This is a lovely, well-equipped apartment with lots of natural light from windows on three sides. It's only a few steps away from one of the complex's swimming pools. It has everything you need and is comfortable, clean and nicely decorated.

It's a 5 minute cab ride or a 20 minute gentle stroll down to Tavira town centre which is charming and uncrowded, with lots of pretty squares, immaculately maintained public areas and a huge choice of cafes, bars and restaurants in which to while away your time.

Tavira's beach is reached by a brief ferry service from the centre of town and it's well worth the effort. Golden sandy beaches, gently shelving into crystal clear water are paired with loungers, cushions and a beach umbrella (€10 per day for two persons) and there are also several bars and restaurants from which to choose.

As far as restaurants are concerned, we'd recommend “O Castelo” as the best we tried, absolutely the finest steak we've ever eaten. This is at the top of Rua da Liberdade, just past the Post Office.

We also liked the “Restaurante Nora Velha” very close to Tavira Gardens (turn left out of complex entrance, walk down to roundabout, turn left there and up the hill for 200 yards). Great fish, unbelievably good house red (€7/btl) and friendly staff.

Away from Tavira, in Santa Luzia, you must go to “Alcatruz”, a small family run place which again serves wonderful local food at reasonable prices.

Avoid “A Ver Tavira” near the Castle in Tavira, it's over priced and we were hugely disappointed. Nice view though, so maybe visit them for a pre-dinner drink and then go down to O Castelo!

Lastly, we must mention our delightful hosts, Sean and Elaine who own this apartment (and one other). They were extremely helpful, welcoming and hospitable and even asked us to join them for dinner during our stay. They were great company and I would strongly urge you to rent one of their lovely apartments.

We'll definitely be back!
