Nice little apartment on a hill side. Excellent view on the mountains and the Sea in the distance.

A very comfortable and quiet place
I stayed for 2 nights in Vilafoia and wished I had stayed longer. It is a perfect place to get away from it all and to just chill out. The welcome I received was outstanding-it was clear Margarita took her job very seriously and genuinely cared that guests feel at home there. She emailed directions in advance which were easy to follow and got me there with no trouble whatsoever. Each room has a large balcony which gets the sun in the morning and is a great place to watch the sky (and the shooting stars) at night. The entire property is spotless; rooms are cleaned every day. Breakfast is of a very high standard, fresh and delivered with a smile on the patio overlooking the immaculately kept gardens. I appreciated the coffee (and tea) available in the afternoon and the use of the fridge. It’s a shame they don’t have an on-site restaurant but there are three restaurants within walking distance-which is no harm as the portions in both restaurants I visited were huge!! I would recommend VilaFoia wholeheartedly and hope to return some day in the future. It really is worth the effort of getting there. Até à próxima! Abraços, Brian

A little piece of heaven
What a beautiful location for a few days away. Peaceful, stunning scenery, a home away from home. You definitely need a car to get about but would recommend having a car to explore the Algarve anyway.

Best stay in Monchique area hands down
Wonderful stay in peaceful Monchique. Loved the location and service with fabulous views on hills above Monchique. The studio was quiet and private from the rest of the rooms and a perfect area to relax and enjoy the local hiking in the hills. Excellent service and friendly multilingual staff. Highly recommend.

Boutique like hotel. Very friendly staff, good bed and great breakfast. Floor heating makes the room a little top warm, but we opende the door to the terrace and it was fine, although not very sustainable. Turning of heating took 24 hours

Once you got there, wonderful experience with beautiful property, great views, welcoming hotel staff and terrific breakfast. Getting there difficult, up steep and winding dirt road, would not attempt access after dark.
