Overview

About the property

3 bedroom villa with private pool in very quiet rural location.

Our house is a perfect location for a quiet and private holiday for family and friends. A wonderful get-away tucked in amongst the carob, almond and olive groves and citrus orchards with views over the countryside and out to the sea.

Casa Katerina has air conditioning in the living room. There are two double bedrooms, one of which has sliding double glazed glass doors leading out to the patio. The third bedroom has twin beds. All bedrooms have ceiling fans. There are two bathrooms in between the bedrooms. The kitchen is large and fitted and has its own entrance door to the patio. The living room is large and has a dining table, air conditioning and has plenty of seating. There is UK free view satellite television, a DVD player, CD and radio. Casa Katerina provides a wi-fi facility.

We can supply a cot, linen and high chair, charged at 20 euros per week. Please let us know if you have any other requirements.

Casa katerina offers all home comforts inside the house and outside patios all around the pool and barbeque area are perfect for dining and lounging in or out of the sun. Our mosaiced pool is 4 m x 8 m metres and has steps going down to the 1 metre shallow end through to the 2 metre deep end. A built-in barbeque is situated on the patio outside the kitchen door, along with tables and chairs.

The quaint village of Santo Estevão is 2.7km away from Casa Katerina, there is a popular local restaurant there and a mini supermarket.

The beautiful beaches of Ilha de Tavira, Barril beach and Fuzeta beach are reached within 20 minutes drive.

There are excellent golf courses within 20 to 30 minutes drive from the accommodation. The closest are Benamor, Quinta da Ria and Quinta da Cima, Monte Rei.

A car is recommended for this property, especially in the heat of summer…and for reaching all the beautiful and interesting places further afield. Car rental, taxi transfers and bicycle hire can be organized with local reputable firms in advance or by calling the local representative.

This is a family holiday home and is suitable for children.

All the accommodation is on one level though there are steps up to the house from the drive and down to the poolside, making Casa Katerina suitable for the elderly or less mobile.

To the rear of the house, approximately 40 metres away there is a neighbouring house. The accommodation and terraces are not overlooked.

The property is reached by 830 metres of country unmade road. There is off road parking just beside the house.

This is a typical, quiet countryside residence.

Ashtrays are provided for smoking outside the property.

Due to the possibility of guests being allergic to animal hair, we would rather not allow pets.

Arrivals are flexible, though we aim to keep bookings as close as possible. Departure is by 10am and arrival is from 2pm unless otherwise arranged.

We provide a once weekly linen and bathroom towel change including a clean of the bathrooms.

There will be some toilet paper and soap for arrivals and a hamper of beverages, with additional breakfast and snacks are provided for late arrivals.

Guests will be met at the villa, or otherwise informed where to locate the key and visited soon after arrival. We ensure a prompt and competent service from a team of property managers, who can be contacted at anytime.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Katerina. The surroundings, the silence, but still the closeness to Tavira was exactly what we were in search of and needed. Everything was clean and well managed. We are thankful for your commitment regarding our lost luggage. We liked to walk around in Tavira but the best place was Pago de Inferno, such a lovely place ”just around the corner”.

Quiet and idyllic setting and very private ...great if you are happy with being really remote

  • 4 of 5

We had a terrific stay with the villa delivering everything promised. You really do need a car and the road leading to the villa is narrow and basically a track which takes some getting used to particularly at night. Otherwise this is a perfect holiday getaway particularly if you enjoy a pool. The pool which goes from shallow to deep quite quickly was cleaned every couple of days which we really appreciated. Overall we thought the villa was quaint and had character …. others might think it is ready for redecoration. It was clean and tidy on our arrival and the change of linen and towels with a basic clean of bathrooms halfway through our stay was a nice touch. There is plenty to see and do in and around Tavira and we had great days out in Seville, Faro and at a number of the coastal towns. Do buy the toll pass as it cut journey times down considerably. The shopping in the Algarve outlet malls and venues was good and varied. While we enjoy cooking, the kitchen was well equipped, and we found the local produce and markets great we also found plenty of local places to eat which offered really good choice and were very reasonable - and always friendly and welcoming. We made attempts to speak Portuguese but found our phrasebooks and Apps worthless as the level of English spoken along with other languages was high - which put us to shame! Finally, the artisan ice-cream in around Tavira was excellent and it was worth going out everyday just to have an ice-cream fix.

Könnte besser werden.

  • 3 of 5

Wir kamen aufgrund Flugverspätung Samstags erst im Dunkeln an. In der Nähe des Hauses haben wir uns mehrfach verfahren, trotz Eingabe der Koordinaten ins Navi.

Die angegebenen Kontakte waren Telefon. nicht erreichbar. Haben es dann trotzdem nach 4 Versuchen gefunden. Bessere Ausschilderung? Vielleicht hätte man die Aussenbeleuchtung mal angelassen?

Im Aussenbereich kaum Schattenplätze. Kaffeemaschine defekt. Ein Bad nicht zu belüften.

Gut: Im Kühlschrank war das wichtigste zum Überleben schon eingefüllt.

The Portuguese call Tavira the 'prettiest town in the Algarve'. It is a medieval town built on either side of a river, which is spanned by a seven-arch Roman Bridge. Elegant 18th century houses border the Rio Gilao. Castle ruins overlook at least 30 churches. Tavira is renowned for its historical past. Recent excavations have discovered some important Phoenician and Moorish remains.

Faro airport is the nearest and can be reached by car in about 30 minutes.
