Villa
The Villa was completed in 2007, within a small gated development of 14 properties. It is finished to a high specification, air-conditioned throughout and fitted with electric shutters to all windows and terrace doors.Apart from the wonderful year-round weather, there is something for everyone in Tavira, with its pristine beaches, championship golf courses together with the lively bustle of this busy historic town, once the capital of the Algarve. Seville is also worth a visit, just over a hour away by road.Activities include golf, walking, fishing, swimming etc. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: TOURISTLICENCE#7686/AL

Fabulous family holiday
We travelled to Tavira as a family of 4 adults and 4 teenage girls. When we arrived we were greeted by Stu who told us everything we needed to know and gave good advice on places to visit during our stay. The pool area at the Villa was fantastic with very comfortable sun beds and was thoroughly enjoyed by us all. The villa was so well equipped that we could ask for no more although a mid stay clean would have been appreciated. Tavira is a lovely town which is about a 20 minute walk from the villa with plenty of restaurants, bars and entertainment. We hired a car during our stay which was invaluable as we visited Vilamoura, Vale do lobo and Santa Luzia beaches and also spent a day at aqualand near Albufeira. All in all we had an amazing stay in Portugal and would love to return in the future.

Beautiful Villa
This villa is fabulous - over 3 floors & is very modern. The kitchen has all essentials if you want to stay in & cook. The pool is a fine size. Centre of Tavira is approx 10 min walk. Angie was great to deal with - nothing was an issue.

Relax & Unwind
Having just spent a week in the North of Portugal at Boom Festival 2016 - dancing & having lots of fun we were looking forward to a relaxing time at this villa in the South. We were very pleasantly surprised at the amount of space in this villa, which more that suited our needs. The bedrooms were perfect and allowed for us all to have our own space. The living area was more than adequate and the kitchen too was a very good area and ease for cooking & cleaning. Slight problem with the fridge/freezer but otherwise everything was fine. The back outside area was well used and we enjoyed quite a few barbecues here - having lit it up with our own solar lights!. The swimming pool was well maintained and regularly cleaned and provided a wonderful space for relaxing. Needed to be aware of a lot of loose cobbles on both patio at the swimming pool and back area. Overall this was a suburb villa at a very reasonable cost. The walk to the town centre was not too bad, once you got your sense of direction (little signage!) but a dangerous road to walk along and cross which was not so good particularly with a child. Useful additional information to have for the villa would be 1) a clear map and directions of how to find the villa (for arrival) and 2) closest supermarkets and opening times. We loved our stay here and will very likely look at renting again in the future.

Hi Bernard, many thanks for the review, and apologies I didn't respond sooner. Really appreciate your suggestions and will deal with them as soon as we can. The fridge/freezer has been a bit of a disappointment, it is an relatively up-market appliance and only one year old but the "brain" has misbehaved since delivery. Hoping to get a replacement from the supplier. Regards Roger

Map
About the neighborhood
Tavira is called 'the prettiest town' in Portugal by the Portuguese. Located 25kms from Faro and 20kms from Spain, it is a firm favourite for discerning visitors. Tavira is an ancient town with a Phoenician, Roman and Moorish past. It has a castle, over 35 churches and a superb seven arch Roman bridge. On both sides of the River Gilão you can find good shopping with local produce, including fresh fish, fruit and vegetables, basket ware, pottery, ceramic tiles, wrought iron work, and cork and shell handicrafts. Friendly locals welcome you, important whether you are just browsing or wining and dining in the many bars and restaurants, on the river front or in the fascinating cobbled side streets. A short ferry trip takes you to the Ilha de Tavira and one of the best beaches along the entire coast. Clean, safe bathing, protected by the offshore sandbars and complimented by a number of cafes and bars. The 7kms of soft sand easily accommodates all the sunbathers, swimmers, windsurfers and sailors, even in peak season. The scenic location of Tavira, protected by its natural lagoon, offers tranquillity and the opportunity to observe nature and bird life at its best. With a car, there is much to see in the surrounding area and the Tourist Office, below the Castle just off the main square will be a good place to start. Within a few kms are some of the best golfing facilities in the Algarve, good eating in the nearby fishing village of Cabanas and the Saturday market in nearby Olhão. To the East, Cacela Velha offers spectacular views over the Ria Formosa and further afield, take a day trip across the Spanish border into Andulusia and to the historic city of Seville. At night, a treat awaits you back in Tavira. The town is transformed, with its illuminated white buildings and Moorish rooftops providing an attractive backdrop to the variety of restaurants and bars with their tempting Portuguese menus.
