Santo Estevao Villa Rental Photos and Description

Luxury self catering 6 double bedroom villa 3 bathrooms plunge pool in Algarve

Extremely large and spacious traditional style Portuguese luxury villa with 6 double bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms. 5 min drive from the center of Tavira. The villa has a fully equipped 25 square meter kitchen dinner.

Fully equipped throughout including bed linen and towels. It is well maintained and decorated to a high standard and only a 5- 7 minute drive to the medieval town of Tavira, known as the 'Jewel of the Algarve' and a few minutes to the sleepy village of Santo Estevao. The beaches on the Algarve are all 'blue flag' , sandy and exceptionally clean. An Ideal location for 'serious' golfers or those just practising with Faro airport just 20 miles away. The villa is a 7 minute drive to Tavira situated on a B road between Tavria and village of Santo Estevao . Why not 'snuggle up' in the winter months to a cozy log burning fire for a romantic Xmas

Fab family villa very close to the local town.

This Villa was very quaint and very spacious. The only one thing it lacked was air conditioning however there was a fan provided in each room which really helped. There were endless amount of towels provided the kitchen had all of our needs and was well equipped. The location from the Tavira was perfect it cost €7.00 in a taxi early evening and €10.00 return later in the evening. You could not walk as the road into Tavira was a motorway. We hired in a local chef really recommend you do this such a treat.

Fantastic luxury villa.

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 31, 2012
  • Stayed: Sep 2012
Twenty minutes from Faro airport this beautiful villa was easy to locate especially with the helpful directions supplied when booking.
Greeted by friendly staff on arrival, the villa comprising of six good size double bedrooms was spotlessly clean and offered all amenities from luxury fitted kitchen with modern facilities, hair dryer, iron, iron board, kids games, dvd's, the list goes on.
Outside the villa is set in large well kept grounds complete with large patio area with plenty of sun loungers, beautiful pool and upper dining terrace.
The town of Tavira is 10 minutes from the villa and provides all your shopping needs as well as luxury bars and restaurants, not to mention access to some of the most gorgeous beaches I have ever seen.
Don't worry if you are feeling lazy, a fantastic chef is on hand at reasonable rates should you wish to be privately dined, he is certainly worth a call. (he even does the washing up!)
This is our third visit to this villa and we will certainly be back, whatever your needs I would certainly recommend this villa as a place to stay.
Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful review. I'm so glad that you and your fellow guests had such a wonderful time. Susan Austin

This house have so much, almost everything you need for a holiday. Everything functioned so well. Great outside area. And Tavira was a very cosy town. Easy to travel along the Algarve coast. Many thing to discover. The houseowner has made a book with a lot of information about the house, Tavira and the area around. Easy to come here for the first time.

We stayed in this well equipment villa for two weeks and could not fault anything,your told from the outset that there is no A/C so there are lots of fans around.
The villa is a 20 mins drive from Faro airport and just off the A22 motorway.
Tavira has some of the most stunning beaches that we have seen in Portugal(locals use them)
Supermarkets are about a ten minute drive.

Superb Villa - Great Location

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 21, 2010
  • Stayed: Apr 2010
I stayed in this villa earlier this year and want to say how much all of our group enjoyed staying there. It is in a good location, only a short car or taxi ride into town or to the Nature Reserve and the beach. The town of Tavira is charming and full of character with lot of good shops, bars and restaurants but, back to the villa. Casal de San Antonio is a beautiful place to stay. It is a traditional villa that has been lovingly restored by the owner keeping many of the original features but including modern facilities. The garden, which surounds the property, is charming and full of all kinds of fruit trees so you can, literally, pick a lemon to squeeze into your gin and tonic! Although we did not have children with us, it is an ideal place to bring a young family with a very safe pool and many toys and games for the pool and pool-deck area. There is a large kitchen and BBQ area area leading to the pool terace that is ideal for cooking and dining al fresco. All-in-all, a remarkable place that we will definately be visiting again and very good value for money.

'Jewel of the Algarve' is the other name for Tavira which is considered by many to be the most beautiful town in the Algarve and is only a short distance from the villa (5km). Here you can find everything you need, restaurants, chemists, bars and general stores as well as friendly people. Horse riding lessons for all ages and abilities just 15 mins drive. For the more adventurous why not try Lisbon or Seville only 2 hours drive away! Ideal location for golfers, some courses only 10 minutes drive away. The beaches are all Blue Flag, exceptionally clean and within easy reach of the villa which include Tavira (5 miles), Cabarias (8 miles) and Manta Rola (14 miles). Why not take a ferry trip across Rio Formosa to the islands or one of the boat trips on the Rio Guadiano? Or for those of you with children, there are the 'Water Parks' at Vilamoura which is only a 40 minute drive away. Better still, take it easy and relax around the spacious villa just taking in the glorious surroundings

Golf: This is Europe's foremost winter golfing destination.

The east Algarve has formed its own association to promote the region as a 'new tourist' destination. This part of the Algarve now has four 18 hole golf courses (and one 9 hole) with more under construction - and apart from emphasising these, the association wants to draw attention to the completely different undeveloped atmosphere.

BENAMOR was the first 18 hole course to open in this area and lies between the Tavira coast and uplands of Serra do Caldeirao. It offers views both southward to Atlantic Ocean and northward to the hinterlands.

On the QUINTA DA RIA estate are another two 18 hole par 72 courses near the coast between Tavira and Monte Gordo.

The stunning layout of QUINTA DE CIMA is a series of lakes connected by a stream skilfully incorporated as an added challenge to players. Again this is a 18 hole par 72 course. All these courses are just a short drive from the villa.
