A fully modernised and tastefully restored townhouse centrally located on the West bank of the River Gilao in a very quiet street, just a few minutes walk from Tavira’s main square, historic sights, riverside amenities, restaurants, shops, banks, and ferries to the beaches. The house is single-storey, and high ceilinged, and while it is built with three bedrooms (and is proportioned accordingly) it is offered as two-bedroom accommodation only, for a maximum of four adults. The restoration work was completed in June 2013 to a very high standard and the house has been meticulously maintained since then to keep it in top-class condition. It benefits from a large rear patio (unusual in Tavira’s historic centre) which can also be accessed directly from the street via a side door and entrance passageway. There is free parking available nearby.

The house is registered for rental under Tavira Council license no. 5246/2014.


The two bedrooms can accommodate a maximum of four adults. They are accessed from the main entrance hall. Both have double beds (one 180x200, the other 160x200), wardrobes, reading lights, and are double-glazed and air-conditioned.

The sitting area has seating for five people, and the dining area seats six.

The kitchen is fully equipped.

There is a large bathroom in the main house with a walk-in shower, double washbasin and WC. It has under-floor heating for winter use. There is a separate shower room in the patio area with shower, washbasin and WC. A hairdryer is provided.

The large private patio (approximately 50m2) at the rear of the house can be accessed via the side entrance from the street. With it's dining table and chairs, parasol, and sitting area it provides a very practical and pleasant extension to the main house for al fresco wining and dining.

The utility room at the rear of the patio houses the washing machine, clothes lines, ironing board, sun loungers, etc. It is perfectly dry and can be used for the temporary storage of suitcases or golf clubs.


It is regretted that pet animals cannot be accepted, and that rentals are restricted to adults only as the house is not suitable for children.

Bookings are in principle from Saturday to Saturday, particularly during the high season from May to September.

Bathroom towels and bed linen are provided, though not beach towels.

A cleaning service is provided at the end of a stay.


The area is known for the high-quality beaches that run along the ocean side of the Ria Formosa Natural Park. The house is less than five minutes walk from the ferries running in summer to the Ilha de Tavira with its splendid beach, bars and restaurants. Quieter nearby beaches to the west of Tavira include Praia da Terra Estreita and Praia do Barril. East of Tavira beaches which include Cabanas, Fabrica, Manta Rota and Praia Verde stretch along the coast towards the Spanish border.

Tavira is 36km by road to the east of Faro airport on the coastal N125 road, and 40km via the A22 motorway. The town can also be accessed from Faro airport by public transport, taxi, or shuttle service. The use of a car in Tavira is not essential. A local railway service runs the length of the south coast of the Algarve.

The Spanish border is 35km to the east, and Seville a further 135km. Seville, like Lisbon, can be reached by direct bus service from Tavira.

The Ria Formosa Natural Park (and the coastal lagoon that it encloses) extends from just west of Faro to a point some twelve kilometres to the east of Tavira, and is considered an important bird area for both resident and migratory species. Bicycles can be rented locally to explore the area and to ride the Algarve Coastal Cycle Route.

Just perfect!

By Julia Goldsmith on 09-Jul-2022

We had a wonderfully relaxing week at Richard's property. The house was immaculate, spacious and well equipped, with a lovely, private courtyard garden at the rear; the information folder was very comprehensive. The house is very centrally situated with a small grocery store nearby and the ferry just two minutes' walk away. Tavira is a beautiful town with lots of character; there were plenty of restaurants nearby. Richard was very helpful throughout and responded quickly to all my emails. We would definitely recommend this property.

Brilliant real home from home

By Jill & Alan on 05-Mar-2022

We had an amazing week in this lovely bungalow, traditional but with all the modern necessities. Lovely comfortable king sized beds, brilliant outdoor area with comfortable eating/lounging. Very conveniently placed for all Tavira has to offer (which is a lot). Richard provided first class communication and a very thoughtful welcome pack awaited our arrival. Would highly recommend.

Deux semaines fort agréables!

By Evelyne S. on 08-Nov-2018

Nous avons passé deux semaines fort agréables dans la maison de Richard dans la ville de Tavira. La maison, d'architecture typique de la région est très bien localisée, proche de toutes commodités, dans une petite rue calme et à deux pas du centre animé de Tavira. De plus Tavira est une charmante petite ville, qui a gardé tout son charme. La maison est très agréable, décorée avec goût et très bien équipée. Elle est très bien adaptée pour deux couples. (plus grande que laisse penser les photos de l'annonce). Elle bénéficie en plus d'un patio situé à l'arrière de la maison, à l'abri des regards. Nous recommandons vivement cette maison ainsi que son hôte, Richard, qui veille à ce que tout se passe bien. L'agent, Kate, qui vous accueille sur place est très aimable et serviable. Et sans aucun doute, si nous avons l'opportunité de revenir en Algarve, notre choix se portera sur Tavira et principalement sur cette maison."
