Enjoying of a wonderful mild climate throughout the year, Pedras d'el Rei is a charming resort in the Eastern Algarve. Surrounded by green areas and perfectly integrated in the landscape, where every day you can hear the chirping of birds, suggest relaxing and peaceful stays.
When you rent this small house, 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 something or have a meal while enjoying the gardens and Formosa River. It has one bedroom (with King Size Bed) and there are 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 (or 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.
From the terrace you can enjoy the nature of Ria Formosa protected Natural Park. This part of Algarve is also fresher (from 28 to 32 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 or dinner. There is also a dishwasher and a washing machine. You will have free wireless internet at the resort's reception from 8:00 a.m to midnight. Free private parking in front of the house (at 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 long 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 the beach, you will have to walk and cross a 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" in the front of the Resort. 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€ (Both ways) per person 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 sea food. But you can also eat nice meat dishes.
If you are looking for a modern, fancy place and/or with a very active night life, this is not the best option. If you are looking for rustic place, for a relaxing stay in Algarve surrounded by the nature, this will be a very good experience on this quiet and beautiful natural resort.TripAdvisor property ID 2312673...Read more

Traveled to Pedras del Rei with my three young kids and my elderly mother. We loved the Villa. It was very charming. Location superb. And the washing machine was great. The king bed worked out well for the little ones. The grounds were lovely: pool, grass, and train to beach. Definitely would recommend. Christina was very accommodating with a late check out.
