The Algarve region
Tavira is often known as the prettiest town of the Algarve. The lovely Ria Formosa nature reserve is within only 8 kilometres. The beautiful island beach is a short boat ride away, with plenty of beach cafes and sunshades. Water sports available in the summer.
There are many places to visit in the surrounding area such as historic Castro Marim, charming fishing villages such as Fuzeta and Olhao. Loule market is always a favourite where you can hunt for that bargain. Family fun can be found at the Aqua Show water park near Quarteira or you can swim with the dolphins at Zoo Marine near Albufeira.
Algarvean and Roman history, architecture and culture are in Tavira in abundance. Visit the many churches and castle. Take a walk around the cobbled streets or along the river bank. Enjoy a meal or snack in one of the many riverside cafes and restaurants. Hop on a five minute boat ride to the beautiful beaches on the Isle of Tavira. It seems time has stood still in this charming old town with a long history.
Visit other local places such as Castro Marim, Cabanas and Santa Luzia. Santa Luzia has a summer festival with live music and street entertainment during August. Take in the evening outdoor (free) shows in the centre of Tavira during the summer months.
Enjoy a drink in the 'square' at Villa Real, surrounded by orange blossom. Wander round the many shops or stroll along the marina. This is the last town in Portugal before Spain. Visit the beautiful city of Seville in Spain (2 hours) or the nearest town in Spain just over the border, Ayamonte.

"Good quality and well equipped spacious apartment in quiet suburb of Tavira."
Good quality and well equipped spacious apartment in quiet suburb of Tavira. There are a couple of bars, restaurants and a café/bakery within 500m. Brisk walk into town centre takes about 40 mins. Small pool loses the sun in the afternoon but roof terrace provides all day sun. Tavira is quieter and less commercialised than west Algarve but there are plenty of bars/restaurants to choose from. Great selection of beaches along this area of coastline but a car is essential to make the best of them. Excellent golf course with friendly staff just down the road (Benamor).

"EVERYTHING WE WANTED FROM RELAXING HOLIDAY"
The apartment has all mod cons and is situated in a very quiet area. There are a few very inexpensive bars and restaurants within walking distance. The main old town is very pretty and has some excellent restaurants. The beach is stunning with a wide choice of restaurants. Tavira is very slow and relaxing, an ideal place to chill out.
the only minus point is the apartment is quite a walk from the town and the boat to the beach so I would recommend car hire as the bus service in tair is non existent.

"Very well kept appartment in Quiet Location"
Location – if you are looking for something to "get away from it all & chill" this is great ! We travelled as family of two adults & 2 children - enjoyed a lovely break with an excellently kept & clean apartment with private (shared) pool. All you would want in an apartment, fully fitted kitchen with en-suite in main bedroom, balcony, living and bedrooms all had air-con etc. Has a bakery w & coffees hops within walking distance, although would recommend a car as it is really residential area and to eat out or see the sights you need transport! Area – if you want vibrant night life and bars etc then not for you , not a lot of water parks or large touristy stuff close by as east of faro is more authentic Portugal with quieter fishing villages and rural area but lovely coastline with plenty of fantastic beaches to chose from. Would go back again

"Lovely apartment, great area!"
We spent a lovely 2 weeks in this apartment.It is in a very well maintained apartment complex.
It Is spotlessly clean and was very well equipped with all we needed.
The apartment is a great base for a family holiday, there are lots of fabulous beaches in the area and the town of Tavira is full of character with lots of good restaurants close by.
