About Odette Araújo

People say that I am friendly polite and too exigent the conditions of the house that I rent.

At this point I find myself out of the country but I delegate the task at family and I am sure they will receive as well as myself!

Odette Araújo purchased this villa in 2007

Why Odette Araújo chose Estômbar

It is a very sunny house with very large indoor and outdoor spaces, with very good energy, close to everything but sheltered of confusion.

You will find almost everything you need and you will go away missing the time you spent there, I am sure!

What makes this villa unique

What made me love and buy this house was the simplicity of the architecture and the size of the rooms as well as the location!

The house was beautiful and spacious. The pool was great. The grass had not been cut in a very long

  • 4 of 5

We shared this property with family friends and we really enjoyed it. It was quiet and not too busy of an area for Algarve. It was close to beaches, restaurants and grocery stores. The only thing was we had to buy a fan so we could sit in the living room. It was extremely hot on the main floor if you wanted to get out of the outside heat.

Owner's Response: Hi! Thank You so much! I am glad you enjoyed! It is a surprise for me that you find the main floor so hot... Really I allways recommend ( at Welcome book) to keep the Blinds almost closed, with the glass windows opened: front windows by mornig and rear windows by the afternoon: It results!

A great place to relax in style

  • 5 of 5

The property is well kept and is very spacious and well decorated. We were eight people all told and felt very much at home. The house is very large and if the weather isn't so great it's a great place to relax. Good location insamuch as you're near to Portimao and the beaches are a short drive away. The owner Odette was very helpfull in all ways.

Férias perfeitas!!!

  • 5 of 5

Passámos uma semana, em agosto, na moradia “Villa Ojuara”, que nos proporcionou umas ótimas férias em família (3 casais, duas crianças e uma cadelinha). A proprietária, DªOdette, desde o primeiro contato até ao final da nossa estadia, mostrou sempre a preocupação de nos assegurar todas as condições e conforto, levando-nos a sentir como que se estivéssemos em casa. Adorámos tudo e, por isso mesmo, em 2016, desejamos voltar!!!!

Excelent accomodation

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house, excellent space and fully equipped. Great outdoor area with swimming pool. Location is great, close to beaches, yet far from the crowds. Odette, the owner, made everything to make us feel comfortable. We had a wonderful time. You can count on us again next year!

Stunning home, hospitality and vacation !

We had a great time at Ojuara Villa, after being welcome by charming owner Odette, who was extremely helpful , had lots of information that eased our few days at Algarve and even gave us a discount voucher for her Marisqueira at Portimão , with delicious seafood and fish dishes !!! Thank you Odette, we loved it !!!

The Ojuara townhouse is homely, elegant , cosy , spacious and well equipped !

Plenty of space for our kids to romp around and keep themselves entertained and the fireplace was an added bonus to our few days stay !

Pity it was too cold to swimm in the pool, but the outdoor space is very inviting for relaxation and family games !

Definitely will recommend Ojuara Villa to friends and family !

And will come back in warmer weather !

Thank you, Odette for helping us to have such a pleasant stay at Algarve !

Owner's Response: Tank you Marília to be so kind. For me, it was a pleasure to receive you at Ojuara Villa. I like when people enjoy and I think that you and your family, definitively, deserve it.What a pity it was just a few days! Yes, I hope you comeback and preferably in warm wheather, although Algarve at this time, is also delicious! Next time will be even better, I promise. Waiting to hear from you, ok? Have a hug Odette"
