Rural style and sophistication at a sleek spa resort in the Algarve, with a spa voucher, a half-bottle of authentic Port and welcome treats

The recently opened Macdonald Monchique Resort & Spa offers a tranquil haven of rest and relaxation set amidst the scenic Portugal countryside. Set in a rural location, prepare to unwind at this chic retreat and take in idyllic views over the area from more places than one - not least, the fantastic outdoor swimming pool and surrounding gardens.

When you're not taking in the surrounding countryside, while away a morning in the sleek spa, where extensive facilities will keep you occupied for hours. Enjoy a light lunch of sharing dishes in A Petiscaria or sumptuous Italian flavours in Pizzaria da Serra, before hitting a nearby golf course for a leisurely round. Pre-dinner cocktails are an obvious introduction to evenings here, best followed by dinner with a generous side of mountain views at Mon-Chic restaurant.
