Charming, rustic, homely family-run farmhouse on a hill overlooking Tavira and the sea. Property has plum trees, fig trees, almond trees, olive trees, grapevines, some citrus, lots of beautiful flowering oleander, wild flowers and some fragrant wild thyme. There are 2 dogs and a donkey on-site and a little play area for children. Rosario and her daughter Ines and their staff are lovely. The property was clean and comfortable and felt tranquil and safe. Ideal for those who enjoy privacy, solitude, nature and easy access to facilities in a nearby town. The sea view room was spacious, had a jacuzzi tub and a private terrace with sun nearly all day. The property generally had sun all day. The plunge pool was a good temperature. Breakfast included some fresh and tasty items such as fresh orange juice, fig bread and goat cheese. Dinner during my stay consisted of octopus cataplana (smelled really nice) and black pork and seemed suited to those who enjoy hearty local seafood and meat dishes. It’s a 20 minute walk to Tavira town, including a 3 minute walk downhill through the farm along a narrow footpath. It’s about a 25 minute walk to the ferry to Tavira island which is well-organised with endless white sandy beaches, restaurants and a campsite. The beach was pretty but very windy in the afternoon and there was a lot of seaweed in the water. I understand it’s generally less windy in the morning. Check taxi prices to and from Tavira, they can vary significantly.
