Villa to rent in Tavira, Algarve
Villa overview - owner's description
Lovely modern villa with PRIVATE POOL, gravel driveway, parking for 4 cars. 2 outdoor eating areas, garden & boule court, all the appliances you need to take things easy. Short drive to TOWN & BEACH
The villa is set on a hill on the edge of a tiny village in beautiful rural countryside, surrounded by trees, wildlife, rivers and walking/cycle tracks, you can count the cars going past per day (and the odd tractor!) and yet approximately10 minutes away is lovely AND lively Tavira and the beaches. Relaxation is the only thing on the menu, you can forget everything else.
The villa is big enough for socialising.. AND, for a bit of peace and quiet on one of the private balconies away from the kids with book in one hand a large glass of wine in the other.
Drive up the gravel driveway with parking for 4 or 5 cars and step into the entrance hall which has a big storage cupboard for your empty cases and also the safe for your passports, next to that is a visitors bathroom and then 2 bedrooms (one has twin beds and the other 3 SINGLE BEDS ) with en-suite bathrooms.
Through the door into the dining area sits a big oak table with a stone wall behind and sliding glass doors onto the raised decking area where you will find another dining area for evenings eating under the stars, come back inside...
Into the living area you have a double sided woodburner, TV, CD/i pod player, DVD player and loads of dvds' for your entertainment and that is next to the lovely large kitchen and of course there is everything to make you holiday easy, washing machine, dishwasher, american fridge freezer, fan oven, hob, microwave oven etc.
From the kitchen you have stunning views and steps down to the pool, which by the way is gated and fenced for the safety of the children.
Around the pool is part grass and part wood deck, quality sun loungers and plenty of stuff for the kids to play with in the pool.
Still outside and just round the corner we have a large BBQ with more dining tables all under the shade of the raised deck, a great (and cool) place to eat lunch or just to lounge out of the midday sun, surrounded by jasmine and honeysuckle it smells great too.
Sill under the raised deck there is a football table and bench seat to watch the action from and that leads to the garden which is the opposite side of the villa from the pool, and in the afternon has shade on it and lovely views, there is also a swingball there too.
Back in the house and upstairs there are two more double bedrooms both with private balconies, great for un-interupted afternoon naps!! En-suite bathrooms, (by-the way ALL bedrooms have Air-con fitted) which you will probably need in the height of summer for a perfect nights sleep.
Around 3-400 metres walk away is a little local bar, a drink is CHEAPER than chips! and they also sell snacks and ice creams.
MAD ABOUT CYCLING?...
This really is a cyclists mecca, Many TOUR teams come out to this area to train, there are great hill climbs and paved roads, hardly any traffic and of course fabulous weather, indeed the Tour of Portugal has had sections in this area and Tavira have their own tour team, and the villa is in the heart of it,.. more of a MOUNTAIN BIKER?...
Mountain bikers you're not left out by any means, again, right outside the villa there are loads of fabulous tracks
all over the place from directly outside the villa, through shallow rivers (dried up in the summer) a nearby forrest and miles and miles of countryside.
We can sort out bike hire out for you by the way and the company can deliver and collect at no extra cost.
If WALKING is more your thing, you can use the same tracks as the mountain bikes, they will take you through orange and olive groves past the odd cafe through tiny villages and into the middle of nowhere.
One track takes you to a nearby forest another to a local reservoir, (have a swim if you like) some to the coast and some along dried up river beds, spend all day, a few hours, or just a half hour before breakfast, it's your holiday!
If you love nature you are in the right place, last year whilst talking to a guest by the pool a large buzzard hovered directly overhead and pretty low too, this year while out on walks we spotted a pretty rare GOLDEN ORIOLE, Eagles, Buzzards, woodpeckers, Partridge, etc.
There are wild boar here (I've never seen one) Chameleons, NON poisonous snakes, lizards and last week an Egyptian Mongoose ran across my path (no he wasn't lost, they do live here but it's quite rare to see one.) If I am here I may be able to do a guided walk and charge €20 per hour regardless of the amount of people.
Depending on the time of year you can be picking figs, blackberries, almonds, grapes and a few lemons for the evening G&T.
Just down the road are some Horse riding stables, I think a half day trek is €20 and a 30 min lesson €10 (all the details are on our website). And we can book it for you if you like.
Down by the coast, you can go Kayaking along the lagoons, sea fishing, wind surfing and riding the banana boats etc.
