Vila Monte

A Hidden Gem in the Algarve

I was thrilled to be traveling to Portugal for a week, but if I’m being honest, I was even more excited that my first stop would be the Algarve. I had picked out the perfect hideaway and I could not wait to experience it in person.

Vila Monte is a beautiful, farmhouse inspired property tucked away in Moncarapacho, a 25 minute ride from the Faro airport. A completely updated property – only 55 rooms and sprawling acres of gardens and olive trees create the perfect laidback atmosphere.

From the moment I arrived I knew I was somewhere special. The lobby feels more like a living room than a public space, with direct views into the restaurant kitchen and a bar offering a variety of specially gins – the Portuguese love their gin & tonics!

The rooms are enormous and impeccably decorated, with ample outdoor space for relaxing the day away.

If you’re a foodie, don’t miss the on-site restaurant A Terra where I enjoyed a wonderful al fresco lunch that rivaled any meal we had throughout the week.

Vila Monte is a delightful property, perfect for a relaxing getaway with authentic Moorish vibes. I highly recommend you check it out the next time you’re in the Algarve.
