We've plotted your holiday accommodation as accurately as possible. But for some smaller hotels or villas the map may pinpoint the centre of the nearest town rather than the property itself, so make sure you read the location description too.
This is our 24-hour phone service. You can use it to book days out, find out the local bus times and let us know about any problems that crop up. Prefer to speak to someone face to face? You can call us to arrange a personal visit too.
Rustic country cottage with private pool
Your guide to Monchique, Algarve
“Sensational views, mountain walks and pine forests – if that sounds like your type of holiday then let Monchique work its magic on you.”
This rustic country cottage benefits from amazing countryside views.
Tucked away on a wooded hillside, Cerca da Cima looks out over the ocean and hills dotted with small villages. There’s a really relaxed feel about this former pub. For one, it’s surrounded by greenery. Vines corkscrew around the trellis, an ancient fig tree spreads its canopy across the verandah and a flower garden surrounds the stone bathing pool. This, by the way, has been cleverly created from the former cistern, so it’s not huge but pretty nonetheless.
Simple and pretty on the outside, it’s just as lovely inside. Colourful covers and painted bedsteads offset whitewashed walls in the bedrooms. In the living room, floral prints combine with rustic wood and mellow terracotta. But the country cottage charm hasn’t been kept at the expense of creature comforts – the bathroom is marble and the kitchen well fitted.
Life can be as quiet and peaceful here as you want, but you’re not as remote as you feel. Shops and restaurants are within easy reach because road access, still narrow enough to deter the curious, has brought this beautiful area into closer touch with Monchique, less than four kilometres away.
Cerca de Cima is featured in the following brochures:
