Cute rural cottage for 2-4 persons with a pool near Tavira and Faro

Quinta da Murteira cottage is for lovers of peace and the wild nature. This secluded property lies in more than three hectares of grassy slopes and hills. It is the perfect getaway from the crowds of tourists.

This unique 2 bedroom cottage is only a 15 minutes drive from the city of Tavira, its lagoon (Ornithological Reserve) and its beautiful sandy beaches. Due to its central position in the “Sotavento Algarvio” (eastern part of the Algarve), it is the perfect starting point for a day at the beach or to discover the South of Portugal, or even Andalusia. (Spain is only 40 km away, Seville is 180 km away.)

At ‘Quinta da Murteira’, we appreciate above all absolute tranquillity, but also plenty of sun, bird watching, hiking or just relaxing by the pool.

My Story:

Ever since childhood, I have experienced artificial tourist areas. But when I tried to create holidays with authentic experiences myself, I ran into big problems… It was deeply frustrating, I couldn’t make a living from it and I was afraid of losing everything.

I was weak and vulnerable – it was a painful time. But I succeeded in the end – and it is a fantastic feeling to know the secret to having authentic holidays. You can also ensure holidays without tourist crowds – fortunately, there is still hope!
