Calcada Guesthouse is ideally located in the centre of Tavira, in a quiet street but next to the animated and noisy ones. The guesthouse looks good, smells good, and feels like a family house: no reception here, you simply get the key. Tamsin and Andy are around in the morning, or whenever you need them, otherwise the house is yours.... More

Fantastic location in the heart of the historic quarter 2 mins from centre of the town. Fabulous views of the town and river from the roof terrace. Best guest house... More

Andy and Tamsin are the perfect hosts. helpful and friendly. The guest-house is placed in the centre of the historic part of Tavira. Rooms are light, fresh and clean. I would recommend that you ask for a room at the same elves as the living room, as the rooms located downstairs are smaller and without the nice view. I would... More

We have stayed 3 nights in May 2014 in the modern and nice furnished Calcada Guesthouse and enjoyed the friendly atmosphere, comfortable room / bed and good breakfast including fresh orange juice and fruits served every day on the roof terrace with its beautiful view over the old city. It is a very good price-performance ratio. The ownerTamsin and Andy... More

Like all the other reviewers this is the "Best Place" to stay in Tavira. Andy & Tamsin are wonderful hosts and have thought this through perfectly. We stayed for 9 nights and felt we were staying in a friends home rather than a very upmarket B&B.The beds are so comfortable and the breakfast served on the roof terrace is something... More

Guesthouse beautifully decorated runned by very nice couple Andy and Tamsin who do their best to make you feel comfortable. Best breakfast ever, very good bed and right in centre of Tavira, yet a quiet place to sleep. Probably our best guesthouse in Algarve, would recommend this highly.

The many splendid reviews on TripAdvisor suggest Calçada Guesthouse is something special and it most certainly is - Andy & Tamsin welcomed me & my girlfriend so warmly that by the end of our five night stay I felt I was saying ciao to old friends. We will surely return! We really appreciated their recommendations on arrival and throughout as... More

Fantastic place and the nicest hosts ever! Beautiful location, great design of the converted old Tavira's house, cosy and stylish. Roof top terrace is amazing for breakfast or afternoon chill out with a glass of local wine and the view across the rooftops of the old town... Will definitely come back! Thank you Tamsin and Andy!

I chose calcada guesthouse based on the excellent reviews from this site and another well known review site on the Internet. I wasn't disappointed! From the moment we booked, Tazmin and Andy were brilliant. We received an email prior to arrival, helped provide details of the nearest car park (we parked at the bus station which was only a short... More
