About the neighbourhood
This beautiful town of Tavira mixes both old and new elements of the Algarve. Tavira is a charming small town with the river Gilâo running through the centre under a very historic Roman bridge. Not to be missed: the castle ruins and exquisite churches. Relax at one of the many riverside restaurants and pavement cafes that offer all types of cuisine. The meandering streets lead to a riverside park and square where there is often public entertainment on summer evenings, at other times, piped classical music is to be heard around the town.

Take the boat across to the pretty Isle of Tavira where you can sunbathe or swim in the pleasant waters of the Atlantic.

The villa is a perfect location for golf in Portugal - and in Spain.
Portugese golf courses: Benamor - 15 mins, Quinta De Cima - 20 m...
