Monchique Resort & Spa
The Monchique Resort & Spa is a luxury bike hotel in Portugal, located in the Algarve hills and away from the crowds. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and it’s an ideal place to combine luxury and active holidays. After a day out exploring the Algarve’s cycling routes or hiking trails, you can enjoy your recovery in style and complement other aspects of active holidays and improve your body and mind.
The resort offers all kinds of activities related to sports, wellness, nature, sustainability, healthy eating, families and featured workshops.
Bike hotel Monchique Resort & Spa
It’s located in the Serra de Monchique, a privileged location with its own micro-climate ideal for outdoor activities. If you like climbing, then this is probably one of the best-located Algarve cycling hotels. There are two main climbs are either to Picota (Alferce) at 773 metres or Fóia at just over 900 metres. But there are so many other cycling routes to choose from, either around the mountain range or down towards the south and west coasts.
Although the hotel doesn’t have an on-site cycling centre, it is a certified cycling hotel. There are numerous quick bike parking stations around the hotel and there is secure bike storage with surveillance. If you need some quick repairs done to your bike then rest assured there is also a little workshop available.
The hotel works with local premium bike rentals suppliers. They can arrange bike hire (of all types) including premium racing bikes. These can be delivered straight to the hotel and will be ready for you before you arrive. Bringing your own bike is also not a problem.
The hotel reception has some recommended Algarve cycling routes for riders of all levels, which you can access via QR codes.
I highly recommend this place for your cycling holidays in Portugal.
Active holidays in Portugal
The hotel is located right on the famous Via Algarviana route. This is a long-distance route running from East to West of the whole Algarve, crossing mainly rural areas, ideal for hiking and mountain biking.
So the choice is yours! You can choose from road cycling, mountain biking, hiking and enjoy the amazing outdoor surroundings this area offers you. Or you can always just stay in one day and enjoy the hotel gym and the Spa, where they also have treatments for cyclists and athletes.
