Lovely quiet location
Excellently appointed apartment within a quite location. Everything you need provided within apartment. Close to all local restaurants, bars and shops.
Excellent apartment in a great location
We’ve stayed in this complex before so knew the location was just where we wanted to be. It has a lovely pool and gardens and is just a short walk to the boardwalk.
The apartment was perfect, spotlessly clean with everything we needed for a week’s stay. I’ve never been anywhere that has left a shopping trolley, but what a great idea for going to the supermarket.
Nathalie was a lovely accommodating host. I’m sure we’ll be back.
You want to chill out ?, this is the place for you
Cabanas de Tavira
We really found the Eastern Algarve by accident in late 2015. We have previously stayed at a number of coastal resorts on the Western Algarve over a number of years, however, if you want a quiet, relaxing, and peaceful holiday, do try the Eastern Algarve.
We have now visited the above resort three times in the past 12 months, twice staying at the Cabanas Gardens, at a property owned by Nathalie and Filip.
The modern apartment is immaculate and has all the facilities you could wish for. There is a lovely pool, which is well maintained, as is the poolside sun bathing area. We have been met at the Faro airport by Nathalie one occasion and found suitably priced taxis that we have arranged from the UK on other occasions. The owners have left a couple of bottles of wine (1 from their vineyard) and a bottle of water in the fridge by way of a welcome gesture, which has been well received by us. This typifies the welcoming nature of those resident, in this area. Always very friendly atmosphere and welcoming experience.
You do not need a car if you are staying In Cabanas. Small supermarkets, restaurants and cafes are within easy walking distance. (The cobbled streets and pavements may prove troublesome if you are infirm, but are passable with patience). Within a 20 minute walk is the Conceicao railway station and regular trains at very modest prices can transport you to the Spanish border or back to Faro and beyond.
The beaches are fantastic. Miles of fine golden sandy beaches. On the 2 occasions we used the apartment, late June / July and late Sep/Oct 2016, the beaches were deserted. You can walk for miles, and we did. The small ‘water taxi’ across to the beach, is, in itself and novelty and only 1.50 Euros return.
We have found the dining experience in Cabanas a very pleasant one. Once again, welcoming, and modest prices in restaurants and cafes with a good standard of food everywhere we ate. Drinks of all kinds are really good value in local bars and cafes.
Can’t fault this apartment or the area and we shall return in 2018.
Fantastic apartment , fantastic location
We are just back from a fabulous holiday in Cabanas. This apartment was perfect, in a lovely complex and only a 2 minute walk from the boardwalk. The pool area is very attractive with a nice sized pool and baby pool. The apartment itself is very well equipped overlooking the pool. At first we were a little concerned that the terrace was so open, but they are long enough that your neighbours aren't on top of you. We have a baby so were out on the terrace every night and we had the place to ourselves! Also , the sofa bed is extremely comfortable so it it was as good as having a 2 bed place.
The owners were very helpful and left us a couple of delicious wines from their own vineyard, which were very welcome on the night of our late arrival.
I would definitely recommend this apartment, the complex and beautiful Cabanas.
You could not wish for a more beautiful and spacious apartment, comfortable and modern with all amenities included. A lovely swimming pool and only a short walk to the boardwalk to get boat to beach. All in all a great holiday, will definitely be back.
