“an excellent modern appartment”
Reviewed June 8, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We stayed at this excellent modern apartment for a week in February and had a brilliant time. The spacious apartment was perfect for a couple having all the necessary mod cons. It was on the edge of the fascinating old town , with a balcony overlooking the street on which you could sit and watch the world go by. In February there were not masses of visitors in the town so you really felt part of the local Portuguese community. Being self-catering we shopped locally and there was a small supermarket 2 minutes walk away to get the essentials the small shops didn't have.

The owner Margarida was so helpful and could't do enough to make us feel at home. She made several useful suggestions for things for us to do. We were 5 minutes walk from a variety of different eateries and bars. A must was a nightly wander through the tiny narrow streets of the old town, where you never knew what was round the next corner.

We were a brisk 5 minutes walk from the train station and we used this a lot to visit other towns. Faro, Tavira and Villa Real (and the Spanish border) were short and cheap train rides away. Olhao has a number of ferries that take you on short journeys to the outlying island communities and these are a must visit.

Olhao in winter is a far cry from the holiday spots like Villamoura and you really feel immersed in a bit of the real Portugal here. We would thoroughly recommend this apartment.

“Superb stay at EntreCubos Guesthouse”
Reviewed March 10, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

person found this review helpful

Just returned from a superb break in Olhão. Weather was perfect, plenty of good bars and restaurants only a short walk away. But what made this trip so perfect was the EntreCubos plus the excellent and welcoming hospitality of its owners Margarida and Luis. The interior of this property is breathtaking. Everything you needed was to hand and was spotlessly clean. If you are looking for a quality break in Southern Portugal only a 20 minute ride from Faro airport then you must stay here. You will not be disappointed !!!
