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.
