Monte da Palhagueira Celebrates 25th Anniversary in 2017

May 2017

Monte da Palhagueira is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, having been the very first retirement village to open in the Algarve. The village is part of the family owned Amesbury Abbey Group, which operates a further three villages in Wiltshire and Hampshire in England.

Monte da Palhagueira provides the very best in nursing, residential and convalescence care, delivered by a highly experienced team of British nurses. The 20 bedroomed care home is designed over two floors and benefits from lift access to the galleried first floor, with its feature skylight providing a light and airy ambience. Each of the 20 rooms has its own individual character and many have patios or balconies from which residents can enjoy the village gardens and the delightful views over the surrounding countryside.


Facilities also include a resident’s dining room, a physiotherapy unit, a hairdressing service and a secluded swimming pool with ample seating and viewing areas. The Nursing Home is open to both residents and non-residents of Monte da Palhagueira Village and also offers respite and day care services, with prices from €1,105 to €1,365 + IVA per week, subject to care needs assessment.


The village also offers an excellent range of amenities, including the Anglican Church of St. Luke, the award winning Le Marquis restaurant, swimming pools and an ornamental lake, all set within delightful, traditional village surroundings. In addition, a wide range of independent living property options are available exclusively for the over 55s, including 33 town houses, villas and apartments all set within 22 acres of manicured grounds and gardens.


You can arrange a viewing or a care needs assessment at the nursing home by simply calling Debbie Roberts on +351 289 990900, or e-mailing and we are always happy to provide village property tours.
