Very well equipped apartment
Our family had a great stay at this property. The apartment is a good size and was equipped with everything we needed for our stay.
The kids enjoyed the beach which is a short boat ride away and the apartment itself is close to the bars and restaurants of Cabanas.
We would definitely book this property again.
Sunny home from home
This apartment is in just the right position in cabanas, it's quiet but within a very short walk fo restaurants, train station and the beach. The apartment is equipped with every possible thing you could need it was Ike being at home but in the sun ,even a sea view from lounge window and balcony. We would certainly book it again , I have also told friends how brilliant it was.
Dear Alison and Stephen, we are so pleased that you enjoyed your holiday in Cabanas. We try to equip the apartment so that guests feel like they are at home, so glad you were very comfortable during your stay. The sea view is limited but it's nice to see it in the distance. Thanks for your very kind review, Karen and Steve
Great apartment. The perfect getaway.
My wife, young son, and I spent a wonderfully relaxing week in sunny Cabanas in this great apartment. It was exactly what we'd hoped for. Clean, spacious, and comfortable, with all appliances in good order. The town was quiet and welcoming with lots of great seafood and great weather! The local takeaway deserves a special mention :) Hope to return...
Glad you enjoyed your holiday, Duncan, with your family and thanks for sending us the photo showing your son playing on the balcony. It's nice to know our guests find places to enjoy in Cabanas and our apartment also adds to having a great holiday. Hope you can return in the future, thanks for your kind review, Karen and Steve.
Great location in Cabanas this apartment was one of the best we have stayed at in our 6 visits to this lovely village. It was well equipped, comfortable, good size and with a sunny south facing balcony. We received service from Karen who owns the apartment and a friendly meet and greet from Sue who looks after it for her. Went to Tavira Island beach at last and sorry we hadn't been before, it is fabulous and a lovely 20 minute ferry ride down the river. Favourite places to eat this time were the Wine House Tapas Bar for lunch mainly but also just for a drink as the only place that seems to have German lager on draft! Excellent food also at the Cabanas Brasserie, O Escahlo and Sons da Ria but a bit disappointed this time at Sabores da Ria which had previously been our favorite restaurant. Would recommend this apartment to anyone staying in the area.

Close to the Ria Formosa, a nature reserve, the area is ideal for walking/bird spotting/cycling and various water sports. There are also historical sites to visit.
The apartment is located approx 5 minutes walk from the waterfront where local fishing boats take people to the 3km unspoilt beach of Cabanas through the day in season. The boat costs approx 1.50 euros return. There are parasols and sun beds for hire and a bar over on the beach. A short drive down the road will bring you to Manta Rota where you can park and walk onto the beach and there are also many more beaches along the coastline to explore.
Cabanas is approx 40 mins drive from Faro airport, the nearest international airport. Flights also available to Lisbon/Seville. Lisbon is approx 2.5hrs drive and Seville is approx 2hrs. Taxis from Faro airport will cost approx 45 euros each way. There are bus/train services between Faro and Cabanas and the local area. There is also a shuttle bus service-please ask for more details. The local train station in Conceicao is a 15 min walk from the apartment. The Spanish border is 25 mins drive away.
The motorway A22 (currently a toll road payable at local post offices) now runs the length of the Algarve making the western Algarve very easy to explore. The historic town of Tavira is approx 10 minutes away by car. Zoomarine - theme park and zoo near Albuderia is approx 45 minutes by car and Aquasplash about 30 minutes away. Faro is approx 35km west and the Spanish border is about 25km east of Cabanas.
Cabanas has its own small local market selling fresh fish/meat/fruit and veg. There is a local bakery and a couple of butchers as well as a few small supermarkets, that are open daily to approx 8pm. ( Sunday hours are more restricted) There is a bank with a cash machine and a post office. There are a wide variety of restaurants/bars offering freshly produced local dishes. ‘Escalhos’ a local bar, is run by a friendly Portuguese family, providing lunches/snacks/evening meals. The prices are very reasonable, a bottle of beer/glass of wine for around 1.5 euro (2015 rates) and also free WiFi access. ‘Pedros’ restaurant located on the waterfront, offers lunches and evening meals and is very popular at weekends and peak times. The ‘Ideal’ restaurant, located in the heart of the village is a lovely traditional Portuguese restaurant. We have enjoyed meals at both with family and friends. The Sabores Da Ria restaurant has stunning views over the Ria Formosa some of our guests have commented on enjoying an evening meal at this restaurant. The Jolly Sailor restaurant which is just up the road from our apartment is also another location for evening meals - mainly serving meat dishes with 'steak on the stone' being a popular choice. These are just a few of the restaurants available and some also provide a take away service. There are more tourist attractions that can be found on the Western Algarve that can be reached either by the use of a hire car or by booking a tour bus. Trips to Seville and inland Portugal are also an option as well as boat trips/diving that can be organised locally. Bikes can also be hired. We are happy to provide you with more details as required.
