“Ticks all our boxes”
Reviewed June 16, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This is a really lovely countryside retreat to take a relaxing break. Avocado Apartment is extremely well equipped, well maintained, spick and span, with many extra touches, such as pot pourri and scented vapourisers, which add to the general comfort and ambiance. The whole apartment is very comfortable and beautifully furnished.
The pool/garden area is a delight with plenty of interesting plants, including various fruit trees which thrive very well. It has all day sun with lots of shady areas for those who prefer.
The owners are on hand at all times, very helpful and friendly, and go out of their way to accommodate guests' needs. The welcome pack on arrival is a real plus, especially when there is a late arrival time.
Casa dos Sonhos is about a 10 minute car ride from Moncarapacho, where there are several good restaurants and snack bars to suit most tastes, supermarkets, banks, chemist, health shop, daily market, health centre, dentist, all that the most discerning holidaymaker could possibly need. Olhao is also within easy reach, and has many restaurants and shops, plus a daily fish and vegetable market which should not be missed. The wide variety of fish iespecially is a sight to see. There is also a ferry boat service to the nearby islands, where there are beautiful beaches to laze on or to swim., and restaurants where you can enjoy local fish dishes.
We shall hope to return very soon.

Amazing again!!

We never ever go to the same place twice......we made an exception for here. Best home from home ever.
We booked all three apartments as we travelled with family and it was just perfect. You had all the privacy of a villa but with the benefit of having separate living space. Please see our review from year before. We love this place. This time we travelled with 3 children and a baby and George and Olive looked after us so well. Do not hesitate in booking x

“Mother knows best!”
Reviewed October 10, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Yes she does - in her 80's and loved this place. Although she uses a walking stick she was very comfortable walking around and admiring the well maintained attractive garden. She was cheeky enough to pick oranges, lemons, apples and advocados which she so enjoyed. Mother commented that she now fully understands why her 13 year old grandson and 14 year old granddaughter were so excited when they returned from this same rental back in August. They too picked oranges and grapes every morning for breakfast before during and after their volleyball game in the pool! This place is an ideal location for the N125 which will take you to all the attractions or there is a bus stop just up the road. The beaches, restaurant and most of all George and Olive are outstanding. Yes - mother knows best and wants to return next year.

“Just what you would hope to find”
Reviewed September 14, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This is a wonderful apartment. Clean, beautifully presented with many thoughtful touches that make your stay perfect. Great little swimming pool, a bit chilly in September, but surrounded by chairs and tables, a lovely barbeque area and orange and avocado trees. Just beautiful. George and Olive are excellent hosts who go out of their way to be helpful, suggesting places to eat (which are excellent value and serve beautiful food) and sights to see. Casa Dos Sonhos is conveniently situated for beaches and interesting towns, and is a 20 minute drive from Faro airport. Olhao has all the supermarkets etc that you need and a lovely fishing port plus the opportunity to take a boat trip around the Ria Formosa nature reserve and, as we did, visit the nearest thing to a desert island beach that you'll find so close to the shore!
In all, a great place for a holiday and highly recommended.

We have spent 3 weeks at the casa Avocado. This was a perfect place matching our objective of visiting the algarve coast. Nice apartment, very nice garden and patio with swimming pool. Very friendly and helpful owners: Olivia and Georges. On top the weather was perfect... what else to ask for ?

“The best home from home apartment EVER!!!”
Reviewed August 28, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

I am so delighted that we got the opportunity to stay at these apartments. The location is amazing for a range of beaches and restaurants although a car is a must. The hosts are fantastic with a wealth of information to help make your holiday perfect. The apartment has everything you possible need and most importantly comfortable beds. George and Olive had a welcome back for us and we arrived to fresh croissants for our breakfast. We are well travelled and are a family with three children and I can't recommend these apartments highly enough, do not hesitate to book.
