About the neighborhood
Moncarapacho Algarve - a rural retreat but with easy access to the beaches and the Eastern Algarve
Moncarapacho is a small country village in the eastern Algarve not far from Faro. It is set in beautiful countryside which is home to growers of oranges, lemons and figs, and the area is also a big producer of flowers. The village itself is situated 8km northeast of Olhao and about 10km east of Estoi. 

Being in the less commercialised Eastern Algarve, the area is quite quiet. Being a rural village, Moncarapacho is certainly not overrun by holidaymakers, although it is becoming a more popular destination along with a few of its neighbouring villages. The real attraction of the village is its relaxed and friendly
Getting around
Monte das Figueiras is designed by the owners, a creative couple from Holland. Christian, former owner and creative director of a well known advertising agency, famous for many campaigns in Holland, like 'Even Apeldoorn Bellen'. Author of novels and poems. His wife is Will Kellermann, painter of the 'Romantic Adventurism', a colourful artist, her paintings selling worldwide. She is responsible for the interior decoration and the choice of materials. This ownership makes the house very special, both inside and out.
