Why Scott Wise chose Tavira region

I spent a week travelling from Western Spain through to Portugal. Bought this from new because of its high quality specification and the magical location of Cabanas.

What makes this apartment unique

Great location with a lot of traditional charm, South facing, Superb restaurants, Very friendly people, Amazing beach, Great pools and Ideal location to explore wider afield either wthin Algarve or only 20 minutes to Spain.

Location

Car: not necessary

Walking distance from main train line that runs to Faro, driving from Faro takes about 40 minutes.

Cabanas is an ideal base for exploring the Algarve with regular train and bus services.

Faro: The region's capital boasts some splendid monuments - the Cathedral, the Convent of Nossa Senhora da Assuncao, and some extremely interesting museums such as the Museu Infante Dom Henrique and the Museu Etnografico.

Lagos: Lagos was formerly the capital of the southern part of the Iberian Peninsula, and was the last port before the Portuguese caravelas set off for their long sea journeys, during the great Discoveries of the 16th century.

Monchique: Wander amongst the charming townhouses, clustered on the hillside, discover the wealth of little churches and stop for a refreshing break at the nearby Monchique Spa.

Portimao: In this fishermen's town, a visit to the main church and the Town Hall is a must. Just outside the town, you cannot miss the bustling Praia da Rocha, but do not forgo the lesser-known Roman ruins of Abicada.

Sagres: Five centuries ago here in Sagres, Prince Henry the Navigator founded the Navigation College, essential to the Portuguese Discoveries and seafaring future.

Tavira: Apart from the irresistible golden beaches nearby, Tavira itself is authentically and vividly picturesque with its views over the River Gilao and its Roman bridge.

Vilamoura: The Algarve's main bustling resort is where it really all happens: beaches, marina, bars, restaurants, shopping arcades, casino, innumerable hotels, several golf course, riding centre, tennis courts and shooting range.

Zoomarine: A breathtaking fun-filled sea-world park, with dolphins, seals, sharks

Nice apartment and well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay in very well equipped, comfortable and clean apartment. Only limitations of any significance to us was lack of sun beds to use by pool or at apartment (balcony not large enough). We used towels on grass areas near pool to sunbathe. General location is quiet and convenient to front and shops although you will get church bells nearby ringing on hour and half hour from 9am till 8pm which we found charming and unobtrusive. Very good cafe nearby with wifi. Restaurant is good as well. Would be more than happy to return to apartment.

Fantastic Getaway in the Algarves!

  • 5 of 5

Great location, lovely apartment! Had everything you wound need for a great visit to the Algarves region! Apartment was very clean, secure and well equipped. The only thing missing was wifi... but that is available at short 50 metres away at a restaurant. We had our own vehicle so, it was very easy to get around. Short walk to beach and boardwalk. Pools were clean and relaxing. Jeff and Wendy (managers forbScott) were very helpful with key exchange and tip fro things to do and good restaurant. I would definitely recommend this accommodation and would not hesitate to stay there again if, we are ever in the region!

great house, village, beach, people

  • 5 of 5

family of four

we stayed for nine nights and everything was perfect.

The house is fully equiped, even has beach equipment. there's AC in every room. and the pools where clean.

Either to eat in or to go to a restaurant you'll find everything at walking distance.

Cabanas de Tavira is a very nice village and also near to visit other interesting sites and beaches.

The owner was very helpfull and quick to respond to our demand. Also the couple that received us at Cabanas was very friendly and helpfull.

just positives nothing negative to point

definitively a place we'll be returning.

Lovely apartment in lovely area.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was great for our needs, it had everything we could have needed and more!!! It's spacious, clean and in a lovely neighbourhood. The local coffee shop just a few metres away is a must and very popular with the locals and the coffee is very good.The church across the road is beautiful and there is a real sense of community in the area. I really felt like I experienced true Portugal staying in Cabanas, the waterfront with its cafes/shops and resturants is a beautiful area and the people could not be more helpful, the food in the resturants for an evening meal is delicious and we ate some of our best food in these places. Cabanas beach is beautiful and the ride in the water taxis just adds to the experience.

We did quite a lot of exploring by car, so the area was in a great location for this, with Spain not fair away and lots of interesting, cute, pretty beaches and villages in between.

All in all a fabulous holiday I can't believe we have never been to Portugal before and we will definitely be back!!!

Thank you Scott for use of your lovely home

SPACIOUS, COSY, QUITE, HOME FROM HOME.

  • 5 of 5

The Apartment is ideal for both couples and families alike. We had booked the apartment and was thrilled that a driver had been organised to pick us up from the airport to the apartment. The apartment was vary spacious with all the luxuries of home. Just a short walk from the shops selling fresh fish, and restaurants which we enjoyed. So sad to have come home.
