Description from owner

Description

The Yellow House is a traditional Portuguese town house. The two main bedrooms are located on the first floor, keeping it cool in the summer and warm in the winter. The open plan living room and kitchen are on the ground floor. The high roof terrace benefits from the abundant Algarvian sunshine in the afternoon and evening. .

The roof terrace is an ideal place to sip a glass of wine or a beer and top up your tan, there is even a BBQ. All the attractions that entice holiday makers to Tavira are on the door step. The restaurants, coffee shops and bars are 2 minutes walk along the old cobbled streets.

Everything is so close, you may decide that you do not even need a car.

Further details

Please keep children under supervision whilst on the roof terrace.

We have advertised the Yellow House as suitable for 3 people, but it would also be suitable for a family of 4 ( 2 adults + 2 children) if one child is young enough to be able to sleep in the travel cot

Location description from owner

The Algarve region

The Eastern Algarve, particularly around Tavira, is a beautiful unspoilt area, with 18km of uncrowded fine sandy beaches and islands, ancient Moorish towns, Castles and charming, almost timeless traditional villages nestling in rolling hills.

The climate in the Algarve is mild throughout the winter months and spring. From March/April it gets warmer in the evenings and by high summer temperatures can reach up to the mid 30s (degrees Celsius) during the day.

Beaches in the Eastern Algarve are wide, sandy and safe for children. They belong to the nature reserve 'Ria Formosa' and are renowned for their wildlife, dunes and river life.The nearest beaches from Tavira are about 3 kms. They can be reached by foot, car, small ferry boat or by a little train, depending on which beach you choose to visit.

Tavira Island has a good selection of restaurants and bars plus a camping ground and is more active in the high season. There is an hourly boat service. Refreshments and meals, sun-beds and parasols, are available.

Daytime entertainment for children can be found in the large water parks on the otherside of Faro, which run most of the year due to the good climate.

The Spanish border is only approximatley forty minutes drive from Tavira. Historic Seville is 2 hours drive and, with its ancient palaces, cathedrals and riverside parks and cafes, is well worth a visit.

Central Tavira

Tavira blends both old and modern ways of life, providing a vast choice of good restaurants, bars and pavement cafes.The town is divided by a river crossed by, amongst others, a beautiful Roman bridge. Tavira remains an authentic and charming tapestry of old and new, a legacy from its colourful past.

Summer brings a variety of outdoor and cultural entertainment to Tavira, including 2 outdoor cinema festivals, the visiting national ballet, and classical concerts and local folk dancing.
Restaurants, cafes and small shops dot the river side.

Tavira has a big supermarket and many shops and amenities plus numerous restaurants, bars and cafes.

There are many beautiful sites in and around Tavira, including waterfalls and hill top hamlets. Fresh water streams, small waterfalls and rivers merge with the warmest seas of the Atlantic which lines the 18km white sand stretch of semi-duned islands, creating plenty of idyllic pockets to discover... A haven for fishing and cockle picking!

Local activities include boat trips, golf, sailing, tennis, hill walking, horse riding, bird watching, sea fishing, waterslide parks.

A short drive away are several great golf courses with coastal views. More information:www.algarve-golf.info

“yellow house”

Reviewed 8 Oct 2013

Excellent location, in between the town centre, the market and the ferry terminal. Quiet. The roof terrace with BBQ is amazing with nice views over the town and the marshes. Kitchen well equipped with sufficient pots and pans to actually cook a meal, Bathroom small but well equipped with shower and bidet. The TV in the house has Portuguese TV, which can be boring. We watched movies on our laptop. There are lots of books in the house left by previous guests. The beds are comfortable. No air-con, but with windows open there is a nice breeze through the house. There are fly screens keeping out the bugs, but insect repellent is recommended. Unlike the city centre, parking is free in front of the house. The big supermarket is less than 5 mins by car, and the market hall is amazing, with fresh fish, tasty vegetables and good butchers. We've been there twice now and would be happy to return.

“perfect for a central, home-from-home, relaxing trip to Tavira”

Reviewed 27 Sep 2012

I spent a thoroughly enjoyable week at the Yellow House. It's very homely and very well equiped with all that you need for a week in the sun. On the ground floor is a comfortable living room and well equiped kitchen (i'm talking dish washer, cafetier, sandwich boxes, ice packs etc). I can't say I spent much time in the lounge (complete with guide and language books) because the lure of the roof terrace was too strong (on the top floor). Here, half the space is dedicated to a loft space that had washing machine, parasols, sofa bed for extra guests. The other half, through a glazed door, led to a roof terrace with fantastic 360 degree views of the town. The owners even provided binoculars to enhance the views of the river, salt planes and sea to the south of the property. It's here that I enjoyed alfresco breakfasts and, one evening, a BBQ using the equipment that was all provided. As the highest house in the street it offers a very private sunbathing terrace too. The middle floor has 2 well appointed bedrooms and a bathroom. The double bedroom has a wall safe (all inlcuded in the price) which was handy. The property is 5 minutes walk to the town centre ferry to the beach (1.9 Euro return) and sometimes i walked to Quatro Aguas to catch a shorter ferry journey (1.5 Euro return). There is a great selection of restaurants, bars, cafes and minimarkets in the town as well as a municipal food market 5 minutes away and a shopping mall and hypermarket 15 minutes walk away across the river. I found the best 'local' restaurants on the other side of the river, which seems less touristy. I hope to go back next year. The rental agent is very helpful and friendly and i would recommend the hastle-free taxi transfer at 45 Euro each way.

“A peaceful and authentic holiday”

Reviewed 2 Sep 2011

This little town house is the perfect get away. Whilst being tucked away in a quiet and pretty little street it is a stones throw away from all amenities. Local cafes on virtually every corner, the most beautiful church right on your door step, and being the tallest house on the street you get to play lord of the manor as you look out over Tavira's rooftops on a sun drenched evening. Well worth a visit.
