The detached villa is 45 minutes from Faro (the nearest airport) and 20km from the Spanish border. The nearest towns of Conceição and Cabanas are 5 minutes away with a variety of local shops and restaurants.


A choice of excellent beaches can be reached in about 10 minutes, lining the seaward side of a 35 mile-long sand bar which is an internationally protected resting place for birds travelling between Northern Europe and Africa


The sandy beach is huge, backed by tufted dunes and is reached by cheap shuttle ferries, by pontoons or by car.


Around the jetty there has been some development with water sport facilities, beach umbrellas and loungers and half a dozen bar/restaurants.


If you want to escape from the crowds, a short walk along the beach will soon take you to more peaceful surroundings.


There is a horse riding centre at a farm within walking distance/short drive providing lessons for the inexperienced and rides in the countryside around Casa Rosa for both novice and expert alike.


Quite possibly the best value in the Algarve!


Casa Rosa is ideal as a base for investigating this peaceful area and there is plenty for golfers with three first class courses within 5 minutes of the villa.


The nearest is Benamor Golf designed by Sir Henry Cotton, details can be found at Algarve Tavira - Benamor Golf Homepage.
