Not exactly a spa but there is a jacuzzi/pool and lovely outside kitchen/sitting area/garden.Very tastefully decorated with superb beds and a welcoming 'common area' with woodburner. Excellent breakfast.

Spa d'Alma was recommended by friends so we hoped it would be as good as they said it was - and I'm pleased to say it more than lived up to our expectations! Our room was large and the bed very comfortable. Theo greeted us warmly, showed us round the beautiful house and gardens and invited us to help ourselves... More

This place is magical. High up in the hills. Incredibly peaceful. We were greeted by Theo who showed us everything we needed. He gave us a great restaurant recommendation which we wouldn't have found otherwise. In the morning his wife served a fantastic breakfast of fresh, local food. This is a place I know i will return to!

The welcome from Theo and Manuela at Casa Spa d'Alma is outstanding, and you are immediately made to feel totally at home as you are introduced to this beautiful property in the hills near Alfrece and Monchique. The attractive grounds are made for relaxation in hammocks, loungers or chairs that are surrounded by flowers, fruit trees and vines. There is... More

We came straight to the Casa from the Airport and immediately felt at home. Our host greeted us and showed us around and explained everything. After unpacking, once we made our way to the pool to relax on the sunbeds he even brought us a jug of icewater with slices of their own lemons, seldom did we get a warmer... More

Surrounded in a beautiful area in Portugal full of mountains, this place is the perfect get away. Lovely garden filled with flowers and orange and lemon trees, with a pool just big enough with beautiful view and a jaccuzi. We had the room in the back of the garden, which was very spacious (the bathroom as well!), clean and beautifully... More

This is a great little find in the mountains just outside Monchique. Theo and his wife manuella were wonderful hosts. The breakfast whilst simple was more than adequate with a large variety of fruit, granola, ham cheese, eggs, croissant, fresh baguettes and home made jam. (Try the pumpkin jam. It is yummy). Our room was large and wry clean with... More

This is a place like no other. If you want excellent food (and you can get Theo to cook) you should ask. If you don't want anything but just lying around and not being bothered by anyone or anything, this is it. If you want the possibility to have good insightful conversations without judgement or questioning, this is also the... More

We stayed for 3 nights in September. The place is a hidden gem tucked away from hustle and bustle of coastal towns. Beautiful grounds, breakfast is to die for and Manu and Theo are very hospitable and proud owners of this peaceful place. They gave us recommendations to the beaches, restaurants and things to enjoy in this lovely area. If... More
