There are 4 good golf course nearby where you can play leisurely without queues. There are also 2 more courses nearby in Spain. We have played them all and they are all different and interesting with excellent views.
Horse riding is available locally at a riding cantinha. There are many beautiful walks in the area including hill walking. There is also nearby a waterfall with a natural azure blue plunge pool – ideal for a picnic and swim. The Ria Formosa is nearby which is world renowned for bird watching and walking.
Both Luz de Tavira and Tavira have many local Fiestas throughout the summer where you can taste the local wine and beer and dance the night away – a good way to join in and meet people.
Five minutes from our house is a good local family run restaurant which is popular with both locals and visitors. Excellent seafood and meat dishes are served in down to earth surroundings with prices to match.
This is a picturesque and cultural town with a Roman bridge over the River Gilao. There are many cafes and restaurants where you can eat very reasonably. There is a cinema in Tavira showing up to date English speaking films, there is also a Multiplex in Faro.
The nearest beach is Barril beach reached by a short walk across the Ria Formosa – alternatively you can use the ‘Thomas the Tank train’ – a typical Portuguese experience. There are also the beaches at Ilha de Tavira which can be reached by a short ferry hop. All the local beaches are beautiful and unspoilt and south facing towards Africa, with the warmest waters in Portugal. There are local bars and restaurants and with 18 kms of golden sand there is always plenty of space.
The property is 200 yards from the local bus route to Tavira or Faro and there is a good train service from the village along the whole of the Algarve coastline.
