The Algarve / East Algarve region
The Algarve is a fantastic destination for those wanting to escape to a sunny paradise. The weather is warm, with days filled with sunshine and relaxation. Gorgeous beaches are close by with the nearest being Fuzeta and Pedras Del Rei which are 10mins and 15 mins away . There are over 17 championship golf courses in the Algarve and many other golf courses as well, the nearest is 3 mins away in Moncarapacho, the next village.
The Olhao / Quelfes area
Pronounced 'ol-ee-ow', Olhão is a busy modern town with a lovely waterfront and marina.. Its fishing port is the most important in the Eastern Algarve and its fish market is the biggest. It also has many shops, restaurants and a festival devoted entirely to sea food in August.. . Olhão is very Portuguese, very Algarvian and very un-touristic. The pedestrian shopping area winds in cobbled streets through the moorish-looking old town to the waterfront with its markets (fruit, veg, meat, deli as well as fish), with its cafe's, parks and sparkling views out over the Ria Formosa lagoons. From the pier, you can take boats to the island villages and beaches of Armona, Culatra and Farol - all great day trips. The official visitor centre for the Ria Formosa nature reserve is just outside Olhão. Its worth a visit to see the restored tidal mill (of which there were once many in the Ria Formosa),and the bird life.
During the Sea Food festival in August, half of the water front gardens are closed off and turned into a massive gastronomic and entertainment delight. The sea food is plentiful and excellent, the entertainment is top class and the organisation great. Its a hugely popular event and deservedly so. Don´t miss it if you are here at the time.
Horse riding, fishing and watersports are available everywhere in the Algarve but mainly in the bigger resorts. The nearest to Quelfes would be Faro and Villamoura. There are a selection of lovely restaurants in the town nearby, Olhao, as well as one in Quelfes itself.

We stayed at the villa for two weeks in August. We went as two families who are still really good friends!!!
We pulled up outside and decided we must have the wrong place as it was a castle! It is very clean and very well equipped. It is obviously a well loved, lived in family holiday home.The beds were very comfy and the air con a must in August.
The pool was an amazing 32 degrees and it was lovely to swim in the evening with the lights on. A car is a must.
We fished from a boat (and shopped at the markets!) for our supper. Seafood, and fresh fruit and veg are a foodies dream. We all love to shop and cook and spend time together so was our ideal holiday. Loads of games and books so you won't need to take any.
We had such an amazing time we have booked to go back next year already.
Thankyou Noel and Sue we are counting down the days!

This is the second time we have stayed in this villa but in between times the owners have added air con and a third bedroom with an en suite. The extra room has been added really well but fits in with the existing style of the property so you'd think it was always like this. The villa is really well equipped with washing machine, dishwasher, sat TV and DVD's/books galore. It easily sleeps 7 and with 3 bathrooms you have plenty of space. There is also a travel cot and I think the ling room has a bed settee if you needed it. The pool is great and perfect for smaller children as it's not that long but it is around 6ft deep at one end so they need to be supervised. There is also a barbecue which we used a lot. There is not a lot in Quelfes but there are a lot of good restaurants nearby and the large town of Olhao is only 10 minutes away with everything you could possibly need. We took the boat rip from there to the island of Armona and saw terns and even a Chameleon. In fact there are great beaches all along the eastern coast line and just a shore ferry ride from Olhao or Santa Luzia. Tavira is also a nice town and only about 30 mins away. The couple that prepared the vilaa were also very helpful and as well as being well equipped it was spotlessly clean. If you want a quiet break giving total relaxation in a great villa, off resort with a lovely pool I don't think you could do much better. Oh and there were fresh figs for breakfast every day from the tree in the garden. Heaven.
It is always lovely to have a repeat guest, and even better as we had made several improvements such as Aircon and Solar, and built an ensuite bedroom extension which they thought was excellent and fitted in very well.In fact it really does look as if it was always there.For safety we have a lifbuoy and child gate to the pool area as we are aware of childrens curiosity !! but they definitely do need to be supervised. I'm delighted you had such a great holiday and look forward to maybe another visit in the future. Many thanks for such a good review.
