Villa Tina is a large property situated in mature gardens of approximately a third of an acre with it's own private swimming pool. It provides accommodation that is very flexible and perfect for two families or a large family with adult children.
The villa has 3 double or twin bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, new well-fitted kitchen, large lounge, dining room and utility. The Villa also has WiFi.
Outside is a pool, (approximately 8m x 4.5m), verandas, terrace and roof-top terrace.
The apartment beneath has its own new kitchen, lounge, dining, two bedrooms, two bathrooms and large terrace. Families or friends holidaying together can thus have their own space and the space to enjoy time together in private and secluded surroundings.
There is a large outside patio area with seating and sun beds for 10 people. There is also a small sand pit for toddlers and a ping pong table for older children and adults.
During the high season we prefer to rent out the Villa and Apartment as a whole to one party or family, but outside of the peak season we often rent out just the 3 bedroom villa. If you are interested in this option please contact us for the lower rates that apply for renting out the villa only.
The area is a happy mix of Portuguese and foreign nationals who patronise 4 local restaurants within walking distance - 3 of which offer outstanding value. Town is a reasonably cheap taxi ride or short car ride away. The villa is very handy for the N125 and thence Algarve shopping.
Hi, we are Greg and Tania. I was a major shareholder in a private housebuilding company which built a lot of luxury homes in Yorkshire over nearly 30 years. We got disillusioned with housebuilding and diversified into leisure - and now run a family-owned holiday park in the Peak District National Park near Dove Dale called Rivendale. Tania designs and makes bridal gowns from her studio near Ashbourne.
We are lucky to live in a small village in beautiful surroundings in Derbyshire which we tend to take for granted. We have travelled to many parts of the world and stayed in some fantastic places - but enjoy returning to Portugal where we have friends, the pace of life is slower, and the sun usually shines.
Tania Potter purchased this villa in 2000
We loved this location because there is peace and quiet, privacy and vestiges of the old Portuguese way of life around - but we are only a mile or so from Montechoro and a 10 minute drive from Albufeira Old Town & Santa Eulalia beach. Also, we have six bars and restaurants we walk to which have multinational clientele, offer excellent value and - unlike the expat ghettos in the Algarve - remain open in low season. There is everything close by - multiplex cinemas & late night shopping at Algarve shopping about 20 minutes up the road, Michelin starred restaurants & probably the best beaches in Europe at Gale, Evaristo, Raphael, golf everywhere, marinas at Albufeira, Vilamoura, shark fishing etc etc. Faro airport is an easy 40 min drive, Seville is a couple of hours away. It has everything.
The great thing about Villa Tina apart from its location is the size of the plot. The garden is secure and private with walls, hedges & gates & ample parking for 4 or more cars. You can pick your own limes, Nesparros, Pomegranites etc from the garden.
What is almost unique about Villa Tina is the flexible accommodation. The apartment has its own new kitchen, lounge, bathrooms, dining room, sun terrace - as does the villa. So two families or families with young adults can have their own space to retreat to..but can still sunbathe or have a barbq on the large terraces together. There is even a very private roof top terrace for working on the all over tan.
It is possible for young adults to walk to the bars & clubs at The Strip for the nightlife - but taxis are plentiful & cheap.
Villa Tina is beautiful! We had a wonderful time and would certainly recommend it to friends and family. It being our first time in Portugal, we were extremely impressed with the place, the beaches are fantastic and the people really friendly. We would like to say a big thank you. All the information you provided was extremely useful and made a huge difference to our stay. We hope to contact you again soon for another wonderful stay. - Kelly G.
The villa and the holiday were fab! I would definitely recommend the villa! It was in a perfect location for us and very relaxing. Hope to come back again in the near future. - Janine F.
