LUXURY PENTHOUSE APARTMENT A SHORT WALK FROM TAVIRA IN QUIET COMPLEX WITH POOL

Tavira Town Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, sleeps 5, roof terrace with beautiful views

Set in manicured gardens - this is a 2 bedroom penthouse apartment for those who enjoy their comforts while having a peaceful holiday. The complex is small so the large pool area never feels crowded. The apartment is beautifully furnished in a contemporary style to complement the cream marble / oak flooring, and has a roof terrace with magnificent views of Tavira town, the sea, mountains and the River Gilao. There is direct access from the apartment to the large landscaped gardens where there is a small area. The private roof terrace is equipped with garden furniture, wind-sensing awning and barbeque - the perfect place to enjoy a leisurely breakfast or evening drink watching the sunset.

Roof Terrace and Balcony: Property has twin private roof terraces with large table and chairs, sun loungers with side tables, artificial grass, plants and hedges, barbeque and wind sensing awning.

The living room has large sliding patio doors with access to central area consisting of large pool and smaller children's pool, changing rooms, decking and gardens including small children's play area. There is seating area in various parts of the gardens.

Special Interest Holidays: Boat trips can be organised, completely tailor-made to suit your own requirements - glass bottom boats to view the sea-life, barbeque on the pirate ship and view the Algarve coast from the sea, or spend a day fishing.

There is an observatory located 7km north west of Tavira-Casa De Estudo Para Astronomia (CDEPA) was set up for astronomers and for families and friends to enjoy a visit to one of the best star sites in Europe. It offers a planetarium, Night Observations, Megalithic Astronomy, Introductory courses in Astronomy and Astrophotography. The main telescope is a 20 ins F5 Newtonian and is housed in a sliding roof observatory.

Enjoy a day bird watching in the Ria Formosa nature reserve - the most important birding site in the Algarve. Covering 60km it comprises large areas of dunes and lagoons, channels and islands, salt-pans, pools and river mouths.

Why not visit one of the deserted beaches along this part of the coast?

Beaches: The nearest beach is on the Ila de Tavira which is accessed by boat. A 5 min walk from the apt is the bus station-there you can take a bus to Quatro Aguas(QA) and from there the boat to the beach. If you don’t mind walking a little further you can take a boat from the riverside in Tavira. If you have a car you can drive and there is plenty of parking at QA or you could drive to Pedras del Rei and take the toy train across to the beach at Barilla. There are plenty of restaurants at both beaches.

Review for Stay in August 2013

  • 5 of 5
We loved our 2 week stay in the apartment. The complex is clean with an excellent swimming pool and is very child friendly. It is also within close proximity of Tavira town which is a 10 minute walk away, a big plus if you decided not to hire a car.

The apartment was well equipped with all mod cons you would expect and also included beach towels and a cool box for those lovely days at the beach. The apartment also has its own roof terrace with BBQ - great for spending nights with the family.

Tavira itself is fantastic - a traditional fishing village with Moorish roots completely unspoilt from mass tourism (I should have kept this a secret really). There are great restaurants, numerous squares with coffee bars and luckily for us it was fiesta season.

All the beaches were great but we found three that we loved - Tavira accessed by ferry, Fabrica a more isolated beach accessed by water taxi or walking (low tide only) and our favourite Barril beach which used a steam train to ferry you across to the island.

Outside of Tavira I'd recommend a visit to Faro, Vilamoura and San Antonio.

I've been to the Algarve many times but this apartment and Tavira have my vote for one of the best locations - Thanks Declan looking forward to another visit soon.

An excellent apartment

  • 5 of 5
We loved our week in the apartment. It is quiet, clean and well equipped (although there was no spare toilet roll but we assumed that was just an oversight rather than the norm!). The apartment is in a nice area and in walking distance of the heart of the wonderful Tavira - although the stairs back up the hill are a bit tough on the unfit! (I wouldn't recommend you try and walk into town if you find steps difficult.

The entire process of booking the apartment was very easy and friendly. I stayed here with my parents and we would all love to visit again and would do so without hesitation.

We used a fantastic firm to drive us from the airport - Mystic Algarve. The owner, Fernando, speaks excellent English and is incredibly friendly and courteous.

All in all we loved the apartment and Tavira and would happily stay again.

Review for stay in August 2012

  • 5 of 5
We would definitely recommend this apartment. Complex is very nice and the children loved the pool. It was great to be close to Tavira for a pleasant walk and meal in the evening.

The apartment had everything we needed and some very useful extras - cool box for picnics, lots and buckets and spades. We loved the roof top area and spent a lot of time there.

The beaches in the area are great, the children loved Fabrica beach, the sea is a lot calmer than other beaches in the western algarve.

If you aren't that confident driving and don't like busy roads this is a great place, really easy to find off the motorway, and easy driving to the beaches and supermarkets.

If we go back to Tavira we would definitely book this apt again.

This is a gorgeous apartment. It is a home from home with everything you would ever need - from sky tv, to hairdryer, coffee machine, dishwasher etc. The roof terrace is a real bonus - we had a bbq twice on our trip and enjoyed eating out on the terrace. We are looking forward to returning to Tavira again in October - hopefully we will be able to stay here again!

Super Apartment, Beautiful Views, Good Location

  • 4 of 5
My Parent's in their 80's and I spent Christmas here and enjoyed a comfortable and peaceful stay.
Chose to stay here because of the location, a 5 min walk from the city centre to the bottom of the stairs and 7 minute walk from the stairs to the apartment.
The lady who was supposed to meet us had to go to Lisbon but a friend very kindly came to meet us instead and although she was half an hour late, she was extremely kind to offer to pick my parents up at the flat and drop them off at the station when we left,which was very thoughtful and helpful,considering she was helping a friend not an employee.Deserved a tip.
The flat is very comfortable, has everything you need except blankets. Being Portuguese we expected to be watching Portuguese TV but there was only Sky tv which fortunately for us we can all speak English... otherwise would have been a disappointment....
Not much happens in the city at this time of year so I would recommend a car. Especially If you need to go shopping you will be limited what you can get in the centre of town whereas to go to the shopping centre is a 15 min drive..... alternatively a cab ...
Also if you are going to the beach you could walk for 40 minutes but so many other nice beaches to see, a car is preferable.

Stayed in a similar 5 star Duplex in a Hotel in Portimao, more comfortable, better and nicer linen and a maid would come in daily to do the bedding and for the same price breakfast was included but in Tavira that option was not available.As my Mum is from Tavira this is where we wanted to be Otherwise I would have stayed in the same Duplex as last year.

We could not work out how the heating worked.....so the rooms were a little cold....but was comfortable enough once we set the temp to 30 degrees.... seemed to help...

Would recommend the flat which is very private

Fabulous apartment in an excellent location

  • 5 of 5
If it is luxury and a relaxing holiday that you are looking for, this apartment and Tavira are the perfect match. While the town is a quaint, quiet fishing resort, the apartment is fantastic. We stayed in September/October 2010 & with 3 children, myself & wife, I am always a bit apprehensive about renting self-catering accomodation! This apartment exceeded our expectations. It is very tastefully decorated, to a very high spec, is spacious (even for 5 of us) and has all the mod cons. It is locate din a very secure complex with well maintained gardens and swimming pool.
We were delighted with the apartment - it is very well maintained, looked brand new and very clean, with towels, beach towels, cleaning materials & washing machine, dishwasher, oven, microwave, etc. The rooftop terrace affors a lovely outdoor living space, complete with B~B~Q. We dined outside numerous times and loved the al~fresco choice. Weather was lovely too, so that helps. I can highly recommend this highquality accomodation.
The owners were extremely easy to deal with & very helpful, even providing a folder full of relevant information which we found very useful & time-saving.
We will definitely be returning to Tavira again and based on our experiences, we wouldn´t stay in any other apartment. It is that good!

Tavira town has many restaurants, cafes and bars, catering for all tastes and budgets. The nightlife is good without being too noisy. There is a daily market selling fresh fruit, vegetables, meat and fish, and there are several supermarkets in the town including Lidl and Aldi. The newly opened Gran Plaza shopping centre has many shops and restaurants and is in the centre of Tavira. There is a mini train which gives a tour of the town and can help to get your bearings - it departs from the riverside near the Roman bridge. To get a 360 degree view of Tavira you should 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. Some of the buildings in Tavira are extremely old and date back to the Moorish times.

Golf: The Eastern Algarve is a golfers paradise, with 7 world class courses within a 20km radius of the apartment;

Benamor 4km away (5494m par 71) ranked in the top 10 courses in Europe with great sea views.

Quinta de Ria, 7km away (6110m par 72), is an 18 hole golf course in the Ria Formosa natural park-it has been described by golfers as the most breathtaking in the region.

Quinta de Cima, 7km away (6256m par 72 ), opened in 2002; the greens are tricky and well protected by large bunkers. Voted best course on the Algarve in 2004.

Monte rei North (6567m par 72), designed by Jack Nicklaus, opened in 2007. A round of golf here includes green fee, shared golf buggy and bottled water.

Quinta do Vale (6511m par 72) designed by Seve Ballasteros-it sits in a natural valley overlooking the Guadiana river. Seve's promise was to create a course to please everyone no matter what their handicap.
