Overview

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday villa in Olhao region - Casa dos Zefiros

Sleeps 10. 12 on request. 5 en-suite bedrooms. Pool. Tennis court. Games room

One of the finest villas in the Eastern Algarve, this is set in its own grounds within the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve overlooked by an ancient Moorish watchtower. It is very well equipped with pool heating, air conditioning throughout and a private all-weather, floodlit, tennis court. There is also a music system, wireless internet and satellite TV. The beach is about 15 minute' walk and restaurants are also within easy walking distance. Boat trips, kayaking, kite surfing, horse riding, fishing and golf are just some of the activities nearby. Staying at the house, you can enjoy the large heated pool (14x7m approx) which has an electric cover. The games room has a full-size pool table and table tennis. The villa is also equipped with many family games including Boules, backgammon and chess. To the rear and west side of the villa is a vineyard. Although the villa is secluded, it is only one kilometre away from Fuseta. Video available on Website: http://casadoszefiros.com/

Further Details: Born of sea and sand, Fuseta is a fishing village with traditional square shared houses just a 30 minute drive from Faro airport. It offers, not only a golden sandy beach on the lagoon with warm waters in which to swim and snorkel, but also mile upon mile of white sand on the island of Armona, just a few minutes away by ferryboat. Locally caught and barbecued seafood, clams cooked in the traditional Portuguese way, beef cooked on a hot stone and monkfish kebabs are just a few of the many delicious dishes served in local restaurants all within easy walking distance of the apartment.

Coast/Beach: The white sand beach is about 15 minute walk and restaurants are also within easy walking distance. Boat trips, kayaking, kite-surfing, horse riding, fishing and golf are just some of the activities nearby.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I think I've actually found paradise on earth. The views are beautiful, the house and pool stunning and the range of activities available (tennis, ping pong, pool table, walks, beach, swimming pool) second to none. The local restaurants gave us plenty of choice - particularly delicious fish - and a pretty square in town gave us ample opportunity to sit, drink coffee or a beer and people watch.

(The almond tart from the local bakery is heaven.) Definitely going again.

Perfection in Paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

We are 5 world travelers who demand the best and we got it at Casa dos Zefiros! From emailing with June to kissing Leonora good bye, it was perfect in every way! There was a gourmet meal to great us, 5 gorgeous bedrooms, a stunning pool and gardens, close to golf, beach....we were supposed to travel the whole algarve and could not leave! Leonora cooked us wonderful meals and we felt like royalty from the beginning to the farewell! Thank you June, Alvaro and Leonora for such a glorious visit!

Stunning!

  • 5 of 5

Three generations of our family (the youngest being six months old) spent a wonderful October half term at this beautiful villa - and we loved every minute!

Casa dos Zefiros is in the most amazing location overlooking the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve - I could never get tired of that stunning view - and is furnished exquisitely, yet it feels so comfortable and homely with everything one could possibly need!

We were met when we first arrived by Alvaro, the manager, who showed us around and was on hand should we have required anything - he was most welcoming. Then on our first night we had the wonderful meal Leonor, the housekeeper, had prepared for us - we felt thoroughly spoiled!

June, the owner, was a delight to deal with making the whole booking process very straightforward. She kindly arranged for a cot and high chair to be available and was caring and thoughtful throughout. She obviously takes great pride in letting out her villa and does all she can to make the stay a marvellous, happy and memorable experience.

We were very lucky with the weather (any rain falling at night!) and so were able to make good use of the pool, the tennis court and the barbeque. We enjoyed the walk into Fuseta (though parts are not really buggy-friendly) and were very taken with the main square where we enjoyed soaking up the atmosphere with a beer or two, walking along by the boats and the Mercado municipal where we bought supplies for our evening meals.

We all absolutely loved Casa dos Zefiros and felt very much at home there. In fact it was just what we all needed – somewhere to relax and re-charge the batteries in fantastic surroundings! It is definitely somewhere we would like to return to.

Wonderful week in paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Casa dos Zefiros was fantastic. The pictures on line were fine, but don’t really do justice to the magnificence beauty and amenities of this estate! We are a group of five couples from all over the United States who grew up together in Maryland. All of us are in our 70’s-80’s. Two couples now live in California; one couple in Colorado; one in Georgia and we have remained in Maryland.

Beginning twenty years ago we began to spend one week a year together. We have rented homes all over the US and Canada. Because this was our 20th reunion, we opted to venture into Europe, and we chose Portugal for this years “trip.”

This home was all we could imagine and more. All the bedrooms were beautiful with very comfortable beds. The kitchen had every possible piece of cooking equipment that you could imagine. Leonora the housekeeper was superb and prepared two meals for us, both of which were fantastic. Alvaro the manager answered the very few questions we had.

The owner, June, was extremely easy to work with in completing our reservations and stay.

Would we recommend this home to our very best friends? YOU BET WE WOULD!! If you want the proverbial “heaven on earth “go to Casa dos Zefiros and see for yourself!

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a fabulous holiday in Casa dos Zefiros.

We spent a long time reviewing villas in Portugal before we made our choice and it was well worth the effort - the description content is totally accurate.

This villa has everything you need for a wonderful family holiday (or a group of friends). The pool is a good size and perfect temperature - good for younger children as well as adults.

We had a delightful meal left for us on our first evening which made it very easy to settle in and the sparkling wine mentioned in an earlier review was a great advantage.

Tastefully furnished and set in beautiful gardens with wonderful views made it difficult to leave on any day - we took the opportunity to have meals cooked for us on a couple of occasions which were excellent and very reasonably priced.

The team here cannot be faulted for their courteous and warm service - nothing was too much trouble.

We very much hope to return again and cannot recommend highly enough - 5 stars plus!!

Born of sea and sand, Fuseta is a fishing village with traditional square shared houses just a 30 minute drive from Faro airport. It offers, not only a golden sandy beach on the lagoon with warm waters in which to swim and snorkel, but also mile upon mile of white sand on the island of Armona, just a few minutes away by ferryboat. Locally caught and barbecued seafood, clams cooked in the traditional Portuguese way, beef cooked on a hot stone and monkfish kebabs are just a few of the many delicious dishes served in local restaurants all within easy walking distance of the apartment.

Golf: 20 minutes drive from the villa are the spectacular sister courses of Quinta da Cima and Quinta da Ria. Whilst they sit comfortably with each other, and enjoy the same clubhouse and management, each course has its own distinctive character. Quinta da Cima is the longer at nearly 7000m. It is a championship styled course. Its undulating terrain, constant surprises, (the 14th and 15th through the orange groves), trying to avoid the charming (but ball enticing) cascading streams, not to mention the 2 lakes that are waiting to capture your score on the last three holes, make this a unique golfing experience. Quinta da Ria, although a little shorter, is perhaps more stunningly beautiful, with some of the holes playing above the Ria Formosa lagoon. Man-made lakes keep the golfer’s interest focused. Within easy driving distance are Quinta do Lago, Vale do Lobo, San Lorenzo, Pinheiros Altos, Vallamoura, Villa Sol, and many other.
