Really Lovely Huge Villa!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a wonderful two weeks at Villa Picota.

We were a group of 13 made up of three families and had loads of space in this huge villa. The Villa itself is beautiful and had everything we needed. Very spacious comfy rooms upstairs and down, nice shower rooms and fully fitted kitchens at both ends of the villa perfect for our large group. Lovely dining room at one end if you wanted to eat inside or a large table outside if you didn’t. The outside BBQ was good to use when we didn’t go out and there was a beer chiller in the BBQ/pool area too and electric for our music. Great pool with lots of space around for us and all our sunbeds.

The manager, a lady called Louley was really helpful and couldn’t do enough for us she even had Wifi put in for when we got there which was brilliant for our younger ones and their phones!!

The villa is ideal if you want a laid back holiday away from everything but then only a short drive to the busy parts of the Algarve.

The surrounding area was quite rural not many other villas about as villa Picota is up in the mountain so you definitely need a car. But it only took ten minutes to get into the main town of Tavira Tavira town had lots of restaurants and bars and there was a market and live music almost every night in the town square when we were there. There were three supermarkets (Aldi, Lidl and Pingo) ten minutes away by car all of which had everything you would need.

The nearest beach Isla Tavira was reached by ferry ( two euros erturn) and the beach was beautiful and sunbeds were available if you wanted them. There were also restaurants and bars. We also went to Altura beach about 30 minutes away, more golden sand and banana boats, pedalos and jet skis.

We had never been to this part of the Algarve before but thought Tavira was lovely. It is close to the Spanish border so we had a day trip to Spain, but also not far from the attractions just past Faro like Aqualand which was a great day out (try and get a 2 for 1 flyer!).

All in all we had a wonderful time and would go back again to this part of the Algarve and would highly recommend a holiday in Villa Picota.
