Country house overview - owner's description
Casa de Campo is a old farmhouse from the beginning of the 1900´s, that was carefully restored between 1998 and 2000. During the restoration work we tried to preserve all the old architectural existing elements, and at the same time offer the comfort of a actual holiday house. During the restoration the farmhouse was divided into 2 houses that can be rented together or separately. The house has a big terrace with a large divided porch that gives you access to the Garden and to the orange plantation. On the big Patio you find sun beds and sunshades, where you can discretely and privately have some sunbaths. Under one antique olive tree is a barbecue where you can grill the freshest fishes from the marketplaces of Tavira or Olhão.
The property has 1000m2 with several fruit trees like (Orange trees, Peach trees, Figs trees, Olive trees, pomegranate), and also several aromatic herbs and green tees, that can be picked up by the house guests. The house provides a outdoor parking place for 3 Cars.
Casa de Campo is peacefully and privately located in a rural area, close to the small rural village of Amaro-Gonçalves (200m), and only 8 km away from the Venice of Algarve “Tavira”.

2 out of 2 people recommend staying here
We had an enjoyable stay at the Casa Campo Velha in May 2011. The villa was excellent value for money and I would recommend it to a friend for a quiet, relaxing holiday in the Algarve. The description of the villa is accurate although it is semi-detached property. There was another couple staying next door when we stayed but there was ample private terrace and garden space so we didnt even notice them.
Best things about the villa:
1) quiet, rural setting - unspoilt Algarve
2) fresh orange juice (oranges picked from the grove)
3) BBQ and well equipped kitchen
4) personal touches on arrival (fresh flowers/herbs) and friendly owner
Things to consider if choosing this villa:
1) no air conditioning
2) need good directions to the villa as it is off the beaten track
3) no pool
4) need a car
If you are thinking of staying here a car is essential to access local shops and to visit towns such as Tavira (although the roads and driveway leading to the property are narrow so dont hire anything too wide!). Directions - we found that it was easiest to follow the signs to Fundo off the N125 between Pinheiro and Luz de Tavira, then take the second narrow (steel-pipe-sided) bridge on the right. The villa was approximately the 3rd property on the left and the keys could be obtained from Maria next door further up the road in the white house with blue doors and windows (as in the owners instructions).
The owners were very friendly and accommodating and provided us with directions to the best restaurants and places to visit. Tavira and Olhao were very pretty and it was easy to buy fresh meat, fish and vegetables to cook at the villa. Alcoutim on the Spanish border was also idyllic and not too far away. The beaches on the Ilha de Tavira and Ilha de Armona are superb and not to be missed!
In summary, this villa is ideal for independent couples or small families wanting to see the unspoilt Algarve. It is comfortable
but not luxurious or fussy, rural but not remote. We had a great time.
