COUNTRY COTTAGE WITH A BEAUTIFUL NATURAL POOL IN AN ORCHARD / STA. LUZIA/TAVIRA

Santa Luzia Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Natural pool, Pool for kids, Orchad, 4 + 1 Sleeping rooms

“Quinta dos Trigos”- ideally situated within “la Ria Formosa” natural reserve between Santa Luzia and Tavira in the Western Algarve (and well away from the crowds), is, above all, a special and unique place. The 250m2 natural swimming pool blends harmoniously with its surroundings, is a real “biotope” and without doubt a major attraction of the property that will invite you to swim in its clear waters free from all chemical products (it is cleaned naturally). Once refreshed, you could simply watch the dragonflies dancing over the water lilies or you may choose to relax in the hammock shaded by the 100 year old olive trees listening to the waterfalls and the birdsong that fills the air. Otherwise you may prefer to stroll in the orchard and help yourself, depending on the season, to oranges, figs, apricots and many other exotic fruits.

This old farmhouse, recently fully renovated with eco materials, has lots of charm with its traditional high wood and cane ceiling. With 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms (one of them outside) it is ideal for 8 people, but does have 4 extra beds that can be used (for occupation exceeding 8 persons, an extra € 150/per person/week is charged). It is also particularly well laid out to accommodate 2 families who wish to spend their holidays together.

Fully equipped, with many high quality appliances, the house offers all comforts. In summer, and for most of spring and autumn, you can barbecue on the terrace. In winter, the wall-radiators and wood-burning stove allow you to spend cosy evenings.

Several bikes are at your disposal - free of charge.

A WiFi Internet connection is available, on demand, for € 20 per week.

SÉJOUR DE RÊVE

  • 5 of 5
Paradis sur Terre. Jardin magnifique, piscine idyllique au fond du jardin; la maison a beaucoup de charme et l'agencement intérieur est parfait pour une à deux familles. Nos enfants ne voulaient même plus aller à la magnifique plage toute proche ! Nous reviendrons.

FANTASTIC VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We have just spent a fantastic week at the Quinta - two families of four adults and four kids, with grandparents staying nearby and visiting daily. (Al fresco dining for 10 posing no difficulty) The 'Caretakers' of the property were very welcoming, extremely helpful and on hand if needed. The Quinta is an oasis of calm and tranquility (even with nearby railway crossing and sunset frog chorus!) Situated just off the beaten track, with it's own orange/lemon orchard, a mature garden and a variety of plantlife, it offers both welcome shade as well as lots of sunbathing spots. The house itself has been beautifully renovated, tastefully decorated and is plenty spacious for eight.(The kitchen is also well above average in terms of equipment, utensils etc ..) The smaller pool beside the house is great (especially for younger kids) and the 'natural' pool at the far end of the orchard - complete with mini waterfall, frogs, fish, dragonflies, birds and your genuine lily pads - just has to be experienced first hand ..... Oh - and there's the trampoline, the table tennis table, the table football ... not to mention the hammocks, sunloungers, bicycles, pool/beach toys, chess board, wood stove (unused, but still a feature!) and no less than three outside 'deluge' showers ....Need I continue ?? My 7 year old launched himself into O/J production (aforementioned orchard) and the holiday mantra of "train coming!" is firmly lodged in my memory along with numerous other delightful memories ... we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and haven't relaxed like that for too long !! Finally, Tavira is the local town easily accessible by bike or on foot and is a lovely, laid back place to while away a few hours pottering about visiting cafes, churches and generally doing some more chilling a little more ! PS The municipal market and camera obscura a must in my book .. Enjoy !!

TRAUM AUFENTHALT

  • 5 of 5
Nach längerer Zeit wieder einmal in Portugal, haben mein Mann und ich den Aufenthalt in der Quinta dos Trigos sehr geschätzt. Das liebevoll renovierte Haus im Algarve-Stil mit seinem grossen Obstgarten und den beiden Schwimmbädern bietet wundervolle Erholung. Es beginnt schon mit dem Empfang durch die „Hausgeister“, die mit der Pflege der Anlage betraut sind. Dann fallen einem die geschmackvolle Einrichtung und die grosse Sauberkeit des Hauses und seiner Umgebung auf. Wer’s gern gemütlich hat, hat so manches schattige Plätzchen zum Lesen oder Träumen, aber auch wer ohne Fernsehen nicht auf seine Rechnung kommt, kommt nicht zu kurz. Und wen es trotz der zahlreichen kleinen, nicht sehr kostspieligen Restaurants mit den schmackhaften portugiesischen Gerichten in der näheren Umgebung dennoch in die Küche treibt, hat vom Turboschäler bis zum Induktionsherd wirklich alles zur Hand! Wir können die Quinta dos Trigos nur weiterempfehlen.

WONDERFUL TIME !!!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay in the Algarves in large part due to this house rental and its lovely surroundings. The Quinta is a recently renovated farm with an orange orchard as a backyard. We were 8 in all at the Quinta, 2 couples plus four kids, and never felt at a loss for space. The huge natural swimming pool was a godsend as the kids couldn’t get enough, so I managed to get quite a bit of reading, snoozing and jogging done during our stay (lots of back roads suited for nice runs). We also took advantage of the outside terrace in the evenings for some quite memorable seafood BBQs. I highly recommend the place.

“Quinta dos Trigos” is located on the edge of Tavira in the Santa Luiza countryside, along a quiet unsealed road (easily passable for cars), 500m from “Ecovia” the 214 kilometres bike path of the Algarve which joins Sagres to Vila Real de Santo António and which is almost free of motorised traffic. Access to the property is easy, only 1km from Tavira railway station (the line passes close to the house) and 5mins from an interchange on the A22 motorway which is 30mins from Faro airport.

Tavira is reputed to be the nicest town in the Algarve. It is renouned for its 38 historic churches and its four beautiful bridges spanning the Gilao river which divides the town and allows for spectacular riverside views of the medieval town and river life. You will also be charmed by the nearby fishing village of Santa Luiza with its many restaurants.

The magnificent beaches of the Ile de Tavira, described by Lonely Planet’s “Travel with Children” Guide to be one of the world’s top ten beaches for families with children, are only 2 km away, and are easily accessible by car or bike. Even in August this magnificent beach is relatively uncrowded. At Barril Beach children love the miniature railway that shuttles back and forth across the nature reserve to the beach of Barril. There is a good self service restaurant and cafe. A few minutes to either direction you will find miles of beautiful, peaceful, dune fringed beaches.

Other leisure opportunities nearby include sailing and horse riding and the area is an ornithological paradise. Benamor Golf Course is literally a couple of minutes away. Other courses within a very short drive from the villa include Quinta da

Ria/Quinta de Cima and Castro Marim, as well as the exclusive Monte Rei course designed by Jack Nicklaus. Alternatively, there are a number of courses just over the border in Spain. The Spanish border is 30km away and it is easy to drive to Seville in 90 minutes. The Western Algarve (Sagres and Cabo São Vincente) is also easily reached by car in 90 minutes.

We are happy to provide you with directions from the station or airport if you need them.
