Martin Ebbs purchased this apartment in 2004
I have always been enchanted by the people, tradition and culture of Portugal. I first visited Tavira in 2004 and discovered a hidden treasure - an unspoilt, historic old town full of interesting places, next to fantastic beaches. During my visit, I came across this old but beautifully ornate building in an empty and derelict state and thought, what a waste. Someone needed to restore this to its full glory and bring it back into full regular use. So that became my mission and after dealing with complex bureaucracy and building issues for the next few years I finally brought this concept to reality, making it into two spacious and stylish properties and it is now available for others to enjoy.
The property is situated right in the centre of the old town about one minute from the river. The apartments are stylishly decorated and furnished, well equipped, spacious and very comfortable. The upper apartment has two terraces and a separate balcony. Everything you need - groceries, shops, restaurants, bars, the beach ferry and evening entertainment is available within 5 minute's walk. It is easy to get to, being only 30 minutes from Faro airport, and with motorway and rail connections. Spain can be reached within 20 minutes. The nearest beach at Ilha da Tavira can be accessed by boat directly from the town centre, taking about 10 minutes. Five other beaches can be reached in 10-20 minutes by car. All beaches are wide with beautiful golden sand and stretch for long distances.
Lovely two bed apartment in a great location for discovering Tavira and also getting the ferry to the beach. Tavira is a lovely town with lots of character. The apartment was tasefully refurbished with plenty of space. The bedrooms are very large and the communal space works well. The apartment was well stocked with all mod cons and the owner has thought of everything to make your stay comfortable. The apartment is very near the supermarket, coffee shops and restaurants. The only downside to this apartment is that it is on street level so it doesn't have an outdoor eating area which we really missed. The apartment is quite dark so on a morning or evening you felt you were missing the lovely sun.
