Just returned form 10 glorious nights at Tavirapad. Merry and Simon met us on arrival and gave us a full tour of their beautiful, spacious apartment which is very comfortable for 4 adults. They also passed on their very helpful knowledge of the area and they also have on hand a full booklet well written giving you all the information you may need even down to the very thoughtful translation guide to all foods including baby foods and milk. Never have I stayed in such a well kept and highly informative holiday home! Just a short walk to all the amenities, bars restaurants. We visited Louelle by bus and train for the day and Cabanas beach by Taxi costing around $12 which is well worth the visit and of course Tavira Beach by Ferry about $1 return which has an abundance of restaurants and bars to choose from.
The town of tavira Is absolutely gorgeous and the restaurants are first class in 10 days we never once had a disappointing meal. We tried the fish Barbeque just before the main shopping mall on the right, you need to get there about 12 o clock in the afternoon to get a seat and they serve fresh barbequed fish, salad potatoes along with wine or beer for just $10 each. the Irish bar along side the river also does great food and many Pizza fast food places were you can enjoy a pizza for $5 and a beer for $1.20 . You must definitely try the secret restaurant just around the corner we ate their twice and the service and food was just marvellous and very reasonably priced .sorry, cant find the euro sign on my computer so used the dollar sign hope you understand when reading.
Thank you for a lovey stay Merry and Simon and the chance of a chat with drinks on our last evening that was very thoughtful not forgetting the simple things in the store cupboard like coffee, tea bags, spices, oil washing up equipment ..
Excellent stay at Tavira Pad. Owners welcomed us with warmth and knowledge of the area. A welcome pack was provided which was a lovely touch. The apartment was very well equipped, just like a home from home, there was nothing missing that we would have liked. The sun terrace had the right amount of sun and shade all day. The area of the apartment was peaceful and only a short walk to large supermarkets, town, railway station and bus station. I would recommend this apartment
I stayed in the apartment only 10 minutes wander from the centre of town. It is certainly all a holiday base should be and more. Easy to find – a short walk from the railway station, or if you arrive, like me, with a hire car, no problem to locate from given instructions with plenty of parking on your doorstep. As it is not that old, the apartment has clean modern lines, generous size rooms and access to sun from the massive rear terrace (overlooking communal gardens) or up on the roof where the views draw the eye over the historic old town to the coast beyond. There is no need for me to recount the furniture and fittings list, you get more than what it ‘says on the tin’. The thoughtful details to equipment enabled me to just get out and enjoy.
The ‘green guide of goodness’ – the folder of helpful information, was exactly that! It was supplemented by pamphlets and brochures of local events and attractions and the personalised map of Tavira on the living room wall, made it clear where places you may need are located. Should you be away to recharge your batteries, reading materials and DVDs are also part of the deal, to say nothing of the spa bath.
All is here for you to make the best of your Tavira time. The property is owned by the Pannetts, who live locally and, as you have probably guessed, want your stay to be problem-free. Whilst available on the end of a phone line, it is most unlikely you will need to take up their time as they have thought out most eventualities and put measures in place.
Tavira is a closely guarded secret, which is what provides it attraction and charm. THA contributed to a wonderful holiday. I shall be back!
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
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.
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 !!!

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.
