An intimate guesthouse-hotel nestled in a cork forest with views to the sea in the heart of the Monchique mountains. Vila Foia has 11 rooms: 6 double rooms, 2 family rooms, 1 suite and 2 studios with kitchenettes, all with balconies and wonderful views of the Algarve coastline. Lovely place to relax next to the salt-water swimming pool, walk the mountain trails and enjoy the local gastronomy. Generous buffet breakfast served daily. Village of Monchique is 3km away.

We stayed a week at Vila Foia. It is a fantastic place to spend some peaceful time in the mountains. Hanks and Michel have done an excellent job is making VIla Foia a place where you feel pampered. Everything is clean, rooms have very good size, breakfast is awesome. The pool area is very nice, with enough privacy and fantastic views from the mountain top all the way to the ocean. Hotel is five minutes away from the town, making it easy to go around. You can also get to many beaches within 30 to 45 minutes. We will definitely come back for a long stay as the staff takes perfect care of you all the time. Do not hesitate to select Vila Foia is you are staying around Monchique

What a nice hotel off the beaten track! Spectacular views and so much peace and quitness around. We loved the surroundings, the Monchique village and the fact that you are just 30 minutes away from the beach. Excellent breakfast served by lovely staff. We will return for sure!

We went for a group event and were very impressed. The property is lovely, with great views from the large balconies of the comfortable rooms. Margarita and the staff were so helpful and accommodating, and really helped to make this a great event. The meals were delicious and healthy, with plenty of drinks available all day. Would definitely recommend for a couples getaway or a group event.

We just spent a wonderful weekend at Vila Foia while attending a retreat. The hotel is in a beautiful setting, perched up on a mountain with an incredible view of the ocean below. Our room was very nice, clean, with comfortable bed and good AC. The bathroom too was great. The grounds are well kept and there is a pool that looked inviting but we didn't have time to use it. The staff was super accommodating especially the manager Margarita as well as Stephanie, another employee that was very helpful. We had several meals at Vila Foia and I loved the food. Very fresh and local ingredients. I would stay here again in an instant.

Just come away from the hotel after a 3 day stay and we had a super time. The setting on the hillside surrounded by cork oaks is amazing and of course the views all the way to the sea are magnificent. The staff are very helpful and friendly, meals really good and we can thoroughly recommend the hotel.

Brilliant stay. Room very comfortable, views from the spacious balcony fantastic and it was nice to have sunbeds there too, with extra table and chair for outside if wanted. The staff were all great and the food excellent.

My 19 year old daughter and I stayed here from Aug 12th-16th. Loved every minute. The setting is simply stunning, the staff were all very friendly and incredibly helpful and the accommodation lovely. We stayed in a suite as it had a kitchenette. It was very spacious and very nicely finished. Would definitely like to return one day. Peace perfect peace!

This little hotel is a real gem: nice rooms, all with their own balcony to enjoy the magnificent view, very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was also very good. Perfect location to explore the area and relax in the lovely garden after some serious walking.

We had a wonderfull stay at the Vilafoia. The rooms are large and bright and clean. The bed was very comfortable and spacious. The bathroom was clean and nicely done. The setting of the hotel on the hill side among the cork oak's is beautiful with a great vista towards Portimao and the ocean. The staff (Maggie) was very helpfull in helping us find things to do, information we needed and serves a great breakfast as well. We had beautiful hikes on the hill sides, visited the spa, ate wonderful meals at restaurants nearby and had a great time. We will be back for sure!!!
