The beautiful Ria Formosa!: The Ria Formosa in the Algarve is a beautiful labyrinth of lagoons separated from the sea by a coastal dune system which is broken up by various natural inlets. It is one of the most important nature reserves in the network of wetlands that links Europe and sub-Saharan Africa. The Ria has an enormous variety of natural habitats that provide refuge, feeding and breeding areas for an infinite number of flora and fauna and is a haven for birds.

The beaches of the isles of Faro, Barreta, Culatra, Armona and Tavira form a natural barrier to the Ocean. Behind are the dunes, sometimes just a narrow strip and sometimes wider and then come the labyrinth of lagoons and small sand islands and channels. At low tide other salty habitats are uncovered forming marches and salt marshes.

A wintering ground for many migratory birds. The Estuary has an enormous variety of natural habitats and biotopes that provide refuge, feeding or breeding areas for an infinite number of organisms.

FABULOUS

  • 5 of 5

We were most impressed with the cleanliness of the villa. We had everything we could possibly need to enjoy a totally relaxing time in wonderful surroundings. Could not have wished for a better home from home.

Thoroughly recommend this villa for 2 to 10 people, space for everyone.

Amazing property

  • 5 of 5

12 of us stayed at this home in July for a week. I call it home because it had all the comfort and luxury of home. It was Beautiful, very spacious and well maintained and equipped with everything you can imagine and then some to make it so comfortable. The pool was awesome and the short walk to one of the most beautiful beaches was amazing. Andrew and Elsie were so nice, easy to deal with and very professional. We will defiantly deal with them again. Thank you for making our stay and holiday one we will always remember. Susy T.

Had a wonderful holiday here! Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This house is spacious, modern, luxurious and perfect for holidays in the sun. Amazing pool with table and seating in it! Walking distance to the white sandy beach which has two lovely restaurants. You can also walk to the local café and mini market which are always open, very reasonable and friendly. Easy drive from Faro airport and Spain. Monte Gordon and Altura are very close too. Will absolutely be going back here again. Plenty of room for 12 people. The down stairs bathroom and bedroom (sleeping four) was perfect for my disabled mother in law. Lots of fantastic golf couses near by . If you want a proper Portuguese location then this is it. If you want Southend on sea with sun then go to Albufera! All in all I say 10 out of 10.

Nice house, great location, friendly service

We had a wonderful stay in this house. We had three families with small children, and the place was perfect. The bedrooms were comfortable, the kitchen was well equipped, the pool was great, and the beach was fantastic. Highly recommend the place!

Fabulous holiday at Casa Brian

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a magical stay at Casa Brian. The villa is spacious and have everything you need for a comfortable stay. The pool is immaculate and big enough for our group of 11. Kitchen is well equipped. Bedrooms and bathrooms are clean and modern.

However it was the friendliness and hospitality of Andrew and Else which really made for a wonderful holiday. Nothing was too much trouble from taking our little girl to the doctor to let us stay longer on our return day ( due to late flight).

We will definitely recommend Casa Brian to our friends and everybody.
