This was the 4th time we went there and we really love it The house itself , in the mountain , quiet and so close to Tavira city and the beaches, with his swimming pool is perfect. The situation , jus after a farm with goats, dogs, and hens is really great for us , coming from Paris , mainly this year See you next year for the 5th time , for sure !

Fantastic location, secluded yet within minutes of supermarkets, restaurants and the lovely town of Tavira. Very quick drive to all three of the main beaches which were clean, safe and fun to get to by boat or train. There was a great folder in the villa recommending places to eat and we tried many without disappointment. Owner very thoughtful with DVD's, games, books etc. Very relaxing and we will definitely return.

The Villa is beautiful and had everything we could won't or need with some fantastic views. The pool was brilliant and we all enjoyed having a great time in it. The only draw back is its a little to far to walk into Tavira in the heat ( it was the end of July and the temperature was in the 30's), but there is a fantastic local taxi service which only cost around 5 euros to take 7 of us into Tavira and they were usually with you in 5 minutes. Loved it!
