Set on the edge of a typical eastern Algarve village, this spectacular large modern villa is equipped and furnished to the highest standards throughout. All rooms are very spacious and the house easily accommodates 12 people. The impressive large and spacious lounge overlooks the south facing garden and open countryside, offering dramatic views of both sea & mountains from the garden and also from the very large roof terrace. There are large open spaces outside, including BBQ area, outside shower, very large patio with terrace furniture, large table and chairs for al fresco dining and sun loungers to ensure your stay has every comfort. The garden, with its established almond trees, terraces and 8m fresh water pool with pool fence provides your personal oasis, as long as you can resist the fantastic nearby family-friendly beaches of which some of the finest include Monte Gordo, Praia Verde, Altura, Manta Rota, Cacela Velha, Fabrica, Cabanas and Tavira - all just a few mins drive from the villa! The ancient town & regional centre of Tavira is approx 10 mins away. You can also drive to Spain in 20 minutes or why not take the passenger ferry boat from Vila Real de Santo Antonio to the Spanish town of Ayamonte!

Local Golf: The Eastern Algarve is famous for its excellent golf facilities - there are six 18-hole courses all very close to Santa Rita: Quinta da Ria -18 holes, Par 72, 6,016m designed by Rocky Roquemore and Quinta de Cima - 18 holes, Par 72, 6,256m the new sister course next to Quinta da Ria - both courses are just 2 Km from the house! Benamor Golf - 18 holes, Par 71, 5,500m designed by Sir Henry Cotton - situated near Conceiçao just off the EN125 & only 5 Km from the house. Colina Verde - 9 holes, Par 28, 1,145m is situated between Olhão & Tavira. Castro Marim Golf - 18 holes, Par 71, 5,265m designed by Terry Murray is situated near the historic town of Castro Marim. There is also the first Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course at Monte Rei (ranked Top 20 in Europe & Top 100 in the world by Golf Digest USA - the only Portuguese course to achieve this ranking) and is just 3 Km north from the house!

Shopping, food & other activities: Both Vila Real de Santo Antonio & Tavira (with its new large Shopping Mall) are real-life small towns with shops for everyday items - some excellent bargains are to be had in household linens - towels, bed linen and table linen. Along the EN125 coast road & inland, fantastic local pottery is available. The beach resorts of Monte Gordo, Altura, Manta Rota & Cabanas provide great holiday shopping with gifts, clothes, shoes & beach equipment. There are many other activities open to the more adventurous - from walking, riding, cycling, sailing and surfing - all within easy access from Santa Rita. There are excellent restaurants within easy reach of the house, including Cacela Velha & Fabrica just 2 Km away & beachside restaurants at Manta Rota (try Sem Espinhas). Excellent restaurants abound in the Eastern Algarve, both in the towns and nearby villages and along the coast road. Choose from the local 'black' pork, cataplana (seafood stew) or fresh fish and you won't be disappointed.

Beaches: The villa is located only a few Km from the wide-open Blue Flag beach of Manta Rota, with lots of parking space and a pedestrian access way leading straight down to the beach. If you feel really adventurous just keep on walking - the beaches stretch for miles! The whole beach area is very much orientated towards families and is a very safe, clean environment with ample open space, even in peak times, for sunbathing, swimming and playing with the kids! This area is truly one of the most outstanding areas of natural beauty - you will not be disappointed! Also try the beautiful beach at Praia Verde ('green beach') and you will see why it is so special - set in a nature reserve with pine forest leading down to the protected sand dunes and fantastic wide-open beaches. The beaches at Cacela Velha, Fabrica (both just 2 Km away) & Cabanas are also worth visiting - taking the short taxi boat ride across the Ria Formosa to get to the stunning beaches is a real treat!


Thoroughly enjoyable holiday

By Hilary M on 03-Oct-2018

Our impressions -
On site hosts were very friendly and helpful.
Great communication with home owner too.
Santa Rita is a lovely rural location with easy access to beautiful beeches, local villages and towns and large food shops.
The house has a picturesque outlook with a great outdoor swimming pool and shower, a large terrace with barbeque area and plenty of loungers and dining space for ten.
Bedrooms are spacious and some have large balconies.
Kitchen is very well equipped for a lot more than ten guests.
A perfect house for a large family get together, several families or a group of couples
We hired road bikes to cycle in the mountains which was fabulous and mountain bikes for local cycling.
An unspoilt quiet area of Portugal away from crowds with low rise buildings.
A thoroughly enjoyable holiday which we would repeat!

Perfect for children

By Kirsty B on 24-Sep-2018

We had a lovely stay at your villa - thank you. It was absolutely perfect for us with young children - a fence around the pool and no steps outside! We loved exploring the area and will definitey be back in the future. Paul & Pam (owner representatives) were very helpful when we arrived giving us plenty of information.

A beautiful villa

By Kath T on 05-Sep-2018

We had a fabulous time in this lovely villa. The booking process was easy, the owners friendly. We were welcomed by Pam and Paul at the villa who were on hand if needed. As previous reviewers have mentioned this villa is very well equipped and very comfortably housed the nine of us for two weeks. The garden and pool were lovely and we had a lot of fun. We enjoyed our walks down to Fabrica for coffee and cake. Some days,depending on the tide, we would either walk through shallow water to the beach on the other side or catch the little boat over. Pam and Paul recommended a local taxi service and they were brilliant, so much so that we never did book a hire car as we thought we might have done. Let's face it, with such a beautiful villa, pool and garden there were many days when we just stayed at 'home' or walked around the local area.

Toppenboende för stora familjer

By Richard S on 18-Jul-2018

Tuppar som gal, hundar som skäller och kacklande hönor. Rena landet men bara en liten bit från turistområdena. Toppen med "egna" badrum till sovrummen. Perfekt för barnen med staket runt poolen och stor gräsyta att springa runt på.

We had a great week at Vila Nova De Cacela. The surroundings were still and nice. I found some beautiful roads to go for my morning running. The villa was very well equiped and we didnt miss a thing!. The pool, the patio and the garden was lovely. The contact with the owners worked very well. We strongly recommend this villa and we would love to come back some day!

Fantastic for families

By Matt W on 05-Jun-2018

My family, and our friends, had an absolutely great time at the villa. It was fantastic for young children - very safe and with plenty of space. The kitchen has everything you'll need, the rooms are all spacious and very nicely furnished, and the views from the roof are lovely. It's also in a very quiet but easy to find location, and the sea is close enough that I went for a run there and back. There are lots of great places to visit nearby, and some wonderful restaurants in Tavira (highly recommend Sushi D'art). It's also only 45 mins from the airport. Finally, the hosts, Paul and Pam, could not have been more friendly and helpful. We would definitely like to go back!

Fantastic Villa

By Elizabeth Spooner on 15-Oct-2017

Myself and five other friends stayed in this villa the last week of September and had a fabulous time. The villa is extremely well equipped and had everything we could possibly want. The location is great with everything you want within a 10 minute drive but I would say you definitely need a car. Paul and Pam (the property managers) were lovely and were very accommodating to our requirements. I wouldn't hesitate in staying in this villa again and would definitely recommend it.

A wonderful holiday location and superb villa

By Peter L on 30-Aug-2017

We have been staying in this area for the past 10 years and this was by far the best accommodation we have stayed at. Owners with whom we booked with and Paul & Pam who met and facilitated our stay could do no more. The pictures do not do this Villa justice the outdoor space is second to none in such a tranquil and beautiful setting. It comes highly recommended by our whole party which included adults of all ages and 3 kids.

Fabulous villa for large family holiday

By Max Rutherford on 13-Jun-2017

What attracted us to the villa was the unusually spacious garden with grass for small children to run around on. They made good use of this and the safely fenced pool. We made use of the inflatables and paddling pool in the storecupboard too - just right for babies who find the pool too cold. The house is spacious, very attractively decorated and well equiped. Partcularly loved the insect screens on doors and windows. Really effective. Good mattresses and pillows ( very important) Kitchen scales maybe the only thing I would add but I suspect most people dont cook as much as we did! A/C a godsend( we had lovely weather but it must be very hot later in the season) and the multiple bathrooms helped keep everyone happy. The views from the roof terrace are amazing - shame there is no furniture up there to take advantage of it. The location is blissfully quiet but beautiful beaches are within easy reach. Being more used to France and Spain I think we expected to find a local baker for fresh bread in the morning but there are plentiful supermarkets so we adjusted our expectations. Owner Phil and his managers Paul and Pam could not have been more helpful and friendly.

Great house near stunning beaches

By Annie on 08-Sep-2016

The house was better than the photographs show - plenty of space and well equipped. Access was easy as was dealing with the owner. We loved the local beaches - stunning and the village was pretty in a very untouristy area. Also loved the local baker who brought up us a huge selection of cakes to go with coffee mid morning after a swim in the pool

A well appointed villa

By Anonymous on 25-Aug-2016

We were an extended family of 10, with 4 children from 6 months to 8 years of age. Grandparents, parents, and children had a great and relaxing time. The villa has loads of plates, glasses, cutlery and cookware etc etc. We have stayed in places where these items have been ill matched and scarce. There is lots of 'fridge space, essential in this climate, and cupboard space for our items, so often lacking in rentals. The garden is safe and ideal for children and sunbathing! We would definitely return. We are reluctant to say how good it was in case you all go!!

¡Magnífica casa en un entorno tranquilo!

By Fernando S. on 26-May-2016

Estuvimos en Semana Santa tres familias con hijos. La casa es una preciosidad además de comodísima: el amplio salón, las habitaciones, en la cocina no falta detalle. El jardín es un lujo, con unas vistas infinitas y una coqueta piscina. Las playas no quedan nada lejos (en coche) y Tavira también está a muy poca distancia. ¡Muy contentos con nuestra estancia en Casa da Oliveira!

Fabulous property!

By Trish F. on 13-Jul-2015

Our first family holiday for many years, this time with 2 babies as well, so we needed a large property. This is a stunning villa, in a beautiful quaint Portuguese village where you feel as though you are living as part of the country (and not in a tourist centred area) and yet easy access to some of the most beautiful beaches ever. Praia Verde is amazing, as is the infinity pool there! The villa is equipped to a very high standard, and spotlessly clean on arrival. Beds are very comfortable with en suite to 4 out of 5 bedrooms and a beautiful pool and garden. We will definitely return, with our very large family again!! Just a personal note from a disabled person - I had been looking for a disabled friendly villa - and they are few and far between - but the owner, Phil, was very honest about this house and gave detailed information. Whilst not 'registered' for disabled use, it is absolutely perfect for anyone with limited mobility. I use a mobility scooter and was able to access the entire ground floor and the gardens with ease. The ground floor shower room is not suitable for a wheelchair, but it is ideal for anyone who cannot do stairs/steps and is very safe. I would highly recommend this property for anyone elderly or infirm - the only thing preventing them advertising as a 'disabled friendly' home is the lack of wet room - so hopefully other disabled persons will read my review and book this amazing place!!

Excellent family villa

By Ken A. on 01-Oct-2014

The villa is fully equiped both inside and out to meet the requirements of a large family group. The rural village location ensures a calm and peaceful atmosphere but there are several towns, including Tavira within a very short driving distance. There are suberb beahces at the bottom of the road and a large choice of golf courses with a few kilometeres. We had a great time and Phil was a delight to deal with!Response

De villa is prachtig en een aanrader

By Jean Davidts on 16-Apr-2014

Mijn vrouw en ik huurden deze villa voor een week in maart 2014. We beleefden een wondermooie vakantie, dank zij deze zeer mooie en goed ingerichte villa. De administratie om deze villa te huren verliep via internet en was zeer goed en vlot verlopen. Over deze villa is er niets maar dan ook niets negatiefs te vermelden. Zowel de keuken, living, zithoek, alle slaapkamers met hun degelijke bedden, badkamers, toiletten, tuin en terrassen overtroffen ruimschoots onze verwachtingen en ook deze van onze genodigden. Ook het zwembad was mooi, goed onderhouden, maar werd door ons niet gebruikt. De villa is zeer rustig gelegen in een klein dorpje. Een huurauto voor de uitstappen en het shoppen is wel een must. Zelf gebruikten we weinig de zeer goed uitgeruste keuken, maar gingen we in de omgeving vaak uit eten om de smaak van de Algarve echt te proeven, en het was fantastisch. We zien er allen naar uit om er volgend jaar terug te kunnen keren. Jean Davidts uit België.

Excellent Villa

By Kev C. on 07-Apr-2014

Phil was great to deal with very easy and great information. The Villa was absolutely stunning lovely quite rural location yet close enough to Beaches supermarkets and resturants. furnished and equiped to a very high standard. I took my whole family and we all had excellent week and enjoyed staying at the villa very much, I have already recommended it to 2 of my friends and would definitely stay there again. Highly recommended 5 stars.

Beautiful villa i wish i had time to go back again

By Rae on 08-Oct-2013

he experience with both the owner (Phil) and this villa have been absolutely amazing. Phil has been a real pleasure to deal with and the villa is simply stunning. Top quality in any aspect. Pool, big garden, beautiful secluded location 5 minutes drive to many amazing beaches. Tavira is about 15 minute drive and St Antonio probably the same. It was an unforgettable holiday for us all and we are trying to organise another visit again this year. I would certainly recommend this property to families and group of friends. We absolutely LOVED IT! And by the way... Tavira is beautiful and much better than Faro and Albufeira! Less crowded and much nicer!

Beautiful, perfect family Villa!

By Lee Q. on 09-Sep-2013

We recently took our boxing club out to Portugal to train and looked for a villa to cater for us. We came across this villa and were suitably impressed. If your looking for a quiet break to get away from the busy life style then this is the villa for you. Beautifully decorated, spacious and very comfortable. Amenities of the villa are excellent and the pool offers hours of fun, or you can chill out over looking the amazing scenery the villa offers. There is a beautiful restaurant/Bar about 10min walk away where you are looked after by the locals and made to feel welcomed. The beach is only 2 mile away and once you get down there, you wont be disappointed. We ran to the beach each day but it is walk-able. For a training camp it was perfect as we could train on the roof top terrace and do plenty of running in the large garden area and also run to the beach, then on an evening relax and make use of the large BBQ. Each room was in immaculate condition and great detail has been put into the decor and furnishings to make it a home from home. I find it very hard to find a single negative about the villa, probably my only negative was we couldn't stay for an extra week!!! Definitely recommend this place if your are looking for a relaxing chilled out holiday with the bonus of home comforts. We are certainly looking to book again!! 5*

Lovely Villa

By Dave S. on 06-Jun-2013

This is a beautiful modern villa, very clean and well furnished, fantastic garden and pool area. Perfect place to relax and just get away from it all. Local taxi firms drivers were very pleasant and helpful in transporting us around and suggesting places to go.

Refeshing and Modern Villa. a welcome Break.

By Ian W on 22-Apr-2013

It was a refreshing change to book a villa that exceeds your expectations !! Easy to find and only a short drive from Faro. Not far from the beach too. Extremely spacious with lots of open living space.

Spotlessly clean and very well equipt. inc. WIFI. So nice to have a villa with a large lawned garden and open country views. I look forward to visiting again.

Amazing villa

By Clare T. on 06-Apr-2013

We have had a fantastic holiday staying in this villa, it is very modern and equipped with everything we needed. The location is brilliant close to all amenities and great beaches, shops and restaurants. The village is very quaint and only a short distance from Tavira and Monte Gordo, which we had lovely days out to, but we equally enjoyed relaxing by the pool and dining outside. The bedrooms were spacious and very comfortable and great en suites. All in all we fully enjoyed our stay and would definitely return and recommend to anyone.

Loved it!

By Cathy T on 25-Oct-2012

Thanks Phil for letting us rent your villa. it is my pleasure to leave a review as the house was absolutely incredible! I can't fault it. we chose the villa because of the security fencing around the pool which helped us relax more knowing that our little ones could not get to the pool without our supervision. thanks again and we look forward to returning next year!

This is an amazing villa! We couldn't believe how lucky we were when we walked into this fantastic home. Everything you need is there! The kitchen had every conceivable utensil and was modern and well equipped. The bedrooms are very spacious with huge fitted wardrobes and en suite bathrooms. The furniture is modern and the beds extremely comfortable. The village is charming and the area just great - lots of good restaurants. Recommend a trip to Praia Verde Beach - the restaurant there is wonderful and the views are to die for.

Believe me the photographs do not do this villa justice - just book it - you won't be disappointed!!

Stunning villa and location. The pictures do not do this villa justice at all!! It is amazing in every respect - both exterior and interior. High class furnishings, comfy beds and lots of space. Nice quiet village with a small bar and small shop for essential groceries - larger supermarkets are only a few minutes away. Fantastic beaches within 5-10 minutes and great restaurants. All together a great holiday!

Lovely Stay!

By Simo F on 16-Oct-2012

We were a group of friends travelling to Portugal to attend a friend wedding. We were 10 of us sleeping in this villa and the feedback was unanimous... WE ALL LOVED EVERY MINUTE of our stay! The villa is modern, in a quite location but closed to many beaches and many beautiful towns (Tavira and Sant Antonio). Rooms are spacious and all with en-suite. Seriously, all my friends were impressed about the property and I would certainly go back in future if we'll be in similar circumstances! The Olive tree in front of the property is stunning. The view from the roof top unforgettable! We spent our evenings watching the stars! I miss that place on a daily basis! LOL I would go back TODAY. :) I just hope Phil will make me a discount for returning customers!!! ;)))) Thanks again!!!!

Highly Recommended!

By David B on 07-Aug-2012

We spent 12 days at this fantastic Vila. Our family of 4, shared the Vila with 2 other families, fitting a total of 10 people in the Vila. When we arrived, Andrew and Else, a lovely couple looking out for the property of the owner, gave us great tips on the surrounding area for wonderful beaches, great restaurants and many sightseeing highlights.

A tip, since the Vila comes fully equipped and has an outdoor Kitchen with BBQ, there are many places where you can purchase fresh fish and cook it easily yourself. Probably had the best Tuna BBQ'd at the Vila ourselves and prices are really cheap. Another highlight is the roof top terrace, providing a spectacular 360 degree view - and to top this, the terrace has an outdoor shower available also.

Anyone spending their time at the Vila and the surrounding area, will have a great vacation. Our kids spent most of the time in the Pool - also very well taken care of by the pool boy!
