Central Tavira with pool
Apartment | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Why are you going to Tavira?
You like the ambience of a real Portuguese fishing town and gorgeous long sandy beaches. You want somewhere that's got a bit of activity but's not crazy. In the evening, you want to stroll out of the door and into Tavira's charming restaurants and bars.
The apartment is really big and on two floors (not all apartments in the development are this big). It is also at the end of the block so gets even more light. There is a dedicated parking bay downstairs (handily located next to the lift).
If you intend to have a relaxing beach based holiday, you won't need a car as the apartment is in an excellent location in the centre of town (but in a largely residential area), just a few minutes walk from the boat to the beach in summer (I don't know if you know Tavira but the boat to the beach is one of it's attractions). The boat is a bit further away out of peak season but still perfectly accessible. The apartment is also within three minutes walk of the huge indoor market, a supermarket and the library (free internet access).
For young children, there is a small play area outside (but in the development) with climbing frame and we have some games and videos. The swimming pool has a gate to stop toddlers getting in.

|Further details indoors|
Good quality furniture, bought for our holiday home, so we want to be comfortable when we stay, you certainly won't feel that we just bought a cheap 'furniture pack'! So, pocket sprung double bed in master bedroom, comfy soft leather sofas. In the kitchen, there's things like a set of Prestige stainless steel saucepans, a wide range of crockery and, most important of all for all of you chefs, a good quality cooks knife!
The master bedroom has a balcony and a table and chairs, and a lovely view over the rooftops and the morning sun. Both bedrooms have dressing tables and large, ceiling-height fitted wardrobes.
For indoor entertainment, we have a Panasonic flat screen TV, DVD player with a selection of DVDs, stereo with mp3 player input, a wide range of books, and a selection of games for adults and young children.
For young children, we have a good size travel cot, a cantilever style high chair, a potty and plastic cups.

The apartment is looked after by an excellent local family including fluent English speakers.
The Algarve region
Glorious long sandy beaches often reached only by a short boat crossing. Tavira 'Island' stretches for about 3 miles. Whilst there are some excellent restaurants and bars, there are no roads or traffic and you can walk quite literally for miles.
You don't need a car as there is a great rail service running the length of the coast.
Cobbled streets, still a genuine town but enough small bars and restaurants for a cosmopolitan feel. A wonderful old cinema and a castle but also a brand new shopping mall on the edge of town.
Every year at the end of June there is a magnificent flower festival when the streets are decked with paper flowers.
New Year's Eve - a superb fireworks dsiplay over the River Gilao (and at the end of the June fesstival).

"Would stay again"
Great location ..... spacious apartment and home from home equipped. Hired a car from the airport (Recommended) and had own parking space in the underground car park. Walking distance to the town on both sides of the river. No pubs/clubs in the immediate vicinity so a quiet residential area. The pool area is small and is taken over at times by the children of families who obviously live there. The Portuguese man who meets you at the apartment on arrival dosnt speak English so you have to work most things out for yourself but its no big deal. Would recommend and stay here again If I visit Eastern Algarve.

Our second stay at this wonderful apartment. It is incredibly well equipped and doesn't feel like a holiday let at all. It's central to all amenities and the owners have taken some time to point out areas of interest and useful shops etc.
On arrival to Faro, the owners will arrange for a taxi to collect you from the airport, or you can pick up the train which goes straight into Tavira and is about a 10 min walk from the apartment. It's also only €8!
Tavira is beautiful and doesn't come across as a touristy area - perfect for couple getaways! There are plenty of restaurants and bars in Tavira, all serving traditional Portugese cuisine.
Would definitely recommend this holiday rental - although perhaps not Tavira as I want to keep it just for me :)
