Super accommodation in good location.

5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay in Emilia's house. Emilia was a great host and was very helpful and kind to us throughout our stay. The house has great indoor and outdoor space. if anything the web description does not do it full justice. We made good use of all the facilities including dishwasher, washing machine and bbq. But the big drawing card is the outside terrace. We spent a lot of time there eating meals, sitting out or on the loungers. The location of the house is great with the Market and the feryboat to beach a mere 5 min walk away. There are supermarkets and little cafes nearby while the beautiful town centre is less that 10 mins walk. If you want to stay in Tavira you cannot go wrong with this property.

WOW! A perfect holiday home in a stunning location

5 of 5
This villa must rate among the best self-catering holiday accommodation I have ever experienced. From the moment you walk in the door it feels like a home rather than a holiday rental. The furnishings and decor are perfect and the villa contains everything you are ever going to need - the only thing you are asked to provide is beach towels. The villa is spotlesley clean, bright and airy, nice and cool especially at night. The kitchen is equipped to a very high standard with large fridge/freezer as well as all the small appliances. The villa having its own private swimming pool set in lovely gardens is a real bonus. The master bedroom is just beautiful, next to a well-appointed bathroom with lovely rustic tiles from the local area. The open plan lounge area is spacious and very comfortable. There are two large patios outside with tables, chairs and sun loungers provided. The villa also has private car parking which is very useful. All in all a great place to relax and unwind, easy walking distance to the beach, supermarkets, bars and restaurants. I Would highly recommend this beautiful homely villa to anyone and would definitely return.
