Villa Vermelha da Catarina by Portucasa
Tavira - Villa
From the enormous roof terrace you have a fantastic view over the village and the surrounding hills. The enclosed inner garden is nice and quiet and has a beautiful large swimming pool, barbecue area, several cosy terraces and many plants. It provides an oasis of peace and privacy that you and your party desire. Villa Vermelha da Catarina offers you all the luxury (good, extra long beds!) and cosiness that you could wish for a holiday with friends or family, you don't have to leave the house, as it were. And if you do walk out the door, to buy fresh bread for example, you are in the calm Algarvian village life, surrounded by the hills of the Algarvian hinterland. Finally, within 15 minutes driving you are at the sea. Really a very nice way of holidaying, because there is something for everyone!

There is a supermarket, a pharmacy, you can use your bankcard and there are a few restaurants around the village. Right behind the villa start the rolling hills for a walk or for example a sporty mountain bike or cycling tour. Everywhere in the area you see the fields with ancient olive trees, interspersed with orange groves and cork oaks that still serve for production.
