Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Cabanas de Tavira - Costa de Cabanas

2 Bedrooms & 2 bathrooms with HUGE balcony & BBQ

The large wrap around balcony (23 sq mtrs) allows you to get the sun in the morning and also in the evening. The beach and the restaurants and shops are a short walk. There is a farm next door.

The privacy of the three balconies allow you to have breakfast at the back when the sun rises, and dinner in the evening at the front. You may decide to dine out in one of the many restaurants in the village. These are excellent value and very friendly. The food varies and is local produce. Its always a great indicator when the Portuguese are dining in the same restaurant as you. Typically it will cost €35 for two for a three course meal with a bottle of wine.

Public transport is within a short walk, so you do not need to hire a car. It is handier to have one but not necessary

This village is one of the most friendly and relaxing places in Europe. We always meet people who have been going to Cabanas for ten and fifteen years, You will love it too.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • pets not allowed
  • smoking allowed
  • wheelchair inaccessible

About Alan Shaw

I take a lot of photos while on holiday, but there are very few of me! I am in my 50's and spent half my life in the UK & the rest in Ireland. It would be nice to spend more time in Portugal where the weather is more appealing

Why Alan Shaw chose Cabanas de Tavira

The apartment is in the very best complex in Cabanas and we chose this apartment because it has a view and a balcony on three sides. We like the privacy yet the proximity to all the restaurants and bars, and the beach. Everything is just a few minutes walk away. Its so relaxing.

Great Apartment

  • 5 out of 5
Fab Apartment in great location. Close to sea front, bars, shops and restaurants. Clean and well managed, plus lots of brilliant info. from very helpful owner.
Happy to recommend to friends and family. Would definitely return to same apartment next time.
Cabanas is a quiet relaxing place, not for anyone looking for bright lights and late nights!! But excellent for peaceful, romantic breaks.

What a fantastic property

  • 5 out of 5
Fantastic apartment. The wrap around balcony was ideal! The towels and linen were spotless as was the cleanliness of the apartment. The complex its self was ideal. The pool and bar facilities were excellent and there is no shortage of sun loungers. The owner was helpful, sending us details of good bars and restaurants and maps of the area before hand. The complex manager was very helpful arranging taxis and giving directions and showing us around the apartment. The location was brilliant, only 5 mins walk to the promenade where an excellent selection of restaurants can be found. The resort is peaceful, but lively enough to eat out at a different restaurant every night. The locals are helpful and friendly, and it is an excellent place for families or couples wanting a relaxed no hassle holiday. The local fish and veg markets are a must and everything is very reasonable. We had a fantastic holiday and would recommend this destination and accommodation if you want to visit the real Portugal.

Everything I had wanted

  • 5 out of 5
This has been the best apartment we have stayed in. Spacious, spotless, a veritable home from home. It was just right. We especially loved the wrap around balcony that gave us views of the area and of the nearby farmland. The area was authentic, the people warm and friendly, the food delicious and organic. The pool side was well kept, the manageress Maria efficient and helpful. The beach, a boat ride away gave us access to the wonderful wildness of the Atlantic with a lovely sea breeze. We hired bikes and cycled off track, venturing into the hills and one day to the town of Tavira which we loved. There is a restaurant there called Rive Gauche, that is wonderful and is reminiscent of a French restaurant with its attention to detail and exquisite taste.We loved the art shops and the outdoor cafes. Cabanas was ideal with walks along the river front at night and ice cream that kept calling us to indulge. I would totally recommend anyone to rent this apartment for a relaxing and energetic holiday. Alan, the owner, was very helpful and gave great advice about the area and how we could orient ourselves. .

Owner's Response: Martha, thank you for taking the time to write a review. It is very much appreciated. I can say. hand on heart, that it was a pleasure corresponding with you, and I would be so delighted if you stayed with us in the future. I agree with you about your description of Cabanas. We look forward to our annual holiday there for months in advance. I have seen the reviews of Rive Gauche but have not yet had the pleasure of dining there.
Muito obrigado for your kind words
Alan

Really loved the apartment and its location.

  • 5 out of 5
Excellent place, near to pool, shops and restaurant's and miles of golden beaches, the apartment was perfect for us, clean and very well maintained with a local agent to help if we had any problems.
I would certainly recommend this property to friends as long as they don't book it for the same dates that we have for 2015!!. The owner was very good to deal with and all the payments and relative paperwork/maps etc were prompt and very helpful.
Regards, Rob & Sally Bailey

"This is an especially beautiful apartment in a beautiful area. Clean, bright, comfortable, with all the amenities you could ask for. The corner balcony meant we could eat breakfast in the sunshine and dinner too.
The town itself is very pretty, with good restaurants and shops. We particularly loved La Charette, only a few minutes walk away, It''s always quiet but the food is top notch - tastes home made and the portions are huge.
The boardwalk is a wonderful addition to the town, really sets it apart from nearby areas. Everyone in the town is so down-to-earth and friendly.
We really enjoyed our stay and would heartily recommend it to all our friends."

I will provide you with a detailed directions map. The property is about 5 mins from the EN125 which runs East to West along the Algarve and this also connects to the main motorway the A22. You can also travel by Train from Faro to the local station which is in walking distance to the apartment.

Theres around 20 restaurants in the village offering excellent food at great value. The Blue Flag beach runs for 3k of soft sandy beach. This small fishing village is THE place to relax and unwind.
