One-Off Feature

A beautiful villa set on a ridge high above the Algarve coast in Portugal, with fabulous sea and mountain views.  Charmingly furnished inside, and with a pretty garden and pool outside, it’s a superb adults only ‘away from it all’ holiday house in Portugal.

General Info

Despite being in a location where on a clear day you can see all the way to the Alentejo, the house is just five minutes from the pretty village of Alte, where you can get a taste of the real Algarve.  Whitewashed houses, cobbled streets, street markets and festivals abound.

The Area Surrounding The Property / Accommodation

The Algarve has a stunning coastline and a wide choice of beaches.  You can take boat trips from the beach where you can visit caves and marine nature reserves.  The old Moorish capital of Silves is 20 mins drive from the villa.  It has the Algarve’s best preserved castle, a Roman bridge across the River Arade and a Gothic cathedral, as well as lots of lovely riverside cafes.  If food is your thing, then there are lots of restaurants to choose from within 15 minutes of Casa Tara where you can try local Portuguese delicacies and wine.  In summer there are lots of great festivals including the Mediterranean music festival in Loule, the Silves Medieval fair in August and a Sand Sculpture festival.

Accommodation Details

Interior Details
The house is bright and comfortable, furnished with warm colours and a stunning marble dining table. Double patio doors lead directly from the lounge to the south facing terrace. It has a big and well equipped kitchen, a living area with TV, and two bedrooms.  The upstairs bedroom has doors which open onto a private terrace, and there is a further room on the ground floor which is cooler in the summer months as it faces north.  The bathrooms are beautifully finished in honeycomb marble and beige stone.  There is a washing machine, dishwasher and wifi throughout.

Exterior Details
There is a very private garden which has what surely must be some of the best views in the Algarve.  The dry garden planting blends with the wild flora, and the garden is visited by many varieties of bird including beautiful colourful African bee-eaters in the summer months.  There are plenty of shady spaces to sit, lie in a hammock, or BBQ the next meal.  Go through a small gate to the ridge, where you sometimes see the neighbours’ goats pass.  Peace personified.

Conditions of Rental
Minimum stay 5 nights.  Please note that this property only accepts adults.  Sorry, no children.
