Apartment in Conceicao, Tavira, Algarve - Near Cabanas De Tavira And Within Walking Distance Of Benamor Golf Course
Lovely Portuguese village house in Conceição close to the village of Cabanas and within walking distance to Benamor Golf Course. The house is located in a quiet cobble street with no passing road traffic. There is ample parking close by. The property is in the centre of the village with easy access to supermarkets, restaurants, cafés, banks, ATM’s, pharmacy, bus and train stations. In Cabanas you will find a further selection of local shops selling fresh bread, fish, fruit and vegetables and local inexpensive restaurants, cafes and bars. In May 2010 a boardwalk was completed in Cabanas allowing you to stroll along the village front over the water where you can stop off at the bars and restaurants overlooking the sea.
About the Owner
My husband and I fell in love with Portugal on our very first visit in the mid 1980’s and we never tire of visiting this enchanting part of the world. In 2006 we were fortunate to be able to purchase our apartment in this beautiful region of the Algarve and try to take every opportunity we can to return to relax and enjoy the charms of the area.
From the Owner
“The apartment is on a quaint cobbled street where our neighbours flowers and trees line the path creating a ‘picture postcard’ of Portugal every time you arrive and leave the front door.”
Activity and Interests
The nearest beach is the fabulous Praia de Cabanas (about a mile away) where the water taxi can bring you to one of the most beautiful beaches of the Eastern Algarve. (Please note that the water taxis only run between April and October). Barril in Santa Luzia is also charming. This beach is accessible by foot or if you don't fancy the walk, there is a small train that takes you to a stretch of golden sand. There are many more beaches to choose from within a few minutes drive.
Faro international airport: 32 km.
Conceição de Tavira is 40 minutes drive from Faro Airport. If you decide to hire a car to explore this beautiful part of the world we can put you in touch with a company offering very competitive rates. Bus and train services are also available with the train station only 10 minutes walk from the apartment.
Vila Real S. Antonio is just 20 minutes drive away and sits on the border with Spain. You can take the short ferry ride from there across to Ayamonte in Spain.
The beautiful town of Tavira is just 2 miles west from the village and is one of the most unspoilt towns in the Algarve with the River Gilao running through its centre and spanned by a 7-arch Roman bridge.
This lovely town retains its historic medieval past with the castle standing watch over some 30 churches. The winding cobble streets are full of small shops, riverside cafes and bars. There is a varied choice of good restaurants at very reasonable prices. Something to suit everyone’s taste.
During the season the outdoor ‘amphitheatre’ on the banks of the river provides evening music and entertainment. Concerts and classical recitals are held in some of the larger churches and we would recommend that you check with the local Tourist Information Office in Tavira for details of what’s going on while you’re there.
On the outskirts of Tavira is the Gran Plaza Shopping Mall with shops, hypermarket, restaurants and cinema.
For painters, photographers and bird watchers the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve (adjacent to Cabanas) is a World Heritage Site and has many rare birds enjoying the large system of tidal lagoons and is rich in plant life. Many species of birds migrate here or stop on the way. Flamingos paddle in the Salinas (salt marshes) and storks make unruly nests on any high vantage point.

From the Owner
“Although its in the heart of the village the apartment provides an oasis where you can relax and enjoy whatever you want to do on your holiday – whether is sitting in the sunshine with a good book, spending your time on any of the spectacular beaches, enjoying the breathtaking countryside or exploring the local history and culture. Everything is within easy reach. Our neighbours are some of the loveliest people you could wish to meet and even if you don’t speak Portuguese, a smile as you pass by is an ‘international language’.”
