Overview

About the property

3 bed villa, sleeping 6, WiFi, internet tv, broadband, private pool

Luxury three bedroom villa with private pool on its own in a quiet countryside location. The villa sleeps six people comfortably and only a 25-minute drive from Faro airport and only approximately 20 minutes from Spain. Three double sized bedrooms, master bed having king sized bed and en-suite shower-room, family bathroom, fully fitted modern kitchen, dining /sitting room with internet TV and DVD player. Outside there are three terraces two secluded upstairs and one around the pool area where there is also a large brick built barbecue with shaded dining area. The swimming pool measures 9m by 5m & benefits from integral steps, making it suitable for children. The villa is approximately 5 kilometres from the medieval town of Tavira (with it's 37 Churches !) and local beaches. Three 18-hole golf courses are only 10 - 15 minutes drive away and offer superb golf in unspoilt surroundings.

Tavira: Tavira is a very old picturesque town steeped in history with lots to see a castle, churches, monuments, Roman and Moorish architecture. It has a new fish market where you can buy fresh fish, salads, meats etc daily, except Sundays. Tavira has numerous bars and restaurants, but it is also worth visiting the surrounding villages and towns for the local ambience as well. There are numerous beaches all within 5-10 minutes drive, although a car is not essential, it is advisable. Golfers will enjoy the four local golf courses all within 10 to 15 minutes drive from Casa Margarida. Other courses such as Castro Marim & Quinta da Vale (designed by Seve Ballesteros) just outside Vila Real on the border with Spain, are slightly further away but are still within 30 minutes drive. If you have any questions regarding golf, please feel free to call/email Simon.

Weather: Fact, did you know that the Algarve enjoys the mildest, sunniest winters in mainland Europe, daytime temperatures average 16 degrees centigrade (61F).

Escape the crowds associated with summer season and enjoy lovely warm sunny days during the winter months - don’t forget your T-shirt, shorts and sun cream!!

About Simon

I'm a 50 year old accountant who bought Casa Margarida using an inheritance.

Simon purchased this villa in 2006

Why Simon chose Santo Estevao

I chose the villa because of the unique combination of locality to Tavira, with all it's cobbled streets & atmospheric backstreet restaurants....local beaches....& motorway junction. And yet it is totally silent due to being set down in a little valley.

April in Tavira

  • 5 of 5

We spent from 25th - 30th April here. Particularly enjoyed Praia Verde and some really stunning walks in the surrounding hills. Also visited Pago do Inferno (a waterfall quite close by). The walkway is now in a pretty dreadful state, but it's worth a visit. The house was immaculate on arrival and the welcome pack was appreciated (and would have been even more so if we had arrived late at night). Sadly, it was really too cold to do much swimming, but the pool was clean and a good size - but we had to take the opportunity in between large clouds when the sun was scorching! Not a drop of rain though. Overall, a great 5 days.

Relaxing, well equip and lovely pool!

  • 4 of 5

Really impressed with Casa Margarida. The photos on the website don't do it justice. Lovely villa, clean and well equipped. The pool is superb, we made use of the pool and large patio area every day, so lovely and such a suntrap, not overlooked by anyone which we loved. Views from the villa are stunning, especially from the large roof terrace. We are a family of 6, plenty of space for us, property clean, tidy and perfect for our needs. Local to Tavira which is beautiful and a short drive to shops, supermarket, beach and restaurants. Would definitely recommend and use again. Thank you so much Simon!

Lovely house and pool in great location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from 2 most relaxing weeks at Casa Margarida.

The villa is very easily reached from Faro Airport. It took us about 30 mins. The house is on a quiet road next to a peach orchard. The house itself is large and airy and very well equipped. We loved the various seating areas. Breakfast was always out the front, lunch by the pool, dinner on the top terrace and then stargazing with a glass of wine on the second roof terrace. The pool was a good size and brilliant fun for all. The outside space was perfect for us. Tavira was a 15 minute drive from the villa and has everything you need for food shopping (Lidl, Aldi and two Portuguese supermarkets) as well as the municipal market, which was our favourite place for amazing fruit and veg. We only ate out once (daughter has a nut allergy) at the restaurant down the road. Lots of big meat and fish dishes at great prices. Nothing fancy, but good enough.

For days out we went on a dolphin tour from Tavira, which was fantastic with lots of dolphins swimming around our boat, a visit to an olive grove at Monterosa, a cork factory, a trip to barril beach, which we enjoyed too. Didn't fancy queueing for the ferry, so we went there instead. This beach has a carpark near a bridge, where you can cross the river on foot and then catch a little train to the beach or just take a little walk.

We had two really hot weeks, so mostly enjoyed chilling by the pool.

The booking process and information provided by Simon the owner was great. Thank you for a fantastic time. We are missing Portugal already.

Incredible good!

  • 5 of 5

The house and outside space was a very nice surprise. The house is very cousy and with reasonable space. Space outside is wonderful, very green and peacefully. We always eat our meals in different spaces, depending on the hot temperatures 😊 For lunch we always chose the terrace in the house roof that has a tremendous view and is quite fresh at this time. Dinner was also made outside near to the pool accompanied by the sounds of nature at night. We spend a fantastic and restful week in this beautiful house. Thank you for your simpathy Simon!

Golf: Ideally suited for several local golf courses including Benamor, Castro Marim, Quinta Da Cima, Quinta Da Ria, Jack Nicklaus's Monte Rei as well as being only 30 minutes from all of the Western Algarve courses. The newest local course in Quinta da Vale designed by Seve Ballesteros...but it's tough !
