We had a very nice 12 days staying in the villa. It was close to my daughter so very convenient. It was verry comfortable. Shame it was too cold to use the swimming pool it looked very inviting.
Awesome villa everything you could need or want.Large,contemporary very well equipped.
A car is absolutely necessary due to the location which is peaceful, relaxing and has tremendous views across the countryside. The pool was superb iI personally would have liked it a bit warmer but once in it was refreshing, a great size for swimming.
The villa is contemporary in style, we had regular visits from the 2 dogs next door Jet and chagy ( think that was his name) they never came without an invite but well behaved and a pleasure to have visit.
All in all we had a superb holiday one we hope to repeat!
CASA BALLINA is located in the rural hamlet of Eiroes, 10kms North of Tavira Town. Other than a few nearby villas, there is nothing much around apart from wonderful mountain views, which means that whilst your stay will be peaceful, a car is essential when staying here. Shopping and restaurants are plentiful in nearby towns, around 10 minutes drive away
TAVIRA TOWN - Once known as the capital of the Algarve, Tavira stands proud amongst Portuguese history books and you will not fail to be enthralled by its unspoilt charm, character and tranquillity. As you wander along the cobbled streets, you'll see an abundance of history and wonderful architecture. A Roman bridge links the 2 parts of the town across the River Gilao, its sides decorated with traditional old bars and restaurants - perfect for lazy lunches or a glass or 2!.
On one side of the town there is a large square which has entertainment in the summer months, and by crossing the Roman Bridge to the other side of the town, you will find a little more life in the evenings with a great selection of restaurants tucked away down the streets and a few later opening café/bars. Features and things to visit include the many churches (37 in total!), the Town Castle and the Camara Obscura with its stunning aerial views. There is a range of shops to explore, as well as the old market building recently restored with cafes, shops and artisan, and also the traditional indoor market selling locally grown produce and fresh fish. To enjoy and see the full Tavira aspect, you can take the passenger train which follows a set route around the town, or you can personalize your experience by taking a ‘TUK TUK’ tour in the small vehicles for 2 – 6 persons.
LOCAL BEACH - ILHA DE TAVIRA
The Beach Island of Tavira is just stunning. As a natural island separated from the mainland by the River Formosa, it is reached by catching a ferry from the main Tavira Harbour or towards Quatro Aguas. A excellent range of facilities is available including beach bars and a great selection of restaurants suiting most tastes. You can also hire sunbeds and sunshades. During the high summer season, there are also water sports and fun activities for all to enjoy. The sands are lovely and white, the sea is calm and together, these ingredients provide a wonderful tropical beach atmosphere akin to the Caribbean!
OTHER THINGS TO SEE AND DO
…….by travelling a little further afield there are a good range of things to do to suit all tastes. For nature lovers there are forest walks, cruises along the River Guadiana or natures trails along the Ria Formosa Reserve where bird watching is in abundance! By travelling towards the West there are some excellent shopping centres in Faro and Ghia as well as the famous Water Parks and Zoo Marine (wonderful for children), all easily reached by car in around 45 minutes. We also recommend a day trip to Spain. The lovely border town of Ayamonte is around 25 minutes by car, and once there you can sample the delights of another country, including wine, tapas and excellent shopping. For the more adventurous the vibrant city of Seville is only approx 170km away
