a lovely week

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our week in Tavira and the transport provided by Vasvi was a bonus.

Casa Branca is an attractive, clean and spacious house with a well equipped kitchen.

The best thing about the house is it's superb location, so handy for everything, but in a peaceful neighbourhood.

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

I travelled here with my wife and her family. For 4 adults this was a great place to stay with easy access to everything. Tavira is a wonderful place and I the accommodations added to our enjoyment of the location. The host is very accommodating and was willing to open up for me very late at night due to a late flight and also took the time to show me the apartment and give some helpful tips. I would definitely recommend and will return to this apartment.

Excellent 3 bed townhouse. Rooms well furnished and equipped, clean throughout, central location

  • 5 of 5

Well equipped centrally located 3 bed townhouse very pleased with the property for our holiday. Brilliant air con throughout, which is needed when Algarve temperature rises. Great location for access to minimarkets, restaurants and the river ferry to Ihle de Tavira sandy beach. Peaceful at night and during the day. Owner in contact with us during our stay and met by caretaker on arrival. Had breakfast outside every day on patio set, had crabs and prawns for tea on several occasions great holiday property for a relaxed Portugese holiday. Well recommended and big thanks to Ann for renting it to us.

Compact 3 bedroom house. Very clean, good location. Winding stairs need to take care on them.

  • 4 of 5

Tavira is a lovely town lots to do. House v clean and has everything you need. Loved the beach and town. Very friendly place with great cultural evening entertainment. We hired bikes and cycled though probably bit too hot in August. Running around the salt marshes in the evening was wonderful. Beaches clean and well managed. No need for a car.

My only feedback is the outside space. There is a lovely place to sit and eat outside but you have cars parked right up next to the table and your front door. Probably to be expected a parking is at a premium.
