About our home

Set in manicured gardens - this is a 2 bedroom penthouse apartment for those who enjoy their comforts while having a peaceful holiday. The complex is small so the large pool area never feels crowded. The apartment is beautifully furnished in a contemporary style to complement the cream marble/oak flooring, and has a roof terrace with magnificent views of Tavira town, the sea, mountains and the River Gilao. There is direct access from the apartment to the large landscaped gardens. The private roof terrace is equipped with garden furniture, wind-sensing awning and barbeque - the perfect place to enjoy a leisurely breakfast or evening drink watching the sunset.

The property is fully air-conditioned-there is a unit in each of the bedrooms and one in the living room they are operated via remote control. They can also be used to heat the apartment in winter. There is a small selection of DVDs, books and games for all the family. Video controlled entry system to apartment. The Sky satellite gives all the free to air channels including BBC and ITV-see our website for the full list available. If you have your own Sky card you can bring it with you and use it in the digibox.

Where is it?


The nearest beach is on the Isla de Tavira which is accessed by boat. The boat to the beach leaves from the river in Tavira - 5 mins walk away. If you have a car, you can drive a short distance to St. Lucia where you can take a speedboat across the estuary or alternatively try Pedras d'El Rei where a little train will transport you to the beach. There are plenty of restaurants on both quayside and beach. A slightly longer car journey will take you to the stunning Barrilla beach at Praia Verde.

The Eastern Algarve is a golfers paradise, with 7 world class courses within a 20km radius of the apartment;
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), is an 18 hole golf course in the Ria Formosa natural park-it has been described by golfers as the most breathtaking in the region.
Quinta de Cima, 7km away (6256m par 72 ), opened in 2002; the greens are tricky and well protected by large bunkers. Voted best course on the Algarve in 2004.
Monte rei North (6567m par 72), designed by Jack Nicklaus, opened in 2007. A round of golf here includes green fee, shared golf buggy and bottled water.
Quinta do Vale (6511m par 72) designed by Seve Ballasteros-it sits in a natural valley overlooking the Guadiana river. Seve's promise was to create a course to please everyone no matter what their handicap.

Boat trips can be organized, completely tailor-made to suit your own requirements - glass bottom boats to view the sea-life, barbecue on the pirate ship and view the Algarve coast from the sea, or spend a day fishing.
There is an observatory located 7km north west of Tavira-Casa De Estudo Para Astronomia (CDEPA). It was set up for astronomers and their families and friends to enjoy a visit to one of the best star sites in Europe. It offers a planetarium, Night Observations, Megalithic Astronomy, Introductory courses in Astronomy and Astrophotography. The main telescope is a 20 ins F5 Newtonian and is housed in a sliding roof observatory.
Enjoy a day bird watching in the Ria Formosa nature reserve - the most important birding site in the Algarve. Covering 60km it comprises large areas of dunes and lagoons, channels and islands, saltpans, pools and river mouths.
Why not visit one of the deserted beaches along this part of the coast on a catamaran or cabin cruiser?

The historic town of Tavira is an 8 minute walk from the property with a range of bars and restaurants with many interesting places to visit. There are several small fishing villages close to Tavira town-about a ten minute drive away is is the lovely village of Santa Lucia - with a host of great fish restaurants. The Spanish border is 20 minutes drive to the East from the property with Faro, Albufeira and Vilamoura less than 30 minutes drive to the West via the new A22 (IP1) motorway.
