“Perfect Stay”
Reviewed 21 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The apartment had everything you would ever needed it was spacious for two. It was in a good location within walking distance of the fantastic restaurants in Olhao, the ferry to the islands and opposite the nature reserve. The supermarket is just up the road and Old Faro and Tavira are in easy reach.
Sophie and Willem are a telephone call away if you need them but they provide plenty of local information in the flat.

“Fantastic apartment”
Reviewed 1 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The apartment had everything you could want or need.sophie and Willem were very good hosts and very helpful.the downside was that we found the road which ran past the apartment was busy and noisy overall we found the area not to our liking but that is just a personal opinion.

“Only a gold star will do for this rental property.”

How lovely to stay in such a special place which has been decorated so thoughtfully by Sophie and Wim. Nothing was too much trouble and I've never stayed in such a well equipped apartment which is maintained to an excellent standard. The apartment view was wonderful and we didn't tire of watching the flocks of flamingos wading in the salt pans. I would definitely recommend this experience to a couple who want to get away from it all.

“Brilliant apartment in a great location”
Reviewed 5 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We have stayed at this apartment three times and love staying here. It is beautifully decorated and furnished and very well maintained. Although it is a one bedroom apartment, it is very spacious. There are lots of extra touches, such as towelling robes, new toothbrushes, toothpaste, tea, coffee, high quality wifi, as well as all the items you'd expect. Sophie and Willem are always there to greet us and to offer help and advice at any time about restaurants, markets, transport, etc. The view from the balcony is breathtaking, over the estuary, with flamingos and other birds flying in.
There is a swimming pool with sunbathing terraces on the roof, which is never very busy - a great place to unwind with a book. If you prefer beaches, they are accessible via a ferry.
The apartment is within easy reach of lots of bars and restaurants, about 10 minutes walk. We particularly like Dokas Club, behind the market on the waterfront - good quality wine at great prices and a wonderful view.
There are supermarkets nearby too, small ones in Olhao itself, and Continente and a Lidl 10 minutes walk away.
We're hoping to return again next year and would strongly recommend this apartment.

Sophie & Wim go the extra mile for their guests, everything you could want in the apartment and more, dressing gowns and toiletries and much more. They give you a great welcome in person and show you how everything works plus any information you need.
Great location with plenty of bars and restaurants also good daily markets and a brilliant Saturday outdoor market with great atmosphere.
Fantastic beaches via the ferry

Sophie and Wim are excellent hosts and will make sure your every need is catered for if they can. They organised a taxi to and from the airport had tea prepared on our arrival and couldn't be nicer to deal with. Their hostessing skills are second to none.
The apartment is decorated to the highest standard in Moroccan style, it's full of really nice pieces of art,the decoration is of very high quality including the mattress which was so comfortable. It is very well stocked with all sorts of spices, tea, coffee, cooking oils, toothbrushes , toothpaste, even sun cream. It is the best stocked apartment we have ever stayed in.
We love Olhao and this apartment is perfect as it's only a short walk to restaurants, ferry to take you to the beautiful islands and shops. The Real Marina Hotel is very close if one fancied a bit of pampering in the spa. There is also the biggest fish market close by where the choice is endless and very reasonable.
If you take the trouble to find the best restaurants on trip advisor you will be delighted with the brilliant value and quality of the food. They are off the Main Street but worth the walk.
Taking the ferries to the islands is really enjoyable and very cheap. If you take the ferry from the main pier. The islands are so fabulous , hardly anyone on the beaches where you can walk for miles. Overall a fabulous trip and a fabulous apartment.
