The Algarve region
The Algarve is situated on the extreme south coast of Portugal. It's coastline spans over 200 kilometres and boasts some of Europe's cleanest and most picturesque sandy beaches, many of which are "Blue Flag" award winners. The East Algarve has one of the most settled climates in the world and certainly has the best all-year climate in the whole of Europe.
It is very difficult to describe a feeling. It is easy to talk about the world-class golf courses, the miles of beautiful beaches and the excellent bars and restaurants to be found on the Algarve. It is more difficult to describe how being in a certain place is so much better than being anywhere else. This is how it feels being on the Algarve.
Over the last decade Tavira has improved as a tourist location whilst managing to retain the original characteristics that make it one of the most unique and beautiful towns in the Algarve. Historians and sightseers can marvel at the castle, bridges, buildings and churches. Sun-worshippers, hop on the ferry to the never-ending beach on the Ilha de Tavira (ranked by Lonely Planet as one of the 10 World's best beaches to travel with children).
There are 7 golf courses in the East Algarve including the world famous Monte Rei course which was designed by Jack Nicklaus. For more information on Tavira, the apartment, golf courses and other activities and attractions visit our web-site.
