About Richard Robbins
I had another house in Olhao which many people visited every year and some of you will remember. This house is just up the street from my old house which I have now sold. The new house has 3 bedrooms and the living is upstairs while the sleeping is down. which in some ways is preferable as it is cooler at night . I discovered Olhao through a friend who has 14 houses there ! He is trying to save the old houses and I and others all agree they are worth saving - we call it the Crumbling Foundation - as Olhao is such a special place and not at all your normal tourist location . Olhao has much to offer for the discerning traveller.
Richard Robbins purchased this house in 2010
Why Richard Robbins chose Olhao
This house is very handsome and has a uniqueness to it and a lovely feel. It is very easy to live in without any worries of objectionable neighbours and is built like a fortress - totally safe!
Olhao is a vibrant , living town which is friendly and welcoming in the true Portuguese manner and this is why I like Olhao - it is not false in any way.
What makes this house unique
17 foot high ceiling in the living room with a through breeze and views of the sea. House is always cool and the terrace for eating off the living room is north facing so in the shade.
Underfloor heating in all the ground floor rooms for the colder months. This is a grand old house from the early 19th century and certainly has that feel.
