Fantastic break in Tavira

By Brian Sievewright on 24-Aug-2019

We had a fantastic holiday in Tavira. The property is excellent. We travelled as a party of 6 ie 4 adults and 2 children. The house is very spacious with lots of indoor and outdoor space. The pool was a big hit as was the outdoor eating area at the back of the property. Tavira town centre was a 10-15 minute walk from the house. There’s also a large supermarket again about 10-15 minutes away. We did a large shop on arrival and got a taxi back to the property which cost about €5 or €6. Only slight drawback of walking to town was crossing a very busy main road. The host was very helpful. He attended the property every morning and tested the pool water. The property was in a gated area which was very quiet day and night. This was our second visit to Tavira and we would recommend this property.

Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous!

By Graeme Trotman on 24-Aug-2019

We have stayed in a number of villas over the years but this was fantastic, the photographs do not do the property justice, there is so much space and different areas to eat, sit and relax. John and Jackie the owners were efficient, friendly and hospitable nothing was too much trouble. We were met at the Villa by John who showed us around, the villa was extremely well equipped with everything you needed and more from beach towels, parasols, cool bags, games books, WiFi, air con etc etc. The fittings and furnishings were all of a great quality it was a real home from home. The location was great a 10 minute walk into the heart of Tavira which has a vast array of historical attractions, restaurants, bars, shops etc. We would highly recommend this property and look forward to staying in the future!! Many thanks John and Jackie for sharing your holiday home with us.

The villa is in an ideal location - it is only a 10-15 minute walk into town and a 15-20 minute to a huge supermarket. You can get a taxi back from the supermarket for around 8 euros. The owners' communication before, during and after our stay was excellent and they were there to greet us on arrival. The pictures of the villa don't really do it justice - it is a beautiful villa, very clean, and the layout is fantastic; there are so many different outdoor areas to choose from during the day depending on whether you are seeking the sun or shade. The hot tub was just lovely, and if you sat in the right spot, you had a view out to the sea. We will definitely be returning to this lovely holiday home.

Brilliant villa everything you need and a bit more

By Jill Davison on 10-Sep-2015

We have recently returned from a brilliant week at this superb villa, it is exceptionally clean, has everything you could possibly want including pool towels, great wifi, loads of seating/relaxing areas. John and Jackie were warm and friendly and even went to the bother of getting us some shopping in when we arrived in the later evening. Tavari itself is a lovely location, we were lucky enough to be there when they had a celebration so loads of live entertainment from dancing, singers, cooking demonstrations and more, all free of charge. Loads of local goods which were excellent quality. Have been twice to this area and will definetly be back, extreemly good value for money and an ideal holiday location.

The Perfect Holiday!

By Shaun Aldred on 02-Aug-2015

Fabulous spacious modern villa with everything you need for an amazing relaxing holiday. Pool in the sun all day, hot tub on the balcony and BBQ/ outside dining - what more do you need! Pleasant 10 minute walk into Tavira - historic town on the river with plenty of restaurants/bars and places to visit. Beach at Cabanas is amazing, loved the little taxi ride across(€1.50) and enjoyed the train/ferry journey to Spain. Thank you John & Jackie see you next year!

Fantastic Villa

By on 27-Jun-2015

Have just returned from a week at John and Jackie's villa and have to concur with all the previous positive reviews. We were a group of 6 adults and 2 children (18 months and 4 years). The Villa is spacious and clean and the pictures really, really don't do it justice. The pool was perfect for keeping the little ones entertained and cool during the hot weather. Every amenity we could think of for a self catering holiday was there (including a child safety gate). Location was excellent, a quick taxi transfer from Faro, and a quick walk into Tavira town. The owners were really helpful, both from chatting to them and with the folder of information they provided, they even offered to pick us up some shopping to get us through the night/morning as our flight was arriving late which was a huge help. I would definitely recommend this rental I you are planning to stay in Tavira.

A faultless villa! We rented the villa for a weeks stay to celebrate 3 out of a party of 6, 50th birthdays, so we were hoping for something special....... well we certainly go that! The photos really do not do it justice, there is so much space in all of the rooms. The outside eating area off the kitchen is perfect for getting together for breakfast, lunch, BBQ or just drinks! All the bedrooms are spotless, clean and loads of storage space for the too many clothes you always take on your holiday. The en suites and bathrooms were also spotless and clean. If you need to use the kitchen it has everything you need, including a huge fridge. Jackie and John are perfect villa owners to holiday with, friendly, helpful and very accommodating, you can tell they love their home. A great location too, a nice walk into Tavria, the right distance to walk off your dinner from one of the fab restaurants in Tavira. We definitely book again if the opportunity arises .

Great villa

By on 30-Oct-2014

A big thank you to John & Jackie for a brilliant holiday. The photos do not do the villa justice and the attention to detail is first class. It has everything you could wish for balconies galore and we especially liked the downstairs area near the pool. John and Jackie could not do enough for us even to the point when I left my phone in a taxi John ran me back down to the town centre to the taxi rank. We would definitely return.

My husband and I have just returned from a fortnights holiday at this wonderful villa. As we had driven from England John provided us with local travel directions which were spot on. John and Jackie showed us round the villa which was spotlessly clean and was the best equipped self catering accommodation we have ever stayed in. There are a number of balconies which give an overall 360 degree view. A beautiful barbeque and sitting and eating area is adjacent to the kitchen if you don't want to sit at the dining table in the L shaped lounge or at the downstairs table and sitting area, next to the pool. Last but not least was the pool which was a joy, private and complete with Sun loungers it made our holiday. The care and attention that John and Jackie have taken to ensure their visitors have a lovely stay is evident everywhere and it contributed greatly to our very enjoyable holiday.

On arrival at the villa we were pleasantly surprised, as others have mentioned, the photos did not do it justice. We were met by John and Jackie who showed us round and helped orientate us, they were very friendly and helpful and on hand if needed. The accommodation was very comfortable and every thought had been given, it truly was a home from home with everything you might need to hand, even down to the beach towels that were a great touch meaning that you could travel light. The 3 bedrooms were extremely large, spacious and airy, we had an extra bed put in one and this still left plenty of room. The external shutters meant that the rooms could be kept cool during the day and the air conditioning was very effective too. The inside and outside areas were very well set up, with plenty of space and shade for different parts of the day, especially in the back garden which was beautiful, the best on the row as far as we could see. A short easy walk into Tavira town centre of less than 15 minutes with more than enough places to eat, we would recommend booking anywhere you would like to eat a few days in advance. We spent several nights at the villa enjoying a BBQ in the garden. The beach at Tavira Island is a short boat ride away, these run hourly however we preferred Cabanas beach which is about a 10 minute drive away, easy to get to with plenty of small boats to get you across the estuary. We would definitely recommend both the Villa and Tavira which we love.

Not to be missed

By Derek Millar on 08-Aug-2014

A truly fantastic modern villa with every comfort available to make for a superb & relaxing holiday. We have stayed in many villas over the last 10 years, this one has to be in our top 2. Our teen daughter & her friend have not stopped talking about the villa & the location since we got back. If your looking for hosts to make you feel welcome, we doubt you could go beyond John & Jackie, I arrived at the villa having put my back out & was keen to get some provisions in.... well guess what.... John not only ran us to the supermarket, he waited & brought us back!! Customer service of the highest quality for sure. Big thanks again John.

Stunning Villa

By on 07-Jul-2014

I quick thank you to John and Jackie. A brilliant holiday staying in a beautiful villa. The villa has everything one needs, lovely pool, plenty of balconies to chill out on, and a great area out the back to sit and relax. Ideal location close to the train and an easy walk into town. John and Jackie were brilliant, always willing and able to help, they are very proud of their villa, and rightly so, everything in the villa is of a very high standard. We felt really comfortable and would certainly return. I would recommend the hot tub !
