“Characterful, central and delightful property”
Reviewed 23 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Spacious, characterful, ideally placed property in the heart of Tavira. We really enjoyed our stay. The owner and house minder were flexible and responsive to any requests. The house itself was fun of character with an amazing balcony looking straight over to the river Gilao and the Place de Republica. We could hear the fish doing somersaults in the river and the varied musical talents of Tavira. We will definitely stay again.

“Unique spot”
Reviewed 23 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

House on the bridge is a very nice and unique place to stay in the old centre of Tavira. Located by the river it's an old and spacious house with wooden floors and furnished with vintage furniture. There's airconditioning and fans to help fight the hot summer in Tavira. From the terrace you can see the tide that almost dry up the river during full moon and the lovely bridge that brings you to the central square. Pilar, the householder, is very helpfull and even borrowed us parasols for the beach. Only drawbacks (when travelling with teenagers) is no wifi/internet and just one bathroom. The wifi part forces you to go to one of the cafes every night for a drink - a sacrifice you have to make..

“Beautiful house in perfect location”
Reviewed 11 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

House fully equipped with all necessary amenities for our week-long stay.
Terrace v suitable for a BBQ - with excellent local supermarkets this is a must-do!
Local restaurants excellent - in particular Bica. Their bottled red house wine a must.
Try cafe in Lidl, opposite the train station, believe it or not, Their expresso and
Pastel de Nata for €1.20 a real deal.

Faro and Vila Real worth a visit by train if you have no transport.

“The best location in Tavira”
Reviewed 13 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Casa Da Ponte (the house on the bridge) is an elegant and beautiful house, and is in the very best location in Tavira, next to the old Roman bridge. In the evenings you can listen to wonderful music that drifts in over the river. Dinner on the terrace was a delight, as was eating out in the many restaurants very nearby. The house itself is spacious, and can accommodate a large family. There were five of us, and it was perfect. Everything you need is provided. The house is naturally cool, but has aircon if needed. All in all a fantastic place to stay and we will certainly return. Highly recommended.

“Ideal Location”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This spacious and airy house was ideal for a family of six. We enjoyed evening meals on the terrace overlooking the river and the center of town whilst listening to the beautiful sounds of nature and the various activities taking place in the nearby surroundings. This house is ideal for those who wish to spend quality time together and not hooked on technology. The beach is only a 15 minute boat trip away;takeaways and restaurants are all within walking distance. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for clean, comfy and unique accommodation in Tavira.
