Villa with pool and a view
Beautiful location, just outside Tavira. We knew that we would need a car, so that was fine. Plenty of parking space. Views were spectacular, 360 degrees all round! Bedrooms clean and spacious. This property was arranged cleverly to accommodate a family with children, or 5 grown up couples, (although 2 rooms had twin beds). Decent bbq area. Shaded patio area in front of bbq and table, but sunny area too for the sun-worshippers of this world. Great cooking facilities both inside and out.
My only criticism would be that you can only get wi-fi upstairs, unless you take the dongle downstairs and plugged it in. (But of course, then you wouldn’t get it upstairs!....if you know what I mean!?)😉😁
Would thoroughly recommend the villa, and thank you Angie for meeting us with the key and familiarising us with all the gadgets and fittings etc.
Thanks so much for your lovely feedback.
Welcome back anytime!
Very well equipped,spacious villa with everything you could want for a home from home holiday.
Everything was very clean and well prepared for our arrival,which included a welcome hamper.
The outside areas were amazing with a good sized salt water pool and bar-b-q eating area. We took full advantage of this. It was so peaceful and relaxing as the property is surrounded by fruit farms and olive groves.
Each bedroom had its own ensuite which js a must when there is a large party. Excellent showers and there was always hot water.
The kitchen had every utensil and appliance you could want. We did a lot of cooking in the villa and it was just like being at home! There was ample cutlery and crockery. The coffee pod machine was fab and there was also a filter coffee machine. The water filter tap was a surprise and we didn't have to buy any bottled water, brilliant!
The outside terrace was perfect for eating alfresco or sitting and watching the amazing stars. There were so many different outside areas to choose from, meaning our large party could all enjoy their own space but we could still all fit comfortably together when we wanted to.
The children had plenty of DVDs to choose from, board games and different toys and books, amazing! There were plenty for the adults to choose from too.
The villa suited our needs because we wanted to be out of town in a peaceful location. Your own transport is essential as you can't walk into town easily. This wasn't a problem for us as we had our own cars.
We would definitely recommend this villa and loved every minute of our holiday.

Tavira, referred to in guide books as the ‘Venice of the Algarve’ is one of the most authentic towns in the Algarve and definitely worth visiting.
Historically, Tavira was an important harbour town and there are still remnants from Moorish, Phoenician and Roman occupations. There is a lively fishing trade along the river front, though far less than when Tavira was known for its huge tuna fishing fleets, the anchors of which can all be seen lodged in the sand at Barril beach.
The beautiful centre of Tavira is situated on the banks of the river Gilão. The town has a seven arched Roman bridge that spans the river and is the focal point of the town. Tavira was virtually rebuilt in the eighteenth century after the famous earthquake of 1755 destroyed most of the buildings. The impressive church of Sta. Maria do Castelo has a gothic portal and stands on the site of the former 13th century mosque and most of the 37 churches have beautiful tile work within. There are many examples of Renaissance and Manueline architecture including the arched doorway of the Misericordia church. The 13th century castle walls border the medieval centre of town, encompassing tranquil gardens and a Camera Obscura. From there your eyes can scan over the rich tapestry of peaked rooftops to the estuary leading through the mosaic of salt pans and far out into the Atlantic.
There are many highly recommended fish restaurants, which serve locally caught shellfish and fresh fish dishes, enjoyed with a glass of ‘vinho verde’, the ´green` sparkling wine which is typically Portuguese. Numerous cafes and restaurants line the river, public gardens and quiet squares, offering an array of traditional patisserie and fresh fish dishes.
Tavira beaches make up part of the Nature Reserve of the Ria Formosa, which comprise six unique barrier islands protecting a system of salt marshes and tidal mudflats, each fronted by white sand beaches that spread as far as the eye can see. An unspoilt haven for nature lovers, walkers and bird watchers.
Few places in Europe have so many Blue Flag beaches in such a concentrated area, you can enjoy the boat and miniature train river crossings, many of which are operational throughout the year.
Inland and set in rural countryside 7 km north of Tavira is the waterfall of ‘Moinhos da Rocha’. A series of wooden decks and bridges skirt a leafy ravine sheltering the crystal clear waters of a small stream. This culminates in a low but impressive waterfall that empties into a small lake. Further up stream are the other beautiful cascading waterfalls of ‘Pego do Inferno’, both pretty places for picnics and having a dip!
There are seasonal festivals of live music, street theatre and open air cinema interspersed with various fairs. One of the main festivals is Sâo Joâo on the 24th of June, when Tavira is decorated in paper flowers, host carnivals and processions with late night sardine- eating and street dancing!
