Monte Rosa is situated in the South-West corner of the Algarve, 9km from the historical town Lagos and 2km from the authentic village Barão de S. João. You are away from mass-tourism, quiet and peaceful in the middle of rural Algarve. In an accidented landscape, with lots of almond-, olive –and fig trees, a number of old farmhouses have been rustically renovated into comfortable apartments and rooms. The atmosphere is cosy; nice contacts are spontaneously created.
Depending on budget and group-size you can choose between a room and a fully equipped apartment. All accommodations have their own bathroom, with a shower or bath and a nice outdoor seating area. Some have a kitchenette or kitchen, others share the outside kitchen facilities. Besides there exist a limited possibility to choose an idyllic spot for a tent or caravan; you can also rent a log cabin. The camping guests can use the shared outside kitchen; due to fire hazard we cannot allow camping guests to use their own cooking equipment. There is a common room with a huge terrace, which serves as well as a restaurant. Also there is a special activity room, where you can do yoga for instance. Breakfast is served on a daily basis and from April till September a shared dinner is offered three times a week. There is a bar, a library and a playground. The complex is surrounded by a colourful garden, with several small pathways, terraces and sheltered seating areas. There is a swimming pool (5-10m) with lovely wooden deck chairs to relax. In the activity room a number of workshops, like yoga and biodanza, are weekly organized for the “locals”; guests can always step in.
At Monte Rosa you’ll never get bored: there are a number of excursions and activities that can be organized, like kayaking along the coast, a dolphin-tour or a downhill mountain bike trip from Monchique to the coast. There are a twenty descriptions of walking tours in the beautiful surroundings and along the fascinating cliff coast. Transport to and from the starting points can be arranged, as well as a packed lunch. Also guided walking tours (with or without donkey), (body-)surf lessons or board-rent, horseriding tours, yoga, meditation, coached walking, rent-a-bike and massage, all belong to the many possibilities.
