Property Details of Algarve Apartment

This modern apartment is newly furnished to a high standard of comfort, having a suntrap south-facing balcony with magnificent views over the cubist roofs of old Olhao, the Ria Formosa Natural Park and the islands with their miles of sandy beaches. Another large balcony runs the width of the building off the bedrooms and catches the late afternoon sun and stunning sunsets. It is situated on the third floor of a small block of four apartments and has an elevator. It is only minutes from the town centre, train and bus stations. It has an extremely light, spacious lounge with ample comfortable seating and modern furniture and lighting. The large fully-equipped kitchen has fitted units and benefits from a built-in filter system for drinking-water. It has a big kitchen table and 6 chairs, and a walk-in pantry. There are 3 ample bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (one en-suite) both with bath and shower-over. Two bedrooms have king-size beds and the other has two singles. Each bedroom has enormous wardrobe space and are bathed in light from the large french windows. We can supply a travel cot and high chair if needed.

Local Area Details

The apartment is in the heart of Olhao with nearby cafes restaurants supermarkets and pharmacies. A short stroll brings you to the main Avenida da Republica and the pedestrian shopping streets which lead on to the seafront gardens where you will find the famous markets. One sells a dazzling array of fruit, vegetables and meat while the other offers a huge variety of fish brought in daily from the fishing fleet in the nearby harbour, where you can watch the catch being uploaded. The markets are surrounded by small shops selling shellfish, outdoor cafes where you can watch world go by, and quality restaurants offering menus at very affordable prices. The Fisherman's Quarter of old Olhao is a warren of narrow, twisting lanes which are fascinating to explore. The apartment is also close to the train station, bus station and a nearby stop for the town circular bus.

Close to the markets is the pier from where the inexpensive ferries leave for the short trip to Armona, Culatra and Farol beaches. These islands have miles of soft, clean white sand and clear water. They have regularly been awarded the coveted EC Blue Flag and have life-guards during the summer months. For the little ones there is also a choice of bathing on the Ria Formosa side of the islands.

A car is not necessary unless you wish to explore further afield. Buses and trains run frequently to nearby Faro and also run the length of the coast. A train and ferry ride east to Spain makes a great day out.

The Algarve enjoys a typically Mediterranean climate which makes it the ideal destination all year round. Olhao is in the Eastern Algarve, less than 20 minutes from Faro Airport, and an ideal base for exploring its historic towns, small villages and countryside. The cost of living in Olhao is one of the lowest on the Algarve making it an affordable town for eating, drinking and shopping. The town is set in the Ria Formosa Natural Park and is a favourite with naturalists and bird-watchers. Currently the Algarve has more than 30 golf-courses which are played all year round (www.algarvegolf.net/courses). Lawn bowling is becoming increasingly popular and there are now many clubs who welcome visitors and provide hire of woods too. The new Parkalgar Racing Circuit has a calendar of world class racing including A1GP and Superbike (www.autodromodoalgarve.com). July brings one of the largest motor-bike rallies in Europe in Faro. During the summer months there are numerous traditional festivals held in Olhao and nearby towns, not least of which is the huge seafoood festival held over a week in August.

The list of things to do, places to visit and entertainments of all kinds are too numerous to list here and a folder will be available to help you enjoy your stay (also see www.algaveuncovered.com) and follow links to Olhao). We are English speaking, live nearby and will greet you on arrival, show you around if you wish, and can help with any queries you may have. We can also arrange a taxi to and from the airport if you require.
