Services include: Meet and Greet service at the Villa on your day of arrival to show you around and and answer any questions.

She will check you out on departure, collect the keys and refund your security deposit. Check out is at 1200 unless otherwise arranged.

Car Hire: Most of the usual car-hire companies are represented at Faro Airport. However, for best rates, we favour a small local company called Algarve Rent a Car based in Almancil on +351 289 395 316. Their representative will meet you at Faro Airport and your car will be waiting in the car park just across the road from the Terminal. When booking, please be sure to use the correct web address because there are others with very similar names! All enquiries can be addressed to info@algarverent-a-car and for preferential rates, remember to tell Alexandre Santos that your booking has come through the Villa owner, Roger Price, in Tavira. If you need to top up the fuel tank on departure, there is a convenient filling station on the roundabout just as you enter the Airport.

Please note that since Jan 2015, all Rental Properties in Portugal must comply with approved Safety and Fire Regulations and to display an identification plate next to the front entrance. This property is registered with Tavira Municipal Council under Licence no 7686/AL.

About Roger Price

Living in England and a retired Airline pilot, I have travelled all over the world but always love coming back to Portugal. We spent a long time looking for our ideal property and we have never changed our mind about this Villa. We come here mainly in the Spring and Autumn, leaving the Peak Season free for our guests.

Just to avoid any confusion, the above is all about me but the Villa is managed on my behalf by Angie Graham, who lives close by and her number (with the +351 prefix) is the best one to use. And sometimes emails go astray so if you don't here back from us within 24 hrs, please try again.

Roger Price purchased this villa in 2007

Why Roger Price chose Tavira

First of all, Tavira is such a wonderful location. It is a working town which means there is always something going on, Summer and Winter. It is not as busy or glitzy as Albufeira or Villamoura but there is still plenty to do, particularly if you like golf.

Being so far South, the skies are always clear and they say there are 300 days of sunshine every year. You are also fairly close to the Spanish border, and is not much more than an hours drive to the beautiful City of Seville.

It takes a bit of effort to get to the main beach on Ilha da Tavira, with ferries running from downtown (10 mins) or the main jetty at the other end of the salt flats (5 min) and for this reason, it is always relatively quiet. The sea is clear (if a bit on the cold side) and the beaches spotless, washed by the Atlantic currents.

One of the best bits is its proximity to the town, far enough away to miss all the noise but close enough to walk. It only takes only 10 mins to walk into town which means everyone can enjoy themselves and no-one has to drive.

As for the town, there are numerous restaurants and bars and tiny tucked-away cafes and shops. Not necessarily what the kids will want but great for the adults.

The Villa is now 10 years old but it doesn't look it. A striking modern design and particularly well equipped. We strive to keep it in tip-top condition and if anything goes wrong during your stay, we shall do our utmost to get it fixed without causing you any inconvenience.

What makes this villa unique

Close enough to town ... yet far enough away.

Ample terraces where you can always catch the sun, morning or afternoon.

Secluded rear garden and secure for small kids

Particularly lovely Western balcony where you can watch the sun go down with a glass of wine in your hand.

Lovely sheltered pool for a cooling swim in the heat of the day

Secluded gated community means parking is never a problem

And best of all, Angie is always on hand to make your holiday special.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lovely villa, very spacious and close to the town

  • 4 of 5

In the lead up to our stay, we had great communication from Angie, who was extremely helpful with all the queries I had.

The villa is in a gated street, with ample parking, and was easy enough to find, with Angies directions. The villa is very spacious and has living room, dining area, and large kitchen, with dining spaces outside at the front and rear of the property too. Ample air conditioning throughout the property if you need it. There is a helpful folder with instructions for appliances throughout the property.

We used the pool a few times, but it was a little chilly in late Sept despite it being a very pleasant 28 degrees.

The villa is a leisurely 10 minute walk into Tavira for the restaurants and shops. The walk does involve walking along a busy road, which is our only drawback, as we had our 8 month old in a pram.

Overall, a great 7 night stay, and knowing Angie was available if we needed anything. She even met me the day after we checked out because I had left items in the wardrobe!

Family holiday

  • 4 of 5

We loved this villa with it having so many different balconies and areas, there was space for each of the family. It was equipped with all you need for your stay, we mainly had breakfast in the villa and ate out as there are so many good restaurants to choose from in Tavira. The kids loved the pool. Great base, we had a day at the Aqua Water Park and a day at Fueseta Beach enjoying a meal at the BBQ and a day at Barril beach, week went in too quickly.

Superb Villa in Tavira

Modern villa, well equipped, immaculately clean. Excellent location, just close enough to the Town for an easy walk but far enough away for a peaceful environment. Many thanks to Angie for making it all run so smoothly. Will be back!

Excellent, spacious Villa

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful, well equipped villa. All rooms are spacious with plenty of storage. Don't need to worry about anything, games, floats, goggles for the pool etc all there. Hairdryer in each bedroom - and good fast ones too. Fabulous air conditioning too.

Plenty of outdoor space - several spacious balconies, back garden and the lovely pool area at the front - a definite winner with the children.

Located close to the centre of Tavira and the best restaurants. It truly is only a 10 minute walk.

Couldn't have asked for better. Thank you for letting us stay, truly enjoyable.

We have just returned home after a wonderful holiday! The villa is well appointed, clean and spacious. Furniture and fittings are of a high standard as was the cleanliness of the property. The gardens and pool area provided hours of amusement for the children, the inflatables an added bonus.The spaciousness of the property allowed everyone to enjoy some space. Angie was very welcoming and took time to explain the features of the property, thank you . We loved returning to Tavira and sharing the experience with our daughter, her partner and children. The bird life on the marshes was fantastic, seeing a flock of flamingo in flight was spectacular. We enjoyed a trip to the fish and general produce market in Olhao, excellent lamb chops.Also a good experience for the children to see real fruit and veg rather than the well manicured of English supermarkets! Ethan aged 7 summed it up, 'the bestest holiday ever'. I think the gelato shop in town was a big hit too!

Asheville's review

  • 5 of 5

I was prompted to respond to the wholly erroneous review by the above who only gave the property two stars. We stayed here last July and found everything to be exceptional. Angie was very helpful whenever we needed help, which wasn't often, and throughout the whole booking process. The furnishings were of a high standard and the beds very comfortable. Regarding a car, we had one, which was invaluable for bulk shopping from an out-of town supermarket, so I would have to agree that one is desirable but not essential as the walk into town only takes ten or fifteen minutes. Once you are over the busy road, the walk is very pleasant with a great bakery and cafe en route. A car is also invaluable to get to the fabulous beaches to the east of the town, past Cabanas. Tavira itself is wonderful for a host of reasons.

I would love to come back and would certainly choose this property.

Owner's Response: What a pleasure to receive such a glowing review! We were shocked by the "Asheville" review from April 2014 because we have never had any feedback like that and with hand on heart, it was not justifiable and also difficult to defend. But I hope that all the comments we have had since have now put that to rest. We love Tavira, the town, the beaches, the ambience etc. and it is hard to imagine what is not to like about the place - unless you are after bright lights and night clubs, which you will not find. We always listen to our guest comments and strive to keep everything up to scratch. Most of this is down to Angie, who manages and maintains the Villa for us and if you met her you would understand this. So thanks Angie And thanks again Malcolm for your review, please come back and see us soon!

Ilha de Tavira
Car: recommended

There is something for everyone in the charming, historic town of Tavira. The villa is a just a 10 minute walk from the town centre with its many shops, bars restaurants and sights. The wonderfully secluded local beaches on the Ilha de Tavira are reached by a short boat ride from the town. Close by are the magnificent golf courses of Benamor, Quinta de Ria and Castro Marim (discounts available) and Esturi (30 min away in Spain). Boats leave the pier for deep-sea fishing all along the Algarve coast. Plus many other activities, places of interest and museums. In nearby Luz de Tavira there are fine examples of Manueline art and the Roman mosaics of Torre de Aves. Magnificent Seville is only 90 min away by car.

A car is recommended if you want to to make the most of all that Tavira has to offer, but since the Villa is located just a short 10 mins walk from the centre of town, a car is not essential.

Golf: Golf at Benamor (10 mins), Quinta da Ria/Quinta de Cime (15 mins) and Castro Marim (25 mins) may be booked through East Algarve Rentals at preferential rates. Other convenient golf courses are Esturi (just over the border into Spain (30 min) and the spectacular new Monte Rei Golf and Country club (20 mins), heralded as 'the most exclusive and cosmopolitan development in the Algarve' and set in 1000 acres of beautiful countryside between Tavira and Vila Real de Santo Antonio.
