Having just retired, and being in the middle of buying a house, myself and my partner were looking for a relaxing, away from it all holiday. Boy, did this place fit the bill. Set right up in the hills, about 5 miles from the western Algarve resort of Lagos, this is a little gem. The apartments are bed and breakfast...

After a very enjoyable stay our leaving was a disaster.We had to leave early for Faro and were amazed that there were no lights anywhere. My brother decided to move the car to use its lights at the bottom of steps to help us. Unfortunately in the pitch black he fell into the pool banging his head. Fortunately he was...

Monte da Bravura is a gem...and we are so glad we found it! It is perfect for couples looking for rest and relaxation. The perfect views from the terrace, the lovely comfortable rooms with tasteful antique style furniture, the location...and breakfast is amazing. It will set you up for the day...and although I don't usually eat cake for breakfast I...

I was looking for a place to relax and get away from the crowds, yet enjoy comfort and nature, while not being to far away from sea, city and some good restaurants. Just to rest for a week before getting back to work. The location of MB is beautiful, on the top of the mountain. It is absolutely quiet here...

We cut our stay short in the north of Portugal in favour of a longer stay in the algarve, I contacted the hotel at short notice but he managed to find us accommodation. Although the extra nights were not spent in the apartment we booked it was located to the side of the part of the building where him and...

We stayed for a week at this beautiful family run resort. And we couldn't fault it in any way. Beautiful views, immaculately kept, tranquil, and super friendly owners eager to help and give advice. Yes there are cats, 2 to be precise, friendly but by no means a nuisance at any time. All it took was a little shoo away...

We visited Monte Da Bravura last week we found the cats a real problem hanging around the pool area and even entering into our apartment and bedroom. They roam all over the area and make a nuisance of themselves ruining our stay. We did have to leave and find other accommodation without any help from the owners

We stayed at this hotel for a week at the end of May. Set in a peaceful position in the countryside 20 minutes north of Lagos, it is a quiet and tranquil place to unwind and enjoy the surroundings. A car is obviously essential but it is only a short drive to excellent restaurants in Odiáxere and Lagos. The Barragem...

The hotel is situated about 10 minutes from the N125 and overall about 20 minutes from Lagos. It is quiet location with little else in the immediate vicinity so a car is an absolute must. A far cry from the overdeveloped areas of the East Algarve, this is a place from which to investigate the west coast and its marvellous...

In the middle of nowhere this beautiful hotel fitted our needs perfectly. Spotlessly clean with friendly staff and Fernando and Elizabeth who can't do enough for you and not forgetting the 2 cats who like to greet you each morning and when you come back from a day out. Unhurried breakfasts of home grown produce and Elizabeth's wonderful cakes and...
