The Algarve region

The beautiful Algarve is famed for its beaches, for the countless shades and tones of its rocks and cliffs. This is a great holiday destination with amazing beaches and in the evning wonderful restaurants, bars and lively discos. Just a few miles inland of Algarve the green of the countryside is dotted with almond, fig, orange and pine trees and decorated chimneys stand out against the ochre of tiled roofs. Bucolic villages invite you to experience a way of life rooted in the tranquillity of nature, to add another dimension to your holidays.


The Algarve is is the Number 1 location for golf and its facilities are famous worldwide. Within 5 mins drive of the apartment there are a choice of two golf courses and 15 mins to all the world famous Oceanico Vilamoura courses.

Olhos d'Agua


The beach and promenade at Olhos de Agua is a 5 minute walk away. The larger Falesia, Maria Luisa and Santa Eulalia beaches are only 5 mins drive.

We can arrange airport transfers for €70 return for up to 4 people and €90 for 5- 8 people.

You are 5 minutes in a taxi from the centre of Albufeira's famous "Strip" and a further 2 miles to the charming old town and marina. A 15 minute drive to the east will bring you into the Vilamoura marina area.

There is a large supermarket at the bottom of the drive 1 min walk away. Bus stop and taxi ranks are just beside the apartment block.

Bars and quality restaurants are in abundance in the area and are 2 mins walk away. There is a post office and bank nearby.

Watersports are available at the beaches and there is a selection of Waterparks to choose from including the world famous ZooMarine where you can swim with the dolphins. This is an excellent day out for all the family both adults and children.

The area is great for fishing and local boats organise both pleasure and fishing trips.

The local nightlife scene is relaxed and family oriented with shows in all the local hotels including the Oceanus only 2 minutes walk away. The nightlife is much livlier in nearby Albufeira which is only 5 minutes in a taxi.

"Great Spacious Well Equipped Apartment in Relaxing Resort"

I can not fault this apartment, travelled with friend and our two respective boys aged 7 and 3, so the potential for full scale warfare was there... Booked transfer through owners and were met at airport and delivered straight into the apartment by the informative driver who showed us all the amenities such as supermarket, directions to beach etc... driver had keys and showed us how air-conditioning, electronic shutters worked and left us to it. Apt had hair dryer, bottle opener - all the essentials ;-) Children were very happy to find the beach toys in garage, and the little toys in sitting room, DVDs, and kids channels allowed some down time for the children (and adults) post pool and beach and before going out to one of the many delicious restaurants in the evening. Olas D'Agua was described as quiet enough resort but still busy enough that there is plenty to look at and a good holiday vibe going on. The pool at the apartment is quite deep but the older boy loved it while the younger one loved the beach, which is shallow for a long enough way out to allow parents to relax somewhat while kids run in and out of waves. The only thing I could fault with the apartment was I found the mattress hard but this is a personal preference and due to a back complaint that is aggravated by same, and from reading other reviews of Portuguese apartments and hotels it seems that hard mattresses are a common complaint from tourists so Irish people must just be used to different mattress types. Overall the apartment was spacious, clean, beautifully finished, well equipped, within easy access to beach, shops, restaurants, with bus stop and taxi rank at end of row. Owners left v. informative home made booklet with details of all tourist points which was v. helpful. Would recommend to families and friends looking for nice holiday but not to clubbers, or hens... Would book this apartment again without hesitation! Zoo marine worth visit for all and Aqua splash for more adventurous...

"'Awesome Birthday Present'"

We took our grandaughter for a weeks holiday as her 10th birthday present. Couldn't find an ideal venue with any of the large travel companies, who all wanted to charge me for 2 individual apartments, since I wanted 2 bedrooms, So we booked the apartment and flights seperately. Everything was great. The location and the apartment itself was ideal. Very close to the beach, once we found the shortcut, with a bakery, supermarket and excellent restaurant just round the corner. Main bus route to Albufiera or Vilamoura at the end of the road. Lovely pool and very well appointed apartment. Just remember that to pay anyone in Southern Ireland it needs to be in Euros, which isn't a problem, but came as a surprise.

"A place to come back to"

We were very impressed upon arriva and chilled out straight away which was great when a small child is with you!. Brid and Mick and their family have ensured that your stay is a comfortable one and practically everything that you would want in a place to stay and more. For example plenty of towels in the bedrooms and both bathrooms, all the kitchen appliances you would want or need,a good info pack, comfortable beds that you can get a good night's sleep and childrens dvds, toys, books, buckets and spades and cbeebies!!!
We would be of the opinion that not only is this apartment suitable for a family but it has everything that a couple or other groups would want in their accomadation.
It was nice having breakfast either at the dining table or outside on the terrace although when we didn't eat at the numerous restaurants close by it was lovely eating outside on the terrace with the tipple of your choice!

"A brilliant place to stay - ideal for a family break away"

This apartment is one of the best i have ever stayed in - it is so clean and modern and very well kitted out - especially going there with two small kids. It is very central and only a short stroll to shops and restaurants. I cannot wait to go back next year.

"We keep going back"

This apartment is situated in a beautiful, safe and private complex.
We have stayed three times and each time with our three children.
We thoroughly enjoy our stay and can not wait to get back again to enjoy all that
The area has to offer. The apartment itself is very well equipped and homely, a real Jem.
