Pool House has a roof terrace affording total privacy for sunbathing. Price for 2 in Pool House is the same as for Olive Tree (except July and August)

Gardens: The extensive sub-tropical gardens of Casa Moinho are there to be enjoyed by guests. A barbeque sits at the bottom of a flight of steps leading from the belvedere at the end of the pool. Lovely walks in the surrounding countryside .

Golf--- Complete set golf cubs and trolley for hire:~~ There are now several golf courses within about 15 minutes drive of the property. Benamor, east of Tavira, is a delightful and well-regarded addition for the golfers of the Algarve - it has spectacular views of the hills and the sea to enjoy whilst you are playing and a club house which incorporates a chapel of great beauty. Quinta Ria again very beautiful 2 -18 hole courses on the edge of the sea. Castro Marim near Vila Real offers a slightly more challenging game. Various courses within 25 mins drive over the border into Spain...Tennis is also available in the vicinity. Deep sea fishing and sailing all within 15/20 mins . Para- gliding, kite surfing, etc. within easy reach at Cabanas and Tavira Island.

Tavira: This is an ancient town of great charm - the possessor of over 30 churches and many historic buildings. With narrow streets and alleyways and bars unchanged for decades, it is a place to wander and experience a life fast disappearing. Casa Moinho is well placed for those wishing to explore the little known and still untouched hills of the Algarve...an area time has truly forgotten. But it is also within striking distance of the more lively attributes of the Algarve !!

Spain is just down the road and Seville is within 2 hours travel.

Cozy secluded cottage in Olive Tree House

  • 5 of 5

We have had a lovely holiday in Olive Tree House. We had nice helpful hosts and lived very secluded and cozy.

Surprises: Small delicious lunch plate upon arrival. Washing and ironing our clothes.

Yes, we would really like to come again

Yours sincerely

Ole and Gitte

Beautiful peace near everything you could want

  • 5 of 5

Cynthia and Jonathan keep the property and gardens beautifully. We were directed exactly where to park so that our car would be in the shade and also not directly under trees and opened our apartment door to find a bottle of rose , beer and other welcoming foody things. There was really helpful information about the surrounding area and the restaurants with the best views in the mountains etc and we followed it all and were surprised by just HOW beautiful everything is! The restaurant with the mountain views was beautiful and crazily cheap! A whole meal including wine and dessert for 20euros for 2 people with views to die for!! We also loved pottering around Santa luzia, fabrica, and loved eating at the restaurant in the village- great food and wine (2.50 euros for a carafe of house wine!! And it t

We found amazing beaches and were always delighted to come back to the airy, light, well equipped olive tree. We loved having meals in the evening on the terrace at olive tree, with the stars and the candlelight (there are outside lights but we preferred it that way!!). We also went to The fish market in tavira and barbecued fish on our balcony which was delicious and a lovely experience. The weather was fantastic which added to it all!!

There's table tennis by the pool and pool loungers so if you fancy many days or one day by the pool, everything you need it there (including pool towels .. And shower towels- very useful!!)

We had no complaint at all, except for it was so perfect that we have found it impossible to get back into normal life!!!

We would HIGHLY recommend to friends (in fact already have)- particularly as you could use pool house as well as olive tree and sleep at least 6 I believe! thank you Cynthia!

Beautiful olive tree house

  • 5 of 5

My partner and i stayed at the Olive tree house for 10 days, Cynthia and Jonathan were so helpful always on hand if you needed anything, but never invading your privacy. Pool and gardens absolutely superb. We would have no hesitation in recommending Casa Moinho to anyone.

An amazing haven of tranquillity.

  • 5 of 5

Cynthia has created lovely apartments set in a beautiful garden, we awoke to birds singing and went to sleep to the sound of crickets. The first few days were awful, cold, wet and windy but Cynthia provided food, fires, candles and Scrabble. When the weather improved we were able to really appreciate our surroundings. She is the perfect hostess and we will definitely be returning.
