The Algarve region
The Algarve is famous for its lovely sunny all-year round climate, with the Eastern Algarve benefitting from warmer conditions, given its closer proximty to the Meditteranean than the Atlantic Ocean.
The Algarve consists of three key regions. Western Algarve, closest to the Atlantic Ocean incorporates places such as Sagres, where the famous Beer of that name is made, together with many little fishing villages and sandy coves and beaches. Lagos is a beautiful little coastal town, bursting with life, restaurants, bars and bustling street activity - not to be missed!
In Central Algarve, you will discover more well known places such as Faro, Villamoura, Portimao and Albufuera - all within a 30 minute to a 1 hour drive of Tavira and all having their own Marinas, with the one at Villamoura a particular favourite of ours. Loule Market - a place to banter and bargain. Hunt in the colourful and bustling gypsy market of Loule, within 30 minutes of the Alto do Perogil. Chance to see traditional skills of Leather, Copperware and Lace. Also the largest fruit and vegetable market of the Algarve. There are a number of Water Parks for the children to enjoy in the Central Algarve area.
Closer to Tavira in the Eastern Algarve, we have Olhao famous for its fishing industry and Sea Food Festival in August each year. San Antonio and Villa Real are picturesque and interesting destinations to visit along the Spanish border to the east of Tavira, along with Monte Gordo, a favourite destination of the Portuguese holidaymaker.
From Tavira, visit the beautiful City of Seville, the Capital of Andalucia and probably Spain's lovliest city!
Visit Castro Marim, Santa Lucia, Cacela Velha and Cabanas - all having their own quaint but nevertheless individual personalities - all only a few kilometres away.
Fantastic Golf courses feature all across the Algarve region, rightly voted some of the Best in the World for the Holiday Golfer or Professional alike!
Tavira is a charming old town often known as the prettiest of the Algarve, with a long history, where time seems to have stood still. There are many small and intimate Portuguese and other restaurants / bars to explore as you stroll around the cobbled streets and riverfront. Freshly caught local fish - a speciality!
The lovely Nature Reserve of Ria Formosa is within only 8 kilometres for the Bird-Watching and Walking enthusiasts.
Traditional Horse-Drawn Carriage provides a different perspective of Historic Tavira.
Miniature Steam Train connects Tavira with outlying villages - a great way to see the town and it's surrounding areas!
37 Churches to see in Tavira and even a Castle to explore!
Golf courses at Benemar (18 holes), Quinta da Ria and Quinta do Cima (both 18 holes) and Colina Verde (9 holes) all within 8 KM of the property. Watch out for the new magnificent Jack Nicklaus golf complex at Monte Rei , opening Autumn 2006.
Locally, there is Tennis, Horse Riding, a Casino at Monte Gordo and even Bull-fighting from time to time!

"A lovely house in a lovely town"
We were very pleased with the house and pool/garden - the 1st floor terrace was perfect for quiet reading and our family meals.
Tavira surprised us by it's history and beautiful old buildings - the choice of places to eat is amazing
We mainly drove into town as parking near the Blue bridge is very convenient - the walk there being almost half an hour.

"The location was perfect and accommodation as advertised."
Location was perfect quiet and seclude but within easy access of Tavira. The villa had a wrap around terrace which captured the sun all day and had an inbuilt BBQ. Ideal for nights in.… More

"Beautiful villa in a beautiful location"
We had a fabulous holiday in your villa in Tavira, and would love to return in the not too distant future. The large pool and pretty gardens were as you had said – excellent. All the facilities and comforts in the villa were of a high order and we particularly enjoyed the views of the hills and sea from the first floor balcony. Eating lunch and dinner out there was a real treat. We loved the walks into town, the bustle of the place in June and the great weather, bars, restaurants and bistros of Tavira. The beaches are out of this world

"Holiday in Tavira"
We stayed in a fab villa just outside Tavira. We all really enjoyed this holiday! Pool was great and villa had absolutely everything you could possibly need. We walked into Tavira everynight down a gorgeous wee lane and got a taxi home each night which was very cheap. Loved Tavira and the buzz about the place! Found some great restaurants that we will return to one day! Great holiday had by all!

"Perfect for golfers and families alike"
Went on a golfing trip with friends and it ticked all the right boxes: short drive to golf; can walk downhill into Tavira (medieval streets next to river with great choice of bars and restaurants); beautiful views over local countryside; private balcony for sunbathing; shared pool with big grassy area.
Planning to go back with the family who will love the local beaches though will need to use a car (or local taxis) to get there.

"Fabulous accommodation and location"
We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay, the accommodation has everything needed for a fantastic home from home experience. The location is very peaceful with magnificent views and a short drive will take you into Tavera, an unspoilt, traditional Portugese town. We also walked there on several occasions, taking around 20 minutes, and there is a great choice of coffee shops, bars and restaurants. It is not necessary to hire a car however we did and discovered beautiful sandy beaches and places of interest within easy reach.

We stayed at the property at half term June 2012. We picked a rental car up form Faro Airport and found the property very easily after a 30min drive! The one way system at the complex was a bit confusing at first and we had to ring the agent up...but we picked it up ok after the initial 'getting lost' situation! The villa itself is lovely and having a bathroom for every bedroom is a dream (no waiting for showers) We experienced no problems with water, heat or any electricals. The villa is well equipped and it is almost like being at home..every utensil you can think of. The terrace is great for dining alfresco and for barbecuing. We also watched many a beautiful sunset from here! Tavira is a pictureesque little village, which we will definately visit again! Highly recommended and the beach is Fantastic (a small trip by ferry 5mins)! The walk to Tavira form the villa is around 10/15mins and quite easy, little harder coming back as its uphill !! We used the car most visits though although the younger members of the group did the walk a few times. A great holiday was had by all !!

"Our holiday home from home!"
We love this villa, it's our home from home! This will be our 5th consecutive year, we love it so much!
The villa has everything you need. Fully equipt kitchen including washing machine and dish washer,modern living/dining room with tv, 3 bathrooms , one on each floor, 3 very nicely furnished bedrooms, outside balcony with BBQ and sun longers which you can take out onto the grass instead of lying on the ground! A big plus for us!
We would recommend a car to get your shopping but you can walk down into town and the taxi's are cheap to come back.
Ian and Jan will meet you and give you lots of good tips about the villa and the town, including where to park, where the supermarkets are and nice restuarants.
All in all we would greatly recommend this villa ans Tavira!

This is a really lovely, comfortable villa in a quiet elevated estate with a sea view from one balcony and a mountain view from the other.
It was nice to deal directly with the owner for a change rather than agents and Garry could not have been more helpful expecially as we were booking the holiday at short notice. We stayed in the villa in January so were unable to make use of the pool which looked very inviting. The Villa is really well equipped with everything you could possibly need unlike some others which seem to provide the absolute minimum required
Tevira town is very quaint with a large selection of good, well priced restaurants only 5 mins by car from the villa. About the same distance away is a fantastic and totally unspoilt beach at Pedras De El Rei in the Rio Formosa National Park
We have holidayed in The Algarve several times but this was our first time in Eastern Algarve. We found it much less commercial, more laid back and certainly better value for money.
