I think if I could choose anywhere to go and live for the next 3-6 months it would be Tavira. We didn't have any expectations heading there after Sao Miguel, and when we got there - what we found was the most adorable, charming little town. It had the best pieces of our trip all mixed together. Tavira had nearby beaches, a town that you could access everything by foot, so many food options and the best part were the 2 men on the bridge who were there from morning until evening playing music. We stayed right in the centre of the historical town and everyday we had to debate where to eat because there were so many options. Patisseries, espressos, crepes, gelatos, seafood. It was all was SO good. The prices were great, people were friendly. I can't say enough of this place. Calgon, take me away!
