The Experience

Plunge into an emerald pool. Fringed by century-old trees, it’s an old stone water tank that’s been extended, and is as enticing as the landscape that surrounds it. Off an unassuming road that runs from Tavira, in a garden full of fig, olive and orange trees, all you hear are the birds.

Authentically decorated in Portuguese-Moroccan style, spacious yet intimate, the 200-year-old quinta is irresistible. Chop, chat and stir in the kitchen; sink into cushioned sofas on the terrace; cosy up to the fireplace if the weather is bad. All is simple yet exotic.

In ten minutes you are in Moorish Tavira, ordering dinner at one of the restaurants that line the Praça da República. Seaside Cabanas is another fine old town – a gateway to the nature-rich Ria Formosa.

This is a very special place as the traditional farm house was originally converted into a family home and the essence remains. A wonderful home to be at, with original interiors, comfortable bedrooms and a very inviting swimming pool. I loved the serenity and the warmness I felt as i visited the Quinta. It would make a super place for a family or group of friends to enjoy a quiet and relaxing time in this lovely part of the Algarve

The neighbourhood

From the rolling hills to the salt marshes of the Ria Formosa, this is an attractive and newly discovered area. Some say Tavira (7km) is the prettiest town in the Algarve. In little Santa Luzia, 8km, you can find fresh seafood and catch regular ferries to gorgeous, often deserted Atlantic beaches. For shopping and nightlife there are the old fishing towns of Olhao (26km) and Fuseta (14km). The Spanish border is 30 minutes away; check out the river port of Ayamonte.

Principally a landscape designer, he is also a therapist and runs an internationally renowned programme for anorexic sufferers financed by the Dutch government. Part of the treatment is working on his permaculture garden. Not only is Fred talented and charismatic, he is totally unassuming. He lives in Tavira and welcomes you to this house.
