LOCAL BEACH ILHA DE TAVIRA: TAVIRA ISLAND: The Algarve is famous for its wonderful sandy beaches and the beach of Tavira Island is no exception. As a naturally formed island separated from the mainland by the River Formosa, it is reached by catching a small and inexpensive water ferry from a designated point in the small harbour. A good range of facilities is offered including restaurants, bars, sun beds for hire and a wonderful holiday atmosphere amongst golden sands and the rolling Atlantic Ocean. There are a number of other beaches in close proximity and all worth a visit! Praia Verde, Manta Rota, Altura and Cabanas are within a 20km radius.

LOCAL ACTIVITIES AND THINGS TO DO: Tavira itself is primarily a town for sight-seeing, dining and relaxing, however, by travelling a little further afield there are a good range of things to do to suit all tastes. For nature lovers there are forest walks, cruises along the River Guadiana or nature trails along the Ria Formosa Reserve where bird watching is in abundance! By travelling towards the West there are some excellent shopping centres in Faro and Ghia as well as the famous Water Parks and Zoo Marine (wonderful for children), all easily reached by car (around 45 minutes) or by day trip coach. From this property it is easy to take a day trip to Spain.The Spanish border town of Ayamonte is approx 25kms by car, where the delights of another country can be sampled along with wine, Tapas and shopping. Ayamonte can also be reached by ferry from Vila Real. The vibrant city of Seville is about 170km away. As well as Tavira budding historians may enjoy Castro Marim castle.

GOLF INFORMATION: This is perfect accommodation for golfers wishing to sample the excellent courses situated in the Eastern Algarve. Within a 20km radius there are 7 courses to choose from. Benamor and the 2 Quintas (Ria and Cima) are the most popular and can be reached within several minutes. The prestigious new course of Monte Rei designed by Jack Nicklaus now has its first 18 holes open and is continuing in its development to the second phase offering the height of golfing luxury - although a costly experience, this is a real treat for golfing fanatics wishing to experience a little high life! Travelling only 10kms further on towards Spain, the challenging course of Castro Marim, along with its famous country club comes highly recommended and just across the border are the Costa Esuri and Quinta do Vale courses now growing in popularity. We can organise a full golfing package with 1 price per head with play at a selection of these courses, car hire and rental of this apartment. (Flights not included)

Absolutely wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Arrived in Tavira for the new year celebrations, and had an amazing time, the fireworks were just wonderful, and Tavira was buzzing, but not too busy, we had a lovely laid back break. What a big Plus being situated very near to the town. The apartment is beautiful, one of the best we have stayed in, as previous reviews say clean homely and has everything you would want. The weather was great. We even managed to sit out on the patio. We will be BACK!!.

Great apartment in a really good location

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent apartment, close to the centre of Tavira. It is just a few minutes walk from shops and restaurants, and the ferry to the beach, but in a quiet location. It has all the amenties you could want.

We wanted an apartment located where we did not need to hire a car. This was ideal. It is within easy walking distance to the many eating places in Tavira, as well as being near to shops, the market and the ferry to the beach.

It was 10 minutes walk to the train station, with trains along the coast. We also went on to Lisbon from Tavira by train (changing at Faro). Local buses were also good.

Tavira is a lovely place. We visited a number of the towns in the area and thought Tavira the best. It has lots of great eating places and is very picturesque. The atmosphere in the evenings is really good - very friendly with lots of families.

Great appartment in a perfect location!!

  • 4 of 5

Thanks for such a great holiday! We had a great time.

The appartment was perfect. Nice and modern, clean and comfortable with everything that we required. The apartment was in a perfect location, close to the centre of Tavira, and a 5min walk to the ferry that takes you over to the beach. Ideal. However, it was also lovely that the apartment in situated in a private and enclosed compound so that you can get away from it all. The pool is great to relax at the end of the day.

A great apartment in a great location. Couldnt have been happier!!

Very nice appartment, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this beautiful appartment! Love everything about it, the big livingroom, nice terrace, big kitchen. It all looks very new and beautiful. Location is perfect, in the centre of Tavira, but also quiet. We were there with our one year old son, just in front of the apartment is a playground, nice.

A short walk takes you directly into Tavira town centre where you will not fail to be enthralled by its unspoilt charm, character and tranquillity. As you wander along the cobbled streets, you'll see an abundance of history. A Roman bridge links the 2 parts of the town across the River Gilao, its sides decorated with traditional old bars and restaurants, there are many churches (37 in total!) to view, along with the town castle, several monuments and the typical fisherman's harbour leading to the River Formosa Natural Park. There is a wonderful daily market selling fresh home grown produce, and the local beach Island is accessible by small ferry boat and boasts excellent facilities and a wonderful holiday atmosphere. The main town square is brimming with small coffee shops, perfect for socialising at any time for the day. Horse drawn carriages and a small train operate around the town and are perfect for seeing all the sights and experiencing the peaceful, romantic ambience.
