Clean, comfortable and very convenient. Great decor and roof terrace.

  • 4 of 5

Really gorgeous house and so good to be able to just potter around the town, go to the market and get fresh fish, meat and vegetables. We were there for the Good Friday celebrations with candle lit processions and lavender strewn in the streets. The view from the terrace is really lovely and peaceful.

Lovely cottage in ideal location

  • 4 of 5

Well appointed with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Sun on roof terrace all day which may be a bit too warm in summer months. Five minute walk into town where we found numerous places to eat at varying prices. Great food market with locally caught fish if catering at home. Lots to do with easy access to beach via boat or a drive into walking country in the hills. Can imagine Tavira itself would be extremely busy during high season.

Overall very clean spacious with a wonderful roof terrace

  • 5 of 5

A lovely town in the Eastern Algarve still retaining its Portuguese roots. Very well placed to visit Spain on day trips either by car or ferry.

Fantastic accomodation

  • 5 of 5

This property is fantastic, we stayed for 2 weeks. The cottage is very well set out and a lot if thought has gone in the decoration. The icing on the cake is the roof top terrace it is brilliant with magnificent views over Tavira. The customer service was very good, it was clean and well maintained. I would recommend it to anyone. Tavira is beautiful with many really good restaurants and bars. Our favourites were Tavira Lounge and Youngs! We will return as we had such a fabulous time! Thank you.

Stay in Tavira

  • 5 of 5

The house is situated down a cobbled street approx 200 Mtrs away from the Pousada in one direction, 200 Mtrs away from the bus station in another and 200 Mtrs away from the river, bars and restaurants in another so ideally placed for visitors. The house itself is in good condition with the rebuild programme having been very well thought through....simple things taken into consideration like electric sockets near mirrors etc. Whilst the property is one bedroomed the internal layout makes it feel bigger than it really is. All the accommodation is on the ground floor with the upstairs being an open top balcony complete with sun beds, table and chairs along with a BBQ. As a lovers of sunshine we spent many hours up here through being able to sit in the sun from sunrise to sunset......probably the best balcony in Tavira.
