Welcome! enjoy a bedroom with ensuite and private entrance in my lovely wooden house in the hills just 7km north of Tavira, a town with beaches and all amenities. Your stay includes a yummy breakfast served on the deck overlooking lovely hill views.
Would you like to have a unique Portuguese experience? Welcome to come and stay in my log house in the hills just 7 km north of one of the Algarve's loveliest towns, Tavira.
I am Linda, a Canadian, living here in Tavira for over eight years and I can help you see an authentic slice of Portuguese life, here in the little hamlet Bodega.
You may find that you wish to simply hang out in the hammock, relax or do yoga in the Teepee, hike for kilometers in the hills or visit the waterfall nearby.
I will be happy to give tips to organize your vacation and see the sites of local towns and villages around the Algarve.
For those so inclined there are several top class golf courses in the area, and of course the exceptionally beautiful beaches of Ilha Tavira are just a ferry ride from the centre of town.
Historical lovely Tavira will charm you and keep you busy exploring it's rich and varied sites, eating local fare, or relaxing at one of many riverside cafes- come and enjoy!
You will not be disappointed.
The only rule is to relax and enjoy! Take in the beautiful vistas and energies of Bodega.
Some guidelines which I appreciate being followed:
1. Recycle! Use environmentally friendly products
2. Don't waste water (especially if we are in a drought)
3. The use of the kitchen is not part of the cost but if you wish it can be arranged (for a contribution) or I can cook for you occasionally.
Linda nous a gentiment accueillis dans sa jolie maison en bois qu'elle aime tant. La chambre est très agréable, la salle de bain aussi.
Les petits déjeuners sur la grande terrasse, avec la confiture au citron maison..., les crêpes délicieuses ,le pain de Maria qui habite la ferme à côté, sont un moment de pur bonheur.
Linda est toujours très disponible pour donner des conseils.
Bref, un très joli souvenir !

Our experience at Linda's Beautiful Bodega B&B topped the charts. The most obvious thing to say is that the house is beautiful, the view exceptional and the ambience artsy and homey. I wish my own bed at home was as comfortable (now I have to go out and get another mattress). The house is located about 6 km. outside of town in the hills surrounding Tavira. Just right to have access to the village and to heaven at the same time. Linda is charming and an unusually delightful host. She drove us to and from town when we needed a lift, made us delicious breakfasts with homemade jams and surprised us with homemade muffins. A perfect balance was struck between how much privacy and interaction we wanted. And when we forgot a small package upon leaving, she went out of her way and found us at the train station to hand deliver it! I could go on, but you get the idea. We'd go back in a flash.
Ia orana Linda,
nous avons passé un super séjour, trop court à notre goût, bien reposant dans le calme et la sérénité de cette jolie maison en bois au milieu d'une belle nature ; la chambre fut conforme aux photos du site et un bon petit déjeuner nous attendait le matin.
Merci Linda pour ton accueil
I was struck by the relaxed and unaffected way Linda welcomed me into her beautiful home. I found her very engaging and interesting to talk to and could have spent many more hours in conversation. My impression is that Linda will meet you on whatever level you're at. This is more than just a place to stay - if that's what you want.
Oh, and the accommodation is great: private bathroom and a dangerously comfortable bed.
We were guests at Linda's Bodega B&B for two nights and found this to be a very special place! If you have the chance, go see for yourself and discover this true gem. Linda made us feel at home right away, the room is very nicely decorated and her breakfast on the porch was delicious. But even more important: her warmth and calm energy, inspiring lifestyle and genuine interest in other people are what make this a special one!
We drove up to the Bodega in the dark, so we had no idea what to expect in the morning. It was perfect to wake up there though, such a beautiful house and garden, sheltered in the hills. The room has a very good atmosphere, very cosy and comfortable.
As a host, Linda was wonderful. We really enjoyed staying, and can definitely recommend!
Linda's abode was quite amazing. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect place to stay. We almost lucked out with having rain for our time in Tavira as we didn't want to leave Linda's place. Her place is a must if you're looking for some r&r off the beaten path.
Hi! I'm Linda, a Canadian, living in Portugal for nearly 10 years. I've taken on a project of building a wood house here in the Algarve; it has turned out to be a bit long and drawn out, and has actually become a lifestyle.
Formerly (and still informally) I was a Homeopath, and I have been part of the artist community here in Tavira with my photography, but my passion has become bettering the earth (and all things 'alternative') starting right here in my little corner of the world. Bodega.
Simplicity. Beauty. Nature.
