The beautiful village of Santo Estêvão is only 1,5Km away and there you can find two small supermarkets very well stocked, Post Office with free internet access, Pharmacy (In the main square of Santo Estevão, near the Church), ATM, Two coffees, one with restaurant "O Forno" (closed on Wednesdays), Homemade food of very good quality, also take away;
There is also a small cafe / restaurant «Os Arcos» (on the road from Santo Estevão to Luz de Tavira, passing the cemetery right side of the road) – Very simple home cooking, little choice .... take away (but need to command first)

Santa Luzia is s small fishing village that stopped in time but continue to impress when it comes to typical gastronomy and tradition...Several good restaurants ; try « Capelo » for fish or « Casa do Polvo » for octopus, the local specialty.

Tavira is a really attractive town with some lovely, quite grand, buildings reflecting it's wealthy past particularly around the Praça da República area and then typical rows of Portuguese 'town' houses with tiled fronts along narrow cobbled streets; shops to browse in; pretty gardens and squares to sit in and, of course, plenty of restaurants and cafes for refreshments!
