Algarve Moorish Villa

Algarve,Tavira V6

“Sotavento” ,  Sheltered from the Wind, is what the Portuguese people call this Eastern region of the Algarve close to Spain.

 This is a relatively unknown part of the Algarve off the beaten track.  It is renowned for its wonderful climate, both in winter and in summer, and its simplicity and natural laissez faire

Feel like Robinson Crusoe when walking the sand dunes on the deserted islands just a stone’s throw from the coast between Faro and Tavira. You will find unspoiled beaches of soft sand, deserted even in high holiday season whilst the rest of Europe gets crowded. 

In the middle of this paradise right in the heart of the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve you will find the Moorish Villa, a family property of 7.000m2 next to the sea, with amazing ocean views.

Old wooden patio doors open onto a magical scene of greens and blues with a breathtaking view of the island of Armona on the horizon.

Enjoy sunny terraces and lush gardens. Take a swim in the crystal clear saline waters of the oversized pool and have a game of Boccia/Petanque on the purpose built sand pit.

Barbeque with family and friends at the lavishly equipped outdoor kitchen nestled between young olive groves or simply retreat for a quiet moment in one of the many beautifully designed sitting areas dotted around the property.

Walk through the gardens, pick a fig or a pomegranate and find your personal spot to relax. 

Enjoy a very personalized style; exquisite whilst at the same time comfortable and relaxed.  You will feel instantly at home here.  6 en-suite bedrooms welcome you to stay and experience a quality holiday in privacy.  


The enclosed Moorish style patio is the entrée of the house and is a cozy come-together outside area with an enchanting olive tree in the middle. Gather all together for a sundowner or retreat with your favorite book.


The Library is a private semi-open area divided by arches and has a cozy wood fire where you can read, watch sat-tv and surf on the WIFI internet. The library opens up to the enclosed patio on one side and to the garden terrace on the other side.

Outdoor Kitchen

The incorporated bar on the island divides the kitchen area from the dining area and invites family and friends to take a glass of wine or have a snack while socializing with the cook(s)!
