Lovely well equipped villa. Gated swimming pool was very helpful as we had a toddler with our party. Easy access (with car) to shops, beaches and the town of Tavira with multiple restaurants. Hosts were available, very helpful and welcoming. Really appreciated the home made jams and cakes. Would highly recommend.

What a fab place to stay a real home from home. The villa is situated in a quiet rural area. but not far from local beaches, shops, supermarkets, Olhao - with it's very colourful fish and produce markets, and Tavira too. Local seafood restaurant Os Fialhos - not to be missed, a 5 minute drive or an easy 30 minute stroll away from the villa, good idea to book in advance ! The villa is very spacious, inside and out, and beautifully furnished. it is very well maintained by the very friendly owners. Upon arrival we received home-made preserves and banana muffins, which were delicious and a nice personal touch. The villa was very comfortable and well equipped and exceptionally clean. We received a full clean and linen change after the first week and the owners regularly cleaned and inspected the pool. We spent a lot of time relaxing by the pool and eating outdoors. We enjoyed shopping at the local market, buying fish to cook on the BBQ too. Local wine was most enjoyable and reasonably priced too. Would certainly book this villa again.

Staying in this villa is a must………the owners are so friendly and couldn’t do enough to make our stay feel very special, including complimentary homemade jams and cakes, which were delicious! We spent our time lazing around the pool, cooking on the BBQ and visiting local beaches, a visit to the local restaurant is an absolute must. The inside of the villa is finished to an exceptional quality, it is obvious that the owners take great pride in ensuring their clients enjoy their holiday in the Algarve. We will be booking again for next year……we can’t wait!

After a long 2 years, we were looking forward to feeling the sun on our bones on a much anticipated family holiday with 5 adults and 3 children (10, 3 & 2 years) and Casita Privada did not disappoint. It is a beautiful bungalow, tastefully decorated both inside and out which provided everything and more to ensure that our stay there was a roaring success. We spent most of our time outside, either eating at the massive terrace table or lounging round the pool which is completely fenced off - an absolute godsend with 2 toddlers on the go! The garden itself is gated and secure which allowed the children a safe place to play when out of the pool. Jonty and Ian were consummate hosts. We arrived to welcome staples in the fridge including home made jam and cherry muffins, in fact we had home made muffins delivered every week and Jonty went to the bother of finding an egg free recipe as one of our party had an egg allergy. We also had a weekly delivery of fresh figs from their garden at home - just gorgeous! We were there for 3 weeks and prior to our arrival, had asked Jonty to source an outside caterer who could come once a week. Despite his best efforts, he was unable to find anyone and so did it himself, ably assisted by the lovely Andrew. The food was phenomenal … 3 very diverse & delicious menus beautifully presented and served with just the right amount of friendly professionalism. Pinheiro is a great location with the beautiful Barril Beach just along the way and Tavira & Olhao 10 minutes either way. Luz de Tavira is about 5 minutes away and has a train station where we caught the train to Faro for the day and Fuseta was also lovely with a variety of boat trip options and a great selection of restaurants. All in all it is a great property in a great location with great hosts … don’t look any further!

From our first correspondence Jonty was so helpful and friendly. We were a family of 2 generations and there was space and and equipment for everyone. Ian met us and gave us a thorough introduction. The villa was everything we had hoped for - clean , well equipped and spacious and the welcome items home made cakes and jam were a lovely touch and certainly enjoyed by all. My daughter has already booked to come again next year! Thank you Jonty and Ian for a great holiday

We absolutely loved staying in this villa. It was wonderfully comfortable, clean and superbly well equipped. A great outside area with a fabulous barbecue, lovely seating/dining area and a wonderful pool and garden. Jonty and Ian could not have been more helpful, friendly and communicative. When our plane was delayed we were able to ask for some shopping to be done so we had food on our late arrival, which was also not a problem. The surrounding are is great with plenty of restaurants and activities, great beach life and interesting towns to visit. I would not hesitate to recommend it

Fabulous villa! This is a fantastic villa, really loved it cannot recommend it enough. Our first visit to this villa but we have stayed in the other Privada villa before so we knew it was going to be great!! The villa is situated in its own private grounds overlooking the Algarve countryside, more Portuguese than the more commercialised areas of the Algarve. A peaceful location and lovely to walk around to the local restaurant or just walk around the Rio Formosa. It is the perfect location for visiting the town of Tavira, Olhao, Spain if you want and lots of local markets. We even went into Albufeira to take the boys go karting which isn’t far to drive at all. Very close to the beautiful Ilha de Fuzeta beach and many more too. The villa is very well set out and perfectly furnished. The pool area, outside seating and BBQ are great! Again a superior villa and one of the best and well-kept villas we’ve stayed in and we’ve been coming to the Algarve for many years now. Thank you to Jonty and Ian for making our stay most enjoyable especially with those gorgeous homemade muffins and jams… thanks so much for all the tips on the local restaurants and best places to eat and drink too. We will be back, looking forward to seeing you guys again!!
