The Algarve / East 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!
The Tavira / Alto do Perogil area
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!

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.

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 !!
