About Denis Sullivan

As a Wealth manager, a number of clients asked me about buying property abroad. This resulted in me travelling to many of the holiday destinations in Europe to try and establish the best place to buy a holiday home. I visited the Canaries, Spain, Italy, France, Cyprus (north & south), as well as Portugal. Of all the destinations, the Algarve came out top for consistent weather, ease of access from most UK airports, short journey time, low crime, without too much development and most importantly, friendly locals.

In the end, having visited Tavira through a recommendation, my wife and I fell in love with the place. We bought an apartment as it was very central and secure. I haven't come across anyone yet who has stayed and not loved it.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The apartment was beautiful and so was Tavira - the beach on the island was fabulous! Valerie Thompson (May 09).

Portugal's superb and so's the Apartment. I only wished I'd discovered Portugal and the apartment sooner. Nigel Saunders (July 09)

Tavira is a beautiful place, just walking down to the main square in the mornings was worth it, just to sit and watch the world go by. Graham Bishop (Aug 09)

Had a great time in Tavira C.MacDonald (July10)

I liked Tavira and want to return to see more of it. It was a very interesting place. David Davies (Aug10)

The Location was amazing and could not have been any better situated. Thank you for the superb service and apartment, in what we feel is the most idyllic setting. We hope to book again! Michelle Burton (Aug 10)

Having a wonderful time in Tavira! Please book the same time next year for me! Joy Philpotts (July 2014)

Perfect location, clean,comfortable,spacious apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is in an ideal location, quiet yet near to all the facilities Tavira has to offer.

We were a couple, yet there would be plenty of space for 4 persons that the apartment sleeps . Spotlessly clean and every amenity catered for.

Small supermarket a few minutes walk away and a larger one only 10 minutes across the nearest bridge.

There are many restaurants to eat in, we ate at Abstracto on several nights, across the river. Excellent atmosphere, staff and food - do go!

You would not be disappointed by booking this apartment.

Spacious Apartment in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a lovely stay in this apartment. It is very spacious with all mod cons. It has a very central location close to all the local amenities.

There is plenty to see and do around this area, with exceptional beaches and wonderful weather.

The owner Denis was good to deal with and he has a very organised team who arranged airport transfers and met us upon arrival to show us how everything worked.

There is also a lot of information available within the apartment on things to do and where to go.

We look forward to visiting again in the near future.

Caroline, Cath & Marlene
