Villa | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Want to get away from the 'hectic life', away from the tourist trail??? Then this is the place for you! Complete relaxation at a slower pace of life, in a complete rural retreat.
The surrounding views are absolutely stunning, with distant sea views from the balcony.
Quiet and peaceful, but yet only a short drive from the main town of Tavira. (Basically a straight road - so you can't get lost). Short drives to golf courses, beach, etc.
Modern villa with a luxury jacuzzi / hot tub on the private roof terrace. The rooms have high quality furnishings. We operate a no Smoking policy within the villa. However, smoking is permitted outside.
Spacious open plan living area/kitchen. Satellite Sky with a large 52" rear television, DVD player. Ipod docking station. FREE WI-FI available.
There are two sets of large balcony doors, which lead onto the balcony - where you can look out onto the fantastic panoramic and distant sea views.
The kitchen is fully integrated, with an oven, hob, fan extractor, Dishwasher, fridge, freezer, microwave, etc.
Large bathroom, with double sink, Jacuzzi/spa bath, separate shower, w.c, and bidet.
Bedroom 1 has king-size bed,
Bedroom 2 has 2 x twin beds
Getting back to the balcony.... you can walk along the balcony area and there are steps to the side of the house to access the roof terrace. On the roof terrace is a built in barbecue - (see photo). . Also a brand new large 6 seat Jacuzzi / hot tub with 64 jets and waterfalls. Cool water as well as hot! So cooling for the Summer months and warming in the Winter! Plenty of fun.
Pool outside on lower terrace - 10ft diameter x approx 3ft deep - ideal for a plunge to cool you off.
Once again... great views of the countryside.
Also, has underfloor heating which is independently thermostatically controlled in each room.
As this house is situated up in the hills, there is a fantastic cooling breeze which starts from early evening through till dawn. The house has insect screens on all windows and balcony doors, so you can leave your windows open and take advantage of the natural breeze.
Plenty of walks....Off the beaten track, in the back woods of the Algarve, explore the wooded valleys, cross streams, go through Olive and citrus groves, go past eucalyptus and cork oak trees, and onto spectacular viewing points.
There are literally hundreds of miles of winding dirt trails taking you through tiny white-washed villages, where time seems to of stood still. See some of the customs still in practice.
Breathe in the pure air, rich with the scent of local herbs & plants.
This area is undoubtedly one of the Algarve's best kept secrets.
Then after an enjoyable walk, relax and enjoy a beer or local glass of wine. Relax in the Hot Tub under the stars.
Complete peace & harmony.
What more can I say! Come, see and enjoy.
Am finding it difficult to contact Holiday lettings - Please note this villa is not in the Golden Club. Not sure what that is or where it is.!!

The Algarve region
The Algarve is a very beautiful place, with fantastic friendly people. Plenty to see & do.
Spain is about a 40 minute drive. Drive a little further and venture into Seville.
You can also drive or catch a train (very cheap) to Lisbon.
Many museums in and around Faro. (45 minute drive) - or catch a train or bus.
All beaches are wide, sandy and safe for children. All beaches have the EC Blue Flag for cleanliness.
Portugal is warm most of the year, the area is very green, during the months between October to April/May.
Without being isolated, the villa is situated in an absolutely tranquil location which is 12km north of the main town of Tavira center. From here you have panoramic views over the hills and sea. Fantastic walks, as far as the eye can see. A really beautiful rural countryside picturesque setting.
If you are looking for a retreat away from all the hustle and bustle and want to relax in a place where nature is still intact, then this is the place for you. Only 4 km from the small village of Estorninhos, where there is a great friendly local little bar/restaurant.
Tavira (12 km away) is a delightful, historic little town in the far east of the Algarve which is touched rather than engulfed with tourism. It is considered to be one of the Algarve's most beautiful towns. Narrow, cobbled streets, riverside gardens, old castles, ancient Roman bridge, just make this a town to remember. Eat 'Al fresco' in it's many little restaurants, and enjoy open air entertainment on Summer evenings' in the square.
There are many golf courses within the area, such as
Benamar Golf Club (20 min drive)
Quinta be Cima & Quinta DE Ria (20 min drive)
Castro Marim (30 min drive)
Esturi - just over the border in Spain (45 min drive)
Monte Rei Golf & country club (25 mins drive) - and is being heralded as "undoubtedly the most exclusive & cosmopolitan development in the Algarve". Monte Rei is set in more than 1000 acres of beautiful countryside between Vila Real de St Antonio and Tavira.
