Just as said on the label

Great ------- everything was just as the advert / owner Lee stated ----- the accommodation is only 5 mins at a tourist pace from the town centre ----- Lee can also arrange a cheap airport transfer via a local artist who originated from Liverpool --------Tavera itself is also great with traditional streets [built after the great earthquake] good prices, traditional bars and food places etc. with no groups of drunken youths no timeshare and no local rip-off places with great traditional cataplanna dishes & similar ------- so if you want proper Portuguese this is the place to go with only 1 sports bar and 1 Irish bar [the type of bars we do not ever use] a local bus and train station ----- we will be visiting again

Lee is efficient and prompt with communication.

Tavira is a lovely town and the apartment is in a good central location with a roof terrace with great views and all day sun.

The apartment is airy , clean and very well equipped. We had a great time and would certainly like to visit again.

Further Details:

Tavira is one of the most unspoilt towns in the Algarve with the river Rio Galao running through the centre. The town retains its historic medieval past with its castle and 30 churches, winding cobbled streets, small cafes, daily market offering fresh fish and vegetables, a good choice of restaurants at reasonable prices. It boasts an outdoor amphitheatre which provides evening entertainment and concerts. The Ria Formosa natural reserve park is a world heritage site and has many rare birds enjoying a larger system of tidal lagoons which is a bird watchers paradise.


I, the home owner, can process the booking but I want to let you know the following before you decide on which payment method to make:

Owners Direct have chosen to add a "service fee" when you choose the option to "Request to Book", as opposed to simply enquiring via the "Enquire now" button, which is not displayed as obviously as the "Request to Book" button.

This "service fee" is justified by them because they claim it allows them to offer you more financial security when booking in this way.

Unfortunately, Owners Direct now leaves it to their clients (us home owners) to divulge this unfair (in my opinion) charging procedure to holidaymakers.

So effectively, if you process the booking via "Request to book", rather than via "Enquire now", wishing to pay me via bank transfer, this could cost you more.

I have been renting this villa since 2010 and been handling payments by cheque and by bank transfer without a single complaint or problem about payment security.

So, if you pay me by bank transfer rather than via Owners Direct’s “Request to Book”, it will be cheaper for you.

I feel obliged to mention this to you, since Owners Direct don't.

I'm sorry about this but you will find what owners like myself think of Owners Direct now by reading the comments on TrustPilot.

So, I suggest you use "Enquire now" rather than "Request to Book".

I'm sorry this is an inconvenience but I feel obliged to mention it to you, since Owners Direct don't.

Like other owners I will be leaving Owners Direct once my current subscription ends.

There used to be a clue in the name "Owners Direct", but since being taken over by HomeAway and then Expedia, things have changed - for the worse, in my opinion, and that of many, if not all, small owners."
