Lovely holiday at Villa Verde

  • 5 of 5
This wasn't our first trip to Villa Verde and most definitely won't be our last. The location of the villa cannot be surpassed, certainly away from the madding hordes, enabling us to enjoy peace and tranquility at it's Portuguese best. The views from both the poolside and the rooftop terrace are truly beautiful. Over the years, the villa has been constantly updated and improved. This year we were particularly impressed by the new bathroom suite. The villa had everything we needed, the kitchen is well kitted out and we enjoyed cooking on the barbeque outside on the terrace. The grounds are well maintained with fig trees, olives and almonds. We really appreciated the work of Olga in making the villa so clean for our arrival and also the fact that Jenny was available to help and advise us if we needed her. The welcome pack was a lovely touch on arrival too.
Tavira is such a beautiful town with a wealth of culture. This year we particularly enjoyed the live music in the centre some evenings. Plenty of good restaurants to eat and riverside cafes to sit and watch the world go by.

We will definitely be going back again. An absolute gem of a place and well worth every euro.

This villa is perfect for a relaxing, peaceful holiday. Everything you could possibly want or need was in this lovely villa. Excellent selection of books and music. The grounds and the views are stunning. The locals are very friendly and the village restaurant serves very tasty food. Certainly recharged our batteries....!

If you are looking for a peaceful, tranquil holiday with wonderful views out to sea this is for you. The accommodation we couldn’t fault it is so well equipped. We had BBQ’s on a few occasions and being lovers of fish found that Pingo Doce provided for all our needs but if you know what you’re looking for then the indoor market is fantastic (busy on Saturdays) with plenty of free parking behind.
For our main visits to Tavira we parked on an unmade up car park along the river from the Irish bar and would recommend restaurant Bica to anyone. It is on the same side as the Irish bar and not far from the Roman bridge.Don’t be put of by its looks the food is cheaper than most and excellent quality.
When we visit this area again we will certainly book Villa Verde.

Lovely villa in rural setting

  • 5 of 5
A perfect place to relax in peaceful countryside. The villa has all you need to make your stay homely: great kitchen, spacious dining/sitting room, two bathrooms and modern bedrooms. The garden and the pool are wonderful and meticulously looked after. The owner and his local representatives were very organised and helpful and even the pool man provided advice on cooking the local fish.

The surrounding villages and quiet and tranquil and have all you need (plus you get a very helpful welcome package of food). It all felt private, quiet and very rural. Tavira is an easy drive away and has all the supermarkets and shops you will need. We ate out on the patio everyday and admired the seaview from the roof terrace. Our two young children loved it and we would definitely go back. Highly recommended and thank you to Fred and his team for a fabulous holiday.

Paradise Revisited

  • 5 of 5
This was our second visit to the villa, the first being 22 years ago! The grounds have matured beautifully, and the addition of the swimming pool is a massive plus. The facilities in the villa remain excellent including a beautiful wet room with the best power shower this side of Faro!
The terrace provides shade and a perfect place to eat and relax, and at night the view of the lit pool definitely makes you feel a million miles from the UK. It is a superb villa in a superb location. We found this to be a perfect, relaxing holiday and would not hesitate in recommending the villa - it is fabulous! Thanks very much Fred and Mon Green.
