Amazing views from our room, you can see for at least 30 miles over Portimao and out to sea. Very friendly and helpful staff. Large comfortable room and bed with good sized balcony. Great breakfast. Short walk or even shorter drive to a very good restaurant with a great view.

I had a very nice stay here for two days while going on a couple of hiking trips. The rooms are large and very nice, the included breakfast is the best, and they have a pool and large outside area. The staff is so friendly. The only minus is that it's far from the centre (3 km) and you'll have...

This was my last hotel after a cycling holiday throughout the Algarve. It was a great place to end! The Vilafoia, as others have mentioned, is above Monchique off the road up to Foia. It's a slog at the end of a long day if you're on a bicycle, but well worth it. Even in a car, it's pretty remote....

This small 'hotel' is definitely off the beaten path, but offers modern accommodations that belie its remote location. Situated high in the hills surrounded by cork forest, the terraced grounds are immaculately kept and offer a view all the way out to the ocean some 50-60km away. The rooms were very spacious and clean. Plenty of storage space, heated flooring...

Beautiful guesthouse with all comfort, nicely situated in the hills of Foia. Beautiful garden. Rooms are very clean. Excellent if you you like the silence and tranquility of nature. Breakfast is more than ok.

We had only one night at Vilafoia but enjoyed every moment. The view from high up the mountain overlooking the plain to the Atlantic is gorgeous. The friendly staff, tasty breakfast buffet, and comfortable room made it a perfect retreat.

We spend one week in a beautiful studio of the Vilafoia. We enjoyed the spectacular view over the costal plateau to the sea from the Foia montain. We recommend and will come back! We enjoyed the versatility of the location, easy to reach the south- and west-coast or go hiking.

The staff is rude! Excuding Mr. Tiago that is a very kind person the rest of the staff is not able to do his job.The German lady is unpleasant, and another lady threated me to call the police if I had not sent immediately to them the keys of the Guesthouse that I inadvertley took with me. Mah!!!

Vilafoia lies quietly in the middle of Monchique. It is a small comfortable guest house with a lovely garden, a schwimming pool and a fantastic look down to the coast of the Algarve. The rooms are furnished attractively and clean.The matresses are absolutely wonderful :-) The staff is very friendly, helpful and dedicated. The breakfast buffet offers a big choice....

A really nice hotel with a friendly staff. Quiet and very peaceful place surrounded by the cork oaks with a beautiful panorama, Take advantage of the natural Algarve without being far from the beach. Good restaurants nearby.
