If you are looking for the perfect spot to spend your holiday in the Algarve, look no further than the Solmonte Hotel.

Situated in Praia da Rocha, near the popular resort of Portimao, it is the perfect retreat for a relaxing holiday based in a luxurious setting in the Algarve. The hotel is ideally located just minutes away from a fabulous beach and within walking distances to the local amenities in the local town centre.

The Hotel is located on the southern coast of the Portuguese Algarve, an area of magnificent scenery – steeped with medieval history and beauty. Due to its coastal location, a sea breeze modifies the temperatures during the summer, so that the summer weather experienced in Praia da Rocha is (on the whole) considerably more pleasant than the stifling heat to be found in the inland areas of the Algarve. If you are up to any lengthy travelling during your stay at Solmonte you will find it is possible to take day trips or nightly stopovers to the capital city of Lisbon, or maybe even across the Spanish border to the city of Seville. These two world-class cities offer an abundance of Iberian charm and culture.

There are plenty of stunning beaches all along the Algarve coastline with crystal clear waters and picturesque resorts, making the Algarve a true paradise for holidaymakers from all over the world. To the north lies the mountains of southern Portugal that contain small picturesque villages that have been virtually untouched by modern humanity: when you visit them you are instantly plunged back into the medieval times.
