“Heaven on earth”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

We booked this place due to the good reviews and we were not disappointed. Herdade Monte do Sol is situated close to the beaches of Arrifana and Monte Clerigo, a little bit outside of the lovely town of Aljezur. You will find here 5 lovely, small houses, each with a combined living room and kitchen with on the top a mezzanine with two beds and another bedroom on the ground floor. Nearby you have a nice pool with sea view and on the other side a lovely arranged place for your barbecue. The owners Sofia and Alvaro are the "cream topping", as they perfectly look after their guests. You will love their breakfast! As parents of two young kids (5 & 3 years old) we have to add that the pool is closed and secured and that Sofia and Alvaro have goats, horses, dogs, chicken, ducks, cats,...your kids will enjoy. Most of the beaches are a bit dangerous for small kids due to the waves but you should go on the other side of Aljezur to Amoreira beach (15 minutes drive). Don't go till the end but stop 500 m before the beach and you will find on your left calm water where your kids will have a lot of space to play and catch small crabs.

This small size resort offers a haven of luxury close to very good surfing beaches in the West Algarve. Villas are spacious, well equiped and very comfortable with a private outside sitting area. The extremely friendly hosts go out of their way to make your stay memorable. They serve an excellent breakfast with view on the ocean and give good advise on the surrounding area. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: All rooms are equally good
