In summer sun beds and parasols can be hired and there is also a small toilet facility and bar. Many of the beaches in the local area have blue flag classification from the EU. Non island beaches are nearby and are a short car drive or bus trip and the details of these are kept in the apartment.


Cabanas village itself has a bank and cash point, an internet café and a couple of supermarkets mingled in with a wide array of bars and restaurants. You can also hire cars, bicycles and arrange daytrips by coach to local attractions. The streets in the village are quiet and you can eat looking out to sea and enjoying the old seafront in the sunshine. Further along the main promenade in the village is the location for the water taxi to cabanas beach and further on again are a number of scenic walks along the seafront through grove plantations.

Location description from manager

The Algarve region

In the 1960s the Algarve became a very popular destination for tourists, mainly from Britain. It has since become a common destination for Germans, Dutch and Irish people. Many of these tourists own their own property in the region. There are Algarve-based English-written publications and newspapers specifically addressed to this community. In addition to the natural beauties and plenty of beaches, the Algarve has invested in the creation of a network of golf courses. Well-known beaches in the Algarve range from Praia da Marinha to Armacao de Pera. A well known spa town is Caldas de Monchique.
The Algarve is a popular destination for tourism, primarily because of its beaches, Mediterranean climate, safety, cuisine and relatively low costs.
Algarve's mild climate has attracted interest from Northern Europeans wishing to have a holiday home or residence in the region. Being a region of Portugal, and therefore in the European Union, any EU citizen has the right to freely buy property and reside with little formality in the Algarve. British expatriates, followed by German, Dutch and Scandinavians, are among the largest groups wishing to own a home in this sunny region of Portugal.
Tourism plays an important role in the economy of the Algarve. A large number of seasonal job opportunities are tourism-related and are fulfilled by thousands of immigrant workers from countries like Brazil, Ukraine and Cape Verde, among others.
In March 2007, the Minister of Economy, Manuel Pinho, announced the creation of the "Allgarve" brand, as a part of a strategical promotion of the Algarve as a tourism destination for foreign citizens.

Conceicao

The city has since been rebuilt with many fine 18th century buildings along with its 37 churches. A 'Roman' (actually Moorish) bridge links the two parts of the town across the River Gilao. The church of Santa Maria do Castelo, built on the site of a Moorish mosque, holds the tombs of Dom Paio Peres Correia and his knights. The church dates from the 13th century and the clock tower has been remodeled from the original Muslim minaret. A bust of Dom Paio Perres Correia who died in 1275 can be seen on the corner of the town hall. Its original economic reliance on the fishing industry has now passed due to changed migration patterns of Tuna and further silting up of the river Gilao. The population is in the region of 25,000 inhabitants (municipality of Tavira) supporting a military base whilst the surrounding area is still fairly rural and undeveloped. This is now changing due to the demands of the tourist industry and opening of golf courses in the near vicinity. The beach for this town lies past the salt pans and is reached by a ferryboat that takes the visitor to the sand-bar island known as Ilha de Tavira, part of the Ria Formosa. The island and beaches can also be reached from the nearby footbridge in Santa Luzia.
In recent years the architecturally attractive town has attracted visitors and house prices have increased sharply. The development of many golf clubs close to the town has also had an effect.

“Super Apartment”

Reviewed 3 Oct 2016

Nicely furnished with great spot on top floor overlooking the pool. Large balcony with just about Sea views, really quiet and great location for lTrain, Beach and Tavira. Met by Fiona who gave me Thevrun down and details i required, optional Wi-Finworks well, Pool is clean and cooling

“Absolutely terrific apartment, beautiful sun terrace, sunshine all the way”

Reviewed 10 Jul 2013

My family and I had a terrific week in the apartment in Cabanas. The apartment is spacious, very clean, well maintained with modern furnishings. But what is particularly appealing is the roof terrace. We ate all our meals on the terrace, looking out over the rooftops of Cabanas to the sea and at night laying back with a cool drink watching the stars, fantastic. The apartment has local shops close by, with a private pool, short walk to the beach bars and restraunts in Cabanas itself. I have two teenagers and they were delighted with the football pitch and tennis courts just down the road. If you dont want to drive there is a railway station 5 minutes walk away which will take you to many destinations along the Algrave coast. I cannot recommend the apartment and Cabanas highly enough, so much so that we re-booked for next year shortly after our return to the UK.
