Reviews of THE SUMMER HOUSE

Star Rating 1Star Rating 2Star Rating 3Star Rating 4Star Rating 5  Tranquil and Relaxing holiday

Second visit to The Summer House in the last 12 months! We explored further afield this time.
We had a great time at the villa, with plenty of hot sunshine, privacy and tranquility. The pool was great to cool off, and the shade at the villa was ideal, and one of the main reasons we returned.
Tavira Island beach was probably my favourite. Last year I wrote that after visiting the Eastern Algarve I had no desire to return to Spain, and I stand firm by my view. Come to to the Eastern Algarve - it's much better than Spain!
Thank you for your hospitality & for accommodating us in your wonderful villa. We had a great holiday and hope to return again.
To all future guests, you will love The Summer House!

We enjoyed our week at the Summer House very much.
It is a lovely place to recharge the batteries! We definitely recommend the fish & veg market in Tavira. Fresh figs were simply delicious!

Second visit and a wonderful holiday, as before, at this beautiful villa. And we will definitely be returning. A pretty, very clean, comfortable and well appointed villa. We had the most idyllic, relaxing two weeks. Life slowed down to an unrecognizable pace compared with the usual stress of London.
If you are lucky enough to stay here at The Summer House, here are our recommendations:
Fabrica beach – beautiful and peaceful. Costa’s restaurant on Fabrica beach has good food and service, and wonderful views.
Barril beach was the overall favourite.
We like 'Luis dos Frangos' restaurant (great piripiri chicken), & 'Bica', and also good fish restaurants by the harbour – all excellent.
We love this villa with it's sparkling pool and restful ambience.

The Summer House is just fantastic! We've been there for a romantic getaway and it was just great! The house was spotless clean and decorated in such a pretty way! We made the most of it and, when we felt the weather was too hot to stay on the beach for too long, we enjoyed relaxing in the pool or in the shade of the patio.. We loved to have our breakfast in the patio in such a peaceful and colourful garden ... and our lunches with fresh local food bought in Tavira...

and of course we didn't forget to use the BBQ as well!

We have also tried some restaurants in Tavira, which had great local fish dishes, and piri piri chicken and chips from Luis Dos Frangos in Sao Bras De Alportel, great food for very cheap price.

We went to the beautiful Tavira Island ( Ilha de Tavira) taking the boat from Quatro Aguas, and we enjoyed the beach of Manta Rota as well, very close to drive to from the Summer House.

We felt the Summer House was just the perfect place to relax in the picturesque landscape of Algarve and we will definitely go back! :)

We were very happy at the pretty Summer House! It is a lovely villa, very well equipped and with lots of attention to detail. Comfortable beds, very clean, everything was perfect. The pool and patio area is well maintained.

Great beaches in the area, lots of pretty countryside. Our only wish is that we could have stayed longer!

I would highly recommend this property.

Fantastic villa, comfortable, very peaceful, stylish – & spotlessly clean!

The Summer House exceeded our expectations! Very comfortable and private & nicely furnished. It’s a beautiful and quiet haven. Just right to recharge batteries. The house and the garden are so well kept – we would recommend it to anyone!

We loved it! The Summer House is a really lovely place from which to explore the Algarve - great for connecting into good roads and interesting places.
The weather was glorious, really warm, and the pool is a boon. We had a glorious 1st week, and spent some lovely hours reading on the wonderful wide soft sandy beaches (Barril and Tavira Island), and wandering around Tavira – which is a really lovely little cobbled town. We also went up into the nearby mountains where we walked for miles, and the views are amazing!
In the 2nd & 3rd week we explored further afield. Seville (Spain) was a good day trip too. Good places to eat: Local village taverna for huge portions, well-priced and only a short walk; and Bica in Tavira for authentic tasty Portuguese food.

We’re so glad we found this beautiful villa!
We found the owners helpful and friendly, and communication with them was fast and reliable.

What a beautiful villa - it has everything you could need, and a wonderful garden and pool to relax in. We had a really fabulous holiday staying at the Summer House.

Driving around the rural roads is a great way to see true Algarve life - gorgeous river views, and loads of amazing crops. Of the beaches, Barril beach was our favourite over Tavira Island, but both are fantastic beaches. Tavira town made for a really nice wander-about. On our way back we stopped at 'Luis do Prego' restaurant (near the villa) and had the best meal!

Our stay at The Summer House was lovely and relaxing - just what we needed! Hope to come back! We have already been recommending the villa to friends and family!

Lovely relaxing week at The Summer House. The boys (4yrs old) loved the pool and were in it countless times. The house is well equipped, was lovely to sit out and eat in the garden every day. Was a nice and quiet area not too far from tavira and things to do. Would recommend the house and the area.

Great recommendations in the Guestbook - however we would say that Barril Beach is the best - love the train the little restaurant area is lovely close to the beach.

Trip to Ilha de Tavira beach on ferry is good but be sure to go early, as the queues in August are long thereafter.
Aquasul lovely restaurant we were lucky to be in town when there was live flamenco - amazing!
