About the property

An Ideal Holiday Location For Large Families And Couples

This luxurious, new 5 bedroom villa is located in the tranquil hills just outside the beautiful old town of Tavira, with incredible panoramic views. Easy access to beautiful white sand beaches and great golfing. There are spacious terraces surrounding the house and a splendid mosaic pool. Generous and ergonomically designed ensuite bedrooms. An ideal holiday location for large families and couples.

Villa do Álamo is surrounded by ample terraces on both floors affording great views. The secluded and private 7 acre grounds border orchards and olive groves of neighbouring farms.

The living space of Villa do Álamo is on the first floor, with spacious dining and living rooms and a wonderful, more than fully equipped kitchen! No expense has been spared on the kitchen appliances and utensils, a delight to use! The kitchen has a walk-in pantry that leads from the kitchen with another freezer. Even the kitchen has panoramic views…

Terraces can be accessed from the living room and dining room and have plenty of space for dining and entertaining al fresco.

There is unlimited wireless internet access included, a DVD player, and ipod docking station. Free to view UK channels are available and wi-fi access is through a mobile network dongle.

On the ground floor each en suite bedroom has access to the pool terrace and has been designed with first class finishings and furnishings. Each room has mosquito screens on every door and window that allows for enjoying the sea breeze, all bedrooms also have air conditioning. There are three king size beds and two twin bedded rooms. An extra guest bathroom with a bath tub is on the ground floor by the front door and utility room.

Ten quality sun loungers deck the terrace around the pool. Villa Álamo has a shaded poolside dining and barbeque area. Sun umbrellas are also provided.

A beautiful 10 m x 5 m pool with steps leads into a shallow end of 90 cm and a deep end of 2 m. This is a freshwater pool with salt cleaning system. There is an external mosaic shower beside the pool and an external WC and basin beside the pool terrace. The pool is serviced twice weekly during summer and once weekly during the rest of the year by a competent and reliable professional.

There is also a shaded parking area for vehicles.

A variety of supermarkets are just 1.4 km away, a short car or taxi ride away. Within Tavira numerous cafes and a good choice of restaurants offer an abundance of fresh and local cuisine and low key charismatic nightlife.

There is a boat service from the centre of Tavira to the beach island of Tavira and also further down river from Quatro Aguas. Barril beach and Manta Rota beach are approximately 10 minutes drive away.

There are excellent golf courses within 8 to 15 minutes drive from the accommodation. The closest are Benamor, Quinta da Ria and Quinta da Cima, Monte Rei.

A car is recommended, especially in the heat of summer…and for reaching all the beautiful and interesting places further afield. Car rental, taxi transfers and bicycle hire can be organized with local reputable firms in advance or by calling the local representative.

There are a flight of stairs internally and externally to reach the first floor living area.

Villa do Álamo is not at all overlooked and is located at the end of a lane. The nearest house is 150 metres away.

Tarmac roads from Tavira lead to a 450 metre country lane and onwards to villa Àlamo.

The area of Monte do Álamo is rural and quiet.

Ashtrays are provided for smoking outside the property.

Due to the possibility of guests being allergic to animal hair, we would rather not allow pets.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Wij hebben erg genoten van Villa Alamo van 27 juli tot 5 augustus. Het is een heel mooi huis met alle comfort. De ligging op de heuvel, in alle rust maar wel op korte reistijd van Tavira, de supermarkt en de stranden, was

voor ons ideaal. De terrassen, het zwembad, de keuken en de mooie slaapkamers met badkamer

waren heel fijn.

Tavira, referred to in guide books as the ‘Venice of the Algarve’ is one of the most authentic towns in the Algarve and definitely worth visiting.

Historically, Tavira was an important harbour town and there are still remnants from Moorish, Phoenician and Roman occupations. There is a lively fishing trade along the river front, though far less than when Tavira was known for its huge tuna fishing fleets, the anchors of which can all be seen lodged in the sand at Barril beach.

The beautiful centre of Tavira is situated on the banks of the river Gilão. The town has a seven arched Roman bridge that spans the river and is the focal point of the town. Tavira was virtually rebuilt in the eighteenth century after the famous earthquake of 1755 destroyed most of the buildings. The impressive church of Sta. Maria do Castelo has a gothic portal and stands on the site of the former 13th century mosque and most of the 37 churches have beautiful tile work within. There are many examples of Renaissance and Manueline architecture including the arched doorway of the Misericordia church. The 13th century castle walls border the medieval centre of town, encompassing tranquil gardens and a Camera Obscura. From there your eyes can scan over the rich tapestry of peaked rooftops to the estuary leading through the mosaic of salt pans and far out into the Atlantic.

There are many highly recommended fish restaurants, which serve locally caught shellfish and fresh fish dishes, enjoyed with a glass of ‘vinho verde’, the ´green` sparkling wine which is typically Portuguese. Numerous cafes and restaurants line the river, public gardens and quiet squares, offering an array of traditional patisserie and fresh fish dishes.

Tavira beaches make up part of the Nature Reserve of the Ria Formosa, which comprise six unique barrier islands protecting a system of salt marshes and tidal mudflats, each fronted by white sand beaches that spread as far as the eye can see. An unspoilt haven for nature lovers, walkers and bird watchers.

Few places in Europe have so many Blue Flag beaches in such a concentrated area, you can enjoy the boat and miniature train river crossings, many of which are operational throughout the year.

Inland and set in rural countryside 7 km north of Tavira is the waterfall of ‘Moinhos da Rocha’. A series of wooden decks and bridges skirt a leafy ravine sheltering the crystal clear waters of a small stream. This culminates in a low but impressive waterfall that empties into a small lake. Further up stream are the other beautiful cascading waterfalls of ‘Pego do Inferno’, both pretty places for picnics and having a dip!

There are seasonal festivals of live music, street theatre and open air cinema interspersed with various fairs. One of the main festivals is Sâo Joâo on the 24th of June, when Tavira is decorated in paper flowers, host carnivals and processions with late night sardine- eating and street dancing!
