About Kathryn Monteiro

My husband and I live in England. Until I retired recently I was an an administrator at a local hospital and my husband Francis is a Financial Consultant. Our daughter graduated and is now working in the financial sector and our other children and grandchildren live not too far away.

We have travelled extensively, both on personal holidays and also with my husband's company. We have visited Europe many times and decided Portugal was the place for us, mainly because of its beauty and also its proximity.

Kathryn Monteiro purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Kathryn Monteiro chose Olhao region

We love Olhao for many reasons:

It is a traditional Portuguese village, full of local people as well as tourists

The Rio Formosa is beautiful and full of wildlife

The ferry is fun and there are some lovely beaches in the area

There are plenty of bars and restaurants locally. We like to sit outside and 'people watch'

The cost of food and drink in Olhao is a lot less than the more well known tourist resorts

What makes this apartment unique

The famous meat, fish and veg markets are open daily, with extra outside stalls at weekends with live chickens and birds, etc.

Faro airport is only 15 minutes drive away. The city of Tavira is ten minutes away and Vilamoura further down the coast is less than 30 minutes drive

We like to sit on the terrace early evening with a drink and watch the massive herons and other birds swoop by

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have received lots of feedback from our guests, all of whom were very pleased and impressed with the apartment and the area.

Very nice appartement ideally situated

  • 5 of 5

We come regularly in Portugal for years. Because of my wife's family links we need to be in town. Village Marina is close to che town center, but within walking distance à the marina, a beautiful garden avenue and several very nice restaurant.

At the same time, as we come with our car, it is easy to go to beaches and the numerous places of interest around Olhao.

The place is very quiet and each time my wife has to be with her family, being a fFrench novel writer, I keep quietly in working on one of my novels. I achieved two of them in this place "Une fleur sous la mer" and "Figaro est mort". Furthermore, even if we never actually met, we got easily on frieinly terms with Mrs Monteiro and the lady representing her in Olhao, Pam Pardo. We hope we will go on. D. M. B

Superbly finished 3 bedroom apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic apartment and location. Apartment included the use of a BBQ which we took full advantage of. The apartment is located a 5 minute walk from the markets and seafront cafes and bars of Olhao. With the opening of the new road from Faro airport our transfer time was 15 minutes. Greta rooftop pool with uninterrupted views of the Ria and extremely convenient for town. Heavenly and Peaceful.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in your apartment at Olhao. It's a very nice place and the walk in to town was excellent for my parents who can't do hills. We ate at a different place each night and went back to our favourite on our last night.

The apartment is very high spec and had everything we needed. The balcony was a great spot and watching the flamingos fly in early morning was wonderful. The pool was great and what a view from up there. Would certainly recommend the apartment and location to others.
