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

Guestbook comments from the owner
We stayed in Hoopoe House at the end of May 2011 and could not recommend it highly enough. We were looking for a holiday that would keep our 18 month old daughter entertained but safe, allow us a little space to relax on an evening, and if possible we wanted something with character in a location away from the busy package holiday market - and this was everything we wanted. Martin was a perfect host and made sure we were well looked after. The house is beautiful and located off a quiet road just a stones throw away from the lagoons of the Ria Formosa and beyond that the amazing sandbank beaches. We hired a car so access to all the attractions on the algarve was very easy but you could cycle to and from nearby Olhao if you fancy. I was really impressed by the algarve, it had much more to offer than we realised, and staying at Hoopoe house was an absolute pleasure. If you like peace and quiet, wildlife, and fantastic views I can only recommend a visit!
