About the property

Catita is a friendly, welcoming little fisherman’s house with 2 bedrooms.

« Catita » means cute in Portuguese.

Catita is a friendly, welcoming little fisherman’s house in the stunning location of Pinheiro. The 'sister' house of Ceu Azul ,Catita is located on the Ria Formosa Nature reserve, a rare, secluded and unspoilt spot in the Eastern Algarve.

Wake up to the sound of the sea and birds chirping in a beautiful calm environment. Take a stroll along the walkway and cycle route on the lagoons edge, which also has a fabulous fish restaurant. All of this right on your doorstep. A birdwatchers paradise, with easy access to beaches and towns along the Eastern Algarve, all within a few minutes drive from Catita.

We are very pleased to offer Catita for rental in 2015, newly renovated, the cottage offers 2 bedrooms, a cozy lounge and dining area, fully equipped kitchen, delightful garden and some stunning sea views from the large roof terrace. As you walk in through the gate you will immediately feel at home in the friendly welcoming little house with the front terrace inviting you to enjoy lazy breakfasts, long lunches and evening barbecues.

Surrounded by Mediterranean pines and plants it truly is a relaxing, sunny escape in the paradise of the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve. The garden attracts many species of bird life and chameleons.

The house has a double bedroom plus a two bed room. The shower room in Catita is spacious, and has a walk in shower. The comfortable lounge has seating for 4, a TV, DVD player, WiFi internet and wood burner that heats the whole cottage in the cooler months. Double doors open out onto the front terrace. Facing south, between the lounge and kitchen is the dining area. The kitchen is fully equipped for self catering and also has double doors which open onto the front terrace, making the space open and sunny. There is air-conditioning (cold/hot) in the bedrooms making Catita perfect for summer and winter holiday's.

On the east side of Catita, steps lead up onto the roof terrace which covers the whole roof and can be equipped with deck chairs, perfect for watching the stars and the lights of the boats fishing in the sea. Wonderful for sunbathing or evening drinks after a stroll back from the fabulous local Restaurant 'Fialho'

We do hope we have thought of everything to make your stay at Catita an experience to be enjoyed over and over again.

Catita-Cute and Comfy!

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed in Pinheiro for many a year from a Villa at the luxury end of the market to fishermen's cottages and all stations between.

so we feel qualified to judge Catita.

It is a cottage and a comfortable, welcoming one at that in a very quiet corner just a short pleasant walk from Fialho on the lagoon, the local fish restaurant which is a must!

There is excellent outside space.The garden is much larger than it looks at first glance and the roof terrace is great in full sun offering views across the lagoon.

Two features stand out for me....the really comfortable double bed and the great spacious shower.

This was an ideal property for our needs and we would use it again without hesitation. It may be a three star property but it has a genuine four star ambiance.

Finally you can be assured of great, speedy service from the management team.

Mac and Jean Cummings

tolles stilvolles Haus mit allem was man braucht

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben im Haus 14 Tage verbracht und die Zeit sehr genossen. Ruhig und wunderschön gelegen ist es ein sehr guter Ausgangspunkt die Ostalgarve zu erkunden. Am Grundstück befindet sich ein schön angelegter Garten, der auch für Kinder Platz zum Toben bietet. Die Strände sind, genau wie das Haus, nur mit dem Auto zu erreichen. Wer gern bei offenem Fenster schläft, kann dies im Doppelbettschlafzimmer allerdings nicht.
