This lovely, simply decorated chalet is located in a small hamlet about a 5-minute drive from Sta Catarina Fonte Bispo and a 35-minute drive from Faro airport. It is in a small vineyard, in a quiet, unspoiled area, ideal for getting away from it all.

The space

This lovely, simply decorated chalet is located in a small hamlet about a 5-minute drive from Sta Catarina Fonte Bispo and a 35-minute drive from Faro airport. It is in a small vineyard, in a quiet, unspoiled area, ideal for a couple or couple with a child, who enjoys the peace of a beautiful countryside.

The chalet has a private porch with views of the vineyard and garden with swimming pool. There are several patios and places to sit and relax, and a dining area with a BBQ for guest use.

The Portuguese farmhouse of the owners is nearby on the same plot, and they are available to answer all your questions.

The chalet has its own access from the car park, with steps up to the door, so it is not suitable for people with mobility problems. The swimming pool and guest loungers are available to guests of the chalet as well as guests who stay in the guestroom.

Discover its beautiful countryside with its wonderful nature and lovely, friendly people. Here one can buy their local honey and smoked sausages and hams. Kilometres of tracks to walk are scattered around the hillside adding to the tranquillity of this area. Short walks to a local cafe or longer walks with a bottle of wine and olives to savour while enjoying the fantastic views these hills have to offer. Or laze by the pool.

Taran is also an artist working with "Glass Fusing" in her little studio that was once a pig-sty. Her art has been widely exhibited around the Algarve but can also be purchased from her studio

There are also sandy beaches nearby (20-25 min.), in Fuseta and Barrill, and excellent golf courses as well. The area is perfect for walking. Recommended places to visit at only a 20 minutes drive include the charming town of Tavira with its castle ruins and the large fishing port of Olhã. The Nature Reserve Ria Formosa is also worth a visit.

The chalet is ca. 25 m2 consisting of a combined living/bed room with dining table and chairs.

There is TV With some English channels, DVD player, air conditioning, ceiling fan & MP3 player dock.

There is a fully fitted small kitchen with almost everything one may need for preparing breakfasts and snacks and meals. There is no microwave, but kettle, coffee maker, toaster, juice press, gas hob & oven, fridge with a freezer compartment and utensils.

Towels are supplied and changed twice weekly and bed linen changed weekly.

A cot and highchair can be rented for €4,-/day

The small bathroom has a toilet, washbasin & seperate shower room and a hair dryer is supplied.

There is also a large porch for relaxing or eating with table and chairs.
There is a 8mx4m swimming pool, ca. 1.3m deep, for your use with sun loungers and shade on the pool terrace. The pool is shared with guests in the guestroom. Around the property is a well maintained garden with various patios and places to sit and relax. There is a separate barbecue area with its own terrace and table and chairs.

As we live on the property will be available throughout the stay to answer any questions and give tips etc.

The East Algarve coastline is dominated by the nature reserve, the Ria Formosa. This is lagoon running east from Faro to Monte Rota. The most stunning beaches on this part of the coast are offshore and access to them is by various boats or water taxis or "little train". The closest beach, ca. 20 mins. by car, is Fuzeta. Fuzeta is a small town with bars and cafes and restaurants and a clean sandy beach. Fuzeta is unusual because it has an onshore beach and offshore beaches accessed by boats. Our favourite beach is Barril, 25 mins. by car, with a choice to walk to the offshore beach or take the little train which costs €1,50

The East Algarve, because of the building restrictions in the nature reserve, is not yet so spoiled by tourism and a lot of the towns and villages have still managed to maintain their original charm. Not least Tavira. Our favourite.

Spain is only ca. 40 mins. away by car so the area is also ideal as a base for exploring this area on both sides of the border. For example, Seville is only 90 mins away.

The property is built on sloping terrain and thus there are steps around the property and because of this it is unfortunately not suitable for people with mobility problems.

Due to its countryside location a car is highly recommended.

There is wireless internet Access.

At the moment there is no mobile phone signal (some phones however do work sometimes) but the phone companies are working on it.

Excellent spot if you're looking to get "off the beaten track" so to speak, and still be a short drive away from many amazing sites, shops and restaurants.

We greatly enjoyed the tastefully decorated, comfortable and charming chalet in the peaceful hills of Tavira and the friendly hospitality of Taran and Robert. A few walks nearby as well as visiting the beautiful villages, towns and beaches of eastern Algarve made for a wonderfully pleasant stay.

Robert and Tarran's place is in a beautiful, quiet setting - an oasis in the mountains. The chalet was well really comfortable, particularly the double bed. It was equipped with everything that we needed, and more. The local village (a 30 minute walk away) has some great little restaurants / bars; however, the location is off the beaten path, so a car is pretty much essential. Great for a romantic getaway for a couple. Would definitely stay here again.

The chalet is really beautiful and quite ideal for a short holliday so you can rest and run away from big cities. Robert and Tara are really good hosts and the house is well located and not far from Tavira. A place to recomend!

OK...where should we start?!? After a bit of searching for the exact spot we discovered a so much amazing and lovely place to live. Taran & Robert welcome us very lovely. They showed us the way to our little house which is a bit behind their own and on the way there we realized that we found a little paradise on earth. A very beautiful garden, nice pool, a area to have barbecue, pieces of wonderful glass art Taran is doning on her own and finally a full equippend very charming house is waiting for you. The view from your little terasse is amazing!Lots of superlative in that rewiev but that is simply what it is :-)

Robert and Taran were wonderfull hosts very attentive to any need of the guests but also very respectful of guests privacy. The Chale is a delicious place, beautiful and lovely decorated with such a good taste all over the place around. Inside there is everything one can need either to cook or for leisure or rest. Within 20 minutes by car we can reach Tavira and its fabulous beaches. The air we smell is so pure, the country walks are precious and the pool helps to refresh. This stay was very special.
