A charming little house, well appointed and easy to live in, in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time in Portugal and we just loved it. Tavira is the kind of town that you can stroll around in. It is small enough to see everything on foot and there is plenty to see; lots of history and interesting culture. The churches are very

beautiful, the castle and its garden is well worth a visit. We were there for a week and didn't get to see everything.

Our host was ver helpful with notes on where to go and recommended several excellent restaurants. The food, especially the fish was first class and very reasonably priced: two courses with wine (24-34 euro). We had a hire car, but the train station allows you to travel the coastline and stop of to explore fishing villages and beach resorts.

Our favourite place, next to Tavira is Cacela Velha, just along the coast toward Spain.

Would we return. Yes, most certainly.

A quaint little house, in the center of Tavira, very close ( less than 200 mtrs) from restaurants, bars and a wonderful bakery. The house has airconditioning, no luxury in September, and is very comfortable. We also enjoyed the walled patio that comes with 2 sunbeds. The owners were very helpful with any questions we had. Tavira has excellent restaurants. The house and town come highly recommended.

Une maisonnette accueillante au cœur de Tavira

  • 5 of 5

Notre séjour de deux semaines dans cette maisonnette en plein cœur de Tavira a été très agréable. Tout est prévu pour votre confort. Le patio, agrémenté d'un barbecue et de transats, donne une ouverture appréciable pour prendre les repas. Nous remercions chaleureusement nos hôtes pour toutes leurs attentions.

Activity and Interests

Car: not necessary


Beaches nearby. Tavira beach is a 10 minute drive to the ferry at 4 Aguas. During the summer months a 10 minute walk gets you to the ferry which docks along the river on the opposite side of Town.


With good airport links via public or private transport a car is unnecessary for the accommodation. Once in Tavira there is a local bus and train with good service. If your choice is to explore the surrounding hills then a car would be more suitable.


Travel by car from Faro Airpot is approx 35 mins. The Spanish border can be reached within 45 mins by car.
