Guestbook comments from the owner
I think I've actually found paradise on earth. The views are beautiful, the house and pool stunning and the range of activities available (tennis, ping pong, pool table, walks, beach, swimming pool) second to none. The local restaurants gave us plenty of choice - particularly delicious fish - and a pretty square in town gave us ample opportunity to sit, drink coffee or a beer and people watch.

(The almond tart from the local bakery is heaven.) Definitely going again.

A LITTLE PIECE OF HEAVEN...

  • 5 of 5
It will be difficult to contain all the things I would want to say about this villa in only 2500 words, but here goes...the overall impression of this villa is that it is a home that is dearly loved and has been given all the best care and attention to both it's tasteful internal decor and also it's beautiful mature gardens - this is not just an ordinary rental property! Internally, the rooms are decorated to a very high standard and the bedrooms are large, airy and comfortable with the upstairs ones having amazing views over the Ria Formosa. The kitchen is extremely well stocked and a cook's dream!! There must be every kind of electrical kitchen device, alongside every size of pan and cooking/baking utensil...I love to bake and was able to quite happily bake brownies and chocolate fondants. However, if cooking isn't your thing, then the lovely Leonor (the maid) will cook for you for a small fee -though we didn't use this service. Outside there is a brick BBQ, which we gave plenty of use, and an outside wood burning oven which Alvaro (the property manager) is a expert with, and happily built us the fire and provided excellent cooking instructions and advice. The pool area is amazing. The pool itself is huge compared the usual villa sizes, and whilst being initially put off by it being saltwater, I am now a total convert! It doesn't hurt your eyes, or dry your skin like chlorine, and the water is somehow softer, so, along with the pool heating, swimming in it felt like being gently caressed! The seating area around the pool is perfect for your morning coffee as the sun is rising to its full strength, then again on the other side, in the evening with a glass of wine or G&T as the heat of the day cools ready for the evening. The tennis court was well used by husbands and children, and I'm told it had a lovely smooth surface for the perfect bounce! The local area is un-commercialised and the 'real' Portugal. We particularly liked Tavira and there is a small supermarket at Fuseta with a great meat counter. I'm running out of space, so I need to end on a final note to say that the thing that impressed us the most was the warm and kind welcome we received from June, both through her helpful emails with all the recommendations and the food (especially the beautiful almond cake), soft drinks, wine and flowers that were left for us when we arrived. From both families, we would really like to say "Thank-you"...as you promised, all our stresses melted away

OUR 50TH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY

  • 5 of 5
We had decided to spend our 50th wedding anniversary with our family, son and daughter and their familes in Portugal,( 11 of us ) We had spent time in the Algarve many years ago when our children were small. We decided on Casa Dos Zerfiros, we could not have chosen anything better. The villa was perfect in every way, nicer even than what you see on the picture. The pool was a great success with the children and the adults, it got a lot of use from morning until night. everyone loved to swim in the evening with all the lights on in the pool ,it was really beautiful. The tennis court was a good way to exercise that extra weight after all the wonderful food. the games room was also a big hit with everything you needed to keep the kids happy...

We had a lovely chicken dinner waiting for us upon arrival, cooked by Sandra , who also cooked for us through the week. Sandra introduced us to authentic portuguese meals , simply delicious!
Alvaro was a great help in explaining where to go to see the towns beaches shopping, and keeping the pool just right.

Everything was close by in the little town , restaruants ,shopping, boats to go to a island beach.
I would highly recommend this beautiful Villa (as i have done to our friends), it is a perfect home to stay in, lovely lush gardens great pool, great service, peaceful and tranquil, and yet close to all amenities.The view is extrordinary.
The owner takes great pride in her home , and you can see , with all the that the home has to offer,
We will definitly see you all again soon.

AMAZING AND RELAXING STAY IN THE ALGARVE

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed at Casa dos Zefiros as a three-generation family of eight with two small children, looking to spend a quiet, relaxing and comfortable week together.

Casa dos Zefiros was perfect! The property is very well maintained and offers plenty of (indoor and outdoor) space, even for a party of ten adults. The gardens are beautiful and the view over the Rio Formosa protected area to the beach and the ocean are stunning. The pool has a perfect size (seriously consider having it heated especially outside the summer as, due to its size, it takes time to heat up). For the more active, there are plenty of things to do around the villa, including tennis, table tennis and pool billiards.

The location of the villa is quiet, but still only 2 km or so from Fuseta village, with the last 500m or so via an unpaved road (no problem at all though). There are plenty of things to do in the area, including trips to Tavira, Olhao and Armona Island. Western Algarve towns such as Portimao and Albufeira are also within each reach, as is Spain.

The service that comes with the villa is also fantastic. We were prepared a complementary welcome lunch on arrival (enough to feed a small army). In addition, the villa was well-stocked with all basic necessities, including water, wine, beer and other basic groceries. There is a very friendly maid service four mornings a week to keep the place tidy. In addition, property manager Alvaro drops by every now and then to make sure that everything is in order.

I couldn't recommend Casa dos Zefiros more highly for any family that is looking for a place to spend one or a few weeks together to relax and do a bit of sightseeing. We will in any event definitely be back!

CASA DOS ZAFIROS

  • 5 of 5
It is unusual to arrive at a holiday property and witness more than you see in the adverts - this is more than true for this villa.
Our week's holiday - with three generations of the family -started immediatel.y.
Five grandchildren jumped in the heated pool and all the stresses of airports and travel vanished within seconds. Chilled wine and beer accompanied a hot meal prepared by head maid Leonora and the adults soon followed the youngsters into holiday mood.
We all agreed the facilities, equipment and general warmth of the villa gave us all a superb week. Enough cutlery, crockery and pots and pans to open a restaurant.
Our eldest son even baked cakes for his brother's birthday!!
Leonora cooked for us twice more at a reasonable cost and it was delicious and local - ideal as we couldn't leave the youngsters.
The area is lovely - unspoilt and the real Portugal - not the concrete jungle of Central Algarve and this is reflected in the local shops and markets
We bought lots of fish and seafood from the local market and used the local butcher - all reasonably priced and of good quality.
As a family we would have no hesitation in recommending this villa - it was perfect in every way - and all we can say about the view is - simply stunning

SUPERB

  • 5 of 5
Have just spent the most enjoyable week in this superb villa which lacks for nothing. The view across the lagoon is breathtaking and the garden is extremely well laid out with ample space for relaxation. The external facilities cater for all tastes and we thoroughly enjoyed using the pizza oven and the bbq area. The heated outdoor pool was large enough for all of us to enjoy simultaneously and for the more energetic, the tennis court provided some welcome competition. Dining al fresco in the evenings was a real pleasure and the facilities were more than capable of accommodating our party of 10. The kitchen area is extensive and very well equipped with all imaginable cookery utensils and provisions. We were delighted with the meal that the maid Leanora had left for us as we arrived too late to fend for ourselves, and even more pleased with the superb meal she cooked for us on our final evening at a very reasonable price. Our only regret is that we didn't ask her to cook for us earlier in the week! The local manager Alvaro could not have been more helpful and made us feel at home immediately. The village of Fuseta is just a short hop away and has all the facilities you need for your holiday. I would certainly recommend a visit to the local provisions market where excellent quality fresh produce is readily available. Fresh meat is also of excellent quality and we tended to use the local butchers. We were all very impressed with the villa and all its facilities and would have no hesitation in recommending it to others. You will not be disappointed.

It's difficult not to use the superlatives that have been hijacked & thereby devalued by Estate agents but this delightful villa is truly luxurious. As well as the high quality of it's accommodation and facilities, it has the ultimate luxury of a beautiful & peaceful setting. A profusion of palm trees & a proper sized swimming pool are the icing on this fabulous cake.
Lots to do at the villa,we like to cook and found every pot pan & utensil we could possibly need. Shopping in Fuseta for local produce was great fun & provided us with all we needed.. There's a full sized tennis court in excellent condition and a games room with pool & much else. to amuse the acti.
For the less active, we much enjoyed the birdwatching & saw many species not found at home - Hoopoe's & Bee-eaters were particularly colourful.
Leonore will cook for you by arrangement - what a treat that was!
Lots to do in the area too including many excellent restaurants - Obote's in Olhao
was great fun, the prawn kebab was truly spectacular - you'll see what we mean when it arrives at the table!
It's perfectly clear that the owners love this place with a passon and felt truly privileged to share it & can't wait to return.

Born of sea and sand, Fuseta is a fishing village with traditional square shared houses just a 30 minute drive from Faro airport. It offers, not only a golden sandy beach on the lagoon with warm waters in which to swim and snorkel, but also mile upon mile of white sand on the island of Armona, just a few minutes away by ferryboat. Locally caught and barbecued seafood, clams cooked in the traditional Portuguese way, beef cooked on a hot stone and monkfish kebabs are just a few of the many delicious dishes served in local restaurants all within easy walking distance of the apartment.

Golf: 20 minutes drive from the villa are the spectacular sister courses of Quinta da Cima and Quinta da Ria. Whilst they sit comfortably with each other, and enjoy the same clubhouse and management, each course has its own distinctive character. Quinta da Cima is the longer at nearly 7000m. It is a championship styled course. Its undulating terrain, constant surprises, (the 14th and 15th through the orange groves), trying to avoid the charming (but ball enticing) cascading streams, not to mention the 2 lakes that are waiting to capture your score on the last three holes, make this a unique golfing experience. Quinta da Ria, although a little shorter, is perhaps more stunningly beautiful, with some of the holes playing above the Ria Formosa lagoon. Man-made lakes keep the golfer’s interest focused. Within easy driving distance are Quinta do Lago, Vale do Lobo, San Lorenzo, Pinheiros Altos, Vallamoura, Villa Sol, and many other.
