Overview

Malhão Villa Rental Photos and Description

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.

Charles from UK

  • 5 of 5

It was a great place to lie by the pool reading and soaking up the sun and heat. The beds were comfortable which was for me a definite plus. The bathrooms being two was perfect because the children had their own. The kitchen was well equipped and all the rooms were a good size. Hot water was available in all the bathrooms. Paula and her husband and son were brilliant and gave us a great welcome without being intrusive, answered all our enquires promptly and it was so reassuring to have them at the end of a phone. The location just right because in a semi-remote place yet still close to Tavira. Thank you for making our holiday relaxing and comfortable.

Casa Margarida

  • 3 of 5

We had a lovely holiday in your house. The location is very nice and

quiet, yet right along a narrow rarely used road. The reception by Paula

was great, as well as the fridge which was nicely stocked. The beds are

really comfortable, but they are definitely not king sized. We had a couple

cool evenings, so we were happy to use the fireplace in the house.

Yet there were some disturbing elements, some renovations are definitely

necessary (mainly outside). Some examples: the sunbeds are totally worn

out, the pillows are dirty, the sun umbrella is worn, as well as all the

insect screens, the stone benches in the garden are dirty, as well as the

pool (which was not cleaned like promised). The site mentions that the

house is wheelchair accesible, but this is not true. Although there is a

garage, this is not for the tenants. It's clear the pictures on the site

were taken a long time ago.

Owner's Response: I am glad you had an enjoyable trip to Casa Margarida. I would like to reply to some of your comments. In general i make a pre-season trip to the villa in Feb-April time to do whatever is required for the coming season....i do not normally rent it out prior to my visit however this year I had 2 early rentals so the villa wasn't it's usual pristine self. I have just returned from my refurbishment trip (mid April) & can confirm 1. The sun loungers have been replaced. 2. The villa has a new coat of paint. 3. The internal pictures have been replaced with new, bright & larger photos of Tavira & Seville. 4. The patio has had a thorough clean. 5. The pool had a small leak & could not be cleaned until it had been fixed, which has now been done. 6. All towels have been replaced. 7. Any linen has been replaced that was not perfect. In the UK & Portugal a standard king size bed is 5 feet wide and 6 feet 6 inches long (150 x 198 cm), which is what i have in the main bedroom....all the bedding is labelled with king size linen.......i can only assume King Size beds are larger in the Netherlands. The 4 beds in the other 2 bedrooms in standard singles. Also, i did consider the villa to be wheelchair friendly as it has only 2 internal steps but take on board your comments & so have removed this from the website. Kind regards Simon

Lovely villa, peaceful and private

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely place to stay if, like us, you like peace and quiet and prefer to be in the countryside but close to Tavira, rather than right in the centre. The villa is spacious and well equipped. There are lots of nice areas to sit outside- not just the lovely pool area but also two roof terraces. Unfortunately, when we were there the weather was pretty cool and grey, but it would be perfect in good weather. There was a generous welcome pack when we arrived, which was much appreciated. We would definitely return.

Lovely secluded villa

  • 4 of 5

Everything worked perfectly - the villa is in a very secluded position some miles out of Tavira which suited us well. Given this seclusion, a "Welcome Pack" of information would have been appreciated! The swimming pool was fantastic.

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 !
