Tavira holiday house rental - Late availability & last minute bookings welcome. This Tavira town centre holiday home is ideal for a relaxing self catering holiday, a real home from home, dealing direct with the owners. The riverside accommodation is very well equipped and in a quiet area of the town centre, and a one minute walk to the river, ferry to the beach, cafes, restaurants and supermarkets. Four Waters Cottage is fully licensed and restored to the highest standard. The private courtyard outside the lounge door contains the original chimney from the old kitchen, now converted to the best BBQ in town. The smoke disappears into the sky above! An outside utility room houses the washing machine, and up a little spiral staircase is the much loved conservatory, perfect for all year relaxing. Here you have UKTV, BBC radio, DVD & CD players, excellent internet and air conditioning. All these are repeated in the lounge area plus a large selection of books, film DVDs and music CDs. Internet in Portugal can be quite primitive, but the owners here have the very best Fibre Optic system.
The thick walled cottage is also fully insulated against the hot summer heat and any winter freshness, and fly/mosquito nets cover EVERY window and door. Some original features have been kept including the front window and shutters, plus of course the BBQ! The cottage is named after Tavira's 4 sided famous roofs (quatro aguas), and you can admire this feature from the cosy bedroom. The fully equipped kitchen includes a dishwasher and coffee machine.
A short distance away by foot is a takeaway serving good value traditional Portuguese cuisine, and the best BBQ chicken house still using charcoal is near the river. The public library is close by with UK newspapers and computers, and also nearby a private doctors is available 24 hrs a day.
The property is managed by the owners. In the past they have had other successfully let holiday properties. Their Stratford-upon-Avon town centre apartment was solidly booked for those "Shakespearean" holidays. The owners live across the river, and are always at the end of a quick phone call, text or e-mail meaning any issue/information needed will be attended to straight away. Some essential groceries are in the cupboard just in case of late arrivals, washed down with a complimentary bottle of wine. A welcome folder is waiting for all guests which includes useful information on local attractions and quick and easy instructions for every electrical item, plus other tips to help you enjoy your stay.
Come and enjoy Four Waters Cottage on a beautiful little cobbled road, one line back from the river and once described as the prettiest road in Tavira. Wedding photos are sometimes taken near the cottage. The owners bought the old house because of their frustration at the time of a lack of two persons accommodation, the choice was just big houses with most rooms not being used.
