“the apartment was amazing and the views first were probably the best in the apartment blocks”
Reviewed 2 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

wear flat shoes in Olhao. If you dont have a hire car, try to do a big shop the day you arrive, to save on the shopping in the heat and carrying heavy bags

“Excellent apartment. Keep it a secret!”
Reviewed 29 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

The apartment is as described and as per the pictures (which is not always the case). The location is fabulous. It is the end block and therefore has sun on the balcony all the way through to sunset. The apartment blocks behind this one do not. The apartment is large and is nicely equipped. The A/C we tended to not use but it works well. The building is fairly new and so all of the facilities are modern and functional. There are even sun umbrellas you can use on the beach along with buckets and spades etc.

The area is fabulous. There are many local restaurants within a few minutes walk. These got busy in the evenings, so it's worth considering making reservations once you know which ones you want to visit. Basically, they are all pretty good, but some are a little more upmarket and others just cafe style restaurants that the locals use. Prices are quite low compared with other areas of Algarve.
There are 3 main islands a very short and cheap ferry ride away. They are all very quiet and great for a day at the beach. We also did a day trip to Lisbon using the train from Faro, which takes about 3 hours. This was an interesting day, but I wish I could have gone out of peak season as there were queues for most of the buildings we wanted to visit.
John and Helen are both very helpful and if you need any advice on trips etc, they will make themselves available to answer your queries.

I strongly recommend this apartment and the location and the price.

Liked best: The town is not yet inundated with tourists and has a real Portugese feel about it.
Liked least: The very cold atlantic ocean.

“Great apartment!”
Reviewed 10 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Just returned from the apartment and it was fantastic. Spotlessly clean, well equipped, modern, secure. Fantastic location, great views and Olhao is absolutely gorgeous. The port is beautiful and the beaches are gorgeous. We had a great time and the apartment and John and Helen only added to the ease and enjoyment of our holiday.

We will be back!

Fabulous apartment except for the shower in the main bathroom - should have a screen. Good location as long as you have a car. Only one very small frying pan....
