This tastefully restored town house is located on a quiet pedestrian lane on the border of the historical centre of Tavira, often known as the 'Jewel of the Algarve'. A perfect base for a peaceful holiday, with no need to drive as all amenities are within 5 - 10 minutes walk.
Catch the beach boat from the river Gilao downstream to the beautiful islands in front of Tavira. Enjoy the 12km stretch of white sand beach, observe the traditional fishing and farming in and around Tavira, catch some wonderful sunsets over the rolling hills surrounding Tavira and home to many 'timeless' villages. Sample the freshness of good native ingredients in the many restaurants around Tavira, dining 'al fresco' in the many sidewalk cafes and restaurants that invite us to take time out to observe the lifestyles and movements of people out and about town.
Comprising a kitchen with dining and living room, 3 bedrooms, one ensuite, annexed from the other two bedrooms and bathroom, but accessed through the same private courtyard, this house offers ample space for couples and families.
A beautifully structured wooden roof over the rooms also supplies shade to part of the courtyard area while other parts remain great sunspots. An ideal location for families with small children as the courtyard is secure and child friendly. Pets are also welcome, there will be a small charge for them.
The kitchen is also modern with all appliances and comforts one might need on holiday.
Beach towels are provided and we have three bicycles you are welcome to use!
There is a cot and high chair provided. Please let us know if you have any other requirements.
Suitable for elderly.
This is a semi detached property with a few neighbours further up the lane and not at all overlooked.
The lane is cobbled and pedestrianised. Accessed some meters away from parking and tarmac roads.
As a town property this remains a quiet area
Ashtrays are provided for smoking outside the property.
The Ria Formosa Nature Reserve is a paradise for walkers and birdwatchers alike. For people who prefer a little more strenuous exercise there is also a local kitesurfing school, horse riding, tennis and many mountain bike trails. Boats leave the pier for deep-sea fishing all along the Algarve Coast.
An excellent commuter train service connects all the coastal towns of the Algarve with a frequency of 1 train per hour during the day and connects Tavira with the twice daily Faro-Lisbon express. The Spanish border is 20 minutes away, while Seville is 90 minutes drive or a little longer by the twice daily express bus.
Tavira is an ideal town for family holidays, the town itself is a charming mix of old and new – Roman, Moorish and Portuguese features abound. There are many restaurants and fish is a specialty. Inexpensive restaurants, bars and cafes abound in Tavira and the surrounding villages. From June through September, there is an abundance of street entertainment in the form of concerts, street theatre, markets, fairs and processions.

Great for outdoor but no so good for indoor!
The courtyard is fantastic and the refurbishment of this property is very well done. But the three separate areas don't work quite so well. Also, it could do with proper heating as the two small hot air blowers were ok but not sufficient during March when it was cold at night time. Good value for money but not sure we'd stay again.
A lovely property with privacy, space and style
The property is set around a courtyard which leads off a pedestrian street, so it is a lovely peaceful location. The rooms are great, and the quality of the finish is too. 5/7 minutes walk from the property to the centre of town, train station and supermarket. Maybe 15 mins to the beach ferry. We found the property a lovely retreat in the middle of the day. The only downside was the midges - take insect repellent!!
2 of the bedrooms share a spacious hall and shower room. The other has its own front door. May sound odd but he courtyard setting really works - just make sure you ask for all 3 rooms to be opened.
Maria the owner is very friendly.
Dear Family Morton
Many thanks for your very helpful and generous feedback. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at Alto do Cano.
By accident Maria had locked the last bedroom, apologies for that, normally the whole property is available to guests!
We hope that we will see you again in the near future at either this or another Jacaranda managed property.

GOSTÁMOS DO ESPAÇO, LOGRADOURO MUITO AGRADÁVEL. SÓ FALTA MAIS VENTILAÇÃO
NA CASA DE BANHO DO HALL DOS QUARTOS.
obrigada, pelo sugestão....
Très bonnes vacances dans cette maison de charme typique de l'Algarve
Je conseille cette maison qui est très agréable, absolument impeccable et aménagée avec goût - à noter que sans la climatisation au mois d'août les nuits sont chaudes...le centre ville est tout proche. Pour 6 (nous étions 4) la vaisselle est un peu juste et la table dehors petite..sinon rien à dire c'est parfait.
Golfing is very well catered for in this area, with beautiful new courses just minutes away.
The summer brings much outdoor entertainment including cinema festivals, markets and live music.
A perfectly safe beach environment on the islands of tavira, ideal for families and children of all ages.
Numerous good restaurants and cafes to try out... Tavira is a special and much-loved location.
