Includes 20 individual travel free per week for the boat Beach Cabanas (children is also free).
This charming and luxurious villa is located close to the beach, next to the Golden Club Resort in Cabanas de Tavira in the Algarve. It is a brand new house, furnished and equipped with the best materials and equipment, with 4 bedrooms (one en suite), enjoying a huge dining hall and a TV room with a magnificent tiled stove. All facilities (restaurants, bars, supermarket, bakery, coffee shops, etc.) are at a very short distance (2 minutes walk). The villa comprises an entrance hall leading to the living and dining room. The doors of the hall, open to the terrace directly overlooking the pool makes the delights of the most demanding. Also the kitchen luxuriously equipped overlooks the pool, for the clueless and garden. Still on the ground floor there is a bedroom with bathroom. On the first floor there is the master bedroom with private bathroom and two double bedrooms with bathroom. Both rooms have private balconies. Outside we have a fantastic pool, divided in zone of adults and children, surrounded by a large terrace with a beautiful pergola that defines the area of sun loungers, dining space and barbecue. The garden with its palm and fruit trees, accompany the old lady daughter and the well, which supplies irrigation water.
The delicious fish and seafood from the area of Tavira can be grilled on the barbecue, along Clueless and tasted the shadow of the fantastic pergola that covers part of the terrace, while children (and adults) take a dip in the pool!
Our family stayed at the villa for 2 weeks in July. Ana and Antonio travelled down from Lisbon to meet us and spoke excellent English. They explained everything in the villa and showed us around Cabanas in their car. The villa itself is approx one year old, so all the facilities worked well. Downstairs has an open plan kitchen, living and dining area with everything you should need. Quiet air con units are in all of the 3 bedrooms upstairs and in the living area, however, it is not in the 4th bedroom downstairs. It was very hot in July so this was a little problem for my parents even if they kept the door open to the living room. The best aspect of this villa is the pool - it is very large (the photos don't do it justice). it has a smaller, shallow part that is great for young children and a large, deeper part that you can still stand up in. Our 4 year old daughter, who is a competent swimmer, spent hours in there! The local pool maintenance guy was excellent. The villa also felt very secure as there were shutters on all the downstairs windows. Cabanas itself although seemed a very safe place. A couple of points are that the outside area is quite public - they have tried to screen the villa but it is in an elevated position on its own between two (admittedly quite quiet) roads. It is overlooked by some Golden Club apartments but this didn't really bother us. There is also no DVD player and no WiFi. Another slight problem was the steep, spiral staircase that made it difficult for carrying our baby up and down and for moving heavy suitcases. The walk to the beach boat transfers (75 cents pp) was also further than we thought especially with small children in the heat - they are hoping to get a free pass for next year. Cabanas beach when there however, is fantastic and there is a restaurant and a bar but I'd recommend taking your own supplies with you as quite expensive.
Cabanas is a relaxing place with a superb boardwalk overlooking the Ria de Formosa. Many excellent boat trips to do. There is lots of wildlife and it's great for rock pooling, hundreds of crabs! We BBQed a lot but all the restaurants we went to were of excellent quality and very reasonable - Sabores de Ria and Mariscos & Petiscos recommended. Quasi bar also good - 2 for 1 drinks between 7-8pm! There is an ok Spa supermarket and a good butchers, fish mongers, chemist, etc. A large Continente supermarket is in Tavira. Beware - lots of mosquitoes! A fab holiday, would definitely recommend.
