Peaceful and Relaxing

Fantastic villa, very spacious and well equipped. A short drive to town for beaches, supermarkets and restaurants and some excellent local restaurants (thank you for the recommendations Doug and Flora). What a fantastic holiday, many many thanks! We will be back, I would highly recommend!

Beautiful villa in peaceful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at Quinta Bonita from July 8-16. We were 3 adults and 4 kids of whom one was an 8 months old baby and we all just loved it. The house is very big with plenty of outdoor space where you can sit and relax and enjoy your dinner or breakfast. And the nature surrounding the house is not just beautiful, but very peaceful as well. You can just leave the door open and let the children play. No traffic, no noise. And then there is of course the swimming pool which was the best part, if you ask the kids! Everything was clean and ready for us. The owners were very nice and helpful and near by, if you needed them. And even though we had almost too warm nights, we will definitely come back, if we are to come to this area again. We most definitely recommend it!

Amazing experience

  • 5 of 5

Doug and Flora went out of their way to make us welcome and ensure we were comfortable and happy. The villa is beautifully designed with every amentiy you could want. The pool and barbecue area were sheltered and secluded and we enjoyed the views over the surrounding valley each day. I would recommend this property highly and we can't wait to go back next year.

Fantastic villa, everything you need and more. The owners are lovely people who couldn't have been any more helpful. Perfect location for peace and quiet but close enough to Tavira for shops n restaurants. Can't wait to return. I would recommend it to all my friends as long as they don't book for the dates I want.

Best holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommended, we had an easy, fun and relaxing holiday. Quinta Bonita is only 10 minutes drive from beautiful Tavira and is tucked away in unspoilt countryside. The house was clean, well furnished and equipped. We had everything we needed. There were plenty of beds for the children (aged 9, 7 and 3), to choose from. The pool was brilliant, a good size and temperature with lovely, chemical-free water. It is well fenced and gated so we never had to worry where the little one was. The owners were great hosts. They were close by and were incredibly helpful and kind.

We didn't really do a lot. The children just wanted to stay in the pool all day, so we did. We explored a few beaches. The favourite was Barril beach and we really enjoyed getting on the little train which takes you over the 2km of nature reserve to get there. Our 9 year-old loved jogging alongside on the path. Our favourite restaurant was O Forno, about 5 minutes drive away in Saint Estavo. We found Lidl in Tavira was a good place to shop. Tavira has a lovely unspoilt charm and everyone we encountered was very friendly.

Quinta Bonita is a lovely country holiday house. You reach it by a track road with fields of orange trees either side. At night there was a welcome breeze and we sat and looked at the stars every night of our two week stay.

I wish we were there now.
