Villa to Rent in Tavira, Eastern Algarve, Portugal

Are you looking for luxury villa holidays in the Algarve? Then look no further. Our self-catering villa, Casa Na Colina, is perched on top of a hill overlooking the beautiful and historic town of Tavira in the Eastern Algarve. One of the loveliest Algarve resorts in the south-east corner of Portugal, it is a mere 30-minute drive from Faro airport and only 20 minutes from the Spanish border. Our Tavira holiday rental is a real home from home in a brilliant location.

It is a spacious, fully-equipped, modern, 3-bedroomed, 3-bathroomed villa with large sun terrace and a superb communal swimming pool on a small, exclusive development. It has double glazing throughout and air conditioning/heating in all bedrooms and the lounge/dining room.

The large terrace has a built-in gas barbecue and seats 6 comfortably for outdoor dining. There are also sun loungers and recliners.

Please note: smoking is strictly not allowed in the house or on the terrace.

Sorry, no pets are allowed. Children over 5 are welcome. The house is not ideal for wheelchair users (although not impossible) as there are steps and the paths are not very easy to negotiate in a wheelchair.


We are always improving and upgrading the facilities in our home. In 2007 we put in a PC with broadband and 2 bikes, and in 2008 we installed a better dishwasher and upgraded the washing machine to a washer/dryer. We have also fitted mosquito screens to all patio doors and windows. We actually get very few mosquitoes up on Alto do Perogil, but you can now sleep with the windows open safe in the knowledge that you won't be bothered by any unwelcome visitors. We put ceiling fans in the two main bedrooms in 2009, and they've made a huge difference. I don't like sleeping with air conditioning on, so these are perfect for keeping the bedroom cool through the summer nights. We've also recently replaced the barbecue (which was looking rather tired) and bought an extra heater, which keeps the place toasty if you want to come in the winter.

As of 2012 the broadband is wireless, so you can now sit on the terrace and surf the net on your iPad, laptop, or smartphone. There's also a printer, so it's easy to print off boarding passes for your return flight, for example. We replaced the TV in the summer of 2014 and have now replaced satellite TV with the far superior iPTV, a service that gives you a phenomenal range of all your favourite channels, including films and sport.

Weather in the Algarve

With over 300 days of sunshine a year it's no surprise that southern Portugal is a favourite holiday spot. Summers are hot and dry (and reliable!), with temperatures not usually getting higher than the mid-thirties. June and September are also lovely months, with temperatures a little lower but still perfect beach weather. Although November and April can be wet, the climate is still pleasant through the winter months and we've spent many a day in December and January in t-shirts. The Algarve really is a year-round destination, and is perfect for golf, walking, horse-riding, and bird-watching at any time - though you may find it a bit too hot in the height of summer.

Cheap Car Hire in the Algarve

Although it is possible to get about without a car, you will undoubtedly benefit from the freedom of having your own transport. There's a huge choice of car hire companies, but we have been using a local company for the past 10 years and have found them to be cheap and reliable. As part of the service we offer our guests, we are happy to get quotes and book your hire car for you.

Happy Guests

We do our best to make your holiday as special as possible. Casa Na Colina is not just a rental property, but is also our holiday home, so it is furnished and equipped to feel like home from home. When you arrive a welcome pack will be waiting for you, containing enough basics for a simple meal, so you don't have to go shopping when you're tired from the travelling and all you want to do is collapse on the terrace in the sun. Typically this will contain things like bread, butter, milk, ham, cheese, fruit, salad, and a couple of bottles of wine. If your arrival is an evening one then we can do a breakfast welcome pack instead, if you prefer. If you're vegetarian, coeliac, or have any other dietary requirements, just let us know and we'll tailor the welcome pack accordingly. Shortly after you arrive (and at your convenience), we will organise a 'meet and greet' to make sure you have everything you need and to answer any questions, explain how to get to the supermarkets, etc.

We also do take note of your suggestions for improvements and on almost every trip we have something extra for the house in our suitcase.

Some of our lovely guests have kindly allowed us to add their emails and visitors' book comments to the testimonials page, so you don't just have to take our word for how good it is!
