The room has a ceiling fan and there is also an open log fire (if your stay is in the colder winter months). Leading off of the terrace is a flight of stone steps that lead up onto the flat roof, a perfect area for watching the sunset over he hills and surrounding countryside, and after night fall enjoy some star gazing ( if you are really lucky you may even see a shooting star).

We are the Mollett family, and Casa Diana has been in our family for over 30 years. We live in London and although we love to spend as much time as possible at Casa Diana, unfortunately we don't get to visit it quite as much as we would like, due to school and work commitments. We particularly like to spend Christmas and new year at the house, as the days are normally warm and bright and the evenings cool enough to have a log fire. Heaven! ( Unfortunately we can't this year, so the house is available for rent).

Sarah Mollett purchased this villa in 2007

We have been holidaying in this area for so many years that we have local friends and an excellent support network. We are never happier than when we are in Tavira. We adore the local restaurants and also love to go to the market and buy the beautiful fresh local produce and cook at home. The house has a huge dining table, and many a big family meal has been enjoyed around it.

There are so many things that we love about Casa Diana, but if we had to choose some of our favourites they would be; sitting on the veranda at dusk with a glass of wine watching the swallows swooping in the garden, picking fresh fruit form the numerous trees in the garden, watching the shooting stars from the roof terrace, having a bbq with friends by the pool, and in winter relaxing in front of a log fire in the sitting room or the bar. And last but not least the tranquility of the house, all you can hear is the birdsong.

PERFECT FOR OUR REQUIREMENTS

  • 5 of 5
This villa was even better than the description. It is a very spacious with large bedrooms and bathrooms. Very well equipped to a high standard. We were blessed with good weather, and so enjoyed the lovely outside areas and pool. However, had we experienced poor weather the games room and TV areas may have had more use.
The surrounding area is superb. Lots to explore, great countryside and wildlife. Beaches are great, and the sea was warm and very clean - top rated.
I have already recommended this to other family members, and we would certainly go again.

HEAVEN ON EARTH

  • 5 of 5
i have visited casa diana several times over the past four or five years.
casa diana is filled with all the splendor and visual marvel of a holiday villa but retains all the personality and beauty of a home from home. this perfect balance of character is truly what makes this villa such a special destination to me.
the interior of the villa is designed in authentic portugese elegance, with spacious living areas and bedrooms filled with wonderful furniture and decorations. the kitchen provides the perfect setting for cooking up a storm of piri piri and further authentic (delicious) portugese cuisine, while the indoor and outdoor dining areas make the perfect table for a family or group of friends to sit around and enjoy good food, drink and company.
the garden and grounds of the villa are lavished with a fabulously maintained flowers, plants and tree's. the perfect environment for children to play in, or for adults to admire. the private pool area - where i personally spend most of my time - is spacious, comfortable and makes the perfect spot to catch the most of the portugese heat. the surrounding unspoiled towns are abundant with fantastic local restaurants and traditional cafes, serving delicious local produce - perfect for a night out.
i would thoroughly recommend casa diana to any holiday makers with a passion for portugese authenticity and truly beautiful surroundings. i hope to return there soon!

STUNNING

  • 5 of 5
My family and I have been to Casa Diana 6 times one of those times we spent 4 weeks there. I can honestly say we were never bored. The gardens are stunning with a friendly gardener who potters around keeping it looking beautiful. The are many outside setting areas so if you want peace you can get it. The villa is very spacious, while it offers 4 bed rooms one of the rooms is a family room so easily sleeps 8 people. Sitting on the terrace with a G and T after picking a fresh lemon from one of the trees, watching the sun go down is a must. The house keeper is a freindly lady who will do your ironing for extra euro's (A must in my book). We keep trying other villa's but Casa Diana calls us back......

JUST PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here during the month of August 2010 and everything was simply beautiful. The villa itself is spacious and nicely furnished, the garden and surroundings are picturesque; luscious fig and olive trees, colourful flowers and traditional decoration envelope the property. The pool area is great, with plenty of sun loungers and closely situated near the barbecue area for lovely poolside BBQs! The location is just lovely, lots of peace and quiet and close enough to the town with its delicious restaurants. The scenery combined with beautiful weather and relaxing atmosphere really made the holiday. Would 100% recommend to families, a group of friends or a couple for a romantic getaway.

BEAUTIFUL CASA DIANA

  • 5 of 5
The pictures on the website, whilst showing how beautiful the villa is, really do not do it justice as to size. Each room is furnished to a very high standard and all the facilities you could want are there.

The villa has a beautiful mature garden and borders onto an orange grove. Sitting on the front verandah with a drink in the evening, looking on to the garden, is a perfect setting to while away an hour or two.

Located on the outskirts of Santo Estevao near to the Roman town of Tavira, Casa Diana offers the perfect setting for exploring the unspoilt towns and beaches of the East Algarve. The villa itself is in the quaint hamlet of “Sinagoga” which is approximately a 2 minute drive to the charming village of Santo Estevao, with its pretty village square and beautiful church. There are a few small supermarkets and a traditional “Grill” restaurant, which is great value for money and serves very traditional Portuguese food. In the summer months there are also frequent festas(street festivals/parties) in the village square where you can experience a taste of the real Algarve.

The larger town of Tavira is also within easy reach, with its abundance of traditional fish restaurants and local bars. With its maze of narrow cobbled streets and pretty squares in which to sit and have a drink on a warm Algarve evening.

Golf: QUINTA De BENAMOR - Tavira

A delightful par 71 golf course of 5.500 metres (6.100 yards), which offers a pleasant playing experience, to players of all standards. The course is undulating but not hilly. The views of the mountains to the North and the Atlantic Ocean to the South are stunning. The indigenous olive, cork, carob, fig and almond trees, many centuries old, feature aesthetically and in playing terms. Water hazards and sand bunkers are located to test the strategy and striking ability of the player. The Penn A4 greens and tees are simply superb.

The fairways of Bermuda Sahara and cool-season grasses, provide good lies for wood and iron shots.

The Driving Range, Putting Green and large Putting Course offer excellent practice facilities.

The Benamor golf course offers several spaces for visitors. A Club House with a reception, golf shop, bar, restaurant, caddy master and changing rooms and a driving range, two putting courses and a Bugggy bar.Also available are professional lessons and golf clinics throughout the year.
