“Great villa though a bit worn with very hard beds”

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 mobile coverage is very poor here and we had to spend a lot of time in Tavira Cafes planning the rest of our trip.

“Beautiful location-a perfect family getaway!”
Reviewed 21 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

I have recently returned from Casa Al-Baraka, having enjoyed a brilliant family holiday there with my husband and 11/9 year old daughters. The location was beautiful, up in the peaceful mountains yet just an easy 10 minute drive to the beautiful, traditional town of Tavira and ferry which takes you to the fantastic beach on Ille do Tavira. Shamsa, the host was extremely helpful prior to our stay even advising us where to shop /eat out for my gluten/lactose intolerant daughter- the supermarket in Tavira has a fantastic range of specialist food and the local market had a super selection of fresh fish, meat, fruit and veg. A car is essential for the location but make the most of having it and also visit Seville in Spain for the day, you will not be disappointed!

Have just returned from a wonderful stay at Casa Al-baraka. It was just fantastic! The Villa is very well equipped and spacious. Tavira being the closest town (about a 15 min drive) which wasn't an issue for us at all. You are way up in the hills with beautiful vistas all around. There is a local restaurant nearby (order ahead) which we used on a regular basis and also a small cash and carry for essentials and a crafty beer sitting at the bench with the locals. We were a party of 4 using 3 very spacious bedrooms and wanted somewhere that wasn't overlooked and in real Portugal. This place delivered on all fronts. Shamsa is commutative throughout the booking process and beyond. She has a small network of people who take care of you close to the Villa...lovely friendly people! If you want to be close to town and nightlife, don't go but having said that a Taxi from Tavira to the Villa is only 12 euros. Would definitely go back.. Today, tomorrow... Soon please....
