In the summer months Tavira Town Council presents a programme of live outdoor entertainment. This is largely free to the public and will offer all kinds of attractions, from folk dancing to antiques markets. There are gastronomic fayres showcasing local products, theatre and circus performers, book and record fayres....... During midsummer celebrations the central gardens are decorated with hanging garlands of brightly coloured paper flowers, stages are erected and the pavements are strewn with sweet smelling herbs for the public dancing which is enjoyed by all ages. Life is lived very much on the streets in Tavira. The days are hot so in the evening, the cooling influence of the Rio Gilao which runs through Tavira, is enjoyed by everyone. A wonderful way to spend quality time and create new memories. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 26323/ALMore

About the neighbourhood
TaviraPad is in a quiet area with easy access and parking. Staying so centrally you will have the freedom to discover the charms of this beautiful town with ease. A short 6 minute walk through pretty cobbled streets brings you to the historical quarter and to the centre of this photogenic, charming town with its wonderful architectural features, tree-lined avenues, little shops and a wide variety of excellent restaurants and cafes. During the high season a programme of entertainment is scheduled in and around the town centre. No need to worry about driving home.... everyone has a holiday.
Getting around
This is an ideal rental for those that choose not to hire a car. There is a regular ferryboat service 5 minutes walk from your door on the other side of the river. The Ilha Tavira is a 10minute water ride away. Tavira Island is a delight and boasts 11km of sandy beach with many cafes and restaurants to serve your needs.. An excellent commuter train service connects all the coastal towns of the Algarve with a frequency of one train every hour during the day and connects Tavira with the twice daily Faro-Lisbon Express. There are also Express coaches (EVA) that run direct from Tavira to Seville and to Lisbon. There is an unofficial website for the bus and train services for this region in English if you search for 'Algarve bus info'
