About this location
The Algarve region
Cabanas, in the district of Tavira, is a beautiful, picturesque former fishing village that has been transformed into a great holiday location. It's name comes from the huts (cabanas) that the local fishermen used to store their fishing gear in. Situated alongside the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve, Cabanas has everything required for relaxing, peaceful and fulfilling holiday. Take a small ferry across the river to the Ihla de Cabanas de Tavira, a sandy beach approximately 8km in length - plenty of room for everyone so you'll have no worries about finding a quiet spot! The beach has a good cafe and toilets, and watersports are available. More than once the beach has been awarded the Blue Flag - a seal of approval for top water quality and beach appearance.
A boardwalk runs the entire length of the Avenida Ria Formosa, with seats and sunshades dotted along it to allow you to sit and enjoy the view. There are cobbled pavements running parallel to the boardwalk, with plenty of small cafés with outside seating to sit, relax and enjoy a coffee or a cold beer!
Cabanas has all the facilities you need for an enjoyable holiday - car hire is certainly not essential. There is a market, supermarkets, banks and shops. The nearest golf course is a mere 10-15 minute walk from the seafront. You can also hire bikes and book excursions should you wish to explore further afield. The Eastern end of the Algarve can also easily be explored by train - there is a railway line that runs virtually along the coast from Faro to Vila Real de Santo Antonio (situated right on the Spanish border) and there is a station in Conceicao (5 minutes walk from the centre of Cabanas). A fun and cheap way to explore!
A mere 10 minute drive to the east of Cabanas is the town of Tavira. Built on both sides of the River Gilao with the Roman bridge (Ponta Romana) connecting each side. It is very much a Portuguese town with plenty of cafés and gardens on the riverside to stop and watch the world go by! It is said that Tavira is the town with the most churches in the Algarve. There are also the ruins of a 13th century Moorish fortress to visit and the Camara Obscura in the Torre de Tavira (the old water tower) gives you a 360 degree view of the town. Tavira is full of culture and museums and during the summer you can listen to wonderful, open-air music events there.
To the west of Cabanas lies Santa Luzia, the 'Octopus Capital' of the Algarve! Fisherman here mainly aim to catch octopus, lowering their clay pots into the shallow waters with the aim of catching them. Octopus is considered a delicacy, although is probably not to everyone's taste! Just to the west of Santa Luzia you can catch a tourist train from Pedras del Rei that takes you across the marshes of the Ria Formosa to Praia do Barril, a beautiful sandy beach in the middle of the Ihla de Tavira.
Temperatures in the Algarve are pleasantly warm from May onwards and breezes from the Atlantic mean that, although hot in July and August, it is rarely unpleasant. Autumn is warm and dry until mid to late October and winter temperatures rarely drop below 15 degrees in the day, providing great golfing weather at this time!

"Fabulous apartment with everything you could possibly need in a wonderful location."
I travelled with my husband and 2 young children (8&5) and we stayed for a week in August. The apartment was clean, modern and spacious offering complete black out blinds in the bedrooms (which were fab for the children's rooms), air conditioning, wifi, TV, DVD player and games and books. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you could possibly need. The balcony is ground floor level, with a table and chairs, we ate breakfast, lunch and tea out there. It leads directly on to the poolside which was perfect for dipping in and out of the pool without the need to 'pack a bag' or pack up if the little one needed the loo! There is a table football and a table tennis table which he kids loved. There is a spar 2 minute walk up the road and just around the corner is the boardwalk with lots of lovely restaurants, shops, Ice cream parlours (the blackberry ice cream is a must) . The beach is also within walking distance and a 1min boat ride away, Cabanas is a fabulous resort, very relaxed and family friendly, I have already recommended this apartment to friends and we will definitely be going back again. The agents were also wonderful and extremely helpful and only a phone call away.

"A really lovely apartment to stay in, had exactly what we needed. Home from home."
We had such a lovely time staying in this beautiful apartment, it had all that we needed. As we said it done exactly what it said on the tin, it had what it was advertised to have and more. It is only a 3 min walk to the shops and restaurants. There was all you need in the apartment. The beds were very comfy and changed at the end of our first week. A lovely flat screen tv and dvd player. So tastefully decorated. Our view each morning from our patio door was the lovely pool straight in front. The patio area was well equipt with a lovely patio set and BBQ. There was float beds and toys for the kids to use in the pool. It is a lovely small complex with only 20 odd apartments, but our 3 kids still made some lovely friends. Cabanas is a beautiful town, we will most sure be back there and hopefully by next summer, the kids have already planned to meet their new friends there next summer.

We stayed at Sarah's apartment for a week in June. The apartment was perfect, it was beautifully furnished, clean and spacious and the patio doors led straight out to the pool area. The complex was excellent, nice and quiet and just a few minutes walk away from the promenade with a good selection of restaurants and bars to choose from. There was a bakery, butchers and supermarket all within a couple of minutes of the apartment too, which was very handy. The bus stop for the bus to Tavira is just around the corner, well worth a visit. Sarah, Jeff and Wendy were extremely helpful and helped make the week perfect. Would definitely stay again!
