This is our 2nd stay in this apartment, once again it exceeded expectations. If we were to stay in Olhao again, this apartment would be our first choice for accommodation. There is everything you could possibly need for a self catering holiday, beach towels, parasols, deck chairs, barbecue, washer dryer, full kitchen, cool boxes, comfortable balcony furniture to watch the stunning sunsets and a rooftop pool that we had mainly to ourselves during our two week stay.
The location is just perfect, not in the centre of town, but an easy stroll to get there, supermarkets are nearby, we used Lidl approx. 10-15 min walk, but there are other supermarkets in town, for bread we used a little local shop, non of the amenities were out of our way, if we needed supplies.
We visited the beaches at Farol, Calatra and Armona, all just an easy ferry ride away. Armona is the nearest approx. 15mins on ferry. We used the local ferry at the very end of the harbour, only a few euros to get to the beaches not expensive at all, cant remember exactly how much.
Took the train to Tavira - again very easy to get there , line 2 going out to Tavira , line 1 returning to Olhao they were efficient and cheap. We Tavira was lovely, but much more touristy than Olhao.
Thankyou Jorge for allowing us to stay in your wonderful apartment, the home comforts helped to make our holiday even more special, hope to be back in the future.

“A great apartment”
Reviewed June 7, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

A return visitor to Olhao and this apartment. It has everything you need and is furnished to a really high standard. Very accommodating around check-in and check-out times.

Great balcony which gets the sun in the afternoons, a 10 minute stroll down to the markets. More grilled fish than you could ever eat.

A great base to explore a great town.

“Beautiful apartment, good location, nice town”
Reviewed July 5, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Really well kitted out apartment in a good location 10 mins walk to waterfront markets, city centre and supermarkets. Good views from the balcony over the Ria Formosa and equipped with everything you could possible need. Much bigger than it appears in the photos and furnished to a really high standard for a holiday rental. Smooth check in and check out. Big balcony which gets the sun in the afternoon and evening. Will definitely be booking again.

This is a return visit as we stayed here last year and enjoyed ourselves so much we just had to return for another stay in this very comfortable apartment. Jorge's father met us at the apartment with a gift of red and white wine plus a bottle of water which was much appreciated. The apartment is just a few minutes walk from the Marina where you can get a ferry to the islands which are beautiful. Another plus to staying here is the fish market and the fresh produce market adjacent, this can be reached in a few minutes stroll along the Marina. If you want a totally relaxing holiday with excellent accommodation then you must stay here. I am returning in September with my sister for a week, can't wait.

“Excellent apartment”
Reviewed May 28, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

The apartment is well equipped,clean and in a good location.
We stayed here as our summer break and was not disappointed as it was exactly what we were looking for.
We were far enough out for it to be quiet and close enough to walk into the center of Olhao.
We had plans of staying in and eating at least 5 days of our holiday but the restaurants in Olhao were so cheap we dined out most nights.
The views from the rooftop pool were amazing and the pool area is a suntrap.
The only negative was no WIFI in the apartment but most of the cafes and restaurants had WIFI so we just used theirs.

A heads up about Olhao - It is very Portuguese so brush up on some every day words and you will be OK and do not take pounds sterling with you as there is nowhere to change money . We ended up going to Faro to get our Euros.
All in all an excellent apartment in an excellent town.
