Luz de Tavira Cottage Rental Photos and Description

An idyllic family house with all comforts for a peaceful holiday by the sea

This accommodation has a private 250 m² terraced garden with an inviting seating area with fresh herbs under the shade of a lemon and fig tree. Surrounded by almond groves and orchards, this property has spectacular views over the lagoon and reaching far out to the countryside. A large roof terrace with a shaded seating area and sun beds offers even more privacy for dining al fresco and sunbathing. A traditional BBQ and bread oven may inspire some Mediterranean cuisine.

An artistically renovated interior offers all comforts and modern facilities for a perfect family holiday, with a double bedroom and twin bedroom, dining and living room, large kitchen and bathroom. There is heating provided by a large wood burning stove in the living room and air conditioning in the kitchen plus wafer radiators in the bedrooms. Casita da Ria has wireless internet.

Four quality sun loungers deck the roof terrace and there are sun umbrellas, two tables and chairs available.

There are shops and cafés, good restaurants and other amenities 3.5km away in the fishing village of Santa Luzia. Approximately 15 minutes walk from the house is a touristic village Pedras d’el Rei which has a shop, cafés and a restaurant, playground and gardens. Luz de Tavira is about the same distance and has more amenities.

Stunning Algrvean beaches are a beautiful 15 minutes walk away, there is a footbridge crossing the river and leading to Barril beach, which can be reached wither by foot or by miniature train, all year round. Terra Estreita is reached by boat from Santa Luzia during the summer season.

A car is not at all essential, though recommended during the height of summer…and for reaching all the beautiful and interesting places further afield. Car rental, taxi transfers and bicycle hire can be organized with local reputable firms in advance or by calling the local representative.

Reached via country lanes pertaining to the EcoVia pedestrian and cycle path circuit. A 5 min drive from villages and main roads.

This location is quiet and peaceful yet not too remote, there are a handful of residents in the neighbourhood.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Wir hatten einen wunderbaren Aufenthalt im Casita da Ria. Das Häuschen hat uns sehr gut gefallen und auch die Umgebung war tiptop. Es gibt fast nichts zu verbessern. Ich käme gerne wieder :)
