A modern air conditioned apartment with private roof terrace and secure parking
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.

We were two couples staying in the apartment and thoroughly enjoyed our week in Tavira.
Vaughan was there to meet us and show us around and give advise on the locality.,he was also very quick to respond to any queries we had afterwards.The apartment was very clean bright modern and comfortable,we appreciated the food items he left for us in the fridge and also the wine.It is in a nice quiet area with rural views to one side,with a 20 minute stroll into the centre of town it was fine with plenty to see and cafes etc on the way.Tavira itself is a lovely town we whiled away the week seeing the local sights,getting a ferry across to the island for days on the beach and generally enjoying the local cuisine and culture.Left us wanting to see more.
Lovely apartment, spacious, clean and with everything we needed.
Welcome pack exceeded our expectations. Couldn't ask for more.
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!
We were here for 4 days. Very nice place. Clean and tidy.
Everything you need is available and also the fridge is filled when we came.
Tavira it self is at least 25 min walk. We used the car.
Thanks to Vaughan we enjoyed our holiday a lot.
