  • A good place to stay in Olhao - convenient for touring the Algarve
    4 of 5

    February 14 – March 13, 2019 The house is conveniently located, walking distance from the rail station, bus depot, supermarkets, restaurants and the waterfront. It seems to be a recent rebuild using high end materials and is completely equipped with the latest appliances. The owner kindly left the appliance instruction manuals (mostly in French) which we found necessary. Parking in the vicinity is at a premium and so we did not rent a car except for a three day excursion to Evora and Sagres towards the end of our stay. We stayed for a month and found, that for us, it was just too long to spend in a house spread over three floors. The kitchen and living/dining room are on the main floor but the lovely terrace is on the third so if you wanted to have a meal or even drinks on the terrace you had to maneuver trays up and down circular stairs. The living/dining room is small. As the house faces north, the sitting area is gloomy and the only lighting are wall sconces with harsh white L.E.D. lighting.

  • Very nice holiday house
    4 of 5

    Very nice holiday house with a lot of room and a beautiful, spatious garden, where you can lie down in the sun or in the shade of the fig trees. The house is very well equiped, there’s everything you need. The owner, who lives down the road and speaks German, is very helpful. It was nice to pick oranges every morning from the trees, to make fresh orange juice. If you like the sun of the Algarve, but not the touristic crowds of Albufeira, this is the place to be. There’s a small beach in Fuzeta. Unfortunately the peace and quiet is many times during the day disturbed by choirs of barking dogs, which we found very annoying. An evening walk around the block is also not recommended. We had to turn back, because some loose angry dogs came after us.
