Hike, sunbathe and dip in the infinity pool. You’re well and truly on holiday here in the heart of the Algarve.

The name ‘Pirilampo’ Portuguese for ‘firefly’ was well-chosen. The lights of Lagos and Portimao in the distance twinkle in the night sky. If you’re looking for a slice of peace in this stunning nature reserve of the Algarve - you’ve hit the right spot. Spend your day working off all those pastéis de nata by hiking the winding paths of the Via Algarviana.

For your well-earned beach day(s) you don’t have far to go, it’s just a 30-minute drive to the golden sands, ice creams and scent of suncream. You’ve got plenty of choice in surf and sailing schools along the coast or hire a pirate to take you to the sea caves. Once you’re ready to flop there’s little more to do than kick back on your outdoor terrace with a cold beer and a feeling of self-congratulation. You deserve it after the day you’ve had!

  • Imagine spending your vacation in the Algarve, in a peaceful area the middle of nature with high-end comfort. This is possible at Pirilampo, in a breathtaking natural reserve in the hills of Monchique.
  • Pirilampo, especially suited to hikers and nature lovers and also for those of you who appreciate winding down in ultimate peace and quiet. Pirilampo is not far from the spectacular beaches of the mondaine south coast or the unspoiled beaches of the west.
  • Pirilampo lies on the famous 225 kilometer long hiking trail ‘Via Algarviana’ , traversing the Algarve from east to west just north of the south coast, through natural reserves and small villages.
  • Back at Pirilampo, there is ample room for you to create your own place in the sun or shade, by the salt-water Infinity swimming pool, on your own private terrace or in our woods, all of which look out onto the hills and valley out to the sea.
  • The village (5 minute drive) has nice terraces, pictoresque streets, churches and all the facilities you need such as supermarket, postoffice and banks.
  • Monchique, with its spectacular views of the Algarve, is an oasis of green and tranquility.
