Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed our time in Tavira. The apartment is an absolute gem. We had friends over for lunch - they had rented round the coast. They were really impressed (envious). We also appreciated the proximity of the complex to town. It meant we could easily walk into town for a meal (with drinks!!) and not worry about driving or taxis - Kevin.

We had the most wonderful holiday. The apartment was all we had hoped for and more. What an attractive little place Tavira is, and with some wonderful restaurants. Weather was brilliant. I have already given your information to friends who want to visit next year - Pete & Anne.

Our first visit to Tavira was a delight. The apartment is fantastic, absolutely first class! We enjoyed the variety of food available in the many restaurants - Marie & Fred.

We had a wonderful stay in your apartment and I must stay it is the nicest, most spacious one we have stayed in! We thoroughly enjoyed the boat to the beach and also the waterfall - Debbie.

Arrived after easy transfer by locally recommended taxi company. Greeted by very friendly and helpful staff. Apartment was very clean and had all the required facilities. The apartment was located about a 20 min walk from the town of Tavira. The only concern about the walk was the first 200m were on the side of the main road with no paths. After this section it was a very pleasant walk. We had a very relaxing break and would definitely use this apartment again and would recommend it to anyone.

There are many beaches to choose from within a short driving distance. They are considered among the best in Europe, yet remain fairly uncrowded. Ilha de Tavira beach is accessed by a delightful short ferry trip from Tavira town, and Barril beach by walking or alternatively a short miniature train ride from Pedras d’El Rei. Manta Rota beach is also nearby and has extensive parking and restaurants.


Faro airport is approximately 40 kms away. Car hire is recommended for easy travel throughout the region. This is best arranged in the UK before your departure. You can pick up your car at Faro Airport when you arrive, and drop it off there when you leave.

Trains from Tavira station will take you to other parts of Portugal, and buses from Tavira Coach Station cover a wide area, including Seville and other parts of Spain.


The peaceful hills to the north of the apartment are ideal for walking, with miles of tracks to enjoy. Bird life abounds in the massive Ria Formosa Nature Reserve, and you may wish to explore the nearby fishing villages of Santa Luzia, Cabanas and Fuzeta.

Further Details:

The apartment complex is situated on the northern edge of Tavira town, one of the most elegant and beautiful towns on the Algarve with a history going back to Roman times. A short walk takes guests into the centre of town. Tavira is a delight to explore, with its narrow cobbled streets, castle and many churches, traditional houses and a Roman bridge spanning the River Gilao. There are many sidewalk cafes and restaurants, some along the palm-lined river. There is a daily market selling excellent locally-grown vegetables, meat and freshly caught fish.
