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.

There is a clear definition between the Western Algarve and the East. Whilst the West shows more development towards tourism, the Eastern Algarve has retained a traditional charm. The Easterly aspect runs from Faro Airport through to Vila Real (bordering Spain)and has one direct coastal road all the way the EN125. Following this road, there are many lovely beach towns to discover, including the lovely main town of Tavira which is the central point of the Eastern region. The region welcomes many visitors all year round, and the laid back atmosphere with its leisurely pace is generally family orientated or perfect for couples. Bars and Restaurants are traditional in style and nightlife is generally low key; there are very few late night scenes and discotheques! If you are looking for simple lifestyle, beach time and good food, then The Eastern Algarve is for you!

Estorninhos

Eiroes is a charming rural hamlet situated in the hills of Tavira and is reached by travelling from the EN125 main road up through the National Forest for around 5 km. Eiroes is predominantly agricultural and farming land, with a few villas and houses dotted around! There are no shops or restaurants in Eiroes - the only amenity that the village has to offer is a local bar at the top of the hill! An experience with the locals - and with very reasonable prices. There is very little else, other than the wonderful views and peacefulness, so guests should be prepared for that. The nearest town for main grocery shopping and a greater choice of amenities is Tavira. Car is essential.

BEACHES

The Algarve is famous for its wonderful sandy shores. The closest is Tavira - The Island of Tavira as a natural island separated from the mainland by the River Formosa is reached by catching a ferry from a designated point in the harbor in the town. A good range of facilities is offered including bars, restaurants, sunbeds and shades all boasting a wonderful holiday atmosphere amongst white sandy beaches and the rolling Atlantic Ocean. If you do not wish to catch a ferry boat, then Manta Rota beach can be reached by car and has similar facitilies (around 12 minutes drive)

THE BEAUTIFUL TOWN OF TAVIRA

When staying in this accommodation a visit to the beautiful town centre of Tavira is essential! Once known as the capital of the Algarve, Tavira stands proud amongst Portuguese history books and you will not fail to be enthralled by its unspoilt charm, character and tranquility. As you wander along the cobbled streets, you'll see an abundance of history and wonderful architecture. A Roman bridge links the 2 parts of the town across the River Gilao, its sides decorated with traditional old bars and restaurants - perfect for lazy lunches or a glass or 2!.

On one side of the town there is a large square which has entertainment in the summer months, and by crossing the Roman Bridge to the other side of the town, you will find a little more life in the evenings with a great selection of restaurants tucked away down the streets and a few later opening cafe bars. Features and things to visit include the many churches (37 in total!) the Town Castle and the Camara Obscura with its stunning aerial views. There is a range of shops to explore, as well as the old market building recently restored with cafes, shops and artisan, and also the traditional indoor market selling locally grown produce and fresh fish. To enjoy and see the full Tavira aspect, you can take the passenger train which follows a set route around the town, or you can personalize your experience by taking a ‘TUK TUK’ tour in the small vehicles for 2 – 6 persons.

Tavira is the perfect central location, with great bus, train and road networks connecting along the whole of the Algarve Coastline.

OTHER THINGS TO SEE AND DO

…….by travelling a little further afield there are a good range of things to do to suit all tastes. For nature lovers there are forest walks, cruises along the River Guadiana or natures trails along the Ria Formosa Reserve where bird watching is in abundance! By travelling towards the West there are some excellent shopping centres in Faro and Ghia as well as the famous Water Parks and Zoo Marine (wonderful for children), all easily reached by car or by day trip coach (around 45 minutes). From this property it is also easy to take a day trip to Spain. The lovely border town of Ayamonte is not far, and once there you can sample the delights of another country, including wine, tapas and excellent shopping. You can travel by car, or use public transport to get to Vila Real de Santo Antonio and from there take the 15 minute ferry crossing across the Guadiana River between Spain and Portugal. For the more adventurous the vibrant city of Seville is approx 170km away and for budding historians the Castle at Castro Marim is worth a look.

GOLF

This is perfect accommodation for golfers wishing to sample the excellent courses situated in the Eastern Algarve. Within a 20km radius there are 6 courses to choose from. Benamor and the 2 Quintas (Ria and Cima) are the most popular and have fantastic scenery and sea views. The prestigious Monte Rei course designed by Jack Nicklaus, whilst a little costly, offers the height of golfing luxury. Travelling East to towards the Spanish Border, the challenging courses of Castro Marim and the Ballesteros Signature Course Quinta do Vale both come highly recommended.
