- english, french, german, portuguese
We have really hectic lives and holidays are really important to us. Casa Lia, is home from home. Portugal is a beautiful country, relatively unspoiled by tourism. I went to night school last year to learn the language! When I am not wearing my bikini at the villa, I am a bit of an anorak. Holidays are very much family time for us, which we really treasure and I suppose I hope the girls will keep coming on holiday to our lovely home for as long as possible, perhaps even with grandchildren one day!
Debbie purchased this Villa in 2008
Why Debbie chose Conceição
Tavira is in a really unspoiled part of the Algarve. It's a very pretty Roman town with cobbled streets and lovely restaurants. My husband and I love totally peaceful holidays which is why we bought Casa Lia. However, we have daughters of 19 and 22 who love all the things that young people do. It's important that there's enough to keep them occupied. This year they brought boyfriends with them and spent days splashing in the pool, listening to CDs and when it got too hot they chilled with DVDs in the air-conditioning. The enjoyed the new shopping centre, went to Faro, Manta Rota, Cabanas, Cacela Velha,and ate delicious meals in Tavira, enjoyed the entertainment in the square, went to an open air concert with fireworks in Manta Rota and had beach days there and at Praia Verde.
What makes this Villa unique
We came to Tavira in November 2007 and viewed 40 properties in 5 days. With Casa Lia, it was pretty much love at first sight. We couldn't get over the feeling of sheer space, light and sunshine. The marble tiles in the bathrooms are nicer than the ones we have at home! You stand outside the house and it is almost shockingly peaceful. If two birds twitter at the same time, that seems noisy! Perhaps you'll hear the buzz of a Vespa scooter a mile away, but that's about it. The views are panoramic with the Atlantic in the distance and around you beautiful rolling countryside. We have almost three acres, so total privacy is what you get. Sitting there early in the morning before the children get up with my fresh coffee and novel I feel the stress just flow away! Why do we live in London?..

Peaceful and relaxing
Had a lovely week in the villa it is very well appointed and has everything you need.
The area is very peaceful and there is lots of space.
It is about a 15 min drive into Tavira, with a couple of local restaurants 5 mins drive away.
If you want a great relaxing holiday in a beautiful area recommenced very much.
Our third visit to Casa Lia which must say something! We love the well equipped house and it's lovely garden and pool which we can happily spend many hours in. We love the location, away from the crowds with far reaching views and the peace and quiet. We love the friendly nature of the owner and the people who look after the villa and pool who are always so helpful. There really is nothing we don't love about the place and we will be back!
The most relaxing vacation!
We stayed 2 weeks at Casa Lia and really enjoyed it. The house is spacious and we especially liked the outside area at the pool a lot. Since there are no direct neighbors it was wonderful that the kids were able to play at the pool and did not disturb anyone with noise. It is so peaceful out there and we were really able to relax! The drive from the main road (125) to the house is quiet a bit (about 15 minutes), but that is ok. Our favorite beaches were Cabanas and Praia Verde.
Unsere Auszeit vom Stress und Alltag im Casa Lia
Casa Lia ist ideal um eine Auszeit vom Stress und Alltag zu nehmen. Casa Lia ist ideal dafür in den Hügeln nahe dem Wald von Conceicao gelegen. Das Ferienhaus ließ keine Wünsche offen. Es ist sehr sauber und in einem gepflegten Zustand. Auf der Terasse haben wir bei einer Tasse Kaffee traumhafte Sonneaufgänge genossen. Am Nachmittag am Pool relaxt und am Abend bei einem Glas Wein den Tag ausklingen lassen. Zur Stadt Tavira mit dem sehenswerten Stadtkern und unzähligen Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, sind es nur 15 Minuten. Auch zu den Stränden nach Ilha de Tavira, Mata Rota oder Cabanas ist es nicht viel mehr. Die Strände sind allesamt sehr weitläufig und laden zu langen Spaziergängen und zum baden im Meer ein. Ausgedehnte Tagesausflüge von Casa Lia führten uns zu historischen Gebäuden nahe der spanischen Grenze, über Sand City, Carvoeiro, Albufeira bis Cabo Verde. An den Stränden vor der einzigartigen Steilküste findet man immer einen Platz um den fantastischen Ausblick zu geniesen. Der Kontakt zu Debbie war und ist immer noch super nett. Debbie stand uns in allen Fragen zu jeder Zeit mit Rat und Tat zur Verfügung. Auch Mitchel vor Ort, hat uns immer seine Unterstützung angeboten. Vom ersten Kontakt, bis zur Schlüßelübergabe war alles komplikationslos. Wir sind uns schon jetzt sicher, in 2019 nach Casa Lia zurückzukehren. Steffi und Volker
We were let down by the villa we had originally wanted to book in Spain and so had a last minute scramble to find somewhere to stay within our budget. Debbie was so helpful when I spoken to her and assured me that the Villa sounded like just what we needed.
The pictures looked amazing and so we were quite excited. The whole process was very easy, We arrived in Faro and picked up our hire car, we called Mitchell and he was happy with us going shopping first and then meeting him. We found Aldi in Tavira with no trouble and bought a few bits to see us through the first few days and then met Mitchell for the final drive up to the villa.
When we arrived, after the slightly hairy drive with narrow roads (I have never driven a LH drive car before) we arrived at the most amazing and beautiful location.
The Villa was clean, light, bright and airy. With no immediate neighbours it was also very peaceful.
There was plenty of space both inside and outside and amazing views from the roof terrace. You could even see the sea on the horizon. The rooms were all comfortable and clean, despite my visitor (I found a gecko on the wall but he kept hiding somewhere so I couldn't put him out) I slept very well. My friends found it a little too quiet, but they both live in a city so are not used the silence.
We travelled to Tavira on 2 days of our short stay and found it to be a beautiful place, the people were all very friendly and the food in bar/restaurant Matias was amazing. We also took a drive to Pedras D'el Rei which was very easy to find with stunning beaches. it seemed very popular though with the beach still being packed when we arrived at 5.30pm.
All in all we had an amzing break and are already thinking of returning next year and recommending it to our family and friends.
Fantastic peaceful and spacious well equipped villa
Just returned from a short stay at Casa Lia. We absolutely loved it. Travelling with two teenage boys we all had plenty of our own space as lots of room inside and outside. Everything was there that you needed even down to the picnic box & cold blocks for when we were out for the day to the water parks. There were plenty of towels, plastic pots and all conceivable kitchen items. The villa whilst peaceful is down an unmade track for the last 800 metres. We had a low slung sports car which was not ideal. Plenty of places to visit within a 30-45 drive. There are large supermarkets within a 15 minute drive. The house manager Mitchell was very helpful and the check in process was very easy including liaising with Debbie the owner who was extrembly helpful. We would love to come back again.
The beaches are beautiful. You will be spoilt for choice. 15 minutes drive to Manta Rota, or take the ferry to the Island of Tavira. Try Cabanas or Barill Beach and enjoy the sea front bars of the village of Santa Luzia.
45 minutes drive from Faro airport. We will provide detailed directions and our house manager is happy to meet you en route and escort you directly to Casa Lia.
Tavira has good supermarkets, including, Continente, Pingo Doce, Mini Preco and Lidl. There is a brand new shopping centre called Tavira Gran-Plaza, with a hypermarket, shops, cafes and cinema. Or travel 20 minutes east to Vila Real de Santo Antonio and pick up some great linen. The Spanish border is close by.
Tavira is pretty and unspoiled with cobbled streets and lots of restaurants. It is lively in the summer months with entertainment in the main square in the evenings. Kids will love a day out at the very lively Aqua Show water park in Quarteira, or how about swimming with the dolphins at Zoo Marine near Guia?
