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.

Home away from home

5 of 5
I cant recommend this villa enough, anyone looking for a home away from home and a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life should come and stay here. The island is so un-commercial you really feel part of the community and you can't help being immersed in the culture. Mandy the owner is great and always available to help and usually goes above and beyond just information. The house is beautiful with everything you could need. It has a great roof terrace to while away the evening after a long day at the beach. The beach is amazing! It is a 10/15 minute walk to get there but you won't be disappointed, mile after mile of clean white sand and warm sea. If you want to be on your own then just walk a short distance and that's what you get. Getting from the airport is an easy 15 mins in a taxi. Don't believe the 45 euro price, its 20 to 25 euros max. Uber is even easier and the best way to get back at 16 euros. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend 'Casa Amelia' and Culatra to anyone thinking of going to Portugal for a very relaxing holiday. Wonderful stay. Thank you Mandy for letting us stay, my boys can't wait to come back.

Lovely stay in a spacious and well equipped apartment in abeautiful resort with fabulous restaurants

5 of 5
We had a wonderful two weeks in Tavira staying in Joao’s apartment. It’s really well positioned for access from Faro and just a short walk into the town centre The apartment itself is very spacious, comfortable and extremely well equipped and (thanks Leonora) spotlessly clean. We were greeted by Leonora and she generously presented us with locally produced figs and some monster tomatoes!! Both were absolutely delicious! When some friends joined us We used the BBQ on the outdoor terrace - though it’s not currently really suited to lying in the sun with shaded netting over most of it making it feel a bit humid. Thanks for the recommendations for local restaurants Joao - have to say we weren’t disappointed anywhere we chose to eat , Tavira is a gorgeous place full of friendly people and has a wonderful selection of restaurants - we were absolutely spoilt for choice and great value! We’d add to that list and recommend La Petit France on the other side of the river - the best meal we had , great service and atmosphere with live music. The beaches are wonderful in and around Tavira, but it is a bit of a trek involving ferries to get to them. Well worth it though when you get there. The healthy eating festival was on near the end of our stay and that just added to our overall good holiday experience. Finally I did some cycling while I was there (used Albilio bikes - they supplied very good road bikes and VFM). So we got out and about and met even more of the wonderful very kind Portuguese people. Tip thoough - take plenty water!
