The Algarve with its famous pristine beaches and micro climate offers the best year round holiday opportunities for the discerning holidaymaker. Quaint fishing ports and historic cities and villages compete for the tourists attention. Secure family beaches and the west coasts wild surfing beaches offer a broad variety of scenery and seaside activities.
Over 300 sunny days every year make the Algarve, Europe's favourite holiday destination. The Serra De Monchique is the Algarve's best kept secret, founded by the Romans which provides a historic backdrop and its natural spring waters are said to rejuvenate and even lengthen our days. Talking about Romans, it was the Romans that built the stone terraces in our gardens. They were built to retain the excellent soil for growing vegetables and fruit to feed the Centurians and troops, these days the terraces are still there but it's not the Romans getting fat on all that fruit.
The Picturesque Town of Monchique The delightful town of Monchique, which is only 2 minutes drive from the villa, has a pretty central square with street cafes in which to while away the time and people watch. There are beautiful gardens to admire and narrow historic streets to explore. By the way, parking is free everywhere in Monchique including the underground car park. There are several supermarkets for you to stock up on supplies, 3 butchers, numerous cafés and a tea room serving delicious home made food, two banks with cash points, two petrol stations, 2 chemists, wine shop, gift shops and newsagents selling foreign papers. Recently opened is the new Intermarche supermarket mall, with a selection of shops, plenty of parking and ideal to stock up your holiday provisions. Superb Dining for all Tastes and Budgets There are many excellent yet inexpensive local restaurants, some of the best are within walking distance of the villa. You will be tempted by the delicious regional fare, chicken piri-piri, black Iberian pork, wild boar with plums and lamb casserole.

For two years, 2020 and 2021, we allowed cancellations and postponements at a considerable financial loss to us. We only managed 22% occupancy instead of the usual 95 % and we kept all our staff employed on normal hours to ease the burden on them. Unfortunately this is no longer sustainable. Because of the problems caused by Covid-19 there are now a plethora of travel interruption insurance policies that have been made available to the public, we strongly recommend that you subscribe to one for the entire duration of your vacation.

The Government may introduce a "tourist tax" for all visitors who stay in either location similar to what exists in Lisbon and Porto. It is is not finalized yet but may come into effect in the near future. The proposal at present is Euro 1.50 per adult per night payable for the first 7 nights. More about this when it is legislated.
At Villa Vida Nova Algarve there is a twin bed suite on the ground floor for those who cannot manage too many stairs and similarly at Villa Vida Nova Silver Coast there is a king suite on the ground floor.
There are stairs from the car parking area to the Villa Vida Nova Algarve, these are wide, gradual with a landing and have hand rail. Everything else is on the level save for the two upstairs master bedrooms.
All properties are in semi-rural areas where there are, forests and small farms so do expect to hear farm noises from time to time, chickens, guinea fowl, owls, dogs, tractors, chain saws, strimmers, etc. Once or twice a month for just a minute or so and depending on the direction of the wind you may hear muffled bangs from a distant stone quarry.
Our manager, cleaners, pool cleaners and gardeners will attend to the properties from time to time, they will keep out of your way as much as possible. Exterior work is weather dependant so times may vary. The cleaner may need to use the washing machine on her visits.
Some electronics, decor items and particularly sunbeds, seat covers and parasols may differ slightly from the photographs on our websites as we need to replace them from time to time due to wear and tear and as we make general improvements.
Tip: Ensure that your car rental company will provide a transponder for the toll roads, this will enable tolls to be paid automatically for the duration of your vacation. Without a transponder payment is difficult and payment cannot be made for the return trip to the airport.
It is important to distribute these terms and conditions to all members of your party staying at the properties.
