About the property

Cabanas -Taviria, Eastern Algarve, Portugal - Only a 10 Minute Walk to the Beach and Amenities.

A 2 Bedroom penthouse apartment with 2 bathrooms, lounge and fully equipped kitchen. This apartment offers it's own private roof top sun terrace, along with a separate balcony overlooking the communal pool. The apartment is situated in a small village, Cabanas; about 4km from Tavira in the Eastern Algarve, which is about 30 min drive from Faro airport. Although car hire is not essential, we would strongly recommend it in order to explore the surrounding area, with the Spanish border being only a 30 min drive away. The apartment is on a shared complex with access to a communal pool and a separate children’s pool. From here the lovely sandy beach at Cabanas is a 15 min walk. Here you will find some delightful bars and restaurants and a local supermarket.

About Caroline

We are an English Family with 2 young boys. Will love to visit Portugal and our Apartment as much as we can for a total switch off. We live by the beach in the UK so spend a lot of time on the beach, but I have to say, taking the boat to the beach in Portugal is a highlight for the kids. The pool is great to relax after a hard day on the beach. We also like to chill out in the evenings on the roof terrace and watch the sun set with a glass of wine. With two small children, we try and alternate with food by either staying in or visiting one of the great local restaurants.

Why Caroline chose Conceição

We look the calm relax atmosphere of Cabanas and love the different restaurants that are around.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The apartment is lovely. The location is great, close to bars and restaurants. We return year after year as we love it. There is a train about 5 mins walk which takes you into Tavira.

Fantastic apartment in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit, having loved it so much last year, just had to come back. The apartment is faultless. It has everything you need, and is absolutely spotless. The air-con works perfectly and the beds are comfy. The balcony from the lounge is a great place to have a leisurely breakfast in the sun and the roof terrace is bliss anytime. We had a routine where we'd have a leisurely breakfast, quick walk to the local supermarket (3 min walk) for fresh bread. Back to make sandwiches then walk to beach (10-15 minutes easy walk). Late afternoon back to apartment, then onto roof terrace for a couple of hours with a bottle or two then back to the town for evening meal.

Everything about Cabanas, the beach, this apartment are perfect 'ingredients' for a relaxing, chill-out holiday. Will definitely be back.

Finally, would recommend the pick up service from Jeff & Wendy. Jeff, was there to pick us up, and arrived to take us back bang on time. Really nice, friendly guy. Leave the driving in the UK and enjoy the break.

Thanks again Caroline.

great week in the sun

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was exactly as pictures shown. Well maintained and clean with everything you could need for a holiday. We especially loved the private roof terrace. Pool area clean with plenty of sun beds and was never too busy. Supermarket and a couple of restaurants within a 5 minute walk and a pleasant 15/20 minute walk to the seafront where there are numerous restaurants, bars, etc. Communication with Caroline very straightforward and helpful and a special mention to Jeff who picked us up from the train station and took us straight to the apartment - very much appreciated!

Great Easter Break

  • 5 of 5

The Apartment is exactly as shown in the pictures. Better yet, there is a new flat TV . Was clean, tidy and well organized from the day we arrived till we left.

Communication with Caroline was very easy and her instructions to arrive (we drove from Madrid) were helpfull.

Thanks Caroline for sharing your lovely property.

A pleasant penthouse.

  • 4 of 5

A clean well presented apartment in a reasonable and, overall, quiet location. We loved the rooftop barbecue. A couple of small maintenance issues; the bedside lamps did not function, the hot water boiler was a little temperamental in that, on occasion it failed to ignite and the fridge door had a broken shelf and had to be closed firmly. Whilst the location was ideal for golfers, a good golfcourse nearby, we would recommend that any potential guests have the use of a vehicle.Otherwise, very pleased and would say that it provided good value for money.

Zum Wohlfühlen und Entspannen

  • 5 of 5

großzügige, geschmackvoll eingerichtete und mit allem Notwendigen ausgestatte Ferienwohnung in Ost-West-Ausrichtung mit toller Dachterasse und freiem Blick in einer Appartementanlage zehn Autominuten von Tavira und ca. 2 km vom Strand entfernt gelegen. Die Bilder vermitteln einen realistischen Eindruck. Idealer Ausgangspunkt für Erkundungen der östlichen Algarve. Ohne Auto jedoch etwas weite Wege.

If you take 15 minute walk from the apartment it will bring you to the pretty waterfront of Cabanas. From here you will be able to take a 2 minute boat ride over to beautiful Cabanas beach, which has 3km of amazing white sand. Cabanas beach is a beautiful naturally formed island separated from the mainland by the River Formosa. Boats cost 1 Euro return per person and run throughout the day. The beach has it's own changing facilities, parasols, sun beds and cafe bar.


The nearest airport to Cabanas is Faro and it is approximately a 35 minute drive; taxis and car hire are available from the airport and a local rail service a 5 minute walk from the apartment, the apartment is ideally placed for your holiday location, with no aircraft fly-overs. A half hour drive will take you across the Spanish border. Car hire is not essential if you just want a relaxing holiday, but recommended if you wish to explore the Algarve more fully or venture into Spain.


The motorway IP1/A22 now runs the length of the Algarve making the Western Algarve very convenient to explore. The historic and beautiful town of Tavira is 10 minutes away by car and is a most to visit.

Further Details:

Cabanas has some lovely restaurants which are very small and friendly serving fresh local food. There are a number of small supermarkets near the apartment but in Tavira there is a large super market and fish and veg market.
