“Terrific apartment and terrific hosts!”
Reviewed March 19, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Tavira, Portugal. We mainly toured the area, small towns and cities. Drove our rental car to very many places in the countryside and the towns and cities. We found some very nice little restaurants in the small towns. We enjoyed our travelling in Tavira and found Portugal very friendly

“Great Escape to Tavira”
Reviewed February 6, 2017 for a stay in January 2017
1
person found this review helpful

Looking for a respite from cold January weather, we traveled to Tavira where we were welcomed by the gracious owners of this lovely apartment. We really enjoyed exploring the eastern Algarve, using this apartment as our base. It was spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated, quiet, conveniently located close to both the train and bus stations, and a quick walk to the historical center of lovely Tavira and many wonderful restaurants. Traveling here in the off season suited my husband and I perfectly- 60 to 70 degree high temperatures and no crowds. We cannot wait to return! Thank you Merry and Simon for your hospitality and kindnesses.

“Perfect Tavira Pad”
Reviewed November 14, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Just spent a(nother) fabulous week in Tavira, this time staying closer to the old town.
Tavira Pad is a spacious two bedrooms / two bathrooms apartment just 10 minutes walk, 15 minutes stroll and 20 minutes meander from the town's main square. It is extremely well appointed with a comprehensively equipped kitchen, large, comfortable lounge/diner, a large patio and rooftop sun-trap with a spectacular view over the city.
The apartment was spotlessly clean and we were delighted to find the welcome pack waiting for us when we arrived. (That first cupper was a life-saver!)
Very simply - we loved it!
Merry and Simon are the most welcoming of hosts who travelled the extra mile - and more - to make our stay memorable. (Thank you both)
We fell for Tavira on our first visit earlier this year, We now have the perfect base from which to explore the city and the surrounding area.
Ate nos vermos novamente !!!

“Superb aprtment”
Reviewed October 24, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Just returned from 2 week stay in this superb apartment. Everything was provided to ensure a comfortable and carefree holiday. The apartment was spotlessly clean with the bedding and towels being changed after the first week. The amount of internal & external space was enormous and all areas were exceptionaly well furnishes.
Mine hosts Merry & Simon were available if there were any problems without being in any way obtrusive We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in a superb apartment in a beautiful town.
THANK YOU

“Feels like home”
Reviewed October 13, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Tavirapad is a comfortable apartment, fully equipped. It is within walking distance of the charming Tavira where there are many good restaurants. The beautiful Ria Formosa is located a few kilometers away where there are beautiful beaches. The owners are very friendly and give you a warm welcome with wine, beer, water, fresh fruit, etc. They are very interested in their guests and regularly ask if everything is okay. A fine place for a wonderful holiday.

“Perfect”
Reviewed September 15, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

My wife and I have just returned from a 10 night stay at tavirapad.
We found the whole holiday from start to finish perfect from the welcome with much appreciated welcome pack,wine beer cakes and much more to a farewell drink at the secret restaurant (Snackbar Churrasquera Jorge & Lia) a must visit just behind apartment.Everthing in the other reviews are correct tavirapad wants for nothing every conceivable extra is provided,it is in a perfect location very short walk to town and to train station so a car is not necessary.
Favourite restaurant this visit was xico through the square and just up the hill.
As good as tavirapad is without doubt the best part are the owners Merry & simon who are two of the nicest people you could ever wish to meet.
Would recommend and will return next time we visit tavira
