Set in a quiet location, amidst acres of orange groves near the Gilao River and Natural waterfalls at Monihos da Rocha. The villa is situated 3 km north from the centre of Tavira, one of the Algarve's loveliest towns, which although popular, has retained its ancient architecture and tree shaded squares. The villa is ideal for a family or golfing group seeking a relaxing holiday. From a tranquil base, there is much to enjoy. Cultural strolls around Tavira, or ferry boat trips to fantastic beaches on offshore islands. Leisurely drives through the countryside or jaunt across the border to savour the Splendour in Seville.
The villa has marbles tiles throughout the ground floor. The lounge/diner is comfortably furnished with a sofa, 2 armchairs, dining table and chairs, an open fireplace, Satellite TV and DVD Player and has access onto the patio. There is a super private swimming pool to refresh sun-scorched bodies, and to the side of the patio there is a built-in barbecue ideal for those group evening meals with grilled sardines washed down with local wine. There are two ground floor bedrooms, a twin plus a double. These share a bathroom. Upstairs, there are two twin bedrooms and a shower room with toilet and wash basin. All bedrooms have built-in wardrobes. The Kitchen is equipped with a gas oven with 4 rings, fridge-freezer, microwave and washing machine.
Tranquillity, relaxation, unspoilt countryside, an enchanting town and sensational beaches are all to be found in and around the villa.
2.3.1 Swimming Pool
Q. Does the villa have a private swimming pool?
A. Yes. The villa has a large exclusive private swimming pool.
Q. How big is the swimming pool?
A. The swimming pool is 10 metres by 5 metres. The shallow end is 1 metre 20cm in depth and the deep end is 2 metres in depth. Most new builds and most of the villas in the Algarve have swimming pools that are a lot smaller than ours.
Q. What is the privacy like at the villa?
A. Please take a look at the picture included with instruction 9 in section 2.5.1. Our villa is situated at the end of the road. There are six other villas on the same road, 1 of which can just about overlook the pool from its upstairs back bedroom when the boundary plants and trees are cut back and shortened.
This villa is situated to the left hand side of the wall and plants in the picture in section 2.2.3 and the visibility is limited. You can just about see this villa in the corner of the picture in section 2.2.4. When the boundary trees are at full flight and the flowers are fully booming then the next door neighbour is unable to overlook the pool.
Overall, the villa is well positioned and the privacy is very good.
Q. Do you provide any baby equipment?
A. Unfortunately, we do not provide any baby cots or baby equipment at the villa. You will need to take a travel cot with you.
Q. Do you provide towels at the villa?
A. Bathroom towels are provided but not beach towels.
Q. Does the villa have fans and air conditioning?
A. There are ceiling fans in the living room and downstairs bedrooms and osculating fans in the upstairs bedrooms which are sufficient for keeping you cool. There is no air conditioning in the villa.
Q. Do you arrange transfers from the airport?
A. We do not arrange transfers from the airport. There are tens and tens of taxis available from the taxi rank outside Faro airport, so arranging a taxi before arrival is not necessary. It takes about 25 minutes to get from the airport to the villa. Please refer to section 2.4 for directions on how to get to Vila Alecrim from the airport. Taxis from the airport to the villa cost between 40 to 50 Euros.
On your return to Faro airport I suggest using one for the following taxis (remember to put 00351 in front of number if using a British mobile from the villa):
o Orlandino: 917 882 752
o Vitor Guerreiro: 917 330 513 (Fax: 281 324 461, Email: firstname.lastname@example.org for reservations)
Q. I would like to take my girlfriend / boyfriend away for a well earned break. Would the villa be suitable for us?
A. I couldn’t think of a better place to take your girlfriend / boyfriend :) Read any tour guide. They all say the same thing. Tavira is the most beautiful town in the Algarve. You’ll have plenty of privacy at the villa and if you are looking for a romantic setting then Tavira is an ideal choice.
Situated 30km east of Faro, Tavira is the most attractive town in the Algarve and, with a wide range of attractions and restaurants, makes the best base in the east. Its local beach is on the Ilha de Tavira, one of the most beautiful and extensive of the sandpit beaches that can be reached by ferry, or by toy train from the neighbouring holiday village of Pedras d'el Rei. Set on both sides of the gently flowing Rio Gilao, Tavira is a graceful little town of fine white mansions with hipped terracotta roofs and wrought-iron balconies, topped by a neat little castle and a historic Roman bridge.
Arriving and Departing (Checking In and Checking Out)
Q. What is the earliest time I can arrive (check in) at the villa?
Q. What is the latest time I can depart (check out) at the villa?
Q. My plane arrives early or my plane departs late. Can arrangements be made to leave my luggage somewhere?
A. Guests must arrive after 4.00 pm and depart before 11.00 am. This time gap is needed for the maid to clean and prepare the villa for the following guests. If your plane departs in the evening or you arrive in the early morning / early afternoon then arrangements can be made for you to leave your luggage at the villa or leave your luggage with the villa manager (the manager lives in the villa next to our villa).
Q. What is the latest time I can check in?
A. You can check in at any time. Just let us know your travel arrangements beforehand.
Q. Who manages Vila Alecrim?
A. Richard Friend, an English expat who lives in the adjacent villa, is the Manager of Vila Alecrim. He will provide you with the keys of the villa on arrival. If you should encounter any problems during your stay at the villa, please inform Richard.
A. Do I need to worry about Mosquitoes?
Q. Mosquito nets are provided on windows, but I advise you to take your own mosquito repellent and plugs, especially in peak season. Try to use a mosquito repellent that has 90% to 100% deet content.
Q. I would like to stay in the Tavira area for a longer period than the availability that you can offer. Can you recommend anywhere else that I can stay?
A. For other accommodation in Tavira take a look at http://www.portugal-info.net/algarve/tavira.htm. The apartments / hotels listed on this website are however located in more developed areas.
There is a lady who lives in a villa located near ours. She rents the upper section of her villa as an apartment. Suitability will depend on how many of you will be going. More information about this apartment can be found at http://www.casadosamigos.com
There is also a number of hotels / inns in and around Tavira (http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=Inns+Tavira). I haven't stayed in any of them so I can't really give any useful feedback.
Most of the accommodation listed above will probably not be able to give you the same kind of value and personal service as we can though :)
Notes for Guests
§ Starter pack (such as water, milk, butter etc) will be provided for guests who have booked to stay in the villa for more than 6 nights.
§ The sun umbrellas break easily whilst open. Please ensure that the Sun umbrellas are closed during the night.
§ Rubbish to be taken to large bin at end of drive. Leave all food covered to avoid any ants.
§ I suggest you buy bottled water from the supermarket.
§ Please do not use the kitchen fridge for storing drinking bottles, cans and cartons. Please put all drinks (water, soft drinks, beer, wine etc) into the fridge in the pantry.
§ To turn on barbeque light please turn on outside light (the switch is by outside door in the kitchen) and place plug into socket by barbeque.
§ For information about events during your stay visit the Tourist Information Centre as shown on map of Tavira provided in section 3.5.
