Monte da Bravura Apartment

On top of a hill in the green hinterlands of the town of Lagos, you'll find the Monte Da Bravura Guest Houses. Far away from the hustle and bustle, I was able to unwind like never before. It was a sultry evening and I was relishing what had been a wonderful day, with a glass of red port and the owner, Fernando Madeira. Fernando told me about his childhood dream of building a place just like this. Inspired by his namesake, the famous Portuguese poet Fernando Pessao, who once said: "God creates, man dreams, dreams come true." He built his hotel with full commitment to ecology.

With a dreamy look in his eyes, he gazed at what he had built with his own hands and proudly smiled when he looked up. A rural landscape, a romantic porch and a magnificent pool; perfect ingredients for an amazing time. The view, the sunset, the moon with its stars; unforgettable moments! For some people, dreams come true. Fernando is one of them. And me? I will make my own dreams come true!
