Holiday spots don't come much more peaceful than this. Just outside of Tavira, the Eco Hotel Vila Gale Albacora is part of a restored tuna fishing village, set on the riverfront in the Ria Formosa national park. With a unique mix of charming, historic buildings and well-designed, low-rise accommodation, it's no surprise that this hotel has won awards for conservation - it even has its own museum. From the pier, you can take a ferry trip to the beach at Tavira Island, or why not catch the shuttle bus into Tavira for some sightseeing?
