Arrival Day

We set the arrival time at your holiday home to be any time after 1600.   This is to allow us time to prepare the holiday home for you. We are extremely flexible in that we will try and prepare the holiday home to coincide with your flight arrival time. But we can not guarantee this will happen. We are also happy to allow you leave baggage at the holiday home whilst the property is being prepared allowing you to get the most out of your holiday. 

We ask that you carefully read the holiday home manual we will send you before the start of your holiday, as this contains all the contact information of the Manager who will be meeting you and looking after you during your holiday. 

Our Manager will be expecting a telephone call from you on arrival day. The Manager will only attend the property after that phone call in readiness to meet you.   We do not have a reception and each guest is met personally. If we have more than one client at once arriving we will let you know and ask that maybe you give us a little time. Maybe pop for a coffee and we can call you when we are ready to meet you. Our Manager will like to spend some time with you explaining how appliances work in the holiday home and let you know about the local area and will be happy to answer any questions you might have.  


Departure Day

We set the departure time at 1000. We ask for your departure details or plans once you leave us. This way we can schedule our holiday home preparation for the next guest just like we did for you. If we can offer a later stay during the winter months we will try and accommodate you.   In the Summer months due to the high volume of guests we have to strictly adhere to the 1000 departure time at the latest.


Our "All important" Welcome book

Before the start of your holiday we will send you our online Guest Welcome Book which is packed with everything you need to know about your holiday Home and the local area.

The book gives you all of the meeting arrangements, directions and how to get the keys. 

We have tried to give you a real insight and help you to plan your holiday before you even arrive. 

Our online Guest book is compatible with smart phones and tablets meaning you can take the guest book with you where ever you go to maximise your holiday experience. 

During your holiday if you find places not in the book you would like to recommend to future guests please do let us know and we would love to add them to our book.   The idea is to offer a great book that guests find useful.

“A very comfortable apartment, very clean and really close to local amenities including the ferry to the islands” “Thankyou for an excellent service. Please say a special thankyou to Aline who help us beyond what would be expected. My daughter will be studying in Coimbra University and Aline helped her with a problem with communicating with the University. ”

“Wir sind absolut zufrieden mit dieser Unterkunft gewesen und hatten tolle Tage in Olhao. Aline hat den Check-in mit uns gemacht, war sehr freundlich und stand für Fragen zur Verfügung. Die Wohnung ist super ausgestattet: Klimaanlage, elektrische Jalousien, sehr gut ausgestattete Küche und Waschmaschine. Es war sehr heiß während unseres Urlaubes und wir freuten uns nach unseren Ausflügen immer über die angenehm klimatisierten Räume. Wir haben hier richtig gut geschlafen. Die Lage ist perfekt: Man braucht in die Altstadt fußläufig 5-10 Minuten, auch zur Uferpromenade ist es nicht weit und wir fühlten uns jederzeit sicher. Eine Bäckerei, eine Tapas-Bar und eine Bushaltestelle befinden sich in Sichtweite der Wohnung. Als Familie mit einem 15 Monate altem Kind, war das ideal, da die Wege kurz waren. Mit dem Auto ist man in 15 Minuten am Strand von Fuseta, mit der Fähre sind wir nach Armona gefahren (Fahrplan beachten, ca. 15 Minuten Überfahrt), 30 Minuten Autofahrt dauert es nach Tavira bzw. zum Praia do Barril. Olhao an sich ist aber schon interessant, weil man hier das portugiesische Kleinstadtleben authentisch miterleben kann. Den Markt am Samstag sollte man auch unbedingt besuchen. Am besten früh morgens. Dann ist es nicht so heiß und man kann die Einheimischen am besten bei ihren Einkäufen beobachten. Wir würden diese Unterkunft auf jeden Fall noch einmal buchen. ” “We were really satisfied with the apartment and your service.
