Accessibility
There is a large gravel parking area at the villa entrance and a flight of shallow steps leads from the driveway up to the villa and a further flight to the kitchen terrace level. As the property is spread over several floors and levels, it may not be so suitable for people with mobility problems. However, there are 2 ground floor bedrooms and bathrooms. The owners are happy to provide further details if required.
Outside
The villa is situated among many terraces and lovely well kept exotic mediterranean gardens to front and rear. There are plenty of places to sunbathe and relax in the sun or shade & a good supply of sunbeds and chairs. The garden and pool get the sun all day. The area is ideal for walkers, joggers, wild life watchers, country trails and hill walks of varying distances and levels of difficulty. The swimming pool is 8 x 4 meters and around 1m in depth dropping to about 2m in the deep end. The water is treated by a modern efficient non chlorine/salt based system. The pool is terrace level to one side but is unfenced, so is not suitable for unsupervised small children and non-swimmers. Also ,there is a Mediterranean garden immediately below the far side edge of the pool. which children should be instructed to stay clear of. There is a lovely kitchen patio with a large marble table ideal for meals and general entertaining and a larger marble table (for 8) on the front terrace.
Golf
The villa is very conveniently and centrally situated for many of the best golf courses in the Algarve. There is a good 9 hole course (Colina Verde) 15 mins drive away in Moncarrapacho and less than 30 mins away are the beautiful Eastern Algarve courses of Benamor, Castro Marim, Quinta do Vale, Vila Monte, Quinta de Cima, Quinta da Ria and Monte Rei. It is an easy drive to Val do Lobo (Royal and Ocean courses), plus Quinta do Lago and Villamoura - all around 30 mins or less away.
Coast/Beach
15 mins drive to the beautiful long sandy beaches of Tavira, plus the owners' favourite beach, Praia do Barril (also 15 mins drive), with it's small and charming narrow guage railway, making a fun day out for the kids!
Further Details
Meet and Greet by property manager for guests upon arrival at the villa, plus Welcome Pack available upon request at an additional fee. Santa Catarina's local shops include: mini-market (small supermarket) has most provisions, plus good butcher, fresh fruit veg and general groceries, there is also a very good new baker/cafe (nice selection of fresh bread and cakes), newsagent sells English newspapers, bank with an multibanco/ATM, hardware shop, local produce centre (where you can purchase the local olive oil that the village is renowned for). There is also a catholic church, a petrol station and a medical centre (see times of opening which vary). A good sized and very reasonably priced supermarket called Intermarche is situated along the road in Sao Bras (10 mins) and the Gran Plaza, a large shopping complex, can be found in Tavira (15 mins).

Guest Comments
- Beautiful villa and setting. Very secluded with lovely pool and plenty of garden tables, chairs and sunbeds. The villa is luxuriously equipped and we had a wonderful relaxing holiday. Car required, but numerous nearby restaurants.

- This was a holiday organised by our kids as a romantic 10 days for just the two of us It was simply the best holiday we have had in 25 years, no kids no mess and no one to worry about or to entertain We ate out at some of the reasonably priced restaurant's nearby for a couple of nights but actually preferred to cook back at the villa and have the evening to ourselves The villa was superb, beautiful inside and out, and with the addition of the swimming pool it was ideal for us to relax and imagine this is what life should be like The villa was spotless on arrival and easy to keep clean, we had everything we needed including the most important cork screw for the local wines I think it's going to a long time before we top this holiday.

- A very smart, we'll presented property. It is exactly as described in the property details. Nicely located for access to places of interest on the Algarve. Families with children should not be put off by the pool arrangements and gardens unless their children can't swim or are badly behaved and/or don't do as instructed, in which case steer clear. Lovely south facing terraces. The cleanest property we've ever rented in the past 10 years. Local village is quiet but offers the basics - bakery, cafés/bars, small shops etc. We were a party of adults, would we return? Yes.
