“Look no further for the perfect holiday apartment”
Reviewed 2 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We had a perfectly wonderful time (Despite above normal temperatures) thanks to the ideal position, within easy walking distance of Olhao itself.
Sitting on the balcony watching the flamingos in the nature reserve opposite is the perfect way to start the day and from there you can either explore the town or get a bus/train to Tavira and explore the beaches.
Plenty of restaurants to discover, Bar 62 was one of our favourites, catering for all tastes.
The local market is only 10 minutes walk away for essential supplies, there is a shopping trolley supplied and I recommend you use it as you will end up buying more than you thought you would (Beer and wine).
In summary; Don't overlook this property as it has so much going for it it would be hard to better.

“Amazing!”
Reviewed 6 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Enjoyed a short but fantastic break in Olhao. The apartment was fantastic. The photos really don't show how spacious it is. It would be a great place for a longer stay too as the apartment is so well equipped and very comfortable. We really were sad to leave.
John and Helen were extremely helpful and responsive to any queries. The views are wonderful and the pool an added bonus in the heat, especially as there is no beach as such in Olhao. However....even better than having a beach on the doorstep is the opportunity to catch a ferry for a couple of euros out to the islands laying just off Olhao. We only had time to got to Farol, but they all look stunning. Farol has a fantastic charm of holidays past, with no vehicles and a huddle of houses, cross crossing sandy paths and beautiful sandy beaches. Perfect.
Lastly, not to forget Olhao itself. Low key with great food in friendly little restaurants and some pretty backstreets to explore with gorgeous buildings. Can't wait to go back.

“FANTASTIC.”
Reviewed 28 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Just returned from 9 wonderful days in Olhao. The apartments are top class. So big and roomy and furnished to the last. The kitchen was so well equipped and dishwasher a blessing. Sun on balcony all afternoon and evening. Helen and John met us on our arrival and were so helpful explaining everything to us. It was like home from home. Will be returning.

“Nice Apartment”
Reviewed 5 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

The apartment was very spacious, clean and really well furnished. We were met by John & Helen who explained everything we needed to know. It had all the basics provided which was very much appreciated. The location near the village is good and as it is in the end block still has views and the sunset.

“Absolutely Beautiful”
Reviewed 15 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We loved this apartment, everything about it was perfect for us. I travelled with my partner and three children aged 7, 9, 14 years old. The apartment is very spacious, the single bedroom has a sliding door into the master bedroom which is ideal for anyone travelling with young children.
The views from balcony were fabulous.
The pool is lovely and the Beaches on the nearby Islands are very beautiful.
The service we received was excellent.
Olhao is Perfect if you want a quiet holiday.
