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

Three floors: basement with three rooms to be rented out, main floor with 2 or 3 rooms to be rented out including share kitchen and share living room. top floor with a very nice Veranda. Each room has its own bathroom and shower. In my opinion its... 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

We stayed at this Guesthouse for 2 nights in mid October 2013, having booked there based on the reviews on Trip Advisor. It met our high expectations from these reviews. Andy took excellent care of us and the Guesthouse very accurately matches the photos on the Guesthouse website and the (average 5 out of 5) reviews on Trip Advisor. Highlights:... More

First off, let me say that I would like my own home to be decorated like Calcada Guesthouse is. Now, onto the really important stuff... My boyfriend and I stayed at Calcada for 2 nights, and we absolutely loved it. You walk through an unassuming front door into a very chic, modern home. Our room was perfect. Super-modern shower, comfy... More

Sought this out on the basis of tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. Well appointed room with access to lounge and roof terrace. Breakfast good with nice mix of fruit, bread and croissants.
