Description

OCEAN VIEW is an algarvewaterfrontapartment with 3 bedrooms, located in Marina Village Olhão. The Village Marina complex includes several apartment blocks with 4 floors. However, since the orientation is north-south, there are only four blocks where the end on the south side is located directly on the boulevard. The first two blocks are part of the 5* Real Marina & Spa hotel. So the number of private apartments with 'super' views is very limited and those all have three bedrooms. Our corner apartment is one of those.

Our luxury apartment is located in the third building on the third floor (2 elevators available), right on the boulevard of Olhão. It is just minutes' walk from the ferries to the beautiful islands Armona and Culatra, where you can really relax on beautiful and quiet beaches. But also only 5 minutes' walk to the lively center and fishing port.

Location description from owner

The Algarve region

The Algarve is famous for its beautiful beaches and has the best climate of mainland Europe. The summer heat of the Mediterranean climate is tempered by the ocean and the influence of the ocean also makes the winter less cold than in the countries surrounding the Mediterranean Sea.
The number of possibilities for excursions and visits to events in the Algarve is so great that you can visit here for years without repetition. There are nice excursions to the many small and large towns along the coast and inland. Day trips can be made to the west coast, Monchique, the Serras, along the Guadiana river and Spain (Sevilla).
There are weekly gypsy market in many places and especially the monthly Sunday markets in Estoi and Moncarapacho are very big and popular.

For bird watching, the Algarve has great possibilities. Especially in the salinas (salt pans) on the coast and in the Ria Formosa Natural Park, one can observe wading birds throughout the year.
The Algarve is one of the richest wild plants areas in Europe. This is mainly due to the large limestone areas. In fact on lime the species richness is much greater than on neutral and acidic soil. The best time to see wild flowers is in March / April when the Algarve is in bloom.

Village Marina

Olhão, a lively fishing port, still retains its original character with a strong Moorish influence. It's the place to be for people who love the real Portugal, with its history and culture, beautiful islands and beaches, nature and interesting hinterland. The 1.3 km long boulevard in Olhão is one of the finest in the Algarve with green parks and playgrounds. Striking are the famous red market halls with daily (except Sunday) fresh fish, vegetables and fruits. On Saturday there is a local product / gypsy market. There are many excellent cafes / coffee shops, shops, bars and restaurants. The choice of restaurants is great and the very fresh fish, clams, squid, crabs and shrimp are excellent.
A good starting point for exploring the town is the tower of Our Lady of the Rosary: the baroque church in the centre.
From here you can see hundreds of typical rooftop terraces on the roofs of the whitewashed cubes from which the city derives its unique view. Stroll through the maze of streets and white houses in the picturesque fishing district.

Reviewed 9 Nov 2016

Excellent accommodation and lovely place. I would revisit both. Apartment fully equipped and tasteful. Town small but lively enough

“Couldn't ask for more”

Reviewed 13 Oct 2016

Firstly, apologies to Sophie and Willem for the late review. My wife and I have holidayed in Olhao many times over the last few years. On this occasion, we visited with our daughter and her boyfriend, my in-laws and our niece. We needed a large apartment that could take us all and when checking out reviews, we decided that this was the apartment for us. We were right. When we arrived, we were greeted with beer, wine and olives. Sophie and Willem are a lovely couple and gave us lots of information about Olhao. The apartment is superb. It is large, very nicely decorated and absolutely immaculate. Sophie and Willem have made sure that everything you could possibly think of is catered for - suncream, deoderant, toothbrushes, tea, coffee (lovely coffee machine), hats, books, and so the list goes on. We had a couple of very minor issues with the TV and air con and all it took was a phone call and they were there to sort things. They even arranged transfers for us to the airport and back to meet our niece who arrived just after we did. We could not have asked for more from a holiday rental and would 100% recommend it. If travelling to Olhao in a large party again, we won't stay anywhere else. Thank you so much.

“wonderful apartment”

Reviewed 20 Sep 2016

This was my 3rd trip to Olhao but the first time staying in this apartment. It was by far the best accommodation and I would not hesitate to book it again. The owners are friendly, helpful, the apartment is immaculate and absolutely everything that you could possibly need is provided. The views from the balcony are superb. Olhao is a wonderful place which we enjoy more each time we visit. We love getting the ferry over to Armona and this trip we did one of the Tuk Tuk wine tasting tours which I would highly recommend. We also took a taxi to Fuseta and had lunch at the beach which was beautiful. Sophie provides lots of information about the local area and things to do which is very helpful. We have had a fabulous time and intend to book the apartment again for our next visit. Thank you Sophie for making us so welcome.

“Fabulous”

Reviewed 15 Jul 2016

Son in law above found us this fabulous apartment for our family holiday this year. The location was stunning with an amazing view from the living room window and of course the balcony Facilities were absolutely excellent we really couldn't have asked for better. Sophie and Willem were in the apartment to welcome us with chilled beer, wine and olives and great chat!! How about that for service. Feel I am repeating what others have said but they really have thought of everything to make for an amazing stay .... even brand new toothbrushes in the bathrooms should you have forgotten to bring one. Suncream, shower gel, toothpste, every flavour of tea you could imagine, coffee, olive oils, salt, spices, bath robes, sun hats, umbrellas. Apartment block is just a few steps away from Emotions Bar which is great for breakfast, lunch and dinner should you not want to venture a little further along to the town. Thankyou both so much. We had a brilliant stay and hopefully will come back some day.

Owner's reply: It was our pleasure. We loved talking with you and getting to know you and your family. Do hope we will see you soon.

“Wonderful apartment, amazing location and brilliant hosts.”

Reviewed 29 Oct 2015

We stayed at this apartment during a golf trip in May. We had stayed in Olhao before and loved it so decided to go back but this time stay at the ocean view. Olhao was as good as before but staying here made the trip even better. Our hosts had drinks waiting for us on arrival and were very welcoming. The apartment is spacious and beautiful and was more than big enough for the four of us. It has everything you would need. Location is also perfect, just a 5 minute walk from the pubs and restaurants but with a brilliant view over the sea. We will definitely stay here again.

“Superb Holiday Letting”

Reviewed 29 Aug 2015

This year we stayed in Sophie's T3 apartment ocean view village Marina and we couldn't have picked a more perfect place. Over the last 7 years we have spent our holidays in Olhao as we love the area, the fantastic restaurants and our chance to experience the real Portugal, and over the years we have stayed in varied accommodation within the Fisherman's Quarter and in Vilas close to Olhao. However staying in Sophie's apartment this year definitely ticked all the boxes for our family as we found it spacious with all modern appliances, beautifully decorated, equipped with everything we needed, very comfortable beds and immaculately clean, but what really toped it off for us was the wonderful views overlooking the Marina, watching the flamingo fly over to the salt marches and of course taking a dip in the roof top pool. We are looking forward to being there next year and have just confirmed our booking, so here's to a glass of something sparkly whilst sitting on the balcony, we cant wait. Thanks again Sophie
