The Algarve region

The Eastern Algarve is still relatively undiscovered as a major holiday destination and so Cabanas retains all the charm of a little fishing village. Cabanas is full of enchanting streets and is a living, traditional Algarvian community. The village is active all year round. Fresh fish meat and vegetables can all be purhcased locally. There are several supermarkets and bank link machines. Splendid beaches, restaurants and a multitude of leisure facilities. Stunning views from the cliff -top walk. Historical sites to visit locally are Estoi (palace), Milreu (Roman ruins) and the nature reserve.


Cabanas is located just two miles from the beautiful town of Tavira; a bustling fishing port with a variety of restaurants, roman architecture, markets, vineyards and seemingly endless beaches.

Tavira, otherwise known as ‘The Little Venice of Portugal’, in the 1500’s was a port of great strategic importance. The events of that period have left an enduring mark on the layout and appearance of the city. There are more than 15 stunningly designed churches and chapels throughout the city, each with its own story to tell.

Tavira also owes its appeal to the river and its reflections, to the changing nuances of the light and the special atmosphere of a town built on the water’s edge. In Tavira the traditional crafts can all be seen including the distinctive wrought ironwork and the Portuguese tradition of lace-making.

Locally caught fresh fish, grilled on an open fire the traditional way, is an obvious choice in any of the many restaurants combined with the red wines of the region.

Average annual temperatures in this part of the Algarve range from 16° - 31° Celsius, just one of the reasons why tourists from Europe keep coming back.


21 Costa de Cabanas is in a prime location in Cabanas, 3 minutes walk from beach front. This beach is accessible by boat, which ferries people to and fro all day long from April to Oct for 1Euro return. The beach has it's own cafe bar, changing facilities & toilet. Parasol, sunbeds, ski and paddle boat hire are all available.

Located in Cabanas de Tavira the surrounding lands of ‘Aldeia de Forteleza’ are protected by a preservation order allowing this development a guarantee of privacy and seclusion. Cabanas is quiet, yet not isolated, and is bursting with an old-style character that will appeal to even the most seasoned tourist.

Cabanas is a traditional village and you can walk along the palm tree lined road along the bay taking the opportunity to dine at one of the many cafes or restaurants which overlook the sea. The village is also a few minutes drive from the bustling market town of Tavira which is steeped in history and known locally as the Town of Churches as there are 22 churches in the locality! The town rests either side of the river with shops, cafes, bars and restaurants along the beautifully cobbled streets.

Cabanas is also only a 20 minute drive from the Portuguese/Spanish borders and you can drive across the magnificent suspension bridge across the River Guadiana to view a traditional part of Spain where many Spanish choose for their holidays. You can enjoy the best of two beautiful countries in one holiday!

There is a Railway Station at Conceirçao (10 minute’s walk from the apartment) from which you can travel the length of the Algarve from Vila Real De Santo Antonio, a historic market town renowned for its linen on the Spanish Border, all the way to Albufeira.

From the station at Vila Real, you can walk to the River Guadiana and catch the ferry which runs every 20 minutes across to the picturesque Spanish town of Ayamonte.

Cabanas is ideal base from which to sight see, play golf or simply enjoy a relaxing holiday within a very friendly comunity. It is a beautiful place and one to which you will surely wish to return.


The Algarve is the most popular golf holiday destination in Europe. With its temperate year-round climate, it offers fabulous golf on a choice of great courses and excellent value for money. The Benamor is just 5 minutes walk from Cabanas. Qunta Da Cima & Quinta Da Ria are located 6 KM east of Tavira.

The Monte Rei Golf Club is set in the picturesque foothills of the Eastern Algarve, with sweeping views of the Serra do Caldeirão mountains to the north and the Atlantic Ocean to the south.

The first of two Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Courses - "Monte Rei North" - will open for play in June 2007. This par 72 Championship course measuring 6567m from the Tournament tees is a truly unique design; with water coming into play on eleven of the eighteen holes, the course features an enjoyable series of eight par-4s, five par-3s and five par-5s in a challenging and distinctive layout.

The course presentation is highly individual, each hole a design gem blending effortlessly into this natural canvas, from its ingenious shape and sculptured bunkers, to the impressive presentation and attention to detail making ever hole as remarkable as the next; fairways and greens are bordered by several lakes, indigenous plants, native grasses and trees adding drama to the landscape, and providing golfers with unforgettable moments to cherish in this unique and tranquil golf environment.

Within a half hour drive of this development there are 14 championship courses. Further details available from owner.

The apartment is....30 min from Faro Airport airport.

5 min from Tariva.

1 min from Beach.

"Couldnt Ask For More!!"

This was our 3rd time visiting this apartment and it was as wonderful as ever. In fact I would say with the addition of walk in shower and air con in bedroom even better than before. Joyce makes the whole booking process absolutely stress free and is more than willing to help with any questions you may have. On arrival Maria welcomes you and she is very friendly and gives you all the information you need but is also on hand throughout your stay if you do run into any problems which I'm sure you wont, we never have. The apartment is spotlessly clean and has all the necessary things to make it a very comfortable stay. The absolute joy is the beautiful wrap around balcony and the roof terrace which always gets a lot of use during our stay. Built in BBQ is brilliant and that also gets a lot of use while we are there. Location wise couldnt get much better. Its literally a couple of minutes walk to the front where there are good quality restaurants, cafes, bar and shops. Also the splendid beach is reached from here, which you cross over to by a fisherman's boat which I think adds to the whole experience. Its all very low key so do not come here if you like loud music and hustle and bustle. But if you like serenity, peace and a very relaxing pace on holiday this is perfect. Cant wait to return!!

"Lovely relaxing apartment"

My friend and I spent a week in Cabanas and the apartment was just perfect. The biggest balconies we have ever seen and perfect location for the pool and restaurants. It's nice not to be in an overly commercialised place. Joyce the owner was so helpful and accommodating with any requests we had which made the holiday completely stress free. Would love to visit again!

"Superb apartment amazing sea views"

A perfect apartment for a relaxing holiday near the beach . Huge balconies plus a private roof top with lovely views over Cabanas. Pool in complex , with Wi Fi at the pool bar. Spotless apartment with everything thought of for a perfect holiday.

"Lovely apartment in a relaxing location"

We stayed for a week at May half term. Needed to recharge the batteries and this was just what was required. Apartment perfect for 2, well equipped. The roof terrace is an added bonus especially if you want to chill and catch the sun. Location is great, away from the town (not that is was noisy or busy) just a 5 minute stroll away. We visited Spain, Taviras (worth going to), boat trip to see Flamingos (and other sea birds) Loule on Saturday for the market personally not bothered about the "Gypsy market" but the veg and fish market were lovely as were the local stalls but it all depends what you are looking for. We enjoyed all the restaurants in Cabanas but our favourite was Pedros, service and food excellent. If you want a relaxing holiday with lovely beach, food and surroundings then this is for you.

"Sunny clean and comfortable apartment. Highly recommended"

what a lovely few days in Cabanas in this spotlessly clean apartment. Great location close to restaurants. All round balconies and roof top terrace ideal. Very comfy bed and oh so quiet at night for a good nights sleep!! Pool area pleasant too and better than photo. You will not be disappointed if you book this apartment.

"Brilliant stay again"

This was our second, but hopefully not last, visit to this property. It is a compact property, ideal for two people, with the added bonus of lots of outdoor space – a wrap around balcony and a roof terrace. Sun lover or shade seeker, you are catered for. Restaurants, bars, the waterfront board walk and the train station are all within strolling distance and the more energetic can walk into Tavira.

"fantastic apt."

This is the second visit in 8 months to this stunning apt. in beautiful Cabanas. With the wrap around balconies and fantastic roof terrace this is perfect to catch those rays. Inside is very comfortable and well equipped. The air con used to great benefit . Joyce the owner arranged our taxi from the airport and Maria who looks after the place was there to greet us on arrival. The apt is very well situated only a short stroll to the very good restaurants and supermarkets, there is an English speaking butcher for fresh Chicken and steaks to put on the BBQ. If you want a relaxing holiday this is the place for you

A super apartment with the added bonus of lots of outdoor space. Very clean,quiet and well equipped. On arrival we were met by Maria who showed us round and gave us information on where to find the best markets, supermarkets etc. If you are looking for Benidorm and the bright lights then this is not for you but if watching the birds at the salt pans at Tavira, strolling on stunning beaches(try Barilla at Santa Luzia), watching fishermen land their catch,exploring bustling markets (Olhao on Saturdays is good),walking in the countryside or just soaking up the sun appeals then definitely book here. A trip to the Spanish border is within easy reach (Alcoutim is very pretty) and do visit Faro,it is worth more than a glance on the way to the airport. We hired a car and so are unable to comment on ease of travel on pubic transport but the local station is a nearby. There are are lots of places to eat out locally and all seem reasonably priced,our favourite was O Monteiro but lovely fresh local produce is easily available if you like to eat in.

"Nice Apartment"

The apartment is in a great location for restaurants and bars, just a few minutes walk to the center of Cabanas. It is very well equipped including tables to both front and back verandas, breakfast in the sun to the rear and dinner in the sun in the evening. The apartment is very clean and the air conditioning is fabulous. The built in BBQ to the front veranda is a great way to spend the evening over a couple of bottles of the local wines. The roof terrace is great for all day sunbathing. Cabanas has a fantastic choice of restaurants and bars. If you want a relaxing holiday in Portugal we highly recommend this apartment and location.

"Penthouse Apartment"

Returned from this apartment in June and can safely say what a great place to stay, we were looking for somewhere away from the big resorts and what a surprise Cabanas was. The apartment is perfect for a couple who like peace during the day with a private roof terrace to laze away the hours and in the evening just a short walk to the bars and restaraunts with plenty of choice for everybody. We hired a car but it is not needed unless you want to see a bit more of the Algarve, Tavira is a must for at least one evening a meal by the river and then a walk round the town what a gem. I would like to say if you want a stress free holiday this apartment is for you and we have recommended this to everybody since we returned.
