Interaction with Guests
Mr and Mrs Bento will welcome you and provide the keys and other explanations, if need.
Calm neighbourhood, near the centre, by the apartment you have a supermarket, restaurants are nearby also.
I's a good idea to rent a car so you can visit the beaches around, Cacela Velha or Spain.
To go from the airport to Tavira, around 30 Km, you have the train or the bus. If you rent a car the apartment has a garage.
As at home.
Although we were nearly 2 hours late in arriving because of a delayed flight, following a phone call, Mr. and Mrs. Bento, a lovely couple, quickly arrived and kindly showed us around the apartment and its facilities. The apartment itself was delightful, spotlessly clean, extremely well-equipped and very spacious. There was also a plentiful supply of household necessities e.g. washing-up liquid, kitchen foil etc. which was VERY MUCH APPRECIATED! The location of the apartment was perfect being only a short and easy walk from Tavira town centre and the neighbourhood was peaceful and had a very nice feel to it. The mini market, only 50 yards or so away, was extremely handy and had virtually everything we required. If we can offer any constructive criticism it is to say that perhaps the exterior photograph of the front of the block doesn't convey a true picture of how nice the area is. On that note we also feel that the interior photgraphs don't really do the apartment justice!
We were made very welcome at Gina's wonderful flat by Mr and Mrs Bento. The flat is in a perfect position in a modern block but surrounded by the lovely old town of Tavira. We ate well in a local bar/restaurant in a little square a few minutes from the flat. It was a good time to be in Tavira as there was a very good music festival on and we loved the friendly atmosphere. We have already recommended the apartment to friends and we would love to return.

We had a fantastic time staying in Gina's apartment. The location is great for wandering into town, getting to the beach (by taking a ferry from town) and strolling around finding some nice little restaurants. The Bento's who checked us in we're very friendly and approachable and Gina dealt with all our queries quickly, they were great hosts. The apartment is very clean and comfortable and the bathroom was also very nice. The kitchen was spacious and a pleasant place to cook meals. There is a supermarket downstairs where you can buy food and drink at very reasonable prices. You can get high quality bottles of wine for very cheap. The apartment also has two lovely balconies and a roof terrace which is a nice place to relax and sunbathe. Overall Gina's apartment was an excellent choice and we'll be booking it again!
The apartment is simply perfect: it's very big, very clean, cozy, well furnished and there is everything you need. the beds are comfortable and each household appliance works perfectly. it's in a very good position: 10 minutes walk from the center but the area is quiet. And it is next to a cheap supermarket (open from 8 to 21)! Gina, the owner, was very friendly and kind: even if we coudn't meet her personally, she gave us all the necessary information and she answered quickly to any question. the madam who showed us the flat was extremly kind too. we really recommend you this beautiful flat!regards
Tavira is a beautiful town with terrific beaches, amazing seafood restaurants and a great vibe. Arriving in late September was perfect for us as it was not too busy (touristy), yet still very lovely weather. The apartment - terrific location, very safe, clean, modern and well equipped with everything you could ever need! Very large for two people with terrific balconies with two different views depending on where the sun was :) There are nice cafes and snack shops within a 2 -3 minute walk and a small grocer in the building near the entrance which was handy. Mr. and Mrs. Bento were terrific welcoming guests who showed us how everything worked in the apartment. Lovely people, lovely apartment!
