Overview

About the property

4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, sleeps 8

Casa Pinheiro is a private family villa set in a peaceful, unspoilt region of the Algarve. It lies at the heart of the beautiful Ria Formosa wetlands nature reserve and is rich in bird and other wildlife. We have 5 acres of land running down to a tidal lagoon where local fishermen harvest shellfish etc. and moor their colourful boats. On the other side of the lagoon is a five mile long sandy Atlantic beach.

There are plenty of excellent inexpensive Portuguese restaurants in the area.

Casa Pinheiro is perfect for people who enjoy peace, beautiful natural surroundings and sunshine.

This is a wonderfully unspoilt area of the Portuguese Algarve, and we like to welcome discerning guests who love the peace and beauty that it offers. In 2004 we built Casa Pinheiro in a superb front line position at the water's edge in a nature reserve known as the Ria Formosa, 5 miles to the west of Tavira in a peaceful undeveloped part of the Algarve.

Casa Pinheiro is set in 5 acres of its own land running down to a tidal lagoon with the beach and the sea on the other side.

In front of the villa our land runs down to a tidal sea lagoon where local fishermen harvest shellfish etc. and moor their colourful boats. On the other side of the lagoon is a five mile long sandy Atlantic beach. The lagoon is ideal for sailing and windsurfing when the tide in.

The infinity swimming pool is 11 metres long and over 4 metres wide, with internal steps.

For golfers, there is a lovely new 36 hole golf club called Quinta da Ria just to the east of Tavira at a place called Fabrica. There is also the less challenging Benamor course, designed by Henry Cotton which opened in 2000 on the outskirts of Tavira.

Bird life is exceptionally interesting as we are on the migration routes of many species and in the heart of a well protected nature reserve.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fabulous week at your lovely house at Pinheiro. The setting is beautiful and the villa offered us everything with its spacious accommodation and gardens.

Lourdes thoroughly spoiled us with her daily visits to make sure everything was clean and tidy. This included the BBQ which was sparkling by 8.30 every morning! The garden was a delight and we enjoyed a short swim across the estuary and walk to the deserted beach.

We will certainly return to this unspoilt part of the Algarve. We enjoyed our visits to the beach via train and boat from St Lucia as well as evenings out in Tavira. The local taxi service was very efficient.

Thanks for allowing us to share the enjoyment of your holiday home which has been so well cared for and maintained.

Haven of peace and beauty: a true holiday

  • 5 of 5

The house has a wonderfully open feel to it, with much natural light coming in to enhance the white walls and terracotta floors. Bathrooms are large and are made cheerful by the bright wall tiles and colourful towels. Showers are wonderful, never lacking for hot water. The views are spectacular and live up to the photos shown, as does the garden and pool. Everything was immaculately clean and ordered. We hired bicycles and had great fun with our four children aged 5-8yrs exploring the natural park towards Formosa. We bought a dinghy and took it into the estuary and to spot crabs and other sea life. I enjoyed some great running routes around the area. The nearby fish restaurant is only 10 minutes' walk and is fantastic; we ate there several times. Otherwise it was equally relaxing to barbecue and eat on the superb terrace overlooking the estuary.

Wonderful holiday in lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

Well, we are back, duly refreshed after a very relaxing week at Casa Pinheiro.

The house was a delight, the location stunning, the area seemingly unscathed by tourism. As a group, we are very experienced villa holidayers, and make a point of always going somewhere different each year. That may well change !

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

Having got back to the UK i just wanted to say again what a fantastic villa you have. Wonderful location, stunning views and very peaceful. Loudres was great although i wish i had been able to converse with her a little better, my Portuguese unfortunately being non-existent. Anyway thanks once again, have a great year and will hopefully be speaking to you sometime soon about a repeat visit. btw i do agree with some previous comments made about the villa - the photos you have really don't do it justice, especially on the inside.

Lovely Casa Pinheiro

  • 5 of 5

We had incredible weather for February, day after day of the most beautiful sunrises, warm days (around 20 degrees), blue sky and lovely light. It is so relaxing looking at the changing colours of the lagoon as the tide comes in and out and there is a huge flock of flamingos feeding not far away.

The house is lovely and the under-floor heating kept us warm in the chilly evenings.

The bird life is exceptional but above all, it is the feeling of being at one with nature in an area that hasn’t been touched by hustle and bustle..

Lourdes is so thoughtful and efficient. We asked her to come and live with us but she said (I think) that she is too happy where she is!

A fortnight was a great break but next time I hope that we shall come for the whole month. It lifts the spirits in a way that only such beauty and sunshine combined can. We also hope to return in September/October if possible.

A truly relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our wonderful week at Casa Pinheiro. It was so peaceful (even with our 3 rampaging in the garden and the pool - which they loved) and the views so captivating I could spend hours just staring out to sea. It was truly relaxing. Thank you and to Lourdes who was so kind and helpful.

the best of times

  • 5 of 5

Back in the states (and to my email), I just want to tell you what a wonderful time we had at Casa Pinheiro. The house is lovely, and very beautifully kept. Our party of six had the best of times, and Dona Lurdes was super: always friendly and discrete, the best housekeeper one could wish for.

The nearest town is Tavira (5 miles away), an old-fashioned fishing port, full of lovely squares, churches, shops and markets. The nearest village, Luz de Tavira, is a mile away and has a small fish, fruit and vegetable market and a modest supermarket.

Casa Pinheiro is about half an hour by road from the Spanish border. The beautiful city of Seville is less than 2 hours away and the whole of Andalucia is within easy reach.

Lisbon can be reached in two and a half hours by road. The Algarve hills with their wonderful spring flowers and spectacular sunsets and good walking and birdwatching are ten minutes away.

Golf: All the main courses of the Algarve to the East and West are accessible. The nearest are the Henry Cotton designed course Benamor, and the Quinta da Ria da Quinta da Cima courses, all near Tavira
