This place has the best views. LOVED the rooftop patio. It is an issue getting luggage to the room, but once settled, it's fine. There are a lot of steep stairs in this place, which is typical of Europe. Great location. I loved the neighbourhood and the views.

Nice to hear your feedback and it is a pleasure to hear your positive experinace. You are totally right, the place is a Gem and we naturally love it, and true there are 54 steps to the rooms on the third floor, and there is little we can do about this, however, it keeps us in great shape ... It is always fun to here people who enjoyed the experience and for that we are thank full. If any one of the readers of this review wishes to book with us, please call us and let us know if you would prefer a lower floor:0 Cheers from sunny Olhao

the owners were very friendly and offered lots of advise on local eateries and places to see. The rooms were ok. if you have a car, as we did, parking is a problem and we had to park 8 minute walk away.

We stayed there for 3 nights and were completely happy with our beautiful room. It's small but perfectly furnished, very cute place to be. And the roof terrace.. Awesome view! The owner Nisa is very open-minded and attentive and his staff is also very nice. Sharing the kitchen and Wc is no problem, ensures the possibility to get to know other guests. Small bath with shower is part of each room. 100% recommended! :)
