Overview

About the property

Villa near Conceicao / Cabanas, Tavira, Algarve, Portugal - Peaceful Location 5 Mins Drive from the Coast

The detached villa is 45 minutes from Faro (the nearest airport) and 20km from the Spanish border. The nearest towns of Conceicao and Cabanas are 5 minutes away with a variety of local shops and restaurants. A choice of excellent beaches can be reached in about 10 minutes, lining the seaward side of a 35 mile-long sand bar which is an internationally protected resting place for birds travelling between Northern Europe and Africa. The villa is ideal as a base for investigating this peaceful area and there is plenty for golfers with three first class courses within 5 minutes of the villa. The nearest is Benamor Golf designed by Sir Henry Cotton.

About Martin Spencer

Hi there!

Casa Rosa has been a great place for us to enjoy family holidays since we bought it in 2002

With two business partners I have my own IT support business based in Manchester, Leicester and Hatfield.

As well as holidaying at Casa Rosa I enjoy travel to other countries, recent trips have included the west coast of Canada and a visit to Niagara Falls via New York.

Martin Spencer purchased this villa in 2002

Why Martin Spencer chose Tavira region

We had always enjoyed holidays in the Algarve and after a break of about 10 years returned for a last minute break. I had just left my job of 21 years and was thinking of investing money in property and while on holiday found Casa Rosa. It ticks all the boxes for me; quiet rural location within easy reach of lots of interesting places to visit/eat out, very generous accomodation with plenty of room so that even with an extended family group there is space for individual peace and quiet(!) and with scope for us to develop to our tastes. We have spent a lot of money on the place, upgrading the bathrooms, kitchen and adding wood stoves for winter breaks. Last year we added the fifth bedroom which completes the interior nicely.

What makes this villa unique

I find it so very relaxing - 45 minutes from the airport and the holiday starts at once.

Pick a lemon or two and have a G&T while the BBQ warms up to cook fish fresh from the market in Tavira

It is nice not to have to keep small ones on a chain near the pool, the gate can be closed to stop them wandering into danger and the patio has plenty of room for them to play.

Unless I want to drive further afield to sample the delights of ZooMarine or go for tapas in Spain I never have to drive more than 5 - 10 minutes to get anything I may need which is as close to ideal as I could ask!

If you want to look for activities away from the villa we have a comprehensive list at the villa, as well as lots of board games and paperbacks if you prefer.
