About the property

Perfect For Couples And Families Searching For A Quiet Retreat

Casa dos Ventos is a welcoming 3 bedroom house with spectacular countryside and sea views towards Tavira and the Spanish coast. Equidistant from Spain and Tavira, Casa dos Ventos offers the tranquility of the ‘Serra’ and opportunities to visit beautiful towns and white sand beaches within 20 minutes drive. Perfect for couples and families searching for a quiet retreat.

Casa dos Ventos is surrounded by terraces and perfect for catching the best of the Algarvean sunlight or relaxing in the shade of the covered south facing patio, whilst enjoying the spectacular views. The 300m2 garden area offers plenty of seating and slopes down to Mediterranean wild herbs and shrubbery.

The décor is an inviting and comfortable combination of Scandinavian antiques and bohemian textiles. Large rooms with patio doors and high ceilings allow for plenty of light and mobility.

All rooms lead from the spacious hall with its table and seating area. There are two large south facing bedrooms with sea views and access to patios. The third bedroom has a large east facing window, also with sea views. All three bedrooms have wooden floors and have twin beds which are joined to make comfortable double beds or can be separated.

Glass doors from the hall lead to the kitchen, dining and living areas, which are on split levels. The traditional and fully equipped kitchen has a walk in pantry and a patio door leading to the north side of the house and private parking.

There is plenty of space for entertaining at the dining table, overlooking the large living area. Armchairs and sofas surround the open fire place in the living room, still leaving plenty of space for playing! Open patio doors in summer integrate the outdoor lifestyle with the coolness of the interior.

Sun loungers and wooden reclining chairs deck the terraces and the covered terraces provide plenty of shaded seating areas, tables and chairs are available.

There is a small bar in Faz Fato village, 2km away. A good local restaurant is 6km away at Corte Martins. Vila Nova da Cacela has more shops and restaurants and is 11km away and on route to beaches and larger towns.

The beautiful white sandy beach of Manta Rota is located just 13km away, and the spectacular beach at Praia Verde is 14km away.

There are excellent golf courses within 6km to 12km from the accommodation. The closest is Monte Rei.

Car rental is essential and can be organized with local reputable firms in advance or by calling the local representative.

Apart from the two steps leading down from the dining room to the living room, Casa dos Ventos is all on one level.

The house is situated in a small hamlet of houses, yet it is not overlooked.

The property is accessed by tarmac roads leading to the small private gravel drive up to the house and grounds.

Bem Parece is a quiet and scarcely populated area of the Algarvean hinterland.

Le service est excellent: maison propre, lits parfaitement fait, serviettes bain et plage à disposition...et l'eau et la bouteille de vino verde pour vous accueillir! Merci pour ces vacances innoubliable dans ce lieu magique et merci aux propriétaires de nous avoir confié leur maison!

A Welcoming 3 Bedroom House With Spectacular Countryside And Sea Views

Nice location, nice house, but not great for families with small children off-peak

  • 4 of 5

The property is in a great location - in rolling hills about ten miles from Tavira and is set in nice secluded grounds. It's generally clean and well-kept and wouild make a great quiet summer holiday.

Unfortunately for us our stay coincided with unseasonably cold and wet weather; and the house is really hard to heat. The electric radiators are okay for heating up bedrooms, but the main dining/living room and kitchen area (which is huge) can only be heated using the log fire.

These heating problems are compounded by two major issues with the property. If using the electric heaters at the same time as other electrical equipment (including the oven and the water which comes from a well) the whole house's electricity tends to cut out. It's easy to turn it back on, but it's a surprising deficiency in a holiday property, and is quite irritating when it happens frequently. Also the log fire's chimney vents via (presumably) a heat exchanger of some sort into the living/dining room and into one of the bedrooms; unfortunately there must be a leak somewhere in the heat exchanger, because both rooms were becoming very smoky - for this reason we were unable to use that bedroom (fortunately we found that we didn't need to as our children can now share a room; but we'd have been quite upset otherwise.

Mère Nature fait des siennes

  • 4 of 5

Une température exécrable nous a accompagnés tout au long de notre semaine de vacances, soit la dernière semaine de février 2018.

Heureusement que Karin nous a bien approvisionnés en bois pour alimenter le foyer au salon ; car il a plu et a fait très froid.

La description de la maison correspond exactement à la réalité. Elle est parfaitement équipée et très spacieuse. Une route sinueuse nous monte jusqu’à la maison qui est située à 352 mètres d’altitude. La vue jusqu’à l’océan est spectaculaire.

Je recommande fortement Casa dos Ventos et je crois que notre séjour aurait été parfait s’il n’avait pas eu lieu à cette période de l’année.

L’agence JacarandaraHolidays, et spécialement Anne, ont été très efficaces lors des procédures de location.

Casa dos ventos faz justiça ao nome

  • 4 of 5

Muito acolhedora e agradável esta casa no começo da serra do Caldeirão com decoração muito confortável e prática. Salas muito espaçosas e cozinha funcional.

Local isolado e muito silencioso onde na noite o brilho das estrelas pode ser observado e apreciado em todo o seu resplandor.

A ida até à praia ou locais de consumo é fácil.

Gostamos e recomendamos

Un séjour formidable

  • 4 of 5

Une magnifique maison qui correspond parfaitement aux photos postées sur le site, confort et vue garantis, très bon accueil par des personnes souriantes et dévouées. Pas de magasins à moins de 10 km(de virages!!!!) donc un conseil n'oubliez rien ! Un endroit reposant et calme, idéal pour se ressourcer....

Une région aux décors magnifiques et diversifiée avec des gens chaleureux et accueillants.

A recommander sans hésitations.....

Cabanas is a tourist fishing village, an 8 km drive away from Tavira.

A pretty wooden promenade borders the small estuary, dotted with colourful fishing boats on one side and small houses, cafés and restaurants on the other. Across the river is the beautiful beach of Cabanas, a white sand island which links the natural archipelago that is part of the Ria Formosa National Park.

There are regular, small fishing boats that ferry people from the village to the Island in just a few minutes. The island is about 7 km long stretch of white sandy beach. During summer months there are seasonal beach cafés where you can buy refreshments.

On the main street of Cabanas there are plenty of bars and excellent sea food restaurants. During the summer there are traditional fishing festivals and craft markets with local bands playing Fado and Portuguese music and offering a really typical taste of the life in the Algarve.

Cabanas is very close to the golf course of Benamor and Quinta da Ria, which are both top quality courses with spectacular scenery.

A beautiful walk between the verdant countryside and the estuary will bring you to Fabrica, with its popular restaurant and river ferry crossing and further on to Cacela Velha. This highly picturesque white washed village is a reminder of how the Algarve must have looked half a century ago. Perched on a cliff top, this hamlet offers exhilarating views of the coast, wetlands and Oyster beds below.

Cacelha Velha hosts an annual Moorish craft festival and banquet during the summer.
