Apartment in Tavira, Algarve - Quiet Location, 300 Yards from the Old Town Centre
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

Very close to the old town and the river and lots of very good restaurants where they have great Sangria and tapas.
Great property in a great location
Loved the apartment and location
Stayed here for 3 nights. It’s a spacious and very clean apartment with a sunny little terrace area which we used a lot. Very handy for town - just a few minutes walk to all amenities. Would definitely recommend
First time in Tavira, it is so beautiful,some lovely restaurants very reasonably priced
The apartment was gorgeous it was quite big there was 5 Adults staying there and we had plenty of space a lovely big living area and so clean and most of all very central. We were very close to the ferry that takes you to tavira island with the most amazing beach only takes 15 minutes with the cost of €2 return. Lorraine was very nice to us as well she organized our taxis which was good and all on time.will definitely be going back
So central and clean
Can’t fault the property at all. So central and a 2 min walk from center of everything! Lovely and clean and home from home. Deffo be back if you’ll have us :)
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.
Thanks Lynne. So glad you enjoyed your holiday.
We think Tavira is an Algarve gem, unspoilt by tourism.
We would obviously be pleased to have you return next year.
If your mother wanted to visit the castle on the hill she could always catch the street train which has a stop there on the tour of the town.
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.
