“The best we have ever stayed”
Reviewed 23 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Oceanview is situatie in a great location, with a panoramic view of nature reserve Ria Formosa and the islands. Especially the coming and going of the tides makes the view and colors different all the time.
The apartment has everything you need. A 5 minutes walk on the boulevard will take you to splendid terraces, restaurants and the famoust red market halls.
The owners, Wim and Sophie who live in Portugal since 2000 provide a warm welcome. They made every effort to deliver a real holiday feeling.

“Truly a home from home”

Difficult to add anything new to the previous reviews, but this is really a home from home. Sophie and Wim are excellent hosts and they have thoughtfully provided everything you could need for a relaxing holiday. The apartment is beautifully furnished, the beds are comfortable and the kitchen and bathrooms contain everything you could possible need. So nice not to have to go out and buy dishwasher tablets, kitchen towels etc as you do with most self catering accommodations. The apartment is in a great location, 10-15 mins walk from anything you might need. The daily market is amazing - there are two halls - one with fish and one with fruit, veg, cheese, meats etc. Fantastic quality and so cheap. Sophie and Wim greeted us with a glass of wine and told us a lot about the area and ideas for trips. We took a boat trip to the island with Natura (book on the marina, 5 mins walk) and had the boat to ourselves! The ferries to the islands where the beaches are, are frequent and cheap. Restaurants along the shoreline do amazing fish - and again, so cheap. This is the real Portugal, it's not refined and there's not a 'night life' but for a relaxing chilled week with good food, wine and sun, it's fab!
