Apartment is in a great location just a brief walk from the harbour and main shopping/eating areas. A really lovely apartment with two large balconies that give some interesting views over the town. Owner was very helpful on our arrival and recommended a few places to eat. The apartment was very well decorated and had everything you could possibly need for a few days or a week. Would highly recommend.

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.
