Tavira Garden, in Tavira town, is widely regarded as the finest family-friendly apartment rental complex in the Eastern Algarve. I offer four 2-bed comprehensively equipped apts with aircon and WiFi internet. The complex includes two pools (each with adjacent kids pool), tennis, gym, bar/bistro, etc. Tavira old town is a 15 minute walk or a €4,00 taxi. Faro airport is 35km, taxi €50,00.
Tavira Garden is an apartment complex set in mature, almost sub-tropical, gardens. The larger pool (20m x 10m) is flanked by a pool bar and is a magnet for young and old alike. The smaller pool is favoured young children. Free communal WiFi internet is available at Reception, in the Bar/Bistro and at the main pool. A team of gardeners and nightly irrigation keeps the gardens in great shape -- there are ancient olive trees, carob trees, palm trees and an astonishing variety of shrubs and flowers, The complex is largely pedestrianised and there is no through traffic. Loungers and umbrellas are provided at both pool areas or you can stretch out on the grass anywhere in the gardens in the shade of one of the old trees.
An on-site gym offers sauna, torture machines, massage, yoga, etc. Tennis and boules courts are also available.
A large supermarket 300m away offers a comprehensive selection of fresh and packaged foodstuffs and there is a large mall (with cinemas, food court, boutiques, etc) at 800m.
The old town is a 10 to 15 minute walk or a Euro 4,00 taxi ride.
Nearby Ilha da Tavira offers 12km of some of the best white strands of Algarve and the warmest waters.
An on-site tour office offers car and bicycle hire, tours, etc. As in most of the Algarve, English is the business language of both Tavira Garden and Tavira town.
I have four apartments in Tavira Garden. Each has 2-bedrooms (1 x double, 1 x twin plus sofa-bed) and is air-conditioned. Sat TV is provided. A fast, unlimited WiFi router can be provided in the apartment as an optional extra. The kitchen is comprehensively equipped and includes washing machine and drying frame.
Zugang für Gäste
Guests have access to all the facilities of the complex but there are charges for the gym, for the tennis court and for the on-site launderette (but all PortuGolf apartments come with a washing machine).
The Reception office offers advice and assistance with any queries or concerns you may have. The communal WiFi is free to all guests (and PortuGolf apartments offer an in-apartment 'HotSpot' as an option).
Interaktion mit Gästen
The only obligatory interaction with guests is Meet&Greet on arrival and, for longer stays, the mid-stay cleaning plus change of linen and towels.
The apartment manager is at the other end of the phone 24/7 should any problems arise -- and the Reception office is also happy to assist.
Other than that, you are left entirely uninterrupted to relax and enjoy your vacation.
Born in Ireland, I studied engineering in UCD and worked with a variety of international companies. I speak English, French, German and some Portufuese. In 2003 I took early retirement and now spend the winter in Portugal. I also spend much of my time in Uganda as a volunteer on primary health care construction projects. I have several rental properties in the Algarve which helps to augment my pension.
