Yes, peerless is the only way to describe this amazing establishment. What Andy has created here needs to be experienced to be believed. The level of service and attention to detail is incredible. We had a family wedding in Tavira last week and it was our great good fortune to find this oasis of luxury. The breakfast alone, in time,...

Previous reviews have said it all-almost! We ve just had a most enjoyable 6night stay in calcada. What a lucky find. From the moment we arrived we were treated to gold star treatment. The house is so comfortable, spotlessly clean and the breakfasts just superb. Andy, Daniel and Andrea could not have been better hosts , nothing was too much...

Everything was perfect during our stay at Calcada Guesthouse ! The house is really beautiful, it's been fully renovated and everything was carefully thought and decorated with so much good taste ! Our bedroom was extremely clean, cosy and comfortable. The rooftop is awesome and offers a great view over Tavira. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer...

Although we have visited Tavira several times previously, we were unaware of this little gem tucked away up a slight hill in a side street not far from the town. We found it when searching the web for somewhere to stay whilst attending a family wedding. Owned and operated by British couple Andy and Tamsin ( and ably assisted by...

This accommodation was the best we experienced during our 4 week trip of Portugal. The Guesthouse is well located and only a 3 min walk (75m) from the Bus Station, so don't bother to catch the train. The Guesthouse has a very homely feel about it and we were made very welcome, the upstairs terrace was a great place to...

This is a wonderful boutique hotel in the older renovated part of Tavira, a beautiful town in eastern Algarve. Everything is correct here. Location, successful architectural redesign as a small hotel, quality of the room, great bed, delicious breakfast. We will return.

Most importantly, The Calcada Guest House is clean and well maintained, with air conditioning that is very effective and bug screens at the windows. Breakfast is excellent, served on the terrace which is a great way to start the day. All the staff are excellent, and the whole place is very comfortable. I cannot rate this B&B too highly. They...

Tavira is a lovely little port on the Algarve with many places to eat and a ferry to take you onto the enormous beach. The Calcada guest house is ideally placed close to the centre of town and near to a free parking square. It has been modernised and is tastefully furnished and decorated, being also spotlessly clean, modern and...

What a fabulous place! It's simply magical...the fabulous breakfast is served on the roof terrace overlooking the river and the cobbled streets and white washed houses of the old Town of Tavira, the hosts were very welcoming yet not intrusive...we took our 11 year old who said it was better than any hotel!
