Cool owners and a very spacious historic house
We stayed for 6 weeks around February 2019 and Fabienne, HP & family were really great owners - very helpful but chilled-out too.
This is a restored and updated historic house with two generous outside spaces and wonderful views over the cubist roof-tops of the historic quarter of Olhao. We had everything we needed for a really comfortable stay - the pictures don't do justice to the size of the house! It has very high ceilings, great period furniture & lighting in the bedrooms, a good kitchen, comfy beds & a beautiful container-grown garden planted with succulents, agaves & architectural planting. Tables that comfortably seat 6 are both inside and out in the garden, along with loungers & shade equipment. All in, it's a really well-equipped property with a good mix of modern-comfort and historic detail.
Noise from the street and cafe downstairs never bothered us. It's a gentle 3 minute stroll to the two fantastic food markets plus ferries to the islands, cafes, shops, supermarket, bakery, bars & restaurants - even the post office is less than 5 mins away. The location is perfect for exploring the old town and, with a car, you can be on your way out of town within 5 mins. Highly recommended!
Thank you so much for your commentary, it's very kind of you to have take time to give your point of view.HP & my parents in law were very pleased to meet you.As I heard you bought a house in Olhao as well , we will be neighbours soon :)
More than met my expectations. The Photos don't lie.
This is a fabulous property in the heart of old Olhão which has so much to offer and all in walking distance.
The house is just beautiful and has everything one could need for a self catering holiday. The ambience and attention to details is superb. I would thoroughly recommend renting this as you have everything at your door. The enormous daily fish and produce markets just down the old pedestrian path has a myriad of delicacies you can take home to cook, or you can eat out very reasonably, at a plethora of really excellent restaurants and all in walking distance. If you love to explore, discover little alleys, architecture crying out for help, street art, nature reserves, unspoilt islands than this is the place to go and the house to stay in. Fabienne was extremely helpful as was her husband.
Great Stay in the Centre of Olhao
We had three guests in total; however, this space could easily accommodate more people. Great space both interior and exterior. Light and fresh decor with a great mix of modern furnishings within a traditional home. Well stocked kitchen including anything you could want for a self catering stay. This house has two great sized bathrooms one of which is separated. A bathroom with a shower room next door and the other with a bathroom and shower. There is no bath in the property which was absolutely fine for us as it was hot when we went. The lounge and kitchen are adjoined and both have access onto the outside space. There are two downsides to this property, however, minimal. There are no sunloungers for sunbathing which would be fantastic on the upper terrace as its very large and would get the sun for most of the day. Also in the mornings, early afternoons there is a coffee shop directly below which can be quite noisy. The street and surrounding area is quiet though and no noise at night which was great and you are very central. Overall we had a fantastic stay and would highly recommend. We fell in love with Olhao and hope to return soon.
Simplement idéal !
Un logement à la hauteur du charme de la ville d’Olhão. Spacieux, magnifiquement décoré, idéalement placé, il participe de cette douceur de vivre que dégagent Olhão en général et le quartier ancien en particulier. On quitte les deux avec beaucoup de regret !
Wunderbare Wohnung im Herzen der Altstadt
Sehr schöne, gut ausgestattete und saubere Wohnung in der Altstadt von Olhao.
Was man wissen muß: Die Doppelbetten sind für große Menschen recht klein (140x190).
Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt sehr genossen. Die Wohnung ist in der Nacht sehr ruhig und die Markthallen und Cafes in direkter Nähe. Ein Auto braucht man hier nicht!
Un très bon séjour à Olhao dans cette agréable maison
La Maison est Parfaitement bien située, très fonctionnelle, spacieuse, et décorée avec Goût. Tout est fait pour que les hôtes soient à leur aise, comme chez eux !
La belle terrasse est très agréable aussi. Les propriétaires sont très disponibles et agréables. Pour les futurs occupants, retenez cette adresse !
