This is the place to take a girlfriend and make her very happy. It's located 2 mins walk from the train station - the station staff all know where it is. We walked across the tracks and up the road - I hadn't told my girlfriend where we were staying and she was in a bad mood while going along...

We had the best possible holiday. There was great privacy, very helpful, attentive staff. Proximity to the train station was a bonus, and also being close to downtown Tavira. The breakfast was delicious, the general maintenance of rooms and grounds was excellent. We stayed eleven nights and would have loved to stay longer. We felt as if we were in...

This converted farmhouse has lots of character, beautiful gardens with fountains, and great rooms, most with kitchens or kitchenettes. It's well-managed by two sisters. This place is a particularly good choice if you have a few days and are getting tired of eating in restaurants all the time. The kitchens are modern and well stocked with dishes and cooking utensils....

We cannot speak highly enough of Quinta do Caracol. It is in a beautiful setting. The 2 sisters who run it are very friendly and helpful. Our room was lovely, spacious and comfortable with the added bonus of a kitchenette. The hotel is well placed for exploring Tavira on foot. We would love to return here.

I had read about this property online before leaving on our trip. We weren't sure whether we'd be visiting Tavira. When we ended up going there I looked it up on my Blackberry & just showed up hoping for a room - luckily they had a couple available. This very old property has been very lovingly & tastefully restored by...

Our room was cosy and the gardens were beautiful. All in all this was exactly the holiday we were expecting. The owners organised our transfers which were hassle free and when we arrived gave us a map and talked us through which restaurants to avoid, how to walk into town, nearest supermarkets and how to get to the two nearest...

Incredible Oasi in the border of Tavira, it seems to stay in a Caribbean Resort. Flowers, little swiming pool, frogs, tennis court, friendly staff. Perfect for families with children and to have peaceful holidays.....

Stayed here with my girlfriend for 3 nights in April. Would definitely go back for a longer stay next time. We had a great appartment/room with a small kitchenette which was really handy when we arrived on a rainy evening (supermarket is 2 minutes away). Very easy to find with plenty of parking and only a ten minute walk from...

Our family of 4 stayed here for a few nights during a visit to the Algarve. We had no trouble finding the place or checking in. The accomodation itself is set on a former farm however it is NOW in the middle of the town of Tavira. Still it felt secluded enough and had beautiful grounds, ponds, fountains. We were...

Converted farmhouse - now providing typical Algarve accomodation with an ecology friendly slant. Great experience offering a quiet relaxing base which is still within walking distance to the centre of Tavira. A pity we came in rainy November, we'd love to return in high summer. There are BBQ facilities to do your own thing, but why bother with so many...
