We stayed here for 3 nights in February. I don't know what I appreciated more, the warm weather or the wonderful breakfast spread awaiting us every morning. There were homemade pastries every morning with different marmalade's Natercia makes. I loved the blueberry and chocolate. We also were served smoked salmon, cheeses, yogurts, fresh cut fruits, fresh squeezed juices....the list goes... More

My husband and I stayed at Monte do Sapeiro for 3 nights and had an amazing time! The setting is incredibly relaxing, rooms are clean and nicely designed, and the breakfasts each morning were delicious. The location is perfect for exploring the many beautiful beaches in the area. I would highly recommend staying at Monte do Sapeiro.

This is a great place to stay. Its a beautiful part of Portugal, much more interesting than the south coast and far less crowded. There are big sandy beaches nearby and great walks on the coast or inland. The hosts are really kind, hospitable and very relaxed. It's very nice being able to relax in the evening and cook for...

We had seen Tavira and Silves, which now laid behind us almost like a diffuse memory when we came closer to our aim: Monte do Sapeiro. Road. Trees. Road. Landscape. No houses passed our sight. At the first instant of our few days at the Monte things became pure. That was exactly what we exspected to find. Though we were... More

The young couple who owned this lovely B&B made our four day stay an absolute delight. Set in wonderful countryside on a lonely quiet unmade up road, with easy access to the local village of Carrapteira, and with large bedroom patio doors looking directly on the valley below and hills around,the situation was inspiring. The bedrooms were in a separate... More

Very nice people and place. Location, service, room and atmosphere. The breakfast is fantastic!!! But you can cook there as well. Near the most beautiful beaches of the Costa Vicentina, Carrapateira, Amado...(you need a car) Thanks Natercia & Pedro, great hosts. Only need wifi internet in rooms :P.

I cannot recommend this place enough. Location, price, service, rooms, views and atmosphere were all exquisite. It is very romantic, set in a remote valley of rolling hills and rising sun. Its a short 4km drive from the nearest beach (A car is needed). Breakfast couldn't be better, with a selection of homemade yoghurts, muesli, breads, jams, teas and cake.... More

Monte do Sapeiro is in every way the most perfect place to stay! We love the beautiful quiet setting in an unspoilt valley, the perfect decorated rooms, the beautiful beaches of nearby Carrapateira and most of all the great hospitality of Natercia & Pedro!
