In 1890 Companhia Mont’Estoril built a set of chalets that gave new charm to Monte Estoril. Vila Montrose was one of these.
Thomas Reynolds, one of the founders of the Portuguese cork industry, was its first owner, in 1891. Vila Montrose keeps within itself a time capsule of memories. In 1892 Dona Maria Pia, the Queen Mother, stayed there for her summer holidays in the newly created beach resort, receiving as dinner guests her son King Dom Carlos and his wife Queen Dona Amélia.
In 1900 Vila Montrose was bought by Eduard John, a banker, who also purchased some adjoining plots to build a lush romantic garden. In 1916 the chalet was sold to George Demoustier, Belgium's vice-consul, and remained in the possession of his family until the beginning of the 21st century.
More than a century later, the chalet that hosted royalty and renowned entrepreneurs, bankers and diplomats, is reborn with the same style and elegance as a unique residential condominium. With its aura of a bygone era, the new condominium honours and preserves the luxurious chalet and its lavish gardens, instilling it with a renewed life so that new families may continue to enjoy its more than 125 years of history.
A few steps away from Avenida Sabóia, in the centre of Monte Estoril, the new Vila Montrose takes full advantage of the property's more than 5 thousand sq metres to offer 24 exclusive residences integrated within a spectacular romantic garden with swimming pools and a sweeping view of the ocean.
