Brilliant Villa & Highly Recommended

5 of 5
Family of 15 (some infants) stayed. Smooth booking with Adrian. Upon arrival Pedro from the management company looked after things including supplying a welcome pack as we arrived late at night. Fab house, very spacious, has every accessory u can think of for cooking etc. Sitting room and all bed rooms have a/c. Pool area is gated which was ideal as we had kids with us. We spent a lot of time in the Barbecue area where the barbecue itself had a new cooking frame in it, we used this about 10 days out of 14-excellent facility and this was probably the best thing in the villa outside the 12m x 6m heated swimming pool. Villa located in a very quiet area, shop, pubs and restaurants all 5min walk away. Highly recommended villa and hope to return in the future. 👍🏻👍🏻

Perfect apartment in lovely location

5 of 5
Just returned from 5 days in the apartment in Cabanas. I visited with my mum and sister,16, and we had a lovely few days. The apartment is spacious, clean and well equipped with great facilities. Jayne met us when we arrived and was lovely and incredibly accommodating, she was also kind enough to arrange transfers from Faro airport too. The apartment is a great size and has all you could need including very good WiFi! It’s cool and so we rarely needed the aircon and is also very quiet. Cabanas as a whole is a beautiful fishing town and has some lovely restaurants and cafes and the beach is easy to get to. We also recommend hiring bikes and cycling to Tavira. It truly was a perfect stay!
