About Denis Sullivan
As a Wealth manager, a number of clients asked me about buying property abroad. This resulted in me travelling to many of the holiday destinations in Europe to try and establish the best place to buy a holiday home. I visited the Canaries, Spain, Italy, France, Cyprus (north & south), as well as Portugal. Of all the destinations, the Algarve came out top for consistent weather, ease of access from most UK airports, short journey time, low crime, without too much development and most importantly, friendly locals. In the end, having visited Tavira through a recommendation, my wife and I fell in love with the place. We bought an apartment as it was very central and secure. I haven't come across anyone yet who has stayed and not loved it. Denis Sullivan

Fabulous, spacious apartment in a great location.
The apartment was really spacious with all the comforts of home. There were just the 2 of us but tons of room for 4. We loved Tavira with so many lovely restaurants on your doorstep. We hired a car and enjoyed visiting the surrounding beaches, particularly at St Luzia and Cabanas. Lorraine provided a great welcome and was on hand if we needed her but we had no problems at all.
We are already thinking of returning next year and bringing my 80 year old mother - the area is flat so should suit her well. Thanks for a wonderful holiday.
Great apartment in a fantastic location
We had a fantastic time in Tavira and the apartment was great. Tavira is beautiful, has a lovely relaxed and friendly vibe and plenty of delicious food choices! The apartment had everything we needed, was spacious, clean and in a fab location! The sun loungers to use by the pool were great. This was our first time using HomeAway and everything went very smoothly. We would love to return in the near future. Many thanks.
The apartment was for us 2 persons all what we needed to have a pleasant stay.
We know Tavira from other stay's. This was the first time in this apartment. The apartment is situated near the centre of Tavira. That makes it very convenient for shopping, the market, restaurants, railway station, for making walks, bicycling, etc. If you like golfing, you can choose golfcourses nearby from 10 to 40 minutes. The apartment is well equipped, nice terrace, good garage for parking your car.
Great Location! Spacious apartment in Old Tavira.
This is a newer apartment but right in the old town. It is comfortable, clean and is adequately appointed. We spent a wonderful month in beautiful Tavira. Be aware if you are not from the UK that the rental is in British pounds. Wi-Fi is not included in the price and TV has only Portuguese channels. Lorraine, the manager is fantastic and helped obtain Wi-Fi and Netflix.
Everything about the apartment and it's location was excellent
Spacious, clean and well equipped apartment.
Excellent service from Lorraine who arranged transfers to and from the airport.
Spacious well equipped apartment
Really impressed with this apartment, it was huge and had everything you could want for a self catering stay. The property manager was really helpful and was there to greet us on arrival which was useful. The property is well located very close to the centre so a car isn't really necessary. It does back on to a road so there is some traffic noise from about 7.30am, but as an early riser this doesn't bother me. The pool area was nice and clean although quite small, in busy summer months it may get a bit overrun but no problem when we were there as the complex was quiet. Tavira itself is a great place to visit, it's a lovely old town with a great choice of quality restaurants and the beach at Island of Tavira is wonderful. There's the added bonus of a railway station which gives you the opportunity to visit further afield without needing a car. Loved it here and will definitely come back.
Thanks Sonia. Glad you enjoyed your stay in the apartment and and Tavira.
The whole coast is a delight. North Norfolk with sun!
Miles of beautiful sandy beaches are easily accessible by a short ferry ride or a ten minute drive. Boating sailing surfing fishing are all available and the water is much warmer than on the Western Algarve.
The coast forms part of the Formosa Natural park with all types of birds including storks, flamingos and cormorants.
Faro is the nearest airport 30 minutes drive away along the motorway.
Local supermarket, shops, banks, restaurants, just around the corner.
