Ann organised a driver, Vasvi to collect us from Faro which was very convenient. The house is small despite being 3 bedrooms. My husband and son are 6ft 2, so what I would say is that the staircase and bathroom are not made for larger people. Having said that, we did get used to it over the time. The kitchen had everything and with supermarkets all around making meals was easy. We arrived on a Friday and discovered that in the height of summer you must book a table at least two day's ahead! It is very busy. The ferry to the beach is regular and efficient and the beaches are all blue flag ie very clean. Tavira is a very pretty town but I would suggest a car if you want to go further afield.

The highlight though, is the stunning garden and many seating areas all of which have tasteful furniture, lighting and planting. The (essential!) pool is pristine and the whole property is meticulously maintained by the friendly and helpful owners
