From the owner

The Stonehouse is a 2 bedroom converted farm house nestled in the hillside of the Sierra de Monchique, but still only 30 minutes from the coast. Designed for 2-4 people the Stonehouse has been carefully converted to offer comfort, space & character. Entering through the kitchen to the spacious living room, on the first floor, you can continue to enjoy the panoramic view. Main Bedroom and bathroom are on the ground floor. All ground Floor windows are fitted with fly screens.The Stonehouse has a fully equiped Kitchen with cooker, microwave, crookery and cutlery, washing machine and TV (local TV only), All Bedding and linen is included.The Stonehouse is ideally situated to explore both the South Coast & the more rugged West Coasts of the Algarve. It is only a 10 minute drive to Monchique, which lies between the two hills Fóia & Picota, the former reaching over 900 metres above sea level. Between Monchique & the town of Portimão is the popular little spa resort of Caldas de Monchique. This pretty little village has now been restored to its former glory. Saunter around the boutiques & cafes, picnic beneath the pines, or walk up the valley alongside a burbling stream.Holidays in Monchique are an enviable procession of sight seeing, leisurely walks through astonishingly beautiful countryside, sitting in idyllic town squares, with local markets offering regional produce & handicrafts, or eating simple but absolutely delicious local food & watching day-to-day life swirl past you.
