The Organic farm

On 32 acres of land, Monte Serra offers 4 self-catering accommodations:
1. CASARÃO, restored to its 19th century Moorish flavoured manor-like glory, adorned with period furniture and antique polychrome azulejos;
2. CASA do PÁTIO graced with tile panels, a bougainvillea canopy and lovely palm trees silhouetted against the sea;
3. the WHITE STABLES.. a terrace for an 'al fresco' lunch in the shade of vines and kiwi, for children a secret den, for their parents a mezzanine enlivened by coloured glass;
4. a CASINHA, a snug Cottage for 2.
Monte Serra is at its best when welcoming a large gathering of family and friends, keen to share pleasure and joy; yet it will also charm a couple looking for a quiet refuge to be away and happy

Holiday destination Eastern Algarve

Straddling a ridge overlooking beaches basking in the sun, tucked away in a nook of unspoiled country side, the estate offers a perfect get-away: 30 acres of centuries old trees, scenic views, orchards, gardens for a quiet chat, at night the fragrance of “dama da noite” the flower that awakens when the sun has set, and in wintertime, oranges and grapefruit galore. Pick some for breakfast!
You are 7km north of Fuzeta. From this fishermen village take a launch to lovely Armona Island across the lagoon for a swim or a stroll on an endless beach.
At 2 km, Angela's small yet well stocked mini-market has fresh bread at 9am and most of the daily necessities. Ask her for a free range cockerel or home made cake for a birthday party
