About the property

Beautifully situated villa with private pool and breath taking views

Helder is a charming casa with private pool, beautifully situated on a hill with breath taking views. The property offers three spacious terraces, a lounge gazebo and three bedrooms each with separate bathroom. One bedroom/bathroom has private access and terrace. This apartment could be used separately. An ideal destination for those who look for a unique place, close to all facilities East Algarve offers.

Rental reg. nr. 1307/AL.

Helder is fully equipped with an alarm/emergency system washing machine, a dish washer, satellite TV, DVD, air-conditioning, floor heating and a modern wood-burner. Helder also offers her guests free WiFi. Towels and bed linen are available, including beach towels.

Helder is an excellent choice for a stay all year round. When we furnished the house, we also had in mind guests that would stay longer periods. Helder offers hotel quality box spring beds and a large bathroom with tub.

A lot of people decide to hibernate in the Algarve. From October till March there are many cultural, sportive and social activities nearby. A quiet stay is possible, but a rich social life is also within reach.

Health care services are located in São Bras and Tavira. We have a multilingual contact person living at close distance available, should you need assistance.

Weekly cleaning and laundry services are optional.

We kindly ask our guests not to smoke inside the house. Pets are allowed after consultation with the owner.

Annemarie van Hekken purchased this villa in 2013

Why Annemarie van Hekken chose Santa Catarina da Fonte do Bispo

May 2013 we saw Helder for the first time and fell in love with the amazing view. We furnished the house in a modern style and equipped it with everything necessary to ensure a pleasant stay. Hopefully our guests are as enthusiastic as we are!

What makes this villa unique

* An ideal destination for those who love to spend some time in nature (Helder is close to the village situated in an ecologically protected area), not being isolated.

* Pool with a view

* Newly furnished, with natural materials

* Birds paradise

Lovely house

  • 4 of 5

Villa Helder is a lovely house with beautiful surroundings. Fantastic views and for those who like privacy and comfort a real treat. The property is clean, well maintained and clearly decorated with some extra love and care.

Enthusiastic and friendly owners and manager who love to help you out when necessary. Not suitable for those who like the buzz of a touristic city.

But for people with an eye for nature and country life in the Algarve highly recommendable.

Lovely place

  • 5 of 5

We had a great start of the new year in this fantastic house and area. We were with two small children (4 and 1) who enjoyed our stay just as much as we did. Although we were a little limited in our expeditions due to these little ones, we visites some beautiful beaches and interesting sites (such as Tavira).

In short: great place to have fun and relax.

Beautiful Views, Peace and Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a relaxing holiday away from the crowds, this is the ideal location - a secluded spot with gorgeous views, yet within a short driving distance from beaches and other popular tourist destinations (we loved Tavira and the islands). The house is very comfortable, very clean and perfectly equipped for 6.

We had a great a time and highly recommend !!!!

Thank you :)

Haus mit Meerblick

  • 5 of 5

Ein Paradies für Menschen die die Ruhe suchen! Die Übernahme hat am Anreiste perfekt geklappt. Die Betreuter Antonio und Rineke sind ausgesprochen freundlich und hilfsbereit. Man hat das Gefühl sehr willkommen zu sein.

Das Haus ist mit allem ausgestattet, was man für einen schönen erholsamen Urlaub braucht. Es verfügt über Heizung und Klimaanlage. Auch in der Küche sind alle Utensilien für die Zubereitung von Speisen vorhanden. Alle Räume sind schön eingerichtet und es gibt überall viel Platz.

Wir können dieses Haus jedem empfehlen, der Ruhe und Abgeschiedenheit sucht.

Wir kommen gerne wieder! Danke!
