Luxury town house with own pool and unique sea views, in the heart of Olhão



Updated: 19-Sep-2016
Beautiful holiday house with private pool, sleeps 6, near seafront, Algarve

The house has its own private rooftop pool and comfortable terraces with panoramic views of the sea, the islands of the Ria Formosa and the town. Recently renovated, it combines the simplicity of the traditional Portuguese style with a modern touch and comfort.

It is located in the Barreta quarter, the old pedestrian part of town, just behind the seafront and the fresh fruit, vegetable and fish markets.

The house has 3 double bedrooms each with its own basin, shower and WC.

The street level entrance leads to the first floor which has an open plan living, dining and kitchen area and 2 double bedrooms.

The third bedroom is on the second floor as well as a large terrace with the pool.

The pool has a deck and comfortable mattresses for sunbathing. An additional top terrace with magnificent sea views provides a perfect setting for a peaceful breakfast or drinks after the beach.

The pool is cleaned by a U.V. system

Absolutely Incredible

  • 5 of 5

I have always been fascinated with Olhao and especially the beaches of the islands that are reached by ferry from Olhao. These are the most beautiful and empty beaches in the world. What was lacking until recent was a good place to stay. I was so happy to find the house on this site. Contact with the owner was easy and booking the house was easy enough. Although it was just the two of us, we choose this particular house because of it's small rooftop pool. We were absolutely stunned how beautiful the house was. It has been remodeled by experts making it so comfortable without changing the character. It has been decorated with class and the house itself is very spacious. We absolutely loved the top floor terrace, from early morning to late night the view is mesmerizing. The small pool is just wonderful, it felt clean and look stunning. We were here during the second week of July. Although it was hot and the house does not have air conditioning, it stays relatively cool and comfortable. The house is located in a car-free area. Around the corner are all the stores you would need and the fish restaurants along the main boulevard just offer incredible seafood at low prices. Staying at this house for over a week was absolute heaven, I do not remember a better vacation than this one.

Wunderschönes Haus

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist noch schöner als es die Fotos erahnen lassen. Die Vermieter sind super nett und halten das Haus ist einen großartigen Zustand - es ist alles wie neu. Eine Terrasse mit Pool, eine Terrasse mit Blick aufs Meer - schöner gehts kaum!

Der Ort lässt sich problemlos und günstig vom Flughafen mit dem Taxi erreichen. Allerdings hat er nicht so viel zu bieten wie das Haus. Wenn man also mehr als Erholung sucht, benötigt man auf jeden Fall einen Mietwagen und den sollte man sich schon am Flughafen mieten, denn in Olhao gibt es keine Vermittlung.

Olhão is the most traditional fishing village of the Algarve with narrow, winding streets lined with white houses. Many artists have chosen to settle there because of its picturesque character and traditions. The town still lives on traditional fishing and has an extraordinary daily fish market and outstanding seafood restaurants. Beaches can be reached by ferry boats and water taxis which take you to the unspoiled islands of Armona, Culatra and Farol. There you can find long stretches of white sandy beaches safe for swimming and appreciate the peace and serenity of this unique nature reserve. Olhão is a perfect holiday village which combines the pleasure and fun of having restaurants, cafés, shopping and night life at hand as well as easy access by boat to pristine and secluded beaches. The area also has a large choice of golf courses and Seville is just over 2 hours drive way and Lisbon 2 and a half hours.
