The Algarve / East Algarve region
The Algarve is famous for its sunshine and its beaches. The climate is very nice all year round and allows for a relaxing sunny holiday, even in winter as the temperatures does not fall below 0 degrees.
The Algarve is become increasingly popular for its Mediterranean climate and its South facing coastline which offers amazing visits of limestone caves and grottoes.
There are many villages to visit such as Albufeira, Lagos, Tavira and Vilamoura.
The Olhao area
The location although secluded is within 5 minutes drive to the very pleasant Portuguese fishing town (with its daily fish market) of Olhao and also Moncarapacho with its historic village square. It is still very convenient for all local amenities, supermarkets and some of the best fish restaurants in the Algarve. The lovely historic town of Tavira is only a 20 minute drive away.
The beautiful beaches of Ria Formosa can be reached from a short ferry ride at the port of Olhao a must for all beach lovers.
As expected, golf is predominant in the Algarve and Quinta d'Helvete is perfectly situated to capitalise on some of the best courses around.
Quite simply, Quinta d'Helvete is the perfect location for a relaxing, carefree peaceful holiday.

This villa was very nice and clean had every thing you could wish for and we are all very pleased that as a group of 6 adults and 8 children there was still loads of room to chill away from the smaller children and enjoy our own space, would really consider going to this villa again even the fact that you are a bit of a drive away from the town is a big bonus as no noise, which i must add is what most people want from there holiday..
