Home away from home, peaceful and quiet. Great central location. Stayed in a Comfortable Studio apartment in a beautiful and safe setting. Away from the city but central to many attractions within a 30 minute drive. Great hiking routes right from their doorstep too. Great service, friendly staff. Loved picking our herbs straight from the garden. Great place to go out and sightsee and explore and then come and unwind. Had massages and yoga too. Very quiet and peaceful place. Will be back

Lovely spot for remote working and writing Very nice spot, I had my own appartment with an outdoor area. I loved the gardens, the yoga studio, a wonderful massage, and the food was excellent. The chef was very nice and accommodated my dietary requirements.i didn't have a car but I worked from here for a week, WiFi is ok, and I enjoyed walking. One thing I would improve is a better induction when you arrive to explain where everything is.

Close to the beaches and the Zoo, in a quiet area Well located, in a calm rural area, very close to the Lagos Zoo. You can choose if you want to have breakfast (for an additional fee). During summer, they prepare dinner a few days a week. You'll need to book it upfront.

Beautiful place in nature with good vibes! We had a beautiful stay at Monte Rosa!the place is very special, within nature and so relaxing. The people that work and stay there are so kind. our 4 year old could help in the garden by planting seeds, our dog was so welcome, we really felt at home. You could be staying here really private and also easy to interact with other guests at the pool or at breakfast. We will def come back :) the little house where we stayed in was basic and perfect for us. Especially the garden with your own space was so nice in summer.

Een kleine oase in de Algarve In juni zijn we met de camper op pad geweest en in de buurt van Lagos, Portugal, neergestreken bij Monta Rosa. Een kleine B&B met een eigen zwembadje maar waar ook een aantal camperplaatsen zijn. Wij hadden 3 dagen gereserveerd (via SVR) en zijn door het bijzonder vriendelijke personeel ontvangen. We waren op dat moment de enige campergasten en mochten zelf een plekje uitzoeken. Omdat onze camper met 7,20 m toch wel groot te noemen was, had ik bij het op- en afrijden wel wat extra aanwijzingen nodig maar verder probleemloos gestaan. Weer eens heel iets anders dan de gebruikelijke camping en camperplaatsen. Dankjewel voor jullie goede zorgen en vriendelijke ontvangst. Als we in de buurt zijn komen we zeker terug.

This is a unique place and needs to be experienced to appreciate it. I spent a week at Monte Rosa and it wasn’t enough as this was one of the most relaxing holidays I’ve had in a long time. The staff and volunteers were really kind and friendly but not overly so. You could completely be yourself and engage with nature as well as other guests who were staying. I had a lot of laughs especially round the pool on a hot 🥵 day. I’m already looking forward to my next visit. Thank you ❤️ Anita

A gem in the Algarve Fabulous in every way! Calm and quiet, amazing food, lovely pool, lovely staff. Loved the outdoor kitchen and hammocks. A gem in the Algarve. My favourite beach by a mile is Praia do Zavial - unspoilt and beautiful. Intermarche in Budens has everything you need including cheap petrol!

Parel in de Algarve Dit is werkelijk waar een paradijsje op aarde. Zo'n fijne plek, vriendelijk en behulpzaam personeel, ruime en zeer schone verblijven, mooi tuin om doorheen te wandelen, heerlijk zout water zwembad en vers eten uit eigen moestuin! Een absolute must voor rustzoekers, wandelaars, fietsers en levensgenieters!

THE place to relax Surrounded by nature, Monte Rosa is a wonderful place to relax. It is situated close to Lagos Zoo and with easy access to main beaches. The staff is very friendly and you can even book breakfast and dinner (during high season), if you like. I've been travelling for over 40 countries so far, and I can surely recommend Monte Rosa for your peaceful stay.

Sítio perfeito para relaxar! Estávamos a buscar algum sítio para fugir do caos e stress dos dias actuais, e ouvir nada além dos pássaros e folhas ao vento. Pois demos muita sorte de encontrar o Monte Rosa. Escolhemos uma cabana com cozinha e casa de banho e ficamos dias a aproveitar a piscina, o silêncio, os jardins e o clima do Algarve. As praias paradisíacas de Lagos ficam a apenas 15 minutos de carro. Porém, em um dia alugamos bikes directamente na receção e fizemos um lindo passeio. O staff é adorável! Penso que poucas vezes fomos recebidos com tanta atenção e vontade de ver um sorriso. Definitivamente uma estadia a se repetir

I had a great time in Monte Rosa. It´s a nice, cosy and pleasant place with all nice people around. Traveling and biking alone here was always nice to meet the people working here and other guests. We had a very nice dinner together from the chef (hazelnut burger and sweet potato with spinach sauce). And we wnt together to The italian restaurant in Barão de São João (Ca la Mora). We even danced together. It was a great time. Biking a lot on a very nice bike and a nice surrounding. I had a great time.
Thanks,

Dear dear people from Monte Rosa,
For 3 mothers with 3 babies, Monte Rosa was the perfect place to take some rest, have nice conversations and to be able to enjoy Vini’s delicious food. During breakfast and dinner we made a mess, we are sorry for that.
And Laura is the best!!!! It was because of her that we could really enjoy the yoga, knowing that all our babies are safe and well taken care of. We will come back. Our greetings, 

Gitta, Eef, Marieke, Waldemar, Nox and Otis.

We extend a huge thank you to you all for making our visit so special. It’s difficult to sum up exactly why Monte rosa has that magic nostalgia that makes staying so unique. But the people, the garden, the soft and embracing atmosphere and the warmth & the welcome is a large of it. We very much hope we will return. With our very best wishes to all of you,

Thank you for this very nice stay. It was a perfect break from the winter in the north. It was a delight spending some relaxing time in the Round House. Breakfast in the garden, in the sunshine, listening to the birds sing every morning was a definate highlight, as was spending time doing yoga in the beautiful Round House, enjoying the delicious dinners and chatting with the staff. Everyone was friendly and had lots of knowledge about the area, walks, restaurants and places to visit. Overall a great stay!

Monte Rosa is a pearl and a little oasis in the crackling dry hills of Western Algarve.

Thank you so much for a lovely stay in this special place. The food was yummy! Thank you. I loved the homegrown tomatoes and strawberries. Such a great space for yoga too. Namaste,

We found all things, like Arianne‘s description. If you search for a wonderful place to start your Lisboa Adventure, here it is. With Buslines 706 and 727 in front of the house, it’s easy to start. Tram 28 starts a few minutes away. It was our first visit to Lisboa, but we‘ll come back.

Arianne was an incredible hostess. I loved the house, everything we could expect for two people. Comfortable lounge and the bed are more than better. I am sure that we will return to the house that I liked so much!!

Monte Rosa feels like ‘coming home. Thank you Marieke, Vale, and Melis for the familiar way of being together. I enjoyed the place, the village, the kind and nice people of the community… It’s a way of living that touched my heart. Monte Rosa may be proud of you!! Thank you so much and see you again! With love,

Thank’s to every one of the Monte Rosa team (including Boris and Floris and the chickens). I have had a wonderful time here with you in Sandra’s paradise! Good luck with everything and hope we’ll meet again.

Dear Arianne, thank you very much for your kind hospitality. I found your apartment very convenient. I was visiting ISEG Business School for a conference and I believe that among all 150 participants I stayed the closest to the venue. I am only sorry that I could not stay longer. To other guests, I recommend visiting also places outside of Lisbon, such as the palace and gardens of Queluz, Cabo da Roca – a cape that forms the westernmost continental Europe, and Cascais and Estoril. Farewell and goodbye.

From a Soulcollage retreat of 5 faces of the Wild Woman, this has been exactly the right place at the right time! I have felt like part of a loving and slightly dysfunctional family from the start. My group of Soulcollage is now a tribe I will keep with me forever! Fiona, Gerry, Jacqueline, and the gentle soft Sandra; love you all.

I love this place. So peaceful. So many little corners to relax in. I love the hummocks in the trees and the Round House for singing. Eating outdoors is a real treat and the food is delicious. I would love to come back again.

Thank you for such a relaxing and wonderful experience at Monte Rosa. It’s magical here, I will miss the gorgeous nature and waking up to the sound of birds. I will return! Oh! One more thing: Thank you to all of the staff who took such good care of everyone. I’m extremely grateful…
