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 Olhos de Água
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. You take advantage of an exceptional view from the private terrace or from the swimming pool fitted out with green spaces. Private parking lot closed for 2 cars.

Nice area, near sea, great apartment.
The location was wonderful. We were a bit confused at first as we put the location into our GPS and it took us to a condo to Guia. Thank goodness Bernadette corrected us to go to Ohlos de Aqua! The condo was great for 4 adults. We had a beautiful balcony and several nice restaurants nearby. We had to go out to buy toilet paper, paper towels and soap, but otherwise the condo was well equipped. Russell and Bernadette were loverly and friendly people.
We thank you a lot for your review.
The exact location is available in the Homeaway website. It was the first time in 4 years that it happens to our guests, even for guests from north America. The name of the street, "25 Abril", is very common in Portugal, so because of that it is important to precise the name of the city "Olhos de Agua" in your GPS, or to use the GPS coordinates that I sent to you. Hopefully, you find it quickly!
I am really sorry for the toilet paper, I will inform the cleaning lady about that missing. As we provide 2 towels by guest, we do not use to provide paper towels. But we are going to ask to our other guest what they think about that, and we will maybe change our policy and provide soap too. We are very concerned by the satisfaction of our guests, and we are always ready to improve our service. Bernadette & Vincent
Ideal holiday accommodation
We stayed in this lovely duplex apartment for 10 days in June. Fantastic location, so close to a beautiful beach and lots of good restaurants and bars. The apartment was clean and well equipped and the balcony affords lovely views of the cliffs and beach. Excellent pool again with lovely views which, for a lot of time, we had to ourselves. The beds were a bit harder than I would have liked and it would have been useful to have had instructions for the dishwasher, tv etc and perhaps a contact list for emergency numbers (eg nearest hospital, doctors, chemist etc). Fortunately we had no emergencies and we worked the other stuff out. We would love to return.
I thank you Priscilla for your review. Your comments are very useful to improve our accommodation, and we will provide more instructions for our guests. Looking forward to seeing you a next time.
A very well appointed apartment, ideally located within a stone's throw from the beach. Pool area very quiet in June which suited us perfectly as a small family group with 2 children. Would recommend.
Great location in Central Algarve. Easy access to beaches and shopping. Great apartment, plenty of space & clean. Owners were very accommodating. Definitely plan on going back.
Thanks Jeff, you will be welcome again.
Well maintained property in ideal location
We stayed for the month of September and could not have asked for a better location to enjoy the beach as well as tour the Algarve. The apartment is modern, clean and well maintained and any questions/issues were promply delt with by the owner. Would recommend it to anyone looking for a beach location that is centrally located and enables you to tour other areas.
Many thanks for your review, we are very glad that you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to see you a next time.
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
