Property Details of Algarve House

This charming, compact and recently completely rebuilt Townhouse is located in the heart of Olhao's historic Old Town. It is literally 100m (less than a minute walk) to the seafront with its scores of restaurants and cafe bars and right beside the labrynth of cobbled pedestrianised streets of the Old Town itself. It has a double bedroom (with a small balcony) and a twin bedroom, sleeping four people. It also offers a spacious west facing balcony and secluded roof terrace. Facilities include air conditioning, satellite TV, and a jacuzzi style bath.

Local Area Details

Only 12 minutes drive east of Faro Airport, Olhão (pronounced 'ul-yow') is a traditional fishing port, and the third largest town in the Algarve. The Insight Pocket Guide to the Algarve describes Olhão as “one of the most underrated places in the Algarve”. Things have changed however, with the building of a new shopping centre on the main road and a 5 star hotel on the seafront, with a new marina to be built in the next year or so.
The narrow cobbled streets of the Old Town wind down to the elegant palm lined waterfront gardens. Its Esplanade features two iconic Market buildings and scores of cafe bars and superb restaurants. Indeed, Olhão is known as the seafood capital of the Algarve.
So far, the town has escaped the scourge of the noisy late night discos and sports bars that populate the western Algarve - instead, it offers an unruffled, relaxing and stress-free ambiance. Regular ferries and water taxis link the waterfront to the idyllic, uncrowded beaches of Armona, Culatra and Farol on the surrounding sandbanks known as 'The Ilhas'. The nearby Ria Formosa Nature Reserve is a protected area with a fascinating variety of flora and fauna. It is also a breeding ground for the web-footed Algarve 'Water Dog', a species unique to the region! No less than four golf courses are within a short drive. Olhão also offers a wide range of holiday activities including boat trips (cruise, kayak and diving), an indoor municipal swimming pool, go kart racing and bicycle hire. Due to its prime location and close proximity to Faro, it is also an ideal BASE for touring and exploring the entire Algarve, and is a shopping mecca in its own right!

About Beaches
The beautiful pristine and uncrowded offshore island beaches are reached by regular ferries or water taxis, which are quite cheap.
About Parks
The town is beside the famous Ria Formosa Nature Reserve.
About Local Restaurants
A wide choice of cuisine is available but many specialise in seafood which is arguably the best on the Algarve.
