About Mrs Cailleux

We are a French-Portuguese family with 3 children who live in Paris. We spend our holidays for 15 years in the center of Algarve.

We love everything of the Algarve : the climate summer and winter alike, the gastronomy, the sympathy of the portugueses, the beautiful fine sand beaches, the paths along the coast, the freshness of the Serra de Monchique and the medieval ferias of Silves, the wild islands which surround the lagoon da Ria Formosa, the desert of the cape St Vincent, the history of Sagres, the boat trips...

The children like quite particularly the aquatic parks, the Zoo Marine, the circuit of kart of Almancil...

Finally, we appreciate just as much to have within reach of hands the comfort and the modern infrastructures of an European country.

Because we really like very much Algarve, we intend even to move there one day...

Mrs Cailleux purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Mrs Cailleux chose Albufeira

After spending holidays in central Algarve for 15 years, we decided to buy a property. We chose this residence because the location is exceptional and it is one of the last new modern building having been built in sea front.

We fell under the fisherman's village of Olhos d’Agua and its eponym beach who knew how to keep their traditional character.

The name ' Olhos d' Agua ' means ' eyes of water ', it comes from the fresh water springs that rise in the beach.

When you leave the building, you are on a pedestrian street which allows you a direct access to the beach. It offers you numerous snack bars, ice-cream bars and restaurants where you can have an outdoor drink in the terrace to contemplate the horizon.

The pedestrian street continues on a walk lined with palm trees along the beach to arrive at the huts of traditional fishermen with lovely colored boats on the banister of launch.

You do not have more than to take advantage of grilled sardines or seafood platter to the restaurant ' La Cigale ' or simply a ' bica ' (strong coffee).

If you like sport, in low tide you can walk (or run) on the fine sand during almost 7 km until famous Vilamoura, its casino and its marina.

If you love marine life, you can observe between tides : limpets, topshells, buckshot barnacles, sea anemones and brightly coloured seaweed. The jagged rock formations give rise to isolated group of rocks, undercutting, archess, cavities and small sheltered coves, especially at the western end of the beach.

If you play golf, you can reach in 10 min on foot Balaia Golf, course of 9 holes. Approximately 18 golf, on 36 that offers Algarve, are situated unless 20 min by car.

If you are fond of night parties, Albufeira is accessible unless 5 min by car or by the local bus 'EVA' nearby.

What makes this apartment unique

Olhos d’Agua offers in the same time the peace and the charm of an old fishermen's village and the proximity of all the urban conveniences.

Its central location in Algarve allows to have a fast access to the airport (30 km), to visit the west coast until the Cap Sao Vicente (1h10 by A22), or to leave eastward to Castro Marim (50 min).

Algarve is a magnificent region which offers a big diversity of landscapes, atmospheres, activities, climate. That is why, everybody can spend of excellent holidays there and compose so its own souvenirs. If you wish, we can recommend you addresses or major sites, according to your tastes.

The duplex was carefully fitted out, it is functional and very well equipped. He allows to take advantage completely of holidays all year round: the system of air-conditioning in all the rooms brings some freshness in summer and heating for the colder months of winter.

You take advantage of an exceptional view from the private terrace or from the swimming pool fitted out with green spaces. Private parking lot closed for 2 cars.

Towels, bed linen and cleaning are included in the price of the rent. Towels are changed twice a week, linen of bed changed once a week.

Well maintained property in ideal location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for the month of September and could not have asked for a better location to enjoy the beach as well as tour the Algarve. The apartment is modern, clean and well maintained and any questions/issues were promply delt with by the owner. Would recommend it to anyone looking for a beach location that is centrally located and enables you to tour other areas.

Great holiday experience

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully clean, spacious and well maintained apartment. Very tasteful pretty decor with two large double bedrooms and a great open plan kitchen/lounge area.I would highly recommend this apartment it is in a great central location with beach less than 50 metres away and surrounded by good restaurants and bars. Really nice swimming pool on site well worth a visit but can only be accessed by over 60 steps so by the end of the holiday your fitness levels are increased significantly. Excellent customer service from the manager/ owner of the property who graciously allowed us to leave our suitcases several hours before the check in time.

Empfehlenswert!

  • 5 of 5

Wer das beschauliche Olhos d'Agua mag, ist in dieser perfekt gelegenen Ferienwohnung bestens aufgehoben. Es sind tatsächlich nur wenige Schritte bis zum Strand; von der großzügigen Terasse aus blickt man direkt auf den Atlantik.

Die Wohnung ist geschmackvoll und modern eingerichtet, die Betten von guter Qualität. Die Ausstattung der Küche ist überschaubar, Pfeffer und Salz sollte man von zu Hause mitbringen. Den oberhalb des Hauses gelegenen Pool haben wir nicht genutzt, er sah auch nicht unbedingt einladend aus. Da man bei 20 Grad Wassertemperatur in der zweiten Oktoberhälfte noch problemlos im Meer baden kann, stellte dies aus unserer Sicht kein Problem dar. Auch für Kleinkinder ist das Apartment geeignet, u. a. ist das Geländer der Terasse recht hoch, sodass unsere Zwillinge (knapp zwei Jahre) unbeschwert auf der Terasse spielen konnten. Auch der Wohnbereich bietet erfreulich viel Platz.

Die Vermieterin, Madame Bernadette Callieux, erwies sich als freundlich und hilfsbereit, so durften wir z. B. am Abreisetag bis in den Nachmittag hinein in der Wohnung bleiben.

Alles in allem waren wir sehr zufrieden und sind sicher, dass wir wiederkommen werden!

Sehr gut

  • 5 of 5

Sehr gepflegte Ferienwohnung mit sehr guter Ausstattung. Eine der beiden Terassen bietet direkten Meerblick, auf dieser Terasse hört man am Abend zwischen 21Uhr und 24Uhr auch die Musik aus den unten gelegenen Restaurants. (das sollte hier erwähnt werden obwohl wir es nicht so schlimm fanden, bei Bedarf kann man ja auf die hintere Terasse ausweichen, die ist ruhiger)

Alles an und in dieser Wohnung war wirklich Klasse inlusive Pool mit Meerblick.

Der Kontakt und die Kommunikation mit den Vermietern war hervorragend.

Wir würden die Wohnung jederzeit wieder buchen.

Apartamento 5*

  • 5 of 5

Apartamento moderno, com terraços e uma vista fantástica. Cozinha muito bem equipada (Máquinas de lavar roupa, loiça, etc.).

Piscina agradável com vista para a praia, o único inconveniente os degraus para lá chegar... E talvez a sombra no fim da tarde, mas que certamente não será um problema em pleno verão.

Localização excelente, sossegado (mesmo à noite) e sem necessidade de viatura. A praia fica mesmo à saída do prédio, assim como os restaurantes, pastelarias, lojas etc.

Proprietários muito prestáveis e simpáticos. Foi sem dúvida uma estadia muito agradável, recomenda-se...
