About this listing

Enjoying a wonderful mild climate throughout the year, Pedras d’el Rei is a charming resort in the Eastern Algarve, at about 2 Km from Santa Luzia and at 7 km from Tavira. Totally surrounded by nature and perfectly integrated with the landscape.

The space

When you rent this small cottage, you are renting more than a house. You are renting what the whole resort of "Pedras del Rei" has to offer. A big swimming pool, a tennis court, restaurants and bars and lounge areas with some night activities. Nice trips by train to the beach and a great concept of a giant garden to all resort residents.

The house has a nice terrace where you can drink or have a meal while enjoying the gardens and Formosa River. The House has one bedroom (with King Size Bed, 180 cm × 200 cm) and there are also two single beds on the Living Room, so this house accommodates up to four people which means that this house if perfect for a couple with 2 children (we can supply an extra mattress for a 3 children). We are keeping a large pine tree next to the house. This way, the house has lots of surrounding shadows keeping it fresh because we don't like to have A/C at the house, but we supply fans.

From the terrace, you can enjoy the nature of Ria Formosa protected Natural Park. This area of Algarve is also fresher (from 28 to 33 degrees during the summer). The gardens are available to all resort guests. It is a big garden where you can rest or read a book.

We supply towels and bed linen too. The kitchen is fully equipped to make your own breakfast, lunch, and dinner. There is also a dishwasher and a washing machine. You will have free and unlimited wireless internet at the resort's reception from 8:00 a.m to midnight. Private parking in front of the house (at 50 meters). We have just replaced the old 14" TV that you see on the photos by a new LED 24" TV. Private parking in front of the house (50 meters).

The house is at 250 meters from the Swimming Pool and tennis court. You just have to walk 4 minutes to get there. On the other hand, is far enough to keep peace and quiet during the day (avoiding the rush of the children at the swimming pool) and during the night (avoiding the noise of the night activities at the lounge area near the pool).

To go to Barril's famous beach, residents will have to cross a rustic bridge to the beach island just in front of the resort and take the rustic train (free of charge for our guests) that takes 6 to 7 minutes on a great trip over the Formosa River Natural Park and arrive to the beautiful beach of Barril placed at the island called "Ilha de Tavira". Barril Beach is very well known in Algarve for his high quality. You can rent a canopy or a sun umbrella. You can also enjoy the bars, restaurants, nautical sports, shops and Ice Cream shops on the beach. Train trips cost 2,4€ per person (Both ways) but it is free for our guests (we supply 4 free passes).

The nearest village to the resort is Santa Luzia and it is at 2,4 Kilometers which means you can walk to this village. It is a fisherman's village, so there are lots of nice restaurants to eat fish and seafood. But you can also eat nice meat dishes.

If you are looking for a modern, fancy place and/or with a very active nightlife, this is not the best option. If you are looking for a rustic place, for a relaxing stay in Algarve surrounded by nature, this will be a very good experience in this quiet and beautiful natural resort.

The area: This area of Portugal is gorgeous and the beach was wonderful. We had complimentary passes to use the little train to get there and loved it. Pedras De El- Rei was well maintained and clean. The surrounding cottages were a little noisy with music and football and loud mobile phone calls. The pool was very clean and the cafe was decent. The accommodation: The apartment was clean and check in went smoothly. Unlike other Airbnb accommodations I have stayed in, there was no drinking water left for us, so after 12 hours travelling and arriving in 37 degree heat, we were very disappointed. There was also no washing up liquid, no soap in the toilet and only one toilet roll. The washing up sponge was very old and smelled terrible. The ignition on the cooker didn't work and there were no matches to light it. The fridge was quite old and didn't really keep things cold. All of this meant we had to trek out to the very expensive resort shop to buy all these things on our first day - not a great start to our holiday. We went with a toddler and I would say it isn't suitable for a young child as there are lots of ceramic tile steps and exposed brick making the beds. We spent just under £700 for one week and I would say that was not good value. The hosts: Christina & John seemed very nice and responded quickly with plenty of information. The check-in and check-out process was great.

Thank Marion for your review. Short rentals have flourished due to various reasons but the main one, by far, was the price. People can rent a complete house for less than an hotel room. But still they want all the commodities of a hotel and that's not possible for this price range. For the same week that Marion booked our house, it would have costed 1050 British Pounds if she did directly on the resort's administration. So, probably, this booking she made with us has been a bargain for this small cottage. Note that you don't only book a small cottage. You book all that the resort's and its famous beach has to offer. Best Regards.

What a great stay we had! The house is in fact small as the hosts mention but includes everything needed for a great stay. The house has a nice terrace and this is the key because you can enjoy what Algarve and what the resort has best to offer. Great weather and a perfect union and harmony with the nature. From the balcony we have a great view over "Ria Formosa" which is a the Natural park from Faro to Tavira. The House is placed in a quiet area of the resort, far enough from the more busy places ner the swimming pool and bars area. Though you can quickly go to them. To go to the beach, you can go walking (many people do it) but you can also take a small train that goes to the beach called Barril. This 6 or 7 minutes ride is really nice and the landscape is espectacular. Christina & John gave us 4 cards to have free access to this train and we had also a card to be able to free park our car on the parking area just in front of the house. This is indeed a great place for a couple with 2 sons to have a very good vacations, enjoying this beautiful zone of the Algarve. Your children can even make new friends because, sometimes, some are playing, during the day, in the gardens near the house. We would definitely come again to this house. Thank you!

We enjoyed our stay in the little house of Cristina! The view is one of the best of Pedras d'el Rei! And the noice of the birds and the wind through the trees makes it very relaxing! The beach is LOVELY! And also the restaurant at the beach 'Peixes and Pecados' is excellent! A great holiday when your child is 1 year old and your need some relaxing time!

Mooi omgeving, rustig (deze tijd van het jaar), heerlijke zee en stand, goed te bereiken te voet (3 volwassene) maar ook met treintje. Advies huurauto om de omgeving te verkennen. Wel beperkte middelen in huis, die mi wel bij de standaard uitrusting zouden mogen horen (afwasmiddel/vaatdoek/ afvalzakken/ info mbt. deponeren in van wc-papier in afval emmer (ook daar ontbreken afvalzakken). Geen peper en zout. Er vlogen nogal wat motten in huis rond. En voor mensen met allergie: geen ideale plek, er lopen katten rond en die komen graag op bezoek (lopen ook het huis binnen als ze de kans krijgen) en slapen op de terras stoelen.
