Taxis are readily available from airport & in Cabanas/Tavira, typical transfer costs are 35-40.00 euros each way. We have recommendations for pre-booking please just let us know.

Local tips!: Eating out in Cabanas is great with all eateries no more than a few minutes walk away. Prices are good and quality fine with many local fresh fish dishes excellent. Expect to pay on average 10-18 euros per head for a great meal. Recommendations:

1) Mariscos & Pesticos, next to the fish market marina end or Jeonimo's just past the Sports Bar by the ferries to the beach, both great fish and local dishes.

2) Atlanis for great pizza/pasta restaurant mid way along the boardwalk, kids love it.

3) Try the Jolly Sailor in the Quinta Velha apartments just up the road from the apartment, the prawn curry is historic.

4) Escalo's on the corner bottom of apartments, the local special is great value

5) CRC club next door to fish market on the promenade (1st floor) the fish & chips are great!

Wine is very quaffable, pay 7-15 euros in restaurants and even cheaper in supermarkets. Try the 'borba' red or 'planalto' white. Beer costs no more than 1.50 - 2 euros a glass, kids drinks around 1 euro a 'pop

We use the apartment regularly during the year so it's important for us to ensure the accommodation is comfortable and relaxing. There is more than enough quality furnishing, fixtures and fittings for easy living. You can chose to dine in or out, either way you are bound to enjoy yourselves. We have also built up a store of beach umbrellas, cool bags & the like so life can be made easy when heading out to the beach. The air conditioning units can also double up as heaters in winter/spring, all we ask is please switch off when you are out of the apartment. There are electric security blinds in all rooms which help keep them cool during the summer months. For wifi access pop down to Eschalo's restaurant/bar and ask Carlos for the password!

All the family enjoyed their stay

  • 4 of 5

It was just what I was looking for. Not too expensive, just big enough for the five of us to have a comfortable week.

We walked every day to the boat to go to the lovely Cabanas beach.

Had most of our meals at home. The kitchen had every thing we needed. For those more lazy days there are very nice restaurants in Cabanas, all in walking distance.

The swimming pool area is nice. The kids enjoyed playing in the pool.

Both the owner and the manager are really nice friendly people making me feel at home.

Property was home from home and location perfect

  • 5 of 5

The property was clean, well maintained, well stocked with plenty of utensils, furniture,linen and information to guide you around the area.

The manager provided loads of local information, and was at the end of a phone with help if required.

Amazing selection of local restaurants, but the Jolly Sailor is definitely worth a visit, and is only 2 minutes walk from the apartment

The beach at Cabanas is well worth the 75 cents per person each way on the boat taxis, it is beautiful

Friends are already looking at booking this fantastic apartment !!

Holiday Dream

This was our second year at this apartment. Just that in itself should say alot! All your basic needs are met. Close enough to the waterfront, restaurants, bakery and supermarkets.!Both the owner and caretaker are hospitable and always willing to help you with anything you may need. I definitely recommend this apartment if you are looking for a home away from home

Great apartment and very helpful owner and manager

  • 4 of 5

This apartment has good facilities and its location in Cabanas is perfect. The aircon was just excellent to have in the apartment when the temperature outside was around 35 degrees. The owner and the manager were really kind and helpful and gave us a lot of suggestions of good restaurants in the town. We spent our 10 days in Cabanas with lots of sunbathing in the Atlantic and we also visited a lot of excellent restaurants.

It won’t be the last time we go to Cabanas but next time we will probably rent a car so that we can explore more of Algarve. With a car it is also easier to go shopping in the nearby city of Tavira where there is a Lidl store which makes it cheaper for our family of 5 persons. The food stores in Cabanas are quite expensive and don’t have a large selection of food. For shorter stays a car is not necessary as the train station is located not far away from the apartment.

Cabanas is just 5 kms from Tavira, easily found off the N125 heading towards Spain. Cabanas is a typical Algarve fishing village with many lovely local restaurants and bars. The blue flag beach is a 3 minute walk from the apartment and is part of the Ria Formosa Nature Park.

There are restaurants, bars, WCs, showers, sun loungers & shades that are all available in season.

Other Activities: 6 golf courses close to apartment

Golf: There are 6 great courses all close to the apartment as follows:

2) Quinta d'Ria & Cima (2 x 18 holes), have held EPGA seniors & ladies events on Cima & both have testing holes and great lay outs. d'Ria has a few stunning holes close to the sea with great views, course is always in good condition. Internet rates from 55 - 75 euros, both less than 10 mins from apartment.

3) Monte Rei, designed by Jack Nicklaus, great scenery & condition. Shop around for best rates as can be pricey, late afternoon rounds can be found at less than 100 euros. 15 mins from apartment.

4) Castro Marim, mature 18 hole course built across valleys/hills, tight & testing. Best rates around 40-45 euros, 25 mins from apartment.
