fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

have stayed here twice - very good location in the town in a very clean modern block

can see the sun rising over the sea from the bed and sun set from the balcony off the kitchen

come in the late spring /summer and watch/hear the storks who nest 100 yds away

the facilities are excellent

no need for a car as town is at hand and buses and trains are very good

will come back again

excellent apartment not far from local amenities

  • 5 of 5

cannot fault this apartment, beautifully clean, modern, in a nice quite block

Dr mitchell was very helpful even arranged taxi pick up and return for us!!

the kitchen has every facility you could wish for, the only thing missing was a hairdryer so take your own.

There is a small restaurant nearby where you can get a 3 course meal with a drink for 8 euros and the food was wonderful. The lovely lady was so helpul, even gave me the recipe for the soup .

Nothing seems overpriced in Olhao, and getting the ferry is easy and I have walking problems.

I would certainly recomend this apartment to anyone
