Reviewed 25 December 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Stayed here a week and sorry to have to go home. Cannot fault this villa and we have stayed in many far more expensive places. Extremely good value. Superbly appointed, clean and comfortable. The owners have done a great job in creating this lovely holiday home. A very peaceful, safe, private and sunny location with breathtaking views of the coast....

Management response:

Sean it was lovely to have you and your family stay and look forward to your return next year. Have a great New Year and thank you for your review.

We were three couples and have just spent 2 weeks at this fantastic villa. Everything at the villa is “exceptional” and is exactly as described on the website. I speak for all six of us and say this because I have just read the previous review which seems very strange if not deliberately vindictive. I must commend the owner in...

Management response:

Reviewed 5 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Villa Vida Nova is a very nice house; we booked in 2016, and stayed for all of September 2017. The location is particularly good in the high summer months, being pleasantly cooler than the coast. From the end of September until May, there's a chance it will be in cloud, (it's over 1500ft above sea level) and it can also...

Management response:

We regret that our villa didn't quite meet your specific needs. We try our very best which is attested to by almost 100 consistent 5 star reviews across 10 independent review sites. This doesn't mean we are complacent, far from it, and is the reason for our continuing success. We take on board all suggestions and criticism and implement necessary...

About the neighbourhood
The Picturesque Town of Monchique

The delightful town of Monchique, which is only 2 minutes drive from the villa, has a pretty central square with street cafes in which to while away the time and people watch. There are beautiful gardens to admire and narrow historic streets to explore. By the way, parking is free everywhere in Monchique including the underground car park! There are several supermarkets for you to stock up on supplies, 3 butchers, numerous cafés and a tea room serving delicious home made food, two banks with cash points, two petrol stations, 2 chemists, wine shop, gift shops and newsagents selling foreign papers. Recently opened is the new Intermarche supermarket mall, with a selection of shops, plenty of parking and ideal to stock up your holiday provisions.

Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Faro: 80.0 km
Railway: Portimao: 25.0 km
From Faro Airport one can take a shuttle to the villa, however we do recommend renting a car as there is so much to see and do in the area. It is a simple drive from the airport, following signs to Portimao, first on the EN125 and then on the A22 taking the off ramp at the well marked signpost to Monchique. You are now on the EN266 all the way to the town of Monchique and Villa Vida Nova is just 2 minutes out of the town.

We provide comprehensive driving directions from either Faro or Lisbon when a reservation is made.
