Why Paul & Julie Dove chose Tavira

We purchased this property after a long time searching. We were specifically looking in Tavira Town for a spacious 4 bedroom property with a private Swimming Pool, close enough to walk, on flat level ground, to the historic centre, the Roman Bridge, cafes , bars and restaurants, when ever we wanted to. Likewise to be close enough to walk to the supermarket, shops and a nearby beach. When we eventually found this property we just fell in love with it. The pool and outside space are perfect for relaxing and enjoying the outdoor life to the full - all year round. The extremely good and convenient location and likewise the fact that it was so close to the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve and the "local" beach, made it a perfect choice. The property is absolutely ideal for spending holidays and is just perfect for spending winter in the sun, in the warm, healthy Algarvian climate and away from the cold harsh winters that are experienced back home.

What makes this villa unique

The properties excellent and convenient location in Tavira Town, is a real plus point and benefit to guests. Being just a leisurely and pleasant 10 minute stroll on flat, level ground to the very heart of Tavira, the historic Roman Bridge and Tavira's many cafes, bars, restaurants and attractions.

The property is well laid out on a flat, level plot with a minimum of steps and the short walk into the heart of Tavira is also on the flat, a real benefit and somewhat unusual and hard to find for villas, with pools in Tavira. The vast majority of which are a fair distance from Town and or on hilly terrain or indeed located remotely up in the hills. So in terms of a high quality environment, excellent fascilities and its extremely good and convenient location this property is a real find and an excellent choice.

The Pool and Large Sun Terrace areas benefit from full direct sun all day long.

Being so close to the Ria Formosa Nature reserve the gardens and surrounding areas to the property allow guests to enjoy sightings of a wide array of beautiful birds, including Storks, Goldfinch, Hoopoo, Doves etc.

Whilst a car is always a benefit and allow guests a high degree of convenience and flexibility a Car is certainly not required if staying at this property due to its excellent and convenient location, with it being very close to everything you may need or wish to see.

The villa with the WOW Factor

  • 5 of 5

Paul and Julie's villa is one of the best we have ever stayed at.The location was absolutely perfect with a nice 20 minute stroll into the town which was full of a variety of bars cafes and restaurants.There was obviously a great deal of thought gone into the villa to make sure guests enjoyed their stay.It is fully equipped and everything that you need is there.The beds are very comfortable and all four of us had a good nights sleep all week.The weather was hot during our week's stay and the air con was a godsend.Outside the pool was a good size.The garden furniture was unbelievable and even had a shaded spot if you wanted to get out of the sun.Paul and Julie were'nt there to greet us as they were away on a family matter,but Paul phoned us to make sure that we settled in o.k and told us more useful information about the villa.This was our first time in Tavira and will definitely be back again in the future and will be looking no further than Paul and Julie's villa to stay at.

A great time was had by all!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the villa for one week in August and had a super time. We would usually hire a car but didn't need to this time due to the proximity of the Villa to Tavira centre itself. The main shopping centre with the large Continente is just over the road so this was a bonus too. The villa is very spacious and extremely well equipped, Paul & Julie have thought of everything-it is truly a 'home from home'. The outside areas are extensive so if you need some shade or indeed a quiet moment, there was always somewhere to go. We found the air conditioning really useful during our stay. All interior areas are spacious and well equipped, you really can travel light should you require. The surrounding area is very quiet, no problems sleeping at night but maybe this was down to the beds being so comfy. It had been a pleasure to deal with Paul and Julie from start to finish, nothing seems to have been too much even when bombarding them with numerous questions at the start. They were on hand during our stay and popped round during the week to check all was ok...with Paul even throwing in an impromptu 'history of Tavira' for which we were really thankfull and found very interesting! The pool was a blessing and is plenty big enough for a swim and cool down, local beaches, especially Cabanas were lovely and it's easy enough to make your way round in a taxi should you need to at a reasonable cost. We love Tavira and the villa and would hope to return again one day.

High quality villa, spacious, well located and good value

  • 5 of 5

Our best villa to date in terms of layout, quality and location. Just 30 mins walk from Tavira (€4 in a taxi) and 3 mins walk from the Gran Plaza with the Continente supermarket. The owners, Paul and Julie, are a lovely couple, very personable, professional and easy to deal with. Their villa is a lovely place to stay everything is quality - the furniture, security, wifi, TV set-up with good U.K. content, the pool and the outside space. We used all four good sized bedrooms with 6 people and never felt in each other's space.

Our third visit to the lovely town of Tavira and this villa is the best location by far.

The whole transaction around the holiday and during the holiday has been faultless and we hope that we will return to both Tavira and this villa in the future.

Immaculate, beautiful villla. Just as described. A real home from home.

  • 5 of 5

I went with family of all ages and we all just loved the villa. It's excellent - lovely decor, spacious, clean and well equipped. It's in a superb location near all amenities. Paul and Julie were an absolute pleasure to deal with from the outset - so kind and helpful and they went out of their way to ensure our stay was as comfortable as possible. They were always available as well if we had any queries. I cannot recommend Paul, Julie and the villa highly enough. Fantastic holiday and we were all very sad to leave. We hope to go back next year.

Spotlessly clean, wonderful location,everything you needed for a great holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We came for six weeks and stayed five months. Paul & Julie the owners of the property are wonderful people,can't do enough to help you and make your stay special. They are the perfect hosts.The fact sheet for Tavira that they have compiled tells you everything you need to know, directions to local restaurants , places to visit and how to get to them. The Villa is on the edge of Town so everything is within a short walk ,Train Station, buses, water taxi, shopping centre , historic sites . Benamor Golf course only ten minutes drive and lots more courses to choose from in the area. The local Portuguese people are so friendly and very helpful and Spain only 20 minutes drive away for a different culture and Tapas. We have loved it out here can't think of any bad points.

Great villa, great location, very relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We’ve stayed in a few different villas over the years, and this is definitely the best we have stayed in. Tavira is a beautiful place and the villa was even better than we hoped it would be. It was really clean and very spacious, the bedrooms are big with very comfortable king size beds. The location is perfect. It is just a 10 minute even stroll into town, 15 minutes away from a beautiful quiet beach and just a few minutes’ walk from the Gran Plaza shopping centre. Very handy for when we ran out of wine! The villa is so close to everything, yet the private pool and garden is very private and quiet, it is easy to forget you are so close to everything. It was so peaceful listening to the birds sing every morning with our morning coffee.

Most days we’d stroll into town late morning get some fresh fish and cheese from the market then head back to the villa, sunbathe a few hours; jumping in the pool and having a swim when the sun got too much. We’d then fire up the BBQ and grill the fish for a late lunch. In the evenings we’d walk into town and sit outside one of the lovely bars along the river or in the squares and watch the world go by before eating in one of the restaurants the owners recommended which were all excellent and very reasonably priced. We never had a bad meal!

We loved every minute of our stay and didn't want to leave. It was the most relaxing holiday we’ve ever had. I’d recommend staying in this villa to anybody as it is perfect! We’ve already booked again for next year with some friends!
