Een prachtig appartement! Van alle gemakken voorzien. 3 dagen is inderdaad te kort. Bedankt. Karin & Daan, September 2016
Sophie & Wim, What a superb apartment. Absolute quality. You've both thought of everything. Great welcome. Olhão is a wonderful place. We are so sad we could only stay for 3 nights.

Alles Gute, Simone und Luc aus der Schweiz. August 2016
Wow! What a great apartment. Wim & Sophie - Thank you for the warm welcome. Olhão is a lovely little town with so much going on, some great restaurants and a fantastic fish market.

Liebe Sophie, Lieber Wim, wir hatten eine sehr, sehr, sehr schöne Zeit in Olhão in eurem schönen Appartement!! Es war so toll eingerichtet, so grosz und hell: Einfach eind Wohlfühloase! Dafür möchten wir uns bei Euch bedanken und auszerdem dafür, dasz Ihr Euch noch so viel Zeit genommen habt, uns alles genau zu erklären. Wir haben hier in Olhão viel erlebt und werden definitiv wieder kommen. Liebe Grüsze, Jasmina & Tizian & Tatjana. Juli 2016.

Another wonderful week in your lovely apartment. We have had a great time once again. Thank you for the lovely gifts, it was very kind. Hopefully we will be back next year. Isla loves her baby and is excited to take "baby Daniel" home to Scotland along with Tiny Time who came back for a visit. All our love, Lisa, Matt, Isla, Daniel, Alan & Liz, Scotland, July 2016.
We have had a wonderful stay in your fantastic apartment. You have thought of everything. Thanks for all your help and we will be back! Graham, Wilma, Jackie, Barry, Alexandra, Blair & Christy. Dundee, Scotland/Sydney, Australia, July 2016.
Geen enkele eerdere locatie (en inmiddels zijn dat er al aardig wat) was zo compleet als deze. Bijzonder schoon en luxe. Helaas zit onze week hier er bijna op en trekken we richting Lissabon. Wij hopen hier spoedig terug te komen, bijzondere ligging en één van de weinige authentieke plaatsen in de Algarve. Ton en Serena, Hoorn, juni 2016.
Another lovely stay - very hot this time but a wonderful time. A boat ride around the islands was good and very informative. Wim and Sophie - so welcoming - more like family with every stay - we will be booking our 4th stay shortly! Anne & Tom, Bedfordshire, U.K. June 2016.
We were both blown away by the space and quality of fittings in apartment Oceanfront: 5*(+). The attention to detail is second to none and our hosts Sophie and Willem made us feel very welcome on our fist visit to Olhão. It won't be our last. Many thanks. Dianne + Allan, Scotland, June 2016.
This has been our first visit to this wonderful apartment, though we have stayed in Sophie + Wim's other 1 bed place 3 times. As ever we have really enjoyed our holiday. We love Olhão and the care and attention Sophie + Wim give to the apartment. Really makes our stay. We will be back next year. Tina & Graham, U.K., June 2016.
Sophie & Wim, thank you so much for your hospitality this week. We have had a wonderful stay in your apartment and hope to return soon in the future. We are really going to miss breakfast on the balcony! Obrigado. James & Kirsteen, Renfrew, Scotland, May 2016.
Wat een geweldige week! Het appartement is af! Alles is er, net als thuis en geweldig ingericht. Sophie en Wim bedankt en ook Liliana, die ons zo vriendelijk verwelkomde! Voor herhaling vatbar. Groeten van Mieke en Rob, mei 2016.
Wij hebben 3 fantastische weken gehad in appartement Oceanfront. Wij voelden ons als God in Olhão. Heel veel dank Sophie en Wim voor alles! Tot volgend jaar. Ab en Tonny Nieuwstraten, mei 2016.
We enjoyed the apartment so much last year that we returned again this year. We were not so lucky with the weather but it didn't spoil our enjoyment. We found lots of new places and we'd love to return a third time. Thanks for your welcome on our arrival. Veronica & Theo, England, May 2016.
Bedankt voor jullie gastvrijheid in jullie geweldige appartement! Het heeft ons aan niets ontbroken. Ook onze kleine man van bijna 2 jaar heeft zich uitstekend vermaakt. O.a. met al het speelgoed en strandmateriaal. De locatie is geweldig. Olhão is erg leuk en er is binnen 30 minuten rijden van alles te doen. Wij gaan zeker nog eens terugkomen en bevelen jullie van harte aan bij onze familie en vrienden. Sabine, Simon & Jack, Hendrik-Ido-Ambacht. April 2016.
Thank you for letting us stay in your excellent apartment. We have had a great week: walking round the salt pans, enjoying the market, boat trips to the island and a train trip to Tavira. The information file was really helpful and you have thought of everything a visitor needs in the apartment. Thank you again. Phil & Pat, Scotland, April 2016.
Thank you for a wonderful apartment in a ideal location, you are both very welcoming and lovely people. Your finishing touches are next to none, i.e. beach towels, umbrellas, shower gels, sun lotions, cleaning and laundry bits, the list goes on. We will be returning hopefully in the near future, and I will recommend your apartment to family and Friends. Thank you once again. Hope to see you soon.  Lorraine & Dave, Bexley, Kent, England, April 2016.
Thank you for a fantastic stay in your wonderful apartment, the days have flown by. We have enjoyed our 2nd stay in Olhão immensely, due to fantastic weather, great food and wine as well. Our 2 boys (2 + 4) have had an absolute ball. We visited the beaches on Armona & Culatra regularly. They were amazing, empty and golden sand as far as the eye could see. We also used the indoor pool at the pool, we bought 6 sessions and used them all. A great way to entertain the kids after the beach. Thanks again, Steve, Jan, Alfie & Fergus, Doune, Scotland, April 2016.
The apartment is everything we had hoped for and more. It is extremely well equipped and decorated with lots of wonderful colourful objects + has everything that we have needed for our stay. Thank you as well for all the wonderful information to help us enjoy our stay in this part of the Algarve. The location + view are excellent + we appreciate all of your work + efforts. Merçi beaucoup!! Rowena & Bruce, Canada, March 2016.
Das Apartement hat uns sehr gefallen, die hübsche arabische Deko! Alles was man für den Alltag benötigt war vorhanden, mehr als wir erwarteten! Morgens machten wir einen frisch gepressten Orangesaft mit der elektrischen Saftpresse. Die Aufsicht auf Faro, die Insel Culatra und die Fischteiche mit den Flamingos und anderen Wasservögeln war einmalig. Die Ecotourism Boat Tour mit «Natura Algarve» ist sehr empfehlenswert. Man erfährt viel über Geschichte und Menschen von Olhão und den Inseln. Der Fishmarkt in der 1. Markthalle war faszinieren für uns
"Landeier". Alles in Allem sehr gelungene Ferien. Danke, Vera & Kurz, Schweiz. April 2016.

Thank you Sophie-Wim for letting us share your wonderful apartment, so homely with all the finishing touches. This has been one of the best holidays we have had on the Algarve. Weather has been a bonus. See you in April. John & Julia, Hampshire, U.K., November 2015.

Dat de Moren hier ooit zijn geweest, is niet enkel merkbaar aan de opvallende bouwstijl in Olhão, maar ook aan binnenhuisinrichting and Lote 11, no. P. Prachtig en ingenieus gedaan, tot in de kleinste details. We hebben er zeer van genoten! Ook van de mooie ontdekkingen op onze uitstapjes, van de heerlijke Cataplana, van het betoverende uitzicht en van het zachte klimaat. Voor herhaling vatbaar, wat ons betreft. Bedankt voor de gastvrijheid. Annemarie & Marc, Leuven, Oktober 2015.

Thank you Sophie and Wim for such a beautiful, well equipped apartment. We certainly took advantage of your facilities this week as the weather has been somewhat indifferent. We had two lovely sunny days during our stay and too advantage of going to the islands. They were wonderful. Found some lovely restaurants (fish). I am sure we will be back but will try to pick a time with better potential for good weather. Thank you once again. Graham & Diana, Chestershire, U.K., October 2015.

We’ve re-acquainted ourselves with ‘old friends’ from our previous stays, enjoyed the wonderful fresh fish, wines and marvellously changing views from our window porch! We will be booking our next stay very soon. Have a good end of the year and see you in 2016. Love Fiona & Chris, October 2015.

Thanks for a lovely week, great weather, enjoyed relaxing and eating out. The flat was all we hoped for and you came to our rescue when we left the key in the back of the door and locked ourselves out. Could have been an expensive mistake!! Quite a few restaurants closed this week and the ferries reduced their services, but we enjoyed Armona and a trip to Barrill beach near Tavira with its train and new cheap car park. Best wishes Howard & Laura, Glasgow, October 2015.

We hebben genoten van onze 10 dagen in Olhão, mede door julie werkelijk schitterende appartement. Het is zo heerlijk relaxed als alles wat je thuis gewend bent aanwezig is. We hebben genoten van het prachtige uitzicht en Theo heeft vele mooie plaatjes kunnen schieten. Lepalaars, flamingo´s, de kleine plevier, de steltkluut enz. staan er perfect op! Al met al zijn we hier nog lang niet uitgekeken en hebben we ons vakantieadres wel gevonden! We gaan dit ontzettend missen in ons koude en regenachtige Nederlandje. Hoop tot gauw. Theo en Tineke Langhorst, september 2015.

Sun, sea, sand, serenity…. Thank you for such a wonderful apartment! Certainly lead to making our stay in Olhão that much more enjoyable. All the best and take care. Janet & Ann, Canada, September 2015.

Une fois de plus mes enfants, mon mari et moi même, nous avons passé de merveilleuses vancances dans votre beau appartement. Ma fille Patricia vous remercie énormement pour toutes vos petites attentions et génerosité envers ma petite Joy. Merçi beaucoup de votre acceuil et de votre gentillesse. Bien cordialement Jacques et Cristine Levieux, Aout 2015.

Cette année encore nous avons passé de merveilleuses vacances. Vous savez acceuiller vos vacanciers pourqu’ils passent d’excellentes vacances et se sentent comme chez eux. C’est la deuxième fois que nous venons et nous espérons pouvoir revenir une prochaine fois. Bien cordialement Yannick & Laetitia, Août 2015.

Where have the last 2 weeks gone, we have had such a wonderful time staying in your apartment in Olhão. We have experienced some beautiful food, sampled many nice wines and enjoyed fantastic views of the Ria Formosa. One of the most informative and fun days was when we went on the Tuk Tuk experience, the team there – Roberto, Ru and Carla – are so friendly and we had such a laugh. We can’t wait to return. Dionne, Simon, Patrick, Dawn & George from England. August 2015.

Well, what a fabulous week we have had in your lovely apartment. Sophie: you were right when you said we did not have to bring anything! The small touches were a great start to the lovely week we had. Your restaurant guidance was pretty spot on too. We could not believe all of the fresh fish in the market. Most of it ended up on my plate! Two ferry trips, lots of wandering around Olhão, a siesta or two – all in all, a fabulous week. Thank you!! We will have no hesitation in recommending Olhão and your apartment to our family and friends. Thank you again! Gareth & Maria, Yorkshire, July 2015.

Our 3rd stay in this apartment and will definitely be back. Sophie + Willem are really welcoming and provide lots of small stuff that really makes a difference! Love this apartment & Olhão. Tina & Graham Haslam, July 2015.


Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this excellent well equipped apartment. Found the trips to the market and beaches first class. Would recommend Armona beach due to short ferry ride, go to the far side which has a small café and sun loungers to hire saves bringing your own. We would definitely return to this apartment and Olhão. JC+Sue, Sommerset, June 2015.

Well, another perfect visit – we said we would come again and we did! Couldn’t fault our stay. Thank you, Sophie and Wim for your hospitality and friendship. Anne & Tom, Barton-le-Clay, U.K. June 2015.

A sua casa é deslumbrante e a vista para a Ria é um sonho. Adoramos o nosso estadia. Esperamos voltar. Obrigado por tudo e as melhores felecidades. Ana Paulo & Nuno Silva, Silves. June 2015.


Excellent apartment, really appreciate the toiletries and all the extra’s not usually provided in an apartment. Loved the atmosphere around the markets especially the outdoor one on Saturday. Canteloupe Café has the best coffee! Take a trip to the beaches, well worth it. Culatra is good but our favourite is train to Fuzeta, then small ferry to Armona (different part of the island going from Olhão). Irene & Paul, Manchester, U.K. June 2015.

Lovely stay in a lovely apartment. Well equipped, comfortable and very tastefully furnished. Thank you for letting us rent your apartment and for your help with everything. Best wishes Lesley, Sue, Kath, Lisa & Theresa, England. June 2015.


We have had the most fabulous holiday! Thank you for Tiny Tim!! The apartment is excellent and your hospitality was great. Thanks again for taking our heavy shopping on the first day! The views are fantastic and we acted on your recommendations and had a lovely day on Farol and went to a few of the restaurants too and they didn’t disappoint. We have had a really good time and hope to return in the future. Thank you again. Matt, Lisa, Isla, Alan & Liz. Glasgow. June 2015.


We had a fabulous time here in Olhão and especially in your beautiful apartment. You both are excellent hosts and the apartment is decorated so beautifully. We now stay anywhere else now that we have found you. We will be back soon I hope. Marina  & James, Co Mayo, Ireland. June 2015.

Very comfortable apartment with ever changing views. The apartment was recommended to us by family and DID NOT disappoint. We hope to return in the not too distant future. Best wishes, Jean & Jim, Dunfermline, Scotland. May 2015.

Had a wonderful stay in this superb apartment. Great weather. Good bird watching from the balcony. Would love to return. Theo & Veronica from Yorkshire U.K. May 2015.


We have had a great time staying in Olhão for our golf trip and your apartment has been one of the highlights. Right from the moment we arrived and you produced 4 cold beers for us you have made us feel really welcome! The apartment has been a fantastic place to base ourselves and we will definitely be back again. Thanks again, Ross, Euan, Neil & Brendan from England and Scotland. May 2015.

Alweer de laatste dag in jullie gezellige appartement. Alles was geweldig geregeld, inclusief af- en ophalen van en naar het vliegveld in Faro. Wij willen jullie bedanken voor jullie geweldige service. Met vriendelijke groet, Jan, Corrie, Erik, Rachel & Kyra, Holland. mei 5, 2015.


Das Appartement ist sehr liebevoll und gemütlich eingerichtet. Wir haven uns alle sehr wohl gefühlt. Eine richtige Wellness Oase. Vielen Dank für die schöne Zeit. PS Wir kommen wieder. Danke. Praxis Sandstede, Mönchengladbach. April 2015.


Your apartment was first class – everything we needed and more! We really appreciated all the comfortable surroundings and of course magnificent views. We’ll be recommending your apartment to all our family and friends. Thank you. Jackie & Derek, U.K. April 2015.


Toujours aussi heureux pour notre 2ème séjour. Amabilité et disponibilité de nos hotes contribuent à notre grand plaisir. L’appartement très agréable, fonctionnel et très bien aménagé. En conclusion séjour très agréable et nous espérons revenir. Jeanne Marie et Jean Pierre, Biaritz, Avril 2015.


Well our few days here in Olhão have flown by. Your lovely home has made us feel very welcome with the perfect views and comfortable beds. We have had some lovely trips out – one to Farol on the boat and yesterday wandering around the local buying fresh fruit for our lunch. Thank you, Liz, Simon, Lewis and Leonie, April 2015.



Wat hebben we genoten in jullie mooie appartement. Het weer was de eerste 2 weken prachtig en daarna wat wisselvallig. Toch hebben we dagelijks kunnen genieten van prachtige wandelingen in de omgeving. De restaurantjes – op loopafstand – waren eigenlijk allemaal prima; daarom hebben we maar een enkele keer van de keuken gebruik gemaakt. Wij voelden ons dagelijks “thuis-komen” in jullie woning. Dank dat wij de gelegenheid hebben gekregen om een maand te verblijven. Groetjes. Els & John, De Bilt, maart 2015.



Sophie is the perfect host! From the outset the communication was fantastic; accommodating the variety of needs the guests had; offering to arrange airport transfers & making extending the stay simple. The accommodation was used for business purposes, as the organiser I cannot fault Sophie’s attention to detail to make sure that everything was as it should be for the three ladies who stayed. The apartment was simply perfect for what was required in terms of space & location. Sophie personally met the guests and explained everything well; she made it clear that she was on-hand to answer any questions and help with anything throughout the stay. A lovely personal touch was a note from Sophie to each of the ladies; something so simple yet thoughtful; a fab touch! The team will be looking to visit again next year, all being well & there would be nowhere else they’d rather stay! Thanks Sophie for everything. …… Nikki B. Simply lovely, the location, apartment, facilities were all great. Would definitely recommend. …… Gemma S. The apartment was lovely. Really nicely decorated, very clean and felt really homely. Location was perfect. Lovely view of the marina from every room, 5 minute walk to restaurants and bars. Would definitely love to stay here again. …… Sarah B. Sophie and her husband were so nice and friendly. Would definitely recommend! Nikki, Gemma and Sarah October 2014.



We moeten jullie “huisje” al weer verlaten, het is niet anders. En van alle adresjes de afgelopen jaren is dit toch wel de winnaar van de wedstrijd “waar stuur ik mijn vrienden heen”. Heerlijk Sophie en Wim: “what a view”, “what a location” en dat jullie huis wel heel compleet is, een 10 dus. Eerst komt: wat een uitzicht, wat een ruimte, etc. etc. etc. en ook nog zeer compleet. Gerard en Nelleke, oktober 2014.


We have had a lovely week in Olhão and enjoyed our stay in this beautiful well equipped apartment. Big thank you for the toys you left for Matthew. He has played with them all week. Hopefully we will return soon. Thank you. Fiona, Stephen and Matthew, October 2014.



Thank you so much for your kindness to us on our trip with our elderly mother during our stay. The apartment is beautiful, the décor is fabulous, the attention to detail is second to none. Being met by you both, the lovely very welcome tea + cakes when we arrived, all the things provided toothbrushes-toothpaste-dental floss! We cannot recommend you enough and will be recommending you to all our friends and family. Thank you so much for everything. Marina, Breda and Sarah, Ireland, October 2014.

Your apartment is lovely, very tastefully decorated. We could have spent our whole time on the balcony watching the tide rise & fall and the world go by. Thank you for your assistance with taxis etc. Paul & Carolyn, Ongar/Essex, September 2014.

We hebben genoten van jullie goed geëquipeerde en gezellig appartement. Door de mooie ligging was hier the sky the limit! Dirk & Rhie, Brigitte & Filips, Eekeren/België, September 2014.




Apartment waterfront Olhão is the most beautiful well equipped apartment one could ever wish to stay in. Sophie and Willem the owners are both lovely people and were so helpful to us on our arrival. The town and restaurants are just a short stroll away as is the ferry where you can go island hopping or go to the beach. Sophie has thought of everything from toiletries to a shopping trolley. The view from the apartment was beautiful and a perfect place to sit at the end of the day with a glass of wine. Will definitely be going back to this romantic haven. Liam & Tina, Leitrim/Ireland, September 2014.

The apartment was lovely. Very tastefully and fully furnished. All facilities you need including sandwich boxes and cool box. Very convenient for the town, markets and train. We would definitely recommend. Gill & Alan, Great Bromley, September 2014.

Nous avons pass’e de merveilleuses vacances à Olhão et nous garderons un excellent souvenir de cette location. Votre appartement est décoré ave goût, confortable et il ne manque absolutement rien car tout est fourni. Bref, vous avez pensé à tout pourque vos vacanciers se sentent à l’aise, jusqu’aux marques d’attention pour la pettite fille qui nous accompagnait. Les repas sur la terrasse avec la superbe vue sur la Ria Formosa nous manqueront. Merci pour votre accueil et votre entillesse. En espérant pouvoir revenir. Latitia & Yannick, Tony & Patricia & Joy, Jacques & Cristina, Bourge la Reine/France, Septembre 2014.


Mooi en sfeervol ingericht appartement. Zeer compleet en voorzien van alle gemakken en zelf iets meer dan dat. Vanaf het balkon schitterend uitzicht op de lagunes met de flamingo's. Gastvrije en vriendelijke Wim en Sophie ontvangen je met een lekker drankje en kunnen je alles over de Algarve vertellen. Geweldig appartement om voor langere tijd ( b.v. overwinteren) te verblijven. Een echte aanrader. Marjon &Fried, Maarssen, augustus 2014.

Alle positieve reacties zoals hieronder beschreven zijn waar. Kan er gewoon niets meer aan toe voegen dan bedankt Sophie en Wim, zelfs mijn zoon vond het ook geweldig ..en dat voor een puber. Hopelijk tot ziens Alida en Thimo, Den Haag, augustus 2014.

We really enjoyed our stay in your lovely apartment, and the opportunity it gave us to explore the Algarve. After flamingo spotting, beaches, shopping at the local markets or enjoying some great restaurants, the balcony was the perfect place to enjoy a cold beer and compare photos. Obrigado!  Greg & Lisa, Sam, Richard & Robyn, Melbourne/Australia, July 2014.

Wat een smaakvol ingericht appartement en alles is er, onze complimenten! Helaas konden we hier maar 4 dagen zijn, maar we komen zeker terug. Het uitzicht is prachtig en de omgeving ook.  Ronald, Frieda, Frank & Ilse, Halfwerk, Coevorden, juli 2014.

A really well equipped, clean home from home. Sophie has thought of everything! Lovely views across the salt pans and over to the mountains. A quiet area in easy reach of the supermarkets and the centre of town, and its fantastic market and ferry across to the beaches. Hosts could not have been more helpful. Excellent value for money. Will be returning. Chris & Fiona, Leicester, July 2014.

Thank you so much for allowing us to share your lovely apartment. Our first venture staying in a privately owned apartment has turned out to be an unqualified success and we will recommend you to our family and friends when we return to Bedfordshire in the U.K.. Antoinet & Tom, Barton-le-Clay, July 2014.

Ocean View is een prachtig, ruim appartement met werkelijk alles erop en eraan, en het is met veel smaak ingericht. Je hebt een geweldig uitzicht op de eilandjes voor de kust en de jachthaven.
Het ligt op loopafstand van restaurantjes, veerboten naar de eilandjes (strand) en het centrum van Olhão. Olhão is een leuk authentiek stadje met niet al te veel toerisme op ongeveer 15 km vanaf de luchthaven Faro. Er is een vissershaven en de verse vis wordt verkocht in de gezellige markthallen en staat in de meest restaurants op de menukaart. De eigenaren Sophie en Wim zijn zeer vriendelijke en gastvrij. Omdat ze in de buurt wonen helpen ze graag bij eventuele vragen/problemen. Het is voor mij de eerste keer in Ocean View (T3) maar ik/wij zijn al 2 keer eerder in Waterfont (T1) geweest en dit is zeker niet de laatste keer in een van beide appartementen. Sophie en Wim alweer bedankt en graag tot volgend jaar!  
Marjo, juni 2014.

Just returned home from apartment Ocean View in Olhão. It was fantastic. Décor and cleanliness was first class. The view was amazing, looking out over to Farol island. Very well appointed with everything you would need and more. Barbara, Galston/Scotland, June 2014.


Het sfeervolle appartement is ruim, schoon en compleet ingericht. Het appartement heeft een ruim terras met uitzicht over het natuurgebied. Op loopafstand zijn er restaurantjes waar je heerlijk en betaalbaar kunt eten. De eigenaren van het appartement zijn vriendelijk en gastvrij die voor je klaar staan mochten er problemen/vragen zijn. Handig vonden wij de informatiemap met waar de stranden zijn en om mooie uitstapjes te maken in het nog niet zo toeristische gebied van de Algarve. Zeker een plek om terug te komen. Lydia & Wim, Hoenderloo, juni 2014.

It was our pleasure to stay in your apartment. Definitely the best we have stayed in, on our travels through Portugal and Spain.  Olive, Basingstoke, May 2014.

Het appartementengebouw is op korte afstand gelegen van het centrum van Olhão met zijn dagelijkse groente en vismarkt. Restaurants in overvloed. De accomodatie is tip top ingericht en wordt goed onderhouden en schoongemaakt. Bij aankomst hoef je niet meteen naar een winkel want de basis etenswaren en drankjes zijn er. Het verkeersgeluid van de openbare weg is vanaf het balkon soms nadrukkelijk aanwezig. Prima uitzicht op de zee en de zoutpannen.
Eddy & Rita, Apeldoorn, april 2014.

We have had wonderful weeks her in your apartment in Olhão. The apartment is delightful and the view from here is fantastic – changing every day. A special thanks for both of you for helping us when Ase Irene had to go to the dentist, and for the visit to your wonderful home. Ase Irene & Jorgen, Linda, Marianne, Terje, Guri and Reijo, April 2014.

Stayed in Waterfront for 5 days end Nov. Over the last 5 years we have stayed in apartments all over Europe on at least 20 occasions and this rates as the best apartment we have stayed in. It had everything you could want. Very friendly and efficient owners, excellent location. The views of the sun setting from the balcony were fantastic as were the choice and quality of the many restaurants within 10-15 minutes stroll. I would recommend it to my friends and also we would return to Olhão and to this apartment again. Patsy, Dublin/Ireland, November 2013.

Bij binnenkomst tref je een volledig ingericht en zeer goed verzorgd appartement aan. Alles is aanwezig, van tandenborstel tot koffie, van strandlaken tot badjas en wordt waar nodig ook aangevuld. Het bed is erg goed, wat in onze ervaring zeker niet overal is. Vanaf het prachtige ruime balkon kun je de zonsondergang zien. Je kijkt vanaf dit balkon op de salina's waar de watervogels te bewonderen zijn. Als je dit appartement boekt, zul je daar geen spijt van krijgen. Mark & Jeanine, september 2013.

O apartamento é lindo e muito confortavel. Tem uma vista sem comparaçao. Catia, Agosto 2013.

Het appartement is schitterend een mooi uitzicht met een riant terras. Alles wat je ook maar nodig hebt is aanwezig. De keuken is overcompleet met magnetron, afwasmachine, wasmachine, oven, broodrooster, koffiezetapparaat je kunt het zo gek niet bedenken of het is er wel. Handdoeken, badlakens, badjassen alles is er, zelfs parasols. Lekker fris en schoon. Dit is de tweede keer dat we hier zijn geweest en als het budget het toelaat gaan we zeker nog een keer. Sophie en Wim gewoon geweldig .......BEDANKT........
Anja & Gert, Hans & Yvonne, augustus 2013.

Thank you for a great holiday apartment. We could not wish for a nicer or more well equipped place to stay. You have made the apartment very welcoming and meeting you both was the icing on the cake, to quote an old English saying. Jean, Boreham, August 2013.

Vanuit dit mooie appartement zijn de verschillende prachtige stranden erg goed te bereiken. Buitens huis eten is geen probleem door de diversiteit van de restaurantjes. André & Thea, augustus 2013.

Wit hatten 2 wunderschöne Wochen bei euch im Appartement. Wir haben uns alle drie gleich zu Hause gefühlt. Es war wirklich alles da. Katja,  Johan & Annika, Maasdam, Juli 2013.

Just returned from a wonderful stay in fabulous Ocean View Apartment. Sophie & Wim very friendly & informative. Looking forward to returning in the future. John & Mandy, Balgeddie/Scotland, July 2013.

Wij hebben ervaren, dat de beschrijving en de foto's van het appartement T1, voor 100% voldoen aan wat er staat op de site. Het was voor ons geweldig fijn om in jullie appartement te kunnen verblijven!! Top. Arie & Wil, Leiderdorp, juni 2013.

Het appartement is prachtig ingericht, smaakvol en praktisch. Je voelt je er onmiddellijk thuis ! Het uitzicht op het natuurgebied is hemels. Werkelijk alles is aanwezig en alles kraaknet. Wim en Sophie doen er alles aan om je een zorgeloze vakantie te bezorgen. Een absolute aanrader !
Ignace & Caroline, Sint Kruis/België, juni 2013.

This apartment is in a fantastic location with wonderful panoramic views. It is immaculate and furnished to a very high standard. The owners were there to greet us and explain everything. It has all the usual facilities plus unexpected extras such as bathrobes, shampoo, toothbrushes, tea, coffee, washing powder..... plus a bottle of wine to welcome us and a very comprehensive pack of information. Close to lots of restaurants and bars and a really good market as well as supermarkets. We liked it so much we're booking again for next year! Tina & Graham, Whitby, June 2013.

Mogen we jullie hartelijk bedanken voor jullie goede zorgen tijdens ons verblijf in jullie heerlijke appartement. We zijn heerlijk uitgerust en bruin! Namens ons drieën hoop ik dat we in de toekomst ooit weer eens welkom mogen zijn ?? Dikke knuffel en kusjes van Diana, Henk en Chloë, mei 2013.

We stayed in this apartment in mid April for one week. It is a fabulous apartment with all mod cons and stunning views .The location is perfect for exploring the area. Great restaurants and easy access to the ferries to get to the islands. Sophie and Willem could not have been more helpful. We will definitely return !!!. Yvonne & Peter, Sligo/Ireland, April 2013.

We have had a wonderful week in Olhão. Your apartment is so comfortable and has everything anyone could want and more. We hope to be back one day soon. Frances, Paul, Thomas & Matt, April 2013.

Dette var en fantastisk leilighet på alle måter. Her manglet det ingen ting. Alt var førsteklasses! Utsikten mot havet, naturparken, soloppgangen og solnedgangen. Fra denne leiligheten har man alt! Ligger meget sentralt i forhold til Olhao by, Faro og også Lisboa. Mange gode og hyggelige restauranter, to fantastikse markedshaller og meget godt utbvalg i matvarebutikkene. Dette stedet og vertskapet får våre varmeste anbefalinger! Jorgen & Ase, Oslo, April 2013.

My partner, and myself stayed in the one bedroom apartment for one week, and could not be more pleasantly surprised at how well furnished, and the location of the apartment. We have booked for June, and would highly recommend this apartment for staying in Olhão. Lots of nice restaurants, easy to travel around the area by train or coach. Sophie, and Wim could not be more helpful. Neil, April 2013.

Wat is jullie appartement “Geweldig”. We hebben een leuke tijd hier gehad. Het weer was een beetje wisselvallig, maar was kei gezellig. Houwdoe en hopelijk tot ziens.  Henri, Boekel, maart 2013.

Ideal place to relax and experience the real Portugal. Close to all amenities restaurants, local market, shops, supermarkets, banks, bars, great public transport to all the main sites in Algarve. We were there from December to January and weather was lovely. We will back again. Dagmar & Adam, Ireland, January 2013.

This is a beautiful modern apartment located in a very beautiful unspoilt part of Portugal. My husband and I were blown away with the panoramic coastal views from the large windows. The apartment is furnished to a very high standard with every modern convenience, including air conditioning. We would have no hesitation in recommending to friends. Dee & Jim, November 2012.

Um espaço com excelentes acabamentos, muito acolhedor, com uma decoração de muito bom gosto, muito bem equipado e com uma varanda espaçosa que convida a longas conversas pela noite dentro. Vitor, Porto, Outobro 2012.

Het is een aanrader. Een prachtig appartement, niet ver van het vliegveld Faro. Vanaf het terras een mooi uitzicht. Een gastvrij ontvangst van Wim en Sophie, de eigenaren van het appartement. Olhão is een gezellig, niet touristisch plaatsje met vele leuke restaurantjes. Maria & Jan, oktober 2012.

Mooi nieuw appartement. Smaakvol interieur. Luxe keuken en badkamer. Groot terras met uitzicht op Ria Formosa en Faro. Uitgebreide infomap aanwezig van de omgeving. Olhão is een gezellig vissersdorpje. En vooral niet te vergeten de vriendelijke eigenaren Wim en Sophie die je graag als je buren zou willen hebben. Sigrid & Mat, oktober 2012.

Excellent hosts nothing too much trouble. Apartment beautiful, immaculate, well furnished and a good location near restaurants and ferries to the islands. Fantastic fish restaurants in Olhão. Hope to return soon. Michele, October 2012.

Mooi huis, mooi uitzicht, prachtige locatie, voor herhaling vatbaar. Het appartement is compleet. Op de boulevard kun je heerlijk eten en lekker relaxen met een drankje. In de omgeving is genoeg te doen. Cataplana eten op Culatra en lekker met het bootje weer terug. De kleine plaatsjes in de omgeving zijn ook erg leuk, leuke, kleine plekjes op het strand waar je heerlijk kunt zwemmen en zonnebaden. Gewoon dus een heerlijke week gehad.  Hans & Yvonne, Hengelo, september 2012.

Fantastische vakantie gehad, mooi appartement met ‘n geweldig uitzicht. Komen zeker terug. Sophie en Wim, bedankt.  Twan & Bep, september 2012.

We have had a fantastic time. Your apartment is home from home and much, much more. Everything is so clean and up to date, and the views are wonderful. You have both been superb and for that we thank you. Look forward to seeing you again soon. Thank you once again. Sharon & Anthony, September 2012.

Erg mooi, nieuw, goed verzorgd appartement. Van alle gemakken voorzien. Uitzicht naar Ria Formosa en Faro vanaf groot balkonterras. Beschrijving op de website klopt helemaal. De verhuurders doen er alles aan om er een mooie vakantie te hebben. Op loopafstand van restaurants, winkels, markthallen en haven (boot naar de eilanden voor de kust). Slechts 15km van de luchthaven Faro. Olhão is een leuk dorp en bij lange niet zo toeristisch als de kuststreek westelijk van Faro. Een adres om vaker terug te gaan. Marjo & Wim, september 2012.

Thank you for the lovely stay and your additional help. Found the shoe, okay Paul found the shoe. Will be in touch again. Michelle, September 2012.

Realmente Encantador, Paisagem sem igual, Calmo e Seguro, a Casa é Muito, Muito Confortável e acolhedora, não falta nada. Piscina Soberba. Perfeito para crianças. Obrigado à Sophia e ao seu marido. Simpáticos e prestáveis. Até Breve!!! Olhão e Ilhas com Praias Mto Boas e claro Gastronomia do Melhor que há. Ricardo, Porto, Agosto 2012.

Vous avez pensé à tout!!! Muito obrigado, a seman foi muito bem. C’était une belle semaine avec cette belle vue et ce très agreable appartement. Encore merci.  Anne-Sophie & Victor, Août 2012.

We had a very relaxing and fine vacation. Your apartment had absolutely everything we needed and so tasteful decorated, we really really liked us there. Thank you! Regine, Sarpsborg/Norway, July 2012.


Mi mujer y yo pasamos unos días maravillosos en este acogedor apartamento. Todo estuvo perfecto. El piso está muy bien decorado y el mobiliario es muy confortable. Todo está pensado para que el visitante pase unos días inolvidables. Además, todo parecía como si lo estuviésemos estrenando. No tenemos ninguna pega. Todo perfecto. Y después, la vista. Increible. Justo en primera línea. Teníamos delante la ría y podíamos ver las islas desde nuestra gran terraza.
La ciudad de Olhão es pequeña, tranquila y agradable. El apartamento está situado en la calle principal, pero en una zona muy tranquila. El que busque animación solo tiene que caminar unos quinientos metros y estará en la zona de los mercados en donde hay muchos bares y restaurantes. Y si le gusta la música, hay un buen club de jazz en la zona.
Francisco, Sevilla/Espanha, Febrero 2012.
