FAZENDINHA AL : PERFECT FOR LARGE GROUPS OR SINGLE FAMILIES, NEAR TAVIRA

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.

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

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.

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

Lovely place

  • 5 of 5
We (LSTS) weren't on Fazendinha on holidays.. we were staying there for 20 days during an experiment of fish tracking. Even though the experiment took place in Olhão we did not mind driving everyday to Fazendinha because the facilities are just wonderfull. The living room was just perfect for our meetings and workgroup. The rooms are lovely, the kitchen is big enough to cook for the whole group (18 people). The swimming pool is very nice! Marc and Carol were always helpful, by helping with the cleaning, lending us tools for the repairs on our systems or by providing contacts to rent boats.
The staying in Fazendinha helped to reduce the stress and smooth the hard time we had working for the experiment.
I consider the place perfect for big groups. It is calm and countryside but just 5min by car to the Tavira center.
We hope to stay again in Fazendinha if we repeat the experiment next year!
:-)
Thank you for the nice time.

Joao, Experiment Coordinator.

Fabulous place

  • 5 of 5
Our first big family holiday abroad and it couldn't have been better. There was 18 of us including 3 grandchildren ages 4 and under. The bedrooms were clean and the decor in each was lovely. Everything you needed in the kitchen for a large family and 3 fridges. The garden was a pleasure to walk in. The pool was our main entertainment and we loved it especially our Grandson in the little pool. The only thing we would do different is hire a car as we had to get taxis to travel to Tavira,which is lovely town,for our shopping but that didn't spoil the fabulous holiday. Marc and Carol were very friendly and helpful and were there only if we needed them. We look forward to going again.

Fim de semana 5 estrelas *****

  • 5 of 5
Em nome de todo o grupo agradeço por nos ter recebido, pela maneira como fomos tratados e pelo fim de semana que nos proporcionaram. Pelo á vontade a que o Sr Marc nos deixou. Parabéns pelo bom gosto na construção de todo espaço. A Quinta é espectacular. Todos nós ficámos encantados com o espaço e com a qualidade das vossas instalações. Foi um fim de semana fantástico que soube a pouco... A nossa vontade era de ficar mais uma semana, mas iremos regressar com toda a certeza. É uma despedida com o sentimento de um dia voltar. Recomendo a toda as pessoas.

Obrigado por tudo e muitas felicidades para o Sr. Marc e sua familia.

Perfect place

  • 5 of 5
Staying in Fazendinha was probably one of the best experiences of our trip to Algarve.
The place is great and owners really care about their guests. I definitely recommend this place!
Our family stayed there on February 2013. It was a good place for a 2 year old. Safe and interesting. Horses over the street, chicken, dog, cat, kids pool.
Rooms are very good and the bathroom was large and comfortable with good equipment. Kitchen was also well equipped with high quality items.
It is 5 minute drive from Tavira centre and place is surrounded by orange gardens and small hills.

Owner's Response: A big thank you to a kind and interesting couple, a very cute and well behaved little boy and the honour of being our first Latvian guests!
It is always a pleasure to host people that have a love for life and are inquisitive about the country and customs they are in and are respectful to our house.
Hope to hear from you or see you some time again in the future!

ABSOLUTELY RECOMMENDED!!!!

  • 5 of 5
A great homely atmosphere, a lot of vegetation around the building. Pool, jacuzzi, right next to a place on the grill. There is a large room for spending time on TV, you can also play pool or table tennis. There is a bar and a kitchen where you can cook yourself.

We had a lovely room called "Vinho da Madeira '. Clean, tidy and cared for. Bathroom same.

We took breakfast, which were always on time, very easy, but it is the best. Outlet we had at 7.30, so at 5 in the morning we had to leave the building, yet breakfast waiting for us. We were very sorry that we did not have time to benefit.

Owner very nice and helpful. If someone wants to get a tour around, Marc can give advice on what, where and how.

We are happy to be back.

Close to the lovely town of Tavira.

I think the town of Tavira is the most authentically Portuguese & well preserved town on the Algarve. It's eclectic style combines history, preserved architecture & tradition with modern, cosmopolitan & funky trendiness. There really is something for everybody here. The key is it's geography. The strip of untouchable natural reserve 'Ria Formosa' that cuts a 100km path from the Spanish border to the West (Yuk!) Algarve with its salt flats & inland waterways has meant that vulgar tourism could not ruin the beachfront, so it evolved better. Buzzing Tavira Island & all the beaches are off the mainland apart from Manta Rota, a mere 15 minute drive from Fazendinha & are gorgeous.

Restaurants of all tastes are available, traditional Portuguese tascas & tavernas to international bars & restaurants of good taste. Large supermarkets, shopping centers, a huge local market, clubs, renowned golf courses, international cinemas, wine bars, gyms, fairs...etc etc are all unobtrusively present.

Marc

Other Activities: Kayaking, trekking, horse riding, water activities, fishing, paintball,

Golf: The Algarve is synonymous with golf, and you won't be disappointed with the facilities available locally to Tavira. Why not book a week of golf in advance?
