We have just returned home to Canada after a beautiful 17 day visit to southern Portugal. Tavira and Casa Asseca were the highlights of our trip. This stunning two bedroom house could not be more wonderfully appointed or in a better location for visting Tavira and environs. Renovated in 2015 and expertly looked after by Emma and Ingeburg from Casa Servico, a property management firm within walking distance of the house, Casa Asseca is a dream home come true. We enjoyed preparing seafood suppers with fresh produce from the local market and then enjoying the wonderful dinner views from the balcony overlooking the Gilau river and Roman bridge. The views of Tavira, the Roman Bridge, amazing birdlife from Casa Asseca’s kitchen level terrace and rooftop terrace are stunning. The house is in a great location: cafes, restaurants, free car parking, the ferries to the Ilha de Tavira beaches are all in easy walking distance. Nothing is more than a 5 minute stroll away. Many thanks to Emma and Ingeburg for the great customer service. We hope to return to Casa Asseca next year. Thank you, Heather & Brent, Montreal.

Superb accommodation and location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for six weeks through September till October. Absolutely adored it. Big, bright, spotlessly clean and slap bang in the middle of town. Brilliant balcony and terrace. Loved having meals on the balcony and listening to the music from the Roman Bridge and the Square. In fact, booked for five weeks next year! One suggestion, and in no way a criticism, perhaps a voile curtain on the kitchen door. Skimpy togs in the morning and at night don't go well with the big glass door. However, will take a light dressing gown next year. Highly recommend it!

House close to the Roman Bridge

  • 5 of 5

For the second consecutive year in the first week of August we were in the house of Asseca. From the beginning we loved it, the house is excellent, is very well equipped, with a sober decor and tastefully as well as being very well looked after. The space is great for a family of 4 people. It is very well located, right in the city center and very close to the Roman bridge, it has a balcony and a terrace with an absolutely fabulous view. The location allows access to all restaurants, shops, market, historic district .For who leads the car access to main roads are quite affordable. We have made contact with Emma that is very affordable and concerned with the welfare of the guests. Next year we will be there !!

Luxury Self-Catering in an Idyllic Setting

  • 5 of 5

Casa da Asseca far exceeded our expectations! Even better than the pics! A fabulous space in the most convenient, and beautiful location... within minutes of the most highly rated (and very reasonably priced) restaurants. The property was larger and airier than we expected with high ceilings and decent size rooms, and immaculate to the core. It could not have been cleaner. So easy to get to the beach by ferry down the river, but the roof top accommodated those super lazy days for basking in the sun. Waking up in the most comfortable bed to views of the river was positively blissful. And having the opportunity to observe the various wildlife (fish, crabs, numerous breeds of birds, bats, etc.) throughout the day and night was exhilarating. We spent hours just relaxing, and sampling local produce, on the lower deck (great super market a short walk away) with amazing views. I actually hesitated about writing a good review as want this place to always available to us :) Many thanks are due to Emma for making our stay so pleasant, and through assisting us with transportation. We hope to stay again in the not too distant future.

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

This really is a lovely apartment, comfortable, clean, well equipped (great bathroom and kitchen), quiet and a truly delightful location right on the river looking onto the Roman Bridge. The pictures give some idea but the best is breakfast and/or evenings on the terrace, watching swallows turn into bats as the moon rises over the Bridge, the fresh, open aspect, air conditioning in the bedroom (it was getting hot after 20th June), and just absorbing the atmosphere. We were completely able to relax, loved the ferry journey to the beaches, but equally loved getting to know beautiful Tavira. We had Fado, Tavira Fiesta, markets, (particularly recommend the Saturday evening market with it's artisan stalls) beautiful weather, bird watching and of course the choice of superb beaches. Lovely people, beautiful language, and great bars and restaurants - check out Bistro O Porto just by the beach ferry for great vegan/vegetarian and Bar Pessoa just along from the apartment. Thank you to Emma and the Team at Casa Servico, and Tavira, for a truly wonderful holiday!
