About the property

3 bedroom villa, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6, near beach, town and golf courses

Delightful villa in the Algarve set in it's own garden, with private pool just a few minutes from the beach and from 6 splendid golf courses: 'Benamor' 'Quinta da Ria', 'Quinta de Cima', 'Castro Marim', 'Monte Rei' and 'Quinta do Vale' The villa is a few minutes walk from the village of 'Cabanas' where you can find restaurants, cafes, supermarkets and all you might need. The villa is fully equipped and very comfortable. The ground floor comprises a large lounge-dining room which leads via two large patio doors to two large terraces one of which overlooks the private swimming pool set in a lawn garden with a BBQ. The terrace has sofas and dining furniture, perfect for al fresco dining on the warm Algarve evenings. Also on the ground floor there are two large twin bedrooms, one bathroom and a completely equipped kitchen. Upstairs there is a master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and a terrace overlooking the garden. An ideal place for sun, beach, golf and fish lovers!

The Eastern Algarve: The Eastern Algarve is considered to be the most picturesque part in the Algarve. The Ria Formosa Natural Park is host to a large migratory bird population and is just a few minutes walk from the villa. The Portuguese town of Tavira only about ten minutes by car is known as the most beautiful town in the Algarve and recommended for its historical past, Roman architecture and 37 churches. Throughout the year there are music events and festivals and many more activities across the whole Summer. Tavira also has a fabulous daily market where you can buy fish straight off the boats and meat, fruit and vegetables from the local farmers.

Location: Cabanas is 30 minutes drive from Faro airport and only 30 minutes drive to the Spanish border. So, if you wish you may easily take a day trip to Spain whilst you are there!. In Cabanas you will experience a relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings in an authentic Portugal!

Beaches: Tavira's coast is integrated in the Natural Park of Ria Formosa, a protected area which is characterized by having a high biological productivity and diversity of habitats. Tavira has a coastline measuring over 18 km long, comprising the islands of Tavira and Cabanas, which are part of the Ria Formosa barrier islands' system. Cabanas' island is the smallest of the islands within the Ria Formosa Natural Park. It is 70 meters wide and 7 km long (variable figures), providing an excellent choice for anyone who enjoys a quiet and lesser frequented beach. This golden beach, full of shells and a warm turquoise sea is located in front of Cabanas' village, land of fishermen. Cabanas beach has been distinguished with the Blue Flag Award since 1989 and it has equipment and infrastructure services available to visitors. To get there you take a fishermen's boat across the Ria Formosa for a few minutes. There are other magnificent beaches nearby, all easily accessible by car.

Excellent Property & Location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 17 days in this delightful villa. The location, in a quiet mainly residential area and only 5 minutes walk from the waterfront meant almost everything was at our fingertips.

The villa itself is large and airy with plenty of room for relaxation, (WiFi TV, DVD, etc etc all available if required) Everything spotlessly clean and well looked after.(The photos are real)

The master bathroom has recently been modernised to and I understand that other modifications will follow when possible.

The swimming pool is absolutely fantastic and warms up nicely in the sunshine. (Regularly maintained as are the gardens)

Could go on and on extolling the qualities of Coco Loco and

Would Highly Recommend to anyone thinking of visiting Cabanas

Fabulous family villa with glorious outside space

  • 5 of 5

Vivenda Coco loco is in a fantastic location in a quiet road, but within easy walking distance of the beach and shops. It is tastefully decorated and maintained to an excellent standard. It also has a well equipped kitchen! The terrace is a truly great space to relax and entertain. We have been to Cabanas many times and this is the nicest property we have stayed in to date. Highly recommended !😎

Lovely villa with everything on your doorstep

  • 5 of 5

Lovely villa in a very good location, 5 minutes walk from restaurants, bars and shops but set in a very private, quiet residential area. Lovely pool area and garden which was tended every day by a gardener and a pool man twice a week.Villa was very spacious with a lovely master suite opening onto a large sun terrace on the first floor.Unlimited wifi, which has just been introduced this year, was very welcome as we had two teenagers in tow. Beach very easy to get to by boat costing 1.5 euros and journey only taking 5 minutes. Lovely beach bar at the beach selling snacks, cocktails and milkshakes. We took two day trips to Tavira during our fortnight's stay costing 10 euros each way by taxi. Lovely town with interesting shops, nice restaurants and historical sights and churches. Cabanas has a number of very good restaurants- in fact we ate out every night and didn't have one bad meal. Particular highlights were: Restaurante Noelia & Jeronimo (sort of fine dining and you have to book well in advance), the Jolly Sailor ( lovely outdoor courtyard garden), A Sabores da Ria ( No 1 on tripadvisor. Go for the steak on the stone and ask for a table outside), The Europa ( don't be put off by the outside and decor-fantastic fresh fish) and O'Escalho ( next to the church, very near the villa and more a bar with food but the food is delicious!). We had a lovely relaxing holiday and we will definitely return.

Brilliant Holiday in Coco Loco

  • 5 of 5

We have not long returned from a 2 week holiday in Cabanas staying in Coco Loco and wish to book the villa for next year. The house was clean, airy, and bright. Upstairs was newly renovated with a very modern en-suite. We had two toddlers and all our needs were catered for ie cots, high chairs. The pool and gardens were the highlight of our holiday. Every day was spent in the pool, on the sun loungers or having barbeques on the patio/ terrace.

On the last week of our stay very fast internet wifi was installed that gave us unlimited internet which was a god send with two small toddlers.

Perfect villa in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Villa Coco Loco. The villa itself is immaculate with its own private pool and lovely garden area for relaxing in. The master bedroom with ensuite bathroom is newly renovated in a contemporary style and has a balcony overlooking the garden. Downstairs there are two twin bedrooms, which are both a reasonable size and have fitted wardrobes. Our children chose the room with the 'walk in wardrobe' which provided a lot of entertainment for hide and seek games! The open plan lounge/dining room is very comfortable with ample space for 6 guests and very tastefully furnished. The kitchen is a good size and also has an additional small table. There were plenty of kitchen utensils and crockery provided, plus a dishwasher (essential as no one wants to wash up on holiday!) There is also an outdoor table that seats six . All rooms had air conditioning, although we didn't need it for our visit. The location of the villa is just 5 minutes walk from the heart of the lovely town/village of Cabanas but the villa itself is very peaceful and quiet - we were not disturbed by any noise from the surrounding residents at all. A small fishing boat will take you over the Ria Formosa for 75c per person to the stunning beach, which was amazingly uncrowded considering it was half term week. There is a small cafe and toilets at the beach, and sun shades and umbrellas are available to hire. On windy days, the waves were perfect for body boarding or kite surfing and other water sports for the more adventurous. Cabanas has a great selection of places to eat, ranging from snack bars/cafes to a la carte restaurants, pizzerias and gelatarias, as well as a lovely selection of shops selling beach items (towels, swimsuits, hats etc) and tasteful souvenirs. We loved Cabanas so much we spent most of our time there, although we did venture to Tavira (only a 10 minute drive away) one evening, which is a beautiful town, and Cachela Vehla just down the coast to the east of Cabanas, which has stunning views of the Ria Formosa. We also visited Praia do Barril - a beach to the west of Tavira which is reached by a little train (which all the family enjoyed!) Teresa, the villa owner, and Margarida, the housekeeper who met us at the villa on our arrival, were both extremely helpful and friendly. In fact, we found the Portuguese to be extremely friend and helpful - we shall definitely be returning!

The Eastern Algarve is considered to be the most unspoilt and picturesque part in the Algarve. The town of 'Tavira', only about ten minutes by car from 'Cabanas' is known as the most beautiful town in the Algarve and recommended for its historical past, Roman architecture, 38 historic churches and its four beautiful bridges spanning the Gilão river which divides the town and allows for spectacular riverside views of the medieval town and river life. Numerous cafes and restaurants line the river, public gardens and quiet squares offering an array of traditional patisseries and fresh fish restaurants. The castle walls border the medieval centre of the town, from where you can enjoy a fantastic view of the rooftops of the town leading to the estuary and out into the Atlantic. 'Tavira' also has a fabulous daily market where you can buy fish straight off the boats and fruit and vegetables from the Algarve local farmers.

Golf: Near the villa there are several splendid golf courses overlooking the country side and the Ocean:


QUINTA DE CIMA AND QUINTA DA RIA, golf complex with two courses - 18 Hole Par 72

QUINTA DO VALE GOLF RESORT, designed by Severiano Ballesteros - 18 Hole Par 72

MONTE REI GOLF CLUB, a very prestigious golf course designed by Jack Nicklaus - 18 Hole Par 72

CASTRO MARIM GOLF, a luxury complex being the Grouse Course, the Atlantic Course and the Guadiana Course. An excellent combination of 2 times 18 holes can be played from these 3 courses.

They are all a challenge to both the novice as well as the more accomplished golfer.

There are a number of other golf courses in close proximity along the Algarve and we can, under request, provide a list not only from the South of Portugal but from the South of Spain too.
