“We had a wonderful two week holiday in Karen's beautiful home. There was so much space inside and out, and so many different beaches to explore. Karen made us feel really welcome and left some recommendations and basics in the fridge which was really useful when we arrived late at night. She also recommended that we hire a car - which I think is a must if you are staying here so you can make the most of everything the eastern Algarve has to offer. You can get to the Tavira island beaches via ferry or little train at Praia do Barril or drive up the coast. Tavira is lovely with a nice shady square including terrapins in the fountain, great restaurants and a brilliant daily fish market 5 mins drive over the bridge. The flat itself is so comfortable and cool, hot tub is a massive bonus - and there's a hypermarket where you can get everything you need within a few minutes walk. I'd highly recommend Karen's place and the eastern Algarve for a great holiday. ”
Where is it?
Tavira is a very attractive, old town with a lot of character. The river is tidal and opens into the ocean, We are conveniently close to a supermarket, shops, eateries and even a cinema as well as the public swimming pool. Many long and gorgeous beaches are close by, accessible either by little boats (5mins) or 10-15minute driving. Tavira also has interesting salt pans with interesting birdlife- plus the usual storks nesting on top of tall chimneys or lights!
