About

We have owned Sinos Villa for 17 years. First visited the area when friends purchased in Tavira in 2004. Fell in love with the area and the people. For a relaxing lifestyle and super climate the Algarve is hard to beat

We had a great time at this lovely villa. The saltwater pool is fantastic and the landscaping is beautiful; we spent ages outdoors. The fruit trees were an added bonus, as was the generous welcome pack and presence of basics such as toilet rolls and bin bags. These little details make the world of difference. The welcome from Smartavillas was efficient and very friendly and I’d highly recommend Algaserra for airport transfers (it was only €90 return for a large minibus for eight people and their luggage!). The walk to into the old town was nice, taking about 20 minutes, and the choice of restaurants there was very good. It was nice after dinner to walk back but Ubers were easy to come by too. Most evenings my in-laws taxied back with two of our children while we walked back with the other two. There was no need to hire a car unless you want to explore the Algarve more. Walking to the Continente supermarket within the Tavira Plaza shopping centre took less than twenty minutes and we then Uber-ed back with our shopping. The kids loved being able to use Netflix and the WiFi to escape from the midday sun and enjoyed shooting hoops in the basketball net too. The kitchen was really well equipped and the aircon was wonderful for sleeping in the hot week we had. The area was really quiet apart from the Saturday when the nearby camping/caravan site seemed to have some entertainment, but with the windows and shutters closed (which we did to prevent mosquitos coming in) we couldn’t hear it. The bedding and bath towels were lovely and clean; the pool towels looked brand new and were very soft and luxurious. We’d happily stay again if we revisit the Algarve and would highly recommend Sinos Villa.

Really enjoyed the villa. Stand-outs: - great pool including the water temp. - very clean - well-appointed kitchen - generous welcome pack of wine x 2, bread, cheese, butter - two lots of UK sockets for recharging, one upstairs and one down - quiet vicinity (not sure whether the adjoining park would get busy in high summer)? - easy walk to town -

Thanks for taking time to review and delighted you both enjoyed the Villa The adjoining park is actually owned by the police and policemen can holiday there in the summer months but they are always quiet . Very reassuring for us on the security aspect.

Pros: Lovely pool, nice space in villa Cons: Bit far from supermarket and town. We all (from 2 households) had a problem with bites! Pool cleaned on our last night which meant we could not use it from 5pm

Whilst pleased to note that guests enjoyed their stay a little surprised about the comments. The Villa is a 10 minute walk to cafes, bars , mini market and 20 minute walk to town centre. The distances are in the property details. Our guests staying before and after gave no reports of insect bites but hardly think in a hot climate these would be the responsibility of property owners..

Tavira is a beautiful place, the Villa is about a 15 min walk to town, the villa itself is lovely bit big for just 2 of us, but we had a lovely time.

Family holiday with daughter and her friend. Embarrassingly big for just the four of us The villa was very well equipped. Little extras like two hair dryers, a lovely welcome pack Including wine) and beach towels were good. Lemons were available from a tree in the garden, sadly oranges weren't ripe when we were there. Both the owner and Smart Villas (local agent) were very helpful. We weren't bother by mosquitos which was a bonus The villa is very spacious and would comfortably accommodate 8 adults although more sun beds would be required for all to sun bathe at the same time. A lovely pool and garden area We found it took approx 25 mins to walk to the town centre. If I had to point out some potential improvements, there are two or three little areas where plaster/paint has peeled off the wall (around the kitchen door and in a bedroom), beds squeaked, fridge going rusty and some rust around the upstairs shower, all what we would class as a little bit tired. Having said that still a nice comfortable villa

This villa is absolutely amazing. All of the four bedrooms are spacious with Air conditioning and wardrobes or hanging space with hangers for your clothes and plenty of drawer space too. The kitchen is fully equipped with a coffee machine, washing machine and dishwasher. Cable tv also if you want to watch a movie. The bathrooms were spotless and roomy. There were plenty of towels too. The upstairs Sun terrace was magnificent as was the pool area with 6 sun loungers. The best surprise were the 2 orange, 1 lemon, 1 lime and mandarin trees so you could eat fresh fruit or squeeze your own orange juice every day. There is also an outside barbecue and dining table. The shops are only a 5min drive away and there are plenty of restaurants nearby too. I would definitely stay here again.
