“A beautiful calm and quiet place in countryside where one can indulge oneself swimming..sunbathing or exploring..in privacy..a great place to enjoy the freedom of Naturism....Village and good restaurants within reach...Facilities excellent.”
Set high in the hills near Santa Catarina and overlooking the coast the panoramic views are beautiful.
My guest 'annexe' was airy and spacious, with a large lovely contemporary bedroom and sitting room, together with a separate bathroom with shower and small kitchenette.
The owner, who lives in a completely separate part of the extensive villa was very welcoming. It's the perfect place to relax, sit by the lovely pool, or enjoy the many private sun terraces. I found it the ideal spot to stay; while being so peaceful and quiet it is only 15 minutes from Tavira and the beaches.
“A beautiful quiet location with stunning views over unspoiled countryside to the sea, a lovely pool, and private sunbathing areas. The accommodation is well presented with wood-burning stove and everything you could need. A relaxing retreat with a sense of peace to be at one with nature.”
Myself and my Husband arrived at John’s house on October 2019, we arrived at outstanding views in the valley, such a mind blowing views and so peaceful to relax without any disturbance We stayed for four days of total relaxation experience. I thoroughly enjoyed being in the pool and jacuzzi, with my relaxing music on my headphones. Amazing experience. The apartment a five star cleanliness.. A memorable experience, we will making another trip next year to John’s house in Tavira

John and Denise,
Just a thank you for the privilege of staying in your beautiful apartment, full of character, well appointed, everything you need and more, and a most comfortable king-sized bed.
Really quiet and totally relaxing, the scenery is beautiful, in the middle of nowhere, Paul went for a walk each morning and took a different route each time, and on only one occasion saw another person, fantastic. If you cannot relax here then you most certainly have a problem!
The pool is delightful, the hot tub the icing on the cake and the garden just goes on and on with many special features. Thank you also for the welcome pack which is a nice touch.
Santa Catarina is 5 minutes away with quaint little shops that remind you of the 60s in England, you can get everything you need, the bread shop cum cafe has a magnificent array of cakes and was a hive of activity. Further afield you can go to Tavira in 15 minutes and to the outstanding Praia do Barril beach is another 10 minutes, it is a must, almost white sand, stunning.
To cap it all we used the gas barbecue almost every day because we did not want to leave the tranquil environment we were in, need we say more.
We liked it so much (if you will have us again) to book for the same time next year
Marie and Paul
