Along with my pet dog Odin and I stayed a month with Paulo. I couldn't have asked for a more pleasant time. Paulo and his lovely wife Isabel were the perfect hosts, friendly helpful yet conscious of your privacy. The apartment situated on the first floor is well appointed and was ideal for me. The balcony patio attached to the apartment was the perfect spot to enjoy breakfast facing south and catching the morning and afternoon sun -- a lovely start to each day. The immediate neighborhood is just a short walk from the town center and the marina area beyond. A typically Portuguese local bar at the end of the street serves great value food with a friendly local atmosphere. Very comfortable accommodation with exceptional hosts.

My favourite place I've stayed on my trip, so far! I really enjoyed the room; two beds, bathroom, kitchenette, and very interestingly decorated. I especially liked the radio/record player. Don't let the idea of dogs being around scare you away- they're extremely kind and very quiet. Good location, on way in/out of town. You also have your own patio area to relax in. Paulo is very nice to talk to and generous. I would definitely choose Paulo's place the next time I'm in Olhao.

Paulo was a really good and nice host. He came to pick me up from the airport and showed the way to the ferries. Everything was easy and the place was really great for the money. Definately going again if Im visiting Portugal.

Paulo is a great host, you can always ask him for help or information as he is available mostly all of the time. We enjoyed our stay at his place and loved the terrace for our daily breakfast and drink in the evening. The apartement is in a quiet street and two supermarkets where you can get everything you need can be reached in 2 mins walk as they are directly enclosed to the end of the street. Olhão is perfeclty located as you can easily go to one of the islands in front of Faro and Olhão by Ferry and the good thing about those islands is that there are much less tourists at the beach than in the western part of the Algarve coast. The same counts for Fuseta or Tavira that you can reach from Olhão by train in short time and for nearly no money. Olhão also has some nice retaurants we you can eat some good regional fish. If you want to go to Faro or further in the direction of Lagos its possible to go there by train or bus. Thanks again Paulo, we loved to spend our holiday in the Algarve region in Olhão and at your place!!

Great place, good location, exactly what I wanted but better than expected. Paulo is a wonderful person and perfect host. The room spacious, pleasantly cool even on hottest days, cooking facilities are very good and terrace is where I spent most time. I like Olhao a lot, better than Lagos or Faro, it`s more "real" somehow, has it`s own (not just "designed by tourist department") flavour. Faro is just few minuets, @1,20€ by train, away and inexpensive connections to the district.

Interaction with guests

We will be in the apartment below which guests must cross to access the terrace where the rooms are locate therefore it will be easy to meet one of the members of the hosting family.

About Paulo

O meu adágio favorito é : "a vida é curta mas os dias são longos".

I live in Olhão with family and we have 4 cats, 1 dog and a long time rental Canadian guest improvised an animal shelter under the stairs to the house and there are 4 resident dogs outside the house.
