Tavira is an ideal place to stay and to use as a base to explore the East Algarve area. Quinta do Morgado is just 35 minutes’ drive from Faro airport, and 25 minutes’ drive to the Spanish border.

The condominium is set within beautiful landscaped gardens with many sub-tropical plants and old olive trees. The grounds are cleaned and tended daily with security patrol at night.


Tavira is one of the most charming & unspoilt towns on the Algarvian coast. It has so many different aspects to offer, sightseeing in both Portugal and Spain with towns steeped in history, all set in spectacular scenery. An endless choice of activities includes golf, fishing, horse riding, sailing, windsurfing, scuba diving, cycling etc. Many of the blue flag beaches are minutes from the villa. There are many quality golf courses to choose from, the nearest is the prestigious 18 hole Benamor golf, 5 minutes’ drive from the house.

Tavira town is unspoilt, with cobblestone streets and many restaurants, shops bars and terraces straddling the Gilão river, it is regarded as the Algarve’s prettiest town, and exudes an authentic Portuguese charm. Big hotels are few, churches are many, fishing boats crowd the river and everyone has time to dawdle. Our house is approximately 10-15 minutes walk into the old town centre.

The ‘Gran Plaza’ is a modern covered shopping precinct just 5 minutes walk from our house. There are numerous quality contemporary shops and stores, a large ‘Continente’ supermarket, good selection of eating facilities and a cinema. All with free covered parking and climate controlled internal environment.

Tavira beach is 12 km long and forms part of the Ria Formosa National Park. It is located on Tavira Island and is accessed by a short, and regular river ferry ride.


Most people collect a hire-car at Faro airport; driving is safe and car hire is good value.

Alternatively it is easy and cheap to get around using local transport. A taxi from the Airport to Tavira will cost approximately 60 euros. Taxis around Tavira are safe, clean, numerous and good value.

A local bus takes a circular route around Tavira town and its outskirt throughout the day; the bus stop is close to the entrance of the condominium, on the opposite side of the roundabout. Additionally buses also stop outside the condominium that travel daily along the coast in both directions.

A good train service runs throughout the day along the Algarve coast, allowing you to explore many more places of interest further along the coast at a reasonable cost.



We request that guests respect our home. We understand that accidents happen and we would hope that any breakages are reported to us to enable us to provide a complete facility for the next guests.

Towels within the accommodation must not be used at the beach or around the pool. Beach/pool towels can be purchased locally at reasonable price.

We request that no smoking takes place inside the house.

What makes this house unique

We have been visiting Portugal for a number of years, usually staying in Lagos, Western Algarve. However, our friends who also have been a regular visitor to Portugal for over fifteen years told us about Tavira, Eastern Algarve. We were invited to stay with them in their beautiful home, Nov 2013, and we instantly fell in love with the area. Tavira and its surrounding area have a lot of charm and is away from the hustle and bustle of busier towns. Everyone is friendly and you are greeted with a warm 'Bom dia/boa tard/boa noite.

We found the property to be very clean and have every facility we wanted. The owner had made it clear that there are central stairs in the house (we counted 5 split-floor levels). However we liked this as there were plenty of areas for the family to relax without getting in each other’s way. The condominium has a very friendly and safe atmosphere. It was away from the main road and very quiet. The on-site pools were not crowded and were cleaned every day. The supermarket at the entrance to the condominium is excellent, all food is fresh and very reasonably priced, bread is baked there daily. We had a hire car so it was easy to get around the local area. However we walked into town most days (about 20 minutes) and occasionally we caught a taxi back. The main local beaches are fantastic, we loved the ‘Isla Tavira’ and the fact that you have to take a water taxi was definitely part of the enjoyment. We also hired bikes whilst we were there and found some easy off-road and flat routes to cycle; once to Cabanas (the next town along the coast) and another time to a local, smaller but clean beach. It was the first time we had been to Tavira and we loved the mixture of the old town and modern facilities. Everything seems very relaxed, the local people are very friendly and it was easy to get about. We liked that fact that Tavira is the working capital of the region and it was enjoyable to be mixing in with the local community. We visited a couple of very friendly and reasonable restaurants in the town, however we also tried the on-site restaurant which was also excellent and seemed very popular with the locals. The link regarding ‘Tavira and Locality’ on the owner’s website (at the end, after ‘Facilities’) is actually the ‘Tavira Algarve Tourist Guide’ and is very useful; we referred to it for local information and timetables whilst we were there. We will certainly think about returning soon and would definitely recommend it.

My Response

Many thanks for your kind comments Tom we are so pleased that you and your family enjoyed our home and especially Tavira.

There were 4 of us, all adults. Initially I looked at other holiday rentals and narrowed my search to just 4, in the end I chose this beautiful townhouse. From the outset the booking process went well, Genettee, the owner, was very helpful and very efficient, kept in touch with me throughout it all.

The townhouse is located in the beautiful complex called Quinta Do Morgado, just outside Tavira, we hired a car and spent a wonderful 6 days in the Algarve. The townhouse was just perfect, it was spacious as could accommodate six people and there were just the 4 of us. It was clean, nicely furnished and it had everything we needed.The cleaners came in everyday to empty the bins and did some general cleaning. I loved the roof terrace, many a times I would leave the others to whatever they were doing and go up there to soak in the peace and take in the view. The doors of the bathrooms did not have any locks, not sure why, nevertheless I absolutely loved the townhouse. The complex had two adults swimming pools, which were made good use of by us, we rented the tennis court for one hour for 10 euros (booked at reception). We wanted to play tennis on other days, but there were no availability when we needed it. The gardens were well maintained and looked beautiful. The supermarket at the entrance to the complex was a lifesaver, we did quite a bit of shopping there and enjoyed freshly baked bread every morning.

Tavira is a beautiful town, quite peaceful when we visited( end of September) with its cobbled streets and lovely roman bridge.

Everything was just perfect, would I return to the townhouse.... without any doubt, would I recommend it to others....... wholeheartedly, all praises to the owner.

Lots of space!

This is a very nice BnB which is part of a large condo property which is nicely planted with flowers and shrubs. The apartment has lots of room, is on three floors (AND there's a roof deck) so great for privacy. It has a place to sit out and eat on the first and the second floors as well. It's very nicely furnished, and the condo has an excellent, if cold, swimming pool, We really enjoyed our stay there.

Would highly recommend the apartment and the location.

  • 5 of 5

The house had everything required including the daily cleaners, (who rapped Eileen's knuckles for making the bed). The balcony from the main bedroom was excellent for relaxing in the sun and for having dinner with the desired bottle of wine. The housing area was lovely for a walk and swim when desired. At the time we visited in May you could hear a pin drop it was so quiet. There is a mini-market close on hand and a large shopping centre within walking distance. We hired a car which gave us easy access to Tavira which is a lovely historical place to visit. There are numerous lovely beaches and access to Spain within easy reach traveling east by car on the 125. When seeking advice the reception staff were more than helpful. I have already recommended this community to several people and will have no hesitation on returning.

Nearest Beach
3 Kilometres
Beautiful Isla Tavira is approx 3km away.
Car: not necessary


For those visitors who are unaware, the difference between the Algarve in high-season and out-of high-season is considerable; Tavira is no exception.

In the high-season, the town and locality is buzzing with family holiday-makers enjoying all the facilities that the area provides.

Out-of high-season, a quiet and laid-back mood descends on the town. The vast majority of tourists have left. Those tourists that do remain are there to enjoy the quiet atmosphere.

The weather remains reasonably sunny and warm throughout the year and attracts northern Europeans escaping the harsh winter months.

With its historic architecture, varied wildlife, vast beaches and friendly locals, the area takes on a very different ambience and makes an ideal base to relax and explore at leisure.
