I expect you’ve noticed the flood of Portuguese content splashing through all my channels. I promise this will be my last dose of it but, I can promise I’m finishing on the ultimate high with Vila Monte Farmhouse.
As I mentioned in my last post, we split our Portuguese Babymoon adventure down the middle. Christian chose the exquisite Sublime Comporta (read my previous post here). However, next up was my choice and my selection was the absolutely dream Vila Monte Farm House. Two extremely different resorts and each with their own sculpted charms.
Vila Monte stole my attention with a much more real and authentic luxurious Portuguese experience. Most of what you find on your food plate will have been grown in their gardens. Their onsite restaurant ‘A Terra‘ was like nowhere I have eaten before and I would genuinely find myself excited for dinner at around 3pm every day. After dinner every night we would sit outside by trees lit by fairy lights and enjoy coffee (decaf, of course) with little home baked biscuits before surrendering to bed.
Vila Monte consists of a variety of rooms and suites and we were lucky enough to be in the ‘Secret Garden Suite’. There’s nothing quite like the luxury of having your own pool and your own hammock overlooking nothing but green. Even if it is just to give yourself a little privacy as you fall out your hammock each time you try to climb in.
I’ll take you now to the land of orange trees, hammocks and the ultimate Portuguese cuisine…

Amazing for lunch but, even better for dinner so come and stroll with us into our favourite evening

Thank you Vila Monte for a truly divine stay! It was pure bliss.
The end of our trip drew to a close and the day we left, we had just enough time for a short excursion. Here I’ll just finish up here with a few snapshots of our afternoon around Faro.

I’ll be signing off from our Portuguese baby moon now and as we return to the British Isles, Autumn will be ready for us.
