The living room over looks the beach area & the side balcony the Forte de Joao da Barra (old fort, now a b&b). The road out of Cabanas does run along the eastern side of the apartment however we did not experience any undue noise at any time of the day. We slept with the bedroom doors open and were sometimes woken during the night by the garbage collection vehicle - this was not a problem for us and could have been solved by sleeping with the doors closed and the aircon on. As stated in many of the other reviews, the accommodation is very well appointed, it easily accommodates two couples and Bernard & Angelica are most welcoming. The aprtments many paintings and pictures are most interesting and the owners provided for all eventualities including a cool bag and umbrella for the beach! On the lower level the duplex has a small balcony overlooking the fort which is ideal for breakfast &/or lunch. On the upper floor there is a roof balcony which is reached via either of the two bedrooms. You can take the afternoon sun on this balcony and provides a quite spot for an aperitif. The apartment block itself is safe and well presented. It is just fifty yards to the ferry crosses the river estuary to the beach. The beach is spectacular and is just like a giant sand bar. The walk along the modern board walk (which is raised) provides an easy amble along Cabanas sea front, pass many of the resorts restaurants, snack bars and small shops. On the board walk you will also find a number of kiosks offering boat trips to Tavira and parts of the Ria Formosa nature reserve.There is a small Spar shop which sells most things is within two hundred yards of the accommodation. Whilst some may hire a car, it certainly is not needed as there is plenty of easy walking, a boat taxi or bus that will take you to Tavira and beyond. In addition there are a number of coach excursions available and we did take the trip to Seville which was most interesting. Bernard's communication throughout the booking process was excellent and both Cabanas and the duplex are highly recommended.

Although we drove from Saville Airport there's really no need for a car unless your planning to tour the Algarve. Great not having to bring beach towels as these were provided. Beach umbrellas also. Air Conditioning very welcome as temperatures well over 30 all week. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils and having breakfast outside in the courtyard was a bonus. The staircase up to the bedrooms might prove a problem for folk with disabilities or young children, but otherwise we found the house very pleasant and at night very quiet. The local ferry is 5 minutes away and takes you over to the beach. The Mercado market nearby has fresh fish daily as well as a number of butchers. Fruit and vegetables also on sale. There are numerous restaurants not only Portuguese, you can eat at and all in ally out shouldn't be disappointed by your stay in Tavira.
