About the property

Stylish renovated cottage with lots of outdoor space includes a pool and hot tub

A Joia da Coroa is a stylish one bedroom cottage nestled in the hills just outside Santo Estevao ,near Tavira. It is a great place to unwind either summer or winter , all amenities are the exclusive use of the cottage and are not shared by anyone else. They include a swimming pool, hot tub ,a large garden which is punctuated by a variety of trees, olives, citrus , almond and fig. There is pergola under which are two hammocks for really relaxing , and area where boules and badminton can be played. The cottage has free wifi, a woodburner for cosy winter nights and Internet tv which provides the very latest films, box sets, sports channels and regular tv channels.You enter the cottage via a side door into the airy good size kitchen . The kitchen is fitted with granite work surfaces and modern appliances, a fridge/freezer,washing machine, cooker and hob and a Nespress coffee machine. There is a table and chairs for eating and a small wood burner . From the kitchen is the hallway which leads to a fully tiled modern shower room.Further along the hallway is the bright high ceilinged living room which is tastefully furnished and has good views of the garden and beyond , great for watching the sunrise.. The bedroom has a king size bed , air conditioning and a small ensuite cloakroom.Immediately outside the living room is a sitting area good for morning coffee and afternoon shade. Other outdoor space includes a barbecue and pizza oven area , a shaded seating and eating area, the pool with loungers and more seating/eating area, a decked area with the hot tub which has views of the sea.

Currently we use a transfer company that charges 35 euros each way from the airport and local trips to Tavira or Fuseta would cost approx. 14 euros, so,if you don't want the worry of hiring a car this could be an alternative. Within walking distance is the village of Santo Estevao and has a couple of cafes, a restaurant, pharmacy and min supermarket. Slightly closer to the cottage is the hamlet of Butoque where you can find a couple of bars and a mini supermarket.

Lovely Easter break

  • 5 of 5

Very peaceful and relaxing stay in a lovely setting. It felt as if we were on a retreat but with all amenities you could need only a short distance away. A lovely spacious garden and a private pool and hot tub. Amazing! Definitely will have a return visit.

Absolutely Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

Great service from our hosts who made sure we had driving instructions and everything we needed to enjoy our stay including suggestions of what to see and do. Upon arrival we were greeted with friendly, warm smiles and a glass of wine!! The pictures do not to the unit justice, it really is lovely. The decor is warm & tasteful with an artists flair. I really fell in love with it! Plus it is spacious, spotless and has absolutely everything you need to do as little, or as much, as you want. Tavira, we thought, is probably by far the best place to stay in the Algarve if you want access to beaches but not the commercial activity of the other busy touristy spots along the coast. You can get pretty much anywhere, including Spain, in no time at all, so why not stay somewhere that is still authentically Portuguese. We loved it and highly recommend both this unit and Tavira for anyone considering a vacation in the Algarve.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

Delightful house, beautifully furnished and accessorised and very well equipped. The highlight though, is the stunning garden and many seating areas all of which have tasteful furniture, lighting and planting. The (essential!) pool is pristine and the whole property is meticulously maintained by the friendly and helpful owners
