                      Visiting the Saturday farmers market in Ohio is a must do. Tavira is also a beautiful town worth exploring, it's know to have the most churches and safe and happening night life. A nearby beach is one of my favorite beaches to spend the day.


                      Manager info

                      Year Purchased: 1985

                      About: My husband and I were both born in Portugal, but grew up in Canada. Influenced by our parent’s love for their homeland we both spent many summer vacations visiting family and enjoying the lovely beaches in the Algarve. When we were married and started a family we found the Algarve to be the perfect place to take our kids, not only to visit with relatives but to also enjoy their parent’s beautiful birth place. We all love the ocean, the resort and the Portuguese lifestyle. Our children are all grown up now, and still look forward to spending time in “Casinha Rainha” the nickname we now apply to the chalet. There is no question that this little place was the best investment we made for our family.

                      Why Cabanas de Tavira:
                      We chose to invest in the Aldeamento of Pedras da Rainha because of the location and the great resort amenities. It became our home away from home where everyone spoke various languages, including English. This made it easy for our children to develop long lasting friendships. Of all the family vacations we’ve taken over the years, we have the fondest memories of our stays in “Casinha Rainha”.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
                      The chalet “Casinha Rainha” is located in the eastern Algarve which remains an unspoilt part of Portugal and the little fishing village of Cabanas is a true example of an unspoilt treasure. While our chalet is located in the modern resort, guests enjoy the splendid beautiful clean beaches, the traditional fishing boot crossing to the beach, the open markets, the seasonal festivals, and the traditional folk dances. Cuisine If you're looking for fine Algarve cuisine in a prime, beachfront location, then you’ve come to the right place. Cabanas has a large variety of excellent restaurants. Our favourite is the waterfront Pedros Restaurant. They offer a fabulous menu of traditional Algarvian dishes that tourists can enjoy, with a wide selection of wines, and the best sangria, to make your meal that little bit more special. If you wish to eat in, then you must visit the daily fresh fish, meat and vegetable/fruit open market, where the vendors are friendly and more than happy to offer you traditional family recipes. There are two MP supermarkets, one in town and one conveniently, located in Pedras da Rainha Resort. You can also find various local bakeries and 3 butcher shops.
