Tavira being the main shopping area of the East with it's new out of town shopping mall opening last year, here you have Continente Food shopping, Boutiques, Clothes shops and a large food court. Or you may opt for a stroll around the old town of Tavira with its cobbled streets and quaint shops.

The main streets are traffic free zones and have many shops selling all manor of things. Take a walk over to the marina and across the river you will see Ayamonte in Spain. Vila Real is well worth a visit and is a personal favourite.

Beaches ( A couple of recommendations ): Manta Rota is the closest beach to the villa and lies a few minutes drive away. Having been extensively re-developed recently, Manta Rota has large area car park area's that in turn are linked by beautiful wooden board walks to the beach.

The beaches are wide, golden and endless.

Pedras del Rey , Barril Beach - Linked across the Ria Formosa the choice is an old steam train that doubles up as a goods train for the restaurants by the beach, which chug's along at a snails pace or a 2 km walk up through the Formosa to the beach, if you walk, take your time to spot the hermit crabs if the tide is out or smell the fresh pines as you meander through the tree's towards the beach.

Enjoy a wonderful few hours on the beach collecting all manner of shell's that have washed up on the shore, then retreat to one of the low key restaurants for a wonderful lunch before either returning to the beach or heading back to the villa.

Absolutely blown away by this stunning Villa

  • 5 of 5

We are a family party of 11 ( over 3 generations) who stayed for a week at this fabulous villa at the end of May/ beginning of June 2016. I was a bit nervous because I've never booked this kind of holiday before but I needn't have worried Helen was very helpful right from the initial booking to the point where she very promptly returned our £800 bond in full. The directions that she provided from the airport were great.

Helen and Graham have spared no expense on their home on the Algarve, all the fixtures, fittings, furnishings and decoration are of the highest standard. There is plenty of crockery, cutlery, linen etc to ensure a comfortable stay and plenty of space to ensure that we didn't get under each other's feet.

We really couldn't fault anything; there is a fabulous kitchen complete with super sized fridge/freezer and dishwasher which was a must for when we decided to eat in, paella night and BBQ night were great; the games room with pool table, darts board and table football was a hit with the youngest to the oldest members of our party and the salt water swimming pool was well worth the extra payment to have the heating on. There are cleverly planned separate areas throughout the 'open plan' Villa that enable folk to have their own space without feeling isolated. All the bedrooms are spacious and plenty of bathrooms means no there is no queuing for the shower!

The grounds are beautiful and well kept, the 'pool man' came during our stay to clean the pool; all areas of the Villa inside and out were very clean and well maintained. The local area is very accessible (you do need a vehicle) but supermarkets, beaches and great restaurants are all within a short drive. The town of Tavira is just up the road and well worth a visit. The 2 lady golfers in our party got on the Internet (better speed then we get at home) when we arrived and found a course within 15minutes drive and were able to book a couple of games and hire all the gear very easily.

I can't recommend this Villa highly enough we had the most fantastic time and the weather was great which was a big bonus. I would certainly book this holiday again funds allowing, every member of our party agreed they would like to return given the chance. I feel that despite being pretty gushing about this gorgeous home I've not even begun to describe how wonderful Eden really is. Thank you Helen and Graham for sharing your beautiful home

We were a family of 6 who spent 2 weeks on the Algarve and for one of those weeks we had the pleasure of staying at 'Eden'.

We paid quite a large deposit and when we arrived I realised why, as the quality of the house and its fixtures and fittings were of a very high standard. The agents met us with the keys and were available 24/7. This is a perfect place for privacy as there are no neighbours and a lovely outdoor area with a salt water pool which leaves you feeling very refreshed.

The house was huge and would comfortably sleep 12. I could not fault the interior. We noticed there was a charge for Air con so we decided not to use it and even though it was very hot outside, we found we didn't need it as there was usually a breeze.

The area of Manta Rota was a good place to explore the Algarve and beyond. We even did a day trip to Seville as it was an easy 90 min drive to the centre of town with plenty of parking buildings available. We also visited the nearby towns of Tavira and Faro. Tavira has a very large good supermarket with lots of fresh fish and meat. The beach was less than a 10 min drive away and there is a morning market from 7am which sells great pastries, fruit and veg and freshly caught fish.

There is not much within walking distance so a car is a must if you want to do any sightseeing. We left the house tidy and had no problem with the deposit being returned in full. A great stay. Thank you very much!

Villa Eden - a perfect holiday retreat

  • 5 of 5

We returned from a two week holiday in July and had a wonderful time.

Altogether we were four families with children aged from 10-15.

When we first arrived and opened the front door to see in the flesh what we had previously seen in photos we were absolutely delighted. In fact we were surprised that Helen was actually renting out such a beautiful home to strangers!

Eden is a home that has been very carefully designed and provides excellent accommodation for up to 12 people. The furnishings are to a very high standard and it genuinely lacks nothing. You want a 50" plasma to watch tv as a family... It's got it. Perhaps a laptop with wifi or maybe somewhere to dock your IPod and play your music, yes there's one in the dining room, sitting room and games room!

As a group you can dine outside on the patio, in a lovely dining room or perhaps a bar supper around the lovely granite island in the kitchen. Should you need air conditioning it's available for £150 per week but despite it being pretty hot we decided against it as if you keep the doors closed the house remains reasonably cool and if you get too hot just open he doors to let the local winds cool you down.

The house is big enough to have your own space to read a book, listen to music, watch tv etc while the kids can play all day in the pool, games room (this has TV, Wii, Table Football, Pool Table, Darts) or perhaps some table tennis in the garage.

Anyone with a love of cooking will be spoiled with the beautiful and spacious kitchen with big ovens, dishwasher and a massive fridge/freezer. Alternatively you can BBQ by gas or by coal... The choice is yours. There's even an outdoor fridge so you don't have to bother walking to the kitchen when you run out of chilled beer etc.

The instructions make it easy to get to and there are nice local towns only minutes away along with beautiful beaches. You will need to hire a car to get about but they are fairly cheap. If you play golf then you will be spoiled with choice with the nearest almost on your door step.

So overall this is a cracking villa. I asked my guests whether they had any complaints or ideas but like myself thought it was perfect.

Price wise I feel it is good value and significantly cheaper than a similar property in Quinta, Vilamoura etc.

Enjoy your stay

Car: necessary

Eden is set in the foothills of the Caldeirao Mountain Range, 800m from the Monte-Rei golf Resort and minutes from the endless beaches of the Eastern Algarve.

Just 10 minutes by car you will find the historic town of Tavira who's history dates back to 2000BC, a must to have a meal in one of the myriad of restaurants overlooking the old Roman bridge, or a stroll through one of the original quaint cobbled streets.

Minutes from Eden is the Blue flag beach of Manta Rota with its golden beaches that stretch for miles, this is the only beach that has direct access as the Ria Formosa Nature reserve stops just before Manta Rota.

Castro Marim lies just 10 minutes from the villa and sits on the banks of the Guadiana river and is still dominated by the castle and fort built in the 10th century.

A little further you will find Vila Real built around a traditional town square with orange trees and elegant 18th century town houses. Look directly over the river and you will see Ayamonte in Spain.

Golf: An abundance of great golf courses lie just a short distance from the villa. Needing little introduction Monte - Rei has risen meteorically in standings to be the No 1 golf course in Portugal and number 10 in Europe. A course not to be missed that oozes class from the moment you enter the gates. Expensive it is but well worth the challenge to the avid golfer. Afterwards your game spoil yourself with a drink in the sumptuous clubhouse or a meal in the Jamie Perez restaurant.

Quinta de Ria and Quinta de Cima are a 6 minute drive from the villa, Ria is built very close to the Ria Formosa and affords spectacular views from certain holes, it is moderately long and has plenty of well placed water hazards. Cima is considered the championship course of the two, is long with plenty of key bunkers and undulating greens.

Quinta do Vale - Built recently and overseen by Sevi Ballesteros the course has been carved out in a natural valley that has breathtaking scenery through to the Guadiana River and onto the landmark bridge that separates Portugal from Spain. A superb challenging course that you will not be disappointed with.
