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.

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.

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.

“Outstanding”

Reviewed 10 Nov 2016

Extremely impressed with apartment. Spacious, clean and very well equipped. Nice and quiet around pool area and an added bonus having allocated sunloungers. Ideal location near restaurants and 10 min walk to beach.

“Value for money but not 5 star.”

Reviewed 25 Oct 2016

Spacious apartment with fabulous balcony area. Felt that some furnishings were a little 'tired' - sofas were grubby and stained as were spare pillows. Freezer needed defrosting so was difficult to use and washing machine had a strange smell to it. There are no satellite channels (as detailed)on tv, and the tv is so small and outdated it is not even fit for watching dvd's on. We were there in July and the pool area at times was very busy, we struggled at times for space. Apartment is however in a very good location for the beach and village.

“Will certainly return”

Reviewed 23 Oct 2015

The apartment is all it says it is. Spacious, clean, quiet location,5 minutes from beach, shops and restuarants. 1euro for large beer, 6euro chicken piri piri and chips.lots of different restuarants, friendly people. Beautiful clean beach. Rod and Lesley.

Owner's reply: Thanks for your review Rodney and glad the apartment lived up to expectations. Mick and Brid

“February 2015 at Edificio Somar”

Reviewed 10 Mar 2015

We wanted to escape the English Winter and the Algarve seemed perfect. As we were going to be their for the whole month the location and accommodation needed to be the BEST. Everything you may read about this apartment and its location is spot on and although it was out of season there was no shortage of facilities available. O Manuel Restaurant is a must, try their steak on a stone-a real treat. You cant beat sunbathing in 20 deg on a lovely unspoilt beach just 10 mins walk away so stop thinking about it Just Book It !!!

Owner's reply: Thank you Vince for the review. Really glad you enjoyed your stay. Mick and Brid

“5star spacious apartment within easy walk of all amenities in Olhos D'Agua.”

Reviewed 2 Aug 2014

Mick & Brid provided us with the perfect luxury child friendly apartment for our weeks holiday in Olhos D'Agua. Everything was set up and arranged for us from time of booking. Taxi transfer excellent. Apartment spacious so clean and confortable simply the best we have ever stayed in. Location peaceful yet only few mins walk from the brilliant intermarche (large super market with everything from fish market to bakery). Next door to local cafe taxi rank & tourist office. Few mins walk to beautiful beach. Just loved olhos so perfect for familes to enjoy the authentic algarve without the rush of bigger tourist destinations. Yet only 7euro taxi to old town albufeira or near by villamoura if you fancy a change of scenery. Thanks a mil to the long family. We will return.

“Great Spacious Well Equipped Apartment in Relaxing Resort”

Reviewed 1 Aug 2013

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'”

Reviewed 7 Nov 2012

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”

Reviewed 16 Oct 2012

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!

“Prefect location - Excellent apartment- Seamless Booking”

Reviewed 12 Oct 2012

The whole experience from strat to finish was excellent - The condition and facilities at the apartment where fantastic. Transfer and key pickup where arranged , which where all seamless. Could not recommend it highly enough.

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

Reviewed 12 Oct 2012

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.
