The Location
You will find Eden on the outskirts of the Caldeirao mountain range and only 800m from Monte Rei Golf & Country Club, now listed as Portugal's number 1 golf course and in the top 10 courses in Europe. Well worth a visit even if you do not play golf!

The beach is a 7 minute drive and the local village 5 minutes, with the historical town of Tavira only 10 minutes by car. To the East lies the Spanish border which you can cross in 15 minutes. A day trip to Seville is highly recommended and only an hour and a half drive away. There are many blue flag beaches in the area to choose from. It's central location make it an ideal base to explore the Algarve. All amenities in Manta Rota - a friendly seaside village - are near by and there are many restaurants and bars to choose from. The beautiful beach of Praia Verde with it's centuries old pine forest is also well worth a visit. The Algarve offers most of the year the ideal circumstances to play golf and there are four Golf courses only a few minutes drive away: Quinta da Ria, Quinta de Cima, Castro Marim Golf and the most prestigious of all, the Monte Rei Golf & Country Club. The old towns of Cacela Velha and Castro Marim are also well worth a visit. If you like gambling, there is a casino in Monte Gordo as well as many restaurants offering Portuguese and international cuisine. Don't forget to visit the beautiful town of Tavira, 16 km west from Manta Rota. It is very easy to lose track of time in Tavira, a lovely old town with a rich history. You can spend hours strolling the charming cobblestone streets with it's  many restaurants, shops, bars and terraces to enjoy a refreshment in the sun. Ilha de Tavira, it's famous beach with many small restaurants is only a boat ride away. The beach of Barril in Santa Luzia is also very nice. This beach is accessible by foot or if you don't like to walk, there is a small train that takes you there.
Furthermore, the Ria Formosa Natural Reserve Park and the National Forest of Vila Real de Santo António are both wonderful places for long walks, bird watching or bicycle (can be rented) tours offering visitors many possibilities to observe local fauna and flora. In other words, one of many opportunities to relax and enjoy this special area in the eastern Algarve.

The owners
Five years ago we went to the Eastern Algarve looking for a property in an unspoilt area.

We chose the Algarve as it is just a short 2 hour flight and 40 minute drive to a beautiful warm climate which is generally 20 – 25 degrees higher than the U.K. all year round, Portugal also has no time difference to the U.K. hence no jetlag.

Building our first home in the village of Manta Rota (5 minutes from Eden) we successfully rented the property working alongside our management company Happy Homes in Tavira.

Getting great reports from our guests as to the standards of the property it was not long before we started to look for and found an idyllic piece of land just 5 minutes back up into the hills near Monte Rei.

We wanted to re-create our first venture but on a much more grand scale, and having had 1st hand experience in renting ourselves for many years realised that most villa’s are stereotypical by offering the minimum in comfort and standards we set our brief in making sure this did not happen at Eden

Being fastidious with all aspects of the build made the end result a fun and logical home, all furniture was premeasured to fit into it’s surroundings then sourced in the U.K. and shipped to the Algarve. This enabled us to take our time and purchase the best furnishings possible, posturepedic mattresses, choice of BBQ’s, Smeg oven and the whole kitchen that again was shipped from the U.K.

The Salt water pool was a recommendation by the person who built the pool and is a new experience to anyone who has not swum in one before as it is chemical free and totally child friendly.

So 3 years after the first time we saw the hill sits Eden, It has been a very tough and sometimes trying 3 years but we now feel it has all been worth it, and we can enjoy many happy times there with our children

We sincerely hope you enjoy it too……………..

Thanks - Helen & Graham
