We are a couple with grown up children and several grandchildren and great grandchildren. We love the historical Tavira plus the modern aspects of new shopping centres. It's so beautiful with the Isle of Tavira to hand and other lovely golden beaches nearby. There are golf courses, mini golf, beach games galore. I found the abundance of cheap family restaurants a bonus. The Portuguese are so family oriated and helpful. The whole area seems secure with very little disturbance. There are plenty of music festivals and events held in the centre too. I have felt very at home here and hope other people feel the same.

We have just returned from the apartment and our stay in Tavira and are all gutted to be home! The apartment is big, clean and offers everything you would ever need for a holiday with a home from home experience. From the moment we booked to the day of arrival you couldn't hope for a more organised hassle free experience. The area although slightly off the beaten track is very quiet and feels very safe. The pool complex which contains a very reasonably priced cafe bar is around a 20 minutes walk. The centre of Tavira is around the same distance although in a different direction. There are maps and plenty of information within the apartment to help you navigate around. A taxi is probably the best way to the centre and if you ask for Strada da Fonte or Fonte da Strada they will find you if you hang around the street leading to the apartment. If you use the taxi numbers from the apartment you will probably end up with the same drivers who are very friendly and helpful and will be waiting outside the apartment once they have picked you up a couple of times. The pool area is a nice walk straight over the roundabout and down the the bottom of the hill, we found it by asking people and initially had a bit of difficulty but I probably should have read the instructions in the apartment properly!! Tavira is beautiful and has a lovely Portuguese feel, a lot different to the west of the algarve. It also seems better value for money and is definitely hotter! We will be returning without doubt!
It was lovely having this guest and family to our apartment. There was plenty of communication beforehand and we have a friend on hand to meet and greet our guests so they feel comfortable. Our guests particularly enjoyed our welcome breakfast pack as they had a late flight. Nothing is too much trouble for our guests and very glad they enjoyed their stay.
The appartament was great,lots of space,everything you need.I hope we'll be able to visit the same place next year!The owner is was very helpfull.
Perfect for children
We are a couple with two young children and our stay in Linda’s apartment was like being home. We had everything available for the children: travel cot, high chair, all sorts of beach toys and kitchen appliances needed for some homemade meals.
The apartment is big, modern and very clean. Swimming pool of the complex is less than 5 minutes driving and was never crowded so it was a nice spot to relax in the afternoon.
Linda is very nice, always communicating everything in advance and making all the arrangements needed.
Being a little bit off the center makes it really quiet and at the same time you have all you need in a 5-minute driving.
We highly recommended it and hope to return soon.
I am very pleased to receive Claudia's review. I try and keep a very clean and homely place with plenty of extras. Claudia and family had a car, but, I would add, there is a hourly bus service to large shopping mall, and centre of historic Tavira, which leaves from next Building. Additionally loads of Taxi cards are in the apartment.
It was lovely having such a brilliant little family enjoy their holiday at my apartment.
Insgesamt in Ordnung
Klar, es ist eine Privatwohnung die vermietet wird.
Doch hier ist alles mit privaten Dingen so vollgestellt, daß wir Mühe hatten irgendwo unsere eigenen Dinge unterzubringen.
Das geht nicht. Aber Preis/Leistung war in Ordnung
En general muy bien
El apartamento muy amplio,nuevo,limpio.
No falta de nada...menaje,juegos,libros,información....
La comunicacion con la dueña muy buena incluso por email...cualquier solución muy rapida.
Lo unico que la distancia tanto al pueblo como a la piscina es un buen paseito y al final necesitas coche sobre todo si vas con niños .Pero si te mentalizas y no te importa coger el coche...el apartamento merece mucho la pena y es de lo mejor que.he encontrado.
Por cierto...la zona donde esta es una urbanizacion muy tranquila para descansar.
Detalle de botella de.vino,agua al llegar lo cual se agradece mucho..
Muchas gracias por.todo Linda.
Thanks for your review on our apartment which was most kind.
Unfortunately the swimming pool, which was meant to be built, has not happened, so we must look at other options. There is also Tavira Gardens, and they allow non residents for a daily fee. This is by the main N125 road, Porta Nova. Tavira.
I do hope you will think of us next year for your holidays.
