Features and Facilities
The Algarve region
Nestling alongside the shores of a natural blue water lagoon and lying adjacent to the 18th Century Fort of Sao Joao da Barra, located just outside of the picture-postcard fishing village of Cabanas in the eastern Portuguese Algarve.
The eastern part of the Algarve remains an unspoilt part of Portugal and Cabanas is a true example of this. This beachfront village continues to retain all the old style charm of a typical Portuguese fishing village, while incorporating all the modern requirements of today's holiday maker. Splendid beaches, restaurants and a multitude of leisure facilities.
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. And located on the eastern side of the Algarve, Cabanas de Tavira is a typical Algarvian town only 30 mins maximum from Faro Airport.
We are only 15mins from Spain, so are easily accessible to beautiful Seville (90min) where you'll find the Isla Magica Theme Park. The Algarve also boasts Zoomarine, Aqualand, Slide & Splash plus many more family activities.
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!
For golfers: The Algarve is the number 1 location in Europe. There is a great choice of courses within 15 minutes drive. The closest just 1km away.
For Shoppers: There is a Mall within 5 min drive in Tavira but there are also local markets, selling local produce and 'gypsy' type markets.
Entertainment at it's Portuguese best. Simply wonderful. There are always festivals somewhere in the Algarve.
Cabanas de Tavira
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! Andalucia is only down the road.
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.
The nearest 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.
There is a Railway Station at Conceicao (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 sightsee, 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 Vilamoura Courses are only 40 Minutes away by car.
The Benamor Golf course is just a 5-minute walk from Costa de Cabanas. This course opened in May 2000 and has proven to be very popular. The course was adapted from Henry Cotton?s original concept and offers some interesting challenges amid peaceful surroundings. Cork oaks, water and contoured greens feature prominently and it is well recommended.
There are two other courses nearby, Quinta Da Ria Golf Club and a sister course Qunta Da Cima. Quinta Da Ria is located 4km east of Cabanas and opened in 2001 to rave reviews. Relatively flat, the course winds through almond and olive groves and stretches down to the Ria Formosa. Stunning views and a must play for all avid golfers visiting the Algarve. Quinta Da Cima is a more challenging course,for the longer hitter. Superb fairways and greens and compares to the best on the Algarve.Highly recommended.Green Fee Discounts are available when booked through www.teetimes.com.
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. This course is reputed to be the best in Portugal,expensive to play but if booked early morn or late afternoon,there are good discounts. Really for a special occasion.
The first of two Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Courses - "Monte Rei North" - Opened to rave reviews in Autumn 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. This Golf Course will feature on the European Tour for sure shortly. This course is the best I have ever played,tees,greens,fairways and bunkers are maintained superbly.
Within an half hour drive of this development there are 14 championship courses.
The apartment by car is 30 min from Faro Airport airport.
5 min from Tariva.
1 min from Beach.
2 min from Golf courses.

"Peace & tranquility in a beautiful little village."
I stayed in Costa de cabanas in July. The apartment was comfortable, spacious and spotless. We had breakfast on the large balconies daily. The apartment was well equipped and situated very close to shops, bars, cafés & the beach. The swimming pool was lovely and had a snack bar. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be going back.
