Herdade Monte Do Sol
Herdade Monte Do Sol

A Secret hideaway in the Western Algarve

If your looking for a peace and tranquility the Monte Do Sol will meet your requirements . Each individual room is tailed to the highest standard complete with your own Log-fire.
The Hotel is elevated in its position and all rooms look onto a large private swimming pool and the distant view of the Sea.
The Herdade Monte Do Sol is run on a personal owner basis by the owners and their attention to detail and your personal requirements are their utmost priority .

The hotel is set-up for a Bed and Breakfast style occupancy with all amenities supplied in your room. Breakfast is of 5 star quality and with fresh fruit and many choices.
There are local restaurants for night meals within an easy 5 minute drive.

The Herdade Monte Do Sol offers something different to the normal hotels. `the owners love animals with their own chickens , peacocks horses, cats and dogs, so if you are an animal lover you will feel right at home.

Stayed there at the end of February 2020 and would fully recommend.

When Portugal were put on the UK green list we booked this at short notice, and couldn’t have hoped for a better place to stay in the Algarve.

We had a lovely 2 bedroom apartment spread over 2 floors, a kitchen area with everything you need and lovely bathroom and living area. The grounds are fantastic with all kinds of animals and a stunning pool area.

Due to COVID, a breakfast tray was delivered to our room every day with fresh breads, pastries, fruit and eggs - we are vegetarian and they catered for us perfectly, and on our last day when we were leaving before breakfast, they brought us a tray the previous night so we could eat before we left.

The resort is an easy 10-15 walk to restaurants, and it was useful to have a car so we could venture a bit further afield to different beaches/restaurants.

All the service we received was second to none and we couldn’t have wished for a more perfect holiday at Herdade Monte Do Sol.

The Herdade has 5 rooms all beautifully decorated, stylish finishing touches and a well equipped kitchen with all the appliance's needed for a 1 night stay ( as we had - only because they were full!) or a weeks stay. After a hectic couple of weeks we needed to have some peace and quite and rest, we slept so well with the nature sounds and very comfortable beds. Breakfast was delivered at a time we wanted and was so appetising, fresh fruits, breads and pastries alongside coffees/teas and juice. We sat outside at night looking at the clear sky which was lovely, being visited by the owners 4 dogs who were adorable. The pool was a welcome relief after our journey however the beaches around the area that are reachable within a 5/10 min drive were just breath taking. The owner who was so helpful and friendly, has a huge knowledge of the area and obvious love for the nature himself. We intend to go back in the winter and explore this beautiful part of Portugal more.

Cycling through the Algarve, we were booked into Herdade Monte Do Sol and spent two great nights; read on for details.

Located at a higher elevation in the area and set back off of a back road, HMDS has a pleasant feeling of isolation on a nicely landscaped property. From the spacious 1 bedroom unit (with full kitchen, living room and loft), the patio offered a nice view of the sunset. The heating units in the bedroom and loft worked well there while the kitchen/living room was not easily heated. The bed was uncomfortably firm and the pillows uncomfortably mushy. Breakfast was substantial, varied and satisfying. It was an easy 10-15 minute walk to the closest restaurants.

Aside from the bed, HMDS was perfect; if your travels take you to Aljezur, it's worth a look.

We loved our stay at Herdade Monte Do Sol. The view was stunning, we loved the swinging chair and hammock on the patio, the animals, and the location to some beautiful beaches and several very laid-back restaurants with excellent food. The grounds were very well-maintained, and it was such a peaceful environment. If you are looking for a relaxing retreat, then you should stay here!

We stayed here after six days hiking on the Rota Vincentina. This was a lovely reward after our exertions- it was a little more expensive than the other places we stayed along the route but it absolutely worth it. Gorgeous accommodation in an idyllic setting, the wonderful hosts are charming and provide a fantastic breakfast delivered to our room. Free of charge are the array of cats, dogs, chickens and peacocks that roam the property. As it was our final day of hiking, our hosts arranged d transport into Lagos for us also. Highly recommended!

Fantastic ‘hotel’ which feels like it is in the middle of nowhere but in reality it is just a short car drive away from the sea, restaurants and bars
It is a family owned complex comprising of 5 villas and another small building that doubles up as a reception/bar.
Sofia and her family are the owners whilst their daughter Danny manages the complex. But the whole family work together to provide a very unique experience. Nothing is too much trouble Besides the guests the family also comprises of 4 dogs, 4 cats and 5 peacocks who obviously think the complex has been built for them. They wander around popping in to see the guests and all live in total harmony with each other. There are also goats, horses, chickens and ducks An amazing breakfast buffet is brought to your door every morning. There is no restaurant but many nice typically Portuguese restaurants around. If you don’t feel like driving then if Danny is available she will taxi you to wherever you want to go
The pool is lovely and just in front of the properties.
Perfect for couples, families and we even had some honeymooners there!

We had a fantastic experience. The atmosphere resonated with a comfortable, relaxed feeling of a rural coastal villa. The terrace is a perfect spot to enjoy their delicious breakfast while taking in the amazing ocean views. The hosts were very friendly. The pets and animals were an amazing bonus. We are planning a return stay!

We were walking the Fishermans Trail and had two fantastic nights here. Owners were so friendly and eager to pass on information regarding the region. Sophia even did our washing for us. The room was wonderfully appointed, spacious, clean and wish great views over the pool and to the neighbouring properties. Loved the fresh produce for breakfast. Would thoroughly recommend this property. Only unfortunate thing was we couldnt stay longer. Perhaps next time.

We had a very relaxing experience at the Herdade - extremly nice, relaxed and open people, funny and unusual animals ( I have never seen a peacock so close!), cosy bed, warming fireplace and as a soundtrack only natures sounds - at night there is no car or machinery or anything "human made" to be heard. Fantastic!
