average rating of 4.0 based on 1 reviews

Geweldig huis midden in het Portugese leven.

  • 4 of 5

Wij zijn 11 dagen in Olhao geweest en hebben een heerlijke tijd gehad. Een fijn ruim huis en echt Portugees, heerlijk. Alles wat je nodig hebt op vakantie is aanwezig. Je zit heel dicht overal bij en er is genoeg te doen. De bootjes naar de prachtige eilanden waar je mooie lange wandelingen kunt maken. Veel restaurantjes in de buurt, heerlijk gegeten. De markthallen zijn ook zeer de moeite waard. Gaan zeker weer heen.
