                                  Stunning property

                                  5 of 5
                                  We loved staying here and didn't want to leave .....it is a beautifully built and furnished villa - the owners have done a fab job with it. It's really spacious as well with beautiful landscaped gardens around the property. The aircon is in all the main rooms and bedrooms and that worked really well as it was so hot whilst we were there. The kitchen was really well stocked too - great cooking utensils and I loved the big fridge with the ice dispenser. We loved having the pool - it was a good size and much needed to cool off in. My husband is a keen cyclist and there were quite a few routes he took from the villa which he enjoyed. We had a car so were able to get into Tavira easily and there is a supermarket within 5 mins drive. Tavira itself is a really charming place with lots of amazing restaurants (the tapas place called 'Pausa' is also very lovely and worth a visit). Since being back I have been reminiscing about the long lovely days we spent at the villa - a beautiful place to relax and unwind!! We highly recommend it.

                                  Relaxing First Family Holiday

                                  5 of 5
                                  This was our first family holiday with our 9 month old daughter. We had a very relaxing and enjoyable week. The villa was equipped with everything we needed. Our daughter absolutely loved the pool and the pretty gardens. There was a big supermarket (pingo doce) 10 minutes drive away, or a local shop only a 5 minute walk. The beach was a short 15 minute drive and our daughter loved the little train ride (also accessible by footpath). This was a very special week for us and we shall remember it for years to come. We shall definitely return next year! Many thanks

                                  Fantastic holiday retreat

                                  5 of 5
                                  We have just returned from this lovely villa after a week of fun, great weather and quality family time together. A group of 7 adults and 2 small babies this villa had everything to accommodate us all perfectly. The spacious living areas and great sized bedrooms allowed us all to have enough space and privacy but catered for great family eating and days by the pool. The location was superb being away from the tourist areas a real feel of Portuguese life with lovely neighbours but the convenience of all shops and large supermarkets just a ten minute drive away. We went to Tavira Island which was well worth the trip and to experience the little ferry boat was great fun but other than that we didn't venture too far as the villa had everything we needed. Great evening dining with the garden lit up with little fairy lights and magnificent views. Couldn't have asked for a better place for us to create great memories. We would definitely like to return.
