Villa Alfarroba, so named because of the lovely, very old Alfarroba (carob) tree in our front garden, is in the little hamlet of Sta Rita, just 3km from the beautiful blue flag beach at Manta Rota. Our villa offers the perfect setting for exploring the Eastern Algarve. Within a 15 minute drive of Villa Alfarroba there are 7 golf courses to choose from including the prestigious course of Monte Rei designed by Jack Nicklaus. The towns of Tavira and Cabanas are within easy reach and are great for an evening stroll and a sundowner outside one of the many street cafés. Faro is about 40 minutes from Villa Alfarroba and is an easy journey with the majority via motorway where often you can drive from one exit to the next and not see any other cars! Whether you want to enjoy the culture, the many sporting activities or visit the local towns, go to theme parks ,take a trip up the Guadiana, pop across to Spain, do some bird watching or just laze by the pool - there is something for everyone!

Golf: If you want to escape the crowds, the Eastern Algarve is perfect for golf. It is less developed and much less crowded. This is perfect accommodation for golfers wishing to sample the excellent courses situated in the Eastern Algarve. Within a 20km radius there are 7 courses to choose from - all within 15 minutes of Villa Alfarroba. These courses are in areas of natural beauty and are free from the development of fairway-lining villas. We are a few minutes from the prestigious new course of Monte Rei designed by Jack Nicklaus. Although a costly experience, this is a real treat for golfing fanatics wishing to experience a little high life! It is already ranked in the Top 20 in Europe & Top 100 in the world by Golf Digest USA - the only Portuguese course to achieve this ranking.
