Wonderful accomodation in idyllic setting

  • 5 of 5

This was our second holiday at Casa Boa Vista and the villa has been upgraded (not that it required improving) by the addition of a third bedroom with en-suite and beautiful rooftop terrace with views of the hills and the sea. This is the most tranquil spot in the wonderful Portugese countryside for the most perfect romantic/relaxing holiday, while the towns and islands of Tavira and Olhao are only a short distance away and are fascinating to explore. the owner's father is available in the adjacent villa with a friendly welcome and advice and this property is very highly recommended for anyone wanting a perfect holiday away from loud tourist resorts.

A nice place to be in peace

  • 5 of 5

A very nice place a few km from the sea, in the middle of the mountains. Excellent views, quiet and peaceful. I can only recommend the Casa Boa Vista to all those who wish to stay away from trodden paths and busy/noisy tourist centers. Here you find the peace and authenticity that is very hard to find these days. To me: Portugal at its best!

We will definitely be back again.

We had a lovely stay at Casa Boa Vista - it is a beautiful cottage. Wonderful location, stunning views and very peaceful. The weather was perfect. We enjoyed the nice furnishings and comfort of the cottage and loved to have some UK t.v. as well. The garden, pool and terrace are wonderful! It was truly relaxing.

Highly recommended!

Toller Urlaub. Entspannung pur

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten einen traumhaften Urlaub.

Das Haus ist ein Traum. Sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Alles ist sehr hochwertig und gemütlich. Es fehlt an nichts. Sehr gründlich gereinigt. Sehr gutes Bett.

Der Blick in die Berge ist magisch. Der perfekte Ort zum erholen. Es herrscht absolute Ruhe auf dem Berg. Nach Tavira ist es nur 5 Minuten. Uns haben die empfohlenen Restaurants (im Haus liegt eine Liste mit Empfehlungen) sehr gut gefallen.

Insgesamt absolut super.

Lovely Cottage in peaceful rural setting - Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Boa Vista in June and a really relaxing week. The cottage is tucked away in the hills above Tavira. The views are amazing.

The cottage was very well equipped, we cooked most evenings and always had everything we needed. The property was very clean and tidy.

It was hard to leave the cottage but there are many things around the area to see - Tavira was gorgeous and unspoilt, true Portugal - and the beaches around were a joy - we loved Praja Verde in particular.

Tavira had many excellent restaurants - hard to choose from.

We hope to return next year.

Highly recommended.

A Lovely, Secluded Cottage in the Algarve

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic cottage in its own grounds and is ideal for those who like peace and quiet. The layout of the house is grab and the whole place was clean and well-equpped - it really felt like home-from-home.

The place is magical; the photographs don't really do the place justice. Located away from the main town which means it´s lovely and quiet but near enough to drive in every night to enjoy the restaurants & bars. There are also superb sandy beaches - from the house, another ten-minute drive takes you to Barril beach, where it´s possible to walk or ride a little train across the causeway to a sandy beach that stretches for miles.

The heating system is perfect, which is important in the winter.

This really is the place to get away from it all. Strongly recommended

Casa Boa Vista is situated on the top of a hill looking over the Asseca valley with breathtaking views on the hills and the sea.

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 mins 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, Vila 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 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 radius 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 10 kms further on towards Spain, the challenging course of Castro Marim 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.
