The living room also has a balcony overlooking the lagoon from where you can see the most important fishing port and harbour.

All rooms including the kitchen have air conditioning.

About Domingos Marques

I live in Canada with my wife Manuela, but we both were born in Portugal and love to spend most of our holidays where our roots are.

Domingos Marques purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Domingos Marques chose Algarve Region

We love the mild climate and sun of Algarve but chose this eastern part town of Olhão because of the protective status of Ria Formosa which has been more sensitive in its development of tourism, allowing the natural wonder of nature to be preserved.

What makes this apartment unique

The variety of choices available to our guests, whether you like peace and quite or enjoy a more active holiday.

You can walk to the ferry which will take you to one of the 3 islands with pristine sandy beaches or drive to Tavira (18kms) for a game of golf.

We provide beach towels and umbrellas to travel light and make the most of this undiscovered part of Algarve!

Perfect beach getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Domingos apartment for 3 nights and it was perfect ... 2 mins walk from the wharf where the ferries leave for all the islands (go to Farol!) and the same from the street with all the restaurants and the food market. So perfectly located.

The apartment itself is really spacious, was clean and well catered for.

Domingos was really helpful in providing some advice before we came and his agent who we met on arrival was waiting for us and also very helpful.

I can't fault it, everything was great. Thanks!
