About Jacqueline Rider

Myself and my husband share a keen interest in walking, bird watching and golf. We enjoy using fresh seasonal produce and the markets and vineyards of Portugal provide this in abundance.

Jacqueline Rider purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Jacqueline Rider chose Tavira region

We chose to purchase a property in Cabanas as we wanted a location with good access to restaurants and the sea without being over commercialised. We love to walk along the shore of the Ria de Formosa where many bird spotting opportunities arise. There are many good quality golf courses within in easy drive, these can be booked in Cabanas. Cabanas is easily accessible from Faro airport and has good public transport links which makes car hire optional. The nearby town of Tavira can be reached via a cycle track or provides a nice walk along the salt pans.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is furnished and equipped to the standard which we expect, as it is our holiday home. The apartment is very well positioned for access to all the amenities that Cabanas provides. The balconies are not overlooked and provide an excellent area for enjoying food from the barbecue. Our guests receive a warm welcome from our property managers on arrival. They have an excellent knowledge of the area that has become their home and they ensure that the apartment is maintained to a high standard for the arrival of each guest.

Fabulous stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay and the apartment has everything you need. It is spotlessly clean, fantastically appointed with amazing sea views.

The air conditioning was a godsend as it was pretty hot.

Fantastic balcony to watch the world go by from with unobscured views.

Kitchen was very well equipped and there were lots of games, books and beach equipment.

Fabulous, thank you x

Outstanding Accomodation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed in this apartment 3 times. It is immaculate and so spacious and one of the best locations in Cabanas. You are far away from the front so you are not disturbed by noise yet close enough for everything to be handy. The roof terrace is totally private and has amazing views whilst the large balcony provides sunny and shaded areas. The air con was brilliant and the apartment has lovely extras like a selection of books, games and beach equipment. There is a lovely restaurant literally on your doorstep and 2 local grocery shops within a 2 min walk. The other restaurants around the front are no more than a 5 min walk away and you really don't need a car to explore as the local train station is within a 15min walk. We really can't recommend this place highly enough and the property manager really looks after you. The owner is exceptionally efficient at answering emails and organising your booking. We love it here!

Total relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We have had a fabulous holiday in Cabanas.

Your apartment has everything you need for a relaxing self catering holiday. Attention to detail i.e.- BBQ and picnic equipment, were especially appreciated.

Loved the water taxis, and walks along the front. Lots of restaurants , cafes and bars to sit and relax.

Hope to return in the future.
