“Excellent Apartment”
Reviewed 10 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

person found this review helpful

This is the second of Sophie and Will apartments we have stayed in this year and this 3 bed apartment has lived up to our highest expectations.

The apartment is large, spacious and well furnished and decorated to the highest standard. Every need has been catered for, from wind breakers for the beach, toys for the children if using the pool and every day kitchen requirements and toiletries. There is ample choice of European TV stations and a good choice of DVD's.

There is no need for a car, the apartment is a short shuttle bus drive from Faro airport and everything in Olhao is within walking distances, beaches, supermarkets and restaurants.

With no English pubs, Irish bars the town of Olhao, with it daily fish and fruit market, is an excellent location for a true Portuguese experience. The local train station, 15 mins walk, gives access to other local towns, a train time table is part of the apartment's briefing pack.

The beaches, reached by a short ferry ride, are of the highest standard with café's, bars and sun loungers, to rent,available.

My partner and I have thoroughly enjoyed the high standard of the apartment, Olhao and the warm welcome from Sophie and Will.

We will be booking for our return next year.

A highly recommended apartment and holiday location

“Beautiful apartment with amazing views”

We stayed for 3 weeks in this very well maintained apartment with our family. It had every facility you require for an enjoyable holiday. Bright spacious rooms with modern furniture and wonderful views from every room. The apartment was well stocked and exceptionally clean also cleaned weekly with linen and towels changed. The swimming pool on the top floor was a lovely extra and had ever changing views across the bay.
The owners were most helpful and even left a little gift for our young grandchildren.
Transfers to and from the airport were also arranged.
We have previously booked many private holiday accommodation and this apartment rates very highly.
We will certainly return in the not too distant future.

“Warm, friendly hosts, first class accommodation, beautiful setting.”
Reviewed 26 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Our second visit staying in Sophie and Wim's apartment - we will certainly return. Sophie and Wim are very friendly and welcoming. The apartment is beautiful with everything you need to make your stay successful, the views from the balcony are breathtaking and the small town of Olhau has not been spoilt by too much tourism, with small family restaurants sitting cheek by jowl with small businesses necessary to maintain the local infrastructure. The local fish market is well worth a visit along with short boat rides to visit small islands blest with white sands and warm seas.

“Fabulous location, excellently appointed apartment with welcoming and attentive owners.”
Reviewed 13 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

My family and I stayed from 31st May 2015 for 1 week. We were met at the airport by the taxi transfer arranged for us by the owner. We arrived at the apartment to a warm welcome where we were shown around and provided with lots of information about the area and things we could do during our stay. The apartment was the perfect size for our party (4 adults and 1 toddler). The swimming pool and roof terrace were ideal with ample space for the sun loungers provided - as well as this the area was very child friendly. The apartment is a short stroll away from the centre of town which has fabulous fruit and fish markets as well as a lovely restaurants. There were also two children's play areas within short walking distance. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will happily come back again. We would also like to thank Sophie and Wim for their excellent hospitality in particular they're welcome gift for our daughter which made her feel at home straight away. As well as this they came to the rescue to help my husband and father while in the supermarket as they realised they could not carry all that had been purchased back to apartment!
