A colourful hilltop coastal farmhouse, in Costa Vicentina National Park and surrounded on all sides by beautiful rolling hills, with awesome views of the ocean and just minutes away from the sensational beaches of the wild west coast.

Two of the best surfing beaches are in the immediate vicinity, and we can organise surf lessons for all ages (from 10 upwards) and levels of ability.

For years, Henrique Balsemão travelled the world as a producer of his own TV show. However, the more he travelled, the more he was certain that the most beautiful region that he had ever seen, and the place where he wanted to live, was the southwest coast of Portugal, where he spent some of the best times in his life, surfing. Now we can all share his dream at Monte Velho!
