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.
We spent 2 nights at Susan&Gavins place and enjoyed very much the pure luxury and comfort of the private room, bathroom, living room and balcony. Susan's breakfast, served on the balcony is simply fantastic!
Susan&Gavins recommendations for beach (fabrica) and fish restaurant (vela 2) were great and we know they have more to give...
Thanks a lot!
We enjoy our great holyday in Tavira. We stay in Susan and Gavin house, both are nice amphitryon, careful, with good conversation. They give us very useful information about restaurants and great beaches...The house is nice, the room perfect with bathroom and very well located. The breakfast is amazing, served in the terrace. Thanks a lot Susan and Gavin, we highly recommend to stay in their house.
Hemos disfrutado de nuestras fantasticas vacaciones en Tavira, es un lugar con mucho encanto. Nos alojamos en casa de Susan y Gavin, ambos son unos anfitriones perfectos. muy atentos y agradables. Nos dieron muy buenas recomendaciones sobre restaurantes y las mejoras playas.
La casa es perfecta, la habitacion con el baño estupenda y el desayuno en la terraza maravilloso. Recomendamos 100% que te alojes en casa de Susan y Gavin.
Lovely! Staying at Susan's and Gavin's place was a pleasure and made us feel like being at home. Me and my girlfriend expected a lot when we saw all the reviews, but our stay at their place was even better. Susan and Gavin really took care of everything and the breakfast described in the previous reviews is just amazing and gives you a great start into the day. We definitely recommend staying at Susan's place and will definitely come back once we will be back to Algarve! THANK YOU SO MUCH :-)
Dear Susan and Gavin,
our stay at your lovely and welcoming home had been wonderful. We had everything we needed and even more. Our room and all the supplied facilities exceeded our expectations by far. You were really helpful hosts - especially your dinner advice was highly appreciated!
Thanks for two beautiful nights in your home and a mellow start to our vacation.
All the best, hoping to see you again at some stage.

Wonderful stay!!!! Susan and her husband are so nice! The beedroom and the hole house are perfekt! And the served breakfast was delicious! We highly recommand to stay in Susan's house!! We will come back!!
We were very comfortable with Susan and Gavin. They are really good people, they helped us find the best places around. They made us feel like friends.
The room was wonderful, the bathroom was very comfortable and the whole house is just like to be home or better.
Susan prepared wonderfull breakfast and the terrace where we had it was very nice.
We highly recommend to go to Susan and Gavin house, it is very well located indeed.
fabulous, fabulous, fabulous!!! My husband and I had the nicest time with Susan and her husband - She took care of us as if we were in a 5 star Luxury Hotel. Susan is a great host, she thought of everything a person may need while on vacation and provided that fully. The room was charming, so was the living area she provided for us. She served us lovely breakfast on the balcony each morning and it was a real delight. She also let us use her pool and her back yard which was beyond charming. Overall, I cannot recommend any one better that Susan.
As far as the location - the house is located above the main village with a lovely view of the ocean (in the distance). it is about a 10 min. drive to town and to the beach.
Susan&Gavin are very warm and enthusiastic. The continental breakfast on the balcony is an excellent way to start the day :) The tips about Fabrica, the market and restaurants are absolutely fabulous!
We hope we will be back one day and would definitly recommend staying in Tavira.
Susan and Gavin are wonderful hosts with a beautiful home! We had a wonderful 9 days of breakfast by the pool, cycling around Tavira and enjoying some of the most beautiful beaches we have ever seen! Susan and Gavin give great advice about where to go and what to see! It was a pleasure staying them and we highly recommend staying with them to anyone!
