Tavira Vacations Apartments met the holiday needs of our family pretty much perfectly- we had a fantastic time. The complex is small and quiet but with a friendly atmosphere, very much engendered by the helpful, welcoming and very personable owners. Our apartment was spacious and clean with a large patio and our own barbeque. We didn't miss the lack of an oven. There was plenty wardrobe space and the beds were very comfortable. The swimming pool was clean and well-maintained in pleasant grounds. The kids were so happy with the pool that we barely visited the beach.
We didn't have a car so were glad that Tavira itself- a very pretty and unspoiled town- was within a 25 minute walk. Our 7 and 11 year-old girls managed it easily. There are plently of reasonably-priced restaurants serving local food in little side streets just the other side of the river. The beach on the "Isle of Tavira" was beautiful with plenty amenities/restaurants, It was a bit of a schlep for us involving a walk into town to pick up the river boat- a journey of about 45 mins if you get the timings right.
Again, without a car, buying provisions could have presented a problem. It was only a 10 -15 minute walk to the nearest supermarket, but such was the friendliness of the owners and guests we managed to get a few lifts for more bulky shops!
All in all, a relaxing, comfortable, happy fortnight- we are definitely thinking of a return trip.
