Apartment in Algarve, Portugal

Property Details of Algarve Apartment

A comfortable 2 Bedroom Apartment located on a quiet pedestrianised street in the heart of Olhao's historic Old Town. It is literally 300m (about two minutes walk) to the seafront promenade with its scores of restaurants and cafe bars. With 2 double beds and 1 single, it can accommodate up to five people. It also has a small private balcony and large communal roof terrace. The apartment is on the second floor of a 3 story block of only 6 apartments. No lift, so not really suitable for elderly people!

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!
