Lovely relaxing holiday, beautiful pool & garden,

  • 4 of 5

We have holidayed many times in Portugal & had day visited Tavira before but this was the first time we holidayed in the area - loved it!

Our party of 4 (2 couples in our 60's) were delighted with Quinta Mimosa. Its location is quiet & secluded but offers easy access into the town itself. The pool & huge grounds are superb, the BBQ area enticed us into staying in on a few nights when we enjoyed fish brought from the local market with a few glasses of Planalto (my wife's favourite Portuguese white wine). There are plenty of nearby restaurants to chose from if you don't wish to cook. A choice of golf courses nearby too!

We think the villa was renovated a few years ago & some parts were just a little tired as was the pool loungers but this is really a minor criticism & the only thing that stops us rating it 5 star. We are quite discerning & we genuinely loved the villa & intend to return next year. The manager (Dina) is always on hand to help & advise.

In conclusion we had probably our best ever holiday in Portugal & we have visited over 20 times.

Absolutely stunning place! We really felt at home.

  • 5 of 5

Found the home very stylish and incredibly comfortable. Slept well, and enjoined the various spaces within and outside the house. It was easy to find, and certainly easy to stay. The difficult part was leaving! Thanks for making our Tavira trip so special.

A magnificent villa on a big estate in Tavira, Algarve Region, Portugal

  • 5 of 5

This magnificent spectacular villa offers everything that you would find in a five stars Hotel and more. It has all the amenities : tennis court, gym, swimming pool with built-in bar and barbecue. The friendly gardener Emanuel welcomed us warmly and brought us fresh strawberries and eggs every morning. The villa is immaculate and extremely clean, it comes with a state of the art fully equipped California kitchen. The house is furnished with style and high standard quality. It is surrounded with beautiful gardens, flowers, trees and you can pick your own fruits, vegetables and herbs. I particularly enjoyed reading in the library room with stunning views from all big bay windows and lounging by the swimming pool. The villa is a short drive to Tavira Centre where you would find many great local fish and seafood restaurants. My husband and I had the most wonderful time and would make this quaint villa on the big estate on top of our lists for future vacations.

Een paradijs

  • 5 of 5

Wij hebben met onze 2 dochters van 9 en 11 jaar 10 dagen genoten van dit prachtige huis. We werden heel gastvrij ontvangen en er was zelfs gezorgd voor water, vers fruit en andere eerste benodigdheden. De tuinman is erg vriendelijk en verzorgt elke dag alles rondom het huis.

Het huis heeft echt alles wat je je maar kunt wensen. De ligging is landelijk, heel rustig en mooi. Ongeveer 10 autominuten van het centrum van Tavira. Heel goed te doen. Het heeft een grote en goed onderhouden tuin met een heerlijk groot zwembad. Ook de buitenkeuken met bbq is van alle gemakken voorzien.

Het huis zelf heeft echt alles wat je nodig hebt. zelfs meer dan dat!

Het is een goede uitvalsbasis voor de omgeving te verkennen. auto is wel een must.

Kortom....wij hebben een fantastische vakantie gehad op een paradijslijk plekje, waar we graag nog een keer naar terug gaan.

You can visit the local market - by Tavira's new bridge to buy produce grown in the surrounding farms and fish caught that day by the local wooden fishing boats which have their own harbor and fish market in the charming town of Tavira.

The area is famous for its beautiful golden sandy beaches, most with convenient restaurants. Stroll across the centuries old Roman bridge and take a refreshing drink in one of the many cafes bordering the River (Rio) Gilao in the centre of quaint old town of Tavira. The town itself is full of restaurants and shops and from here you can take a little ferry or a water taxi to the island (Ilha de Tavira) with sandy beach and crystal clear waters. There there is a diving school and most water sports are available.
