The Algarve region
With its stunning coastline, excellent golf courses and pleasant year round climate, the Algarve's 200 kilometre stretch of southern shoreline has become one of Europe's most popular holiday destinations. Bordered on two sides by the Atlantic Ocean, the Algarve is divided from the rest of Portugal by a series of low lying mountains. In the east, the Guadiana River forms a scenic border with neighbouring Spain.
There is a clear definition between the Western Algarve and the East. Whilst the West shows more development towards tourism, the Eastern Algarve and its tidal marshlands still have a tranquil beauty, and the small resorts along the coast have retained much of their character, looking today as they must have looked long ago. Here, tourism blends in perfectly with local activities creating a relaxed way of life. There is a tinge of excitement and even romance about the ferry boat trips to the beach islands, where visitors are rewarded with superb, less crowded bathing beaches and warm waters.
The sea water temperature is around 14c in January and reaches a high 22c in August. A pleasant sea breeze refreshes the temperatures of the region, which are around 15c in January and up to 28c or more in July and August.
The Algarve can also count on around 3.000 hours of Sun during the year which makes it a favourite destination for those who fancy such a sunny climate. The autumn and winter months are mild, but you will need a jacket in the evening and some kind of heating in your apartment or hotel room. January is the coolest month of the year.
The villa is situated just before Monte Agudo which is around 20 minutes walk to the village of St Estevao and around 7kms from Tavira. St Estevao has a mini market, post office, pharmacy, bar and small restaurant.
Nearby Tavira, once known as the capital of the Algarve stands proud amongst Portuguese history books and you will not fail to be enthralled by it's unspoilt charm, character and tranquility. As you wander along the cobbled streets, you'll see an abundance of history. A Roman bridge links the 2 parts of the town across the River Gilao, its sides decorated with traditional old bars and restaurants, there are many churches (37 in total!) to view, along with the town castle, several monuments and the typical fisherman's harbour leading to the River Formosa Natural Park. T
here is a wonderful daily market selling fresh home grown produce and a wide selection of fish. During the high season, horse drawn carriages and a small train operate around the town and are perfect for seeing all the sights and experiencing the peaceful ambience

"WOW! Fantastic villa and holiday"
Found this villa quite by chance searching for a place for me and 18 family members to stay (yup - 18 family members...).From the outset, the owner was very honest and helpful all through the booking … More

"Excellent facilities offering a superb holiday"
We stayed in July at this property. There were 18 of us, travelling from 5 different airports and meetings in Faro and then heading to the villa. The logistics were made considerably easier by the helpful information provided by the owner. In particular, he was able to put in touch with a local chef who came to the villa on two nights and prepared and cooked meals for the whole group, assisted by his wife Cara who served and cleaned up afterwards. The facilities are superb, with air conditioning in the rooms, a fully equipped gym, cinema room, games room, pool, BBQ, games of all kinds... it was perfectly equipped for a large family grouping. It would benefit from an instruction manual for all the gadgets, but there is a local agent on hand (Rachel) who is available to assist if you need her. This was a very cost effective way for such a large party to holiday together and we had a great holiday and a great price. I would highly recommend this property and would recommend that you book the chef at the same time.
