The Algarve region
Besides Tavira, the nearest town on the banks of the river Gilão which offers many places of historic interest and about 30 churches, other nearby places of interest are Olhão which is still known for its octopus fishing, Estoi with the now renovated palace, Castro Marim and many more. Life and shopping in Ayamonte (Spain) just across the border, offers a different aspect of life.
The mild climate in the winter makes it appealing for those wanting to avoid the long, cold winter months in other parts of Europe. The almond blossoms are in full bloom in January and February. The warmest months are July and August and the water temperature is warmer than most other parts of the Algarve. There are many other beaches which can be driven up to.
Besides wine and fish specialities, Portugal is noted for its cork, wicker and ceramics. For the sports interested: Golf, horse-riding, watersports, tennis, fishing, bird-watching, lawn bowling etc. are all offered in close vicinity.
Cabanas de Tavira
Cabanas is an old fishing village, which celebrates many festivals such as St. John's day in June, the sea-food festival in August and smaller other fairs and markets during the year.
A 10-minute walk to the "Salinas" (salt-pans) over the newly constructed wooden bridge makes it worthwhile for bird watching and offers various species of birds such as flamingos, ducks, spoon-bills, whoopoes, comrons, herons, black-tailed godwits, blackwinged stilts, aversets etc. The harvesting of salt mid-August is a technique in itself. Great for nordic-walking.

"Spacious, Private Studio with fantastic Balcony"
What a find! This studio was more spacious and comfortable than many apartments we have seen and stayed in. We were met by Sandra - the owner - who showed us round the apartment. The thoughtfulness and detail of the fixtures and fittings made for a very relaxing holiday indeed. We particularly liked the privacy and outlook from the balconies (wraparound sunshine or shade whatever you wanted).The BBQ was excellent and the loungers and garden chairs were plentiful.It was great to arrive in an apartment that had not been stripped of essentials such as dishwasher and washing machine liquids, salt, pepper, cling film, toilet rolls, foil etc. Even charcoal and firelighters had been left which we replaced as we used them. It was nice too to be able to watch the morning news programme on Sky TV (this was the only time we had the TV on) We had taken some DVDs in case of bad weather. However we never watched them as we had wall to wall sunshine for the entire 10 days. Be aware, however, that the beds are rather firm. We counteracted this by putting the sun lounger cushions under the fitted sheet at night. We did not feel rushed to leave the apartment by a certain time in the morning like some places require as Sandra had no immediate booking that day. All in all a very good holiday.

"Home from home"
Edificio Canada was ideally located for us as we could walk to the golf club and Cabanas to eat or go to the beach. We did not need to hire a car. The studio apartment was very spacious -plenty big enough for 2 people, and the balcony (where we spent most of our time when at the apartment) was excellent, with sunny views all day. Sandra, the owner, made sure all was ready for us and was very helpful. WSe have alreasdy booked to stay there again next year.

"Everything you need and .... then some"
A perfect apartment in a nice area. The owner was a delight and ensured everything we needed was done to ensure our needs were met, without us having to ask. She understands the requirements of the holidaymaker and caters in advance.

"Heaven in Cabanas"
In 2009 we had 15 vacation days to enjoy and no booking ahead. Then we found this apartment on some lucky search and contacted Sandra right away to book it, 24h later we were at Cabanas de Tavira with apt keys in our hand, super and professional work by Sandra.
Since then we always choose this apartment for our summer vacations.
The apt is located between Conceição and Cabanas de Tavira, in Edifício Canada, with a super, relaxed and refreshing view from his balcony. The Canada complex is quiet and safe. We had remote control keys for main gate and to the garage, in 3 years we had no problems inside or outside the complex, whether it was by car, walking or bike.
Inside you will find a large studio with a double bed room and a living room, divided by a wall cupboard, with air conditioning. A DVD and TV with English, German and Portuguese channels is available. The kitchen (very well equipped) and bathroom are perfect, you´ll find everything you need there. There is still a storeroom with a laundry machine.
The large balcony is like heaven with panoramic views and a BBQ. Photos bellow speaks for itself.
In Cabanas is (or should be) all about walking or biking. You can walk anywhere in 15min. Supermarkets, restaurants and bars is in walking distance. If you are a bike lover the Algarve cycle route passes in front of the Canada main gate.
It´s a very peaceful and quiet area, not yet touristy (and please try your best to keep it like that). You can find yourself home away from home in this lovely apartment.

"Our second home"
We have stayed 4 times and love the apt. Sandra is absolutely a dream owner who responds quickly to every request with a pleasant and accomodating demeanor. We have become friends and enjoy her very much. The apt. is beautiful, well equipped and a good walking distance from the small town. Highly recommended.
