Overview

About the property

Sleeps 10. 12 on request. 5 en-suite bedrooms. Pool. Tennis court. Games room

One of the finest villas in the Eastern Algarve, this is set in its own grounds within the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve overlooked by an ancient Moorish watchtower. It is very well equipped with pool heating, air conditioning and a private all-weather, floodlit, tennis court. There is also a music system, wireless internet and satellite TV. The beach, restaurants, bars, and market are 2.4 kilometres. Boat trips, kayaking, kite surfing, horse riding, fishing and golf are just some of the activities nearby. Staying at the house, you can enjoy the large heated pool (14x7m approx) which has an electric cover.

Importantly for parents, there is a discreet, but effective, protection screen, enabling access to the pool to be closed to little babies and very young toddlers.

The games room has a full-size pool table and table tennis. The villa is also equipped with many family games including Boules, backgammon and chess. To the rear and west side of the villa is a vineyard. Although the villa is secluded, it is within easy reach of the local town of Fuseta. Olhao, which is the largest seaport on the Algarve, is only twenty minutes drive. The beautiful, old Town of Tavira, is also just twenty minutes away. The Spanish border forty minutes. Video available on Website.

Further Details: Born of sea and sand, Fuseta is a fishing village with traditional square shared houses just a 30 minute drive from Faro airport. It offers, not only a golden sandy beach on the lagoon with warm waters in which to swim and snorkel, but also mile upon mile of white sand on the island of Armona, just a few minutes away by ferryboat. Locally caught and barbecued seafood, clams cooked in the traditional Portuguese way, beef cooked on a hot stone and monkfish kebabs are just a few of the many delicious dishes served in local restaurants all within easy walking distance of the apartment.

Coast/Beach: The white sand beach is about 15 minute walk and restaurants are also within easy walking distance. Boat trips, kayaking, kite-surfing, horse riding, fishing and golf are just some of the activities nearby.

Guestbook comments from the owner

August 2017



Casa dos Zefiros is so special that I really want to keep this secret to myself - from the wonderful owner’s care to the always available, but never intrusive, manager. The thought and care, which goes into making your stay faultless, is incredible and the quality of the house, from the tennis court to the swimming pool, is outstanding. Absolutely fabulous! We shall return.

Amazing villa, everything you need for relaxing holiday in this unspoilt area of the Algarve

  • 5 of 5

Just had amazing week in this stunning villa, 11 family members. Plenty of space for us all, and all with our own bathrooms.

Great games room with table tennis, billiards, table football. Tennis courts floodlit for night tournaments.

Kitchen extremely well kitted out - short of nothing.

Amazing heated pool.

Weather in the mid 20s - what more can you ask in October.

We loved this unspoilt part of the Algarve. Lovely fishing villages, amazing fish restaurants and much Better value for money than many parts of Spain.

Home from home. Highly recommended for families and friends

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a warm welcome and a home cooked meal. The house, garden and pool were kept beautifully clean. I like to travel the world but this time I thought I would take my family. My grandchildren lived in the pool and the tennis court. They got great enjoyment from the games room too. My daughter and I, once little ones were asleep, did some painting of the ever changing colors of the landscape.

Amazing Villa

  • 5 of 5

Our family and a group of friends (6 adults and 2 kids in total) spent an amazing week in April 2017 at the villa. There is almost nothing to fault so I will list a few of the highlights that are hopefully helpful in deciding to book here. 1) The welcome is by far the best we've had a holiday house with a home cooked meal, some beer and wine provided. 2) The pool is fenced with a lovely glass fence that gave us peace of mind with a 2 year old wanting to run around in the garden most of the day. 3) The tennis court is well maintained and a nice thing to have on site. 4) The gardens are lovely. 5) The table outside the kitchen was basically used all day by our group, whether it was for breakfast, lunch, dinner or just having a gin and tonic or sharing a bottle of 'green wine'. 6) To say the kitchen is well stocked is an understatement - we certainly enjoyed finding and using as many 'gadgets' as we could. The kitchen, along with the pantry area made preparing meals a joy. BTW - bring someone adept at starting a fire and using the bbq as it's a great way to prepare fish or pork.

A few other points - we didn't walk to Fuseta as we had a buggy but the town was a quick (under 5 minutes) drive. I definitely recommend the fish restaurant mentioned in the welcome book in Fuseta. There are a couple of larger supermarkets in Olhao where you can stock up on supplies. Bedrooms were nice, beds were comfortable and everything was cleaned. The 5x/week cleaning service was a bonus and it was nice to have a quick tidy done, which included sweeping the outside area, the kitchen as well as having the beds made and toilet paper/kitchen supplies/soap stocked.

All in all, I definitely recommend this house and you won't be disappointed if you book and stay here. With what seems an endless list of places to visit, this is right at the top of our list for a return visit.

Well managed and delightful location

  • 5 of 5

We were an assorted party of friends who needed a Villa that had a Tennis court and large swimming pool together with comfortable bedrooms and ample space for dining and general recreation. This Villa delivered. It is situated within walking distance of the village of Fuseta, which has a supermarket that provided for our needs and is in an ideal position to travel by car to various locations around the Algarve. The Villa is in an isolated position and has wonderful views across the Ria Formosa. There is adequate Wi Fi, and an excellent games room situated in the grounds. If you are looking for a quite location, with views, and easy access to other parts of the Algarve, then this might be the place for you. The photographs and video of the villa which are posted on line represent a true representation of how the Villa really is. Subject to everybody’s availability we have already spoken about a return visit – that must say something!!

Perfection ...!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week feeling like royalty ... Perfect villa... Perfect staff ... Perfect weather ... We were rather apprehensive about transferring money into someone's bank account as one hears of so many scams and villas not existing and so forth but June, the owner couldn't of been more helpful and reassuring ... She even rang me on several occasions to answer questions that I had emailed her ... A lovely lady ...! Alvero was at the villa on our arrival, to show us around, then we had a lovely meal that was prepared for us by Leanor ... The pool was perfect for our 'Olympic style' games ( not that any of the six of us in our party are athletes ) ... The tennis court we used on several evenings as it was far too hot to play during the day ... We found that turning off the lights around the grounds ( which look amazing by the way ) made the floodlights stay on without going off half way through the game ... We had the aircon on in the bedrooms at night and kitchen and lounge on on a few occasions and used the kitchen appliances on a regular basis... the electricity bill was only 61 euros for the week which is very reasonable indeed ... Overall a definite 5 star without doubt ...from the first enquiry to the waiving us goodbye by Alvero and Leanor ... I think June has thought of everything to make this a perfect holiday ( even down to the lovely smelling body wash in all the bathrooms ) .. We are very discerning customers to say the least, and we weren't disappointed ... Many thanks June, to you and your staff ..!

There was a gourmet meal to great us, 5 gorgeous bedrooms, a stunning pool and gardens, close to golf, beach....we were supposed to travel the whole algarve and could not leave! Leonora cooked us wonderful meals and we felt like royalty from the beginning to the farewell! Thank you June, Alvaro and Leonora for such a glorious visit!

Born of sea and sand, Fuseta is a fishing village with traditional square shared houses just a 30 minute drive from Faro airport. It offers, not only a golden sandy beach on the lagoon with warm waters in which to swim and snorkel, but also mile upon mile of white sand on the island of Armona, just a few minutes away by ferryboat. Locally caught and barbecued seafood, clams cooked in the traditional Portuguese way, beef cooked on a hot stone and monkfish kebabs are just a few of the many delicious dishes served in local restaurants.

Golf: 30 minutes drive from the villa are the spectacular sister courses of Quinta da Cima and Quinta da Ria. Whilst they sit comfortably with each other, and enjoy the same clubhouse and management, each course has its own distinctive character. Quinta da Cima is the longer at nearly 7000m. It is a championship styled course. Its undulating terrain, constant surprises, (the 14th and 15th through the orange groves), trying to avoid the charming (but ball enticing) cascading streams, not to mention the 2 lakes that are waiting to capture your score on the last three holes, make this a unique golfing experience. Quinta da Ria, although a little shorter, is perhaps more stunningly beautiful, with some of the holes playing above the Ria Formosa lagoon. Man-made lakes keep the golfer’s interest focused. Within easy driving distance are Quinta do Lago, Vale do Lobo, San Lorenzo, Pinheiros Altos, Vallamoura, Villa Sol, and many other.
