Hidden Valley Nature Retreat

Monchique, Algarve

Wake up to birdsong and reconnect with nature at our Hidden Valley Nature Retreat

We are a vegan couple Sarah and Jon, and we moved from the UK to Portugal to pursue a slower-paced, more sustainable lifestyle. We found our sanctuary 10 minutes from Monchique, in the Algarve mountains. We would love to invite you to come and stay with us and experience the peacefulness yourselves.

We strive to tread more gently on the earth and work with, not against nature. We are creating a permaculture garden, not only to produce organic food for ourselves and our guests but also to create a biodiversity haven.

The Rooms and facilities

We are a small B&B that offers a personal touch and a quiet place to enjoy your vacation. We have 3 rooms but usually will only rent 2 rooms at a time for Bed and Breakfast to ensure guests have the space and tranquillity that we want to offer.

One of our rooms is a studio with a kitchenette for self catered stays and a cosy fireplace if booking during the colder months. All rooms have a private ensuite and personal entrance to the outside.

Guests can relax in the shade in our outdoor seating area with hammock and you will also have access to our outdoor kitchen which has a BBQ, pizza oven and fridge/freezer.

The Food

Breakfast is included with the room, and we also offer guests the option to book lunches and dinners. All food is vegan and we use organic fruits and vegetables from the garden when available.
We can cater to most dietary requirements such as gluten free/soy allergy etc.

The Surroundings

The Algarve is most famous for its beautiful beaches, however the beautiful green mountainous area of Monchique is completely different and perfect for those wishing to stay in a more peaceful location but still have great access to explore the rest of the Algarve.

We are in a small valley with only one neighbour and surrounded by trees (including the famous Cork Oak trees). We have many birds both resident to the area and migratory, including birds of prey (such as eagles and buzzards), woodpeckers, jays, song birds, hoopoes, owls and more. There is a river running through the valley which has frogs, terrapins, a visiting heron, kingfishers etc. We were once lucky enough to even spot an otter!
