About Mrs Cailleux
We are a French-Portuguese family with 3 children who live in Paris. We spend our holidays for 15 years in the center of Algarve. We love everything of the Algarve : the climate summer and winter alike, the gastronomy, the sympathy of the portugueses, the beautiful fine sand beaches, the paths along the coast, the freshness of the Serra de Monchique and the medieval ferias of Silves, the wild islands which surround the lagoon da Ria Formosa, the desert of the cape St Vincent, the history of Sagres, the boat trips... The children like quite particularly the aquatic parks, the Zoo Marine, the circuit of kart of Almancil... Finally, we appreciate just as much to have within reach of hands the comfort and the modern infrastructures of an European country. Because we really like very much Algarve, we intend even to move there one day...
Mrs Cailleux purchased this Apartment in 2012
Why Mrs Cailleux chose
After spending holidays in central Algarve for 15 years, we decided to buy a property. We chose this residence because the location is exceptional and it is one of the last new modern building having been built in sea front. We fell under the fisherman's village of Olhos d’Agua and its eponym beach who knew how to keep their traditional character. The name ' Olhos d' Agua ' means ' eyes of water ', it comes from the fresh water springs that rise in the beach. When you leave the building, you are on a pedestrian street which allows you a direct access to the beach. It offers you numerous snack bars, ice-cream bars and restaurants where you can have an outdoor drink in the terrace to contemplate the horizon. The pedestrian street continues on a walk lined with palm trees along the beach to arrive at the huts of traditional fishermen with lovely colored boats on the banister of launch. You do not have more than to take advantage of grilled sardines or seafood platter to the restaurant ' La Cigale ' or simply a ' bica ' (strong coffee). If you like sport, in low tide you can walk (or run) on the fine sand during almost 7 km until famous Vilamoura, its casino and its marina. If you love marine life, you can observe between tides : limpets, topshells, buckshot barnacles, sea anemones and brightly coloured seaweed. The jagged rock formations give rise to isolated group of rocks, undercutting, archess, cavities and small sheltered coves, especially at the western end of the beach. If you play golf, you can reach in 10 min on foot Balaia Golf, course of 9 holes. Approximately 18 golf, on 36 that offers Algarve, are situated unless 20 min by car. If you are fond of night parties, Albufeira is accessible unless 5 min by car or by the local bus 'EVA' nearby.
What makes this Apartment unique
Olhos d’Agua offers in the same time the peace and the charm of an old fishermen's village and the proximity of all the urban conveniences. Its central location in Algarve allows to have a fast access to the airport (30 km), to visit the west coast until the Cap Sao Vicente (1h10 by A22), or to leave eastward to Castro Marim (50 min). Algarve is a magnificent region which offers a big diversity of landscapes, atmospheres, activities, climate. That is why, everybody can spend of excellent holidays there and compose so its own souvenirs. If you wish, we can recommend you addresses or major sites, according to your tastes. The duplex was carefully fitted out, it is functional and very well equipped. He allows to take advantage completely of holidays all year round: the system of air-conditioning in all the rooms brings some freshness in summer and heating for the colder months of winter.

Perfect apartment for our family holiday to Olhas D’Agua. The apartment itself was spotlessly clean and well equipped with everything we needed. It is in a brilliant location with very close access to the beach and some great family friendly restaurants. We also really enjoyed the pool area, which we often had to ourselves at times.
Bernadette and Vincent were great hosts - we were promptly met on arrival and departure and Bernadette was very good at responding quickly to any questions we had before we arrived.
We would highly recommend this apartment and will definitely hope to return again in the future!
Glorious week in first time visit to Olhos De Agua
Our flight was severly delayed from Bristol, meaning our already late check in was set back to 3am. Bernadette was so kind in being in touch throughout and was not annoyed in any way. The accomodation was perfect for us, a group of 7. The pool area was clean and the pool has magnificant views of the beach. We found out there are toilets and showers near the pool too which was handy after check out. The local restaurants are lovely although we were disappointed with Manzo steak house. The ice creams in the Acqua below the appartment were very popular. Bernadette was also kind enough to hold our lugguage until around 3pm on our departure day, meaning we could relax by the pool a little longer before our journey home. Would highly recommend this accomodation to anyone seeking a quiet, civilized family getaway.
The location of the apartments was fantastic. A few steps away from the lovely Olhos d’Agua beach and next to the great local restaurants. You must visit Fratelli’s. Always beautiful food & brilliant service! Lovely apartment!
These apartments are ideally suited to a relaxing holiday, only steps to the beach and surrounding restaurants, reasonably well equipped.
The complex is in need of some TLC, pool area shabby with only a few sunbeds all of which were broken, small pool had 12 inches of dirty water in it. Weeds in path ways and white walls covered in dirty brown streaks.
Makes you feel sorry for the owners who kept the apartments so nice.
Met at the apartment, 2 sets of keys, parking space, WiFi and fantastic beach views from the top patio area.
We have stayed in 2 different apartments here and is our go to place when visiting Portugal.
Lovely apartment with sea views and the beach cafes etc just outside the door
In the centre of this village definitely book again x
Many thanks for your review. You will be welcome at anytime. Regards
A very spacious, well equipped and clean apartment, so convenient for the beach and restaurants.
We had a fabulous relaxing time and hope to return again soon.
Thank you Robert for your review. You are welcome to stay again as often you like. See you soon.
Ideally localizated, 20 m from the beach, in the peace into a pedestrian street where you will find bars, restaurants, snacks, supermarkets, pharmacy, all the conveniences are directly accessible on foot.
By car, you have the choice among numerous golf, aquatic parks, attractions and places of interest. If you like the peace, we recommend you strolls in the region of Monchique or in the islands of Faro
