To stay as a guest at Monte West Coast, on the border between the Alentejo and Algarve provinces, is to return to nature, albeit with all the comforts required in the 21st Century.

We are embraced by the natural and unblemished landscape surrounding this vast property, which already includes 10 houses in its portfolio and which cannot fail to delight guests who spend time here. A few more houses are scheduled to be added to this project developed by Catarina Östholm Pinho and Ricardo Pinho and which has become a growing passion for this couple. Whenever possible, if time permits, they also like to spend time here in the company of their four children.

With the help of the architect Pedro Oliveira (PLCO Arquitectos) they have succeeded in breathing new life into the ruins that were to be found on this farming estate, respecting their original structures but adding comfort and well-being.
