In newer annex to the two bedrooms, a dressing room and a are two bathrooms. The kitchen and bathroom were extensively renovated in the spring of 2016 and there is now fast Internet.

It is surrounded by bushes, trees and pastures, a paradise for birds, rabbits, chameleons and rest-seeking vacationers.

The house offers simple but comfortable rooms, everything is available to enjoy a relaxing holiday. Casa do Esquilo convincing means cozy, green environment, good facilities, complete privacy and a moderate rent.

  • 5 of 5

Nous sommes enchantés par notre séjour à Casa de Esquilo. La maison est très bien équipée , que ce soit dedans ou dehors et un éritable havre de paix pour se reposer . L'accueil de Heidi fut très chaleureux et ses conseils très pratiques. Nous avons trouvé la maison tout de suite malgré sa position un peu retirée grace aux indications précises du propriétaire. La maison est propre, bien entretenue. Nous la recommenderions sans problème à nos amis.Elle est très bien située, la plage de Fuseta est à 10 minutes en voiture , Olhao est tout proche(ferries pour les îles de Culatra et Armona, restaurants ,commerces et marché).Nous reviendrons avec plaisir car nous avons apprécié l'authenticité de la région d'Olhao.Encore merci à Heidi et Jens !

The area is ideal for exciting walks through the valley and the adjacent hills, and even the lagoon beach Praia dos Cavacos at the Ria Formosa can be reached with an easy walk of about 30 minutes on foot.

By car you get to the popular market halls of Olhão in just 10 minutes. In this vibrant city there are also many restaurants, cafés and shops. But the trip to the cozy Fuseta, translating from where in the summer the ferries every minute to the Atlantic beach, hardly lasts longer.
