Cerro Da Vela is an imposing 6 bedroom Premier Villa just outside the small village of Livramento in the unspoilt eastern Algarve between Olhao and Tavira, part of the eastern Algarve, Portugal.
The villa is very close to the estuary and beaches, and has superb sea views, but there is no access directly to the closest beaches from the villa.
The pretty town of Luz da Tavira is about 5 Kilometres from the villa; here you will find local shopping, banks, a local market and a health centre plus some small restaurants and bars.
Tavira is about 15 Kilometres away, with a choice of main shopping, and an excellent choice of bars and restaurants.
There is a choice of beaches within a short drive from the villa. To the east you have Praia da Barril and Pedras del Rei, both about 8 Kilometres away. You have to cross the estuary by bridge, and then a small train takes you to the beaches. In the westerly direction you have Fuseta which is about 5 Kilometres from the villa.
Fuseta is a quaint little village with some bars and restaurants. It has its own beach, but there is also a ferry across the lagoon (excellent for windsurfing), to Armona Island, which is a spectacular long sandy beach with dunes, very quiet even in the height of summer.
There is now a choice of 3 golf courses in the Tavira area - Benamor, Quinta da Ria and Quinta da Cima, plus 3 others further east - Monte Rei near Vila Nova da Cacela, and Castro Marim and Quinta do Vale both at Castro Marim on the Spanish border.
