Details of the Villa

Boa Vista is a large detached 4-bed, 3-bath, partially air-conditioned villa, 6 to 8 mins walk from the Roman bridge (the centre point of old Tavira); a car is not essential. A wrap-around marble-tiled terrace at ground floor and a roof terrace at first floor offer panoramic views of the hills, the river and the Roman Bridge, the Moorish Castle, and over the town and out to sea. Up to eight adult guests can comfortably be accommodated and a cot and/or high-chair are available.
On arrival, you are met by an English couple who introduce you to the facilities. They live locally and are on hand should any minor emergencies occur. They also provide a Welcome Basket including tea, coffee, milk, sugar, cheese, cold meats, bread, water, wine, beer, soft drinks, etc – maybe not enough for a four course meal but enough that you don't have to rush to the supermarket.
