Locality:-: The beautiful and ancient town of Tavira is the main local area of activity, it has many bars, restaurants, cafes and shops. Tavira still remains unspoilt and is not 'too touristy'

The restaurants in Tavira are of a very high standard and, offer a variety of cuisines from, the local dishes 'like Mama makes' to more western European dishes, obviously there are the highest quality fish restaurants here too.

The nearby fishing Villages of Cabanas and, our favourite- Santa Luzia also offer a good alternatives to Tavira, with fantastic choices of bars and restaurants, Santa Luzia is an absolute must do night out!(15 euros taxi from villa)

There is a water park at Loule, and there is Zoomarine at Guia, this is a fantastic day out for the whole family with, dolphin and seal shows to delight everyone, there is also falconry and, many birds and animals in fantastic surroundings.

The Historic City of Seville is approx 2 hrs drive along the A22 Motorway, well worth a visit.

Special Interest:-: This area is right in the Heart of The Ria Formosa Nature reserve, an area of Marsh and Wetlands, the Lagoons are full of fish and wildlife.

Beaches here are some of the best Beaches in the World, Soft White Sand gently sloping into the Ocean, Most are Island Beaches that can be easily reached by small cheap Ferries or, Water Taxis, this adds to the Romantic feel of this area by providing a cooling little lagoon trip to and from the Beautiful Beaches.

Bird watching here is very popular with many rare, Native and, Migratory Birds.

The area is also home to many rare plant species such as Orchids etc.

FANTASTIC VILLA

  • 5 of 5
What a fantastic villa, we have been visiting the Eastern Algarve for the last 11 years and this is by far the best villa we have stayed in. It was well equipped, clean and in a great rural location, but still within easy reach of Tavira and many other lovely towns. We arrived fairly late and was met by Paula who was friendly, welcoming and told us what was going on locally over the Easter holidays. Apart from the odd cloudy morning and a night of heavy rain the weather was very warm, mid 20's, so we made good use of the sun loungers and 3 out of the four of us went in the pool daily. The visitors book lists some great local restaurants and we had a couple of great meals. Thanks for sharing your wonderful villa with us, I have no doubt we will be back.

VERY SPACIOUS, WITH GREAT OUTDOOR SPACE.

  • 5 of 5
Thanks to Paul the owner, we had 6 wonderful weeks in the villa, with its spacious accommodation and generous outside space including the pool. The villa is well equipped especially in the kitchen where we were able to cook many meals and eat at the dining table or outside by the pool.
We had breakfast daily on the verandah catching the early sun it was hard to realise this was late February, what could be better!
The villa is configured for winter stays, the bedding was wonderful with thick duvets,as the February nights can be clear and cold, plus mobile heaters to provide background warmth.
Also there is a log burner in the living room which is very efficient and quickly warms the cool evenings, for an enjoyable evening reading, and preparing for the next adventure.
The support provided by the local manager was first class with speedy response to all concerns be they things like blown light bulbs, which can happen anytime, or asking again to use a piece of equipment. Always courteous and enthusiastic. Also his knowledge of the area was most useful to help us make the most of our stay.
The villa set in two acres is just 4 kms from Tavira with its many bars and restaurants, and the whole of the National Park to explore.
This is a great base for bird watching, storks are nesting in and easy to photograph in Tavira, Faro and a little further afield in
MartinLongo. The Rio Formosa sits on migration paths for many birds especially waders, so many house of fun by the saltpans in Tavira looking for flamingos, spoonbills etc.
There is so much to see on the doorstep of the villa, its also worth considering trips to the Alentejo especially Mertola.
Interestingly we only saw orchids in the garden of the villa! We found two species the mirror orchid and the yellow bee orchid in large numbers amongst the trees and shrubs, a real find.
I would certain return to the villa for future holidays as it has a real home from home feel, and allows easy access to the whole of the Algarve.
My brother joined us for 12 days during our stay and really fell in love with it and the area, and is keen to return himself.
I can confidently recommend this villa to anyone looking for a holiday in Tavira, you will certainly have a great time.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review, Its great to see that the villa can be enjoyed even in February! I also had no idea we had such exotic Orchids in the villa grounds, amazing !! We look forward to seeing you again soon..

EXCELLENT

  • 5 of 5
The villa is very bright and comfortable. It is surrounded by gardens. A very pleasant walk down th lane to the little shop. We found it very peaceful and relaxing. it is not very far from major supermarkets in Tavira. We know this area well and often visit Olhau for shopping and lunch.we would recommend this place to everyone.

TERRIFIC VILLA IN GORGEOUS SURROUNDINGS.

  • 5 of 5
Location: I wouldn't say remote but definitely 'off the beaten track. It is secluded and surrounded by gardens, fields, orange groves, trees and slightly elevated so the Atlantic can be seen in the distance. Ideal for a relaxing holiday. A car is a necessity although the town of Tavira, with three decent supermarkets (Aldi, Lidl and Continente) is only a short five minute drive away. A drive inland takes you into some fabulously hilly scenery with breathtaking views.
Accommodation: Exactly as the pictures show. Bedrooms - Comfortable beds, plenty of storage, hairdryer (for those lucky enough to still have hair).
Bathrooms - Spotlessly clean with limitless hot water.
Lounge - Large comfortable sofas and cushions and a real log burner for those chilly February nights.
Kitchen - everything you need and a few things you probably don't, a full kitchen that you can cook a proper meal in.
Outside: Good size pool (not heated) which would no doubt be a very welcome in the summer months. Tends to shrink your assets in mid Feb. Lots of outdoor furniture and tables for al fresco dining and lounging.

Paul, the owner, and Alan, the property manager, are very helpful and easy to deal with and we had no problems at all during our stay.

The weather was sunny every day with a temperature of 16 or 17 Celsius and we even got a bit of a tan. Chilly at night as you'd expect.

All in all a very enjoyable and relaxing way to spend a spare week in February which we definitely recommend.

BLISSFUL VILLA, PERFECT GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely delightful villa in beautiful grounds. We've been booking villas for over 5 years now and this was by far our favourite yet! Privacy with a capital P!! Not overlooked in any way! We've already booked to return later in the summer with 4 adult friends!!
Stylish and comfortable. So lucky to have such great weather in February, but the villa was equally as cosy when we had a night inside watching a movie. Downstairs bedroom and bathroom gave us great privacy from the children who loved having their own rooms upstairs! Everything we were hoping for. Supermarkets only a 10 minute drive away with local store only 5minutes down the road. Tavira old town is a must visit, with a walk over the old roman bridge into the cobbled streets.

BOUGAINVILLIA IN NOVEMBER

  • 4 of 5
We enjoyed our week at Bougainvillia and found it as comfortable as described.The 2 complete bathrooms made it ideal for sharing with another couple.We were fortunate to experience lovely warm days in November and enjoyed having breakfast on the sunny patio.Our only complaint was with dealing with the bank transfer system for International transfers.It became a complete hassle and we ended up being charged on both ends .It finally cost us 52 Euros to receive our damage deposit refund.There must be a simpler and more cost effective way for International renters.

Owner's Response: Thank-you for your kind comments re the villa and were pleased you got some good sunshine even in November!
International payments outside of Europe seem to incur heavier charges than most. The vast majority of countries use the IBAN system for international transfers however unfortunately in this case Canada is one country which does not. As far as I have been advised by my bank this can in some instances mean unnecessarily and varying high bank charges when sending or receiving international funds outside Europe, this also of course depends upon your own bank policy for international transfer charges. Clients should check with their bank and ask specifically about charges before sending or receiving funds in foreign currency so that they are aware exactly of the amount charged or deducted. As we all know Banks will take any opportunity to line their own pockets at the expense of others so please get firm charge costs before making any payments. I think as this client will concur the initial funds sent for the deposit were also significantly short so its not always as straight forward as it seems.
