Modern, rural 3 bed villa set in the hills of Tavira with stunning views down to the Atlantic Ocean.
We can sleep 6 across 3 bedrooms plus we can take 2 additional children on fold out beds so 8 in total.
Villa Figueira occupies an enviable hill top position providing breath taking views over the surrounding countryside down to the sea. A quiet, rural location where you can enjoy a relaxing holiday but are only a 15 minutes drive down to the local towns of Vila Nova de Cacela and Tavira.
Situated 45 minutes East of Faro airport, Villa Figueira is a perfect location for a relaxing pool holiday or as a base for exploring the surrounding Portuguese countryside as well as the Eastern Algarve and Southwest Spain. Take in the traditional Portuguese fishing village of nearby Tavira or the beautiful Spanish city of Seville is approx 1hr 15min drive along the main auto route. There is an abundance of golf courses in the area as well as beautiful beaches and wildlife in the Rio Formosa national park. The all year round climate and stylish design makes Villa Figueira the perfect base for a holiday.
Villa Figueira is located in the small village of Faz Fato which is situated 16km in the hills behind Tavira going over towards Vila Nova de Cacela. Although mainly a traditional Portuguese village many different nationalities have settled here and all enjoy spending time at "Oretiro Do Faz Fato" - the local bar and restaurant. This is a 2 min walk from the house and serves coffees or snack and meals including pastas, omelettes, steak, chicken and fish. For the more adventurous you can try rabbit, partridge broth, hare or wild boar! Further a field, a 10min walk away is Ronaldo's bar.
The supermarkets, bars and restaurants of Vila Nova de Cacela, Cabanas and Tavira are a 15min drive away.
Around Faz Fato are many beautiful walks and roads for cycling. Travelling this way you take in all the stunning countryside and views down to the sea. You may also come across the local wildlife - pools with wild turtles and we've even seen mongoose!

We enjoyed the house very much, we felt very welcome. The communication with Sally was great and very friendly and Kerry and Ian who take care of the place were also very nice. The house is very good taken care of, tastefully decorated, fully equipped, the pool and the deckchairs, all the different terraces and balconies, (we also loved all the channels on the tv), and everything you could possibly need was there. No lights at night, no traffic sounds.... just a lot of stars.... wonderful!
