It is a fabulous place to stay and enjoy peace, nature and beautiful facilities. The hospitality is 5*****. It was home away from home. We will come back for sure. We wish we stayed for at least 2 weeks!!! We couldn't ask for better.
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 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 the most fantastic family holiday at Monte do Sol. You couldn’t ask for better, more friendly hosts, the breakfast is lovely, the setting is peaceful and the villas are spacious and well equipped. We have 3 children, ages 11, 9 and 3 and they all loved the holiday. The swimming pool is great, there’s a pool table and we all loved the dogs and cats roaming around. You are a 3 minute drive from Arrifana (our favourite surfing beach in Portugal) and a short drive to bordeira and amoreira (which got the 3 year old’s vote for best beach because of the river). It’s a beautiful part of the world and we will be back. Thanks S and A!
