Traumhaus

  • 5 of 5

Seit mittlerweile zehn Jahren verbringen wir unseren Sommerurlaub in Einzelhäusern in Südeuropa - und dieses war das bislang beste. Toll gelegen, mit einem großen Außenbereich für die Kinder und viel Platz im Inneren.

Abends ist es dort so ruhig, dass man das Rauschen des Meeres hören kann - mehr geht nicht.

Auch die Lage ist gut. In Fuseta kann man wunderbar baden (am besten mit dem Boot auf die Insel fahren), Tavira ist eine sehenswerte Stadt. Und die Markthalle in Olhao mit all dem Fisch ist ein Traum.

Fazit: Uneingeschränkt empfehlenswert, wenn man seine Ruhe haben möchte.

absolut traumhaftes Haus

  • 5 of 5

Den Aufenthalt im Haus Contrabaixo können wir nur wärmstens empfehlen.

Wir waren im Juni für 4 Woche dort und haben uns vom ersten Tag an wohlgefühlt. Das ging eigentlich schon bei der super Betreuung bei der Haussuche los und endete mit der reibungslose Übergabe am letzten Tag.

Das Haus selbst ist wirklich wie auf den Bilder und liegt sehr ruhig. Von den Nachbar ist quasi nichts zu hören. Es ist mit allem was man benötigt ausgestattet und alles ist in einem sehr guten Zustand. Man findet immer ein gemütliches Plätzchen in der Sonne oder im Schatten, je nachdem wie man es gerade bevorzugt.

Wir hatten eine sehr schöne Zeit dort und denken gerne daran zurück.

Car: recommended

The house Contrabaixo lies in the nature reserve of the Ria Formosa, a paradise for flora and fauna. Just a few meters from the house begins the lagoon area, which is heavily influenced by the tides and at any time of day shows a different face. At low tide you can take walks to the islands and swim in the Atlantic Ocean. Arroteia is a cozy village, which is dominated by fishermen and shell collectors. 2 bars and restaurants invite you to linger.

Lively it is in neighboring Fuseta, where there are shopping facilities, many restaurants, some nightlife and the Fährzugang to the island of Armona.
