About The Owner

This was our home for 4 happy years. We are now back to UK.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2008

Why The Owner chose Tavira

I fell in love with Tavira 10 years ago and bought this property as our holiday home. We then decided to move in and lived there for 4 years. So the apto has the "home feeling". Tavira is one of the most beautiful town in the Algarve, according to many tourist books and the favourite destination for the Portuguese and Spanish. People who goes to Tavira often go back year after year. The gastronomy is based on grilled fish and meat with many different fish stews called cataplana. Very tasty!

What makes this apartment unique

- Best beaches in the world - white sand and green blue water;

- Much Calmer and less costly than western Algarve;

- At least 300 days of sun and blue sky a year;

- Clean and well look after town with various beautiful gardens;

- Great food

Superb for Our Requirements

  • 5 of 5

Having visited Portugal 15+ times and sometimes staying with relations in Barranca da Nora north of Tavira.This was our first attempt at a holiday with my wife having had the problem of a full left leg amputation.This owing to medical mismanagement.Pam found the description of this property could fill the needs of a much-needed break.Flat court yard with wheel chair access to the lower level.The apartment lived up to the description given by its owners Claudia and Jonathan.

Comfortable outside furniture.King size double bed.Second twin bedroom with plenty of room to spread all our necessary luggage.Well appointed kitchen with every conceivable extra from crockery to a fridge freezer that actually worked correctly.All doors and wardrobes of a quality standard.The bathroom with built in grab rail on bath wall thoughtful.T.Vs,although we had so many people to see were there if desired.Air conditioning available.Not needed for this time of year.

Property close to the centre.Quiet at this time of year but we made many friends in the complex.Domingos and Olga on site to handle any maintenance issues.Even the African grey parrot in the second floor apartment opposite kept us amused with its banter.

So,a lovely apartment for any couple.Could even charge the motorised scooter from an extension cable to the wall on the yard.A definite plus property for anyone with mobility issues.Only returned on Tuesday September 19th.

Would we hire it again? Just booked again for a longer period next May.Superb.

Perfect from start to finish! Communication with Johnathan and Claudia was great. It was important to them that we should have the best holiday and all that we needed in their apartment. All was just as described in the listing. Central location, close to the ferry to go to Isla de Tavira ❤️, lots of cafes, bars and restaurants serving fresh fish and wonderful local dishes. There is a close community feeling there and you can't help but feel part of it. The railway station isn't far to walk to for little day trips. We don't want to drive whilst on holiday so walking everywhere within Tavira is easy whether shopping or exploring around the cobbled streets soaking up the history. The walk through the salt marshes to 'Quatro Aquas' is lovely and you can often spot flamingos, stalks and different kinds of birds wading. I love Tavira and will look forward to returning many times, hopefully staying in this pleasant and spacious apartment.

Just beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed for 12 weeks in this apartment. It is fully equipped. Kitchen has all the appliances you'll need, the dining area is suitable for families or dinner parties and the wardrobes in the bedrooms are more than big enough. Definitely a feeling of spaciousness.

It is very near the town centre, shops, restaurants and bars but far enough away so it's quiet and relaxing. Very tastefully and comfortably furnished. Most holidaymakers joined me on the terrace because the terrace furniture was so comfortable. Good security in the form of a coded gate (Tavira is a very safe place but this just gave added peace of mind). Wifi works very well and it's good to be able to watch English speaking TV occasionally. The pool is a very welcome addition, nice for cooling down on those long hot days.

The owners were lovely and ensured that everything was as it should be. As I was there for a while, they contacted me occasionally just to check.

About 5 minutes walk from the Isla Tavira boat.

What more can I say? Tavira is an amazing place in the Algarve, unspoilt and friendly. This apartment puts you right at the centre of it all.

Some good walks in the area. Very reasonably priced train or bus to Faro. Some outstanding restaurants in the town, a very good wine bar on the banks of the river and two good Irish bars. There are also regular music events in the town square. Feel quite 'homesick' thinking of it all.

  • 5 of 5

I spend three wonderful months in this apartment. It has the feeling of home and is very well equipped. The Wifi was excellent, the family who own it could not have been more obliging. The location of this condo could not be better, right in the centre of Tavira.

The cleaner they recommend could not have been better.

Great central apartment

  • 5 of 5

A lovely large apartment within an immaculate secure gated complex complete with pool and childrens park area .We were there a week and saw the cleaners twice cleaning the outdoor area including the patio area of our apartment.The apartment is very spacious and well kept and has everything that you need .We went in April- chilly in the morning but after lunch time it has really warmed enough to have a siesta in the sunshine on Claudia and Jonathon's 'VERY comfortable patio furniture! Claudia and Jonathon were lovelyand handover went smoothly . The apartment is 5 - 10 mins walk away from the ferry to the island and to restaurants and the main square which often has things on unfortunately we missed it though saw the tents etc up.The Irish pub across the river had good food at great prices and we took to having a night cap at Youngs just across from the square.All in all we had a great time and will be back and would we stay at this apartment?..Most definitely!!!
