“Fantastic Family Orientated Holiday”
Reviewed 25 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015
2
people found this review helpful

The overall holiday experience was fantastic. The location is perfect for a super relaxing holiday. Set on either side of the meandering Rio Gilão, Tavira is a charming town. The ruins of a hilltop castle, an old Roman bridge and a smattering of Gothic and Renaissance churches are among Tavira’s historic attractions.

Tavira itself has avoided the tourism trap of Central Algarve and does not aim for mass tourism and is more designed for those families who want to embrace and experience the charms of old Portugal.

The Apartment was large and spacious and had everything you would want from DVDs to books and games. It’s centrally located and close to all of the amenities. Perfect location to be based if you want to explore East Algarve as the appartment has an underground car park for your hire car. Car is not required unless want to explore further afield.

The town does not have a beach but this part of the experience travelling by boat meandering down the river seeing the Flamingos in the salt plains to the wonderful sands which greet you when arrive at ilha de Tavira beach. The journey only takes 10 mins and for the cost of 2 Euros for a return ticket it adds to the charm of the holiday.

They are plenty of activities from Kayaking down Ria Formosa to boat tours which includes snorkeling and boat trips to see the Dolphins in their natural habitat.

I would recommend a trip “A Ver Tavira” restaurant on the hill top set next to the castle walls and opposite Santa Maria church. It’s a superb location overlooking this attractive and historic town is an added bonus to the great food on offer. Locally sourced ingredients such as octopus, fish and shellfish are often used.

If want to experience an holiday away from it all this would be perfect.

“Great apartment, ideal location”
Reviewed 17 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Stayed here for two weeks in July 2015, booking was really easy, owner replied promptly to my emails. Apartment was spotless, getting the key was simple, one phone call and we were met outside the complex in about five minutes, told how things worked etc. The apartment is spacious and well equiped, beds are comfortable, plenty of seating inside and out, plenty of pans, cutlery, plates etc so you can easily self cater but there are loads of cafes and restaurants in Tavira so why bother cooking !! Pool was nice - clean and not crowded - there are no sun beds provided but most people seemed to take beds from their apartment. Only five minutes walk to get the boat to ihla de Tavira and a small supermarket is only a couple of minutes away. 10-15 minutes walk up to Lidl which is next to the train station - journey back is far easier as it's downhill !!
In summary a lovely apartment in perfect location ,- book with confidence you won't be disappointed.

“Excellent apartment very close to local amenities”
Reviewed 9 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

The apartment is very spacious over 2 floors. The apartment complex has a small pool which was great for cooling off in the heat of the day. The complex is very safety conscious for young children.
The location of apartment is central to the town and near all the amenities. It is well laid out and has good facilities including a games room with table football and air hockey.
Well equipped kitchen and luxurious bath room.
The apartment has access to UKTV channels and DVD's

“FAB”
Reviewed 8 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Had a lovely time at the apartment. Complex is very safe for young children our are aged 8, 9 and 9. They had lots of freedom as the complex is gated. They made plenty of friends. The apartment is spacious and they enjoyed having the hockey table to play on. The kitchen is well equipped and there is plenty of storage space for clothing. Tavira itself is a lovely wee town and although its not a resort as such it still has that holiday feel with a lovely quaintness. Plenty going on in the square of an evening. Lots of nice restaurants and reasonable prices for everything. The beach is absolutely gorgeous, very clear waters with lovely white sands and very shallow for children. Wifi and a BBQ would be my only recommendations, but hey we lived without it and will definitely return.
