This cottage is surrounded by fruit trees and flowers. It has a large deck suitable for meals and drinks outside in order to enjoy the splendid climate of Algarve. The beach is one of the finest in Europe - a great expanse of sand with no buildings on it - so rare in this part of the world. It is accessed by a ride of about 2 minutes in a small boat at a nominal cost. The boat leaves from the village of Cabanas which is about a 15 minute walk from the cottage. There is a fine supermarket about a 6 minute walk from the cottage. The lovely city of Tavira is about a ten minute drive. With a car you can take day excursions to all points of the Algarve as well as adjacent Andalusia. Seville is only a 2 hour drive. We have a villa and cottage by the beach of Guincho in Cascais. A 'package' rental can be organized so that travellers can experience the Lisbon-Sintra area as well as Algarve. An attractive and reduced global rate can be organized.
