An oasis of peace and calm, beautiful setting in the hills near Monchique. Manuella and Theo are welcoming, lovely people, speak excellent English, we had lots of interesting conversations together. The breakfasts are delicious, beautifully presented good quality food. Loved the toasted granola made by Theo [with coconuts and honey] yoghurt, marmalade made by Manuella, warmed bread, perfect eggs! Their pet dogs and cats are charming, you will be bowled over by the gardens so pretty. Our room door opened onto the garden with flowering trees and lemon bushes, we were greeted be the birds each morning. As it was cold, Theo lit the wood burner each day in the communal lounge which had hot drink facilities, sofas, TV, and a lovely big dining table. It was for our use throughout the day until around 11pm if we wanted. Everything was lovely in Spa D'Alma, great value. We didn't use the hot tub which is kept hot all the time even though its outside. Big thanks to you both, and little Mona the young cat.
