Bonsai and Orchid Exhibit at Monte Santo


While there is a common association between the Japanese culture and Bonsais, the Chinese were in fact the first to cultivate these small shrubs in ceramic vases. Archaeologists have found remains that indicate the existence of gardening tools and potted plants from as far back as 200 D.C..

The hobby of caring for Bonsais has grown exponentially in recent years, especially in Europe, currently these small shrubs can be found throughout the world. The interest in Bonsais has accompanied the general public´s growing curiosity for the martial arts and Asian culture. This hobby requires patience along with some artistic ability and is ideal for individuals who wish to relax and escape from their everyday stress.

On the 7th and 8th of December at 3:00 p.m. Monte Santo will host a bonsai workshop in collaboration with the Win Garden & Home. This workshop will teach participants the basic steps of caring for such sensitive trees. Each session has a length of 1 hour and 30 minutes, a minimum participation of 10 people and is free of charge. Feel free to bring your own Bonsai or choose one made available by the Win Garden.

Halloween in Carvoeiro, Algarve


Halloween is celebrated on the 31st of October. This Celtic tradition evolved from the belief that on the eve of all saints day (the first of November) the spirits of deceased family members returned to their homes.

The Holiday was introduced to the United States of America by the early pilgrims; and is currently one of the most widely celebrated dates in the world, especially amongst Americans. Disguised in scary costumes or as their favourite character countless children go door to door repeating the famous question: Trick or Treat? neighbours then gladly offer sweets in exchange for their piece of mind. In the Algarve Halloween has come to gather quite a legion of fans, particularly amongst the younger population, the local shops and hotels, who offer special children´s programs to celebrate the holiday.

Carvoeiro receives nature exhibit, “Lynx, the struggle to exist- a story of survival or extinction”


Between the 11th and 31st of August, Monte Santo in Carvoeiro will welcome the “Lynx, the struggle to exist- a story of survival or extinction” exhibition created by SOS Lynx.

According to the non-profit association founded in 2000 for the conservation of the Iberian-Lynx, SOS Lynx, this creature is the most endangered feline species in the world. It is calculated that only 200 specimens currently live within their natural habitat. This species, that once inhabited the entire Iberian Peninsula, has come to disappear in the last decades due greatly to the loss of its natural habitat, the decrease in prey, and a high mortality attributed to car accidents, and hunting.

“We intend to take advantage of August-our busiest month of the year- to appeal to our visitors´ ecological conscience. This exhibit, composed of 8 panels, presents the Iberian lynx in a didactic yet fascinating perspective, showing us how this feline species struggles on a daily basis to survive. Receiving this exhibit within our resort is a simple contribution to a noble cause we are happy to make.” stated Marc Sontag, IMOCOM Hotels and Resorts’ Director of Residential Tourism.

Do not miss the opportunity to visit Carvoeiro and discover how you may help the Iberian Lynx- the last large feline indigenous to the Iberian Peninsula and the most endangered mammal in Europe.
