“Monte da Cunca, my favorite place in Aljezur”

Monte da Cunca!
Excellent, I'll frequent it again!!!!!
with surfing, kayaking and paragliding opportunities and no supplies I was taken care of outside of the staffs busyness and deadlines with the finest hospitality under the conditions.
While in the midst of renovations at the height of maintaining the organic gardens by weeding and planting, visitors at their leisure also contributed to building staircases out of eucalyptus trunks, prepared cullinary wonders from out of the shared kitchen with use of the wood fired oven in which good ol' fashioned sourdough bread, pizza baked sweet potato, squashes and sooo much more was provided.
The family run establishment managed to provide me with fabulous service such that I could imaging getting on my short notice when I was not equipped for it.
They provided me with surf board, wetsuits, offered to show me landing zones and launch sites for paragliding and drove me around to tour the surrounding area as well as set up travel arrangements back to the Lisbon airport.
I met many wonderful pople staying there. WE had a lots of fun together. A most memorable stay for sure I'll do it again. Highly recommend for outdoor adventurists like me.

wow what an adventure! The rooms where all handycrafted and each of them very special. From the first moment on, we felt good, like home, free and ready for every adventure that might apear along the time we planned to be there. We always could find our time of togetherness, when we wanted and also always good company by people which also stayed there. All in all a very nice time and very relaxing and cosy.

Monta da Cunca is your perfect place to stay to escape the hustle and bustle of city life and get back to your roots. Situated in a beautiful part of the south west Algarve, near Carrapateira, Cunca offers you beach, sand dunes, fresh water lagoon, eucalyptus forest, organic garden and rolling greens hills all in one.
The accommodation are individually handcrafted, self contained apartments in a beautifully renovated Portuguese farmhouse.
The farm is a self sufficient organic farm run principally by volunteers. You also have the opportuity to pick your own vegetables from the garden, go horse/donkey riding, participate in a wood fired pizza oven night or enjoy a romantic evening alone with freshly picked mussels from the beach.

  • Liked — Getting back to nature, everything is hand made, and location, location, location!
  • Disliked — That we couldnt have the whole place to ourselves!
