Monchique, Faro District, Algarve
Welcome to Casa Londrina, a stunning hoilday retreat in the hills of the Algarve, totally surrounded by nature.

This is a nature lover's paradise, and a birdwatcher's dreamland.  Wild flowers abound as buzzards circle overhead, and the background sound of trickling water from your own stream entices the frogs to come out to play.

Step out onto the covered terrace and take in the sights, sounds and scents of nature at its best.  Here you are not close to nature.....you are actually in it.  The views of the lush, green hills of the Monchique region will take your breath away; and the sound of almost constant birdsong will help you unwind during your break 'away from it all'.

Your accommodation is one half of the enchanting Casa Londrina (house of the London girl), set in 14,000m2 of private woodland, all for your enjoymen...

About the neighborhood
The area is one of the most beautiful in Portugal. Forests, mountains and lakes on your doorstep and the ocean less than a thirty minute drive away.

The local town of Monchique is truly enchanting with plenty of restaurants, cafes, art and craft shops and shops selling local delicacies.

In summer the municipal swimming pool is free of charge, set in a beautiful park with amazing views.

Walk around the town for a whole day, meandering through all the cobbled streets up to the famous convent above the town.

Walking and cycling are major pastimes in the area due to the undulating terrain, and a trip up to Foia, the highest point in the Algarve, is a challenge and a real pleasure once you reach the top.
