Dr Lawrie Mitchell speaks English & French purchased this apartment in 2011

Portugal was my first overseas visit when I did a student holiday job many years ago.Have also worked as medical doctor in the Algarve and grew to love the area, the people and the climate-inexpensive restaurant meals and good cheap wine may also have had something to do with it!. We have three apartments in Olhao which while in touristy Algarve is still a working Portuguese town Each of our apartments is well located-one, one minute from the quay for the boats to the isands, one 7 minutes and the last one 15 minutes from the quay.The first apartement is rented until mid July 2013. This property with great views of the town and so near Ria Shopping attracted us immediately. If you come you will see why. Not many have a veranda as expansive as ours

Great views of the town and offshore islands in the distance, Fine veranda and proximity to Ria Shopping with it's range of shops, supermarket, pharmacy restaurants, go-kart racing etc. All attractions of the town are within easy walking distance

VERY CONVENIENT LOCATION

  • 4 out of 5
The owners Lawrie and Eme are very nice. Arrangements were easy to make, Lawrie arranged for airport taxi pick up and return. They were always contactable if needed. The neighbours in the apartment block are very friendly and quiet. Only heard them once and that was when Portugal got knocked out of world cup - but they might have heard me when England went out! The apartment has every thing needed for a holiday and the WiFi was a bonus. There were two brand new, very comfortable single beds on our arrival. The double bed out of that bedroom had been placed in the very large lounge, which could be very useful to families. The very large balcony got the sun from 0700 to 1800 during our stay in June. Ample for us. The balcony is reasonably private when you are sitting/laying down on sunbeds. There is a little noise from traffic and pedestrians but this is a residential area and it had little effect on us. Supermarket/shopping centre two mins.away. Within five minutes of walking into town, commercial properties start. After crossing railway line, at first traffic lights if you turn left there if a very nice French restaurant. Really nice owners and offer very cheap, excellent lunches and drinks. English menu. Do not be put off by exterior its very nice inside. Pleasant walk into town and to the sea front area. We are looking forward to our return stay in September.

GREAT PLACE TO BE

  • 5 out of 5
Olhao is a typical Algarvian fishing Town, with authentic Portuguese culture. The apartment is well placed for local shopping, and easy walking distance to Railway & Waterfront. We found the accommodation extremely well equipped for every need, including Wi-Fi & satellite TV. Our host, Lawrie could not have been more helpful. And to add to our satisfaction, the weather is mostly warm at this time.

NICE APPARTMENT WITH GOOD LOCATION

  • 4 out of 5
We arrived on 23 December 2012 and stayed until 1 February 2013. The appartment was nice and clean and had all equipment you may need also for a rather long stay. The service provided was very good. The appartment is situated next to Olhao's biggest shopping center and just 10-15 min. walk to the old town and the seaside.

It is a pleasure to recommend it, Ann-Christine and Johnny Nilsson, Sweden

LOVELY APARTMENT IN VERY GOOD LOCATION; GOOD VALUE

  • 4 out of 5
The apartment was as described and the owner provided excellent service. Everything worked! We certainly recommend this property.

Everything we needed in Olhao was within comfortable walking distance of the apartment. Its location is particularly handy for the railway station, but the coach/local bus station is only a few minutes away, and ferry services to the islands off Olhao are reached by a leisurely stroll through the town centre.

The Ria shopping centre really is just round the corner, and the town centre provides many other shops, markets, restaurants, bars, and cafes.

We found the apartment an ideal base for our trips out to the islands and their beaches, and our outings to Faro, Tavira, etc.

There's an excellent nature reserve on the eastern edge of town, too.

We thoroughly enjoyed Olhao. It was good to avoid the excesses of the "tourist" Algarve and stay somewhere so calm and pleasant. We felt very much at home there - the apartment helped make us so - and we will return in due course.

Owner's Response: Hello from Olhao
Many thanks for your review. It seems you share our feelings that Olhao is not the typical touristy Algarve and you are more in the Prtuguese ambience than most othe coastal Algarve towns. Pleased you enjoyed your stay and we hope o see you again

UN SÉJOUR TRÈS AGRÉABLE!

  • 5 out of 5
Nous avons reçu un accueil très chaleureux (le propriétaire est venu nous chercher au train); il y avait même une bouteille de champagne car nous fêtions notre 40e anniversaire. L'appartement est spacieux,très propre et bien équipé. Il répond à tous les critères énumérés dans l'annonce. En plus, nous avons eu la surprise de trouver de l'air climatisé, qui n'était pas mentionné…L'unité est dans la cuisine et suffit à nous rafraichir…
L'appartement est bien situé: 8 minutes de la gare, 25 minutes du port, d'où nous pouvons prendre un bateau pour nous rendre sur les îles pour profiter des magnifiques plages…Nous avons reçu un excellent service de la part du propriétaire qui parle français…L'épicerie est à deux pas et plusieurs autres magasins sont à proximité…

Nous recommandons cette location sans hésiter car nous avons beaucoup apprécié notre séjour…(nous avions accès à plusieurs stations de télé et au Wi-fi.)
