                                                                                                      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!

The house is lovely - very well-equipped, perfectly located near the marina, the old town and shops and restaurants and only a five minute walk from the bus station. Veronica and Bruno are very welcoming and cannot do enough for you. We highly recommend this property and are hoping to return again.
