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!
Wonderful apartment and very friendly people!
apartamento excepcional en un pueblo maravilloso. No se puede pedir mas, ideal para conocer las playas del parque natural de ria formosa. Todo perfecto
The stay in Tavira was wonderful. The appartment is very lovely and in a short walking distance to all spots in town. With the train stopping at Porta Nova you can easily reach all destinations in the near area. So a big 'thank you' for such a recommendable offer in one of the nicest towns of the Algarve.
We really enjoyed our stay in Gina's wonderful apartment in Tavira. It's one of the nicest apartments we've ever stayed in. It's light, airy, spacious and spotlessly clean. The apartment has everything you could possibly need and more.
When we arrived we were met by friends of Gina's who were lovely and helpful and took time to show us how everything worked.
The apartment has all mod cons (dishwasher, air con etc.) We like cooking (and Tavira has a great market) so were really happy that there were lots of good utensils, pots, plates etc.
There is a balcony at the front of the apartment and at the back, and a private roof terrace, so you can sit in the sun at anytime of the day if you wish. We loved to sit on the balcony, off the kitchen, and eat and drink while watching the sun set in the evening.
The apartment is a short walk from Porta Nova train station. Nowhere is very far away in Tavira and from the apartment it's only a five minute walk to the Roman Bridge. We liked being so close but not being right in the touristy heart. The location of the apartment is very nice, safe and quiet. There is a small supermarket in the same block as the apartment and plenty of cafes locally for a morning coffee fix.
We hired bikes and cycled the designated cycle ways along the coast either side of Tavira. You can put bikes on the train (at no extra cost) so you can cycle one way and then catch the train back to Porta Nova!
We had a great holiday in Tavira and would love to return and stay once again in Gina's apartment.
It really does live up to its description of wonderful.
We where really overwhelmed how big and nice Gina's appartment was. Very, very nice. Everything there you could ever need. Just great. Thank you, for hosting us, Gina!
We where warmly welcomed by two ladies who showed us around. The appartment is in footwalking distance to Tavira center, fully climated, whith sun-terrace on the roof and balconies to both sides of the building, so that you can decide whether you prefer shade or sun...Just in front it is easy to find a parking (website hidden) was really wonderfull!
