One of the loveliest houses in one of the Algarve's loveliest towns.
Tavira is probably the Algarve’s prettiest city. It has somehow managed to beat off the hordes of tourism and keep its old market town soul. The river Gilão still flows serenely, the fishermen continue to ply their trade and life seems to move more slowly. Those lucky enough to find a special place in the centre can take it all in. A place like the Casa Beleza do Sul, in fact. This jewel of an accommodation has just three accommodation options but all are wonderfully attractive and provide a sense of space and light as well as a mix between the genuine and modern. For example:
Duplex - the fascinating: fully renovated as all open space on two levels with a spacious and cosy kitchenette/dining area. It comes with an ample room overlooking a pine staircase and also includes a spacious bedroom from which you can see the roofs of the house surrounded by a blue sky. The walls of the bathroom are covered with pink “tadelakt” (lime render from Marrakech) giving a Mediterranean and relaxing feel.
Mosaic Suite - the authentic: featuring the original floor tiles, wooden ceilings and doors, this renovated one bedroom apartment has a cosy living room, a well equipped kitchen and a fully renovated bathroom with white “tadelakt” - a Moroccan precious lime render.
Blue Suite- the romantic: a south facing Suite with an authentic and ample living room which goes back to the 19th century. As the name implies, the walls are painted in hues of blue whilst the whole space has been fully renovated whilst keeping the wonderful old wooden floor and ceiling. The bedroom serves up an impressive pyramid shape wooden and cane ceiling, called in Tavira o “tesouro” roof. The suite has a little private kitchenette.
All three suites fit in perfectly with the essence of Tavira and its slow rhythm of life. And with the great beach of Tavira island an exotic boat ride away, beach lovers have a further reason to enjoy the Casa Beleza do Sul.
Casa Beleza do Sul was a great find, and we enjoyed it even more than expected. The studio room was very nice and clean with plenty of space to relax. It was a bit too cold to take advantage of the rooftop deck but it was also very nice. If we visit Tavira again in the future, this will definitely be our first choice for accommodation.

The location of the venue was ideal for our sightseeing trip around Tavira. The owner Paola was very helpful during the 4 days we stayed in her home. The roof top terrace was exceptionally lovely especially at night. In all a rememberable stay in.a beautiful old house.

Casa Beleza Du Sol is an extraordinary find - an authentic Portuguese guest house with private apartments, all wonderfully equipped with everything you might need for a longer stay. We only managed one night, but it was a real delight - particularly the breakfast, delivered to the door in baskets so big, it was hard for one person to carry them. Paola, the owner, and her staff were very welcoming and made us feel as if we were house guests in their own home.
the apartments are centrally situated, right on the river in the old town. I love this place and long to return for a longer stay

This beautiful 19th century property was lovingly restored by Paola. The property has many soulful and charming details. From the complimentary teas, hand soaps, and bedding. The roof top offers a relaxing place to dine or take in the Algarve sun from its daybeds. We highly recommend this gem and would love to return soon.
LOVELY and ROMANTIC PLACE

The room and the hotel is very charming. Our favourite place in the two weeks in Portugal. The hostess was very sweet and helpful. The location is terrific. Very close to the river and some fine restaurants. The terrace upstairs deserves some time to be spent on with a glass of wine. Thank you.

La casa hace honor al nombre. Es preciosa, además de cómoda y acogedora. La habitación contaba con todos los detalles para hacerte sentir como en casa y las dos terrazas, perfectas para dejar pasar el tiempo con una taza de café o una copa de vino en la mano. Además nos facilitaron todo tipo de información sobre las playas, restaurantes, rutas por la ciudad... Sólo tuvimos que preocuparnos de disfrutar de la estancia. ¿Maravillosa!
