Tavira 3 bedroom countryside villa with swimming pool
Located within a short 10 minute drive from the beautiful coastal town of Tavira in the East Algarve, is this particularly charming and very well built 3 bedroom villa with swimming pool. Built in 2006 on the footprint of an old Portuguese farmhouse and set amongst an idyllic & mature natural landscape with views of the surrounding hills, this private villa radiates authentic Portuguese living. The south facing property, with driveway and ample parking, is positioned on the elevated part of the plot of land. The villa, which is flooded with natural sunlight from the numerous windows and patio doors, offers a ground floor with a spacious fully fitted & equipped kitchen leading to an inviting and open plan living and dining room with open fireplace and patio doors leading out to the pool and sun terrace. A corridor from the living room leads to a double guest bedroom and a further twin bedroom both of which share the guest bathroom with shower. A good size utility room and a private study complete the ground floor. Internal stairs lead to the first floor fully reserved for the master suite including landing with patio doors to the private sun balcony, the master bedroom with corridor length dressing room that leads to the large master bathroom with bath and shower. Externally the property boasts a natural and low maintenance, yet mature garden, a swimming pool with beautifully tiled surround.
Set on either side of the meandering Rio Gilão and affectionately known as “The Venice of The Algarve”, Tavira is arguably the Algarve's most charming town. The old Roman bridge, the ruins of a hilltop castle and an astonishing 37 churches with the oldest dating back to the Middle Ages, are among many of Tavira´s historic attractions. An enticing collection of restaurants, cafes, bars and shops makes it the perfect sunny Portuguese destination or as an excellent base for exploring the Algarve’s eastern reaches. Tavira is ideal for wandering and exploring the ancient city with its many cobblestone streets, hidden green gardens and tree lined squares. There’s a small, active fishing port and a modern market with Tavira also being the launching point for the stunning, unspoilt beaches of Ilha de Tavira.
There are several great beaches near Tavira. The coast in this area is great for long seaside walks and for bathing, as its waters are warmer than anywhere else in the Algarve.
Ilha de Cabanas: This is an island in front of the town Cabanas de Tavira, with a spectacular long and narrow beach. The sand is white and the island feels like paradise. Great for long beach walks.
Ilha de Tavira (also known as Tavira Island): Is famous for being one of the best beaches near Tavira. The beach is quite sandy and the sand is almost white. Tavira Island stretches for approximately 11 kilometres and is just 3 kilometres south from the town of Tavira. There are restaurants and the beach also holds a Blue Flag, showing the quality of the beach. It is a great destination for a day trip.
Praia do Barril: Accessible on foot or by train, this beach is known for its bizarre anchor cemetery with over 100 anchors in front of the beach. The anchors were from the tuna fishing community, which disappeared when the bluefin tuna moved to other waters. The beach itself is also very big and also incredibly beautiful.
There are many top rated restaurants in Tavira. If you like food, you won’t be disappointed here. From local cuisine to fine dining, you can find it all in the area.
