About the property

Large villa offering 1 to 8 bedrooms.

This beautiful villa offers a selection of one and two bedroom accommodation. Ideal for couples, families or large groups. Prices quoted on this website are for 1 and 2 bedroom accommodation but the whole villa can be rented for up to 16 people. Please enquire for prices.

This extensive property set in beautiful landscaped gardens with heated pool . A countryside location yet only a five minute drive from a blissful stretch of sandy beach at Meia Praia and from the shops, restaurants and nightlife in the lively and picturesque marina town of Lagos, with Palmares Golf Course also close by.

Very child friendly and safe with loads of grounds to explore.

Because this our home, it is clean, comfortable and very well maintained. The setting is an oasis of tranquillity from which to explore the many nearby attractions of Lagos, its coastline and stunning beaches.

The pool is heated from 1 April to 30 September. It measures 10m x 5m with a max depth 1.8m and is walled and fenced from the main garden making it child friendly. We think pool heating is essential, even in warmer months. Heating can be requested for an extra charge at other times of year.

The pool is surrounded by both terraced and grassed sunbathing areas with sun umbrellas, chairs and comfortable sun loungers from which to relax and enjoy the unspoilt surroundings and countryside views towards the Monchique hills.

There is also a shaded picnic area next to the pool which is ideal for outdoor dining. Beyond a rockery is the small orchard which contains a variety of trees including oranges, lemons, grapefruit, walnuts, pomegranate, plums and more. Pick your own when in season.

Quinta Bavaria benefits from a secluded location reached by a quiet road which continues towards the long sandy stretch of Meia Praia beach and the scenic Palmares Golf Course.

The property has secure electric gates with an access code inside which is a long driveway lined with trees, and plenty of parking space.

The 2.5 acres of land is well fenced and hedged and the property is surrounded by mature gardens and colourful flower boxes with a large area of lawn towards which all the terraces and patios face. The extensive lawn is ideal for ball games. Children love to play 'dodge the sprinklers' in summer.

We, Colin and Sue, the English owners, lovingly clean and maintain the property and grounds to a high standard. We are on hand to give advice, local information, carry out repairs when necessary and to make sure that you have everything you need to make your stay as relaxing and comfortable as possible. But if you don't need us, you won't see much of us after we have welcomed you to your holiday home.

Quinta Bavaria: Once Discovered, Never Forgotten.

Our aim is that you return.

Quinta Bavaria 8 Bedrooms - 16 People

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in these Apartments during August 2009 with our family, we must say that we found the apartments to be clean and comfortable and in a fantastic location.

If you want to have a peaceful, family holiday in a tranquil setting then this is the holiday for you. We would definitely recommend!

Colin and Sue were very hospitable and we look forward to staying there again soon!

Our Special PLace.

  • 5 of 5

We first found Quinta Bavaria in 2003 and have now holidayed there at least once every year (sometimes twice)since then. It is in a quiet peaceful location in the countryside but in easy reach of the fabulous Meia Praia beach and also Lagos town. The grounds are beautiful and extremely well kept with a lovely heated pool area with views towards the mountains.

The apartments are all spacious and comfortable with views over the gardens and some towards the mountains. We have stayed in three of the five apartments and have always had a wonderful time.

We came back from three weeks holiday in mid May 2009 and have already booked for three weeks again in May 2010.

It is indeed a SPECIAL PLACE.

Meia Praia
Car: recommended

The Western Algarve is still recognised as the unspoilt, quieter region of the Algarve.

Our local village is Odiáxere, about a 20 minute walk. It has a fish and veg market, a bakery, a couple of small grocery shops and a delightful monthly market where local farmers often trade cattle.

The countryside immediately surrounding the Quinta is a paradise for cyclists, birdwatchers and walkers. Meia Praia can be reached in 45 mins on foot, passing fish farms on the way (best by car in mid summer with beach gear!).

Lagos has tennis courts and an excellent municipal sports centre. Numerous watersports are available, plus boat trips to see dolphin in their natural environment or to see the beautiful natural grottos and caves all around Lagos. There are two waterslide parks and a visit to the Zoo Marine park is a must - swim with dolphins in a safe, controlled environment.

A short drive north-west through the picturesque countryside leads to the wild and rugged West coast where deserted, secluded beaches can still be found even in the height of summer.

A drive inland from Odiáxere through olive groves and eucalyptus trees leads to the crystal clear waters of the Bravura Dam. A trip to Monchique with its picturesque spa town takes about 45 minutes. Lagos Zoo is worth a visit.

Other Activities: Dolphin watching, boat trips, two water slide parks, bird watching, horse riding, scuba diving, watersports.

Golf: The scenic Palmares golf course with its links holes along Meia Praia beach and the three Penina golf courses are all just a few minutes away.
