It is not necessary to hire a car to enjoy a holiday in Tavira as all facilities are within easy walking distance of the apartment.
The town is served by two railway stations for trains to Faro or Vila Real de San Antonio. Porta Nova is approximately one third of a mile from the apartment, and Tavira Town is approximately one mile from the apartment. The bus station is located approximately half a mile from the apartment with buses serving Faro and most major towns in the Algarve, and Seville.
Local taxis are readily available and are generally more reasonably priced than in the UK.
Faro Airport is roughly thirty five minutes away and provides services to most of continental Europe including a daily Ryanair service to Porto in northern Portugal giving the opportunity to spend a short break in this interesting and attractive Portuguese city.
