About Vincent Tavares

I manage and rent properties in Algarve for many years. Please see my website

Why Vincent Tavares chose Algarve

Right on the beach? Better than that? As I learned in Australia, the best investment on real estate is to buy the worst house in the best street. I wish I have money to buy all the old houses in the old centre of Albufeira.

Lovely cottage in a fantastic location

  • 3 of 5

This is a beautiful property in a superb location. The only thing missing is air-conditioning!! Our stay was in mid-September, would not have survived in July/August. I would suggest air-con in bedrooms or at least ceiling fans. We slept with as many windows open as possible, but at least 2 of our party suffered mosquito bites and a disturbed sleep on the Saturday as there was a party on in the bar next door tip 3am. Parking is also an issue, 3 spaces next to cottage allegedly for residents, but we very rarely managed to get one.

Property is very clean and well maintained, cleaners came in twice during our week and replaced towels, but no sheets changed.

We ate in restaurant below cottage on 1st night, it was very good, but beware as there was no menu with prices and we ended up with a very expensive bill and as they do not accept credit cards we had to make a hurried trip back to cottage to get some cash from the safe!! There is a short walk to the old town via the escalators and there are many excellent restaurants to choose from. We particularly recommend Omanjar, and also had a good meal in the Shalom2 Build-a-burger restaurant. There is also a fantastic ice-cream shop just before you head back to the escalators! Our men played golf, mainly at Salgados, which is only 15 minutes drive away. The ladies mainly sunbathed on the beach, the terrace at the cottage is not really suitable for sunbathing. We paid 15 euros per day for 2 loungers and an umbrella, an additional cost to an already expensive holiday.

Owner's Response: I do agree with the lack of air con. I am sick of recommending the owner to its installation. It would cool the house and at the same time, it would avoid mosquitoes. However, I never had a complain about the house being hot in plain Summer. The sea breeze cools the house well. We have many other villas with air con as Natalie knows. May be not on top of the beach, but very close.
