Description from owner


Villa Vida Nova Monchique Algarve Portugal

Awesome views from this superb Villa. Ideal location for exploring the Algarve and southern Iberia. Close to town and restaurants yet very private.

A short leafy lane leads to the Villa Vida Nova which is nestled at the end of a quiet and private cul-de-sac. The Villa has impressive entrance gates and huge granite walls affording privacy and giving way to exclusive secure parking for 7 cars. There is a separate entrance and parking for the staff who maintain the villa.

The beautifully designed property is set within its own grounds which are terraced with an abundance of flowers and fruit trees and a Cork Oak forest in which to enjoy the abundant bird life.

The Villa is air conditioned throughout, has a double entrance door leading into a generously proportioned hall with an impressive suspended staircase leading to the upper floor. On the ground floor there is a bedroom with twin beds, en-suite shower room, French windows and Juliet balcony.

The bright open plan layout features an elegant dining room with seating for 8, recliner and flat screen TV and Music center. Separated by a granite breakfast bar there is a fully equipped kitchen and utility room.

The spacious lounge has comfortable seating to relax with large flat screen TV, DVD player and English channels via Freesat and Free Broadband Wifi. The lounge and Dining room both have Juliet balconies to take in the magnificent views.

Upstairs there are two Master Suites one with a Super King and the other with a King bed. Both have large bathrooms with oversize shower and separate bath. Each has TV, Juliet balcony and a separate and private sun terrace to enjoy those fabulous views of mountains and coast.

The garden and pool area enjoys a large covered BBQ terrace furnished with sofa, a wonderful place to relax with a book, watch the local bird life or watch the cruise ships come into Portimao. Dining for 8 and a built-in BBQ and fridge, perfect for eating out on those wonderful balmy Algarvian evenings. A feature of the Villa is the infinity pool from which to enjoy more views which is lit at night to enjoy swimming on those warm Algarvian nights.

Response from the owner Thank you Roger for your very kind review. It means much to us knowing that we are on the right track. Good to see you enjoyed the BBQ, I have just installed a new Stainless Steel insert with and extra rack, oh and a new LED floodlight which makes it easier after dark. We agree that the west coast beaches are spectacular and they will remain that way because they are all part of the national park. Again many thanks for your review.

Response from the owner Thank you Maria for your comment about the unkind review. We are still surprised by it. I have also received several emails from clients with suggestions as to why that particular client scraped the barrel to find fault, with the wording, photographs, cycling, very odd indeed, but there you go. We would love to have you back this year again, please get in touch when you are ready.

Response from the owner Thank you for your encouragement, this means so much to us, and thank you also for your candid comments about the previous review. We put our heart and soul into providing a first class villa rental, hence 99% of our reviews across 10 independent sites give us a 5 star rating. We continually update the villa and strive to maintain our standards to reflect this. Thank you again, we hope to see you and your friends visit us again in the not too distant future.

“A Nice Villa but nothing exceptional”

Villa Vida Nova is a very nice house; we booked in 2016, and stayed for all of September 2017. The location is particularly good in the high summer months, being pleasantly cooler than the coast. From… More

Response from the owner We regret that our villa didn't quite meet your specific needs. We try our very best which is attested to by almost 100 consistent 5 star reviews across 10 independent review sites. This doesn't mean we are complacent, far from it, and is the reason for our continuing success. We take on board all suggestions and criticism and implement necessary changes swiftly and efficiently. Thank you for your suggestions about shopping. We welcome advice but your unique criticisms, even though you admit are subjective, may mislead the reader. To this end, and so that the reader is not misinformed I will clarify a few things: As you are aware there are actually two TV Satellite systems, (not one), and not dated, one is less than a year old. There are over 100 TV channels, 70 in English, catering for guests from Europe, Canada and USA, not just UK. It would be impractical to try to provide bespoke channels for every nationality. As I explained to you by email our neighbours tried using IPTV which was unsuccessful because the bandwidth is marginal in our area for that particular system, this was confirmed by the internet provider. Notwithstanding this IPTV infringes both copyright in the UK and broadcasting law in Portugal. IPTV is a grey area even for private users. There are many free video sites but I suggested Filmon because it gives the most comprehensive choice for less than €10 per month. The stairs from the garage are 1.9 meters wide consisting of two separate spans of 7 shallow and broad steps. It has a landing in the middle which is 1.9 meters wide and 3.5 meters long. It has a metal railing and handrail for its entire length. The stair is built to code and cannot be regarded as a challenge, see photos. The garage has never been advertised for guest use, your implication is misleading. We advertise "secure parking for 7 cars" which is behind granite walls and steel gates, not a garage. Staff parking and staff entrance are separate. The lane to the villa is about 300 meters long and is a cul de sac with no through traffic. It is a well maintained single track tarred road with several passing places and a turning circle at the end. It has two bends in it neither which are hairpin. It is not difficult to navigate and is wide enough for large trucks including the propane gas truck that delivers to our property, see photos. September is the least prettiest month for the garden made worse this year because we have just had one of the hottest and driest summers on record. We respected your request to have staff visits limited to when you were out and apologize for the one occasion that she had to vary the "advertised midweek day" from Tuesday to Wednesday. Our staff have other villas to attend to so some flexibility is required in order to be considerate to other villa owners. We also accommodated your request to reschedule her hours on the day you went to the airport to collect friends. The cleaner uses the laundry room in the basement which is separate from the guest area and has its own staff parking and entrance. She uses this room to wash, tumble dry and iron linen and towels for your use. We are very fortunate that we have an independent basement laundry as many rental villas have only the guest area to perform this task. You state, "As other reviewers have mentioned, the house is not entirely private". There are absolutely no other reviews that state this, this is untrue and misleading. The villa is very private. The house to the east is occupied by a single man in his eighties, has no windows and is on the back staff entrance side of the villa and partially hidden behind trees. He is a gentleman who tends his peach and olive trees and often leaves a tray of peaches at the front door for our guests. To the north west there is cream coloured private villa, see photos, which is occupied intermittently. It is over 100 meters away and only someone standing on their upstairs bedroom balcony can see the very far edge of our infinity pool. We used a professional photographer who used a variety of lenses, this is normal and acceptable in the hospitality and real estate industry. The exterior photographs of the pool are not distorted to make the pool look "enormous" nor does our description portray this notion either. The "superlatives" that you call "hype" only repeat what reviewers say about the villa. I stand by my descriptions. The most recent TripAdvisor review headings: "Wonderful villa in stunning location", "Superb villa with breathtaking pool and views", "Beautiful house and pool, perfectly maintained, in a private setting with stunning views", "Genuine 5 star villa in beautiful setting". "Coastal views" are simply that, nothing else is implied, the location maps show where we are and distance from the coast. The descriptions concur and photographs attest to this. Extracts from recent Tripadvisor reviews: "amazing views of the surrounding valley and down to the coast", "The infinity pool is great and the views down to the Algarve coast are tremendous", "The views from the villa were amazing, looking out over the valley below & the coast line". Bicycles are listed along with other activities available and our advertising states that they are "available for hire". Monchique is a popular venue for mountain biking and famous for cycle road races. We have guests who bring their own or rent from companies who deliver all types of cycles to the door. There are companies that deliver bikes to Monchique, to allow people a relaxing down hill cycle all the way to the coast and then are ferried back to Monchique.
