The Resort looks back on a century of history

The Resort's history
In 1979 the artist Adolfo bought the 87.000 m2 quinta in Monte dos Caliços near Moncarapacho. Carefully preserving the traditional architecture, the Quinta was transformed into a manor house, as home and studio to the artist.

In 1985 the Quinta was transformed into a guesthouse, laying down the foundations for the present hotel and resort. In 1993 the guest houses Riad and Vila Índigo were added as well as the Patinho, which presently houses the bar, reception and lounge.

With the inauguration of the Orangerie in 1999 the resort reached its present size. The well preserved park with its spectacular ancient trees give the resort a unique atmosphere.

Since the beginning, art and culture have been an integral part of Vilamonte Resort Relais & Chateaux. The foundation of the Resort Gallery was another step in preserving the heritage of the deceased westfalian artist, Adolfo. Nowadays, the gallery organises exhibitions of local artists
