New build modern fully furnished apartment in typical Portuguese fishing town. Only 15 mins from Faro airport. Let your holiday start straight away! This area is quieter than the western Algarve, whilst still offering authentic Portuguese living. The apartment is spacious and has 2 double bedrooms, and 1 annexe bedroom. 1 en suite and 2nd bathroom, and double bed settee in living area. Annexe bedroom between the 2 bedrooms suitable for additional child’s bedroom. Cots, high chairs, childrens water toys also available. Balcony area catching sun early afternoon through to sunset.

Olhao is a vibrant fishing town with Marina. Daily fish and fresh produce markets giving you a real Portuguese flavour. Rapidly expanding number of excellent restaurants and bars with a variety of food on offer, but obviously specialising in freshly caught fish and seafood. Miles of fantastic beaches on the Ria Formosa, are a short boat trip away. If hiring a car the Eastern Algarve has a beautiful coastline, and amazing beaches for you to explore. Smart shops in the town, and Faro has a large shopping mall.
If Golf is your thing Vilamoura is only 30 mins drive/taxi for some of the best courses on the Algarve. There are also a few closer to Olhao and Faro.
Olhao is ideally situated for airport access, fantastic beaches, brilliant food and friendly service. Once tried, people return time and again. A testament to the quality of their experience.
We are a Scottish couple who lover travelling. We have been many places in the world, but can honestly say we fell in love with Olhao. You will have a fantastic holiday here.
Marion Philip purchased this apartment in 2012
We bought this modern apartment which is part of a luxury 5* development as it combined modern features with what we feel is a typical Portuguese working fishing town.
The locals are friendly, the food is amazing and cheap, the surrounding area offers some of the most fantastic beaches in Europe. Each town and each beach has its own feel, atmosphere and experience to offer.
Olhao seems to revolve round fish and fishing and this is celebrated every August with a Fish Festival which combines the fishing trade and markets with music and culture.
Olhao offers everything you could want for a holiday, and to live.
The property is nearer to the airport than other resorts in the Algarve.
It as adjoined to a 5* hotel which houses a large outdoor pool, indoor pool,gym, spa and excellent restaurant and bar. All of which are available to apartment residents.
The Spanish border is just 40km away. Worth a day trip for the experience.
The golf courses are cheaper than Vilamoura and Albufeira, yet just as good, in just the same climate.
Entertainment, and eating out are also cheaper that the mid and western Algarve.
The climate is always warm. We have been through the winter to find shorter, warm (20 degrees+)days, with cool evenings.
Summer temperatures can rise to 30 degrees +
We have just spent four nights in this apartment and can't recommend it highly enough. The owner Marion, and Tiago who looks after things in the resort, were both extremely helpful and gave us all the information we needed. They are definitely 5* and there is everything you could possibly want there including beach towels which saved a lot of luggage space. Olhao is a perfect place for a quiet holiday and this is our third stay and we can't wait for the next. There are plenty of places to eat and you take a boat trip to the beaches which are just beautiful. Definitely an uncommercialised part of Portugal, long may it stay that way.
