Charming Private Villa with Pool



Updated: 14-Nov-2016
Villa near Santo Estavao, Tavira, Algarve - Charming Secluded Location in Countryside, 10 Mins Drive to Beach

Charming Portuguese-style villa. Double patio doors open from the living room onto the covered terrace with its wooden patio table where you can eat breakfast or lunch and gaze out to the hills beyond. Move round to the tiled BBQ area in the evening enjoy looking up at starry skies. A villa private pool (approx 6 by 4 metres)and large gardens that are private and not overlooked, it is the ideal holiday retreat.. An adjustable, sturdy extend-able child-safety gate can be erected on request and means that you can create a safe play area on the front terrace. Some guests are so content that they spend the whole holiday there! Yet only 10 mins drive away are the fabulous unspoilt beaches of the Ilha da Tavira, reached by a 5 mins ferry ride through the waters of the Rio do Formosa wildlife reserve. Tavira has many restaurants, cafes, bars, supermarkets and shops. Families with children, walkers, golfers and nature lovers will love it..

Idyllic Casa in a quiet location

  • 4 of 5

Booked at very short notice however absolutely perfect find. A gorgeous Casa in a quiet and peaceful location in lovely Portuguese countryside. On arrival the agent was very helpful and welcoming and the Casa was as described but also much better. Very clean and spacious, very cooling and refreshing pool and the facilities provided were fine, the surrounding area is gorgeous, Tavira itself is a typical Portuguese Town but without the multiple tourists of other areas of he Algarve. The Nature Reserve is amazing with many islands that are well worth driving to different locations to catch a beach ferry. I suppose the best comment I can make is that I would happily return here.

If I would pass any slightly negative comments it could have benefitted from WiFi for my Boys!!! and the BBQ hadn't been cleaned for so long my wife refused to use it...but we used the kitchen anyway.
