The beautiful Ria Formosa.: The Ria Formosa in the Algarve is a beautiful labyrinth of lagoons separated from the sea by a coastal dune system which is broken up by various natural inlets. It is one of the most important nature reserves in the network of wetlands that links Europe and sub-Saharan Africa. The Ria has an enormous variety of natural habitats that provide refuge, feeding and breeding areas for an infinite number of flora and fauna and is a haven for birds.

The beaches of the isles of Faro, Barreta, Culatra, Armona and Tavira form a natural barrier to the Ocean. Behind are the dunes, sometimes just a narrow strip and sometimes wider and then come the labyrinth of lagoons and small sand islands and channels. At low tide other salty habitats are uncovered forming marches and salt marshes.

A wintering ground for many migratory birds. The Estuary has an enormous variety of natural habitats and biotopes that provide refuge, feeding or breeding areas for an infinite number of organisms.

Golfers to the East Algarve!: If you're looking for a golfer's paradise, then look no further than the Algarve for your ultimate golfing experience.

With it's brilliant, sunny climate and dramatic courses throughout the region, it's easy to see why the Algarve is the most popular golfing destination in Europe.

The East Algarve boasts the wonderful Monte Rei course, designed by Nicklaus, Quinta do Vale course designed by Ballesteros,by the river Guardiana, as well as QUinta da Cima, Ria, Benamor and Castro Marim.

Villa de rêve pour des vacances

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons été bien accueilli à notre arrivée par Else. La villa est très bien située, la plage est à quelques minutes de marche. On y retrouve une patisserie où l'on peut y acheter du pain, des tartelettes et beignets (très délicieux) et prendre un café. Il y a un intermarché à quelques kilomètres et un marchand de fruits et légumes. La plage est de toute beauté et la mer calme et agréable. La piscine a fait la joie de tous, surtout en fin de soirée. Nous avons passé de merveilleuses vacances. Merci encore pour votre accueil et disponibilité.

Au plaisir de vous revoir.

Semana incrível em família!

  • 5 of 5

Face às constantes mudanças que a vida nos proporciona a todo e qualquer momento, a nossa família seguiu rumos diferentes, sempre em busca das melhores condições. Ora isto traz sacrifícios em diferentes aspectos, sendo um dos maiores o afastamento e por sua vez a saudade. Até que decidimos que com um bocado de esforço podemos compensar esse afastamento ao longo do ano, passando pelo menos uma semana juntos. E é aqui que a casa do casal Andrew e Else surge e nos permite esquecer por uma semana esse distanciamento. A casa oferece excelentes condições para um ajuntamento familiar e proporcionar uma semana incrível de férias! Sendo que a família é constituída por crianças pequenas (dos 2 aos 5 anos) a zona da piscina ter uma vedação é uma segurança acrescida para qualquer pai ou mãe (apesar de todos os cuidados a ter). A casa é muito próxima da excelente praia do Cabeço (menos de 5 min a pé) e tem tudo o que é preciso. Experiência a repetir certamente!

Obrigado.

As melhores férias em família

  • 5 of 5

Moradia magnifica para passar férias em família. Todas as instalações superaram a ideia que eu tinha da casa, foi a melhor escolha que eu podia ter tido. Limpeza excelente. Melhor parte: a piscina privativa. Condições perfeitas para tudo. Recomendo vivamente esta moradia. Para o ano estou lá caidinha.

Obrigado pela simpatia, pois fomos muito bem recebidos.

Excelente Localização com Condições Acima da Média

  • 5 of 5

Foi um agradável surpresa!!!

Bastante melhor do que esperávamos. A casa é bastante espaçosa e com tudo o que necessitamos para o dia-a-dia. A decoração é boa, considerando que estamos a falar de uma casa de férias.

A zona traseira do jardim é a melhor parte. Está bem isolada o que permite estar em privacidade, e usufruir da piscina, que é muito boa, e da zona de descanso - 5****.

Também a zona de refeições é muito boa, para esta altura do ano, pois permite fazer churrascos e saboreá-los à sombra e sem a agitação do Algarve em pleno verão.

Quanto à localização, é perfeita. Permite ir para a praia sem necessidade de usar carro - uns 7/8 minutos a pé.

Local a repetir para o ano. Espero é que com tão boas referencias não fique muito difícil de conseguir o aluguer :-)

Casas da Audiencia is an exclusive village of around 250 large villa and houses, situated between the towns of Altura and Monte Gordo, and next to the well known Praia Verde Condominium. The area boasts two superb restaurants on the beach itself, and a cafe/bar. In addition, there is a local shop, bakery and pastelaria that sells all the basics, plus some superb Portuguese pastries! The beach is 3 minutes walk from the villa, through pine trees,and the beautiful unspoilt sandy beach stretches for miles, Nearby is the Ria Formosa, a nature reserve stretching 67 kilometres along the coast to Faro. The villa backs onto a National Park, full of pine trees surrounding a beautiful unspoilt lake that is a magnet for wild birds and ducks. It is excellent for walking and cycling in. The villa is within five minutes drive of several top golf courses, including the newly opened Jack Nicklaus course at Monte Rei and the Ballesteros course at Quinta do Vale.
