Faro Airport - 35 Kilometres, approximately 30 minutes.
Within 4kms Tavira offers a great range of shops and supermarkets (Pingo Doce, Lidle), bars/restaurants abound many specialising in seafood. The beautiful river Gilão runs through the centre of town and on those warm summer nights public entertainment can be found in the park by the river.
The climate is mild and mellow and so is the character of the land and its people. Spring, with its profusion of wildflowers, comes very early. Summers are long; winters are short. The air is free of pollution and light breezes prevent even the hottest midsummer days from becoming oppressive. The Algarvian lifestyle is easy-going, fatalistic and unfettered by concern for time.
The Algarve's healthy climate, pure air are nicely complemented by wholesome, locally-caught and home-grown food.
In particular, there is a wonderfully wide range of seafood, including all sorts of clams, prawns and lobster, and delicious fresh fish such as halibat, swordfish, tuna, sea bass and sea bream.
Eating out in the restaurants of Santa Luzia is all the more delightful because Portuguese wines are so good and so reasonably priced.
We have a number of excellent markets nearby (a detailed list will be in the apartment) where you can pick up some real bargains.
There is an interesting car-boot near the beach of Fuzeta where you will find some unusual items. Ayamonte, 20 mins (the Spanish border) town has a similar market every Saturday.
Tourist resort towns with entertainment, bars, restaurants and casinos only a 10 - 40 minute drive away (depending which town you would like to visit).
Finally, For those of you who do not want to just stay on the beach and want to see more of the original Algarve then a circular drive through Moncarapacho, Estói, Olhão and Tavira is well worth doing, with the A22 link this makes a good half day visit.
