The Stork's Nest
Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
The Stork's Nest is in one of the most stunning locations you will find in Europe.
Set in the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve in an elevated position overlooking the salt pans, with un-interrupted 180º views out to sea and the Island beaches of the Eastern Algarve.
Near to the Fishing village of Fuzeta, and a short distance from the beautiful towns of Tavira and Olhão, The Stork's Nest is an ideal location for exploring, if you can tear yourself away. The Villa has been built around the view, the pool area is the best ´room´ in the house, with spectacular views and a private pool set into the terrace, an outside kitchen with BBQ completes the Idyllic setting.
Inside the house, the windows create a different picture at every turn, comfortable and a home from home, from air conditioning, flat screen TV's and broadband WiFi internet. There really is everything you need here for all ages, to relax, enjoy and be entertained.
The Stork's Nest is named after the storks nest sitting high up in there spectacular nest just 300m from the house. Just one of the many bird species you can see on the salt pans close to the house, there is a path taking you the short distance out to the salt pans, and a path that you can walk/ride into Fuzeta.
The ground floor, is split into 2 levels, the bottom level overlooking the pool, is the comfortable circular lounge, with flat screen TV, going up a few steps into the dining area, with table and chairs for 6 people, fully fitted kitchen and laundry room, which also houses the dishwasher. There is also a cloakroom with WC.
The first of the double bedrooms is also on the ground floor, with double doors onto the terrace, it has a flat screen TV and full bathroom, with bath, shower, bidet, double handbasins and WC. This bedroom can be accessed by a wheelchair ramp that comes around the side of the house.
Climbing up the winding stairs to the first floor, there is a further double bedroom and en-suite wet room, a bathroom and a twin room, both rooms have spectacular views and the double room has it´s own terrace. There is also a door up to the roof terrace from this floor, which has the most stunning 360º views, to the lifeboat house in Fuzeta, out across the Islands of Olhão and back towards São Miguel, the view of the Stork's Nest is best from here.
All rooms have air conditioning and we have WiFi internet. There is a table tennis table in the car port at the rear of the house and 2 bikes are available for guests to use.
We are sure most of your time will be spent on the elevated front terrace, which has a kidney shaped pool, and works on an ultra violet light cleaning system, so no Chlorine…. The pool can be heated on request, but there is also a pool cover, which is very efficient keeping the heat in the pool if covered at night. There are sunbeds for pure relaxation and wooden table and chairs for dining.
The outside kitchen area, is an absolute boom – with a cooking hob, fridge, sink and BBQ – cooking is a real treat, all whilst enjoying the amazing view of the salt pans and out to sea. Dining here under the shaded terrace, next to the pool and looking out to sea is a match made for lazy lunches and star lit dinners.
The Stork's Nest is available for holiday´s from May through to the end of September, the owners of this fantastic holiday home, live here in the winter, so everything you will need is at this home from home.

The Algarve region
The coastal towns of the eastern algarve are 'real' towns, far more under-developed than those in the central and western area of the algarve.
If you are after a more relaxed style of holiday, away from the hordes of tourists and water parks, then the eastern algarve will be the place for you.
Why is it so undeveloped? The reason for this is probably because the towns along the coast are not generally right on the sea. They are separated from the Atlantic by salt-pans, marshland and lagoons. These form part of the ria formosa natural reserve which stretches from just south of faro along the coast to the town of vila nova de cacela, a few kilometres west of the rio guadiana river on the spanish border.
The Stork´s Nest is right in the heart of this ria formosa with views over the salt pans and Island beaches...
The headquarters of the ria formosa natural reserve at quinta marim is worth a visit.
The beaches you'll find along the coast are to be found on long sandy islands and outcrops.
