Updated: 12-Aug-2016

The beautiful open plan kitchen diner is very high spec including a Dolce Gusto coffee maker and with all the utensils you will need plus there is also a large wine/drinks chiller. There is also a large living room with flat screen TV, DVD player and various Bluetooth music systems dotted around the villa. Air conditioning is fitted throughout the villa as well as wifi.

The villa is wheel chair friendly with a downstairs bedroom and bathroom also the garden area is level. Children are also welcome but we do advise they are supervised at all times due to the outdoor pool.

We are situated fifty minutes drive from Faro International Airport. The local villa of Vila Nova De Cacela is about five to ten minutes drive away in which you can find all the local amenities including supermarket, cash machine, pharmacy, coffee shops and a wonderful bakery. The historic Roman town of Tavira is about a 20 minute drive away. Tavira is an old Portugese fishing town in which there are many shops, restaurants and bars but Tavira keeps its unique traditions and handsome character. Tavira is a great place to visit during the day but by night it also has a friendly calm night life. Cacela Vella is also quite close, situated on top of a hill it has stunning views to the eastern most lagoon of the Rea Formosa river. Cacela Vella also has a historic church plus some quaint charming and sweet coffee shops. We are located ten minutes drive from Praiar Verde beach, Manta Rota beach as well as Altura beach. The beaches in the area are extremely family friendly. Located quite close to us is the world famous Fernandes Restaurant where you can sample traditional Portuguese cuisine at local prices, this is the restaurant that the local Portuguese people go to. There are a few golf courses in the local area including Monta Rei Golf and Country Club and Quinta Da Ria Golf Course which is about twenty minutes drive away.

All in all your stay at Villa Flora Antonio will be magical and a holiday that will stay in your hearts and minds as a holiday you truly adored.

Very well equipped, spacious rooms, lovely pool.

  • 4 of 5

We were delighted with the villa which suited us, a group of six adults wanting to relax for a few days in a good quality villa in a quiet location.

Everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable was provided and the owner Sam could not have been more helpful. Villa Flora Antonio is excellent value for money suitable as an adults get away or for a family.

Wonderful, spacious Villa

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful 2 weeks at Villa Flora Antonio. The villa is amazingly well equipped and had everything we could possibly need and more. All of the bedrooms are spacious and the living areas too, which was a bonus as there were 8 of us!! The new addition of the pergola and outside furniture were perfect and the pool was loved by everyone, especially our children! The location was great and Sam was very helpful both before, during and after our stay. We wouldn't hesitate in recommending this villa to anyone who wants a relaxing time in peaceful surroundings.

The Beautiful, stunning Villa Flora Antonio

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of five with three teenaged children so Villa Antonio was the perfect destination especially as the children had their own rooms. The Villa is set in a beautiful peaceful location, within a 5 minute walk to the nearest bar/restaurant and a short drive to the gorgeous, unspoilt Eastern Algarve beaches and Spain. The Villa is finished to an incredibly high standard throughout both inside and out and has the most amazing swimming pool! The Villa and garden are really clean and well maintained and is a credit to the local cleaning staff and gardener. Sam, the owner, does everything that she can to ensure that your stay is as comfortable as possible and is incredibly lucky to own such a beautiful Villa. We will no doubt be returning again in the very near future!

Fantastic Villa stay

  • 5 of 5

Recently enjoyed a stay for our extended family at the villa, attending a wedding at the nearby Monte Rei Golf resort. The villa was exceptionally well furnished with all that you could want. Outside, the garden furniture was very comfortable and the newly added pergola given welcome shade. The pool and gardens were well kept and we used the charcoal bar b q several times.

The villa is in a very quiet location with lovely views across the valley. However, the downside of this is that a car is essential as there is very little within walking distance. It is a 10 minute drive to the N125 and about the same to Vila Nova which had all we needed. Sam was extremely helpful before and during our stay and we would highly recommend this property.

Wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this villa for four weeks this summer and if I'm honest I didn't want to leave! I was there with my three sons ( 14, 11 and 6 ) and between work commitments my husband joined us too. The villa is very tastefully furnished and with everything you could think of at hand it really is a home from home. It is only a short drive to the nearest town and we found a couple of really inexpensive supermarkets so we ate at the villa most evenings and completely chilled for the entire month. We went to Aqualand water park twice which was great fun and my oldest son went diving at a nearby diving school so the kids were entertained. Having wifi at the villa was a huge plus for the teenager in the house ( and handy for communicating for me too ) and the large pool meant I could read my books in peace. Heaven. Would highly recommend this villa if you like peace and quiet but with the option of doing the usual holiday trips to town/the beach if you prefer. Sam the owner was absolutely wonderful. Nothing was a bother and anything that needed sorting was done promptly and without fuss. Super service. She also helped me source a fantastic local car hire which was extremely inexpensive and easy to locate at the airport. Great holiday.

My husband and I would not hesitate in recommending this villa as a perfect holiday destination.

If you want peace and quiet in well kept beautiful surroundings then look no further. The villa is fitted out to a very high standard and is clean and well maintained. It provides everything you might need, from a well equipped kitchen/laundry room, spacious living area with comfortable furniture, lovely bedrooms with big comfortable beds. Although this is a luxury villa it is very much home from home.

The outside area is very relaxing with plenty of patio space around the good sized private pool and well kept gardens.

A car is necessary to enable you to explore the area, should you want to. There are lovely beaches about 20 minutes away at Manta Rota or Monte Gordo, plus many others. Monte Gordo also has a casino is you fancy a flutter! There are a few good supermarkets also about 20 minutes at Pingo Doce or Lidl in Villa Real san Antonio. Tavira has a very nice shopping centre.

There are plenty of restaurants around the area, whether you want a light midday snack on the beach or evening meal.

Sam (the owner) is always very friendly and a pleasure to deal with. She has always been most helpful should we need anything and nothing is too much trouble.

My husband is able to work whilst on holiday as the Villa has broadband available . . . . unfortunately on the occasions he works I HAVE to sit around the pool with a good book and maybe a glass of wine!!

The drive from the airport is approximately 40 minutes and very straight forward. The motorway is very quiet and the toll is easy now that you no longer have to pay at a post office as most hire companies have their cars fitted with a device to automatically take payment, this is relatively inexpensive.

We love returning to this part of the Algarve, in particular Sam's Villa.

Activity and Interests


There are plenty of beaches to visit. The nearest is Manta rota, wich is about 6km away. The beach in Altura is great day out for any family, and a little further you have Monte Gordo beach. They all have plenty of bars, restaurants and parking.


We highly recommend you hire a car when renting the villa. The local airport is Faro (it is around 40 min by car). The A22 motorway is around 4km from the villa.


Bars, restaurants and supermarkets are within a 10 min drive. The nearest village is Casela, where you will find banks shops, markets, bars, restaurants, pharmacy etc.

Further Details:

Nova Cacela is a wonderful quiet town with plenty to offer. Tavira is a great old town well worth a visit, there are plenty of great places to eat. There are water parks you can visit, around an hour's drive. If you want a late night out, you can visit Monte Gordo ... also there are many bars and a couple of night clubs on the 125 road. Cacela Vela has a charming old church, with fantastic sea views and very nice places to eat. There is plenty to do in the Eastern Algarve and the prices are very reasonable.
