The villa is ideal for a relaxing holiday, with plenty of opportunities for walking, exploring the beautiful countryside, visiting both the south and west coasts and the local towns such as Monchique or simply relaxing by the pool.

We have a very good, part-time maid who comes 3 afternoons a week. We have an English speaking gardener/handyman who lives close by and can answer any questions.

The Algarve region

The Algarve is renowned for its excellent climate and miles of sandy beaches. Casa Abilheira is ideally situated for you to discover the less commercialised Algarve – new roads mean that it is easy to explore the mountains with their winding roads, herds of goats and simple cafes serving delicious local specialities. You can drive to the lesser known and dramatic West Coast beaches popular with surfers (40 minutes) or the south coast with stunning beaches and the famous golden cliffs (35 minutes). Even in the summer months, it is possible to find relatively quiet beaches on the south coast. Local towns such as Caldas de Monchique (an ancient spa), Silves, and Aljezur are all well worth a visit as are the larger towns of Portimao (good for shopping and eating grilled sardines) and Lagos (for historical associations with Henry the Navigator – and its bustling, colourful streets).

Monchique

Casa Abilheira is located on the south facing slopes of Foia, the highest point in the Algarve (900 metres). It is directly below the peak (700 metres above sea level) and has stunning views across the Algarve. The villa is surrounded by shrubs and trees – particularly cork oaks, eucalyptus, pine, olive and chestnuts.
Casa Abilheira is 4km from the delightful small town of Monchique, a traditional market town with all the facilities you will need. It boasts narrow cobbled streets, ancient churches, whitewashed houses, beautiful public gardens and play areas for children. There is a pretty town square with cafes and a water feature. There is a daily market, plenty of food and craft shops, many cafes and restaurants and a larger monthly market. There is a new supermarket which is open every day.
There are many excellent restaurants between Monchique and the villa serving local specialities such as chicken piri-piri, presunto (smoked ham) and local cakes.

“Lovely place!”

Reviewed 5 Aug 2014

We truly enjoyed a week at Casa Abilheira - the house is great, and the scenery is perfect. The view from the house is fantastic, and the pool is great. Pedro was very helpfull, and knows a lot about the area.

“Lovely villa with great view, ideal for relaxing holidays”

Reviewed 8 Jun 2013

The villa is situated outside monchique, relatively high in the mountain, which gives it a majestic view down to the sea. There are plenty of rooms and bathrooms, so there would be no fight for the use of these. The swimming pool seems to stay around 20 degrees, which is ideally refreshing on a hot day, even if it takes a bit of will to enter it. Evenings in the mountain can be fresh, but a log fire and electric heaters are provided, and make the villa comfortably warm. Shops and beaches are easily accessible by car, monchique being a 10 minutes drive for the shops, portimao around 30 minutes for the beach. Pedro the gardener is there if you need anything, and a maid comes to keep everything clean. We had an issue in the booking with holiday rental when paypal cancelled the payment, but the owner was very accomodating and our booking was confirmed and paid through other means. In summary, we would stay there again to enjoy the great weather and the peaceful environment. We even brought the key back with us to try and make sure we could return there :-)
