What a wonderful time spent with a professional and caring team. The property was beautiful, the amenities and pool were to die for and the energy of monchique was calming and a perfect answer to our need for a retreat while experiencing an authentic Portuguese experience in the beautiful town of Monchique.

An exceptional hotel and spa
An amazing hotel in an incredible location. The facilities, particularly the spa, are superb and the staff make the whole stay very special. The surrounding countryside is wonderful for walking and there are number of lovely villages and restaurants within walking or short cab distance. A superb place that doesn't really feel like any other hotel we'd been to.

Mountain Air in Monchique
We have been coming to Monchique for almost forty years and this is by far the best accommodation available. This is a beautiful resort with a top quality spa, comfortable beds and a very hospitable staff. The views from the terrace are amazing and there are many restaurants close by. We did day trips to Portimao which is only twenty minutes away. The mountain air and the piri piri chicken at O Castelo are both worthwhile.
