Brisa do Rio - Eastern Algarve

Brisa do Rio

Area: Eastern Algarve, Tavira   Bedrooms: 2   Sleeps: 4

Charming Rural Retreat, A/C, Private Pool & Beautiful Views - 11km from the Coastal Town of Tavira!

Deep within the ‘serra’, just 20 minutes drive from the charming coastal town of Tavira and along a track carved into the hills, Brisa do Rio lies in a little hamlet of 6 cottages at the heart of this verdant valley flanked by undulating hills which are blanketed with lush Mediterranean shrubbery, tall eucalyptus, ancient olives and sweet-scented pines. Bursting with rustic charm and offering an unpretentious mix of traditional materials and modern touches, this is a tranquil and enviable environment from which to unwind and relax under bright blue sunny Algarvian skies.

Inside, the ground floor offers ample sized rooms with a twin bedroom and separate shower room. Living areas include an open plan country style kitchen, dining area and a comfortably furnished, colourfully decorated living area. All areas provide easy access to various outdoor terraces. The principal en suite bedroom, reached via a narrow staircase, offers a private sun terrace from which to enjoy tremendous rural vistas.

Outside, a lawn area is bordered by various colourful plants and bougainvillea adorns the pool side terrace. There are steps up to the gated pool and the barbecue area will delight foodies in the party.

For basic provisions, in nearby Picota (5km), there is a small mini-market and a traditional restaurant popular with locals. A little further down to the coast brings travellers to charming Tavira (11km), offering all amenities and a stunning 11km island beach. Further afield, head east to the handsome border town of Vila Real do Santo Antonio (43km) for excellent river side eateries as well as excursions along the Rio Guadiana. Or head west to the regional capital, Faro, offering a well-preserved old town ideal for enjoying lazy afternoons spent meandering ancient, cobbled streets. Faro international airport is 46km.

Access to the villa is via 2.5km of unsurfaced rough track.
*Solar Pool may be heated at extra cost £110 per week (not usually required in summer weeks).
Please note the pool is gated and the pool surround is fairly narrow, so younger children will need extra supervision.

Accessed via 2.5 km of unsurfaced track carved into the hills, leading to a small hamlet deep within the ‘serra’ just 25 mins drive from the coastal town of Tavira, offering all amenities and a stunning 11 km island beach. Sitting on the banks of the Rio Gilão and looking out across the expansive salt flats of the Ria Formosa Natural Park, the charming town of Tavira oozes old world charm. With a long history dating back to Roman times, there are many a fine mansion and graceful townhouse on display. Cobbled streets, castle ramparts, beautiful gardens and an abundant and growing list of excellent eateries are but a few of the many attractions on offer. The morning market is a must for foodies while a fun ferry trip takes visitors to the impressive ten-kilometre-long island beach. With all this on offer, then it is easy to see why some say that Tavira is the loveliest town on the Algarve. In nearby Picota (5 km), there is a small mini-market and a traditional restaurant popular with locals.

A car is needed when booking this accommodation.
