About the property

Beautiful 3 bedroom villa with pool in tranquil location

Located 12Kms inland from Tavira, this beautiful villa offers panoramic views over the Santa Catarina Hills and beyond Tavira to the coastline. A perfect location away from any hustle and bustle but within a 25 minute drive to the Roman town of Tavira and the surrounding areas/beaches and within 10 minutes drive to local amenities in Santa Catarina.

The villa has 3 beautiful double bedrooms with rustic and antique furniture and 2 bathrooms. The master bedroom is ensuite and has French doors opening to its own private balcony. Also reached from upstairs is a south facing roof terrace with a built-in barbeque and plenty of space for dining or sunbathing.

Downstairs has two bedrooms either side of the bathroom. All bedrooms have built-in wardrobes and wooden shuttered windows and doors.

The living room and dining room are on split levels, leading to the pool terrace and are generous sizes with a large wooden dining table and comfortble sofas. There is English freeview satelite television, a DVD player and wireless internet connection provided. The kitchen leads to a pretty terrace with seating and barbeque area, with views out over the valley, a perfect breakfast spot!

Within the south-facing terrace there is a 10m x 5m pool accessed from the living room, with garden furniture and an outdoor shower.

There is an enclosed walled garden which can be accessed from one of the ground floor bedrooms and the pool area .

The property is accessed by a private, gated drive with ample parking space.

Surrounded by terraces and courtyards, within gardens and extensive private grounds, this property offers a perfect haven of privacy, unspoilt nature and quiet. A much loved 'home away from home' where we have taken in to consideration the essential elements for an ideal family holiday for all to enjoy!

The Quinta was restored in the late 1990’s retaining many original features and styles, it occupies a private position within 10,000 square metres of its own land.

The beaches within the county of Tavira can be reached within 25 to 35 minutes drive.

There are excellent golf courses within 25 to 40 minutes drive from the accommodation. The closest are Benamor, Quinta da Ria and Quinta da Cima, Monte Rei.

A car is definitely recommended. Car rental, taxi transfers and bicycle hire can be organized with local reputable firms in advance or by calling the local representative.
