Scott Wise purchased this apartment in 2006
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.
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.
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!
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.
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
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.
The Apartment was very well equipped clean and well maintained.We would certainly recommend this property and indeed we are looking to return again next year.The resort had a very relaxed feel about it and the restaurants provided excellent value for money with a warm friendly service.This was our first visit to Cabanas and hopefully not our last.
First of all I would say the Apartment was perfect. Very nice, clean, fully equipped, Two bedrooms, nice big sitting room/dinner with open plan kitchen. Just about right for my wife, me, and my Two teenage lads. The photo showing the pool is a bit misleading as the pool is actually in the middle of another block, not the apartment block we were in. Never the less, it was just around the corner and across the road. The only thing I would say is, there are no sun beds or umbrellas allowed by the pool and the water was freezing, what you see in the photo is what you get!!
That is in my opinion the only small disappointment, other than that, we had a perfect holiday.
A five min walk to the seafront where you can find lots of great restaurants serving the freshest fish you can get, or most things you fancy. You have to get the water taxi to go over the lagoon to the beach itself, which is fun! The beach is fantastic, the longest, fine sandy beach I have ever seen.
As I said, we all had a fantastic holiday and I would recommend this property to anyone who was looking for a holiday in the Algarve..
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
