  • We spent five days with Elin and Knut and had a very relaxed stay. The accommodation is very clean and very well equipped. Elin and Knut are helpful and have lovingly prepared their house and grounds. We got a cot from them and even some toys. The apartment is located in the hinterland of Faro. We enjoyed the peace very much and were still flexible thanks to the car. There are great hidden restaurants in the area. We would definitely come again!

  • Thank you Paule Et Greg. What a wonderful place to spend your holidays - the pictures do not fully reflect its charm. It is a beautiful house with garden and a swimming pool. All designed and built with love, taste and great attention to details.... and this silence there - amazing. A great view on the Milky Way during the nights comes extra:) Paule & Greg were great hosts. Thank you!

    Maciek2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • What a splendid, beautiful, gorgeous place! The photos can’t really transport how marvelous the house, the garden and the environment are. We had such a great time - calm and relaxing. Thank you, Paule er Greg, for sharing this great place - one can really see and feel the love, care and thoughtfulness that went into everything - and for your hospitality.

    Ann-Catrin2019-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • Everything is made with a lot of good taste and the attention to details is amazing. We loved the showed hospitality, the house, the garden, the pool... Kindi (the dog) :). We definitely recommend this place to anyone who plans a vacation in Algarve region.

    Florin2019-09-07T00:00:00Z

  • This place is magical. By far the most idyllic and beautiful place we've had the pleasure of visiting. The photos do it no justice. This is a place to be experienced..

    Bruno2019-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • A warm welcome, a delightful super equipped house, a swimming pool and a dream garden, a superb view, absolute calm under the benevolent discretion of Paule and Greg.

    Frederique2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • We can’t find words that do justice to the beauty of your Quinta. The photos on Airbnb are very pretty but the feeling of this Quinta can’t be explained by the photos. The design of the Quinta and Gardens take your breath away and there’s such a harmony. We loved the interior design, the African touch, all the comfort in the kitchen, bed and bathrooms. The pool with deckchairs is very pretty and our teenagers loved chilling there. Truly a place to revisit in future.

    Wendy2019-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks a lot for your great hospitality.. We really enjoyed every moment by you... the house and the garden is much better than on photos.. its a tresure.. just to recommend... friendly, helpfull and giving good tips...

    Santa Catarina da Fonte do Bispo, Tavira, Portugal

    Welcome to our home. Casa de Cima is 10 minutes from Tavira and 20 minutes from the beach. It is our retreat in the countryside when we want to escape from the city and enjoy the most beautiful beaches of Algarve. We recovered Casa de Cima to our liking but thinking on how to give our guests a memorable experience. Cooking, tasting, resting - indoors and out, with natural light. We received families, couples, groups of friends, Portuguese and other nationalities. They are all welcome.
    Casa de Cima is cozy and well equipped. We have recently installed air conditioning in the rooms and for the cold winter days we have heater in the living room. The kitchen is equipped with new appliances, and because we love to cook we have all the basic utensils to make delicious things. But in the summer the barbecue outside has no rest, with fresh fish that we buy in the market of Tavira. In the bathroom we leave the basic items so that you do not have to go shopping before settling in. We offer a child bed and dining chair. We left some games and the console for a fun time, and smart tv allows access to youtube and netflix, but try to sit in the garden chairs and see the stars - it's a luxury only accessible to those who are in the countryside.
    Close to Tavira are the most beautiful beaches in the Algarve. From Barril Beach to Cacela Velha, all are worth a visit. For those who have children Barril Beach has the charm of the train route in the access to the beach (this is the closest to Casa de Cima). If you prefer more countryside and less beach there are several paths close to home that you can explore on foot. For your convenience, in the center of Tavira you can find all kinds of commerce and services. A short drive from Casa de Cima you can find several cafes, restaurants, supermarkets and a shopping center.
  • Amazing host, cosy house in the country, surrounded by nature, perfect if you are into being a bit afar from town, roads, crowds and enjoy silence and peace

    Antonio2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • It 's a very cosy house. Our stay was wonderful. Near farms, night sky and silence. Tavira is close by, and there is everything you need in the kitchen to cook a delicious dinner. And if you want, in 10 minutes there is the city of Tavira with very tasty restaurants

    Natalia2019-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • The house is tiny but very nicely furnished and equipped. We liked the stay here.

    Magdaléna2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Teresa's house very nice, clean and comfortable. Whatever you needed, it was at the house. Teresa had a lot of information for us regarding restaurants, beaches, stores, etc.

    Martijn2019-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • We had a really good time in Teresa and Joses flat. We are a couple with a 3 and half year old son. September in Portugal was great for us, because there are not too many tourists and the weather is still very good. The flat is really nice with astonishing details, very tidy and clean. Teresa was very quick in anwering our questions, and gave us nice tips. Check in was uncomplicated and easy. All in all it was a really nice stay and I would always recommend Teresa and Joses home. MANY THANKS

    Katrin2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • Teresa & José have been really helpful with tips, good restaurants and nearby beaches. Although we didn't meet them personally, they where always reachable and fast responding via text. We absolutely loved the quit and chilled evenings at this place just a few km away from the city center of Tavira. Still everything you need (supermarkets, restaurants, beaches, pubs etc.) can be reached by car within minutes. Recommend this lovely place without any doubt!

    Mira2019-05-18T00:00:00Z
  • Impeccable and very careful the house. Small but used to. Maximum, for 4 ideal, supercompleta of appliances and utensils. Everything new and with pleasure. Its location is suitable for excursions, it has no nearby field or garden but the wonderful Pego do Inferno is 5 minutes by car. Attentive at all times and quick answering any questions.

    Maria2019-05-11T00:00:00Z
  • Teresa and Josè's house is a very authentic place close to Tavira by car. The house is small but you have everything which might need and the design is cool. This is a semi-detached house with a shared entrancewith the neighbors.They were very nice even if we didn't understand them very well. Theresa and Josè were reactive helpful and provided us with lot of information. 5stars for the bbq and the Hamac. Thanks again

    Welcome to Casa Olivia which is a renovated farmhouse surrounded by almond and olive trees. The property is located in the Portuguese countryside but at the same time centrally located to explore all the sights of the Algarve. Here you can enjoy and relax, but there are also excellent opportunities for walking, riding, cycling, playing golf and much more. It takes only 20 minutes to reach the beach or drive to the charming town of Tavira. Getting here from Faro airport takes only 30 minutes.
  • A fantastic location with beautiful views in every direction. The house was very beautiful and the decor exceeded my expectations. Incredibly beautiful. In addition, comfortable beds and seating. The kitchen was very well equipped and we didn't miss anything during our two week long stay. Jan and Marie were very helpful and gave us tips on various activities. We made several easy walks in the vicinity of the accommodation and you could easily reach coastal resorts or other places in about half an hour. If you took the highway you could reach Seville in less than two hours. All roads were high class and we generally adhered to smaller roads. We really recommend this accommodation to the fullest. Inger and Bosse, Täby, Sweden

    Inger2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Our family stay in Casa Olivia was excellent, the accommodation perfect and Jan & Marie's hosting was first class. Casa Olivia is set in a beautiful inland valley with great views and makes the perfect base for heading off to all the main towns, harbours and beaches within the area. The property had everything we needed for a more than comfortable stay and was secure and safe for our two small children. Highly recommended.

    Marc2019-10-23T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay with Marie and Jan was just perfect. They are the perfect hosts - never pushy, but always ready for a nice small talk with great insider tips. They were always there for questions. The house is super comfortable and spacious. Everything is very clean. The plot including pool invites you to relax. The location was perfect for us. Highly recommended (in our opinion) trips to Tavira, the dream beaches of the Western Algarve, but also inland (along the Spanish border to Alcoutim - there is a beautiful river beach) and Cachopo through the mountains with the cork oaks back, and and and , In short: a dream vacation with dream hosts!

    Matthias2019-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • Our whole family enjoyed the stay very much. Jan and Marie were helpful in every way and also the communication was faultless. Even with two little kids it was a very pleasant and comfortable experience for us all. Thank you loads!

    Nitka2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • We were four travelers (two retired couples) spending three nights at Jan & Marie's place. What a lovely house it is--completely and beautifully renovated, three bedrooms and two baths. The grounds and gardens--flowers and fruit trees--are charming as was the terrace, where we ate dinner as the sun set. While about a half-hour from the town of Tavira, we all felt the house was close enough to enjoy the town, but far enough away to have a relaxing country-side experience. We also enjoyed the restaurants in the near-by town of Sao Bras de Alportel, about half a kilometer away. Thank you Jan & Marie!

    Jerri2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • House very nice and well thought, they are adorable and make you want to come back.

    Olivia2019-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • Our booking of Casa Olivia was based on affordability and we were a little bit concerned about being out in the sticks. We need not have worried as it was the perfect place to stay. We were close to a diverse range of destinations and Jan was happy to offer us advice on places that were suitable for our three children. The house itself was perfect for our needs, spacious, perfectly clean and it had a touch of luxury which is very appealing! I had never slept in a four poster bed or had an en suite! Marie was away, so my comments on the host are focused on Jan. He was there when we needed him, very friendly but he also gave us the space to feel at home. The perfect host . We absolutely loved the countryside and exploring Portugal, which is relaxed, friendly and fun. I never understood why people went on holiday to the same place every year until we visited The Olive Valley. We will certainly return. Thank you!

    Harriet2019-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • A charming house and all comfort, the view is superb and the presence of guests and tenants of the studio does not interfere at all! Ideal location for those who want to be away from cities

The country roads to Casas Novas change from tarmac at 'Umbria' then along apx 3 k of good forestry road with the final rough track into the village to be driven along slowly. Nature, calm and quiet.

  • Excellent stay at Paca, in a beautiful and bucolic place. Paca is a very nice and nice high. The house is lovely with beautiful views and very comfortable. Very good plan for travelers looking for authenticity and being in osmosis with nature. Moreover it is an excellent starting point for excursions in the serra, the barrocal with very beautiful villages and the Sotavento coast. Around beautiful ride to do and the beaches are accessible by car. I highly recommend. I really liked Casas Novas at Paca's.

  • Staying at Marie's and Jan's Studio Colina had just the effect me and my friend were hoping for. Calming down. Connecting to nature. Just being there, exactly in that moment. It was a wonderful stay and Jan & Marie have created a place with soul and a lot of love. Thank you so dearly, we are keen to return!

    Lara2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks to Jan and Marie for their hospitality. My parents were very comfortable, the place is very quiet. We rented the apartment at the beginning of winter and the heating worked perfectly, it really made the stay comfortable. The whole apartment is practical. We will be back!!

  • What a great couple of days! A stylish, spacious and clean studio in a recently renovated yet traditional Algarve home. Private terraces front and back to catch both morning and evening sun. Very quiet despite being close to the N270. Jan and Marie are welcoming, thoughtful hosts and the pride they take in their home is obvious. Highly recommended!

    Paula2019-11-16T00:00:00Z
  • An immaculately clean, tastefully decorated but homely studio space with lovely outside areas too. Jan & Marie are great hosts & have thought about every little detail - a quality bottle of wine upon arrival; pool as well as normal towels; a good hair dryer; a very comfy bed & a well equipped kitchen! All the little things that make an easier stay & a lighter suitcase! They are fantastic hosts - friendly and helpful but also not too fussy & allow your own space & privacy. A nice shared pool, 2 outside spaces to sit & some pretty olive groves to walk around add to the experience. A great quiet, chilled country setting - away from the hustle and bustle of the coast but only a short drive away when you want to dip into the sea or towns. Highly reccomend!! Thank you for our wonderful relaxing stay!

    Sara2019-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our stay so much - Jan & Marie are really welcoming and warm hosts, the Appartement is cosy and stylish with many beautiful details, the view and surroundings are stunning and we enjoyed the refreshing Pool a lot. The location is brilliant - within 20 minutes you get to the sea, to small cute villages, good restaurants,...even the Airport is close but the Studio itself is located quite. Highly recommendet - perfect summer holiday feeling 😊

    Lena2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • Jan and Marie are very welcoming hosts ready to give you all the good addresses of the area (beaches, restaurants ...). The accommodation is spacious and tastefully furnished. It is located 20 minutes from the seaside and you find all amenities within 5-10 minutes by car. A real haven of peace! We highly recommend this accommodation.

    Dorothée2019-07-08T00:00:00Z

    Tucked away in the heart of the splendid Serra do Caldeirão, a beautiful protected region of verdant riverine valleys and undulating hills covered in woodlands of pine, cork and strawberry trees, Casa da Alfarrobeira is, quite simply, a world away from the hustle and bustle of 21st Century living. This is one of The Algarve’s most natural and authentically unspoiled landscapes, a sparsely populated area of small and friendly, tight-knit communities used to living life at a slower pace and where traditional ways are still very much in evidence. At Casa da Alfarrobeira guests have a perfect opportunity to take a little step back in time and (re)discover the gentle, relaxing joys of The Algarve ‘as it once was’. A loving renovation using time-honoured methods and materials has created an attractive, comfortable home that is spacious and well equipped throughout. Modern appliances in the open plan living/dining/kitchen provide an attractive contrast to various antique pieces and artifacts so typical of rural Portuguese farmhouses. Cycling, visiting quaint local villages and enjoying the many scenic picnic areas that dot the region are all key attractions while hikers will relish this spectacular undulating terrain with its selection of marked routes and trails. Special mention must also be made of the amazing variety of bird life that frequents this part of the world; recorded sightings include the Red-rumped Swallow, Blue Warbler, Blue Rock Thrush and Common Redstart as well as birds of prey such as the Goshawk, Sparrowhawk, Bonelli's Eagle and Short-toed Eagle - the latter species being a particularly common sight. As the sleepy hamlet of Lajes has no dedicated amenities of its own a van selling freshly baked bread visits three times a week and the nearby village of Parizes (6km) has a café where take away meals can be ordered with 24 hours’ notice. Large supermarkets, several excellent restaurants and a well preserved old center can be found at the market town of São Brás de Alportel (22km) while the vibrant daily market at Loulé (30km) is a must for stocking up on wonderful local produce. The beautiful coastal town of Tavira (40km), is well worth visiting for its historical centre, excellent seafood restaurants and blue flag beaches.
    Povoação idosa e muito reduzida. Espaço muito tranquilo. Longe do litoral e das praias.
  • If you want quiet, come here. For walkers it’s perfect, there’s a guide with some good walks but we found that the surrounding roads are as good as any you may drive hours to get to. Just put your boots on and walk up the nearest lane. Glorious.

  • Perfect place to get away from all the hustle of the city. The house has everything that is needed for your stay there. All that is needed is some groceries, good mood and yourself. No words are good enough for this experience.

    Lavinia2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • Superb pool with breathtaking views of the Algarve hills in a very quiet and secluded corner. Rest and disconnection guaranteed. Remember to do your shopping before to avoid unnecessary round trips. Allow 30 minutes to find the first supermarket.

    Caroline2019-08-13T00:00:00Z

  • Nice villa in the middle of the mountain where calm and singing birds reign. The villa is well equipped and has an outdoor barbecue. Small flat the villa is quite far from the city (try to avoid the roads at night, they are not at all lit). Very well received by the parents of Basília with exellentes oranges of their production!

    Tavira, Portugal

    O Serro is a charming little cottage, recently renovated with special emphasis to local style and materials. It consists of two bedrooms (one with double, one twin), living room, fully equipped kitchen, bathroom and covered terrace with lovely views to the garden and the hills.
    O Serro is part of “Pequeno Castelo”, a small guest house, where the swimming pool is open to all guests. Breakfast and evening meals are available on request. Santo Estevão (Saint Stephen), a typical Algarvian village is only about one mile or a fifteen minute walk along orchards of carobs, figs, oranges, almonds and olives. In the village you will find a small but very good restaurant, coffee shops, mini-markets, post-office, chemist and cash point.
    Tavira, the most exquisite town on the south coast and one of the loveliest in Portugal is worth more then one visit. The medieval arcades, graceful cloisters and ancient walls of Tavira´s mansions, castle, churches and monasteries frame handsome piazzas. Coming across the seven arched roman bridge you may wonder how Tavira has kept its back firmly against the tide of modern development. If ever the lure of the ocean dulls you will find that the wooded hills of the serra behind Tavira with its picturesque little villages offer beautiful and unspoiled terrain for exploring and walking. Small restaurants invite to get to know the typical dishes of the region and its excellent wines. Discover the Eastern Algarve with its all year round warm climate where temperatures even in winter never drop below 14 C and most days you will be able to go for long walks or to sunbathe on one of the long sandy beaches. In summer however the temperature may reach 28 - 30 C, in July and August even higher and you will enjoy the clean water of the Atlantic in Europe’s unique natural reserve, Ria Formosa.

We had a great family holiday and would highly recommend this address to anyone who would like to visit the Algarve, which is a very beautiful part of Portugal with a smiling and welcoming people. In short, that positive for this holiday!

    Alex2019-07-19T00:00:00Z
  • This little cottage is set in the countryside but within walking distance of the village of Santo Estevao. It is spotlessly clean and we'll equipped. It is set away from the main house and has total privacy. A car is essential.

The furnishings inside are comfortable and modern, and outside, you can choose from several terraces to relax, read, dine by BBQ or take a dip in the lovely pool on warmer summer days. This is the perfect retreat for guests seeking peace and tranquility. There is a cafe/snack bar close by, 10 minutes by car to the nearest towns: Tavira or Olhão
    The villa is rustic in design and has been recently renovated with comfortable and modern furnishings. There are 3 bedrooms, 2 king size for couples and 1 with bunk beds for children, and a large shower-room to share. The main living space is open plan with comfy sofas, a large dining table and a gorgeous country kitchen. The grounds are securely gated, and here you are in your own private kingdom!

    The magic of this villa is its rural location and its peacefulness. There are 3 other houses in the hamlet. So whilst there are neighbours nearby, the villa is not directly overlooked and you have privacy within the gated gardens and grounds.
  • I have been to this lovely house for a week early this month. We were two couples, both with babies aged less than a year. The bedrooms are quite small and the fact that there is only one bathroom were the downside. On the other hand, it has a great pool and a valuable barbecue. All the staff at Smartavillas were extremely helpful and professional. They brought an umbrella and mattresses for the sunbeds in just a few hours. I definitely recommend this house and Smartavillas' service.

    Guilherme2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • It was our first trip to Portugal and this villa was a very very nice surprise It is superb, tastefully decorated and ideal for a family All possible comfort and a breathtaking view of the magnificent hills We are used to villas with swimming pools and quite frankly this is probably one of our favorites Thanks also to Rachel for her hospitality and kindness. Géraldine and Sébastien

    Sebastien2019-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • We had a very pleasant stay. Very professional service from Smartavillas. The villa is neat and well equipped, in a very quiet place and with an extraordinary panorama. The place is to be recommended without hesitation.

    Tony2019-08-09T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice and peaceful house. I would strongly recommend this place, just kick back and relax!

    Tanguy2019-07-18T00:00:00Z
  • Our family absolutely loved this property and did not want to leave after our 4 day stay. It is in a truly beautiful spot and is immaculate in every way. Every detail was attended to - pool, barbecue, coffee, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer etc.... The pool and grounds are simply stunning. The inside of the home is newly renovated and very comfortable with multiple options for inside and outside dining. I couldn’t fault it and would highly recommend.

  • Beautiful house and superb view. Host and his wife adorable, do not hesitate to come to Luciano!

    Louise2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Luciano’s wonderful Casa. The house is on a quiet hill with a panoramic view of the Southern Algarve coast and the lovely little town of Santa Catarina. Everything needed for a quiet break, with beaches close by, is here. It is a place where a car is beneficial, if not mandatory, if you want to explore. Sr. Luciano and his wife are very friendly and hospitable. They made us feel at home, and were very supportive with tips, information and smiles. Truly nice people. Don’t forget to try the pastries in Santa Catarina. They are scrumptous. If you are able to stay here, you won’t be disappointed. We wouldn’t think of visiting the area without popping by for a night, or two!

    David2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • Very quiet, cozy and good point view place. Everything equipments you need for home staying is in there. Not so far away are clean beaches. But I think you have to have a car to be there

    Egor2019-09-10T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay, both Luciano and Manuela are very close and detailed, they were waiting for our arrival to not locate the house, always attentive to any doubt and need of ours, and respecting at all times our privacy. The perfect house to disconnect and with everything you need to spend a great and idyllic stay. We hope to return soon !!!!

    Clara2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Very welcome, extremely clean house and very well equipped. Super site. Very good advice from the host. To do again eyes closed

    André2019-08-24T00:00:00Z
  • We had a pleasant stay in Luciano's house which has all the modern comforts. It is located on a hill above the village and enjoys a magnificent view of the surroundings and the sea in the distance. The site is quiet and Luciano and his wife are very nice people and very welcoming. I recommend this rental.

Its only a 10 min drive from Tavira wich is perfect for your night out or beer drinking afternoon. The terrace is very nice.

  • The villa was way beyond expectations and everything about this holiday was perfect. Worth every penny, couldn’t ask for more.

    Jack2019-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • Spacious villa on hilltop location near Sao Bras - Vivenda Aurora is great family home with large pool overlooking spectacular views. During our stay we enjoyed cooking on the barbecues at one of the two outdoor dining areas . Overall this was a great place for getting away from it all, but close enough to everything the Algarve has to offer. For some of our party this was our first introduction to the Algarve and we hope the first of many. The Villa Vivenda Aurua has the feel of a family home and our family was sad to leave at the end of our 12 night stay .

    Paul2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • This villa is one of best we've been to. Fantastic location atop a hill with stunning views across the landscape. The night sky from here was beyond compare! Were able to see shooting stars nearly every night. The villa itself is so well equipped. It was an absolute treat. Comfort in all respects. Very relaxing and a definite for recommending to anyone who's looking for a holiday, home away from home...

    Rashi2019-08-03T00:00:00Z

    Carlos2019-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Me and my family stayed at Vivenda Aurora from 24.10 to 31.10.17 and we really enjoyed our stay. The location is beautiful and quiet as the house is situated on a top of a hill with no neighbors close by. The house is cozy and it has all home appliances needed. Spacious terraces allowed us to spend a lot of time outside, watching both sunrises and sunsets. Comfortable sunbeds made our time near the pool enjoyable as well. Before our arrival we were provided with detailed information about the house, places to visit, restaurants, etc. Our host Jeremy was always friendly and available to reply any questions we had. We recommend Vivenda Aurora both for a family vacation and for a holiday with friends.

    Igor2017-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderfully private, great location, large and fully equipped. Nice big pool and a sweet cleaning lady during the week. Supermarkets and restaurants pretty close, arrange a car when you are there.

Near the warm water beaches, but with the privacy of Tavira's mountains, a perfect place to rest, enjoy and walk between the sea and mountain. Perfect for couples, families with children or a group of friends who want the quiet and poetry of this beautiful part of the Algarve wich is Tavira.

  • For people, who love the nature and quiet places, it is a very, very beautiful spot!! The view over the hills, the pool - it‘s awesome and highly recommended !!! :-) The last minutes drive to reach the accommodation is a little bit tricky - at least for people, who are used to more flat land (as there are some more narrow curves, and declines on the left & right) but we got used to it ;) Thanks, Anne-Patricia, for such a wonderful time at your house !!!

    Maike2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • I recommend the accommodation of Anne Patricia without any problem. Housing clean and equipped properly. Flawless bedding and the pool is just top. Very nice welcome from Anne Patricia and her husband, who are just adorable and caring for their guests. We had local addresses available to restore or visit from Anne Patricia with valuable advice that we appreciated. Quiet and cozy place, go there with your eyes closed!

    Raphael2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • It was a very nice stay with Anne-Patricia. Super friendly welcome and a beautiful view awaits you. Perfect time to relax and feel good. If you want to have a glass of wine in the evening and fresh fish barbecue on the side is just right. The perfect cooling afterwards in the clean and large pool. A rental car is recommended, who also wants to do a few trips in between companies. Anne-Pratricia and her husband are super nice and warm people. You can just feel good :)

  • Where to start ? Beautiful discovery, beautiful meeting. A magical place with hospitable hosts. The setting of the villa is idyllic, the calm that reigns there is soothing. and the icing on the cake: the pool with views of the surrounding hills. Nothing to say, except that we will return without hesitation. Do not change anything everything is perfect. you have accomplished a beautiful project and thank you for sharing it with us. You are passionate and it shows and feels especially continue as well.

  • We had a great time at Anne-Patricia and José's. We enjoyed the peace and beauty of the place, the pool and the outdoors. The welcome and availability of guests was invaluable for advice and recommendations. We will recommend this piece of paradise to our loved ones!

  • I like to write a review for Anne-Patricia and "Charme discret d'un adorable studio Zen". The accommodation at Porto Cavalhoso in Alqueivinho is simply wonderful for people looking for peace, quiet and relaxation. It has a fantastic, unobstructed view over the hills of the fertile hinterland overlooking the sea to Fuzeta. The charming village of Santa Catarina da Fonte do Bispo is within a pleasant walk. The area invites to small hikes and discovery tours and by car is about 20-30 minutes. on the natural beaches of the Ria Formosa Natural Park between Tavira and Faro. The very well maintained pool ensures the morning freshness kick. The apartment "Zen" is very tastefully decorated and in the kitchen you will find everything you need for self-catering. Ann-Patricia and José are very warm-hearted, humorous hosts, who provide advice and support. Both speak French, good English and a little German and overall the communication has worked very well. Our apartment was lovingly decorated to our honeymoon and not to despise is the homemade jam of Anne-Patricia. Many thanks for everything! We will definitely come back.

    Markus2019-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • I would urge anyone to book a stay Anne-Patricia’s place. Anne-Patricia and Jose are excellent hosts who go the extra mile. This place is perfect to go and have a private and relaxing holiday.

    Nicole2019-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • Patricia is a very attentive and friendly hostess! As soon as we arrived, she provided us with fruit from the garden, wine and honey. The well-equipped accommodation offers a fantastic view of the surroundings and the sea. The silence ensures pure relaxation! For those who love seclusion, the perfect place! We will be back!!

    Tavira, Faro, Portugal

    Located in a quiet environment with a wild nature (natural reserve), Quinta da Murteira is a property isolated in the hills, hidden at the end of a sandpath of about 1,5 km, but nevertheless at only 1/4h's drive to the town of Tavira, its lagoon, its bird reserve and its beautiful beaches. You will be able to enjoy a very nice weather, birds watching, nice walks, beautiful starry skies or simply relax by the pool (for resident's exclusive use).
    Dans un environnement pour les amoureux du calme et d'une nature restée sauvage (réserve naturelle), Quinta da Murteira, une propriété de plus de trois hectares, se découvre au bout d'un chemin de terre battue de 1,5 km. Pourtant, elle n'est qu'à un quart d'heure en voiture de la cité de Tavira, de sa lagune (réserve ornithologique) et de ses belles plages de sable. De part sa position centrale dans le 'Sotavento Algarvio' (partie Est de l'Algarve), elle peut être le point de départ d'une journée à la plage ou pour découvrir le Sud du Portugal, voire la proche Andalousie (l'Espagne n'est qu'à 40 km, Séville à 180 km.) A 'Quinta da Murteira', on apprécie, entre autres, un soleil généreux, le chant et l'observation des oiseaux, les randonnées pédestres ou... le farniente au bord de la piscine (à l'usage exclusif des résidents).
    Situated at 30 km from Faro airport, Quinta da Murteira, being situated centrally in the Sotavento (Leeward) Algarvio (Eastern part of the Algarve) could be the departing point for a day at the beach or to discover the South of Portugal or even the close Andalusia (Spain is only 40 km away and you will only have to drive 180 km to reach Seville). If you play golf, you will find many golf courses in the area.
  • We are very happy to have found this pearl.. quiet nature, perfect facilities but most of all lovely people! Merci beaucoup, et a la prochaine.. Bisous Frank et Susanne

    Susanne2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Our visit to the cottage of Benoît and Anne was far beyond our expectations! The property is beautiful! (Not easy to find the first time but it's worth it!) There is all the necessary comfort to miss nothing and our guests wished to share their experiences on the best plans and visits to be made in the region. The cleanliness was nickel! You can enjoy the calm of the cottage and its swimming pool in the sun without vis-à-vis and in complete silence ... or admire magnificent starry nights away from the lights of the city ... all just minutes away from the city. In short, to stay with your eyes closed! Thank you to them for this beautiful moment!

    Arnaud2019-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely place to stay near Tavira, rural and quiet, but easy to get to the coast and local towns. Great to return to after a hot day out, peaceful, great local walks, quiet and very clean. Pool is lovely, kitchen small but well equipped, two separate rooms through different doors from outside, both with bathrooms. I’ve nothing negative to say......but the drive from the main road is unnerving the first time... but by day two it feels normal ! The best start glazing I’ve ever had ! Supermarkets a few km away and lots of great restaurants 15 mins drive...try fuzeta...great fish restaurants. I will be booking again...

    Susan2018-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • The Quinta is beautifully located in the hilly surroundings of Santa Catarina. Be aware of aan appr 2km drive on a gravel road which you have to get accustomed to in the beginning. The house and its very well-kept terraces and pool reward you for this. Everything is looked after by Georges and Anne who are lovely hosts. We had a great week getting away from it all! Definitely recommended!

    Julia2017-10-30T00:00:00Z
  • The photos don't do this place justice - stunning setting! If you are looking for somewhere to unwind and relax away it all, this is the place. Only 15 minutes drive to Tavira, but the setting makes you feel you are miles from anywhere. Georges and Anne are lovely hosts and are on hand only if you need them. Will be back!

    Chris2017-04-04T00:00:00Z
  • We spent our Honeymoon at Georges little slice of Heaven. If you want to get away from it all, this is the place! You feel like you are miles from anywhere but in reality you are just a 15 min drive from the nearest beach. The villa is very sweet, clean & has all you need for a great holiday. Georges & Anne are both wonderful, helpful hosts & beautiful people! We strongly recommend!!

The house is perfect, very comfortable and so pleasant to live. The right ingredients for a real moment of happiness. The welcome of Emay, his advice and his smile made me crack for this region ...

  • Very nice stay. The house is quite remote, after a long way but the explanations of João are very good to get there. A pleasant garden and a rather quiet environment (except the neighbor's dog, sometimes).

    Louis2018-10-30T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our week in João's cottage! For us, the rural location was perfect, nothing but the stars and the sound of the crickets at night, and views across the hills in the day. The road to the cottage was a little tricky at first but Laurentino was there to meet us and we soon got used to the drive :-) The cottage had everything we needed, and had plenty of space for a family of five. We all loved the roof terrace for breakfast and for sunsets and star gazing! The kids also enjoyed hunting for geckos around the garden at dusk. We would definitely recommend this property for anyone wanting a quiet place to stay in the beautiful Algarve. Thank you João for a lovely week!

  • We had a very nice holiday at Terra das Delicias. We were very nice received by Stephane & Pascal together with host Rex and Nugget (their 2 dogs). The road to this paradise is a bit exciting in the beginning but indeed after a few times you drive it like any other road. I think Pascal and Stephane are ready for you day and night. They also have great ideas for trips such as which market you can visit, where you can go to the beach or where you can eat well. The facilities such as the swimming pool and the jaguzzi are unlimited available to you. The cottage (the cottage) we stayed in was clean and big enough for the three of us. The beds were good and there are many nice places around the house to relax. In addition to the cocktails we received and the drive to restaurant Monte Vehlo, where Stephane and Pascal brought us and brought us back, they also organized a picnic in the mountains for my 30th birthday! In short, what you can expect are 2 very cordial people with treasures of dogs, cats and more, in a heavenly place in the Algarve of Portugal.

    Debbie2019-06-26T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed in this beautiful place for 10 days and had a wonderful time. The premises were even prettier than we had expected from the photos. They are located in the middle of nowhere and it is absolutely calm and beautiful there. You definitely need a car to get there though. Stéphane and Pascal gave us a warm welcome and were very helpful throughout our stay. We also felt that they were very relaxed and much respecting our privacy/giving us our own space. One evening Stéphane even brought us some homemade antipasti by Pascal (delicious!) which was great! The apartment - a small cottage about 30m from the main house - was extraordinary clean and we immediately felt at home. I would say it is perfect for 3-4 persons but there is enough space for 5-6 persons altogether. There are many little shadowy and sunny places to sit together on the premises which is really cool. We were provided with everything we needed and our towels and bed linen were changed in the middle of our stay which we did not expect. We relaxed at the pool a lot but also went on a couple of day trips to Faro, Lagos, Alcoutim. The west coast is great for surfing and hiking. The South is more touristy but pretty nevertheless. I hope we will come back one day!!

    Wiebke2019-06-08T00:00:00Z
  • It is a very cute house, with all things that you need. The house and the surroundings are even better than the pictures show. We had a lovely week and our 2 year old daughter totally enjoyed the little bath tub she had, the pool and the two fun dogs. Stephane and Pascal were busy all the time to make everything look even nicer and to arrange things for us to make our stay even more comfortable. It's a lovely area and very peaceful. We hope to be back one day!

    Aitri2019-05-28T00:00:00Z

  • Stéphane and Pascal made our stay an unforgettable week. Always available, care, always smile ... The place is beautiful, relaxing at will, far from the noise of the noise and the crowd. Ideal to rest, make beautiful walks, enjoy the moment. And then there are the dog toys, Rex and Nuggets, just so endearing. Run there with your eyes closed .... you will love, adore them .... Thanks thanks thanks ...

    Jean Philippe2019-04-08T00:00:00Z
  • Unfortunate with a flu for the beginning of our stay, we enjoyed feeling comfortable and comfortably installed at Stéphane and Pascal, as at home! Stéphane and Pascal were particularly available and considerate with us. We enjoyed this quiet parenthesis, surrounded by nature, and the beautiful blue sky in the middle of January. Our 2 year old son enjoyed the dogs of the house!

    Camille2019-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful weekend, the location is great, quiet between the nature, a warm bath in the jacuzzi was very good option for the windy days, also walk up hill to enjoy the landscape and beautiful sunset view, Stephane is very kind, he helped us always when we needed, the grill next to the pool area is perfect! Thank so much Stephane!

    Morenos, Distrito de Faro, Portugal

    Well appointed apartment with two double beds in bedroom and big sofa bed in living room. Private covered terrace with views to the garden.
    O Pequeno Castelo, the Little Castle, offers you B&B in double rooms and self-catering apartments off the beaten track in a friendly and homely setting. You will find us only ten minutes by car from the beach of Pedras d´el Rei and 4 miles from the picturesque town of Tavira. At the Little Castle you can enjoy your holidays in a pastoral area away from mass-tourism in a true Portuguese atmosphere. There are excellent walking tracks where spectacular scenery and gently rolling hills offer you the chance to get to know the country and its people.
    Santo Estevão (Saint Stephen), a typical Algarvian village is only about one mile or a fifteen minute walk along orchards of carobs, figs, oranges, almonds and olives. In the village you will find a small but very good restaurant, coffee shops, mini-markets, post-office, chemist and cash point . Tavira, the most exquisite town on the south coast and one of the loveliest in Portugal is worth more then one visit. The medieval arcades, graceful cloisters and ancient walls of Tavira´s mansions, castle, churches and monasteries frame handsome piazzas. Coming across the seven arched roman bridge you may wonder how Tavira has kept its back firmly against the tide of modern development. If ever the lure of the ocean dulls you will find that the wooded hills of the serra behind Tavira with its picturesque little villages offer beautiful and unspoiled terrain for exploring and walking. Small restaurants invite to get to know the typical dishes of the region and its excellent wines. Discover the Eastern Algarve with its all year round warm climate where temperatures even in winter never drop below 14 C and most days you will be able to go for long walks or to sunbathe on one of the long sandy beaches. In summer however the temperature may reach 28 - 30 C, in July and August even higher and you will enjoy the clean water of the Atlantic in Europe’s unique natural reserve, Ria Formosa.
  • We loved our stay at O Pequeno Castelo. The setting in the rolling hills of the Algarve was absolutely beautiful. Joe's place is quiet and peaceful-a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of Tavira. He gave us very clear directions to his place. Our sparkling clean accommodations were beautiful, cozy, quaint and decorated with style and charm. We wished we'd had more time to just hang out at this beautiful place! We loved having breakfast at the table just outside our door, surrounded by the pretty trees and flowering bushes. It was very quiet and private, with very comfortable beds. We wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you, Joe, your place is a gem.

    Elizabeth2019-11-09T00:00:00Z
  • Cosy and cute apartment; perfect for a 5 day break in October. We'll equipped with a nice pool. We loved Tavira and the area around the apartment; much nicer than a lot of the other Algarve resorts. Joe was helpful and kind. Thoroughly recommended.

  • Our stay at Kerstin and Joe's place was really wonderful. It is a little oasis hidden nearby Santo Estevao, very calm and peaceful. The pool is lovely and colorful plants surround the area and the building. On our first evening, we enjoyed a delicious vegan dinner, prepared only for us on a balcony with a beautiful view into the valley. As it was our first night in Portugal, it was especially great to have this option and not having to search for vegan food elsewhere. Kerstin and Joe were very friendly hosts, gave us good tips for the area and reacted fast to every question! We can totally recommend it and would always visit again.

    Melanie2019-08-28T00:00:00Z

Lovely to sit outside in the evening and in the morning with a creeping garden around, with nectarines and fragrant flowers. The kids loved the pool. Will be happy to return.

Also there live two cats and two very nice dogs.

    Julia2019-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • Casa do Prego is a very cozy and furnished with much love and art typical Portuguese country house. We also enjoyed the garden very much. Have eaten ourselves with fresh figs and almonds directly from the tree :) Our children loved to have so many animals around them! There are two very nice dogs and three cats that are just as lovely, as well as a frog and an aquarium. The kids did not want to leave the Casa! Too bad that Martim could not be there at the time, we would have liked to meet him and also like to potter with him in the Casa's own pottery workshop! It was a great week at Casa do Prego and we would recommend it to anyone visiting this wonderful place.

  • We stayed a week at Martim's place with our 3 year old and really enjoyed it. Beautiful, comfortable house and great location to explore Tavira and all the amazing beaches in the area. Martim, Helga and Mario where all very welcoming. Two very animated dogs on the property so must be comfortable with animals.

  • Martim's days were a dive into an ocean of warmth, kindness ... welcomed with pure genuine familiarity Martim's home was my paradise ... and thanks to Helga for her precise and kind presence ... . Located a few kilometers from the center of Tavira, the Casa do Prego is surrounded by fruit trees, flowers, plants and a splendid vegetable garden! A warm country house with a fireplace for a sweet company ... and everything you need for long stays ... Obrigada por tudo que eu estava bem and gostei muito! Hi Martim!

  • A well-equipped kitchen, generous living and sleeping area, Nice view of orange groves, Beautiful walks in the nature, which are within walking distance. Beaches and the beautiful town of Tavira can be reached quickly by car. We have had the luck to meet only friendly Portugese.

    Edgar2018-11-05T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent place to stay if your in the area of Tavira. The house is well equipped with a country rustic feel about it. Easy to find and a great place to chill out away from the tourist crowds.

  • If you would like to have a slice of the traditional country life, but still be close to town, this is the spot. Sunsets, orange orchard and wild flora all around on the top of a hill. We really meant to go out to dinner, but the grocery supply was amazing, and the dinner setting at Martim's too nice to pass up. Must love dogs, and cats. he has a nice little group.

    Jane2018-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • It was really great at Martim! Especially the dinners with him and the star gazing! Martim can cook very well and he has very nice dogs! Luna and Mavie

    Modern architecture in rural space, in fantastic country-side, but close to the beach - 7km from Tavira center, with excelent access to the house. The surroundings are full of nature, animals and plants, a big stream ends on the property.
    The perfect spot - close enough to the beach, but far away enough to have peace and fantastic nature all around. And also the confort of the house, the gardens full of fruits to our guests, aswell the vegetable garden, good and comunicative hoasts as neighbours and a very, very good swimming-pool, a wonderfull wood Sauna. Jacuzzi not working well at the moment. Hope to solve the problem soon!
    We donnot have so many neighbours around us, but they are friendly and comunicative. We have a coffe shop 300 meters up the road.
  • Lovley place if you have a car! Very nice with the garden and orange trees!

  • Our family of 6 stayed in Orlando’s fabulous house for a week. The house was well equipped, lovely bedrooms with air conditioning and en suite bathrooms. The garden is beautifully terraced with peaceful seating areas and BBQ and dining area and then drops down to a fabulous pool (cleaned with salt not chlorine) with sun beds. Orlando let us have use of his garden produce, lovely peppers, tomatoes, figs, oranges etc and was helpful in giving us local information, basically a good all round egg. We would definitely return

    Mark2019-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • Orlando, the first thing my daughter asked, today, when she woke up, was if we could go get some oranges! Really, they managed to create a fantastic space, congratulations! The bar was very high ...

    Pedro2019-06-22T00:00:00Z
  • Orlando is very friendly and very hospitable. Your dogs are very friends and sensational. The face is very comfortable. Rooms very clean. The pool is phenomenal.

    Claudio2019-05-28T00:00:00Z
  • Orlando’s place is a hidden gem outside Tavira and perfect family home for travellers with a car. We were a family of four adults and two kids and just loved Orlando’s home and the peace and quiet. The land around Orlando’s property is beautiful and a highlight was picking our oranges every morning for breakfast. The kids loved exploring outside and playing with the dogs if they were out. The pool was also a highlight of our stay! Orlando and his family made us feel very welcome and the communication was the best I’ve had as an Airbnb traveller. He was always there to answer questions on restaurants and touring suggestions with all the local inside tips! The house is great - perfect layout so everyone and have their own space or be together. We enjoyed many a meal around the dining table. The drive into Tavira was easy and took about 7 mins. Great access to highway to travel around the Algarve. We will be back!

    Jayne2019-04-21T00:00:00Z
  • Nice house, comfortable, well located for visiting the Algarve. Orlando is available and gives very good addresses. The garden is amazing and can pick your own oranges for breakfast is fabulous!

    Isabelle2019-04-13T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful architecture house with all the comfort associated. The garden is splendid with different nooks to stroll and relax. Providing sunbathing in the countryside to observe the landscape and the autumn glow. As a bonus, freshly picked fruits to eat on the spot. Umhhh the persimmons

  • We have just enjoyed an amazing 2 night stay at the treehouse. It was everything we had hoped for and more. Such an elegant property with a lovely host. Katja went above and beyond to make sure we had a great stay. From her relaxed manner of check in to bringing us fresh eggs for our breakfast. We slept brilliant both nights, not too hot, even though there are great sun spots during the day. A marvellous stay, would recommend to anyone.

    Euan2019-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • You can only recommend, was there 5 nights and I felt very comfortable

    Sandra2019-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful cabin, off-grid in a beautifully picturesque setting. Enjoyed a lovely bottle of wine in the pool cooking off after a hot day. And then a BBQ with a fantastic view. What a great way to end a holiday! We will definitely be back!

    David2019-07-06T00:00:00Z
  • Fat plus on the Globetrotter scale! I will definitely come back! This is really a gift ... this place, this hospitality and this wonderful house

  • Great hospitality with many advises from Chris Thanks a lot!

    Pauline2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • Chris's place is in a good location for visiting the area. It's all you could want in terms of comfort. Chris and Debbie are great hosts and give you lots of useful information. Ask them about the flamingos if you are visiting in the Autumn!

    Rosemary2019-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our two nights here as our first stop in the Algarve. Chris was a fantastic host who made sure our stay was perfect. We loved the pomegranates from his yard. This apartment has a huge outdoor space - beautiful spot looking out to nature for a glass of wine/bites and, in my case, some yoga. :) Inside is a large space with full kitchen, including washer, and living area. The bedrooms are big with comfortable beds. Shutters provided dark. The restaurant right across the street has a full menu/bar - food was delicious and inexpensive. Tavira is only about 5-7 minutes by car and a wonderful town to visit and explore. The apartment is on a busier road but this didn't effect our stay at all. Chris was prompt with answers to any questions and was a pleasure to work with. We really enjoyed meeting him and his wife, Debra. They were/are next door so if we needed anything, no problem but otherwise left us to enjoy our holiday. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks, Chris!

    Diane2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • The house is very nice, with large spaces and a big and quiet terrace. Chris and Deborah are lovely people, attentive and helpful and nothing better can be expected from an host. The position is good, and there's also the possibility to park, anyway maybe is not the best option if you don't have a car; in case you don't, there's a good restaurant nearby, reachable by walking. We recommend without any doubt to stay here and we will accomodate again at Chris and Deb's house if we will come back to Algarve's area in the future.

    Tavira, Portugal

    Our well appointed and air-conditioned apartment comprises bedroom (linen and towels provided), shower room, living room with digital satellite TV, well-equipped kitchen and private covered terrace with hammocks and sea views.
    Welcome to the Eastern Algarve O Pequeno Castelo, the Little Castle, offers you B&B in double rooms and self-catering apartments off the beaten track in a friendly and homely setting. You will find us only ten minutes by car from the beach of Pedras d´el Rei and 4 miles from the picturesque town of Tavira. Santo Estevão (Saint Stephen), a typical Algarvian village is only about one mile or a fifteen minute walk along orchards of carobs, figs, oranges, almonds and olives. In the village you will find a small but very good restaurant, coffee shops, mini-markets, post-office, chemist and cash point . Enjoy your breakfast on the veranda with a splendid view over the Atlantic. At the Little Castle you can enjoy your holidays in a pastoral area away from mass-tourism in a true Portuguese atmosphere. There are excellent walking tracks where spectacular scenery and gently rolling hills offer you the chance to get to know the country and its people.
    Tavira, the most exquisite town on the south coast and one of the loveliest in Portugal is worth more then one visit. The medieval arcades, graceful cloisters and ancient walls of Tavira´s mansions, castle, churches and monasteries frame handsome piazzas. Coming across the seven arched roman bridge you may wonder how Tavira has kept its back firmly against the tide of modern development. If ever the lure of the ocean dulls you will find that the wooded hills of the serra behind Tavira with its picturesque little villages offer beautiful and unspoiled terrain for exploring and walking. Small restaurants invite to get to know the typical dishes of the region and its excellent wines. Discover the Eastern Algarve with its all year round warm climate where temperatures even in winter never drop below 14 C and most days you will be able to go for long walks or to sunbathe on one of the long sandy beaches. In summer however the temperature may reach 28 - 30 C, in July and August even higher and you will enjoy the clean water of the Atlantic in Europe’s unique natural reserve, Ria Formosa.
  • Very sweet apartment with a pool and view that is to dream about! Absolutely recommended for people traveling with a car in South Portugal (it's a bit hard to reach without using the motorway but that is part of the experience).

    Marie2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • A place to relax and the body in the house own pool beautiful can hardly be.

    Susanne2019-07-10T00:00:00Z
  • Loved this air BnB. Beautiful location and great facilities. Loved the pool, even though it was shared, we often had it to ourselves. Joe was a great host, when he had to go to central Tavira he also gave us a lift there and back and made recommendations of where to eat. We really loved our stay. Thank you.

    Zoe2018-09-06T00:00:00Z
