About the property

Apartment with sunny south facing balcony overlooking the pool

This first floor very spacious one bedroom apartment is located in the Quinta da Gomeira development in picturesque Cabanas. It is quality fitted throughout to a high specification.

There is a large sunny living room overlooking the pool. For those cosy nights in why not choose from the selection of CDs to play music on the stereo system or watch a movie with the DVD player. The flat screen television is wi-fi enabled so you can log into Netflix or other apps to watch your favourites or listen to numerous radio stations. There is currently no Portuguese TV stations and only a couple of English speaking stations such as Sky News). Lots of books are stored away in the two footstools for when you want to chill by the pool. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need including microwave, washing machine and toaster. Just off from the kitchen is a lovely sunny terrace overlooking one of four pools for you to sit enjoying your breakfast or a relaxing drink. The pools are full size and set within highly maintained landscaped gardens. You can use my beach towels by the pool as there are no sun loungers. A short walk away at Escalho's you will also find good food, sport on TV and friendly English speaking locals to chat to over a coffee or beer!

Perfect for a couple, there is a double bed in the bedroom along with large sliding wardrobes and bedside drawers. There is the benefit of full air conditioning and shutters to all windows to keep you cool on the hottest of days.

This apartment is in an excellent location being only a few minutes walk to the village and waterfront. Here there are numerous bars, cafes and restaurants offering a good choice of food at excellent value or you can take a one minute ferry ride over to the beautiful long pristine white sandy beaches of Cabanas Island. If you want to spend a day at the beach, you're welcome to make use of the beach toys, parasol and coolbag for your picnic.

There are a range of championship courses nearby for golfers, numerous stunning beaches for sun worshippers and cycle tracks to take you to many other wonderful places around. The train station is only a short walk away from which you can travel all over the Algarve or along to the Spanish border.

There is a children's play area nearby, tennis courts and lawn bowls just across the road and places to hire bikes from.

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 a couple of miles away and can easily be reached by local bus or train as can other areas of the Algarve. The Spanish border can be visited in around 25 minutes by train and you could travel over to Seville by car in around 90 minutes.

You'll find everything you need for a perfect break.

About Monica

Registered Portuguese holiday home: registration number 249/AL

Monica purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Monica chose Cabanas de Tavira

I fell in love with the Algarve many years ago and after staying in lots of different places I am very excited to have bought this wonderful place in Cabanas. The beautiful beaches are ideal for me as I enjoy running long distances and I could run all the way to Spain here if I wanted. There is such a lovely feel to the place and the people are so friendly. I just know you will love it too and look forward to welcoming you and your friends.

What makes this apartment unique

This apartment has a wonderful sunny aspect and the balcony is ideal to sit at and enjoy the odd glass of wine or two. It is modern and fully furnished to a very high standard. It is not a holiday apartment but more a home from home - you'll find things such as a hairdryer, iron, books, CDs, DVDs and even a coolbag for the beach.

Modern, clean and spacious apartment

  • 5 of 5

I stayed for 1 week in June and found the apartment to be a great base in Cabanas. The location is ideal, nice and quiet complex but only a few minutes walk to the front. The air con was welcome and the pool looked great although I did not use it this time. I would definitely stay here again when next in Cabanas!

Extremely well equipped apartment in a brilliant location

  • 4 of 5

The owner monica said that you find everything you would need for a holiday in her apartment, and we certainly agreed with that! even down to a cool bag and freezer block and beach towels for a perfect picnic. Good sized kitchen with everything you need including a washing machine and a fold out dryer. Large bedroom and living area including TV and lots of DVDs and games. The pool and surrounding areas were immaculate, and shops/restaurants/ all within a few minutes walk.

Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was everything we wanted and more.

A very good size for 2 people.

A good location, about a 8 minute walk to the town and the beach boats. What a super beach

Lots of extra touches that make the holiday so enjoyable. Cooler bag and beach towels etc.

Lots of cds and dvds. Magazines and books.

Lots of left over food like salt sugar cooking oil etc.

We had a super time and if we return to Cabanas we would book this apartment.

Wi-fi would be useful, but most bars and restaurants had it.

Owner's Response: I'm glad to hear you had a good time and look forward to welcoming you back for your next holiday. Cabanas is ideal as a base to explore other areas as the train station is a short walk away. You can go all the way along the Algarve or even go over to Spain. I have found Wi-fi has not been needed as Escalo's café bar has Wi-fi. It is only a minute away and is a great place to meet others with a coffee or glass of wine but I will look to get it put into my apartment as well. Hope to see you back soon.

Well located , nice quiet area. Apartment was clean and bright and very comfortable for two people.

  • 4 of 5

This was our second time staying in Monica's apartment and our fourth visit to Cabanas da Tavira. Cabanas is ideal for a quiet family holiday. There is a very nice boardwalk and many quality restaurants, cafes and bars to visit. The prices are certainly cheaper that similar restaurants in Dublin.Unfortunately we did have get very good weather, but a trip to the beach by boat taxi is a must. Tavira is ten minutes away by taxi and it also has some fine restaurants. We will return to Cabanas again and recommend it.
