Regardless of the rural road that leads to the B&B, Quinta Arruba is a nice and quiet place and it's worth choosing.The position is great:few minutes for reaching Tavira by car and 4-5 Km far from Praia do Barril beach.
The villa and its amazing pool arises in a wide carob orchard.
We got a twin room with tiny bathroom. Breakfast in the garden patio with morning fresh summer breeze.
John is the host, who lives upstairs with his wife:rely on his advices/tips for restaurants and more. We did.Thank you John!

If you want to go to Tavira and stay in a beautiful quiet place, then this is where you have to go to. Quinta Arruba has an amazing view, it's really quiet and has a lovely pool with terrace to relax. Nice rooms with a great view, everything was clean and enough space for storage. We rent a MBT to go to town but maybe it's best to come by car. It is a 8 minute trip down town but the way back is a little bit steep.

We stayed with John and Jane last year and had a brilliant time. The breakfast was really good and the room was lovely. John and Jane were really helpful and gave us some really good tips on where to go locally. It's a great location, peaceful yet lots to do as well. Highly recommended.

We had a lovely stay at Quinta Arruba. The owners are helpful and hospitable and made a great, fresh breakfast every morning.

The swimming pool is lovely and the rooms are perfect (apart from the very creaky bed!).

We had a car which I think is a must as the town is a good ten minute drive away.

Tavira is a lovely town with nice fish restaurants and lovely beaches a short drive away.

We would absolutely stay here again and would recommend it highly.
