Why Andy Thorne chose Tavira
Tavira is a beautiful unspoilt town, and this apartment's central location in addition to the large private roof terrace and large communal swimming pool, make it perfect for us. we enjoy visiting in all seasons.
What makes this Apartment unique
Central location. Large parking area straight across the road. A large roof terrace with views over the town. A large swimming pool and terrace, with petanque courts, also with town views. Handy for walking to restaurants, the rail station, the bus station and supermarkets.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Centrally located property in Tavira close to restaurants and amenities
My sisters and I stayed in this apartment we chose it for its location as it is close to the castle and riverside bars and restaurants. The apartment was very spacious and comfortable and had everything we needed for our holiday. We used the roof terrace for sunbathing and evening drinks everyday and found the small fridge up there useful for storing water and wine. Having a pool was a nice touch as not many properties in central Tavira have this. All in all a very good apartment and we would stay there again.
Beautiful May Halfterm Holiday in Tavira
Our 3 generation family very much enjoyed our stay in this comfortable, spacious apartment with fabulous roof top terrace and swimming pool (good size). It is well equipped, has air conditioning in all bedrooms and the living room. The property is in easy walking distance to the pretty old city centre that is well worth exploring. The walks to the boat service to Ilha de Tavira, to the train station or to the supermarkets are slightly longer, but a car is not necessary for most people. We did use the car to explore St Luzia and Praia do Barril. Alternatively a trip on the electrical Tuktuk (some offer to pick you up from home/hotel) can also take you there. The property management was efficient, our late night arrival was accommodated without problems. The only thing that could be explained a bit clearer on handover is the rubbish and recycling system (there are 4 different bins across the road): we did not know where to put general waste as we thought organic waste should not include any general waste. We only scored 3 stars for cleanliness as the floors were not cleaned properly before our arrival. They were swept ok but likely not washed, we ended up with black feet after walking around barefoot.
The owner Andy Thorne was easy to reach before our trip, always responded promptly to any query we had. This was our first booking via HomeAway and his excellent communication throughout the booking process encouraged us to book via this platform in future again. Overall we would definitely recommend this property to family and friends and would gladly return ourselves for another holiday.
Tavira is the place to stay in the Algarve
This apartment was the perfect place to spend a month in southern Portugal. As four adults we were very comfortable with plenty of space to be together or retreat for private time. Well appointed kitchen and living/dining room. Great location for walking into and around the city. We enjoyed the rooftop terrace to relax, barbecue and hang laundry. Would definitely stay here again.
Wow, we're glad you enjoyed it so much. We'reback home ourselves now, and we really appreciate that you left such a positive review. We look forward to seeing you next time?

Very good accommodation in a charming town
Spacious, well equipped and comfortable apartment in a good location within easy walking distance of the centre of Tavira. Good service from property managers.
Thank you very much for your review of our apartment; we hope you continued to enjoy your trip to Tavira as much as you were doing when we last heard from you.

Perfect location, perfect property
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this apartment. 5 adults, lots of space in the communal areas and the bedrooms. Having two bathrooms was a great help. Kitchen was well equipped. We didn’t use the dishwasher or washing machine but useful to know they were there. Weather wasn’t good enough for us to use the terrace or pool. A real shame. The lift was a bonus for my elderly parents. We have stayed in Tavira before so we’re impressed with how close we were to the town centre and bus station. Tavira was quieter than our other visits but it was the end of the season. Lots of great places to eat at similar prices to home. Supermarkets galore to choose from, we love a good look round and to take advantage of the cheap wine which you pay more than double for at home! We would definitely use the apartment again, even if the cockerels like to crow from 3am to 7am!! Take ear plugs.
Amazing Apartment in perfect location
Andy’s property was exactly as described and had everything you needed for a stay in this beautiful town. The beds were really comfortable, the kitchen well-equipped and the pool was a massive hit with two teenage girls.
The location was perfect, in the old town and just a short stroll from the castle, gardens and superb views. A two minute walk takes you to the bus station and a 10 minute walk to the train station. I would highly recommend this place to everyone.
Thanks for leaving us such a nice review. We're really happy you liked the place so much.

Tavira is situated on the Ria Formosa which produces sea salt and has a myriad of wild life including flamingos and pretty butterflies. The water ways are busy with yachts, fishing boats and ferries particularly in the summer when visitors hop across the water to the Island of Tavira. The Island has a good choice of restaurants in an otherwise un-spoilt area of outstanding natural beauty. Historical Tavira, with its many restaurants, cultural events and the famous beach at Ilha de Tavira, is easy to explore from this centrally located apartment
