The owner (Ted Mooney) is not in Portugal during the summer but can be contacted by phone. The relevant phone numbers are supplied to all clients once a booking is confirmed.

From the A22 motorway which runs between Faro and Seville, take the Tavira exit. Follow the N270 direction Tavira. After 4km come to a roundabout on the N125 ordinary road which connects Faro with the Spanish border. Turn left, direction Spain. After 800m there is a sign to the right for Tavira (just before a tall river bridge). Take this turn and turn right again immediately into Colina da Asseca where you will find Villa Boa Vista.
