There is an alternate ferry service from 2km down river which runs all year.
There are excellent golf courses within 5 to 10 minutes drive from the accommodation. The closest are Benamor, Quinta da Ria and Quinta da Cima, Monte Rei.
A car is not at all essential. Tavira offers plenty of local entertainment and places of interest.
Car rental, taxi transfers and bicycle hire can be organized with local reputable firms in advance or by calling the local representative. The accommodation is suitable for children, taking in account that there are two flights of stairs.
There is a cot and high chair provided. Please let us know if you have any other requirements.
This is a centrally located townhouse with close proximity to neighbours, restaurants, late-licenced bars and shops. Tavira skyline is like a patchwork of close knit terraces and rooftops, which can be overlooked… adding to the character and experience of town life!
Casa Joaquim is easily accessible by bus, train and by car. The entrance has a traditional ‘porta da reixa’ gridded door leading from the street.
This is a mostly residential area though there are some cafés and late-licenced bars on the street to the back of the house.
Ashtrays are provided for smoking outside the property.
Due to the possibility of guests being allergic to animal hair, we would rather not allow pets.
