Notre maison

Set in manicured gardens - our holiday apartment is for those who enjoy their comforts while having a peaceful holiday.There are many beautiful beaches in the area to be explored and for those who love golf there are several golf courses within a short drive. The town has many restaurants so if you are into food you will be spoiled for choice-see the restaurant guide on my website.
The complex is small so the large pool area never feels crowded (there are plenty of comfortable sun loungers and we have an umbrella for use in the bases located on the terrace/deck). The apartment is beautifully furnished in a contemporary style to compliment the cream marble / oak flooring. There is direct access from the apartment to the large landscaped gardens. A group of friends or families (up to 5 people) can be accommodated due to the flexible nature of the zip and link beds. The 5th bed is a Z bed and is most suited to a child or small teenager, it can be placed in either bedroom.
The property is fully air-conditioned/heated there is a unit in each of the bedrooms and one in the living room. There is a large selection of DVDs/videos plenty of children's movies, a small library of books and games for all the family eg chess and boggle.To view more photographs and reviews of the apartment and area check out the gallery and guestbook on our website www.taviraapartment.net Our apartment is licensed by the Camara Municipal de Tavira,which means it has been inspected and complies with their safety regulations for fire, gas, etc.

Outside:
There is a small private garden with patio at the front of the apartment accessed via patio doors, it is furnished with table and chairs. There is a private inner courtyard furnished with table and chairs and perfect for alfresco dining as it is accessed from the kitchen as well as the living room and has a gas barbeque. There is a narrow shared balcony off both bedrooms accessed via sliding doors which can be shaded by an awning which is manually operated. The large pool is set in the landscaped gardens and there is also a shallow section suitable for small children. There is a large paved patio which has a shaded area overlooking this children's pool-or you can choose to sit on the loungers on the deck overlooking the large pool. The pool as yet is not fenced off from the garden but a hedge forms a boundary on one side-therefore it is important that parents are vigilant when young children are using the pool as there is no lifeguard.

We just had a fantastic swap to Canada and look forward to many more.We would be very careful with your home and have looked after pets in three of the other swaps we have had so would be happy to do so again.We will email you and also skype/facetime so we can get to know each other before the swap. As it is our second home we can be flexible about when you take your holiday,but we do rent it out so not all dates are available.

Localisation

Quartier

Tavira town is a 10 min walk from the apartment and has many shops, restaurants and bars to choose from. There is a daily market selling fresh friut, vegetables, meat and fish.(NOTE THE WALK TO TOWN INVOLVES 100 STEPS SO NOT SUITABLE IF YOU HAVE MOBILITY DIFFICULTIES) There are several supermarkets in the town including Lidl and Aldi. There are restaurants for all tastes and budgets. There is a mini train which gives a tour of the town and can help to get your bearings-it departs from the riverside near the roman bridge.To get a 360 degree view of Tavira you can visit the camera obscura which is located in a disused water tower in the centre of the town-not to be missed it gives a real time view of the town.
From the apartment you can walk to the ferry boat that goes back and forth to the beautiful blue flag beach on the Isla de Tavira. There are restaurants and a small shop at the beach and sun loungers can be rented. The boat ride over is a pleasure in itself and if you are lucky you may see flamingoes. There are many other beaches in the area-a favourite is Barril beach beyond Santa Luzia which has a mini train and Praia Verde which is a drive away towards Vila Real-it is very suitable for children with it's gentle waves and shallow water.
For those interested in history there is plenty to keep you busy with a walking tour of the town to see the Roman bridge, the castle and the numerous churches.
If you have children with you a visit to a waterpark is a must and there is a new inflatable one at the beach on isla de Tavira. There are also several to choose from-further down the coast, Aqua Show, The Big One, Slide and Splash are a few examples-they are all accessed very easily via the A22 in about 30-45mins-it is also possible to take a day trip coach there from Tavira. Zoo Marine is also worth a visit with dolphin and seal shows as well as water rides and 3 swimming pools to cool off in.There is also a beautiful carousel and other fun rides.

Further afield going towards Spain you can visit Vila Real San Antonio-this is a thriving town with an architecturally impressive pedestrian centre laid out like Lisbon's Baixa district. From here you can take boat trips up the Guadiana River.It is the 2nd longest river in Europe at 778km.

The Spanish town of Ayamonte is only 10km away-it can be reached by ferry from Vila Real or via a bridge from Portugal. It has a wonderfully Spanish feel to it and there is a lovely old medieval quarter with narrow streets and cobbled plazas lined with trees, restaurants and bars. When you have finished shopping in the wonderful array of shops relax with a glass of wine and some tapas.5 mins drive from town is the Isla Canela beach popular with wind and kite surfers-it is accessed via a bridge from Ayamonte.
Seville is only 2.5 hours away by car and you can also visit it using the bus which goes from the bus station just a 5 min walk from the apartment we have done that and it is very convenient not to have a car when visiting Seville as it is small and all the sites are easily accessible on foot. It is a beautiful city to visit especially out of the summer period when it can get very hot.

If you are into golf read below:

With a round of golf costing 30% less in the Eastern Algarve, and with 7 courses to choose from within a 20km radius of the apartment you will be spoiled for choice!

Benamor 4km away (5494m par 71) ranked in the top 10 courses in Europe with great sea views.

Quinta de Ria 7km away (6110m par 72) an 18 hole golf course in the Ria Formosa natural park-it has been described by golfers as the most breathtaking in the region.
For more information about golf in the area have a look at our website for a full guide to the local courses. We have a set of basic clubs at the apartment for your use.
