Casa Juana has been restored sympathetically and retains its original character while providing comfortable and spacious accommodation. The apartment below is totally separate and occupied by an elderly Portuguese man. It provides accommodation for 4 people and comprises of one bedroom with ensuite shower room and double bed, one master bedroom with twin beds, a main bathroom with a washing machine, a spacious sitting room and a large well equipped kitchen/diner leading out to a small patio with table and chairs and succulent plants.
The house is a 10 minute walk from the town centre: Here fine restaurants can be found either side of the River Gilao. A Roman bridge spans the river which flows through the town centre past palm-shaded waterfront gardens. The old market building, now an exhibition centre with cafes and shops is situated here also. The railway station another 10 min walk from the house, will enable you to travel the length of the Algarve and North to Lisbon.
The town is separated from the sea : The Island of Tavira, reached by a short ferry ride from the quay, is 11 km of white sand beaches. The Island has several bars and restaurants for your refreshment
Tavira is one of the oldest towns on the Algarve.: With its narrow cobbled streets, a hilltop castle and 25 churches this settlement goes back to Roman times.
We fell in love with Tavira in 1991 and purchased and renovated Casa Juana between 1993 and 1995 keeping its traditional town house appearance while adding some modern facilities.
Paul Craig purchased this apartment in 1993
This is a Portuguese experience. Staying in a typical town house surrounded by Portuguese neighbours. We want you to enjoy your time in Tavira without modern hi tech facilities that distract us from a real Portuguese experience. Hence no WiFi or satellite TV!
All self catering facilities for the perfect holiday base to explore the Algarve.
