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.

Apartment is very nice with a great big balcony which is safe for toddlers too !!. in a great location for restaurants, supermarkets and a few shops just a couple of minutes walk. beach is only five minutes walk down a steep hill, or a bit longer taking the easier route..All of my party had a fabulous holiday, and would not hesitate to book this lovely apartment again.

I have stayed in this apartment twice over the last 2 years and I would happily recommend it to any person going on holidays. It is located in the heart of the town of Olhos De Agua with lots of nice shops and restaurants within 2 minute walk. The large apartment is fully kitted out with all you need for your stay.

“Spacious, everything at hand, beautiful beach close”

Although it was Dec (we stayed until the end of March), the weather was perfect this winter in the Algarve. (but bad for farmers; too dry). The Edificio Somar where Mick & Brid's apartment is in Olhos d'Agua, was ideal for us, having two bedrooms plus two sofa beds in the front room as we had visitors coming and going. The village is walking distance to all amentities, tons of restaurants and a big supermarket. The local cafe is friendly and with good prices for lunch. There are two pharmacies within 5 minutes walk as well as a several travel agents for local and Spanish excurisons as well as car hire. The popular bar & restaurant area of Oura beach is next door (5 minutes in car) on the edge of Albufeira, just far enough. More importantly, the lovely secluded beaches of the area. Fabulous cliffs, and golden sand. Too cold to swim in the winter, but still lovely to stroll and warm enough to play on. The apartment was modern, very big, and well-equipped, we were not short of anything, and everything was new and worked well (tv/satellite/dvd/video and all necessary appliances). Lots of dishes and glasses. Each room had a combination heater-cooler which was great in winter to knock the chill off the evenings. The two bathrooms were very handy, one with bath/shower, the other with a shower stall. The central vac made cleaning simple and fast, and the stone floors easy to clean as well. The big terrace was great all day, with a southern exposure. Might be hot in summer so watch out! Drawbacks: In winter the building is cold, especially with stone floors. The heating was essential. There were too few power outlets in the building, especially the kitchen (strange feature to overlook in a kitchen) so one was always struggling with swapping plugs. Lighting in the kitchen could have been better since we always seemed to be standing in our own light trying to prepare meals. The shower was a bit cramped for larger people. In winter you'll find the back bedroom extremely dark, but this will be an advantage in summer to keep cool. These are principally design issues and nothing to do with the upkeep or furnishings. There were only a few things on the minus side, easily outweighted by the pluses! :) Mick and Brid were ever helpful and kind enough to let us stay long-term. Great holiday.

We had a fantastic time on this holiday. Great apt. Clean and comfy. All mod cons.Very organised owners. Lovely pool and the beach is a 10 min walk (15 min back up the hill). We had 3 small kids who had a great time. Our first holiday abroad with them and thankfully everything went well! We went in June so it wasn't too hot.

I stayed in this Apartment on three occasions-2 Weeks in May 2007 +1 Week in October 2010 with my husband and a Week in May 2011 with four friends. I have stayed in many apartments over many years but i would have to say this apartment has been the best iv'e experienced in every way.Its in a delightful location with so many good restaurants within a few mins walk with lovely food vey good value also several really nice coffee shops nearby. The Apartment itself was so lovely spacious bright and so well equiped in every way-everything one would need for luxury holiday accommodation is provided we wanted for nothing..Very peaceful at night in such a nice location with no traffic noise. Being such a big apartment with the two bathroons and the two seperate large sliding doors on to the large balcony one from the living room and one from the main bedroom made it an ideal apartment for the group of five friends the extra large accomodation was a real plus we felt. I would highly recommend this aparrtment to couples,a family or group of friends -it would be hard to find better.

“Highly Recommended”

We have been to Olhos d'agua 6 times now and stayed in this apartment twice now, we would not stay anywhere else in the future. It has everything you need and more and feels like your own home when you are there! Location great, spotlessly clean, air con is fantastic and apartment is very roomy.
