About aoife wilde

Hi, I'm a driving instructor and I work part time also as a retail manager for a very busy UK clothing retailer here in Ireland. I love going to Portugal on my holidays to relax and get away for my busy life !

aoife wilde purchased this house in 2006

Why aoife wilde chose Tavira

We have alway's holidayed in Portugal every year and we love the climate and the relaxed way of life. We choose Tavira especially for its quaint town, beautiful beaches all within 5 minutes drive of the complex and for the friendly Portuguese people that live there. We love that the town hasn't been commericalised nor has it been over run by tourists ! A perfect place to relax and unwind overlooking the river Galio whilst having a glass of wine !

What makes this house unique

The complex is situated only 7 minutes walk (by the river Galio) into Tavira town. So if you dont't plan on getting a car there's no need to worry. All the shops and restaurants are within walking distance or by car 2-3 minutes. If you love to golf there are 3 courses close by, horseriding, boatride, kayaking etc.

Guestbook comments from the owner

An absolute credit to you ! Fab house and development so close to the beautiful town of Tavira, keep us in mind for next year ! Mary and Martin

Highly recommend, great for small kids

  • 5 of 5

House is clean, bright and spacious, far more so than you would normally get in holiday accommodation. Beautifully decorated and obviously well maintained, it feels like a real family home rather than a holiday rental.

2 * twin bedrooms can be easily configured as doubles. Very spacious master with large en-suite and balcony overlooking the pool area.

Downstairs living area has a large kitchen with modern appliances , utility room, internal courtyard and living room.

Sliding doors from living room to the patio area which is c.5 metres from the kids paddling pool. This was the greatest feature for us with 2 young kids (2.5 & 4) as we could relax on the patio while the kids played in and around the pool while still staying close. It's also great to be able to jump in the pool whenever you want and just take a couple of steps back to your own house.

The town is a 10 minute walk away as is the nearest supermarket (Lidl). There are some steep steps down to the town so depending on the time or tiredness of the kids we often got a Taxi back to the house which costs about 5 euro. We used taxis a lot in Tavira as we didn't hire a car but they are good quality, cheap and reliable.

In short, this house is much bigger, cleaner and better equipped than your average holiday rental and if the complex is quiet it's like having your own private pool at the back door. Could not recommend more highly.

Fabulous House in Terrific Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Kevin & Aoife's beautiful house in Tavira on the eastern Algarve for ten days. This house is absolutely fabulous, spacious and bright, home from home. They have thought of everything right down to all the little things you might forget to bring on holiday like the foreign adapter , hairdryer and the corkscrew !!

The house is very well designed consisting of three well proportioned bedrooms , one double with ensuite and two twin rooms to accommodate six people comfortably, there is also a family bathroom with jacuzzi bath.

Everything is provided including towels and crisp white linen, light duvets and comfortable pillows.

The kitchen is brilliant with all mod cons provided including dishwasher, fridge freezer ,microwave , etc. The utility area has a washing machine and an internal patio area to dry clothes. Secure parking is also provided .

The living area is bright and extremely well furnished with dining room table and two leather couches. A huge bonus for this property is that Kevin & Aoife have provided free wifi,satellite TV and a DVD player with a selection of DVDs. The living room opens onto a patio where you can dine al fresco.There is a large swimming pool and garden area which are extremely well maintained and manicured. There is also a roof top terrace with BBQ and sun loungers and a fabulous view of the town of Tavira. Marguerita is the caretaker / manager of the property and met us on arrival, she gave us all the relevant information and told us to contact her at any stage if we needed her.

Tavira town is within walking distance from the house which has a great selection of restaurants and cafe bars to choose from.

Some of the best beaches in the world according to "The Lonely planet" are located in this area, and you can take it from me, this is correct - Barril Beach , Tavira Beach , Cabanas and more.

We highly recommend this property and look forward to a return visit.
