Supported holidays

Enjoy a wonderfully relaxing holiday, with care on hand if required

Its pleasant year-round climate, beautiful coast and countryside, safe, low-cost living – not to mention its famous golf courses – makes the Algarve region a very attractive place both to visit and to retire, and Portugal topped the International Living’s Annual Global Retirement Index in 2020.  

While staying with us, our staff are always on hand to answer any questions you may have, make recommendations, and provide helpful information to ensure your holiday runs smoothly. You’ll also have access to all our on-site facilities, as well as nursing care should it be needed. We’ll even be happy to do your shopping ready for your arrival and help with trusted transport, or arrange for a hire car to be delivered to your villa.

Concerts and barbecues take place regularly throughout the summer, and a minibus takes residents and visitors to and from the nearby towns of Loule and Almancil.  

Our driver will collect you from Faro airport and you’ll enjoy a pretty 20-minute journey to the traditional village development in the tranquil hills of Gorjões. 

When you arrive at Monte da Palhagueira, you’ll find cobbled streets lined with whitewashed villas topped with traditional terracotta tiles, beautifully landscaped grounds, a wonderful swimming pool and club house, a tennis court, fabulous restaurant, ornamental lake, and the Algarve’s only Anglican church, all bounded by mellowed Portuguese stone walls. 

Care and support is on hand

A beautifully converted 19th century quinta, the nursing home in the northern corner of Monte da Palhagueira offers 24-hour care from a team of qualified care professionals and total peace of mind.

The 16 rooms over two floors each have their own individual character, and many have patios or balconies overlooking the beautiful grounds with views of the surrounding countryside, making for a wonderfully beautiful and tranquil setting.
