Stayed at Calcada in Sept. while attending a family wedding. Andy arranged transfer from airport. Andy and Daniel looked after us very well. Accommodation was amazing, great location and well maintained. Breakfast served every morning on the rooftop balcony. Food was excellent in terms of quality, quantity and service. Other members of the family also stayed here and were similarly... More

Yes, peerless is the only way to describe this amazing establishment. What Andy has created here needs to be experienced to be believed. The level of service and attention to detail is incredible.

Our bedroom was extremely clean, cosy and comfortable. The rooftop is awesome and offers a great view over Tavira. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer... More

Although we have visited Tavira several times previously, we were unaware of this little gem tucked away up a slight hill in a side street not far from the town.

This accommodation was the best we experienced during our 4 week trip of Portugal. The Guesthouse is well located and only a 3 min walk (75m) from the Bus Station, so don't bother to catch the train.

This is a wonderful boutique hotel in the older renovated part of Tavira, a beautiful town in eastern Algarve. Everything is correct here. Location, successful architectural redesign as a small hotel, quality of the room, great bed, delicious breakfast. We will return.

Most importantly, The Calcada Guest House is clean and well maintained, with air conditioning that is very effective and bug screens at the windows. Breakfast is excellent, served on the terrace which is a great way to start the day. All the staff are excellent, and the whole place is very comfortable. I cannot rate this B&B too highly. They...
