LOCATION

Tavira, once known as the capital of the Algarve stands proud amongst Portuguese history books and you will not fail to be enthralled by it's unspoilt charm, character and tranquility. As you wander along the cobbled streets, you'll see an abundance of history. A Roman bridge links the 2 parts of the town across the River Gilao, its sides decorated with traditional old bars and restaurants, there are many churches (37 in total!) to view, along with the town castle, several monuments and the typical fisherman's harbour leading to the River Formosa Natural Park. There is a wonderful daily market selling fresh home grown produce and a wide selection of fish. During the high season, horse drawn carriages and a small train operate around the town and are perfect for seeing all the sights and experiencing the peaceful ambience

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Local Beach: Ilha de Tavira (Tavira Island)

The Algarve is famous for its wonderful sandy beaches and the Island of Tavira is no exception. As a natural island separated from the mainland by the River Formosa, it is reached by catching a ferry from a designated point in the harbor. A excellent range of facilities is offered including beach bars, fish restaurants, Portuguese cuisine, pizza restaurant to name but a few. Also for hire are sunbeds and shades and together, these ingredients give a wonderful tropical holiday atmosphere amongst white sandy beaches and the rolling Atlantic Ocean akin to the Caribbean! There are a number of other beautiful beaches that we can also recommend such as Barill, Manta Rota and Praia Verde.

OTHER THINGS TO SEE AND DO

Tavira itself is primarly a town for sight-seeing, dining and relaxing, however, by travelling a little further afield there are a good range of things to do to suit all tastes. For nature lovers there are forest walks, cruises along the River Guadiana or nature trails along the Ria Formosa Reserve where bird watching is in abundance! By travelling towards the West there are some excellent shopping centres in Faro and Ghia as well as the famous Water Parks and Zoo Marine (wonderful for children), all easily reached by car (around 45 minutes) or by day trip coach. From this property it is easy to take a day trip to Spain.The Spanish border town of Ayamonte is approx 25kms by car, where the delights of another country can be sampled along with wine, Tapas and shopping. Ayamonte can also be reached by ferry from Vila Real. The vibrant city of Seville is about 170km away. As well as Tavira budding historians may enjoy Castro Marim castle.

GOLF

This is perfect accommodation for golfers wishing to sample the excellent courses situated in the Eastern Algarve. Within a 20km radius there are 6 courses to choose from. Benamor and the 2 Quintas (Ria and Cima) are the most popular and have fantastic scenery and sea views. The prestigious new Monte Rei course designed by Jack Nicklaus now has its first 18 holes open and is continuing in its development to the second phase offering the height of golfing luxury. Although a costly experience, this is a real treat for golfing fanatics wishing to experience a little high life! Travelling East to just before the Spanish Border, the challenging courses of Castro Marim and the Ballesteros Signature Course Quinta do Vale both come highly recommended. We can offer discounted rates and can organise a full golfing package with play at a selection of these courses, car hire and rental of this property. (Flights not included)

Paradise! The perfect holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous property, generously proportioned over two floors. Very clean and welcoming situated in a quiet residential area. We found the information booklet provided invaluable, providing not only details of the local services but also giving a wonderful insight into local history. Rachael from Smartvillas was very accommodating and even left her contact details should we require further assistance whilst in the property. Tavira itself was stunning, picture postcard in its beauty. There was a large selection of restaurants and pubs to eat catering for every palette. Our particular favourite was the Irish bar and also the small cafes alongside the market square serving anything from local cuisine through to Indian/American and British food. We loved the relaxing atmosphere with local musicians entertaining us in the square each day, the day trips to the beach via the ferry, the train trip around the town - something for everyone. Our first trip to Tavira - but definitely not our last! :)

We have visited the delightful town of Tavira on many occasions. Casa Josie is a spacious well equipped house situated in a lovely position overlooking the town towards the sea. The property has a good sized enclosed garden. Home from home!
