LOVELY TOWN HOUSE

  • 5 out of 5
We have just returned from a fantastic holiday staying in Casa Ava. This town house is ideally situated to enable you to walk everywhere in Olhao with the bus and train stations just round the corner too. The amenities within the property were exactly what is needed to enable a very relaxing and happy holiday. I would like to thank the owner for allowing us to stay here. I wouldn't think twice about going back and staying in the same place again

OUR 2ND TIME

  • 5 out of 5
This was our 2nd stay at the Town house, and this time it was for two weeks. Yet again we had a great stay, Sally and I love this house. We had family stay in Olhao at the same time and they came to visit and they all said how great it was, and the amount of space we had. All i can say is we will be back next year, and hopefully as man and wife. We cannot think of a place we would rather spend our honeymoon. Thank you again.

CHILL OUT IN OLHAO

  • 5 out of 5
The house ticked all the boxes, and some.
Spacious and spotlessly clean. If you are a sun worshipper you will be well catered for with the two roof terraces. We enjoyed wandering around the maze of narrow cobbled streets with small cafes around every corner. No shortage of mini markets and the main supermarket near by. If you don`t mind doing a bit of cooking then the fish market and fruit and veg market are a must, just a few minutes walk away.
I absolutely recommend this property and hope to return in the not too distant future.

CHILL OUT IN OLHAO

  • 5 out of 5
I completely agree with the other reviews. The house ticked all the boxes, and some.
Spacious and spotlessly clean. If you are a sun worshipper you will be well catered for with the two roof terraces. We enjoyed wandering around the maze of narrow cobbled streets with small cafes around every corner. ( A smart phone with GPS is
very handy.) No shortage of mini markets and the main supermarket near by. If you don`t mind shaking the pan, then the fish market and fruit and veg market are a must, just a few minutes walk away. The whole arrangement was effortless, from booking the property with Dylan, the owner, to being met at the house by Lawrie and his wife. We were met by a taxi at the airport and returned by the same means at the end of the holiday. This was pre arranged with Dylan and Lawrie. No problems were encountered at any time.
I absolutely recommend this property and hope to return in the not too distant future.
Gladys and Alan, Scotland.

FANTASTIC TOWNHOUSE SITUATED IN IDYLLIC OLHAO

  • 5 out of 5
This was the perfect quiet getaway for myself and my partner. The house itself is perfectly situated in the heart of the fishing town, and it's 3 private terraces were perfect for us to relax on. The local eateries and culture is great, with a lovely marina and fish market just minutes from the house. We had great walks along the beach, and explored the town endlessly, discovering a wide variety of local shops.

A perfect house and priced so well. The level of cleanliness was brilliant, and a handy guide of the local area was on the table when we arrived! Strongly recommended! If you are after a quie,t cultured experience, then Olhao is for you!

Also the communication from the owner was exemplary, he made us feel very comfortable. The taxi they organised to and from the airport also took a worry off of our shoulders.

Olhao is the perfect place to feel far away from the international tourist crowd. Easy to get to, this old fishing town is full of local character and faded grandeur. Its distinctive Moorish influence still present today in the historic old quarter, with its square white buildings and narrow cobbled alleyways where the fishermen still live today, its many charms will slowly work their magic on you. On the water front restaurants spill out on to the street serving some of the best fresh sea food in the Algarve, gardens line the front and markets sell fresh local produce amongst some fantastic views across the marina. Just a short 15 minute ferry ride through the Ria Formosa National Park to the islands and there is a choice of beautiful picturesque beaches. Olhao has great transport links, only 20 minutes from Faro Airport, and regular train and bus services if you wish to explore some of the surrounding towns and villages.
