Drive up the winding road to Monchique and you’ll catch the heady fragrance of pine, eucalyptus and mimosa from the woodland-cloaked hills. This sets the scene for one refreshingly rural holiday. Perched on the hillside, this is a market town in the true...Known for its clean spring water, pure air and hospitable people.

Excellent property with outstanding views in very quiet area but close enough to Monchique

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week at the villa during September, the location is stunning with views all the way to the coast from the pool and veranda. Wonderfully quiet and peaceful but close enough to restaurants a five minute drive away. Villa was surprisingly spacious and had everything required for a week's stay. The drive down to the property is challenging but well worth it for the views alone. Can't wait to return

Fantastic views of the Algarve!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful views of the Algarve from the swimming pool and veranda. We had a lovely time and enjoyed the beautiful pool and we'll kept garden. We would recommend this villa to anyone who would like to get away from it all and relax. Pica - Pau is also a good location to explore the Western Algarve beaches too, which are much less crowded. Even though it was in the middle of a heatwave, the villa was lovely and cool inside. We will definitely return to Monchique again.

Excellent, secluded villa in wonderful part of the Algarve

  • 5 of 5

Negotiated tricky approach road OK. Villa in excellent condition. Gardener very busy until 7pm!

TV a bit small but no English channels really available, so not a problem for me.

Owner visited once to check on my rusty firemaking skills. Never saw anyone else near the villa for the whole week - just what I was looking for.

Well equipped kitchen and plenty of extra bedding for colder nights in the mountains.

Thoroughly recommend this property if you are after peace and quiet.

Hope to book again later this year

Stunning Vistas.

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying at Villa PicaPau! such a beautiful area in Monchique and close to the town with supermarkets etc. In distance of a lot of nice places to visit such as beaches and zoo marine. Very peaceful villa and lovely surroundings, the garden with the pool and the View of the Sea were highlights of the property. The lady who manages the house was very welcoming, and everything we needed was provided. Would definitely recommend staying and we will be returning. Thank you for your hospitality and good communication.

Michael and Kim.
