About the property

Apartment in Cabanas, Eastern Algarve, Portugal - 'Perfect Location' Is Our Most Frequent Guest Comment! Just 3 Minutes Walk To Seafront

A fully licensed apartment in the unspoilt fishing village of Cabanas, close to Tavira in the eastern Algarve. The apartment is within a secure complex, finished with fine quality tiling and fittings, furnished to the highest standards. A good selection of bars and restaurants in the village - still at very good prices! Everything is within walking distance - supermarket, bars, good selection of restaurants, marina and the new look waterfront. Cabanas beach can be reached by a pleasant, 5 minute boat ride and has 3km of golden sands. Cabanas is an ideal base for exploring the Algarve and South West Spain. Regular train and bus services run along the Algarve coast. Benamor Golf Course is 1km with others close by. The lovely old town of Tavira is 4km and Spain is just 20 minutes away. Ideal for couples and families.

Why Gary Quinn chose Tavira region

This is an immaculate, clean and tastefully furnished apartment in a great location. We love Cabanas for the fact that everything is within a few minutes stroll of the apartment and the locals are so friendly. We also like our euros to go a long way so paying such low prices (compared with the more touristy resorts to the west of Faro) to eat and drink makes everything taste all the better.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment sits near to the waterfront where all the shops and restaurants are. If this appeals to you, be wary of similar looking apartments that are near the Benimore Golf Course as these are quite a walk from the waterfront. I suggest you look at internet location maps before you book. We are lucky to have fantastic agents looking after the apartment for us. All our guests have commented on how welcome they were made to feel on arrival and how reassuring it was to know there was someone local (they live in Cabanas) to call if needed.

'Fabulous holiday in your superb apartment. I am interested in booking for next year'

'We had a most enjoyable and relaxing time in your apartment. All amenities - good restaurants, supermarkets, and the beautiful beach on your doorstep. The apartment is in a great position, getting the sun all day between both balconies. It is well equipped, stylish and very comfortable.'

Great Choice

  • 5 of 5

We booked for our family of two adults and two kids and was delighted with our choice of holiday apartment. The apartment itself was immaculate, fully equiped and catered for all our needs. The pool was great for us all and when we ventured out we found the base was ideally positioned for the beach, local shops and plenty of good value and quality restaurants. Definitely recommended!

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time we stayed at Gary's apartment. The description on the website does not do justice to the very good quality of the property. Situated in the heart of Cabanas it's modern, clean and freshly decorated with a complete range of shops within five minutes walk providing fresh fish, meat and groceries making the self catering really simple and made even easier with the superb fully fitted kitchen.

Cabanas has that friendly feel about it with the picturesque boardwalk along the side of the lagoon. The boat crossing to the beach only a ten minute stroll away brings you to the beach which offers relaxation and, stretching for seven kilometers, complete privacy.

We varied eating in and eating out throughout our stay and discovered many restaurants, all reasonably priced, offering a delicious variety of food all locally sourced and cooked fresh.

We have booked again this year for three weeks and have recommended it to our colleague at the office who has booked it for herself, her husband and her family of two young girls.

We walked to Tavira which is a picturesque town with a Roman history and at night the side streets become restaurants with regular activities in the large square.

Can't wait to get back to Cabanas, it's such a relaxing place made all the more enjoyable by the superb quality of the property !

Another Great Stay at Cabanas Beach

  • 5 of 5

Had another great stay in Cabanas having stayed in the same apartment previously. It was good to see the apartment had been well maintained and our second visit was as enjoyable as our first. We visited as a family and found everything we needed. Apartments in great location just a short walk from front with good choice of restaurants and nice beach. Owner very helpful with our pre-visit queries on resort.
