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.
