Le cadre est hydillique, des hectares de nature, une vue magnifique sur le paysage...le passage de superbes chèvres au loin. Une piscine à débordement qui plonge dans ce paysage de rêve...la maison posée sur un petit promontoire offre des vues et une exposition idéales. Dans l'esprit de l'architecture locale, la maison se fond dans la topographie, embrassant la colline. Les prestations de la maison sont haut de gamme, les volumes et les espaces sont généreux, la décoration raffinée et chaleureuse.. les literies sont de qualité ainsi que le linge de lit, le linge de maison. Les draps et essuis sentait bon le frais. La maison était dans un état impeccable, le ménage avait été fait avec soin. La cuisine est équipée avec du matériel haut de gamme, très agréable à vivre. De belles sélections d'épices, huiles, ... beaucoup de priduits était à disposition dès notre arrivée.. également dans les produits ménagers. Nous nous sommes sentis réellement bien accueillis. La situation de la maison est idéale pour visiter la région, proche des plages, commerces, etc.. des voisins charmants à 500m éleveurs de chèvres. Crispin qui fût notre correspondant pour la location était des plus sympatique et disponible. Nous recommandons vivement cette splendide propriété aux plus exigeants.. habitués de ce site, nous partons chaque année deux fois par an. Ces vacances furent parmi les plus belles de nos destinations. A faire! Nous recommandons ce bien les yeux fermés.

It is ideally located in a quiet area, yet only a 10 minute drive to the historical town of Tavira, with its cobbled streets and fantastic restaurants, bars and craft shops. The quaint village of Santo Estevao is only a leisurely stroll away, or you can make use of the cycles provided. The villa is set in beautifully manicured landscaped gardens, with sea views from the pool and terraced area. There are an abundance of beaches close by, and in my opinion, the best on The Algarve. I would definitely recommend this villa to friends and family.

                                                                                                      Our 2nd visit to Tavira, but our first in this apartment. Information and contact details provided prior to our stay alowed us to find the apartment with no trouble. Sandra was waiting for us to show us around and the secure, dedicated underground garage space meant we didn't need to worry about finding parking. Location was perfect - a short stroll into town. There seemed to be very few people staying in the complex, so it was very quiet. Everything was very clean and the kitchen was very well equipped. Nice to see that the shower curtain in the photos has been replaced by a glass screen (I hate clingy shower curtains!). Didn't use the pool due to the time of year (though still 22C most days). Also, we drove to local beaches (Barril was a favourite) as the ferry no longer left from Tavira town (again, time of year...). Lots of lovely restaurants, all very reasonably priced. We tended to avoid anywhere with pictures of food on display outside! Surprisingly, we needed to book for dinner most nights, even to get a table at 7pm. Also a few places "closed for the holidays" and for renovations. Enjoyed meals in Aquasul and A Taska (twice in both). Would have liked to eat at D'gusta, but it was closed, with a very loose "see you in November" sign in the window. The relaxed Portugese way of life! In summary, another very enjoyable visit to Tavira, made even better by great accommodation.
