The Algarve / East Algarve region
The Eastern Algarve is still relatively undiscovered as a major holiday destination and so Cabanas retains all the charm of a little fishing village. Cabanas is full of enchanting streets and is a living, traditional Algarvian community. The village is active all year round. Fresh fish meat and vegetables can all be purhcased locally. There are several supermarkets and bank link machines. Splendid beaches, restaurants and a multitude of leisure facilities. Stunning views from the cliff -top walk. Historical sites to visit locally are Estoi (palace), Milreu (Roman ruins) and the nature reserve.
Cabanas is located just two miles from the beautiful town of Tavira; a bustling fishing port with a variety of restaurants, roman architecture, markets, vineyards and seemingly endless beaches.
Tavira, otherwise known as ‘The Little Venice of Portugal’, in the 1500’s was a port of great strategic importance. The events of that period have left an enduring mark on the layout and appearance of the city. There are more than 15 stunningly designed churches and chapels throughout the city, each with its own story to tell.
Tavira also owes its appeal to the river and its reflections, to the changing nuances of the light and the special atmosphere of a town built on the water’s edge. In Tavira the traditional crafts can all be seen including the distinctive wrought ironwork and the Portuguese tradition of lace-making.
Locally caught fresh fish, grilled on an open fire the traditional way, is an obvious choice in any of the many restaurants combined with the red wines of the region.
Average annual temperatures in this part of the Algarve range from 16° - 31° Celsius, just one of the reasons why tourists from Europe keep coming back.
The Cabanas de Tavira / Costa de Cabanas area
21 Costa de Cabanas is in a prime location in Cabanas, 3 minutes walk from beach front. This beach is accessible by boat, which ferries people to and fro all day long from April to Oct for 1Euro return. The beach has it's own cafe bar, changing facilities & toilet. Parasol, sunbeds, ski and paddle boat hire are all available.
Located in Cabanas de Tavira the surrounding lands of ‘Aldeia de Forteleza’ are protected by a preservation order allowing this development a guarantee of privacy and seclusion. Cabanas is quiet, yet not isolated, and is bursting with an old-style character that will appeal to even the most seasoned tourist.
Cabanas is a traditional village and you can walk along the palm tree lined road along the bay taking the opportunity to dine at one of the many cafes or restaurants which overlook the sea. The village is also a few minutes drive from the bustling market town of Tavira which is steeped in history and known locally as the Town of Churches as there are 22 churches in the locality! The town rests either side of the river with shops, cafes, bars and restaurants along the beautifully cobbled streets.
Cabanas is also only a 20 minute drive from the Portuguese/Spanish borders and you can drive across the magnificent suspension bridge across the River Guadiana to view a traditional part of Spain where many Spanish choose for their holidays. You can enjoy the best of two beautiful countries in one holiday!
There is a Railway Station at Conceirçao (10 minute’s walk from the apartment) from which you can travel the length of the Algarve from Vila Real De Santo Antonio, a historic market town renowned for its linen on the Spanish Border, all the way to Albufeira.
From the station at Vila Real, you can walk to the River Guadiana and catch the ferry which runs every 20 minutes across to the picturesque Spanish town of Ayamonte.
Cabanas is ideal base from which to sight see, play golf or simply enjoy a relaxing holiday within a very friendly comunity. It is a beautiful place and one to which you will surely wish to return.
The Algarve is the most popular golf holiday destination in Europe. With its temperate year-round climate, it offers fabulous golf on a choice of great courses and excellent value for money. The Benamor is just 5 minutes walk from Cabanas. Qunta Da Cima & Quinta Da Ria are located 6 KM east of Tavira.
The Monte Rei Golf Club is set in the picturesque foothills of the Eastern Algarve, with sweeping views of the Serra do Caldeirão mountains to the north and the Atlantic Ocean to the south.
The first of two Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Courses - "Monte Rei North" - will open for play in June 2007. This par 72 Championship course measuring 6567m from the Tournament tees is a truly unique design; with water coming into play on eleven of the eighteen holes, the course features an enjoyable series of eight par-4s, five par-3s and five par-5s in a challenging and distinctive layout.
The course presentation is highly individual, each hole a design gem blending effortlessly into this natural canvas, from its ingenious shape and sculptured bunkers, to the impressive presentation and attention to detail making ever hole as remarkable as the next; fairways and greens are bordered by several lakes, indigenous plants, native grasses and trees adding drama to the landscape, and providing golfers with unforgettable moments to cherish in this unique and tranquil golf environment.
Within a half hour drive of this development there are 14 championship courses. Further details available from owner.

We had a great holiday due to the high standard of this apartment. Just like being at home with all utilites you require.
This is my third time to stay in this apartment previous times I stayed with girl friends.
This was my husbands first visit and he was so impressed with the cleanliness of the apartment, the wrap around balconies and roof terrace.
Also the location is fantastic just few minutes walk to local restaurants and bars.
The pool area has wifi and a lovely cafe bar which serves really good food.
I would highly recommend this apartment for couples or a break with the girls.

This was our second time to the apartment for our holiday in Cabanas and we fell in love with the place and area even more!
Even in October the sun shines (only a couple days of rain) so we took full advantage of the private roof terrace, which is a sun trap with nice views of the sea. The huge wrap-around balcony in particular is a highlight allowing us to have breakfast and lunch (prepared in the apartments kitchin) in the Sun every day.
There is a very helpful guide book provide by Joyce (the owner) which suggests places to visit and the best restaurants in the area (take a look at my other reviews for the best Restaurants).
Just across the road from the apartment is the complex swimming pool. Good sized pool and also found it to be very quiet. Also can get a good WiFi connection there.
The apartment is clean, modern, warm and secure - this definately won't be our last visit!

I booked this apartment with my fiance for our first holiday alone together. We had a really comfortable stay here. With the satelite TV and pull out sofa bed it felt like a home from home. There was two twin beds rather than a double, however when it is so hot I am not sure a double would be so inviting anyway.
Joyce was very accommodating and helped to arrange the taxi and the apartment manager to greet us. She also so kindly gave us some red and white wine in the fridge to start our holiday which was a lovely surprise.
The flat's charcoal grill, outside on the balcony was my favourite part of the apartment - we bought market fish and cooked this, and it was very tasty! There were already some condiments in the cupboards which were helpful. The beach umbrella too was also a welcomed item with the strength of the sun!
The area of the flat was really good too; with all amenities such as railway station, supermarket, beach and food market all within a 20 minute walk max. We visited other little towns such as Tavira (good) and Castro Marim (worth a miss due to the long walk to beach/town). A lot of the bars and restaurants have English menus and speaking waiters so it made it much easier to order!
All these factors made this holiday really easy and enjoyable for us. I would recommend this flat and service to anyone.
