Sleeps 2 plus baby. (There is also a double sofa bed in the living room.) Quality 1-bed first floor apartment in a modern,secure complex with a cobbled courtyard and a relaxing swimming pool.
Set in the quiet back streets of historic Tavira and surrounded by typical Algarve houses, it's central location allows you to leave the car behind and immerse yourself in the local atmosphere by walking through the narrow cobbled streets, peering through open doors to see a secret courtyard or visiting small shops for their locally produced products.
At night Tavira is a bustling city with a multitude of restaurants on either side of the river providing a variety of cuisine. During the summer months, in the main square, you can pass away the late evening hours watching the live shows, or listen to the music whilst enjoying a cool drink at one of the al fresco cafes. Tavira accommodates all tastes and styles throughout each season and the apartment is ideally positioned to meet your needs.
The apartment is only 2 minutes walk to a bar and café, 5 minutes to the market for fresh fish, meat, fruit and vegetables and only a few minutes walk to shops, restaurants and the riverside.
Set in the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve, Tavira has retained a lot of its old character and avoided mass tourism. As it is not solely a holiday resort, it is still a good place to visit in winter. It is ideally situated for exploring the whole Algarve and also Spain (30 km away). There are 6 golf courses within a 20km radius, including Benamor (4km), Quintas Ria and Cima (7km). Take a ferry to Tavira island beaches, hire bikes and cycle old tracks or walk for miles on empty beaches.
The apartment has a living/dining room with sliding windows which open onto the balcony overlooking the pool. There is a new sofa which converts into a double bed. The kitchen, overlooking the street and traditional roof tops, is at the back and is fully fitted including washing machine and dishwasher. The bedroom also overlooks the quiet street and has a double bed and a range of fitted cupboards. The small balcony catches the early morning sun. Licence no. 1313/AL
