Apartment in Cabanas de Tavira, Eastern Algarve, Portugal - Shared Pool

Fully air conditioned/heated and spacious apartment with south facing terrace located within the small picturesque village of Cabanas. Our 2 bedroom, 1st floor apartment offers all you'll need for a wonderful holiday and is equipped with a fully fitted kitchen, comfortable lounge and dining area. Perfectly situated on the Quinta de Gomeira development, the apartment is adjacent to 1 of 4 swimming pools for residents use and close to the village and waterfront. Here there are numerous cafes and restaurants offering a good choice of food at excellent value. The 2 minute ferry-boat across the lagoon takes you to the beach where there are 3km of lovely golden sands. Cabanas is a delightful place to relax and if you enjoy walking, you can explore the coastline and the natural areas of beauty nearby. The historic village of Tavira is only 5km away and can easily be reached by bus/train. Other areas of the Algarve are easily accessed, including golf courses. Seville is approx 2 hrs by car. We have a tourist license for renting out our property which means that the apartment has been inspected by the Portuguese authorities and complies with all regulations.

Apartment With South Facing Balcony
+44 -7958531827
Cabanas de Tavira Tavira region

Good apartment

  • 4 out of 5
Great location in Cabanas this apartment was one of the best we have stayed at in our 6 visits to this lovely village. It was well equipped, comfortable, good size and with a sunny south facing balcony. We received service from Karen who owns the apartment and a friendly meet and greet from Sue who looks after it for her. Went to Tavira Island beach at last and sorry we hadn't been before, it is fabulous and a lovely 20 minute ferry ride down the river. Favourite places to eat this time were the Wine House Tapas Bar for lunch mainly but also just for a drink as the only place that seems to have German lager on draft! Excellent food also at the Cabanas Brasserie, O Escahlo and Sons da Ria but a bit disappointed this time at Sabores da Ria which had previously been our favorite restaurant. Would recommend this apartment to anyone staying in the area.

Activity and Interests

Special interest holidays:

Close to the Ria Formosa, a nature reserve, the area is ideal for walking/bird spotting/cycling and various water sports. There are also historical sites to visit.


The apartment is located approx 5 minutes walk from the waterfront where local fishing boats take people to the 3km unspoilt beach of Cabanas through the day in season. The boat costs approx 1.50 euros return. There are parasols and sun beds for hire and a bar over on the beach. A short drive down the road will bring you to Manta Rota where you can park and walk onto the beach and there are also many more beaches along the coastline to explore.


Cabanas is approx 40 mins drive from Faro airport, the nearest international airport. Flights also available to Lisbon/Seville. Lisbon is approx 2.5hrs drive and Seville is approx 2hrs. Taxis from Faro airport will cost approx 45 euros each way. There are bus/train services between Faro and Cabanas and the local area. There is also a shuttle bus service-please ask for more details. The local train station in Conceicao is a 15 min walk from the apartment. The Spanish border is 25 mins drive away.


The motorway A22 (currently a toll road payable at local post offices) now runs the length of the Algarve making the western Algarve very easy to explore. The historic town of Tavira is approx 10 minutes away by car. Zoomarine - theme park and zoo near Albuderia is approx 45 minutes by car and Aquasplash about 30 minutes away. Faro is approx 35km west and the Spanish border is about 25km east of Cabanas.

Further Details:

Cabanas has its own small local market selling fresh fish/meat/fruit and veg. There is a local bakery and a couple of butchers as well as a supermarket, that is open daily to approx 8pm. There is a bank with a cash machine and a post office. There are a wide variety of restaurants/bars offering freshly produced local dishes. ‘Escalhos’ a local bar, is run by a friendly Portuguese family, providing freshly baked bread, breakfasts/lunches/snacks/evening meals including a typical Portuguese dish of the day. The prices are very reasonable, a bottle of beer/glass of wine for just over a euro (2013 rates) and also free WiFi access. We find it quite handy and welcoming to pop into, anytime of the day. ‘Pedros’ restaurant located on the waterfront, offers lunches and evening meals and is very popular at weekends and peak times. The ‘Ideal’ restaurant, located in the heart of the village is a lovely traditional Portuguese restaurant. A three course meal with coffee is approx 15 to 20 euros at either of these. We have enjoyed meals at both with family and friends. The Sabores Da Ria restaurant has stunning views over the Ria Formosa and serves very reasonably priced meals at lunchtimes and evenings. SKY Sports is also available. These are just a few of the restaurants available and some also provide a take away service. There are more tourist attractions that can be found on the Western Algarve that can be reached either by the use of a hire car or by booking a tour bus. Trips to Seville and inland Portugal are also an option as well as boat trips/diving that can be organised locally. Bikes can also be hired. We are happy to provide you with more details as required.
