Why Pauline Evans chose Tavira

We fell in love with Tavira and spent three years trying to find a suitable second home.

Then we discovered Casa Nautica ! It is in the historic area of Tavira .

What makes this house unique

Ideally situated in a central location for shops restaurants. ferry to the beach, local fish and produce market

We also loved the quirky nautical theme of the house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Everything we required was there and although we didn't cook there was so much equipment had we wanted to. Fabulous house. Very envious. Taveira is charming.

We found some lovely restaurants, visited the castle, palace, museum and several churches. Took a boat trip from Santa Luzia, taxi to Cabasna (whatever its called) twice to Taveira beach and once to Barrill beach. Went by bus to Faro and another day to Real Santa Antonio. Saw many birds - flamingos, storks and herons. Even met some fellow U3A members who live in Spain in our favourite restaurant Rive Gauche.

Very relaxing

The perfect place to stay in a wonderful town

  • 5 of 5

This was our seventh visit to Tavira and our second successive stay in Casa Nautica.

The house is located right in the heart of the town and within a stones throw of the shops, restaurants and the beach ferry. However, don't expect that to mean noise and crowds. In fact, quite the opposite. Despite the central location, the street is blissfully quiet and peaceful.

Casa Nautica itself is fantastically equipped, perfectly maintained and spotlessly clean. The housekeepers are extremely helpful and the owner is always a pleasure to deal with.

The town of Tavira is probably the best kept secret on the Algarve. Having, for most of my life, said that I would "never choose to visit the same place twice - always look for somewhere new", I am now very much looking forward to the eighth time my family and I get to visit Tavira!

A top class house in an excellent location.

  • 4 of 5

The house was spacious, well equipped and comfortable to live in. Everything was properly maintained and the themed nautical decor gave it a holiday atmosphere. It was in a quiet side street, very close to shops and cafes. The street had parking meters, but there was free parking close by. The town quay, from which the beach ferry operated, was just a short walk away.

All aspects of management, from the booking to the welcome from Tracey, were friendly and efficient.

I would happily recommend the house to friends.

We favoured restaurants on the other side of the river, Bica for beautiful meals and Xico for inexpensive, good food.

Comfortable house, great location

  • 4 of 5

Casa Nautica is a well equipped and comfortable town house in the centre of elegant Tavira. Staying here you are just minutes from the ferry to the beach which operates in the summer, with a supermarket round corner and riverfront bars just a stroll away.

Tracey, the house manager, and Silva, the recommended taxi driver, made our stay hassle-free and provided a very efficient service.

Food and wine are good in Tavira. We were lucky enough to catch the Festival of the Sardine weekend in late June, a colourful and friendly celebration with grilled sardines just one euro each.

The house works well and is as described by the owner. It is in the centre of town so don't expect much outdoor space. Instead, go to one of the bars and relax as you watch the world go by.

This was our second visit to Tavira and we can recommend both the house and the town if you are looking for a holiday in the Algarve.

At home in Tavira

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks in Casa Nautica last August and we enjoyed it from the beginning to the end! We felt immediately at home. The house is simply perfect, fully equipped and very nicely decorated. The weather during our stay was extremely hot and we appreciated highly the air conditioning upon our return from the beach. There were even beach towels at our disposal. There is also a washing machine, so you may pack light.

We were very nicely welcomed by Tracey, the House Manager and found a welcoming bottle of wine in the fridge.

The house is located within walking distance to restaurants, shops and the ferry to Isla de Tavira.

Tavira is a lovely little town, with lots of great restaurants and in the near area several beautiful sandy beaches. On the central square of the town we discovered great ice cream and free concerts.

We are already dreaming of returning to Casa Nautica and Tavira next summer!

Ideal Holiday Town House

  • 5 of 5

Casa Nautica was highly recommended to us and surpassed all our expectations being spotlessly clean and equipped to a very high standard. The owner was very helpful and House Manager gave us a very warm welcome. The centrally located property was very convenient for shops, excellent restaurants and the town. The river and nearby island provided opportunities for bird watching and enjoying the beautiful sandy beaches. We particularly enjoyed the boat trips on the river. We would love to return to Casa Nautica but possibly earlier or later in the year when cooler which would offer more opportunities for walking.

Tavira is a wonderful mix of the unexpected and the unusual. Within a 10 minute walk from Casa Nautica you will find a 13th century castle, the old gate of the city, a Camera Obscura, a magnificent Roman bridge, a beautiful garden with bandstand, and the old market hall which has been converted into a cafe/restaurant, craftshops' area. Then, there are the numerous churches for which Tavira is famous. Pick up your fresh fish, fruit and vegetables from the new local market and admire the salt pans where the famous Tavira salt is harvested.

The closest beach to Casa Nautica is the Ilha de Tavira, a popular attraction for locals and visitors, summer and winter. A picturesque ferry trip takes you there from the riverside in the town, during the summer, or from the four aquas' jetty, in the winter. The Barril beach, close to Pedras del Rei, is often voted by our guests as the best beach.

Other Activities: Bird watching.

Golf: There are four golf courses in the Eastern Algarve. The closest golf courses to Casa Nautica are Benamor and Quinta da Ria..
