Tavira Town Villa Rental Photos and Description
Casa Funda is a large, elegant villa with private pool and terraces sitting on 6000sq metres (roughly 1 acre) of grounds with olive, carob orange and lemon trees, bougainvillea, palms and yuccas. The property has 5 bedrooms, ALL WITH AIR CONDITIONING ( a small charge will be made if used extensively), one of which is a studio flat complete with second kitchen and bathroom, attached to the property but with separate entrance. It is not let separately. In the main house there is a large drawing room with satellite flat screen TV, patio doors to terraces and pool, separate dining room for 12 also with patio doors, fully fitted kitchen, master bedroom w/ queen sized bed, patio doors + en suite bathroom , family bedroom with double and single bed and en suite bathroom and two twin bedded rooms. There is a third bathroom downstairs. The studio flat, with its own terrace and distant views to the sea, has a large bathroom, a fitted kitchen and can accommodate up to 4 people.
Two years ago we embarked on a huge landscaping program and created a second,large, terraced dining area away from the pool and the noise for reading, siestas, etc. We have further landscaped the garden, adding a fountain/pond feature in local stone, with goldfish, and planting more fruit trees, bamboo, bougainvillea etc. There is a once-a-week gardening service and the pool is serviced twice a week.
We have already upgraded the house by installing air conditioning, a huge flat screen satellite television, internet access upon request, new curtains etc. In the Spring of 2011 all fittings in all 4 bathrooms were renewed..

About Ursula Higham
My husband, I and our teenage son rented this property in 2008, fell in love with it and bought it in 2009. We live near Chipping Norton in Oxfordshire. My husband, who died very unexpectedly in September 2012, was an English lawyer and I am half German, half Hungarian,, born in NY and fluent in German, English and French. My son has just finished Leeds University and we have a much loved English cocker spaniel. I try and spend most of June and two weeks in September at Casa Funda, mostly taking friends down with me.

Why Ursula Higham chose Tavira Town
Having spent a week in this house on a 'last minute.com' type holiday, we so loved the house that we decided to buy it. It is generous, spacious and had, and hopefully has, a happy feel to it. It is also ideally located for Tavira and the beach...
What makes this villa unique
Its greatest benefit, and why we fell in love with it, is its design: there is a very large, generous drawing room AND dining room, with the bedrooms off these rooms on either side. In addition there is the separate, but attached, studio flat. So three families can be there without falling on top of each other. The two huge terraces also create a feeling of privacy.
We have always had a 5 star rating. One reviewer loved the house and gave it a 1, thinking that was the highest honour. Unfortunately she misunderstood the rating system, and her 1 instead of 5 reduced our average to 4!!! (if you read the reviews you will see!)
