The Cabane is a perfect quiet hideaway for two people. Set in a beautiful garden, with pool, it is just a stone's throw from the water's edge. The Cabane itself is fully equipped with all conveniences, and very stylishly designed. It has a generous bedroom, separate shower and WC en-suite, a living room and good kitchen. Outside, a small shaded terrace overlooks the sea, and Caroline's garden gives a lovely backdrop. The lagoon is literally right outside the gate, when we were there it was dotted with small boats and clam pickers at low tide. There is a sandy public beach a few hundred metres to the west, an easy walk. The nearest town of Olhao is a 10 minute drive, very easy, with supermarkets, a covered market, ferries to the islands, cafes & resturants, and countless lovely old lanes to wander around. Very atmospheric. Tavira is about 20 minutes drive, very beautiful but a bit of a tourist trap compared to the more authentic feel of Olhao. This area is less affected by mass tourism than some parts of the Algarve although there is plenty to do and see. If you want a peaceful week, with friendly hosts in a charming spot then the Cabane would be a good choice. The host's two dogs are friendly too, well behaved and great entertainment.
