Tavira, Pearl Of The Algarve

From: £975.00

The scent of orange groves and pine trees€companies you as you ramble along ancient paths fringed with abundant wild flowers, to a viewpoint where you can rest and drink in the scenery and the silence. Tavira straddles the Rio Gilo as it meets the Atlantic Ocean and flows into the shallows of the offshore Ria Formosa Natural Park. With its ruined castle and€tive fishing harbour, Tavira is a labyrinth of cobbled streets, shady plazas and is the most attractive of the Algarves coastal towns. Our walks take us to Tavira Island in the Natural Park, taking in one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, and to pretty coastal villages such as Santa Luiza, Cabanas and Cacela Velha. Inland we wind our way between hills and valleys to the low peak of Zimbral, with some rewarding views. Ancient trails take us past farms, through an intricate patchwork of orange groves, olive and carob orchards. Sometimes we walk beside rivers; other times amongst the pines and cork oaks. Through most of our season we are presented with an endless and ever-changing procession of beautiful flowers. Tavira itself is, to say the least, a very charming town. The ancient Ponta Romana spans the Rio Sequa, separating the two sides of the town. Narrow streets lead between whitewashed buildings, many with traditional balconies. At the centre lies the lovely Praa da Republica, bordered by trees, fountains and restaurants. Well enjoy dinners at local restaurants giving the opportunity to sample the wonderful Portuguese cuisine and wines.
