          Great place for a relaxing holiday in the Algarve

          5 of 5
          A wonderful week, but all too short, at Villa Celta. The Villa, sitting on the very top of one of the foothills at the back of East Algarve town of Tavira, provides spectacular uninterrupted 360º views of the East Algarve coastline and Ocean to the South, valleys and hills to the North, West and East. The historic coastal town of Tavira, with its museums, historical buildings, archaeological sites, restaurants, supermarkets, shopping center, cultural events and medical center, if needed, was readily and easily accessed within 15 minutes on a well maintained road winding down from the foothills through the beautiful green valley floor with it’s Orange orchards accompanying the river before reaching the town of Tavira. The coastline in this area is the home to the nature reserve of Rio Formosa with long fine sandy beaches. The beaches are clean and well served with various amenities but are extensive enough to find space far from the crowds. The ocean in this area is clear and calm with very pleasant temperatures in the summer months. The nature reserve and beaches were also easily accessed with a short car ride from the Villa. The hill range to the back of the Villa is extensive and was very interesting area to explore with different viewing points, villages, places to eat, areas of natural beauty, historical and archaeological sites of interest. Villa Celta itself was a fantastic place of peace and quiet. It is not overlooked with the nearest neighbours several hundreds of metres away in the surrounding hills. The Villa, pool, surrounding terraces and gardens are a high standard of design and construction and well maintained. The Villa was clean and well equipped with everything needed, e.g. washing machine, kitchen utensils, crockery ect... to facilitate our stay. On a number of days we were happy just to spend the day relaxing, taking in the views, eating, and enjoying the Villa and its pool. The agency managing the Villa, Visit EastAlgarve, Jens and Heidi, were friendly and attentive providing excellent service throughout the booking process and during our stay. Villa Celta is an ideal combination of isolation in the hills with peace and tranquillity whilst only a short car ride from the towns and beaches of the Algarve with all their convenience and associated activities and amenities. Certainly recommend Villa Celta as a place for a relaxing holiday in the East Algarve

          Spacious house in an ideal location

          5 of 5
          We have returned from a two-week stay at this spacious house. The modern house with well-equipped kitchen and bathrooms has everything we needed including Wi-Fi. It is clean with all facilities you require. It is in an ideal location with lovely views, just ten minutes by car to the beautiful town of Tavira and it is a gateway to so many beautiful spots along the Algarve. A perfect choice for people wanting to relax, enjoy the peace and tranquility of the countryside. We had a tremendously relaxing holiday at this house and would have no hesitation returning.
