The
Experience

This elegant house is tucked away at the end of a track lined with cork and eucalyptus trees and feels very secluded, but the quaint town of Monchique is just a five-minute drive and you can walk to two restaurants in ten minutes.

Find plenty of different areas to spread out in – a sitting room with games, books and an open fire, a terrace overlooking the magnificent garden, which rolls down towards distant views of the sea. Orange and lemon trees add heavenly aromas, and you’ll find a tennis court, heated pool and summer kitchen, as well as a vine-covered seating area to the side of the house.

This part of the Algarve is peaceful and the hills above Monchique are a protected natural reserve with trails you can hike or bike. The beach is 30 minutes away or you can drive to the Costa Vicentina, an hour away, for more beaches and wilder surf.

Reviews

We were greeted by the scents of eucalyptus and citrus as we arrived, and 'wowed' by the spectacular garden with sea views. This is a peaceful spot yet within an easy distance of Monchique. The ideal place to relax with friends or family

Location

The neighbourhood

The long-distance hiking trail 'Via Algarviana', which starts in Sagres in the south-west and ends at the Spanish border, passes by the Pink House and will take you into the mountains. Nearby Monchique has quaint cobbled streets and a central square lined with cafes and restaurants from which you can watch the bustle of local daily life. As well as restaurants, the town has a butcher and a wine shop

Local points of interest from Amanda Hornby

  • Situated in one of the most picturesque areas of Portugal, the beautiful Algarve mountains, the Pink House is set above sea level with stunning views of the coast. The house itself is surrounded by a beautifully established western facing garden.
  • The house itself is surrounded by manicured lawns, olive and citrus trees and features an outdoor heated pool, tennis court and secluded garden house. This oasis sleeps 8 people comfortably, featuring three double/twin bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms.
  • An idyllic retreat for those requiring a tranquil break with friends or family. The perfect spot to access and explore the beaches of Southern and Western Portugal. From the house there are many long walks…. Enjoy your days exploring the mountain.
  • The gardens surrounding the house are spectacular –Mr & Mrs Hornby, creators of the famous Pusey Garden of Oxfordshire, originally designed and planted the much-admired gardens over 50 years ago and lay host to large lawns, shady trees and flowering shrubs
  • The peace of the garden and pool offer total relaxation and every effort has been made to make your stay as comfortable as possible, there are numerous armchairs, sunbeds and mattresses for soaking up the sun.
  • For those requiring a restful holiday, the comfort and beauty of the Pink House is as near to paradise, winter and summer, as you can get.
