Our own little piece of heaven – if only for one week. A fantastic cottage – beautifully decorated, clean and very comfortable. Good beaches locally and superb weather. Will definitely be back!



What an idyllic spot! Lovely to be able to escape the midday heat of summer and sit in the dappled shade of the tree, just listening to the birdsong and quiet. We’re so glad that we chose this unspoilt area as our introduction to the Algarve. - P & F Taylor, UK.



We have had a great holiday. The Summer House is a wonderful place to stay. Tastefully furnished and very well-equipped. And the area has fantastic beaches, and we loved Tavira – we couldn’t have wished for anything better.

Pretty Summer House - in good location nr Beaches

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy at the pretty Summer House! It is a lovely villa, very well equipped and with lots of attention to detail. Comfortable beds, very clean, everything was perfect. The pool and patio area is well maintained.

Great beaches in the area, lots of pretty countryside. Our only wish is that we could have stayed longer!

I would highly recommend this property.

Tranquil and Relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

" Second visit to The Summer House in the last 12 months! We explored further afield this time.

We had a great time at the villa, with plenty of hot sunshine, privacy and tranquility. The pool was great to cool off, and the shade at the villa was ideal, and one of the main reasons we returned.

Tavira Island beach was probably my favourite. Last year I wrote that after visiting the Eastern Algarve I had no desire to return to Spain, and I stand firm by my view. Come to to the Eastern Algarve - it's much better than Spain!

Thank you for your hospitality & for accommodating us in your wonderful villa. We had a great holiday and hope to return again.

To all future guests, you will love The Summer House! “

Our stay at the lovely Summer House

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our week at the Summer House very much.

It is a lovely place to recharge the batteries! We definitely recommend the fish & veg market in Tavira. Fresh figs were simply delicious!

Wonderful holiday villa!

  • 5 of 5

Second visit and a wonderful holiday, as before, at this beautiful villa. And we will definitely be returning. A pretty, very clean, comfortable and well appointed villa. We had the most idyllic, relaxing two weeks. Life slowed down to an unrecognizable pace compared with the usual stress of London.

If you are lucky enough to stay here at The Summer House, here are our recommendations:

Fabrica beach – beautiful and peaceful. Costa’s restaurant on Fabrica beach has good food and service, and wonderful views.

Barril beach was the overall favourite.

We like 'Luis dos Frangos' restaurant (great piripiri chicken), & 'Bica', and also good fish restaurants by the harbour – all excellent.

We love this villa with it's sparkling pool and restful ambience.

Beautiful little villa with tropical gardens!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful villa - it has everything you could need, and a wonderful garden and pool to relax in. We had a really fabulous holiday staying at the Summer House.

Driving around the rural roads is a great way to see true Algarve life - gorgeous river views, and loads of amazing crops. Of the beaches, Barril beach was our favourite over Tavira Island, but both are fantastic beaches. Tavira town made for a really nice wander-about. On our way back we stopped at 'Luis do Prego' restaurant (near the villa) and had the best meal!

Our stay at The Summer House was lovely and relaxing - just what we needed! Hope to come back! We have already been recommending the villa to friends and family!
