Lovely modern, spacious apartment in Tavira

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased when we arrived at the apartment as it was just as described. Modern, spacious, well equipped with a lovely pool. The location was perfect for walking into Tavira which itself is a wonderful old town with lots of bars and great restaurants. It was also close enough to walk to the ferry which takes you to Tavira Island which is a beautiful beach. We loved everything about our stay and would love to go back. The owners were very helpful and the whole booking process was brilliant from start to finish. Thanks Sue 😊

A Perfect Holiday!!

  • 5 of 5

Well what can I say, we had the most perfect of holidays, thanks to your lovely apartment. I'm so pleased we found it on the Owners Direct Website.

As I say, your apartment is just lovely and has everything you could wish for. We had such hot weather when we arrived so the pool and aircon was such a blessing!! The pretty gardens and pool are so well maintained and the complex is quiet, so we couldn't have wished for more. Also a perfect location, just a 10 minute walk from the lovely restaurants, cafes and bars that Tavira offer. A perfect setting. Thank you so much, we will definitely be back and will be recommending to family and friends.

Great for Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

I just want to say thanks for a great holiday in Tavira. The apartment was first class, everything you could wish for, comfortable and in a good location just minutes from the heart of the charming town centre. The weather was mild all the time and positively warm for the last four days. We even laid on the beach and watched a couple of youngsters brave the water. The carnival in Loule was tremendous fun too. We would definitely recommend this property to friends and family.

Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely stay at this fantastic apartment. From the first email the owners Harry and Sue were very attentive. The apartment is great and we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the high standard of decoration and furnishings, there was even a welcome food pack. The kitchen is very well equipped as is the rest of the apartment including the beach parasol and chairs. The pool area is well maintained as are the gardens and the managing agent was helpful and friendly. The location is very quiet and easy to find. It is a very pleasant 10 minute walk to the center of town (there are some steep stairs to navigate which wasn't a problem for us). Tavira itself is a very pretty little town with plenty of lovely restaurants to dine the night away and doesn't feel too touristy. If you are going to the Algarve you will certainly be heading for the beach and there are plenty to choose from nearby. We will definitely be going back!

Location

Activity and Interests

Special interest holidays:

Roman/Moorish History & Architecture, Golf, Ria Formosa Nature Reserve, Bird

watching, Family holidays, Outside live music festivals.

Coast/Beach:

Beaches in the Eastern Algarve are long & golden with clear, warm water. Isla de Tavira offers beach cafes, bars, restaurants, long walks & sports activities. This 4km stretch of coast remains unspoilt and peaceful. The island can be reached by a short ferry crossing from Tavira town, ferry taxi from Quatro Aguas or miniature train from Santa Luzia to the beach at Praia do Barril. There are also many other clean, sandy beaches along the 24km coast towards the Spanish border or Faro to the west.

Travel:

Faro airport is approximately 39km/35mins drive away. Airport transfers can be arranged. Car hire is available at the airport or can be pre booked online for very competitive rates. A rail link from Faro to Tavira operates approximately every 2-3 hours and typically takes 30min.

Distances:

From the apartment Tavira town is a 5-8 minute walk via steps set into the hillside and along the banks of the River Gilão. The Spanish border is approximately 20 minutes drive to the east along the N125 or the A22 motorway. Faro, Albufeira and Vilamoura are less than 30 minutes drive to the west. There are several unspoilt villages within 10 minutes drive.

Further Details:

Tavira town is a working fishing port and is regarded as the most beautiful and characteristic town on the Eastern Algarve known as "Little Venice" or the "Gem of the Eastern Algarve". Tavira’s history stems back to Roman and Moorish times, with its narrow cobbled streets and Roman bridge spanning the River Gilão. Exploring Tavira is a pleasure, either by foot, horse drawn carriage or the miniature train. A visit to Tavira Island and its beaches is a must.

A plethora of riverside bars, cafés and restaurants specialising in locally caught seafood and traditional Portuguese dishes await your discovery, as does the romantic square, where during the summer months a variety of open air music festivals can be enjoyed.

There is a daily market selling delicious local produce, fresh fruit, vegetables, meat and fish. Alternatively there are several well known supermarkets in the town. A chemist, post office, tourist office, bus/train station, newsagent, ferry point, banks and cash points are all within easy reach. For a 360 degree view of Tavira the camera obscura located within the disused water tower in the centre of the town is well worth a visit. Further afield the nearby unspoilt fishing villages of Santa Luzia, Fuzeta, Cacela Velha and Cabanas are only 5-10 min drive and are also worth exploring. The Ria Formosa Nature Reserve is an ornithologists’ dream where flamingos are regular visitors. The Eastern Algarve boasts long white sandy beaches many of which hold the prestigious blue flag.
