The property manager was really helpful and was there to greet us on arrival which was useful. The property is well located very close to the centre so a car isn't really necessary. It does back on to a road so there is some traffic noise from about 7.30am, but as an early riser this doesn't bother me. The pool area was nice and clean although quite small, in busy summer months it may get a bit overrun but no problem when we were there as the complex was quiet. Tavira itself is a great place to visit, it's a lovely old town with a great choice of quality restaurants and the beach at Island of Tavira is wonderful. There's the added bonus of a railway station which gives you the opportunity to visit further afield without needing a car. Loved it here and will definitely come back.

It is in an excellent location and even in May was very peaceful and quiet. We found the owner Eduardo and the property manager very helpful. We had our own transport so were able to visit many places but for visitors without a car as mentioned by other guests the train station is right on the doorstep! We are hoping we will be able to return later in the year. Thank you Eduardo and Pedro.
