“Perfect Hideaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

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 area from the kitchen/ lounge complex, but easy to move from one to the other. Modern decorations with a definite flair and everything you needed. Breakfasts very a delight and varied, and the wife cooked cakes and cookies each day. The lounge/sitting area was very comfortable with a log fire going for the cool evenings. Both of the hosts were very friendly with good English although we tried our simple Portuguese with effect. Her knowledge of Portugal was excellent and therefore gave us many good ideas to follow in the area, which we would not have found out on our own. Five out of Five stars on all counts, and we will definitely return. Ideal for one or two couples for a stress free break with no television. However Wifi works well.

Room Tip: No need, as only two side by side which are identical. Light and airy and very quiet.

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.

It feels like you would be staying with friends while you are on holiday, that's how we would describe our time at Monte do Sapeiro. It's an amazing place to be. If you saw the pictures of this place and you liked them you should continue reading.
Why a place for all senses? This place is in the middle of a beautiful landscape and Pedro and Natercia have directed the rooms (just 2) with view over the valley. In the morning you can watch the sun rise from your room, but also on several days you can enjoy passing the mist coming from the seaside. It's a pleasure to wake up. The next pleasure is the breakfast - there is all and more. Every day a different joy of taste made by Natercia (marmalade, cake, cookies etc).
Then we would recommend going to the small market and buying fresh fish and regional vegetables for dinner. Good biological Portuguese wine you can buy at Monte do Sapeiro.
If you are not sure or need a recommendation which beach or trip is the best ask Natercia or Pedro and they will tell you about the weather, wind or tide. After being on the beach (great surfing spots), countryside or what ever you like, coming back to Monte do Sapeiro you will find a place to relax. As you already could see on the photos this place is very individually decorated with a lot of sense for detail. In this environment its easy to find a place with fits your mood. If you like, you can prepare your dinner at Monte do Sapeiro, if you need tips Pedro is happy to support, try sardines or lulas with onion and garlic from the grill. Finish your dinner with a Medronho made by Pedro. If you are not in the mood for cooking try one of the traditional restaurants in the area, there is a solution for every taste. If you look for something special you should ask for tips.
Monte do Sapeiro is a great place to stay but more than this it is Natercia and Pedro who make the difference. It is their personal way of hospitality and their love for the region and tradition that makes a holiday memorable. We were very happy to be their guests at this beautiful place.

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. Looked forward to waking up to sunrise and breakfast every morning. This B&B is perfect for a couple looking for a quiet retreat. There are many beaches, especially surfing beaches nearby and some quaint restaurants. There is also facilities to cook your own meals. Sagres is a short drive away and well worth visiting. I give this place 11 out of 10 and will be back again most definitely!

Room Tip: Either room is perfect

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!

Everything was perfect! We had a wonderful stay at Monte Sapeiro and spent over a week at this peaceful place. From the rooms you have a fantastic view over the valley. Natercia and Pedro are very kinds hosts :-)!

I stayed here with a friend of mine and can confirm that it was absolutely beautiful. The design of the rooms and the kitchen-social area are gorgeous. The area around the resort/bnb is natural and not very developed. There are not big hotels, but great place to eat wonderful seafood. I think it would be a great place to go to in winter as well.
