                                                                                                      We stayed in Casa Das Figueiras late October/ early November, booked this property with the advantage of having stayed in one of Merry and Simons other properties, therefor we knew that the house would be as described and would be in first class condition, needless to say, we were correct. This is a lovely little house, very quaint with many local features, but with all the modern facilities you could require. Bright rooms and a lovely private roof terrace, make it a fantastic place to stay. It is situated a short walk to a good size supermarket with fresh bread, fish, meats and the normal requirements. Being in the centre of the town, means a leisurely stroll takes you into the heart of the town, with all its bars and restaurants. However, the house is far enough away to make it a very quiet and relaxing area. The other residents in the small cobbled street are local and extremely friendly to their part time neighbours. It would be remiss of me not to mention Merry and Simon who are not your standard owners. They clearly care so much about their properties and most importantly the quality of the holiday their guests enjoy. They can provide you with any help and information you require to ensure you enjoy your time with them. We can honestly say that booking one of their properties really does remove that doubt in the back of your mind, the one we all have, will it be as described, will it be clean and up to a good standard, because they really are as good as they look Thanks to Merry and Simon another great holiday, we will most certainly return to Tavira

The house is very private and has everything you could need. We were able to be far enough away from everything to relax in the villa and it's surroundings whilst also easily able to get to Tavira and other nearby towns for day trips or evenings out. We would definitely recommend to anyone. Thank you to Antonio and Norberto for all your help prior and during our stay.
