Rustic, detached south facing villa set within lovely gardens, with a private swimming pool. The villa is perfectly situated within a peaceful location of Cabanas village, yet only walking distance from the nearby beach, It's also within easy walking distance of an excellent choice of restaurants and cafes and all other amenities. Comfortably spacious, this villa has a contemporary feel with lots of character with beautifully exposed beams throughout. The villa has an open-plan living and fully fitted kitchen area. The living area has a sofa bed and also features an open fireplace with a wood burning stove, ideal for winter rental. There is a spacious double bedroom and family bathroom. Adjoining the villa and accessed internally is a self-contained living and bedroom area with an en suite bathroom. This area consists 2 single beds with patio doors. Outside, there is a large terrace area overlooking the lovely gardens and swimming pool, with BBQ dining area, sun loungers and private car parking.
We had a very comfortable, relaxing stay at Villa De Mar in Cabanas. There was everything that we needed at the villa and it also had a pool, which made our stay even more enjoyable. That aside it is a short walk down to the beach, where you get on a boat and it takes two minutes to get across to the beach. The beach is absolutely stunning, with pure white sands, the boat trip on its own makes the journey quite exciting. In town there are quite a few restaurants and bars serving very fresh products. We ate at the Villa quite a bit as it has its own bbq so we bought our food from the local supermarket which was priced very very reasonably. We would very much recommend the Villa and Cabanas region as we believe that it is a hidden gem.
Totally enjoyed our weeks stay here. The villa was very clean and just how it looks in the pictures. It was equiped with everthing you needed. Situated at the end a cul de sac it was very quiet and relaxing. It is situated perfectly.3- 5 mins walk one way to the local supermarket which stocked eveything and was very reasonable priced. Or a 5-10 min stroll the other way took you straight into the centre of Cabanas and to the boats that took you over to the beach. So after a hard day sunbathing!!! at the side of the wonderfull pool at the villa, a nice stroll into the town for something to eat and drink.... and there is no shortage of resturants.. we never had one bad meal during our stay.....then a walk across the promanade. Then a nice stroll back to the villa what a perfect way to spend a day. If you didn't fancy the stroll into town there were resturants even closer that offered good food and drink at good prices. Would we stay there again?.............Definatly Just trying to arrange the dates.
The house was perfect for us. We are a family of 4 with two teenagers. It was the first time we rented a villa with its own pool and it makes it so easy, as all can have their own activities (e.g. paddling or reading) but still be together. We ate all meals outside, including a good numbers of barbecues. It was also great that we could use the pool when we wanted to.
Even though the pool is quite small, we all had great fun in it.
The house itself is perfect for a family of 4: enough space to prepare simple dinners and to stock food for the week. The two bathrooms made it easy. The bedrooms were a good size and have plenty of storage space.
It only takes just over 10 mins to walk to the centre of the resort, which suited us. There is one small supermarket in Pedras Da Rainha and a spar in the main part of the village.
Restaurants are good there. Trip Advisor have a good selection. Our favourite was Sabores da Ria (the restaurant is great, the tapas bar not quite as good).
Activities in Cabanas are quite varied: cheap boat crossing to get to a very beautiful beach, longer boat trips, kayak hire, cycle hire.
Tavira is a very nice town to visit.
When we went, the weather was quite windy, but we don't know if that is always the case.
Supermarkets we used were Continente in Faro on arrival and Continente in Tavira in a very modern shopping centre.
All in all, a very pleasurable stay.
Lovely Villa with everything you need.
Excellent BBQ and dunk pol, the apartment was about a 10 min walk from where you get the boat to go over to the beach,newsagent ad Spa supermarket were really close.
Train station is also about a 5 min walk away.
Villa was clean and Mark was welcoming on arrival and showed us around.
Only 2 things that could of been improved.
When asking about transfers it would have been great to mention that the train station is so close and is direct, the cost for 2 of us was 7 Euros instead of 60 Euros in a taxi.
The villa need some mirrors no full length mirrors which is well needed for us ladies !
Lovely stay and would def come back
This villa has everything you need for a holiday with friends or family - very clean, very well equipped, great swimming pool and within walking distance to the beach / restaurants, yet in a peaceful quiet location. We didn't need to venture to the beaches as the children had so much fun in and out of the gorgeous pool all day, but when we did we found them pretty amazing. In the evening, the villa is a great to unwind and enjoy family BBQ,s, or just take a short walk into the village and enjoy many of the wonderful restaurant's Cabanas has to offer. Even though we stayed in April, we still had great weather and we were able to make the most this fantastic area has to offer. We will definitely book this villa again and would happily recommend it.
We had a fantastic time on holiday. The villa was wonderful, really comfortable,
and full of rustic, country style charm that was a delight to stay in. We loved the villa’s setting which was private yet only a short walk from everything. The pretty garden was perfect for eating outside or just relaxing and watching the stars! Cabanas is a great resort, and we loved the boutiques and restaurants for eating out. The beach is one of the best I’ve ever been to in the Algarve. We will definitely be back!...
Cabanas is a small picturesque holiday resort set in the Ria Formosa nature reserve, an area of outstanding beauty protected by sandy white barrier islands and natural dunes. The long golden beach is one of the best beaches in the Algarve. Cabanas has all the amenities and for example an excellent choice of eating out. There are some great restaurants, cafes and bars that run along the pretty promenade with beautiful sea views. Cabanas is perfectly situated to visit areas of interest in the Algarve such as the historical town of Tavira with its Roman bridge. You are also only a short drive to Spain where you can take the opportunity to visit whilst on holiday.
