Anyone who knows Pinheiro confirms it is one of their favourite hidden gems in the Algarve. We had visited this tiny hamlet numerous times, including the amazing fish restaurant and became really excited when our timing for starting a search for another property revealed this Casita was for sale.
So in January 2016 securing this villa seemed so natural to us and our plans soon began to develop. 4 new bathrooms, a new kitchen, new flooring, renewable energy and some sympathetic landscaping and our Casita became refurbished to an extremely high standard.
Casita Privada Pinheiro becomes our second property in the Eastern Algarve and once you have visited you will know why we have chosen to invest in the area. Lazy hot sunny days can be spent by your own pool doing very little or you can take just 10 mins and travel to Barril Beach which is awarded one of the best in the Algarve. Paddle in the Ria Formosa, take trips to secret islands, swim in calm shallow waters then return 'home' and make use of the outside kitchen and bread oven and dine under a star filled sky.
Just a few of the reasons why we love Casita Privada Pinheiro.
As a family of 7 this was our second stay in this wonderful villa. Jonty and Ian are perfect hosts without being intrusive. They also recommended a few local restaurants for us to try! They were there to meet us on arrival and visited throughout our stay to clean the pool and villa. The villa is in a great location to explore Tavira and surrounding areas. There is great space inside and out. We especially enjoyed the outside eating area and BBQ where we saw some beautiful sunsets. The villa is a real home from home with everything that you need. The pool is a great size and is just the right temperature to cool down in.
