Tavira Town House Rental Photos and Description
You can not help but enjoy yourself
Our lovingly restored guest house has been converted into individually styled apartments and rooms - all en-suite and with their own patios. Local materials have been used where possible and our use of solar power and reed beds for the purpose of water management ensure that we do our best to promote natural living. Positioned in the center of the green Asseca valley and it's own neat garden, the farmhouse overlooks orange groves, olive trees & the bamboo lined river that flows into Tavira.
The large, self-catering kitchen and barbecue areas around the pool are perfect for large groups or individuals to enjoy the freedom of home style catering or late night parties while the free pool and table tennis table is where large and small kids can have their own fun! The plentiful, private outdoor space is where you can bask in the warm sunshine of the day or sit under an endless sky of stars at night and is the perfect place to relax and simply enjoy life.

About Marc Toole
I am English/American born in Hong Kong, grew up there, Japan and Spain. my wife Carol is from England. I spent 14 years rebuilding the old 150 year old farm house into our ecological guest house it is today. Ecological because we used all natural products in it's construction and energy efficient and low impact systems. My two larger children went all through school here in Tavira and Ruby our little 4 year old will do the same, growing up multilingual. We are easy-going and life-loving people, and this outlook is projected onto our Guest house. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do.
Marc Toole purchased this house in 1995
Why Marc Toole chose Tavira Town
I chose Portugal in 1995 because it had just joined the EU, because I love the South of Europe, because it was unspoiled and has a lovely countryside and because the prevailing winds mostly come off the Atlantic so any industrial and noxious disaster in Europe would probably blow away from us.
I chose Tavira, because it was, without a shadow of doubt, the nicest town on the Algarve and still is and because it is on river that is always full of water (not always the case in the south) and because the town is located on a stretch of coast called the 'Natural Park of the Ria Formosa' that is ecologically protected because of it's abundance of wildlife so it is improbable that the area will ever be over developed by mass tourism that has partially ruined other coastlines around the world. After 17 years of living here, I can happily say that my choice was the right one as the whole coast, with it's inland waterways an immaculate beaches are still beatuful.
What makes this house unique
Over fourty kilometers of beaches and inland waterways giving busy stretches for the gregarious and quiet stretches for the seekers of quiet. A green hilly inland with a myriad of little towns and hidden spots and above all a massive range of restaurants and bars offering a good spectrum of local, simple foods like grilled fish and octopus to higher
