“Clean, spacious and well equipped flat in ideal location with very helpful owners.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We had a great time in this lovely, modern flat which is very well situated for seeing the town of Olhao on foot and the area around by train , bus or the ferries to thebeautiful unspoilt beaches on the islands. There is no need to hire a car. You can also use the train to get to Tavira, and Faro and the Spanish border town of Villa Real. We made good use of the huge terraces for relaxing on the loungers or for a glass or two of the lovely wines and beers, where we also eat breakfast.

We found there are many restaurants in Olhao in walking distance which provide excellent food, especially seafood at very reasonable prices, and we really enjoyed the slow pace of life and wandering round Olhao stopping for the odd beer or coffee and cakes. It gave us a real flavour of Portuguese life.

The owners met us on arrival at the flat, were very helpful and provided us with lots of local knowledge.

“Excellent central apartment”

Great central apartment. Very spacious for 2/3 people, very well equipped with a large wrap around terrace for sunbathing and cooking on the BBQ. Although in the centre of town the apartment block itself was very quiet. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting an Olhao town centre stay.
