POUSADA de TAVIRA, Tavira village

THE PAST:

Located in the fishing village of Tavira, the Pousada lies within the buildings of the Graça Convent - founded in around 1569, by King Sebastian I, for Augustinian nuns. It opened as a Pousada in 2006.

THE PRESENT:

With its 16th- and 17th-Century Renaissance cloister, baroque-style facade and central staircase, this is an exceptionally beautiful Pousada, with a wonderfully relaxing atmosphere. There is an interesting Museum area, featuring items, and buildings, from the 17th- and 18th-Century era of Arab occupation.

THE PLACE FOR YOU?

An attractive village, steeped in history and famous for its 37 churches, Tavira sits on two hills on either side of the River Gilão, linked by a seven-arched bridge. (Scroll down to end for GETTING THERE details.)

THE PROPERTY IN DETAIL:

EATING & DRINKING
Restaurant Mouraria is open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner – which can be served in the open air. The regional gastronomy was traditionally based on the sea, but is today evolving into a combination of flavours from both the land and the sea. A regional tasting menu is offered every Thursday at lunch. The bar, adjacent to the restaurant, extends service to the cloister and the pool terrace. As well as drinks, it serves 5-o’clock tea, and snacks.

SLEEPING
Of the 36 bedrooms, 16 have balconies. There are 24 twin rooms, one with a mezzanine floor, and seven double rooms, as well as five suites – one with a balcony, one with a gardened private terrace, and one a duplex.
