of the 'Monte' (farm house). A wooden stove provides for comfortable warmth also in the winter, the wood from the private forest is available. The old walls, typical in the region, give the home a unique climate, warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Satellite reception and internet through wireless LAN.

Swimming pool, table tennis, garden chess, far view of the Serra de Monchique, nature paths on our estate and also our pets make Monte da Choça so special.

Excursions: Monte da Choça is suitable as a base for great excursions. Visit the picturesque cities on the coast like Zambujeira do Mar Milfontes or Odeceixe, Santiago de Cacém with its Roman ruins or the western Algarve, with its charming cities Lagos, Sagres and the 'end of the world'. Cabo São Vicente, the forest-filled Monchique mountains, with spa springs and thermal spas, opens up a spectacular view of Portugal's west and south coast to Spain with the 'Foja' mountain (902 m).

One of the most beautiful excursions for us is Mertola, right on the Spanish border. The time seems to have stopped since the medieval times. In addition to the unique mosque in Portugal, which is used as a church now, is the home of the rare red falcons in an impressive burg.

Hiking and nature: The nature park Costa Vicentina protects a uniquely beautiful coast, which is also a hiking paradise in addition to the untouched dream beaches. We are located on the 'Rota Vicentina' cycling path that was opened in 2012, which we helped crate and we also contribute to its maintenance. This makes it possible to hike on the most beautiful corners of the coast without getting lost. You can reach the most beautiful parts from us, plus we have created hiking suggestions and also provide maps.

On our estate, we take care of the nature paths with a lot of care and you can gladly profit from our rich collection of books about nature.

Wave riding: Southwest Portugal is a paradise for surfers. There are good waves particularly in the fall to December when it is otherwise too cold in different places.

We rent surfboards and suits (please register in advance) and Rudolfo is gladly available to help you out as a passionate surfer.

During the summer, our boogie boards are particularly popular among children. We rent these free of charge with short neoprene suits.

We have just returned from a really wonderful 8 days at monte da choca.... It's a perfect little place and great hosts (Rudolfo & Angelica), great location and wonderful beaches & places to explore all within half hour drive. Great place for families of all ages... Our 3 year old loved exploring the play areas & of course the gorgeous pool...

Thank you Rudolfo! We will see you again!

Sehr schöne Ferienwohnung mit herzlichem Vermieter

  • 5 of 5

Diese Ferienwohnung ist sehr zu empfehlen für alle Naturliebhaber; die Lage ist traumhaft, abseits von großen Orten mit tollem Blick auf die Umgebung und trotzdem ist man nicht weit entfernt von der Küste, Wanderwegen und allen möglichen urbanen Annehmlichkeiten.

Ein herrlicher Kamin, der oft wie durch Zauberhand schon abends brannte, macht diese Unterkunft auch im Winter gemütlich.

Besonders schön war dieser Aufenthalt aber durch Rudolfo, der sich nicht nur liebevoll um uns kümmerte und viele gute Empfehlungen hatte, sondern sogar mit uns zusammen wanderte und mit unserem Sohn Schach spielte.

Wunderschöne Ferienwohnung an der Costa Vicentina

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren im September 2014 für eine Woche in Monte do Choca. Die Ferienwohnungen sind in traditionellen portugiesischen Bauernhäusern untergebracht. Unsere Wohnung war super schön, ruhig, sauber, gemütlich und urig, und mit allen modernen Annehmlichkeiten ausgestattet, die man sich für eine Ferienwohnung so wünscht: Ceranherd, Spülmaschine, Kaffeemaschine, Toaster, Flachbildschirm, offener Kamin und vieles mehr. Nach einer halben Woche wurde die Ferienwohnung gereinigt und Handtücher und Bettzeug wurde gewechselt. Vor dem Haus gibt es einen gemütlichen Garten mit einem sehr schönen und sauberen Pool. Der Garten vor dem Haus war nach einem langen Wandertag stets unser Lieblingsplatz um zu Relaxen und den Tag ausklingen zu lassen.

Die Ferienwohnung befindet sich ziemlich in der Mitte der Costa Vicentina und ist dadurch ein idealer Ausgangspunkt um die Trails der Rota Vicentina (fantastische Küstenwanderungen!) oder die vielen Strände und Buchten der Algarve zu entdecken. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, Restaurants und Cafes sind nur ein paar Minuten von der Ferienwohnung entfernt, allerdings braucht man ein Auto um dahin zu kommen.

Unserer besonderer Dank geht an den Vermieter Rudolfo, der selber ein passionierter Surfer und Wanderer ist. Er hat uns während unseres Aufenthalts mit unbezahlbaren Tips versorgt und so unseren Urlaub zu einem besonderen Erlebnis gemacht.

Wir können Monte da Choca uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen und vergeben daher gerne die volle Punktezahl!

Prachtige locatie!

  • 5 of 5

De huisjes zijn liefdevol ingericht, de tuin is een paradijs, het zwembad is fantastisch! Eigenaar Rudolfo zet zich met hart en ziel in om zijn gasten een heerlijke vakantie te bezorgen. Er is van alles te doen in de omgeving (o.a. Sagres, mooie stranden in Zambujeira en Odeceixe). Er zijn veel goede restaurants in de buurt. En de zon schijnt er elke dag (toen wij er waren...). Een plek om nooit te vergeten!

Traumhafter Ausgangspunkt im Alentejo

  • 5 of 5

Sehr saubere Unterkunft in gemütlicher Atmosphäre auf einem wirklich traumhaften Areal, alle Einrichtungen sehr gut gepflegt. Für Familien ideal, Rudolfo kennt die Umgebung wie seine Westentasche und kann Tips für alle Gelegenheiten geben: Wander an den Klippen, Surfen, Restaurants, Spezialitäten usw. spricht super Deutsch. Von hier aus kann die gesamte Westküste bis zur Algarve erkundet werden. Idealer Standort für Leute, die was Unternehmen wollen und auch mal gemütlich relaxen!!

About Rudolfo Muller

I have been living in Portugal for almost thirty years. After some time as a hiking guide, I decided to reside on the west coast. Everything that fits to fresh air excites me: hiking, mountain biking, nature in general and birds in particular and for a few years also surfing, which is becoming more and more of a passion. I have settled down well in my new home, where I actively participate in the design of sustainable tourism in the executive board of the Rota Vicentina club.

My wife Angélica, who takes care of the many small details, is from Brazil. Particularly these small things make up the charm of our property. Thanks to her love for animals, you will find a lot of pets here as well. Particularly children look forward to our sheep, goats, chicken and ducks. And of course our cats and two lovely dogs.

Rudolfo Muller purchased this farmhouse in 1998

Why Rudolfo Muller chose São Teotónio


There is hardly any other region with such a comfortable climate and where there is still space and untouched nature. A comfortable and very authentic population, which is not yet influenced by mass tourism, makes your holiday a joy. The distance to the sea is perfect, you can also live absolutely peacefully and relaxed during the peak of the summer, but you can get to the beach for swimming or wave riding in 10 minutes. On our estate, you will find countless romantic corners with seats and wonderful hikes nearby.

Monte de Choça is embedded in the middle of the hiking paradise of Rota Vicentina and the fishing path, only 5 km from the Atlantic coast with its large sand beaches and small, idyllic bays, ideal for swimming and surfing. In ten minutes, you will find the popular resorts of Zambujeira do Mar and Odeceixe with a variety of charming bays and beaches, cafés, restaurants and bars. In São Teotónio (5 km) you will find a lot of shopping possibilities. A breakfast in the bakery at the popular church square should definitely not be missed.
