Lovely relaxing spacious well equiped villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 2 week holiday in this lovely spacious well equipped villa. It is a little way from the coast and Olhao the nearest large town, about 10 minutes by car, but we did not find this to be a problem as it was quiet and well positioned to travel to excellent restuarants, all again within 10 minutes drive on quiet roads. We particularly liked Villa Monte just north of Moncarapacho and Gunthers on the Olhao/Estoi road, both highly recommended. Olhao itself a fish paradise.

Maria the owner was extremely helpul and friendly, nothing was too much trouble for her and her husband Vito.

We have travelled throughout The Algarve in the past, this area less commercialised and so much better for it in our view. Local prices were very low and the Euros went further than we expected.

Highly recommended villa within easy reach of all necessary facilities and the airport.

Comfortable and fully furnished villa

  • 5 of 5

We were a large group and spent two weeks in Villa Harmonia. The owners of the Villa were very professional and friendly throughout the booking process and during the stay. The villa exceeded our expectations. It's very ample with a functional living area and large bedrooms. Outdoor facilities (pool, barbecue and games room) were children friendly. The villa is located in a new development area, but close enough by car to Olhao town and beaches. A good option for families and large groups.

Stunning family villa to get away from it all

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous family holiday. You couldn't want any more from the villa and the photos certainly paint a fair reflection of the property - clean, modern, spacious, comfortable. The pool was gorgeous and fastidiously cleaned more than 3 times in our 10 day stay. The air conditioning is top quality and the villa is kitted out with everything you need including lots of plug sockets. The only thing we felt was missing was a 'welcome guide' to the surrounding area. The villa is not easy to find and we continually got lost going to various places. A comprehensive user-friendly welcome 'map' with clear directions to places of interest / restaurants / supermarkets, pharmacies etc and top tips for beaches, markets, parking would have saved us lots of time and trouble. For example there is a fab restaurant within a 10 minute walk that we only discovered just as we were leaving. All in all though, fantastic holiday and Maria & her husband, the perfect hosts

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your kind comments. We are really pleased you liked the villa and had a great time with your family. Welcome guide with interest places directions it's a helpful suggestion that we are working on. Actually we thought that with internet / google maps and GPS it was a little outdated but it's always better. Usually we talk about the area when the guests arrive and after send an email with map directions, probably due to your late arrive we didn't talk about that and was was a pity you didn't ask us after. Very much looking forward to your return visit, next time with much more to explore and all directions. Best to you and your lovely and kind family.

Activity and Interests


Fuseta with its wonderful lagoon beach is only 5-6m away with boats to wonderful unspoilt beach islands. There are boats from Olhao, Cabanas and Tavira which take you to wonderful island beaches. Tavira beach island has been voted 4th best beach in Europe! (Telegraph June 2005). The bigger, noisier Central Algarve beaches, water parks, go karting, etc, attractions are only 30 mins away, if that is your wish. Then you can return to the peace and tranquillity of the villa!


Car hire essential to enjoy the villa and the area.

Faro airport is approx 20 - 25 mins drive away via fast roads.


Within easy distance are Tavira (regarded as the loveliest town in the Algarve), Estoi (with its Rococo palace and Roman ruins), Olhao (fishing port), Fresh fruit, veg and fish markets, wonderful restaurants and of course Faro with its fine shopping malls.

The nearby Ria Formosa National Park offers excellent walks, extensive beaches and birdwatching.

Further Details:

The small town of Moncarapacho is approx 3/4kms away with supermarkets, bars, restaurants, petrol station, internet cafe, cash machines, pharmacy, dentist, bank, post office, etc. There is a bar/bistro restaurant approximately 850m from the villa - 3 mins drive but can be walked in approx 14/15 mins in day time. Wonderful lunches at 6 euros and you will find it difficult to spend 15 euros per person per night including your drinks! Come and enjoy many aspects of the unspoilt Eastern Algarve. Fish, meat, beers and wine are plentiful and low cost.
