Lonely Planet review
If this boutique number were an American movie icon, she'd be Zsa Zsa Gabor. It is tastefully 'campish' and the unique rooms beautifully incorporate the mansion's original features. Each room is named after a flower, and the design reflects this in colour and quirky touches. Oh, and there's even a tiny Roman-style dipping pool and a fabulous roof terrace.
Our independent authors have visited Tavira House and selected this as one of our recommended accommodation in Tavira.
