Olhao is still the local fishing village that it always was and you can still see the fisherman unloading their catch or mending their nets. There is also an excellent local market here every day which sells local fresh produce. In the evenings during the summer there is plenty of local entertainment along the seafront and a museum, cinema and plenty of local fish restaurants.

The ancient walled city of Faro is a delightful place to explore. Once a trading port, it has seen several invasions and has both Arab and Roman ruins. Make sure you visit the 13th century Cathedral in the square and the beautiful Episcopal Palace nearby. The golden church of Nossa Senhora do Carmo certainly lives up to its name with wonderful gold leaf woodwork.

The nearby village of Estoi has the remains of a Roman villa which enjoyed surprisingly modern home comforts for its time!

                                                                                                      This is our ninth extended winter break in this apartment, which speaks for itself. This one bedroom apartment is well-equipped and has been perfect for us as a retired couple. Many apartments are full of 'sad', ageing decor, furniture and equipment. Not so this one. In addition, when things have gone wrong, they have been put right quickly and efficiently. The views from the balcony are stupendous, as shown in the photograph. WYSIWYG; the photos shown are not taken when craning your neck, leaning out at a dangerous angle, and only occurring for 10 minutes at sunrise or sunset. The balcony is very large; there is plenty of room to spread out, which is again unusual. In the winter months, the sun rises just to its left and only disappears around 15h. at the earliest, later as the spring approaches. The local beach, with its active fishing community, is only a 5-10 minute walk down the steps, of which there are many; it may take longer to walk back! For those not wishing to use the steps, the lift down to the public car park six floors below brings you out near beach level. Once on the beach, at low spring tides and when the sand is plentiful, we have walked to Falésia beach and onwards to Vilamoura (a good few kilometres), and also the other way to Maria Luisa beach. Sand amounts do, however, vary considerably from day to day and year to year. In 2017 it would have been a scramble over rocks to make the same walks. We self-cater but even in the winter a few restaurants are open in the evening, more by day. If you have a car, as we do, then the parking two floors below is secure and easily reached by the lift just down the corridor towards the building's entrance. Olhos de Agua is an ideal centre from which to explore the Algarve; to Cape St. Vincent westwards or towards Spain across the Guadiana river to the east, and also inland to the Alentejo. The Algarve does not have the extremes of high-rise development which curse the Spanish costas; the countryside beautiful, and the nearby villages and towns interesting to explore, with lots of surviving old buildings, well-cared for by the Portuguese authorities. One of the best!

Set in a highly exclusive and very beautiful road right opposite a top class golf course. We loved the championship quality pool table. Best I have ever played on. We swam in the lovely pool every morning and evening, and found it easy to roll the cover back over the pool every evening so the heating could work to maximum effect. Comfortable swimming temperature in February. The fish and vegetable market in the old part of Quarteira was a real find for us. The owner George handled our booking of the villa perfectly. We arrived to find the villa immaculately clean with a bottle of wine left out on the table. The pool and garden maintenance people came twice in out week and kept everything up to the highest standards without ever interfering with our privacy and sense of ownership of the house and grounds. We emailed George a few days before arrival and asked if he knew of how to hire bikes. He found the right company for us. They delivered top class bike to the villa at a very good price. My son and I had brand new suspension mountain bikes and enjoyed great riding along the coast and up on to some challenging off road tracks in the hills north of the villa. We were spoilt for choice with great golf courses, from the world class ones that adjoin the villa to smaller 9 hole courses like Balaia where they welcomed our 9 year old and supplied clubs and shoes for us all. By turning right out of out front drive we were able to walk to the local bakery in 5 minutes and also reach Brown's Sports Club in the same time to play tennis or squash or enjoy good coffee in the morning or drinks and home made hamburgers in the evening. If you can't find the bakery,,,,ask for directions in Browns. Its tucked just down the lane by the orange groves and does great morning pastries. The marina is surrounded by great bars and restaurants. The cinema surround sound in the villa is great so take some DVDs. Thank you for an exceptional holiday!

                                                                                                      The villa and facilities are very good. We stayed during February half term and so the area was quiet and we had the pool to ourselves, this was ideal for us but it may be a problem for some people. Off season will mean few, if any, other people in surrounding properties. We had four children and two adults and the property was ample size for our party. We are Foster Carers, it was the first time abroad for three of the children and we do not think the holiday could have been any better. The children were very impressed with the villa and the word of the week was "fantastico". We would also recommend the taxi company "Manuel Inacio", 00351 919 222 230 the chauffeur service is excellent and very clean vehicles. A very small negative is that on arrival a deposit of 250 euros is paid, we would have preferred an option to have paid this in sterling. We would definitely recommend this property and we are seriously considering returning later in the year. Many thanks to the owners for sharing your lovely holiday home with us. It is a credit to you.
