How to get there

By Car:

1) When you leave the airport you go over the roundabout, taking the first exit directly onto a dual carriageway

2) After a few KMs the carriageway veers very hard to the right, with basically no warning. Be careful here. There is much evidence on the outside barrier of people who were caught unawares by this corner.

3) You swing round 270 degrees on this bend and it feeds you into another road. Just keep going.

4) After another few KMs you will see the exit for the motorway, signposted Spain. Take this road (towards Spain). You are now on the motorway.

5) Follow this motorway for 20 mins or so to the Tavira exit. Take that exit.

6) Down the slip road to the roundabout. Straight over the roundabout (2nd exit)

7) Keep going for a couple of KMs to a big roundabout with a large artistic sail on it. Straight over the roundabout (2nd exit)

8) 500m to another roundabout. Straight over the roundabout (2nd exit)

9) Keep straight along this (very small) road, over a tiny crossroad with another crossroad immediately after it. Straight over this crossroad as well.

10) This takes you up a small hill for 25 yards and brings you into the square where the apartment is. Turn right into the square and go to the top, where you will find number 5. The apartment is on the 2nd floor.

By bus / train

1) Find your way to Faro station (ask at the airport which bus goes there or catch a taxi).

2) Catch the train to Tavira. It will be a couple of Euros each.

3) Cross the small roundabout outside the train station. Walk down the main street (Av. Dr. Mateus Teixeira de Azevedo) for a few minutes, staying on the right-side of the street.

4) After three or four minutes you will turn right into a tiny pedestrian street on the right called Travessa de Lisboa. As you walk through this ally onto the square the apartment is on your immediate right. It is building number 5. The apartment is on the 2nd floor.
