Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Conceicao de Faro

A self catering rental with easy access to beach and golf in romantic Algarve.

SUMMER SPECIALS AVAILABLE NOW !

Our luxury penthouse apartment offers year round holiday rentals in the sun on a self-catering basis. Choose to soak up the sun on our huge roof-top solarium or play a game of golf at local courses, your time in the sun will be most enjoyable. We have furnished our apartment to a luxury standard and there is enough room to sleep 6. The local golden sandy beach will appeal to families and for golfers no fewer than 15 top courses are within an easy drive. For those wanting to experience the culture that the Algarve has to offer but wish to be away from the crowds of the western areas of the Algarve, our location at Cabanas is perfect. The nearby town of Tavira boasts many shops and many inexpensive top class restaurants to cater for families or that long romantic meal for couples. The hot summer months and mild winters offer you a year round rental opportunity to good to miss.

Nearby areas of interest - TAVIRA: The town has since been rebuilt with many fine 18th Century buildings along with its 37 churches - in fact it is referred to as the town of churches! The town church of Misericórdia dates back to 1541 and Palácio de Galeria is a location of historical interest besides being a cultural centre. A Roman bridge links the two parts of the town across the River Gilão. The church of Santa Maria do Castelo is built on the site of a Mosque and in it are the tombs of Dom Paio Peres Correia and his seven faithful Knights.. The areas around are still rural and have not been spoilt by over development. The immediate beach for this town lies past the salt pans and is reached by a ferryboat.

Copa Cabanas Holiday Apartment Review

  • 5 of 5

We totally loved the apartment and its location, which was close to shops, bars, restaurants and only a 15 mins walk to the wonderful sandy beach of Cabanas. The kids also loved the swimming pool, as they were in it for most of the day!!! The apartment was perfect and nicely laid out. We particularly liked the large terrace off the lounge and master bedroom, where we ate our breakfast and sometimes lunch. However the view from the roof top terrace while eating dinner and sunbathing during the day was truly stunning.

Thank you for your help and advice and we will definitely be returning again to Copa Cabanas next year.

Kind Regards: Tom Richards & Family

Owner's Response: Thanks Tom for your kind words. We are thrilled that you liked Copa Cabanas and the beautiful surrounding area of Cabanas & Tavira itself. We agree wholeheartedly that the roof top terrace is the place to be. We look forward to seeing you back next year - a warm welcome awaits you.

perfect sunshine getaway

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was bright, spacious and spotlessly clean with excellent outdoor space. Was modern and well maintained and equipped with everything you could possibly need for a holiday. Sun terrace was amazing with lovely views out to sea. Pool area was well maintained and clean with plenty of sun beds and was never overly busy. Apartment was about a 5 minute walk to the train station and a 15/20 minute walk to the seafront. Supermarket and more local café/bars about a 5 minute walk away. All in all a lovely quiet apartment away from the bustle of the promenade but near enough for a nice stroll to all the amenities of the town.

Phil the owner was extremely pleasant to deal with. Always replied promptly to emails throughout the booking process and provided lots of useful information. Jane and Steve who met us on arrival and showed us around the apartment were also very pleasant and helpful and only a phone call away if there were any problems (which there weren’t). We often holiday in Cabanas and will definitely check if Phil’s apartment is available for our next visit.

Owner's Response: Sharon knew what she was looking for, as she has stayed in Cabanas many times before, however she had never stayed at our Copa Cabanas Apartment until now. We are glad that they enjoyed their stay at our luxury penthouse apartment and everything was to their taste and expectation, including the warm sunny Cabanas weather. Both Sharon & Mark were a lovely couple and really fell in love with our roof top terrace, which has spectacular views of the ocean and the Algarve Mountains. The Roof Top Terrace is Great for both sun bathing during the day and then dining in the evening, as you can watch the sunset over the Algarve Mountains whilst enjoying a glass or two of Portuguese wine. Thank you Sharon & Mark for your honest and lovely review of our apartment and we look forward to welcoming you back in the near future :)

La playa una maravilla, el apartamento lejos de el

  • 3 of 5

Está bien, pero no tanto. Esta lejos de la playa. La terraza está bien, pero en verano hace demasiado calor, solo la pudimos usar algunas noches.

El apartamento es amplio y equipado con lo necesario. Se echa en falta la conexión a internet.

La información turística que se suponía había en el apartamento era escasa o nula (casi todo información del campo de golf).

Lo bueno de la zona es que la playa estaba muy chula, aunque tienes que contar con coger el barco que traspasa la ría de Formosa, luego a 200 metros puedes encontrar una playa salvaje y sin apenas gente (en pleno Agosto).

Copa Cabanas

  • 5 of 5

If you want a relaxing holiday look no further!

The apartment is clean, well equipped and the roof top terrace is a real bonus. There are a number of local restaurants and the supermarket is 5 minutes walk away. You have to catch a water taxi to get to the beach but it is worth it. If you want to do something more energetic the water park in Lagos is only an hour away and Seville two hours away in a car. Both Grant and his management team in Portugal did everything they could to make our holiday run smoothly. Thanks again

A wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

We've been having family vacations in this region of Algarve for the last 3 years and this is the 5th house we rented. It's certainly one of the best. The apartment is well furnished and well taken care of. The appliances are of good quality and all working well. The service was generally good and the owners were always very nice and eager to help.

As for the Algarve, it's not a surprise for us. Be sure to enjoy the beaches (from Cabanas to Monte Gordo) and take a chance in exploring the interior. There are a lot of beautiful places to be discovered (try Tavira, Alcoutim, Castro Marim and further north the beautiful Mértola).

Owner's Response: Thank You for your kind words, we are delighted your stay was to your satisfaction. Location of Copa Cabanas is ideal as you can stay local and enjoy the historic town of Tavira or simply the waterfront at Cabanas. Within 30 minutes drive you can reach the Central Algarve with Vilamoura & Alburferia constant favourites. Just to the East is the border with Spain and the beautiful town of Ayemonte. To us, the beaches are simply the best, clean and uncrowded. Why not come long and explore this most beautiful region.

Cabanas
Car: recommended

Cabanas resides on the doorstep to the Ria Formosa nature reserve and this offers a rural and peaceful backdrop. Beautiful wide golden sandy beaches ideal for families are abound and offer safe bathing. Along the Cabanas beach promenade, you will find a selection of shops bars and restaurants to choose from. If Golf is your passion, you are spoilt with an array of top class golf courses, the nearest being a short five minute walk from the apartment and a further two golf courses less than a 5 minute drive away. Further shopping facilities are available in Tavira, a short 5 minute drive away or catch the train to Tavira from the nearby Cabanas train station. You can even continue on the train journey to Faro and enjoy a day of designer Shopping at the very popular Faro shopping mall, which contains many shops and restaurants together with a multiplex cinema.

Golf: The Algarve … a mere two or three hours flight from most European capitals and because of its unique conditions for tourism, its diversified quality and the geographical concentration of its courses, it makes the Algarve region one of Europe’s main, sought after, top class golf destinations. In fact the Algarve was voted Best Golfing destination in the World last year.

The Algarve golf courses are equipped with all facilities that are needed for playing golf, making the sport one of the region’s highlights. None of the existing golf courses is more than 15 km from the coast. The Algarve's mild climate and low humidity are the delight of golfers from all over the world, who come to play golf on the Algarve golf courses all year round.
