A cousy confortable houese stay in a unique place to enjoy the countryside with the air from the sea and the saulty smeal of clean atlantic sea waters. The family will keep good memories of this few days we stayed at Isabbel's place where she took good care of us in a supper confortable place with delicious breakfast to enjoy the morning just looking into the pine trees. Very clean with confortable king size bed. Thank you Isabel.

“Absolutely Perfect”

The cottage is in the countryside, in the most beautiful and peaceful setting, so it is really tempting to spend the day relaxing on the private patio, basking in the sunshine. However, once we did venture out, the local beaches are gorgeous and relatively quiet, there are many opportunities to take part in activities such as surfing, walking and horse riding.The drive through the hills to Monchique was spectacular. Isobel, our host, provided food and a wealth of information about places to visit and good restaurants. We have stayed in some beautiful hotels and cottages throughout Europe, but this was without doubt our favourite, and we will definitely return to Monte Da Xara in the not too distant future.

“A haven of peace and tranquillity”
Reviewed 5 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Located about 3 miles from the civil parish of Rogil, the small cottage house of Monte da Xara sits on slight plateau. There are open views of the countryside back towards the Atlantic coast on one side and the forested heath land of Monte do Velho to the other.
What strikes you most when you stay here is how quiet, peaceful and restful the environment is. There are a variety of birds and butterflies in the area and the flowers particularly along the coast are just amazing.
The cottage is comfortable and practical with basic cooking facilities and this is supported by the owner, Isabel Lobato. Isabel is a wonderful host who will provide a lovely breakfast (usually delivered the night before) and also a wealth of information about the area and the best places to visit.
Isabel is ably supported by her black Labrador ‘Mar’ who will usually greet you when you arrive back from a day out. The coastal paths and beaches are just stunning. There are two major hiking routes in the area – The Fisherman’s trail and the Historical Way – but if you are just looking to stretch your legs after a nice meal on the terrace – there are many short walks direct from the cottage. If you like to visit the local towns: Odeceixe and Aljezur have a wealth of history and culture to explore – including museums, castles and windmills. There are many local shops close by for provisions – including a large supermarket in Aljezur. You’ll need a car to stay here but nowhere is really very far away – Faro airport is about 115 km/72 miles - well under 2 hours depending on your speed or inclination. Monte da Xara is a haven for those who want get away from the pressures of everyday life but don’t take my word for it – spend some time here and you’ll see what I mean.
