Location description from owner

The Algarve region

The area east of Faro contrasts sharply with most of the Algarve. Here development has spread more slowly. The coastline, almost to the Spanish border, is largely lined by stretches of beaches and green spaces part of the Rio Formosa National Park, a conservation area of raw beauty and great ecological importance. The Eastern Algarve has a tranquil beauty and the resorts along this coast have retained much of their local and traditional character. Here tourism blends in perfectly with local activities creating a relaxed way of life. There is a tinge of excitement, even romance, about those ferry or tiny boat trips to the ilhas, trips rewarded by superb, less crowded bathing beaches and warm waters. To the east beyond Tavira the sea ‘returns to land’ creating excellent beaches at Cabanas, Manta Rota, Alagoa and Praia Verde, all accompanied by sensitive development and improvements including superb golf courses and other facilities. Take a step inland and you enter a world where development will never encroach. The countryside is unspoilt and full of surprises. Best surprise of all is the border area to the north and inland from the Guadiana River - here you will find the undiscovered Algarve. Tourism has not yet touched the splendid countryside along the river and into the Serra do Caldeirao.

Cabanas

Built on either side of the river Gilao which is spanned by two low bridges (one Roman), Tavira is without doubt the most beautiful town in the Algarve. The town's main industry is still fishing and its independence of tourism adds to its charm. Everything seems to centre on the palm-lined river, from restaurants and tiny bars to the daily fruit and vegetable market and fishing boats. The town's old buildings, most carefully preserved, complete the perfect picture. One of the best kept secrets of the Portuguese Algarve is the traditional and picturesque fishing village of Cabanas. This sleepy corner of the Eastern Algarve boasts some of the most beautiful beaches in Europe. Much of the surrounding landscape is designated nature reserve, ensuring that the authenticity and beauty of the region will be preserved now and into the future.Tavira is a charming mix of old and new – Roman, Moorish and Portuguese features abound. The typical Portuguese features of the town are well preserved and the thriving tourist industry coexists alongside a vibrant local economy and culture. There are many restaurants and fish is a speciality. Inexpensive restaurants, bars and cafes abound in Tavira and the surrounding villages.From June through September, there is an abundance of street entertainment in the form of concerts, street theatre, markets, fairs, processions, etc.

“Beautiful Stylish Apartment”

Reviewed 27 Jun 2013

Thank you to David and his wife for my long weekend break in their very comfortable apartment in Cabanas. The apartment is so well equipped, which is beneficial when travelling with just cabin luggage, especially the cooler bag for use on the beach. The complex is at the end of the village however, the bars and restaurants are all in walking distance of a few minutes. Lovely choice of restaurants eg: Pedro's (next door to Pink House) and Jeronimos's (First restaurant on the right away from the Apt yellow chairs outside) were our favourites. Adviseable to book as they can get very busy. Cabanas is a hidden gem, passing the evenings having a meal and a coffee/beer in the cafe's alonf the front. Staying at Davids apartment is a must or you will miss out on staying in a quiet comfortable home from home apartment in beautigul Cabanas. Definately to be tried even for a short break as ours, of course the sunny weather of 30C was a bonus. Cabanas is a Chilled Place with a Capital 'C'. Thank you to Chris of Home Team who was very helpful providing information about the resort, the complex and the train times to Taveira and much more. (Portugese restaurant in Taveira is Boco just off Bishops Square lovely meal) In main square of Taveria facing their Council House is 3 bars, try the middle one for a coffee or a beer, dont go to the cafe on the end near to the bridge - charges tourist prices. Thank You David for your beautiful apartment and as Arnie said I will be back.

“Lovely apartment in quiet corner of village”

Reviewed 7 May 2013

We have stayed in other apartments in Cabanas Gardens and this one is at the top of the list for facilities and comfort.. The kitchen contains everything needed for self catering and beds and furniture are comfortable. We love the view over the garden and fields beyond where we can see different birds (We think the prettiest are European bee eaters) and hear the odd owl. Also a couple of hares boucing around. Unfortunately the weather was not warm enough for the pool but we have often made use of that before. The village of Cabanas itself is only a short walk away where as previously mentioned there are many very reasonable restaurants and bars to while away a few hours. Our particular favourite drinking hole is Panitas (Casseano's) next to the pizza bar on the front. There we have found pleasant conversation while we watch the world go by and Casseano is always very welcoming. Highly recommended if you are looking for a quiet stress free break. A car is not essential but it is nice to visit the pretty beaches and villages along the coast road. Thanks to David for a lovely apartment.

“Fantastic Appartment”

Reviewed 28 Oct 2012

Our stay at this appartment was great. We loved the view from the Balcony, albeit not a sea view, but a great view towards the mountains. Cabanas is a lovely coastal town with a classy boardwalk walk along the waters edge with great bars the other side of the road. In short: great appartment, great location.

“Beautiful clean well appointed apartment”

Reviewed 14 Jul 2012

A warm welcome on arrival and we were not disapointed by the fantastic apartment. Lovely location close to all the amenities of Cabanas.The pool area was well kept and cleaned everyday. Fantastic weather, Chris the manager and his wife were very helpful and always in the office. We both loved the boat trip to and from the beach. We were really impressed with the cleanliness of both the apartment and the pool area. Well equipped kitchen area. Keith&Angela

“A home away from home”

Reviewed 30 Jun 2012

The apartment is very well equipped and maintained, it was very clean and it had everything we needed. Moreover it was tastefully decorated. It felt as a home away from home. Cabanas Gardens is a nice residence, very well located in relation to the beach and the village. We also liked the fact that there was a private garage for our rental car. Also a big 'thank you' to the people of Home Team who were there for us whenever we needed them. One minor remark: a solid (stable) table and more comfy chairs on the balcony would be an extra pro.

“Fantastic”

Reviewed 19 Jun 2012

We had a really fanatstic stay in Cabanas. The apartment was extremely well equipped and it was clear that a lot of effort had gone in to make the apartment comfortable. The Cabanas Gardens complex is all finished to a really high standard and the 'Home Team' who look after the site were very helpful. Cabanas itself is lovely, great food, lovely beach and it has maintained its local charm. Would definitely go back!

“Wow..................!!!!!”

Reviewed 18 Oct 2011

I feel I should be saying that the apartment was horrible and that Cabanas is a dump...but that would only be because selfishly I want this place to be a secret! Cabanas is absolutely delightful and the apartment is not far behind. The apartment complex being on the edge of Cabanas guarantees almost complete solitude but with close access to shops, lovely cafes and restaurants, not to mention the lovely boardwalk and beach. Fantastic apartment, quiet location and delightful resort.

“I'll be back!!!”

Reviewed 23 Aug 2011

Fantastic apartment and location for us. We wanted a nice quiet family holiday and thats what we got. We had everything we needed at hand and we spent a lot of our time at the pool as the children just wanted to swim. They really enjoyed it. The management team went out of their way to help us with any requests or questions we had. We were quite overwhelmed at how well equipped and comfortable the apartment is. I would go back in the morning if I could!! If we go back to Portugal again, we will certainly be contacting David for a return visit. Therese O Connor
