We had a wonderful two weeks in Tavira staying in Joao’s apartment. It’s really well positioned for access from Faro and just a short walk into the town centre The apartment itself is very spacious, comfortable and extremely well equipped and (thanks Leonora) spotlessly clean. We were greeted by Leonora and she generously presented us with locally produced figs and some monster tomatoes!! Both were absolutely delicious!
When some friends joined us We used the BBQ on the outdoor terrace - though it’s not currently really suited to lying in the sun with shaded netting over most of it making it feel a bit humid.
Thanks for the recommendations for local restaurants Joao - have to say we weren’t disappointed anywhere we chose to eat , Tavira is a gorgeous place full of friendly people and has a wonderful selection of restaurants - we were absolutely spoilt for choice and great value! We’d add to that list and recommend La Petit France on the other side of the river - the best meal we had , great service and atmosphere with live music.
The beaches are wonderful in and around Tavira, but it is a bit of a trek involving ferries to get to them. Well worth it though when you get there.
The healthy eating festival was on near the end of our stay and that just added to our overall good holiday experience.
Finally I did some cycling while I was there (used Albilio bikes - they supplied very good road bikes and VFM). So we got out and about and met even more of the wonderful very kind Portuguese people. Tip thoough - take plenty water!
We were 4 adults staying for 6 nights at Casa Linda. We had a great time there! The location was perfect as we wanted to spend some time on the awesome beach, and it was only a 10 minute walk from the apartment!
The apartment itself was big, clean and really well equipped. You could easily live just like at home and cook and enjoy our time at the apartment. Also you could find things there to take with you to the beach.
We had great expectations after the reading the superb reviews, and our expectations were met and even surpassed!
Would highly recommend Casa Linda, and would book it again if we return to the area.
