The Algarve region
The Eastern Algarve area is an amazing diversity of both modern development and facilities along with discovering the true identity of Portugal, totally unchanged, which you will find only a few kilometres inland. The climate, although changing a little, boasts an enviable amount of sunshine throughout the year which enables holiday makers to fully enjoy all the wonderful scenery, clean beaches, golf courses and marvellous variety of fresh food. There are also many excellent areas for bird watching and walking. You will find many historically interesting Churches, Roman ruins and architectural buildings throughout the area to explore and along with the friendliness of the locals you can be assured of a very memorable holiday.
Santa Caterina is within a 5 minute drive - here you will find a variety of local shops for your basic needs and a Sunday market once a month. A 15 minute drive will take you to the old Moorish town of Tavira on the banks of the river Gilao which inspite of some development has kept it's unique charm and identity and sense of history. There are many good shops, restaurants and an excellent daily fish and local produce market. From here you can also take a short ferry ride out to Tavira island with it's long sandy beach, sunbeds, bars and restaurants! The Spanish border on the river Guadiana is a 30 minute drive away and has plenty of interesting places to visit and if you fancy driving to Seville the 2 hour trip is well worth the effort.

"Peaceful, well-equipped, authentic"
We had a wonderful stay in the Quinta - it is traditionally furnished with a fabulous swimming pool and very close to the wonderful Tavira - where we quickly established a favourite coffee bar. The villa is comfortable, with everything you would expect and need from a holiday rental, plus a few extras. A great selection of books to browse, some pool accessories and some beautiful countryside with stunning sunsets and a goatherd with goats thrown in! Well-located overall, easy to find and only 30 mins from Faro, this comes highly recommended.

We stayed at the Quinta for 2 weeks in August with our 21/2 year old daughter. The house was perfectly appointed for the relaxed quiet getaway we were looking for, it's relatively remote location… More

"charming house in beautiful surroundings with a magnificant view"
We really loved this cosy and charming house. The kitchen and the barbecue on the terrace were very inviting to make a nice meal and then enjoy it next to the pool where you could gaze for hours at the beautiful surroundings. And we didn't hear anything but the birds. Just lovely! Even better than we expected.

"Away from the bustling crowds, peaceful hideaway with a beautiful pool"
My husband and I (48) spent two weeks in July 2012 at this peaceful hideaway. For anybody who seeks the peace and seclusion of a countryside abode, this is the place to be! The beautiful historic town of Tavira is ideal for an evening stroll and meal and is reached in approx. 20 min. by car. Even on the hottest day of our stay (39°C) Tavira remained relatively cool because of the breeze off the river.
The house is a bungalow, (I believe a converted farm house) and its interior is quaint and clean. As the outdoor area with its fantastic pool is so inviting, the only time spent indoors was just to sleep and prepare breakfast and lunch! We thoroughly recommend this beautiful little house with its unusual swimmingpool to any likeminded people, seeking something special without modcoms in rural surroundings.
The booking via Holidaylettings and the owners was efficient and very friendly, as was the support of the those who attended to matters on site. A very big thank you to all!!!

"Nice villa, great pool!"
Booking and arrangements were easy and straightforward. Directions to property could be better, especially once off the motorway. Location was quite remote (up unmade tracks for about a mile) though there is a villa next door and other properties within sight. Made for a very peaceful and relaxing time though.
Property was generally well equipped and very clean, although no oven or grill, which restricted cooking a bit. No TV either in case it matters.
The pool was great - much bigger and deeper than you'd normally expect. Cleaned once a week but needed netting daily to keep on top of debris from the surrounding trees - a not-unpleasant task in the morning sun! Very nice patio area with plenty of shade if needed and good sunbeds.
Service from local managers was very good, with weekly change of sheets / towels - they even blew up some lilos for us!
