This was our second time to stay in this wonderful guesthouse. So impressed were we with everything about it that we couldn't wait to visit again. We've just come back from an eight night stay and cannot recommend it highly enough. Every comfort is provided, Andy and the staff are so welcoming and friendly and go out of their way...

Calcada guesthouse is a little treasure and I can't recommend it highly enough. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and stylishly decorated with some lovely little touches like a bottle of fresh filtered water in your room each day. The guesthouse is situated in the old town of Tavira, quite close to the Roman Bridge and is within easy walking distance...

We liked Calcada Guesthouse a lot. We had room 3, one of the two rooms on the bottom floor that do not actually have a window with a view. Instead, they have a small patio with table and chairs and sliding doors including screens. At first this seemed a little strange, but we got used to it and indeed found...

Charming, little spot in old Tavira. Andy, the British guy who runs it, is incredibly helpful. He even found us and guided us to the place. Clean, attractive rooms and breakfast on the roof. Would love to go back!

We spent 8 days at the Calcada Guesthouse and nothing was too much trouble for our hosts Andy, Daniel, and Andrea. We were picked up from the airport and delivered back in good time, enjoyed excellent breakfasts with freshly squeezed orange juice, coffee, yoghurt, muesli, cheese, ham, home-made bread, and croissants, and were within walking distance of all the major...

We'd loved our stay at Calcada Guesthouse. A beautiful boutique guesthouse/hotel in Tavira (probably one of the best guesthouses we've stayed in). The guesthouse has a great location (just a few meters from the center of Tavira, but really quiet), stylish spotless rooms, a comfy bed and a delicious breakfast (served on the roof terrace). And the service was also...

Stayed at Calcada in Sept. while attending a family wedding. Andy arranged transfer from airport. Andy and Daniel looked after us very well. Accommodation was amazing, great location and well maintained. Breakfast served every morning on the rooftop balcony. Food was excellent in terms of quality, quantity and service. Other members of the family also stayed here and were similarly...
