HOUSE FLAMINGO HOUSE: 1 BEDROOM, SLEEPS 4

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday home in Olhao - Casa Flor de Sal

Quiet family friendly accommodation close to the sea.

Casa Flor de Sal lies in the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve and enjoys sea views and a seclusion rarely found these days along the Algarvian coast. We have three apartments available in the property: Hoopoe House in the one end of our 250 year old farm house, and Stork House and Flamingo House in a newer building of similar style. You may be content just to enjoy the sun, pool, and peace. Otherwise, the wonderful, long, sandy beaches and the bird life of the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve are close at hand. You can also swim in the Lagoon or cross to the sandy islands. The nature reserve is very rich in bird life and other wildlife, being the crossing point for migratory birds travelling between Africa and Europe. Children can play in the outdoor playground and it is possible to rent bikes at Casa Flor de Sal to go for a ride.

Casa Flor de Sal is approved by the local authorities and registered as Alojamento Local No. 48 in Olhão

The Best Yet!

  • 5 out of 5
In the past we have used HomeAway to find places to stay in several countries (for example, Brazil, Puerto Rico, Cape Cod in the U.S.), but this site is by far our best choice. The reality exceeded the description.We hesitated to write this review, because one of the charms of Casa Flor de Sal is its privacy and quiet comfort. Once people learn about this place it will be hard to find it vacant, so please do not tell other people about it. Martin and Alexandra have worked hard to design and maintain a near perfect site, and their presence adds immensely to the experience. The natural swimming pool they have recently added is a delight, especially for those of us who cherish eco-friendly environments. Our only complaint is that we chose to stay but one week. A month would have been much better. We hope to correct that error next year.

Perfect roof terrace, new and clean

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed 7 nights in the cottage. All new, very clean and with all facilities one would require for a perfect holiday. We especially enjoyed the relaxing hours (while our baby was sleeping) at the roof terrace.

Flamingo house

  • 5 out of 5
We wanted a quiet week not to far from any thing and we got this little haven.
We had a very nice week flamingo cottage faclities where fabulous and more than enough of every thing i.e bbq sun beds sun terrace to sit on the owner was on hand if you need any advice as to the area.We hired a car which is a must but you are in a good place to visit beach or town for shopping not to far to drive to spain.The shopping centre only 15 mins away for food take aways
too.Everything is spotless and would be lovely for children plenty to do football swing, pool plenty of room to play and a locked gate to keep them safe.
Thank you again for a lovely week hope to book again.Next year.

Beautiful cottage, peaceful location, no crowds

  • 5 out of 5
We wanted a week in Portugal for our pre-baby moon; somewhere quiet, near the sea and with a pool for relaxing. At Martin and Alexandra's Flamingo cottage this is exactly what we got and more. Flamingo has that bit more privacy than Stork so it suited us great. The recently renovated self-catering accommodation is spotless, beautifully decorated and contains everything you could need. Deciding whether to relax on the roof terrace (great for sunsets) or in the outdoor patio area (with BBQ) was often the most difficult decision of the day. The cottage is off the beaten track so a hire car is a must; with Martin's directions it was very easy to find however. Located mid-way between Fuzeta and Olhao means you have a plenty of restaurant and local food market choices to explore. Since the cottages are in the nature reserve, you are not really walking distance to a beach (although there are lots of nice walks within the nature reserve to be had). If you are into birds of the feathered kind this is a great base for exploring the flora and fauna of nature reserve. The best beach, Praia do Barril, is a short drive away and you take a small train (1euro) out beyond the sand dunes to the ocean. Taveria is a great town too for food and a lazy afternoon of wandering. A drive into the cork hills north of the Tavira and Fuzeta is also a good day trip. The area is quiet even in June and is a lovely contrast to the busy Western Algarve. We really didn't want to leave the cottage and plan to return next year for our post-baby moon (with baby). This is a fabulous cottage in a great, quiet location but close enough to a few towns and beaches to get what you need to complete your holiday!

Flamingo House September 2010

  • 5 out of 5
We have just returned from a week's stay in Flamingo House at Casa Flor de Sal having enjoyed a lovely peaceful time in top class accommodation.
This cottage has been refurbished over the winter and was fantastic. Absolutely spotless with a large, comfortable double bedroom (with air con), a gorgeous bathroom with a huge walk in shower, ample living room and kitchen areas with all the facilities and equipment you could require. We had more than enough crockery and cutlery plus all the cooking utensils we needed but best was a super BBQ and patio area where we ate all our meals in the lovely Portuguese sunshine. The roof terrace is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the weather or stare at the stars in the clear night sky.
If required the cottage has been thoughtfully supplied with a computer, satellite TV, DVD player and various table games and there is a small petanque piste at the bottom of the property and a small swimming pool.
Martin and Alexandra are helpful but unobtrusive hosts, available for suggestions or advice if required.
We enjoyed visiting the markets in Olhao (don't miss the outside market on a Saturday too), the walled town of Old Faro, Tavira and the Cork Route at Sao Bras de Alportel. We also had two really good and very reasonably priced meals at O Bote restaurant in Olhao.
All in all we had a fabulous time in some of the best self catering accommodation we have ever stayed in. We can thoroughly recommend Casa Flor de Sal.

Flamingo House Juni 2013

  • 5 out of 5
Wir verbrachten zwei schöne und entspannte Wochen im Flamingo House. Das Flamingo House können wir unbedingt weiter empfehlen. Es ist sehr schön eingerichtet und war sehr sauber. Wir würden sofort wieder hinfahren, da wir die Ruhe sehr genossen. Der Kontakt zum deutsch sprachigen Vermieter war sehr gut. Wir empfehlen unbedingt ein Auto, da Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, Strände und Restaurants sich nicht in unmittelbarer Nähe befinden.

Owner's Response: Vielen Dank für die nette Wörter. Wir haben jedes Jahr Gäste, die auch ohne Auto sehr zufrieden sind. Es ist aber eine Temperamentsache - ich wurde mit Kinder oder in Hochsommer auch lieber ein Auto mieten.
