Sehnsucht (Saudade) wird hier erfüllt.

  • 4 of 5

Sehr schönes Haus mit allem, was man im Urlaub benötigt. Hinzu kommt der Swimmingpool. Die einzigen nächtlichen Nachbarn sind die Grillen. Wer Ruhe und Entspannung sucht, ist hier richtig. Auto unabdingbar. Bei Problemen genügt ein Anruf bei Brigitta oder Olga (rund um die Uhr).

Geheimtipp für Essen: Restaurant Fialho in Pinheiro.

Top ausgestattete Villa mit tollem Meerblick

  • 5 of 5

Wir können die Casa Helena nur empfehlen: das Haus ist erstklassig ausgestattet von der Küche mit allen erdenklichen Utensilien über die Bäder mit zahlreichen Handtüchern bis hin zu den vielen Sand- und Wasserspielsachen in der Garage, die es besonders unserer kleinen Tochter angetan hatten. Alles ist sehr sehr sauber und in einem sehr schönen fast neuen Zustand.

Der Blick von der Poolterrasse und dem schön angelegten Garten auf Olhao und das Meer ist insbesondere in der Abenddämmerung und bei Dunkelheit mit den vielen Lichtern fantastisch! Das Haus liegt am Ende einer Sackgasse oben am Berg, so dass ein Auto unbedingt notwendig ist zumal auch der nächste Supermarkt einige Kilometer entfernt ist.

Wir können die umliegenden Strände sehr empfehlen: unserer 2,5 jährigen Tochter hat es im flachen Wasser auf der Insel Armona sowie am Strand von Fuseta sehr gefallen, wo auch kleine Kinder gefahrlos im Meer baden können. Die feinsandigen Atlantikstrände Praia do Barril auf der Ilha de Tavira (unser Favorit, da schon die Fahrt dorthin mit der Bimmelbahn von Pedras del Rei ein Erlebnis ist) und Fuseta (Bootstour) und Farol (Bootstour) sind ebenfalls wunderschön.

Herzlichen Dank auch an Brigitta für die wieder sehr nette und fürsorgliche Betreuung vor Ort! Wir kommen sehr gerne wieder!

Olhao, Insel Armona
Car: recommended

The free-standing Casa Helena is situated about 10 km from the town of Olhão on the mountain "Zerro do Lobo". It is very comfortably furnished and accessible via a paved private road (dead end).

Olhao has the largest fishing port in the Algarve. The two major Arab market at the harbor, offer not only fresh fish, but also fresh fruit and vegetables from the farmers in the area.

On the waterfront, as well as in the historic Old Town, there are many typical restaurants and bars.

Olhao also offers a wide range of shopping and shopping. Many large supermarkets offer an international product range.

Near the covered market, is the ferry directly on to the offshore islands of Armona, Culatra and Farol.

The small fishing town Fuseta is located about 8 km away. At the spacious promenade along the harbor can be experienced here under the palms a lively bustle with music from the bars and restaurants.
