Four simple holiday apartments are set in a traditional house in the old quarter of a sleepy fishing village. Anne has furnished them with much creativity and makes you very welcome.Although the apartments have their own patios it’s sociable here, with an internal courtyard sporting a barbecue and a bar, and two roof terraces for morning coffee or sundowners.Walk down early in the morning to buy fresh fish from the previous night’s catch – octopus is the specialty here – or sample them in the excellent family-run restaurants a short walk away. Take the ferry to sandy Atlantic beaches that go on for miles – you or can walk there in two miles if you’re feeling energetic. The resort town of Tavira is easily accessible, either by a short drive, a bus trip, walking or cycling on a dedicated path. Here you’ll find supermarkets, more restaurants, a medieval castle and a church.
