We stayed at The Real Marina Residence early March 2015 the apartments are out of this world and Olhao has kept its traditional charms that's why we are returning with our family in July. Explore the small back streets for small family run restaurants excellent seafood and take the local ferry to visit the islands.Can't wait to return

This time, we had the immediate family with us. We rented three apartments – two one-bedroom and one two bedroom units. It was very helpful to be assigned... More
