About Bridget Collier

We first visited Tavira in 2006, and fell in love with it straight away. Tavira is a charming and historic roman town. We are really pleased that we found a unique luxury private condominium with incredibly spacious accommodation 242 sq mts, including two roof terraces with exterior views and interior views, and access to the romantic square in the town centre 5-10 mins walk away. We have furnished it to a luxury standard and do everything possible to ensure the comfort of our guests. We offer a meet and greet service and welcome packs to help get you started. Our aim is for you to have a fantastic holiday and do everything we can to ensure everything runs smoothly. Our management company is local and available and can be contacted by telephone

Why Bridget Collier chose Tavira

Tavira is 40 mins from Faro Airport and has low cost flights from UK airports. The climate is mild and boasts approx 300 days of sunshine. It is only 30 mins from the Spanish border. The beaches are superb and there are 5 blue flag beaches. The Ria Formosa is a nature lovers paradise and there are cycle trails and mountain walks. Tavira island offers excellent fish restaurants in a peaceful tranquil setting, and can be reached by a 5 mins ferry boat. The roman bridge in the town spans the river and there are many varied al fresco restaurants to suite all tastes and budgets.

What makes this house unique

We love the convenience of being able to walk into town for bread, daily paper or a morning coffee and explore the town on foot. There is a daily food market and several large supermarkets nearby. The roof terrace has sunny and shaded areas with sun loungers and parasol to Mountain View/sea view side and a dining table/recliner chairs and barbecue on the inner terrace for long summer nights dining with friends and family. The property has heating and air con in all the bedrooms and living area where you can enjoy Sky TV and DVD, as well as games. There is a very large kitchen that leads to a separate utility room with washer/dryer and internal patio area with table and chairs and clothes dryer if required (stored in utility room).

Guestbook comments from the owner

'Beautiful town house fully equipt with everything you need. Superb pool with spacious sun deck. Wonderful views over both town and countryside. Well located on edge of traditional Portuguese town, 10 minutes walk to numerous restaurants. Very quite at night. We had a great holiday and will return.' David - Southport.

The spacious rooms and jacuzzi bath were a delight. We loved the roof terrace with the fantastic views over Tavira. Helen.

lovely house

  • 5 of 5

this is a really lovely house to stay in. i have never been to anywhere so well equipped, we wanted for nothing. the beds are comfortable, plenty of nice qood quality towels and linen.

lots of sitting out areas in sun or shade and the pool area is very nice too.

there is an excellent Webber Bbq on the roof terrace with plenty of chairs- and the view is amazing- bring your binoculars.

its an easy walk to town- downhill and on the flat and a taxi is very cheap for the return trip.

the owners provide beach towels for hire, this is a really good idea, you dont need to fill your case with towels, or books for that matter as there is a good selection of English books.

the complex is very peaceful at night and the stars were amaxing.

i have no hessitation in recommending Bridgets house.

Tavira Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Absolute FIRST CLASS property. I can honestly say that during our stay we couldn't have wanted or asked for more. Spacious, superbly equipped, and EVERY little detail to make a holiday enjoyable has been thought of by the more than helpful owners. I don't think I can add to these words, to list everything good about it would take much time and a lot of space!

This was our first time in Tavira and we found it to be truly wonderful. the quietness and unspoilt traditional Potuguese nature really appealed to us. If you like laid back, quiet, please yourself holidays then this is for you, if you expect loud bars and clubs it probably isn't.

The walk into/back from town was always pleasant, it never felt too long (even when walking back from the supermarket with shopping!).

We intend to return, hopefully many times!

A Great Holiday in a Fantastic Villa!

  • 5 of 5

This property was fantastic! It was like staying in a five star hotel! Clean, well equipped, fabulous kitchen, welcome pack, meet and greet - which gave us information about the villa and area, comfortable beds, - nothing was else was needed. Plenty of sunbeds for all four of us to relax on the roof terrace. The whole complex was beautifully maintained, great pool and sun loungers. Very safe area, felt very relaxed. This was our first visit to Portugal and we were delighted with the town of Tavira. If you want to experience a real Portuguese town that has not been taken over by tourism - then Tavira is the place!

Ilha de Tavira is approx 10 minutes drive from the property, to get to the island you need to take an aqua taxi or ferry, pricing in April 2008 for the ferry was €1.30 per person return, the island is roughly 4 km long and has bars and restaurants with volleyball and football on the sandy beach. The beach is never crowded even in peak season due to its peak size.


Tavira is situated about 35km east of Faro. There are various ways of travelling from the airport such as taxi, train and bus. Alternatively there are several car rental companies at the airport with very competitive rates especially if you book in advance.


The Historic town of Tavira is a 5-10 minute walk from the property with a range of bars and restaurants as well as lots of interesting places to visit. The Spanish border is only 20-25 minutes drive to the East from the property with Faro, Albufeira and Vilamoura less than 30 minutes drive to the West. There are several unspoilt villages within 10 minutes drive.

Further Details:

Tavira has an excellent array of shops, bars and restaurants, and a fresh daily market for vegetables fruit and fish. Tavira can be explored by a miniature train or by horse and carriage. There are also many mini supermarkets to get usual supplies.
