Casa do Alpendre
Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
“Casa do Alpendre” is located just 20 minutes from the beach of Fuseta, on the outskirts of Santa Catarina da Fonte do Bispo, a small village in the municipality of Tavira.
In a region often referred to as one of the Algarve's best kept secrets, the property is located in a green valley, near a brook, providing an ever quiet and peaceful atmosphere. Yet only fifteen minutes drive from the larger resorts such as Tavira and Olhão, the place has easy access to all amenities, including a local market in Santa Catarina da Fonte do Bispo, for bargain hunting, and many good restaurants for eating out.
The cottage benefits from its own private relaxing pool, with deckchairs and shades, in a spacious terrace with bright night sky views (thanks to zero luminous pollution) surrounded by the beautiful Algarvian hills. Also in the terrace is a lounging area with teak armchairs and a table for 4, enabling you to enjoy your meals al fresco.
Leading in through the living room, furnished with table and chairs in the kitchen area, fully equiped with refrigerator and freezer, microwave oven, pyrolitic oven and ceramic hob, we find a rest area with a large sofa, a log fire and an LCD with cable TV.
Having two double bedrooms and two bathrooms, both with shower, the place is ideal for couples seeking peaceful getaways, yet having plenty to see and do in the surrounding area, during your stay.

The Algarve region
The Algarve is well known for its villas, golf courses and also for the many attractive fishing villages - and hence, of course, for the seafood, which is delicious. The Atlantic location means although very hot in June, July and August, the heat is not overpowering. The climate remains warm in Spring and Autumn, and over winter you get warm days, but the nights are noticeably cooler.
The attractive town of Tavira, in the Algarve Sotavento, offers narrow cobbled streets and colourful open-air and covered markets, lively bars and restaurants serving both local and international cuisine, as well as shops of all sorts.
The boundless sandy expanse and the excellent warm temperatures of its waters give name to Praia do Barril as one of Algarve's best beaches. Backed by a lovely dune lined prom, stands great for an afternoon stroll and a drink at a beach bar....
Tavira is a beautiful town with some stunning 18th Century architecture and many churches. The tourist industry thrives here with new golf courses springing up all around the town in recent years, and it is quickly becoming a good tourist destination.
In the surroundings, a visit to the small village of "Cacela Velha" is not to be missed. Likewise, the trip to the sand-bar island beaches of Tavira, stretching along 7 miles, is always a must. The area is part of the Ria Formosa Natural Park.
