To you personally, what is so special about Casa Algarve?
Casa Algarve’s exclusive location provides full privacy, allowing you to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life and immerse yourself in the natural environment. The unobstructed views of the coast and the horizon beyond are simply breathtaking. Across all four seasons, you can witness magnificent sunrises and sunsets, each one painting a different picture and imbuing the landscape with its own special character. Whether you are looking to relax, rejuvenate, or simply connect with nature, our villa provides the perfect setting to do so.
Designed in the 1980’s by a Luso-Brazilian architect, the four-bedroom villa was fully renovated in 2021. Set across a single story, this contemporary villa boasts stunning garden and ocean views from every room. Its open floor plan allows for an abundance of natural light to flow in while highlighting the sleek and modern design elements.
All of the bedrooms are equipped with king-size beds with either a built-in, oversized headboard or padded upholstery hanging from the wall. Framing the bed are two bedside tables with task lamps, power sockets and USB ports.
All of the bedrooms have private bathrooms (three of which are ensuites) and these are definitely a feature of the house. Surrounded by such a fantastic landscape, we had no alternative but to link them with the outdoors via a fully glazed facade. They boast vertical blinds for privacy that can be opened or closed, as well as travertine-clad floors and walls. All of the bathrooms have double vanities and generous rain showers.
With panoramic views, the meticulously decorated living room and modern kitchen are ideal for pleasant evenings with family and friends. Stretching to the Ria Formosa, the private garden includes a sheltered al fresco dining area and a private swimming pool with breathtaking sights.
The sheltered, alfresco dining area is the perfect place to enjoy a meal and is ideal for intimate dinners or family meals. Our private swimming pool offers breathtaking views and is the perfect place to relax and unwind. And for those who want to spend some quiet time by themselves, we have secluded areas that are perfect for contemplation.
We offer a full range of amenities that include air conditioning, Wi-Fi, a fully equipped kitchen, and comfortable bedding. And if you enjoy cooking outdoors, our barbecue area is the ideal place to cook up a storm.
To make your arrival extra special, we provide a curated welcome basket that’s filled with wine and cheese. This basket is a delicious and indulgent treat that will set the tone for your stay.
Available at the property are bicycles and kayaks for our guests to use. External activities include sailing, kite surfing, horse riding, fishing, tennis and yoga.
If you’re into golf, you can play a round at the Benamor Golf Course designed by Sir Henry Cotton or take your pick from the two Jack Nicklaus-designed championship courses at the Monte Rei Golf Course. Within the Ria Formosa Natural Park is the 18-hole Quinta da Ria Golf Course, which extends down to the tidal lagoon. Also nearby (around 45 minutes away) are the Quinta do Lago and Vale de Lobo golf courses.
The closest beach to Casa Algarve is Praia do Barril, which is accessed via a small floating bridge that spans the Ria Formosa. Nearby is Santa Luzia, from where boats depart for Terra Estreita. Praia de Cacela Velha is another wonderful beach and is considered one of the best in the Algarve. It also requires a boat trip across the lagoon from Sítio da Fábrica.
Our concierge will be available to guide you in the right direction and come up with suggestions. All independent activities in the villa such as massages, yoga classes and boat trips are available only upon request.
Casa Algarve is located in the Ria Formosa Natural Park, a region that is well known for its rich gastronomy, particularly seafood and fish. The Ria Formosa estuary is a labyrinth of canals, islands, marshland and sandy beaches that extend for 60 kilometres along the Algarve coast, between the beaches of Garrão and Manta Rota.
If you love the sun and the sea, you will encounter genuine paradise here! From west to east are the islands of Faro, Barreta, Culatra, Armona and Tavira, all of which are relatively deserted and with extensive stretches of sand.
Tavira’s coastline is over 18 kilometres long and offers fine, white sand beaches and an average water temperature of around 22 degrees Celsius. Compared to the Western Algarve, the beaches in the Eastern Algarve are less rocky.
Tavira is a charming and historic town that is famed for its picturesque beauty and relaxed atmosphere. Its location on the east coast of the Algarve, near the mouth of the Gilão River, provides a unique setting for visitors to enjoy both the coastline and the interior of the region.
The town itself is steeped in history, with its origins dating back to the Roman era. Its rich cultural heritage is evident in its beautiful architecture and monuments. Tavira is also known for its many lovely beaches, including Praia do Barril, Praia de Ilha de Tavira, and Praia da Terra Estreita, which offer a range of activities such as swimming, sunbathing, and water sports.
Overall, Tavira is a special destination that combines natural beauty, cultural richness, and a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, making it the perfect place to experience the best of the Algarve.
The good thing about the Algarve is that you can enjoy beautifully warm weather for around eight months of the year from mid-March to mid-November. Ria Formosa Natural Park is located on the Atlantic coast but its microclimate is considered Mediterranean, characterised by warm, dry summers and moderate winters. Having said that, the high season is still from June to September.
