Went to Christmas at Vilamonte for a serene retreat and the stay exceeded my every (high) expectation.The team are incredibly personable and they went out of their way to ensure i was comfortable throughout my stay. Accommodation was beautiful, surroundings amazing, lots of space to just linger about aimlessly (my goal). Hotel has daily activities and movie nights which added a perfect touch to your stay. The fire place in the lobby was an amazing focal point to chill out and also meet other guests. The restaurant looked amazing and served amazing food! Got to go on a trip to the local market with the Chef which great fun. A wonderful gem of a hotel! I would go back in a heart beat.

Just back from a 4 night stay at the gorgeous Vila Monte Farm house. It's so accessible from London as there are so many flight to Faro and the hotel is a short drive from the airport. The hotel is set in an orange grove and has beautifully kept grounds.The room we stayed in was in a charming courtyard of orange trees with distant views of the sea and the hills. The hotel has a stunning modern interior and the main guest reception room is breathtaking ( though clearly difficult to heat in winter ! ) . The huge swimming pool was too cold to swim in and it would be wonderful if it was heated ! The staff were incredibly helpful and attentive and made this feel like a home from home. We can't wait to return.

loved every minute of it, beautiful place, lovely attention to detail, all made extra special by the genuine kindness of the staff, would highly recommend for a treat! we were there in winter so didn't go in the pool, but gardens were stunning, and free experience trip to the local olive press was great

A really unique place with a young funky vibe . Arrive at a quiet located hotel within huge garden grounds . Open fire place at the reception ,meet and great with helpful friendly staff and GM. We loved it here from the first moment ,relaxed atmosphere within Beauty and professionalism . We will be back . Obrigado for making our stay memorable

I went to spent the night with my husband and we fell in love by this hotel. All the rooms are Provence decorated and you have the feeling that you are not in a hotel. We are a vegan couple and we had a warm welcome with strawberries, a bottle of nice olive oil, vegan yogurt for breakfast and at dinner the chef was very flexible on making vegan versions of the plates. Everything was delicious and staff was lovely. We have a suggestion though, it was winter time and there was not a sauna or even a hot ofurô or jacuzzi and we think this would go perfectly with the place since the pool was freezing.

I usually don't write reviews, but in this case I have to make an exception. My first words go directly to the team: what an hospitality mindset!! A trully 5 stars experience!! We stayed in a suite and it was spacious, comfortable and very well eqquiped with everything we needed. The wifi worked properly during all our stay. The dinner at À Terra restaurant was very good. Very tasty and authentic food. The josper oven is always a must! Breakfast is very complete. The property itself is very nice and it makes want to relax and walk on the property. We strongly recommend this hotel.

Vila Monte is a really special place and I feel so lucky we got the opportunity to stay there! As a couple with a baby we really want somewhere that is easy for us to stay, but at the same time love staying in individual and unique places just as we did in our pre-baby days having never been a fan of big resorts. We booked our trip very last minute and were fortunate as it was low season to get a fantastic deal. I was nervous that in low season that the hotel would have no atmosphere but it definitely wasn’t the case. We were blessed with beautiful sunshine while there and the grounds are just amazing to stroll around (we barely left the complex!) the staff are just incredible, couldn’t do enough to make sure we were comfortable and were so accommodating for our baby also (Raquel we will take you up on your babysitting offer next time!) the drinks and tapas on the Friday eve was a lovely touch (I want that fireplace in my house!) and overall we just loved the hotel and would love to come back again if we can afford to! Oh and the food - just divine! Thankyou so much to everyone at Vila Monte for making our stay so relaxing and enjoyable, it was a really special experience!

We arrived when it was dark. There was an open fire in the lobby, friendly smiles from people standing inside. A warm welcome that set off a magical stay. Our room was pretty, and quite big (wifi connection brilliant). There was a pond off to one side with friendly turtles swimming around - along with the fish and frogs. Breakfast is generous, with a view across the countryside to the sea. Restaurants are fun with good food. This really is a wonderful hotel.

We had an incredible time at the Vila Monte. We came to celebrate a wedding and had an amazing stay. The staff here works so hard and delivered top-notch service each day the make our stay so enjoyable. Raquel and Andre were incredible! The hotel grounds are beautiful with breathtaking views at every turn. There are so many places to lounge by one of the 2 pools, grab a drink on the grounds and enjoy a stroll through the garden. We enjoyed the activities provided by the hotel as well, going on a tour of the market in Olhao with the hotel chef and enjoyed a bike ride into Moncarapacho. The rooms are large, very comfortable and have outdoor space to relax as well. A Terra restaurant is very good. I loved the onion soup and local salad! The menu features daily specials and they are very accommodating to make you something that's not on the menu as well.

Travel by car from lison to this little gem. Easy to find and beautiful surroundings. The room (junior suite) was fabulous, spacious and the terrace was perfect. Some nice little touches. The staff were very helful and friendly. We had a car so we could go out and about, so given its semi rural location not sure what you do if you didnt have a car. The resaurant was good, a little bit pricey compared to what you can get outside the hotel. The pools were nice, a bit chilly and the grounds immaculate. They have an outdoor cinema which was cool and have free cookies available all day (best cookies ever) and then free tea/cake at 5. Which was a nice touch. However, water in your room you had to pay for which was a bit odd. We had a very relaxing time here and would probably stay again. Do venture out to tue local towns nearby.
