“Thank you for such a lovely peaceful stay in a comfortable and relaxing home. We have so enjoyed the peace, sunshine and smells of the wild flowers and the eucalyptus. You have been brilliant and helpful hosts, with extra touches. we really enjoyed exploring the region, especially wlking to Foia and back again, memorable beaches via a cliff walk at benagil, and a sea kayaking tour around Lagos to Ponta Piedade. Thanks for a lovely holiday and we will be recommending our stay to everyone we can.”

“Thank you so much for being such lovely hosts in this stunning house. We have loved every moment and have been wowed by the views and the sounds and touched by your warm hospitality. Thanks for all your great tips- we have eaten like kings. Our only regret is that we can’t stay longer.”

Benedita and Marc’s place is a perfect spot for a holiday in the Algarve. An excellent base to explore the surrounding areas. It’s in a lovely secluded plot in the hills of Monchique with amazing views from each guest house, the garden and pool. The accommodation is really clean, tidy and well designed. It has all amenities needed, we cooked breakfast every morning and even dinner in the evening as it was so peaceful to sit on our private terrace and enjoy the view. Both the infinity pool and garden are well designed and very well looked after. There is also an outdoor heated shower by the pool which was lovely to use after a good swim. Benedita and Marc are fantastic hosts, they make you feel very welcome and are happy to help, you also receive a great welcome pack on arrival. We would highly recommend staying here if you’re visiting the Algarve – it will definitely make your trip memorable.”

“Pirilampo is a great place to stay if you want to relax, hear nightingales, smell Eucalytpus… Very stylish appartement and very friendly and warm hospitality ”

“First of all, Benedita and Marc are fantastic hosts. They’re very responsive with attention to detail, easy going and made an effort to create a memorable experience. Even with the pictures provided, the quality of the venue exceeded our expectations. The interior design is modern and very tasteful, the apartment was freshly renovated and had a very high standard. The bed has a high quality mattress and a canopy, which we didn’t use because there were no insects in the apartment. During the whole stay (14 days) the heated pool was in excellent condition, we’ve been swimming in the morning and late in the evening (it has very beautiful light). To our surprise there were restaurants in walking distance, which didn’t look very good on the first impression but were very delicious and had very friendly staff (thanks for the recommendation, we weren’t able to find a better Piri-Piri chicken at other restaurants, so we visited A Rampa 3 times). The only downside I can think of is the missing washing machine and even this was no problem at all as there were washing machines next to the supermarket in Monchique which take 28 minutes to run (a clothes rack is provided by the hosts). We would book this venue again without a doubt.”

“This is a stunningly brilliant place. Best we have ever stayed in. Accommodation, welcome, location and facilities are all top quality and Benedita and Marc go out of their way to ensure that every need is met. Recommended without reservation. We would love to stay again if we visit that area of Portugal and will certainly recommend to our riends.”

“A beautiful place. Great lux apartment. A wonderful bed and a super shower. A great place to rest, to bike or to hike. The view during the day and in the dark is incredibly beautiful. And naturally great hosts. I left with pain in my heart.”
