The Villa - Casa Al-Baraka

Casa Al-Baraka is a 3 bedroom villa with a pool and has all the amenities required for a comfortable stay, it is situation up in the hills 10 minutes drive north of Tavira. The villa has stunning views across the hills and valleys of the area and is a wonderful quiet retreat for relaxation. In the temperate months of the year the surrounding hills make it ideal for walking. A restaurant is only 5 minutes walk, make our order in the morning and its all ready for you in the evening! Really good country food. A cash and carry that stocks most things and has an oven for baking fresh local bread is 5 minutes from the house. Although the villa is in the quiet location of Vale do Junco, the beautiful town of Tavira is only a 10 minutes drive away.

This spacious villa has a large open plan lounge that is bright and...

We have just enjoyed a super week at the lovely Casa Al-baraka. A beautiful, spacious, well equipped villa in a super location. We travelled as a family of six, two children under 10 years, two parents and two grandparents. It suited us all perfectly. The owner was friendly and incredibly helpful as was the lady who cared for the villa....

Spent 3 days in this well appointed villa 6km north of Tavira up in the hills. I'd recommend it despite the villa feeling like it needed a bit of TLC and the hardest beds we've ever encountered anywhere. Rented the villa despite the lack of WiFi expecting to be able to use my iPad as a hot spot. Unfortunately, the...

About the neighbourhood

Tavira is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful towns in the Algarve. A Roman bridge links the two parts of the town. The old part of the town has numerous buildings that retain the Moors influence on architecture. There are numerous restaurants and bars in Tavira which is getting increasingly more sophisticated then when I first got there ten years ago. This does not mean it has lost its small town charm, but just that there is more on offer for visitors these days. You can still visit many small restaurants that offer good food at reasonable prices. The speciality of the region is of course grilled sardines and other fish, brought fresh to your table for selection, other dishes are Cataplana and Steak on Stone.

Catch a ferry to the Ilha do Tavira for a day out to this be...
