About Hayley Strange

Couple living in South Wales who purchased (and got married) in Portugal as we think of it as our 2nd home and like to spend as much time there with our teenage son as possible.

Hayley Strange purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Hayley Strange chose Olhao

We fell in love with the Eastern Algarve area as it has an unspoilt, natural feel, incredibly friendly people and of course climate, food and beaches to die for. For us Olhao feels like a real Portuguese town with lovely architecture rather than a tourist destination, although it has so much to offer (and the Portuguese themselves definitely see it as a holiday resort particularly for the Aug maritime festival), with a fabulous 5* spa hotel, expanded marina and many restaurants offering fabulous fresh food at a fraction of the cost of other resorts. Faro airport only 15-20 mins away means you can be in the pool within an hour of landing! Miles of beaches just a short ferry ride away and good local transport mean you don't need a car, although exploring the hillside towns is a treat.

What makes this apartment unique

The property is set in a stunning modern stylish development with a rooftop pool which means you can enjoy all day sunshine without moving more than a floor away from our 2 luxuriously appointed 2 bedroom apartments with all modern conveniences - these can be taken together which is ideal for large families/groups as we found in Aug 2012 when we had a family holiday for 10 (including 2 year old twin niece/nephew and 6 year old), all had fab time in pool and loved taking the catamaran to get to the beach. The views of the Ria Formosa are truly spectacular and our spacious balcony gives you a fantastic outlook over the Ihlas, whilst being less than a 5 minute walk away from the restaurants and the Olhao market one of the biggest and best on the Algarve - particularly if you like fresh fish!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"An absolutely first class property that was really value for money. All the facilities are first class. The local town is minutes away and offers excellent choice of restaurants, particularly fish restaurants. We will be back!" When my friend & I decided to go for a week's holiday, we wanted somewhere where we could chill out………and boy did we get that when we went to Olhao!!!! The apartment is amazing, done to a very high standard, we were completely blown over by it when we arrived. It was clean, fresh towels were put out for us, we felt completely safe and relaxed it was like being home from home for us, it had everything in it that we could have asked for……..and more!

Thank you

  • 5 of 5

Having briefly visited Olhao, a picturesque and very friendly fishing town,a few years ago, we decided to have a holiday there. We were very lucky to discover this apartment. It is perfectly situated at the edge of the resort with just a short walk along the promenade to the shops and restaurants with their varied and very affordable menus. The apartment itself is just lovely, with everything you would need for a relaxing holiday. Chris the agent was there to meet us on arrival and couldn't have been more helpful. There is a LIDL a short walk away which is incredibly good value for money. At the other end of town is a marina from which we went on a short boat trip to one of the nearby islands where we had a delicious meal and we also took a trip to Spain on the train (a timetable would be handy). Newly opened on the complex is a charming small cocktail bar cum restaurant where we enjoyed a delicious breakfast. We had a very enjoyable time in Olhao and will certainly be back.

GREAT APARTMENT, GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for better than this spotlessly clean, stylish and well-kept apartment with a sea view from its sunny balcony and a selection of good restaurants an easy ten-minute walk away. It was equipped with everything one could need for even a long stay - and everything worked properly!

House manager Chris Towle met us on arrival and showed us the ropes - he'd even put on the apartment heating for us as the weather was cool the first night of our stay.

We'd heartily recommend Olhao, and especially Hayley's apartments to any one, and hope to return in the future. Restaurants - the fish ones are great, and what's on the menu would have been landed only a couple of hours before - offer good value, the paderies all do excellent 'coffee and cake' snacks at any time. For jazz freaks the Canteloupe bar behind the fish market is worth a visit, especially on Thursday nights. All in all, a pleasant stay, and a brilliant apartment - thanks, Hayley!

Fabulous stay....gorgeous apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a fab stay at the Marina village apartments...thank you to Hayley for accommodating our needs. The apartment is fabulous, literally like home from home, everything you could think of is provided and on hand in the apartment. With an added bonus of a starter pack with dish washer tabs, dish cloths, washing up liquid etc.....really helpful. The location itself is great, just a 5 minute walk to the small town with restaurants and bars on offer along the marina front. Lidl supermarket is a 10 minute walk and really cheap to stock up on essentials. All in all the apartment was lovely with a rooftop pool, a little cold but fine once you get in. Would highly recommend a stay at This apartment, was spotless and extremely well kept.

Thanks again to Hayley.

One ferry stops opposite the apartments and the other is a 5 minute walk in the town. There are many boat trips such as dolphin watching, and plenty of other blue flag sandy beaches are in the area such as Fuzeta, Faro and Barrill beaches which are approximately 15 minute drive.

Travel:

Faro airport is 20 minutes away by car/taxi costing approx 25 euros. Airport transfer can also be arranged by our local agents. Car hire is not essential as there are good train and bus services from Olhao to points across the Algarve and Lisbon, and many tour services to local (and even Spanish) attractions, since the Spanish border is only 60km away, although car hire is useful to go further afield, for example into the Algarve foothill towns/villages. Airport collection service is available.

Further Details:
