located in a national park with marvelous views.Rather further from Tavira than the description indicated.Very remote so a car essential.Liked the inside and outside apart from the room with the open fire place which was very dark and the smoke from the log fire blew back in to the room several times. Would not recommend if cold nights are expected...

Travelled here mid August with my wife and five year old twins, having read some good reviews from 2015. I initially booked for early August but the owner double booked ourselves, fortunately we were able to change our flights and leave dates, the owner took the price of the flight changes from the cost from the holiday rental.

My family (myself, my husband, our two adult daughters and our 10 year old granddaughter) spent a lovely relaxing week at the Windmill of the Sun recently (October 2015). This was our fourth holiday to the Eastern Algarve, an area we love as it is so unspoiled. We all loved the quietness and quirkiness, enjoying both the sunrises and sunsets...

About the neighbourhood
This beautiful town of Tavira mixes both old and new elements of the Algarve. Tavira is a charming small town with the river Gilâo running through the centre under a very historic Roman bridge. Not to be missed: the castle ruins and exquisite churches. Relax at one of the many riverside restaurants and pavement cafes that offer all types of cuisine. The meandering streets lead to a riverside park and square where there is often public entertainment on summer evenings, at other times, piped classical music is to be heard around the town.

Take the boat across to the pretty Isle of Tavira where you can sunbathe or swim in the pleasant waters of the Atlantic.

The villa is a perfect location for golf in Portugal - and in Spain.
