This unique property in the heart of the historic town of Tavira in the Algarve, is a delightful self-contained house which has recently been renovated to a modern standard whilst maintaining its original 15th century foundations as well as it's late 19th century house charm. It is still the only house in Tavira situated directly on the river bank as up until the 15th century it served as the town's bridge fortress.

This is the most charming and best located house in Tavira. Take a look for yourself at:
