Simply wonderful!

The design of this apartment is really clever and was perfect for me and my two teenage sons. The kitchen has a wonderful design feel to it and the little balcony LOVELY to sit out on during the day and the evening. I really enjoyed the 'green-ness' of the surroundings and lower garden seating space, which made it feel like an escape from the hot, busy streets. The main bedroom is a cosy space whereas the room with the bunk beds in felt a bit on the functional side (there was an alot of random clutter behind the door). Emma was very welcoming but could have explained a few more things about the apartment on our arrival (we didn't know there was a beach umbrella or spare chairs available and bought them!!) . The space could do with a standing fan in addition to the several floor ones because it does get hot. Would HIGHLY RECOMMEND as a stylish, spacious , well located space to hang out in fantastic Tavira.

We loved our stay at the Bishop's house on one of Tavira's picturesque squares. Herman met us on the short walk from the station, which made us feel welcome (as did the bottle of wine in the fridge, and some plums from the garden). The flat is charming and comfortable, with lots of authentic features and colour. We appreciated the bikes (plenty of scope in and around Tavira for easy cycling) and Herman's help with adjusting saddles etc. A great place for a sweet, slow holiday, with everything you need within easy reach.

Everything about this flat was wonderful. The highlights were the secluded and shady garden, the provision of cycles and well equipped kitchen. Tavira had enough interest for a weeks holiday without having to use a car. We enjoyed the bird watching, cycle routes and easy access to the restuarants and local food market. It was very quiet for us.

A charming apartment that is both old and modern. We loved the beautiful, original tile floors, the old photos of Tavira, the bright and open kitchen/sitting room and the amazing, secluded terrace and garden. The location was ideal in a quiet corner of central Tavira. Communication with Emma was nice and efficient.

Four of us stayed here (2 adults and 2 kids - aged 6 and 4). It was a great place to stay and very authentic. The location is super and in the middle of a beautiful square just off the main centre of Tavira. Everything is within walking distance and shops/markets/restaurants are all close by. The house is very nicely designed and our hosts were very helpful. I would recommend this as a location for people who want a base to explore all that Tavira has to offer.
