Things to do

The church of Santa Maria do Castelo:

This church was built on the site of a Moorish mosque and is home to the tombs of many knights. The origins of the church date back to the 13th century. The clock tower was constructed out of the original minaret of the mosque that once stood here.

Tavira Castle:

In its original grandeur, the Tavira castle had seven towers and was constructed by the Moors. Today, parts of the original wall have been worked into a reconstruction, including the "Arco da Misericórdia", one of the original entrances to the castle. A climb to the tallest towers offers a panoramic view of the city.

                                                        What a little find!! Most definitely recommend this lovely apartment situated in this quiet tradition fishing village, thank you to the owner and his family for the attention to detail and all the provisions. Must do's if you visit, eat Octopus at the excellent restaurants, walk or bus to Tavira, walk to Barril beach and go across on the little train, have tapas in the church square, walk the cobbled streets and see the beautiful tiled houses. Take a mat for pool, as no sun beds are allowed in this little complex. Fabulous! Liz, Elaine, Ann & Linda

                                                        We stayed two weeks in this beautiful apartment. Everything was as promised, very clean, beautifully furnished and tastefully decorated. The view from the living room to the sea is magnificent. This was our first time in Algarve and we were positively surprised. The people are so nice and helpful and most of them speak good English. The food in the restaurants is really beautiful and full of taste. The village of Cabanas is nice and rather quiet, a perfect place where it is easy to relax. But it’s also worthwhile visiting the neighbor villages and Ria Formosa. The nature is absolutely beautiful. A special thanks to the owners, Bernard and Angelica for the warm welcome and the hospitality. We would definitely recommend.

                                                        Everything I hoped for.........

                                                        5 of 5
                                                        As I had never booked a private property in Portugal before I was a little nervous about it but I have to say Ann was very helpful and always responded quickly to my messages about her property. When we arrived in Tavira which was only about forty minutes from Faro Airport, we were greeted by Vasvi at 9.00pm to give us the keys and show us around the house. I fell in love with Tavira as soon as I got there and the house was lovely, it had everything you need for a self catering holiday. Ann was also very thoughtful and left some shopping for us such as bread and milk etc. as the shops might have been closed when we arrived. The house is in a really nice quiet area but walking distance to all the restaurants and shops, we found many good restaurants to eat out and only really had breakfast at the house. We did go to an Italian restaurant just a few yards from the house on the road to China Bizaar, the food was good and the staff were really friendly. We were so lucky as the weather during the day was in the 20's but it did get a bit cold at night and we put the heating on in the house for a wee while to take the chill away. There was only one small thing and that was the stairs were quite narrow as others have said, one of my friends had a walking disability and stayed in one of the first floor rooms which he managed ok but just took his time. I would definitely recommend this property and visiting the village of Tavira, I hope to be back in the summer.
