description Description

An original farmhouse which was carefully renovated between 1998 and 2000. It is located 200 m from the small hamlet of Amaro-Gonçalves, 8 km from the beautiful city of Tavira. Near the beaches and the most important towns of eastern Algarve, this is a perfect location. Some of the most beautiful beaches of Algarve are located in this area, in the Natural Park of Ria Formosa: Praia do Barril 5 km, Praia da Armona (Fuzeta) 4 km, Praia da Terra Estreita (Santa Luzia) 8 km, Praia da Ilha de Tavira 12 km. Guesta staying at any of these two houses benefits from a 50% reduction in the prices of 1 sunshade and 2 sun loungers at the concession “Guenan” on the beach of the Armona Island (Fuzeta). It is 30 km to Faro airport. A rental car is strongly recommended.

During the renovation works particular attention was given to maintaining the architectonic characteristic elements while introducing the comforts of a modern vacation property. As a result of the renovation, the original house was divided into two semidetached houses which can be rented separately or together. Both houses have their own terrace with tables, sun loungers and parasols. From the terraces one reaches a large garden with different fruit trees and herbs. Guests are welcome to pick the fruits they wish during the season. Under an old ancient olive tree there is a barbecue appropriate to grill the fresh fish that can be bought in the nearby fish markets. The grounds have parking place for three vehicles.

The house Casa Nova comprises 2 double rooms (30 m2 / 20 m2), living room with salamander (20 m2), 1 bathroom (10 m2), small kitchen with separate dining area (10 m2), and a large private terrace.

Sleeps 4 persons, self catering.

edit_location Location - Area

A humid zone of international importance, the Ria Formosa estuary is a labyrinth of canals, islands, marshland and sandy beaches that extend 60 km along the Algarve coast between the beaches of Garrão and Manta Rota.

This diversity of eco-systems attracts a varied range of animal life including many bird species. One of the rarest species is the purple swamphen, the symbol of their Natural Park that cannot be found in any other part of the country. Visitors who would like to admire the elegant plumage of this bird and learn everything about the protected area, should start their visit in the Marim Environmental Education Centre, that will indicate the most appropriate pedestrian trails and observatories where it is possible to spy on the day-to-day activities of the various species. The Park also organises various rides in a traditional boat that was formerly used for tuna fishing.

One of the most friendly species that can be found here is the Portuguese water dog. This is a long-haired dog, which helps fishermen in their work, by diving and catching fish caught in the nets.

Other traditional activities of the local population living in the estuary area include extraction of salt and gathering of shellfish and bivalves (mussels, oysters, clams, razor etc). These are then used with great skill and art in order to create delicious gastronomical specialities, such as fish soup or razor fish rice, that can be enjoyed calmly in the seaside restaurants.

All those who love the sun and sea, will encounter genuine paradises in the islands located in the Ria Formosa estuary. From west to east, we find the islands of Faro, Barreta, Culatra, Armona and Tavira, with extensive stretches of sand and relatively deserted. In order to round off the trip, it's well worth visiting Cacela Velha, a white town with a notable historical heritage. From the top of the fortress, there are spectacular views of the surroundings – mingling together the blue tones of the estuary, sea and sky.
