About the property

2 bedroom Villa

Ceu Azul – meaning Blue Sky is exactly what you imagine! A bright, sunny villa with views you will never forget. Situated in Pinheiro, on the Ria Formosa Nature reserve, a rare, secluded and unspoilt spot on the Eastern Algarve. The nature reserve boasts many rare varieties of bird life and here you will find them in your garden! Waking up to the sound of the sea and birds chirping in this special part of the Eastern Algarve, many of our guests do not wish to leave and return time and time again to Ceu Azul. At the bottom of the garden a walkway and cycle route along the lagoons edge leads you west along the salt pans to Fuseta and East towards the stunning beach of Barril. Along the lagoons edge a short walk from Ceu Azul is a fabulous fish and seafood Restaurant, Fialho, which is very family friendly and a joy to eat there at all times of the year… All of this right on your doorstep. It is a birdwatchers paradise and a family’s perfect holiday break, away from it all. From Ceu Azul you will be in easy reach of plenty of beaches and towns along the Eastern Algarve, All within a few minutes drive

Ceu Azul is an elevated 2 bedroom Villa, facing south making the most of the stunning lagoon and sea views. Steps lead up to the breakfast balcony and Villa. The kitchen is fully equipped including cool boxes for day trips away, should you be tempted to explore whilst staying here. An archway leads you into the light and airy south facing lounge, overlooking the ever changing hues of the lagoon and far reaching sea view. A wood burner makes the cooler months cosy and as enjoyable as the warmer months of the year. There si broadband WiFi Internt a TV and DVD.. At the rear of Ceu Azul you will find the shower room, double bedroom and twin room both air conditioned (heating in the cooler months). Both of which are light, colorful and cheerfully decorated.

The elevated balcony is superb for breakfast and has a very special view over the lagoon, sea and garden of Ceu Azul. The colorful garden attracts an amazing amount of local birdlife - past guests have recorded up to 250 different species during a week’s stay. You may even be lucky enough to see the ‘resident’ chameleon who lives in the garden. There is a patio area, with sun loungers, table and chairs, parasol and the all important barbecue. A great area for soaking up the sun and enjoying barbecues or after dinner drinks and conversations, when you stroll back from the local restaurant. Pick fresh lemons off the tree, fabulous in gin and tonic or squeezed over your favorite fish suppers.

We do hope we have thought of everything to make your stay at Ceu Azul an experience to be enjoyed over and over again.

Light airy Villa, with delightful garden set in the Ria Formosa
average rating of 4.6 based on 5 reviews

Great location/property but could do with updating

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely unique property in a very picturesque location. Because the living space is on the second storey the views are fantastic, just miles and miles of sea! The property is a great base for the Eastern Algarve and only 15-20 mins by car to great shops and places to eat with even better beaches closer. Whilst the property was adequate it could do with some updating in the kitchen especially. There were only 2 of us so plenty of space however if there were 4 adults staying it might be a little cramped. The patio gets the sun well into the evening so sun worshippers like us will be in their element. The garden is lovely and the smell of lemons at the end of the path was intoxicating! Watch out for the visiting cat with the loudest meow I've ever heard! You'd think there was a lion hiding in the bushes!!!

Superb place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Ceu Azul - Adele is a first class organizer and so helpful. The place is beautiful - peaceful, light, airy and has gorgeous views. We hired bikes (which she also arranged)and did some fantastic cycle rides along the coast. Everything was just lovely and we plan to go again asap!

Hier Urlaub zu machen war schön

  • 4 of 5

das Haus liegt in einer schönen ländlichen Gegend. Es hat uns gut gefallen.

Der Weg zum Strand und zu den Restaurants war nicht weit. Die Strände sind wunderschön. Die kleinen Städte haben uns auch gefallen. Wir haben uns meistens östlich von Faro aufgehalten. Westlich waren wir am cap vincente. Dort

sind auch wunderschöne Strände. Wir werden noch einmal wiederkommen, um noch mehr zu sehen.

Well maintained, clean and airy. Very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

A lovely cottage in a very quiet and peaceful area. Perfect for a base to travel the Eastern Algarve. The wildlife in the area is terrific. I would and already have recommended it to my friends. A great seafood restaurant is within walking distance (best to book in advance). You do however need a car as there are no shops within walking distance.
