Monte da Vilarinha - Carrapateira (Sagres / Algarve)
Overlooking a beautiful valley in the very heart of Portugal’s Vicentine Coast, the Monte the Vilarinha is a hilltop refuge, simple rural retreat, a place at ease with nature and modern comfortable lodging all rolled into one. Plenty of little goodies abound in and around the Monte da Vilarinha, not least of which the location near some of Portugal most scenic beaches, nestled as they are against a backdrop of high black cliffs and wild coves.
You can almost taste the sea - simply superb.
But you can just as easily relax on the Monte’s terrace overlooking the valley and taking in the aroma of the countryside and smell of the land. The house itself is divided into three distinct areas: the Casa do Forno (Oven House), Casa da Ribeira (Riverside House) and Casa de Cima (House on the top). All the names are pretty self-explanatory and all constructed using local materials, such as slate and wood, with cane ceilings and lath and plaster walls.
Here’s a quick rundown of what the three houses have to offer:
