A secluded countryside villa near Tavira, Eastern Algarve, sleeps 6.

 The villa is set in 3.8 acres of olive & carob trees, with no other letting villas nearby, within easy reach of many sandy beaches & 30 mins. from Faro Airport.  Set in rolling hills with panoramic views from the pool & terrace, which is, however completely private, quiet & peaceful. 

Villa Tranquila is five minutes' drive from Santa Catarina or 30 mins walk (unlit).  There's a small daily market, minimarkets, a chemist, a papershop, a cashmachine, bars & cafes & a petrol station. 

Set between Tavira & Sao Bras the house is a good base for exploring, bird watching, walking & cycling.   There's a wide choice of sandy beaches & the nearest waterpark is 30 mins. away. Many beaches are on "ilhas", sand banks reached by ferries. One by a pontoon bridge & a little train!  Others are acessable on foot & some have boardwalks. There  are also several golf courses. The towns of Tavira, Faro, Estoi & Moncarapacho  are interesting to explore, while there are many lovely coastal villages as well.  The Rio Formoso National Park is a must for nature lovers.

All the accomodation is on the ground floor, other than the roof terrace!   All the floors other than the bathrooms. have quarry tiles which are hand made in the village.   There is plenty of parking/ turning space near the house under the shade of a large tree. There is also a car port to the back of the garage. The house may not be suitable for small children or toddlers, please ask.   

The discreet owners, who live nextdoor, are on hand for help or advice.  They have a few cats, who are present but not intrusive.
