Natural park Monchique
Natural park Monchique is situated in the hinterland of the Algarve, on the far southeast side of Portugal. The green volcanic mountains are hilly, fertile and overgrown and contrast sharply with the rather busy Algarve.
Two holiday villas Algarve Portugal are situated in the foothills of the Monchique Mountains, near Caldas de Monchique. Natural park Monchique will offer you peace and nature. In a green oasis full of Mediterranean plants and flowers you will imagine yourself being miles away from anywhere. The villas, however, are situated within walking distance of a village, within a 20 minute drive of the coast.
