Amazing apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment in our opinion has one of the best positions in the village of Cabanas - right on the front with views of the boardwalk and sea.

The apartment was extremely well equipped providing beach towels, cool bag and sun umbrellas for the beach. It is well maintained by the owners, tastefully decorated and spacious.

The owners provided very good customer service throughout and were lovely people.

There is no need for car hire as we found the local taxi"s and trains to be easily accessible and cheap. We took the train to Albufera.

There is a good selection of bars and restaurants within a few minutes walk from the apartment to suit varying budgets. We particularly liked .Pedros.

We would highly recommend this apartment to anyone who is thinking of visiting this area of The Algrave which appeals to couples and families.

Splendid Everything

  • 5 of 5

This duplex is located at the far eastern side of Cabanas board walk. The living room over looks the beach area & the side balcony the Forte de Joao da Barra (old fort, now a b&b). The road out of Cabanas does run along the eastern side of the apartment however we did not experience any undue noise at any time of the day. We slept with the bedroom doors open and were sometimes woken during the night by the garbage collection vehicle - this was not a problem for us and could have been solved by sleeping with the doors closed and the aircon on.

As stated in many of the other reviews, the accommodation is very well appointed, it easily accommodates two couples and Bernard & Angelica are most welcoming. The aprtments many paintings and pictures are most interesting and the owners provided for all eventualities including a cool bag and umbrella for the beach!

On the lower level the duplex has a small balcony overlooking the fort which is ideal for breakfast &/or lunch. On the upper floor there is a roof balcony which is reached via either of the two bedrooms. You can take the afternoon sun on this balcony and provides a quite spot for an aperitif.

The apartment block itself is safe and well presented. It is just fifty yards to the ferry crosses the river estuary to the beach. The beach is spectacular and is just like a giant sand bar.

The walk along the modern board walk (which is raised) provides an easy amble along Cabanas sea front, pass many of the resorts restaurants, snack bars and small shops. On the board walk you will also find a number of kiosks offering boat trips to Tavira and parts of the Ria Formosa nature reserve.There is a small Spar shop which sells most things is within two hundred yards of the accommodation.

Whilst some may hire a car, it certainly is not needed as there is plenty of easy walking, a boat taxi or bus that will take you to Tavira and beyond. In addition there are a number of coach excursions available and we did take the trip to Seville which was most interesting.

Bernard's communication throughout the booking process was excellent and both Cabanas and the duplex are highly recommended.

Beautiful and cosy apartment

  • 5 of 5

The owners, Bernard and Angelica Maury are very friendly, welcoming and helpful. It was a very pleasant surprise to find at our arrival a plate full os croissants, orange marmalade, wine, fresh water plus all one could need to survive a first day without shopping (rice, cafe, tea, sugar, salt, olive oil, etc.)They speak three or four languages fluently giving us only the embarrassment of choice. The apartment is very well equipped, from air condition to spring clips, sun umbrellas, towels ans long chaise etc. It has a beautiful view, is very well organised and clean, nice colour and decoration, great paints, so cosy and so comfortable that one feels easily at home. Although very near to the promenade it is also very calm at night.The village itself is a very charming little place with all one can need, from pharmacies, take aways to good restaurants( typical home made cuisine as Restaurant Europa or a bit more sophisticated as A Fonte), snack bars, two small minimarkets if one doesn't want to loose time in Spar supermarket, a traditional Portuguese jewellery shop "Pe e mar", hairdresser and even manicure if one needs one. There is a variety of offers for sea trips and also a lot of boats to cross the Ria in order to go to the beach where you can find two bar-cafes, renting long chaise and even a massage tent. Near Cabanas there are also very nice llittle villages o visit.

We would recommend Cabanas especially to families with children because during the day there is the beach and at night one can have a walk and enjoy the carrosel,balons, godies, etc.

We surely come back! :-)

Absolutely beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend this home to everyone. It is spacious, spotlessly clean and Bernard and Angelica make you really welcome and the location couldn't be better. Cabanas was quiet with great restaurants. Food was inexpensive and consistently good wherever we went. I loved the little boats across to the beach and also a lovely speed boat ride to Tavira. I didn't want to come back to reality after my stay and hope to return again to this property in future.

Excellent vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed two weeks in this beautiful apartment. Everything was as promised, very clean, beautifully furnished and tastefully decorated. The view from the living room to the sea is magnificent.

This was our first time in Algarve and we were positively surprised. The people are so nice and helpful and most of them speak good English. The food in the restaurants is really beautiful and full of taste. The village of Cabanas is nice and rather quiet, a perfect place where it is easy to relax. But it’s also worthwhile visiting the neighbor villages and Ria Formosa. The nature is absolutely beautiful.

A special thanks to the owners, Bernard and Angelica for the warm welcome and the hospitality. We would definitely recommend.
