About the property

An idyllic family house with all comforts for a peaceful holiday by the sea

This accommodation has a private 250 m² terraced garden with an inviting seating area with fresh herbs under the shade of a lemon and fig tree. Surrounded by almond groves and orchards, this property has spectacular views over the lagoon and reaching far out to the countryside. A large roof terrace with a shaded seating area and sun beds offers even more privacy for dining al fresco and sunbathing. A traditional BBQ and bread oven may inspire some Mediterranean cuisine.

An artistically renovated interior offers all comforts and modern facilities for a perfect family holiday, with a double bedroom and twin bedroom, dining and living room, large kitchen and bathroom. There is heating provided by a large wood burning stove in the living room and air conditioning in the kitchen plus wafer radiators in the bedrooms. Casita da Ria has wireless internet.

Four quality sun loungers deck the roof terrace and there are sun umbrellas, two tables and chairs available.

There are shops and cafés, good restaurants and other amenities 3.5km away in the fishing village of Santa Luzia. Approximately 15 minutes walk from the house is a touristic village Pedras d’el Rei which has a shop, cafés and a restaurant, playground and gardens. Luz de Tavira is about the same distance and has more amenities.

Stunning Algrvean beaches are a beautiful 15 minutes walk away, there is a footbridge crossing the river and leading to Barril beach, which can be reached wither by foot or by miniature train, all year round. Terra Estreita is reached by boat from Santa Luzia during the summer season.

A car is not at all essential, though recommended during the height of summer…and for reaching all the beautiful and interesting places further afield. Car rental, taxi transfers and bicycle hire can be organized with local reputable firms in advance or by calling the local representative.

Reached via country lanes pertaining to the EcoVia pedestrian and cycle path circuit. A 5 min drive from villages and main roads.

This location is quiet and peaceful yet not too remote, there are a handful of residents in the neighbourhood.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Wir hatten einen wunderbaren Aufenthalt im Casita da Ria. Das Häuschen hat uns sehr gut gefallen und auch die Umgebung war tiptop. Es gibt fast nichts zu verbessern. Ich käme gerne wieder :)

Schönes Ferienhäuschen in ruhiger Lage

  • 4 of 5

Wir hatten einen wunderschönen Urlaub im Casita da Ria. Im Haus fehlt es an nichts. Der kleine Innenhof und die tolle Dachterasse laden zum Entspannen ein. Unterm Zitronen- und Feigenbaum findet sich immer Schatten. Es ist sehr ruhig und abgelegen. Uns Stadtmenschen hat das gut getan.

Das Haus ist in die Jahre gekommen, feucht und nicht sehr gepflegt.

  • 2 of 5

Die Plastik Liegestühle waren defekt und total marode. Im Innen-und Aussenbereich überall Spinnenweben. Fussweg zum Strand war nicht attraktiv und 30 Minuten lang.

Das Häuschen ist sehr liebevoll und geschmackvoll eingerichtet, es fehlt an nichts, mit zwei Schlafzimmer, einem Wohn- und Esszimmer und einem weiteren Esstisch in der Küche ist auch genug Platz für eine Familie, die Betten sind bequem, der Frühstücksplatz im kleinen Hof unter dem Zitronenbaum ist wunderbar, ebenso der Blick von der Dachterrasse.

A delightful two bedroom countryside house in a peaceful and idyllic location just 100 m from a tidal river and within walking distance to beaches within the Ria Formosa nature reserve. An excellent spot for nature lovers, walkers, bird watchers and beachcombers.

Beautiful white sand beaches accessed on foot, by boat and by miniature train, wonderful country lanes for walking and cycling, just minutes drive from fishing villages and historic towns.

Golf: There are excellent golf courses within 10 to 15 min drive from the accommodation. The closest are Benamor, Quinta da Ria and Quinta da Cima, Monte Rei.
