About Dan Kang
We took on the apartment without really knowing too much about the region, though it was recommended by friends who had been living there for some time. We have not been disappointed! Tavira is a beautiful old town with a thriving cultural scene and great cafe style living. Regular flights from the UK to Faro make it a great holiday destination and the weather generally guarantees you a long season. We visit as often as we can and we have made the apartment a home from home for us and our three daughters. We've built up a regular customer following with several of our guests returning year on year.
Dan Kang purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Dan Kang chose Tavira
We love the area for its convenience - half an hour from Faro airport and with good rail links for those who like to travel independently. We love the cafe life in the town centre, the musical events and weekly craft and antique markets in the summer and the fabulous restaurants serving great local produce. Tavira has a real cosmopolitan buzz and the people are very welcoming and friendly. Some of the most beautiful beaches are located nearby and there's plenty to see and do throughout the year.
What makes this Apartment unique
We've tried to make it a home from home and generally act on recommendations from guests to improve our service if they request anything additional. There's air conditioning, UK TV channels, pay as you go wifi and a great roof terrace with a barbeque and sunshade for when it get s really hot! Older guests say that they like the fact that there is a lift to all levels including the roof, so if you do have a mobility problem you can still enjoy the sunshine on the terrace! You can be in town within 5 minutes on foot - passing trees laden with figs and olives.

Une charmante ville et un appartement spacieux
Appartement conforme à l'annonce et accueil parfait de la part de Dan. Situé à 5 mn à pied de la ville et 10 du bateau qui vous mènera sur les plages de l ilha formosa ( plage non accessibles directement sans prendre la bateau). Appartement confortable ( pour les habitués des lits bultex en mousse se sont des matelas à ressorts qui peuvent ne pas convenir à certains). Pour le reste l appartement est très bien équipé et la climatisation appréciée à certains moments de la journée. Parking dans la rue ou privé en sous sol . Une très belle expérience. Une partie terrasse privative sur les toits dont nous n avons pas profité qui permet de faire des barbecues. Merci Dan!
The nearest beaches, all of which have the coveted EEC Blue Flag status are great for families and couples alike. There's gently sloping soft sand and allegedly some of the warmest water in the Algarve! Beaches on the Isla de Tavira and can be reached by ferry (around 2 euros return) or water taxi. It is a 10 minute walk to the ferry stop through town. If you are driving or taking a taxi then Barril Beach at Santa Luzia, Cabanas, Manta Rota and Praia Verde beaches are worth a visit.
The apartment is approximately 30 mins drive from Faro Airport on the A22 - a relatively easy journey. There are several car hire companies with collection available at Faro Airport. Taxis from the airport to Tavira cost around 45 euros or you could take a taxi to Faro railway station and get a train. There's also a shuttle bus service from Faro to Tavira which costs around 8 euros per person. We can advise on car hire and can help with booking taxi /shuttle transfers - please ask when booking.
A gentle stroll along the cobbled streets into the centre of Tavira with it's churches, a castle, camera obscura and the river Gilao takes around 10 minutes. The nearest beach is a 10 minute ferry ride from the centre of town. The Western Algarve is around 45 minutes away on the motorway as are fabulous family water parks such as Zoo Marine and Aqua land. You can be at the Spanish border in 40 minutes on the train.
Tavira is a beautiful town which has carefully blended the modern with the old. There are many niche shops, cafes and restaurants serving delicious and inexpensive locally sourced food and others serving as outlets for local artists' products. There are plenty of banks and cash points, a post office, supermarkets (Aldi, Lidl and Pingu Doce) for those who want to self-cater and great food, antiques and bric a brac markets close by. In the summer months you can stroll along the river and enjoy the communal entertainment in the town square. The irish bar on the riverside also regularly hosts live bands. The train service is cheap and reliable if you want to travel by public transport along the coast.
