Bright Spacious Apartment, Quiet Central location
I was very impressed when we entered this apartment. It was bright spacious and well equipped. It is situated in a modern, gated, low rise development with well maintained communal areas and pool.
Tavira is a delightful town with dozens of cafes and restaurants a great place for wandering or people watching. The boat to the beach is a bonus, who doesn't enjoy a scenic boat trip.
The property managers of the apartment were helpful, friendly and efficient.
I enjoyed my holiday so much i have booked this apartment again for later in the year.
Relaxing time in Tavira
Rachel from Smartvillas brought us to the property. Its spacious and ideal for 2 people. It is right in the centre of town, close to the beach ferry and has a pool. Smartvillas leave an orientation guide which is super, Rachel was also extremely helpful and informative.
Only 2 minor downsides...
The apartment faces the sun for most of the day so the small terrace gets quite hot....but there is a lovely bar run by an elderly couple on the way to the Vila Gale hotel for a shaded drink...its just 20mts away.
We could have done with a linen change half way through, or at least a change of linen, but it has a washing machine so bring some washing tabs with you, everything drys very quickly.
In summary would stay again, has excellent wifi and a lot of English language TV.
Thanks for a super trip
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
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.
