We had a great time at the property, which is brilliantly located just by Tavira, immaculately clean inside and out and very well maintained. From greeting us on the day of arrival, the owners Ana and Paulo went out of their way to make everything comfortable for us - even posting our daughter's forgotten sunglasses afterwards! Tavira and this property in particularly are definitely recommended.
Everython just happend to be great: the helpful couple Ana&Paulo let us stay in the clean and cosy house. The salt-water pool was a dream and the whole enviroment was so natural and inviting.
We definitly would recommend our friends to stay there. Every day and night was a romantic party. There is enough space to do Yoga exercises on the roof or next the pool. The kitchen is very goot do use and we used the grill almost every night.
Get in contact with Ana&Paulo, they will help you with everything: shopping, doctors, culture and more.
I stayed in the smaller of the two apartments with my family. This villa is set in the countryside, surrounded by a large garden, just a couple of km from Tavira town. The place is wonderful, the decoration of the outside of the house is really tasteful, the swimming pool in front of the house is just great and to sit outside in the evening in front of the pool with the nice breeze blowing and the sound of crickets around you is a marvel that cannot be described. Ana and Paulo, the owners, are very nice and helpful. The inside of the apartment is EXTREMELY spacious, with a huge kitchen, a large living room, nice bedroom and nice bathroom. Furniture is nice, if only a little basic. A few very minor improvements in the furniture would just make it perfect (a wider twin bed, a newer sofa). The apartment is nice for 2 adults and a baby, if you have bigger children then I guess you should use the other apartment which is bigger. In any case if you plan to go to Tavira (and you have a car, of course) I strongly recommend this place for a nice and relaxing holiday, it's incomparably better than a hotel room downtown.
We had a lovely holiday at this villa, quiet & relaxing. I would highly recomend this villa for anyone looking for a relaxing holiday. The property is beautiful, clean and well-maintained. The pool is great and the surroundings/gardens are very pretty. The owner provided a very good service and the weather was fantastic during the whole of our stay.
