About This Listing
Located on the edge of a village within 2 km from the center of the historic small working city of Tavira, founded originally in the late Bronze age and subsequently occupied by the empires of the Phoenicians, Romans, Moors and then the Christians.
We offer a spacious double bedroom with balcony, private bathroom, separate private sitting room with a further balcony where you will enjoy your breakfast with sea and country views. Off road parking and the use of our swimming pool, sun terrace and garden.
Less than 10 minutes away by car, catch a boat for a short trip to Tavira Island, 11 km of sandy beach and clear waters, considered one of the most beautiful beaches with sands that seem to go on forever. Also nearby the beautiful Ria Formosa which is a haven for bird watchers and photographers or walk in the hills and observe the fields of orange trees, heavy with the scent of blossom plus fig, almond, cork oak and medronho from which the famous Algarvian drink is made. This is just a hint of the charms of Tavira and its municipality, an invitation to come and find out more.
We look forward to welcoming you and to share our experiences.
No smoking indoors.
Susan est une hôtesse charmante. Joli maison dans un bel environnement. Chambre et salle de bains impeccable. Prestation exceptionnelle avec en bonus le petit déjeuner sur la terrasse avec vue sur mer. Si nous avons l'occasion nous y retournerons volontiers.
We spent two days at Susan and Gavin and enjoyed every second. You start off with breakfast on the terrace overlooking the pool and views, which guarantees that you start the day in a splendid mood. The house and room are great - comfortable, clean, wifi, nice pool and private terrace/balcony where you can chill out with a glass of wine. My kind of thing!
Tavira is a short drive away and it's a delightful little place with cafes, alleys, restaurants and a very pleasant vibe, especially in the evenings.
We relied heavily on our hosts' (forthcoming) suggestions on where to dine and ways to spend our time in Algarve, and we weren't disappointed one bit - quite the contrary! Cacela Velha, Fabrica beach, Santa Luzia & Sylvia's are some that come to mind. Wish we were still there!
Thank you so much Karl and Roberta, we really enjoyed having you stay with us and hope to get the chance to see you in your Country.
It makes it all worth while when we have guests like you, and the team at ''Sylvia's'' sends their regards too
Susan and Gavin
Susan et Garvin nous ont reçu avec beaucoup d'enthousiasme et d'attention. Notre sejour chez eux etait absolument parfait. La chambre avec terrasse aussi confortable que dans un hotel 4 etoiles. La salle de bain, le petit salon privé etait parfait sans oublier le petit dejeuner etait royal et ses delicieuses figues !
Nos hotes n'ont pas été avares de conseils et de recommendations. Plages, restaurants et environs n'ont pas de secret pour eux.
1000 merci !
Perfect stay in a charming housse
Susann and gavin were the best tourists guide with excellent advise and recommandations concernant place tout visit and Good restaurant! Don t hesitate
Both Susan and Gavin gave us a warm welcome in their lovely home. The room was airconditioned and cosy. The breakfast at the balcony was delicious with fresh orange juice and home made jam.
You do pass the living room and hall of Susan s house so thats good to know.
The house is located nearby Tavira, but a rental car is a must. Susan had great tips for places to go and when we came back after a nice day at the beach we got to swim in their private pool. We enjoyed our 5 day stay and wish Susan and Gavin all the best. Thanks also on behalf of my daughter Julia (11).
We had a great time in Tavira and this was also dued to our wonderful hosts Susan and Gavin! We stayed for three nights and felt like being home. The bedroom is more than comfortable and so is the bathroom with everything you need. Simply perfect is the breakfast which is lovingly prepared by Susan and served on a balcony with sea view. Every time you meet Susan and Gavin in their house, they got new "insider tips" for Tavira, based on what you like to do in this beautiful town. It was a pleasure staying there and we could absolutely recommend this place. Thanks a million!!!
