You are free to enjoy the outdoors in our garden. For you, we have created a covered terrace at the front door. Also among the Carobtree you can sit in the shade. The barbecue on the large terrace is of course also be used.
Casa Nuvem Azul (the two apartments and the house) has grown in the course of time with love. The Portuguese character of the property is therefore preserved. As there are throughout the house ST Catherine floor tiles, baked in a neighboring village. The terraces in front and behind the house are covered with former Portuguese tiles.
Around the house is beautiful: in the garden are huge succulent plants, olive trees, carob trees, oleanders ..... There is a water collection tank with frogs ...
Beyond begin the house towards the sea (7 km), the orange groves and the hills to the north (for walking).
The house stands at the edge of ST Estevao, which is near Tavira, 30 min. East of Faro towards Spain (also 30 min. Drive). The village is in a part of the Algarve that is less touristy than the portion west of Faro.
ST Estevao is a village with two small supermarkets, a pie-shop where you can drink coffee, café / restaurant, a pharmacy, a church and an ATM.
Off the coast are small islands, because you can really go to the beach.
The area between the islands and the shore like our Wadden.
There is mined much salt and the salt pans are often flamingos and other birds.
Every village has its own boat connection with an island.
We like to go to Barril. You can choose to walk or 1500m to lay off the beach on the island with a small train. It's the same train that has ever been used by the tuna fishermen.
Tavira is a relaxed city with many shops, supermarkets, restaurants, churches, beautiful architecture. It is built along a river.
Also Ayamonte, right on the border with Spain, is a very beautiful city. It is immediately apparent how different people and it's streetscape.
Een heerlijke week gehad in een schitterend sfeervol Portugees huis, dat smaakvol is ingericht en waar het aan niets ontbreekt. We hebben genoten van het 's morgens op een van de terrassen ontbijten in de zon met uitzicht over de enorme tuin en het 's avonds barbecuen.
Met de fietsen die je ter plekke kunt huren hebben we mooie tochten gemaakt, o.m. naar het strand en naar Tavira.
Sta Estevao ligt dicht bij de Spaanse grans en wij hebben van de gelegenheid gebruik gemaakt om een dagje naar Sevilla te gaan, ca 2 uur met de auto.
Als je echt tot rust wilt komen is dit dé plek. Bewoonde wereld en strand in de buurt, maar het massatoerisme op veilige afstand.
