About Vaughan Willmore
My wife and I purchased our apartment in September 2018, our second property in Portugal. We fell in love with the apartment as soon as we viewed. It is lovely and spacious, and set in a quiet residential location yet within walking distance to the wonderful centre of Tavira, a place we now call home.

Lovely apartment, spacious, clean and with everything we needed.

Lovely modern place with terrific hosts!
The apartment is in a quiet residential neighborhood on a hill above the old town. Well appointed with all modern conveniences including terraces, one with a BBQ and a dedicated section of of the roof terrace complete with furniture and views of the hills and ocean. The ubiquitous electric window shutters ensure that you can sleep as long as you like while the AC/heater/fan units keep you comfortable. The hosts are very welcoming, live just 5 minutes away and provided us with food staples as well as beer and wine to ease our arrival. The location has a dedicated underground parking spot that we never needed as on street parking was always available. The cul de sac is quiet and comfortable walking distance to local coffee shops and restaurants and only 20-25 minutes walk down the hill to the old town and more choices than you can imagine. This was a perfect spot for our wonderfully relaxing stay in Tavira. While the season was just beginning we could easily see it would provide a welcome retreat from the busier season. Very easy access to the N125 made it simple to explore the area both East and West. Highly recommended! Thanks so much, Vaughan and Domenic, for your wonderful hospitality!
Home from Home with great hosts
We loved our stay here as it felt very much like a home rather than a holiday apartment. I had sprained my knee so needed somewhere to rest which was light, spacious, accessible and airy. There are 2 balconies and a lift to the roof terrace. No-one else came on the roof terrace while we were there so it felt very private although a shared space.
There is a large kitchen with everything you need to cook meals not just snacks. We also cooked on the gas BBQ on the balcony on 2 of the nights which was great.
It is a bit of a walk into town for shopping around 25 mins so my husband had to do all the shopping due to my knee. There is a large shopping centre and also a big supermarket. We did not have a car.
We normally wouldn't watch TV on a holiday but Netflix was really appreciated on this occasion.
The apartment is comfortable, clean and spacious, with personal touches and nice interior design elements. The hosts kindly left us some goodies to welcome us including wine and cheese. Vaughan the host was extremely responsive and helpful.
It's one of our favourite self-catering places we have stayed. Would highly recommend.
Many thanks for the lovely review Claire, very much appreciated. It was terrific having you and Craig as our guests! Jus to clarify one small point if I might, the roof terrace is only ‘shared’ in the sense that it comprises of several separate areas divided by low level walls. Each apartment has its own dedicated area (of which ours is the best 😃�). I’m so pleased you enjoyed your stay and I do hope the leg mends quickly. Take care, and best wishes for the future.
Lovely place and great host
We arrived at 7 pm and our host had left us wine and breakfast stuff including bread, fruit and cheese. The apartment was well appointed and very comfortable. We had a great couple of weeks there!
Many thanks for the 5 star review Kathy, much appreciated, and for leaving the apartment so very tidy. I hope John and yourself have opportunity to visit again. Safe travels!
Modern ruim appartement in een rustige wijk vanTavira
Ruim modern appartement met dakterras, dat alles heeft voor een aangenaam verblijf.
We verbleven er met twee personen en hadden dus veel gemak van de twee slaapkamers en badkamers.
Het appartement ligt iets verder van het centrum van Tavira maar is goed lopend te bereiken. De verhuurder was buitengewoon attent en behulpzaam.
Dejlig rummelig lejlighed indeholdende alle nødvendige faciliteter-og mere til.
Vær opmærksom på, at den dejlige lejlighed ligger i udkanten af Tavira, men har man gode ben, evt. en cykel eller bil-er det "piece of cake".
Til lejligheden hører også en skøn soltagterrasse...og der er elevator i huset.
Lejligheden har endvidere et fantastisk godt internet(WIFI)-samt mindst 100 gratis TV kanaler.
Thank you so much for the lovely feedback, it's really appreciated. The apartment is about 20 to 25 minutes walk to the Roman Bridge which, as you say, is quite doable for most people and means you have ready access to the heart of the city without the worry of noise from bars or passing traffic. We're really pleased you enjoyed the roof terrace (we certainly do!) and the widescreen TV and high speed internet access.
The fantastic beaches of Ilha de Tavira, Fuseta and Manta Rota are approximately 15 minutes by car, and Rato Beach just 5 minutes. Benamor golf course less than 10 minutes. The Spanish border is less than 30 minutes’ away.
