“Pure heaven.” Cannot fault this townhouse,myself my wife and two children all enjoyed the whole stay very much. Swimming pool great and kids loved it.
Pub on site very friendly with some music nights and excellent pub style food.Enjoyed sitting out on a balmy night with the children having a family barbecue and relaxing. Property is very clean and tidy. Location excellent, nearby restaurants plenty of choice and we had many nice meals out. Overall could not fault this property and have recommended it to my friends and family. Smooth booking from start to finish.
“Immaculate & cosy place in an enchanting location” The apartment is bright and cheerful with new appliances and decor. The place was immaculate and felt like we were the first to visit. Big plus was a fantastic shower! It is perfectly located on the main street of Tavira's quaint historical township. Everything is within walking distance including the cafe's and restaurants which are located just over the Roman bridge. We traveled to neighboring towns and found that Tavira was the most enchanting of them all. Small enough to relax & explore the cobble streets but big enough to offer everything you'll need. The owners were helpful and lovely and we would fully recommend staying at this apartment.
“Excellent Family Holiday in Cabanas” Nine (7 adults and 2 children) of us traveled to this 4 bedroom villa in Cabanas for 10 days in August 2013. The Villa was excellent, the photographs did not do it justice. The decor, space and facilities were top class making our stay thoroughly enjoyable. We especially loved the outdoor facilities; the pool, sun loungers, BBQ and outdoor seating area- they were in a lovely spacious setting.
The location was great just a 5 minute walk from the train station which meant we could travel into Tavira and the 20 minute walk / 5 min drive into (centro) Cabanas made the village very accessible. There was also supermarkets / pharmacy etc within a 5 minute walk. Cabanas itself was an amazing holiday location the beach, bars, restaurants and shops were great, the board walk and cobbled streets were lovely and the 2 min boat ride to the beach was a great novelty for the children.
We were fortunate enough to be there for part of the festival which had a great atmosphere- stalls, live music, fair rides etc. We would most definitely return to this excellent Villa
This small town on the south coast of Portugal has a big reputation. Whether you're looking for historic artefacts, a place to relax or a family adventure, Tavira is the place for you.

Tavira is beginning to embrace the tourist industry by building golf courses, ferry terminals and shopping centres, but there is still an old-world charm that envelops the town.
What to Do
One of the biggest attractions in Tavira is the Camera Obscura. Housed in an old water tower, this 15th-century periscope projects views of the city directly onto the walls of a dark room. Kids will love it!
Ponte antiga sobre o Rio Gilao is at the heart of the city – take a walk along the cobbled streets and enjoy some stunning sights.

Villa Julia, A delightful 3 bedroom Villa with private garden and Swimming pool
We have just returned from a fabulous week away. The villa is excellent - stylish, and has all the home comforts that you need to make it a relaxing week away along with a top quality pool. The owners have thought of everything and it is decorated and furnished to a high standard.
The villa is ideally placed to walk to restaurants and to get the water taxi over to the most amazing beach.
I would highly recommend this villa for a week away. …

O Pomar, House With Wi-Fi, (South Facing Garden) in Cabanas De Tavira
We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to Portugal, the house was lovely, spacious & spotlessly clean, there is a full, very well equipped kitchen for those who want to self cater. We really enjoyed the lovely garden at the back of the house & the swimming pool which is a minutes walk from the house. A lovely large pool area, we never had any problems getting sun beds & the restaurant beside the pool sold great food & drinks at reasonable prices. A fifteen minute walk brings you down to the seaside, such a lovely atmosphere, not overly commercialised, great restaurants & activities for young children. The nearby town of Tavira is fantastic, easy to reach by train or taxi, beautiful town with lots going on, once again a lovely family atmosphere & great restaurants and bars, the house, resort and location ticked all the boxes for us, we hope to return at a future date. …
Terracos de Tavira (Townhouse)
Fabulous townhouse, spacious and comfortable.
We stayed in Michelle’s townhouse for 8 nights in July. We are a family of 5 adults and it was an excellent choice for us. The house is spacious, immaculate, comfortable and very well appointed.
There are sunny and shady terraces for relaxation throughout the day.
We have stayed in the complex previously over several years and are familiar with the location, the town and of course the steps! Michelle’s house is without doubt superior to any other rental property in the complex as it is so well equipped. The kitchen has every utensil you could wish for. The beds are very comfortable ensuring a great night’s sleep.
This house would also suit a family with young children as it is very convenient to the kiddie pool.
Michelle is a most solicitous hostess but we wanted for nothing and enjoyed a very relaxed family holiday.
We would hope to return! …
Casa Ria Formosa
Not long returned had a brilliant time, peaceful, relaxing, clean, beach was a fab boat ride away, would highly recommend …
Good location with clean and well appointed apartment.
Communication was very good. We arrived and was met by Fiona who took us to the apartment. The apartment is clean and tidy with most things you need for a great stay. Furnishings are generally of a high quality except for the exceptionally hard mattresses and squeaky bed springs! The outside space is great with 3 terraces, one with BBQ. The pool area is clean and well looked after but sadly sunbeds are not allowed , so towels on the limited grass area are the only option. The apartment is 2nd floor with no lift and there is no wi-fi , hence the 4 star rating. Walking distance 5mins to Cabannas and boats to the beach, 15 min drive to Tavira. We were allowed late check out as we had an evening flight, this was really helpful- thank you. …
