About the property

Apartment in Tavira, Eastern Algarve, Portugal - Luxury Penthouse Apartment With Fantastic Sea And Hillside Views From Your Own Private Roof Terrace

Set in beautifully maintained gardens our end of terrace penthouse apartment is situated within the tallest block of this small and private complex, therefore, the roof terrace is not overlooked by any other property on this development. It consists of a spacious lounge with dining area, next to a very modern and well equipped kitchen. There are 2 spacious bedrooms; one en suite and one further bathroom which are all on the same floor. A marble staircase leads up to our extensive roof terrace which is part tiled and part imitation grass and has far reaching views over the ocean and mountains. Our roof terrace is equipped with garden furniture, wind-sensing awning and barbecue, the perfect place for you to enjoy a leisurely meal and drink watching the sunrise and the sunset.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The apartment was just perfect. It was lovely for the children to be able to swim in the pool and for us to be able to watch them from balcony and the roof terrace was magical in the evenings for barbeques. It was spotlessly clean and very well appointed,we were able to walk into town very easily and enjoyed strolling in, in the evenings. We would definitely recommend it to anyone else! Sarah Cox July 2011.

We had an excellent time, just what was needed, and once again i think we were lucky to get your apartment. My girls are even more enthusiastic about possibly buying a place there, or at least getting out more often.Once again, many thanks, Michael Walton July 2013

We had a fabulous time in Tavira as always, I'm sure we will be in touch for next year. Emily August 2013

Perfect Holiday

  • 5 of 5

The Apartment was really well equipped and very clean and spacious. It certainly lived up to the "luxury " claim. It was extremely quiet in the Apartment we never tired of the wonderful views from the roof terrace. The pool is fantastic and just the right size. Our 11yr old grandson was in the pool every day and the poolside areas are great with plenty of space and no fighting for sunbeds ! Tavira has a great atmosphere and although there are 120 steps climbing back to the complex we needed the exercise after all the lovely food we ate each night. All in all a great holiday.

lovely apartment- 'home from home'

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely apartment, clean, very comfortable and very well equipped. It felt like we were in a detatched building- no noise from next door, & because there is a roof terrace, no noise from above ! The roof terrace is a delight, totally private with super sun beds and a bbq which we used on a couple of evenings. I would recommend this property to anyone, although you should bear in mind there are a lot of steps going down to the town, which means of course, they have to be climbed coming back. We did use a taxi a couple of times when we went to the supermarket ! There are loads of places to eat in Tavira, and the square is lovely to sit around in the evenings having a Sangria & just people watching ! We would definitely go back to Terracos de Tavira & Tavira town.

Excellent apartment in a great town

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very clean, well equipped and in a good location. The walk to and from town is very pleasant but does involve a lot of steps. The roof terrace was very spacious and a real bonus. The booking process and "meet and greet" we're very straightforward. We would highly recommend the apartment.

Tavira revisited

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to apartment.Contact with owner excellent, very prompt replies to any enquiries. Lovely spacious apartment all mod cons and everything we required for our stay. Contact in Tavira very helpful and on hand for any extras we required .Apt in great location for Central Tavira....approx 10 min stroll to a great choice of restaurants and bars. Tavira is very quaint,restaurants are of a high standard ,particularly A Taska which is a small family run restaurant just off the old square. Aquasul also highly recommended ! O Castelo at the top of hill towards the station and O Patio (next to Aquasul) Excellent beaches at Tavira ,Cabanas ,Burrill and Fuseta.

Would recommend hiring a car to see more of the beautiful eastern Algarve and would highly recommend apartment.

Excelent place for Tavira holidays

  • 5 of 5

This penthouse apartment is very well located for holidays in Tavira. The location is good but you might need a transportation to go to the center. There is a way to walk, but it seemed to me with a lot of steps, so I didn't try it. After the steps the distance is short.

The swimming pool has a good size and one side is for children. The areas around the pool are well taken care off and pleasant to lay around.

The apartment itself has everything and it is very well maintained. The cutlery is good, the kitchen knives are good, nothing is missing when sitting at the able.

The refrigerator and freezer are very good as well as the other appliances.

The furniture of the apartment is good and with good taste, you feel comfortable. The electric shades for the windows are very conveniente as well as the awning at the bedrooms windows. The electric awning at the terrace is a most and the breakfast there with a view to the sea is something very relaxing. Lunch and dinner are also very good choices to be taken upstairs.

During our stay the weather was really hot and connecting the air conditioning when arriving home in the afternoon, was really a pleasure, and it was working very well. The small critic we make is for the television! There were no portuguese channels, but you have english and other international ones.

Everything that is mentioned in the description of the apartment is there, it is very accurate.

When we arrived, we were disappointed because it was no internet available, but it turned out to be a blessing, we could really relax. At the end of the holidays the world was still going around, so nothing was missed.

We really recommend this apartment, it is very good value.

The wetlands of the Ria Formosa are a paradise for nature lovers. Tavira Island offers beach cafes, bars, restaurants, long walks and sporting activities. This 4km stretch of white sand remains unspoilt and peaceful. It can be accessed by short ferry crossing from Tavira centre, ferry taxi from Quatro Aguas or miniature railway from Santa Luzia. There are numerous other beaches (5 with prestigious blue flag) to visit in the 24km coastal stretch between Tavira and Monte Gordo.


Faro is the nearest airport. There is a wide range of car hire available at very competitive rates. Visitors arriving from Faro airport have an easy 30 min motorway drive to the property. Other options include train, bus and taxi. Private transfers are available through our local agent by prior arrangement (at extra cost). On the motorway Seville is less than 2 hours by car and Lisbon 3 hours. Car hire is recommended but not essential.


From the apartment you can walk to the Centre of Tavira in 5 mins along the river Gilao. There are several small fishing villages close to Tavira town - about a ten minute drive away is the lovely village of Santa Lucia-it is the centre of the octopus fishing industry as seen by the heaps of earthenware pots on the quayside. There are numerous fish restaurants where you can choose from the days catch. The Spanish border is only 20-25 mins drive to the East from the property.

Further Details:

Tavira town has many shops, banks, restaurants and bars to choose from and there is a daily market selling fresh fruit, vegetables, meat and fish. There are several supermarkets in the town including Lidl and Aldi. The numerous restaurants cater for all tastes and budgets. There is a mini train or horse-drawn carriage which provide tours of the town and can help you get your bearings - they depart from the riverside near the Roman bridge. To get a 360 degree view of Tavira you can visit the camera obscura which is located in a disused water tower in the centre of the town-not to be missed it gives a real time view of the town.

For those interested in history there is plenty to keep you busy with a walking tour of the town to see the Roman bridge, the castle and the numerous churches.

If you have children with you a visit to a water park is a must and there are several to choose from- Aqua Show, The Big One, Slide and Splash are a few examples, they are all accessed very easily via the A22 in about 30-45mins, it is also possible to take a day trip coach there from Tavira. The Zoo Marine is also worth a visit with dolphin and seal shows as well as water rides and 3 swimming pools to cool off.

Further afield going towards Spain you can visit Vila Real San Antonio, this is a thriving town with an architecturally impressive pedestrian centre laid out like Lisbon's Baixa district. From here you can take boat trips up the Guadiana River. It is the 2nd longest river in Europe at 778km.

The Spanish town of Ayamonte is only 10km away, it can be reached by ferry from Vila Real or via a bridge from Portugal. It has a wonderfully Spanish feel to it and there is a lovely old medieval quarter with narrow streets and cobbled plazas lined with trees, restaurants and bars. When you have finished shopping in the wonderful array of shops relax with a glass of wine and some tapas. Five mins drive from town is the Isla Canela beach popular with wind and kite surfers.
