Very professional providing international level training alongside cork forests, flower meadows and lakes for fun riding. Excellent hotel facilities. A pool and sun terrace with views across the countryside and eagles soaring around. Good lake fishing and tracks for cycling. Most sympathetic and helpful management and staff - nothing is too much trouble. Also good wine with meals. Everything of...

Loved the place. You feel so welcomed, everything emanates peace and tranquility. The rooms are very nice and comfortable. There's nothing but silence at night, and a starry sky. There are good walks in the property, nice lakes, where you can swim or ride the little boat. There's permaculture, and beautiful horses and the chance to try "Holistic Riding", with...

Some of the best times of my life have been spent with dear friends at this resort. An easy drive in your rental car from either Lisbon or Faro airport, it is a surfers paradise and a rustic nature resort. Friendly, private, sublime and remote are some adjectives I find to describe it. Food lovers will love the local fare,...

Monte Velho was a five star experience for us, and a real find. If the phrase “getting there by dirt roads” puts you off, you will probably want to consider another place. The resort grounds are located hillside with grand vistas of the Atlantic and nothing but pine nut orchards between you and the closest village, Carrapatiera. It is an...

Perfect rooms, excellent views, good facilities, perfect restaurant. What to say more. If you want to relax, go here. Stayed here for 2 nights and wished i could have stayed longer. Surrounded by beautiful nature. Including a nice neach for swimming, surfing and relaxing. Also great hiking area.

Monte Velho Ecoresort, http://www.montevelhoecoresort.com/ (former Monte Velho Nature Resort) is definitely a unique and excellent place to enjoy all forms of beauty: nature and human kind. Situated on a hill with a incredible view until the ocean, the main house, rooms and yoga shalas are all created with a loving and warm-hearted style, making you feel welcome and at home....

This is the place you will continue to dream of long after your stay there. The incredible tranquility of this resort surrounded by pine forests, hiking trails, natural beaches and incredible surf, makes it the ideal place to escape from the craziness of the real world and remove yourself from it all. The energy and spirit of the Monte Velho...

Monte Velho is in the attractive hills near Carrapateira, an easy drive from nearby golden beaches. It's tranquil and beautiful, and I loved the bright yoga space, with its underfloor heating and lovely wooden floor. It's spotlessly clean, with lovely views. But it has a few drawbacks - it's not really walking distance from the sea, anywhere to eat, or...

We chose to stay at Monte Velho because the paddock/horses for Holistic Riding program is within view from the resort. The resort is about 5km from Carrapateira off the main road heading towards Vila do Bispo - about 3km from Carrapateira, look for signs on the left for Monte Villarinha and a picture of a horse and turn left into...
