Nous avons passé 2 semaines merveilleuses à la Casa dos Ventos: maison magnifique aux grands espaces, terrasse immense offrant un panorama époustouflant sur la campagne et sur la mer. Les photos de l'annonce sont en dessous de la réalité. 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!
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.
