Nice refurbished studio, most enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed for 10 days in Luis apartment and had a lovely time.

Apartment was well equipped, plus benefit of a balcony with French style doors so that you could open both and even if you didn't sit on the balcony, it was the next best thing.

Fairly large for a studio with comfortable bed and decent size bathroom.

Addition of air-conditioning also a plus because it was very warm for our first few days.

Tavira gardens are very nice, with a lovely big pool area and no bun fight for sunbeds, plenty available.

Location is a bit outside the centre of Tavira, but cab price of 5 euros reasonable.

Sometimes you have to build this into your budget and in most cases it is cheaper and quieter to stay outside a town centre and add the cab cost.

Tavira is a lovely town, and prices are much cheaper than most of the West side of the Algarve.

To summarise, we would be happy to stay again, and no hesitation to recommend.

Luis is always ready to help, and responds quickly., so thanks again Luis.

Comfortable apartment within easy reach of Tavira centre

  • 4 of 5

We have enjoyed our stay at Tavira Garden. There are 2 supermarkets within 15 minute walk. It was a 30 minute leisurely walk into the centre of town. Tavira is an interesting town to explore with a short ferry ride to the nearest beach. The local train goes from Porta Nova station (15 mins walk from apartment) which gives access to towns like Olhao an Faro. We especially enjoyed Olhao and getting the ferry across to the island of Armona.

The apartment is very beatiful and quiet! It is very clean.

The owner was very nice with us. He gave us lots of inrformation about Tavira.

The apartment is ideal for couples.

We recommend that apartment for people!

Fueron unas vacaciones perfectas! Luis nos acogió de forma excelente y nos proporcionó mucha información de la zona(playas, lugares para comer y visitar...).

El apartamento es ideal para una pareja ya que cuenta con todo lo necesario para sentirse bien y cómodo. Está muy cuidado y muy bien decorado, es muy acogedor. Para nosotros lo mejor del apartamento fué la terraza porqué está a la sombra y se puede descansar y comer tranquilamente.

El apartamento se encuentra en el complejo Tavira Garden y cuenta con una piscina, bar y recepción.

Recomendamos absolutamente este apartamento porqué quedamos muy contentos y esperamos volver pronto!

The perfect Algarve retreat

  • 5 of 5

My partner and i had a fabulous stay at Luis's apartment in Tavira Gardens. Everything was exactly as described, the apartment was spotlessly clean and the complex and facilities were great. Luis was exceptionally helpful, recommending some great places to eat and visit and rushing out to buy a kitchen knife when we asked him to! Tavira is also the perfect place to stay on the Algarve. It's a lovely town with beautiful cobbled streets and a great atmosphere. It's also within easy reach of other attractions in the Algarve and a day trip to Seville or Cadiz in Spain is also doable. Thanks Luis, highly recommended!

Tavira is one of the architecturally most attractive towns in the Algarve. Its origin dates back around 2.000 BC, and during the Moorish occupation the fishing industry of this town was of great importance. In the 17th Century its port, located at the Gilhão River, played a significant role shipping wine, salt and dried fish. After the earthquake in 1755 the town has been completely rebuilt with many fine 18th Century buildings and 37 churches. The church of Santa Maria do Castelo has been erected on the site of a Mosque. It contains the tombs of Dom Paio Peres Correia and his seven knights, who took the city from the Moors after his knights were killed.

The surrounding of Tavira is still very rural but slowly changing due to the demands of the tourist industry and three golf courses opened recently nearby. The beach can only be reached by a ferryboat that takes the visitor to the sandy island of Ilha de Tavira, has been named one of the Top 10 beaches IN THE WORLD by 'The Lonely Planet'. Lots of other huge clean sandy beaches are within easy reach. Tavira Beaches are, Ilha de Tavira, Praia do Barril (part of this beach is official Naturism Beach), Praia da Terra Estreita and Praia de Cabanas, all the beaches are in the Ria Formosa Natural Park, a Portuguese Heritage. Some of these are only accessible by boat and therefore are less crowded and much more relaxing.

The Algarve is known as one of the prime locations with a multitude of golf courses evidencing its popularity. With average temperatures during the winter between 15ºC and 20ºC.

Tavira Garden is near three golf courses, the nearest one 3.5 km and the others 7 km. Many golfers are discovering the courses to the East. With their availability of tee-off times and less crowded fairways the courses will satisfy even the most discerning golfer.

Discover the splendid and fresh sea food from the Ria Formosa and Sea among the several restaurants in Tavira, Santa Luzia and Cabanas.
