Magnificent penthouse "the Terraces of Cabanas de Tavira"
average rating of 5.0 based on 1 reviews

Excellent accommodation. Immaculate condition, very thoughtfully presented

  • 5 of 5

Within very short distance to boardwalk. Very close to good restaurant and also local bar. Accommodation had everything necessary for (in our case) 3 week stay. Superfast wi-fi (so bring tablet, as English TV stations only news channels). 2 massive terraces (one had super Hesperide loungers. Have looked but can't buy them in UK). Sun all day long on upper terrace, and most of the day on lower one (which also has very good BBQ). Well stocked kitchen, large fridge/freezer. 2 coffee machines, microwave, hob, oven, washing machine, plenty of cutlery/crockery, millions of different utensils. Ironing board, hairdryer. All were almost new. Good sized lounge/diner. 2 large bedrooms with lots of wardrobe space. Good sized bathroom with bath/shower. Also second WC. Every window which opened had a good quality insect screen. There was also air-con but we didn't try it out. Swimming pool is in same complex but across a small road. Nobody in it whenever we went. Good size. We were met by the agents, on time, and shown around the very clean and tastefully fitted (mainly Ikea) accommodation, and also given contact numbers to ring if there were any problems.

There are 40 steps up to the apartment, so plan your shopping so you don't have to carry too much up (by the way, there is even a cold box with gel blocks for the freezer - told you they'd thought of everything). There is a Spar supermarket close by which is adequate, and 2 other reasonable supermarkets in the area. But for shopping you need to be in Tavira, which is just a 5 minute drive (en route you will pass a China shopping emporium - go in and see what they have - massive selection of everything apart from food)

Just as you get into Tavira there is a Continente supermarket which is in a massive shopping mall. They've got everything. Also there is the local municipal market (meat, fish and vegetables) Further into Tavira there is a Lidl store and an Aldi store.

Tavira is a charming town on the banks of a river. We visited it often. Good restaurants, bars and artisan shops. Might be worth a trip on the sight-seeing train. About 45 minutes and at least it showed you where not to bother to go.

Would highly recommend this apartment.
