More from our stay at Camping Ria Formosa located just outside Cabanas de Tavira.
We stayed here for 32 nights during October/November 2014.
This is one of 4 blog posts from our stay here which gave us some time to consider various ways of living this winter escape to the sun lifestyle.
The 4 blogs are:
1. A brief view of Camping Ria Formosa and Static options
2. A brief view of Solo MoHo’s
3. A brief view of Moho+Toad – Caravan/Tow Vehicle
4. A brief view of Bricks & Mortar options
These are pictures of the area around camping Ria Formosa only, a golf course exits a few hundred yards away, included here against the backdrop of Camping Ria Formosa options as they are a nearby solution to being in this area – there are masses of other opportunities for a bricks and mortar solution to wintering in Portugal/Spain and everywhere we’ve been ‘Se vende’ signs abound. Best advice we had was to approach the local banks directly for the properties they are attempting to divest themselves of. How long will that last for though?
Typical ‘in-development’ pathway finishes
A nearby apartment block
The local golf course – one of five in the Tavira area – one of one that we were asked to leave due to having dogs!
The pond hedging the green and the reason that we were asked to leave!
Steps around the local church
The underpass and walkway to towards shopping – there is a road above this on the right and another road above this underpass to the left that leads to Camping Ria Formosa – don’t use this in your MoHo unless owning a convertible MoHo is high on your list!
The two decently surfaced road merge ahead of the underpass road and new arrivals will need to make a sharp left into the road leading to Camping Ria Formosa – there’s plenty of space to do this
On the right side of the top of the underpass road is a new development – including areas not yet developed (ideal for dog walkies!)
Shops and sales office at the centre of this development
A Portiguese attempt to challenge the Minack Theatre? Buskers steer clear – the entire development had about 3 occupants that we saw and there are 100+ apartments
The obligatory pool at this development
And contact details for anyone keen to own a slice of the Cabanas pie – haven’t checked the website out but apartments on Murcia golf resorts start at around €60K – while stock lasts (that’ll be a while then?)
