Lovely apartment in superb location

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from a 10 day stay in Cabanas, the apartment was perfect. We arrived and were greeted by Jeff and Wendy who were really helpful and friendly, they told us how to get to the beach, where the supermarket was etc..the apartment was spotlessly clean and was lovely and spacious. Air con was a blessing as it was 40C some days but thanks to the air con and comfy beds we were able to get a really good nights sleep!

The apartment had everything we could think of, beach chairs, sun umbrellas for the beach and even a cool bag and ice packs! The kitchen was excellent and contained more than enough utensils to make a full evening meal, which we didn't do very often but it was nice to know we could.

Cabanas itself is a lovely little town, it has enough restaurants to avoid eating at the same place twice in two weeks, the beach is superb and you can find a spot (even in peak season) where you can be sat with nobody else around you for 50metres. The little boat that takes you to the beach just adds to the experience, it's superb and only costs €1.5 for a return ticket!

Within very close proximity of the apartment is the Escalo bar/cafe, it's literally next door and is ideal for a drink or snack, they even have live bands at the weekend although the apartment is so well insulated you don't hear any noise from the bar whilst sleeping.

It's a lovely apartment in a perfect little holiday village, we'll definitely be going back!

Great week in Cabanas

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Cabanas. Lovely quiet relaxing place. We just wanted a relaxing break and we had that. Lovely clean apartment with everything we needed and more. Picked up at the airport as arranged with Shella and dropped to the apartment. Welcome pack was very thoughtful and handy. Beautiful area and the short boat trip to the beach was lovely. Tavira is a nice town close by and we went there by bus and got taxi back. Lovely restaurants and snack bars close by and the local snack bar was good for breakfast. We will definitely return and would recommend the area.

Cabanas de Tavira

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a week and would have loved to have stayed longer. Shella's apartment was like a home from home in the ideal climate. Everything you could possibly need was provided in a beautiful apartment in a perfect location, with lovely pool areas only metres away and also within easy walking distance to the beach and restaurants, bars and shops. I would definitely go back to Cabanas, but would have to rebook Shella's apartment as it was brilliant. Wendy and Jeff who manage the apartment were a fountain of information and so friendly and helpful. We have been on many self-catering holidays and I have to say location and comfort were top class here. Do yourself a favour and book this apartment you will not be disappointed.

Little Gem

  • 5 of 5

An excellent apartment. Spacious, well equipped, bright and clean. Air con all round. Comfortable 10 min stroll gets you to restaurants, supermarkets, beach ferry. Beside a modern church, which doesn't provide a spectacular view, but the convenient location made up for that. Anyway, if your nose is in a book, you wouldn't worry about the view, would you? And, to put minds at rest, the church bells chime only between 9am and 9pm, NOT all night. Would I stay again? Most definitely yes.
