About the property

The Villa is situated in a nature-sanctuary with beautiful views.

Only 5 minutes drive from the beautiful historic town of Tavira, with its river, churches, art galleries, restaurants, bars and supermarkets. The nearest beaches are Barril, Fuzeta, Tavira Island and Cabanas, the nearest is approx. 10 minutes drive. Tavira Island has been voted one of the top 10 in the world for families! All of the beaches are on the 'Ria Formosa' nature Reserve and are thus very clean with excellent facilities.

Places of interest include local east Algarve villages and small towns, such as Sao Bras, Villa Real de Sto. Antonio, Castro Marim and further afield, Mertola, Alzejur, Serpa and Beja in the Alentejo.

From this property it is easy to take a day trip to Spain. The lovely border town of Ayamonte is not far by car (only 20 minutes), and once there you can sample the delights of another country, including wine, tapas and excellent shopping. For more adventurous the vibrant city of Seville is approx. 90 minutes away.

Nearby there are three very good small restaurants serving excellent reasonably priced meals.

This is a perfect accommodation for golfers wishing to sample the excellent courses situated in the Eastern Algarve. Within a 20 km ratios there are 7 courses to choose from. Benamor and the 2 Quintas (Ria and Cima) are the most popular and can be reached within several minutes. The prestigious new course of Monte Rei designed by jack Nicklaus now has its first 18 holes open. Only 10mms further on towards Spain, the challenging course of Castro Marin along with its famous country club comes highly recommended and just across the border are the Costa Esuri and Quinta do Vale courses now growing in popularity.

beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many villas over the last 15 years in Portugal and I believe this villa has gone to the top of my best list! The owner has equipped this villa with a lot more than one normally gets in a holiday rental. The villa was spotless, well furnished and situated in a gorgeous location.My only criticism is that I found the pillows very uncomfortable, sorry about this complaint because otherwise I think the villa deserves 10/10

Wonderful villa, great vacation

  • 5 of 5

From reading the previous reviews our expectations were high, but we were not disappointed! Quinta Cavalo Branco is a very spacious villa, both inside and out, and comes fully equipped with everything you need to enjoy your stay.

At this time of year (November) it´s warm during the day but quite cold at night, so we were very glad of the large wood-burning space heater in the main living room (wood is supplied).

Perfect location for sightseeing and only a short trip to explore the coastline. We also managed to get in a trip to beautiful Seville. We were able to find everything we needed in the supermarket nearby and wonderful fresh fish in the local fish market.

If you are looking for a high quality, well equipped property in a quiet location but close to all the amenities and Algarve attractions then I cannot recommend this property enough.

We were very impressed with this villa. Very clean and comfortable and in a great location. It is only 5 mins drive to Tavira.

The pool and the garden area at the back of the villa was lovely, with a BBQ and covered dining area.

We would highly recommend this villa!

The best relaxing holiday ever

  • 5 of 5

This villa is amazing with everything you could possible need and more. This villa is set in an amazing location with beautiful views and only a short drive from Tavira. Tavira has many lovely restaurants and bars. The property was extremely clean and beautifully decorated. The kitchen was very well stocked with every gadget, utensil you could possibly need and plenty of glassware, crockery and cutlery. The bedrooms were very comfortable with fantastic ensuite facilities. Outside area are beautiful, great pool, comfortable sun Loungers, and lots of outside seating.

We have already re booked our stay for next year and will be recommending to everyone.

Wonderful location and superb villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday and got home safely - the villa was superb. It was home from home. The villa is comfortable, well furnished, spacious, in a very quiet location with beautiful views. Tavira is only 5 Minutes away.

This was a perfect unwinding holiday. Batteries well and truly recharged.

We would recommend this villa without hesitation

EXCELLENT Villa in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a stay at this excellent villa. It is in an ideal location, spacious and immaculate with all the facilities you require. We would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to visit the area.

The pool is the perfect size to do a few lengths or take a dip to cool off. The BBQ was frequently used to cook fresh food purchased from the local market. The owners have gone to Great lengths to provide maps showing the best beaches, restaurants and supermarkets which were very useful.

Thanks for a great week at your Villa near Tavira, it was wonderful
