We spent one week here in Sept and enjoyed it very much. The room is bright and spacious with a lovely, sunny outside terrace. The small en-suite toilet/shower room is all new and everything was beautifully clean. The air-con was a godsend as it was particularly hot when we where there and unlike so many units you come across this one was very quiet, unobtrusive and efficient. As for location, if you want to be central to the town you cannot beat it. The bridges across the river, shops, restaurants and the ferry stop for Ilha de Tavira (and its beautiful beaches) are only 5 minutes walk away. A mini supermarket for basic supplies is even nearer! Despite its central location we were both pleasantly suprised how quiet the Alegria was. Our hosts, Rui and Maria, could not have been more helpful and and nothing seemed too much trouble for them. A highlight was a lovely breakfast being brought up to the terrace at a time to suit us.

How helpful were the directions to the property? How easy was key pickup/access to the property?

The room was great and very clean! There was a terrace and facilities for a great BBQ . The hosts are very helpful and friendly and keen to tell us about Tavira, places to go, etc. the location is very central and easy to find. Very positive experience and will stay again if we ever come back to Tavira.

We spent 10 nights and so speak from experience. It was a great stay and the owners are very helpful and, importantly, fun! At the time of booking we considered a number of hotels and are glad we did not go for that option. You get a very personal and real experience here. The location is also excellent.

“Wonderful”

We were blown away by the hospitality and charm of this B & B.

Situated centrally in the beautiful historic town of Tavira, Downtown Allegria was the perfect location from which to explore the town on foot. Easy and cheap meter parking was available outside the B & B, while free parking was a few minutes walk away. An almost overwhelming selection of Local Restaurants and bars are within a few minutes stroll of the B & B,.

The newly refurbished / built roof top room was finished to a high standard and charmingly decorated with thoughtful accessories. A local map and guide book, kettle, glasses, fridge with honesty mini bar, TV, air con and free wi fi. The en suite shower room was beautifully appointed and offered fresh amenities - just like a 5* hotel. Our breakfast was delivered to our roof top terrace from where we had amazing views while enjoying fresh squeezed orange juice, fresh breads, cheese, ham and conserves with a huge pot of tea (or coffee) - Perfect start to the day!

Rui and Maria were the most hospitable of hosts and were a great help in advising us on alternative routes around Portugal, as well as giving excellent advice and help in every aspect of our holiday, we enjoyed it so much we extended our stay for an extra night.

Downtown Allegria was our first stop in a 2 week vacation, and it was a wonderful introduction to Portugal that we shall never forget and truly hope that we shall one day return and stay even longer.

The apartment was really modern, complete with rooftop terrace which had the sun all day. Breakfast was served on the terrace each morning at a time suited to ourselves. Nothing was too much hassle for the hosts who invited us to join them for a drink. We will definitely be looking to return in the near future.
