“Great guest house in a great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2012

Just got back from a two week stay at Calcada guesthouse and I have to say that it was lovely.

First impressions were excellent. You immediately know the place is brand new as you come in through the front door. The owners, Andy and Tamsin, are really welcoming and helpful on arrival and once you've checked in, leave you to enjoy the communal space at your own leisure. If you have any queries, however, they are always on hand to advise.

They have clearly spent allot of time and money renovating the building into a relaxed but stylish place to use as a base from which to explore the surrounding area. The place is airy, bright and clean and the optional breakfast, either served in the lounge or on the roof terrace, is more than adequate to see you through until dinner.

It's location is perfect being a two minute walk into town, where there are many great bars and restaurants, tucked away in one of the quiet, cobbled backstreets that lead down to the river. If you don't want to walk the two minutes into town to eat or drink, there is the excellent Tavira Lounge just a few paces away.


Tavira it'self is well worth a look round and boasts a great beach on the island.

Would I return???

Definitely!

This lovely place has been built to a very high standard and nestles in the centre of pretty Tavira, so close to everything. Stylish from the moment you walk through the door into the cobbled hallway, but with a homely feel. There's a comfy communal sofa area, full of light from a wall of glass and the spotless bedroom is nicely done.The roof terrace was a good place to sit out in the sun and a great veiw of the town skyline. We felt very welcomed by the owners, who served us a glass of wine when we checked, which was nice! Had a very comfortable sleep and I liked the quality bed linen, which often guesthouses don't seem to have. The continental breakfast was very sweetly presented too. The attention to detail at this place is very much appreciated (Like the bottle of water by the bed) and it's nice when a place is even better than you expect it to be. Enjoy.

Room Tip: A couple of the rooms have a little outside terrace area.

I stayed at the guest house for 2 nights during March. The weather was beautiful and Tavira is a lovely town on a river.
I felt really welcomed to the guest house by the young English couple who run it. It is brand new, clean, relaxing and very hospitable. There is a roof terrace, which over looks the town and river, where you are welcome to relax, read, chill out, even have breakfast.
The finishings of this guest house are amazing. The rooms are all on suit with a wet room style shower. The owners told me how they made & upholstered everything they could, which amazed me as it was so professional.

I really recommend a visit to this guest house. It is right in the centre of Tavira, where there are cafes, boat tips, beaches, shops, markets, restaurants and more.

Room Tip: There are 2 rooms down stairs which have an outside patio with in the centre of the house.
