About the property

The apartment is spacious and fully equipped. The apartment is a T1 ( 1 bedroom which sleeps 2 persons). The bedroom is separate from the kitchen and living room area.The building is serviced by a lift and parking is possible directly outside the apartment block.The apartment has a private individual roof terrace ideal for the evenings. The views are of the sea, city and countryside.The apartment is quiet and relaxing and has all mod cons to make holidays enjoyable.

There is a small city bus that links the apartment to the centre of Tavira during the week-the first goes by at 07.40 and the last bus to the centre goes by the apartments at 18.48 and costs 1 euro.- Service on Saturdays is up to 14.00 hours, no service on Sundays/Bank Holidays. Some guests hire bikes to get around and there is a bike shop in the centre of Tavira who will deliver the bike to you if you wish. The centre of Tavira is approx 2-3 kms from the apartment depending on where you are going. Tavira is compact and is divided by the river Gilao. The apartment is approx 2.5 kms from the ferry terminus.Information and prices regarding ferry times and prices are available in the information booklet in the apartment.The beaches in Tavira - the island of Tavira is accessible by Ferry from the centre of Tavira. The Gran Plaza Shopping centre is a little over 1 km.

Taxis are very reasonable and plentiful. A car as all holiday makers know offers the opportunity to explore more places and since many of the beaches around Tavira are on islands a car is an ideal way to get to Santa Luzia, Cabanes to get the boats across to the islands. A car also offers the opportunity to explore further afield Manta Rota, Praia Verde, Fabrica, Cacela Velha or for a change up into the hills to visit Cachopo.

For those who decide to come by train/bus or who decide to do without a car the owner offers guests the opportunity to do a shop on the first day.

There is an information office and a tour shop in the centre of Tavira where you can discuss your ideas for days out and book any tours you may wish to go on.

The owner is generally on hand to welcome guests and to answer any questions you may have. The apartment DOES NOT have WI-FI. When asking about availability please provide full name and phone number in order for the owner to ensure she has correct details for contact purposes. The apartment is reasonably priced and the service offered is how the owner would wish to be treated.The Owner speaks English and some Portuguese. The owner likes to receive emails as she can be clearer perhaps in her answers than on the telephone but she hopes to practice becoming more proficient in Portuguese by phone. The same is true for French- she has school French from many years ago but can reply to emails in French although on the phone it can be more difficult. So the Owner asks that you bear with her while she replies to your queries as comprehensively as she can in your language although Irish English is her first language.

Please note that if you hit the button on the photos it will show you which photo is for what and the 3rd floor apartment has a double bed. The 3rd floor apartment has an individual roof terrace with sun beds on it. The apartment has two balconies. The bathroom is laid out with a bath and a shower head, wash basin, toilet and bidet.

If you need any further information about the apartment please contact the owner.

About The Owner

I speak English and some Portuguese and hope to continue to improve my Portuguese. I need to reactivate my school French and hope to improve on it in the future.

I live in Tavira and enjoy having the apartment as I meet so many different people and enjoy lovely conversations with them.

I enjoy communicating with a potential guest pre, during and post a holiday and welcome enquiries letting me know whether they are proceeding with a booking or not. I know what it is like to send off a few enquiries and have to wait for a response in order to be able to make a decision on location and price. One thing you are guaranteed is that you will get a reply from me. I also know also what it is like to be an owner waiting for enquirers to decide whether they are coming to my apartment or not. In the height of the summer July and August it gets very busy so while I do my best to get back to people as quickly as possible I am also conscious people are perhaps considering a number of options and I hate for them to lose out on the option of staying with me if they take too much time to make a decision. I hope to continue meeting many more new guests and I welcome their comments in the guest book in all the apartments.

I would say to anyone considering booking with us "Book early to avoid disappointment".

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2009

Why The Owner chose Tavira region

Many of the guests are return guests who feel that the apartment is like "home from home". Using a car mean you have the luxury of being able to park right outside the block, pack what you need into it on a daily basis and take off wherever you may wish to go. The apartment is in a quiet location of Tavira yet within easy reach of various amenities.

What makes this apartment unique

The owner is on hand to meet and greet and to see guests off at the end of the holiday.The owner also keeps in touch with guests during their holiday. Hence the guests are not left on their own and feel comfortable from day one.

I generally reply to enquiries within a half an hour unless I am travelling hence a guest will have an immediate response from me hopefully making the choice of location easier for the guest to decide on.
