LUXURY TOWNHOUSE WITH PATIO, POOL AND SEA VIEWS, IN THE OLD CENTER OF OLHAO

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Olhao - Casa Sant'Ana

Spacious holiday house with private pool, sleeps 8, near seafront, Algarve

Casa Sant'Ana has its own private rooftop pool and comfortable terraces with panoramic views of the sea, the islands of the Ria Formosa and the town. It is located in the midst of narrow cobbled streets in the traditional fisherman's neighbourhood of Olhao. The seafront with its vegetable, fruits and fish markets and restaurants is just a two-minute walk away. The ground floor of the house has a large living room opening onto a shaded patio, a fully equipped kitchen and a dining area. Each of the four bedrooms on the first and second floors has its own bathroom with basin, WC, shower or bath tub. They have their own private access from the main entrance or the patio.

Casa Sant'Ana has a small rooftop pool with a panoramic view over the Ria Formosa and the islands.

The house is also suitable for a winter stay as every room has independently-controlled floor-heating. The wood-burning stove in the living room adds extra comfort and cosiness.

Suggestions for your stay: Take the picturesque ferries across the Ria Formosa to the pristine beaches of Armona, Culatra and Farol islands.

Take a good picnic (and suncream !) for a day on the beach. Walk along the beaches for kilometres.

Alternatively sit on the roof terrace by the pool and watch the seascape change with tides.

Watch birds in the Nature Reserve close by.

Visit the Ria Formosa with a private guide in a traditional fishing boat.

Eat grilled sardines and other delicious seafood at local restaurants.

Do as other Olhanenses and buy your fresh seafood, fruit and vegetables from traditional markets open 6 days a week.

Watch fishermen at work in Olhao´s active fishing harbours.

Rent a car and combine your stay with a visit to Tavira (20 km), Sevilla (190 km) and Andalusia nearby, or Lisbon (280 km) and the Alentejo on the way.

Guestbook comments from the manager
Hinter den weissen Mauern hat sich fuer uns ein wahres Ferienparadies verwirklicht. Alle vier Schlafraeume haben uns begeistert, sogar der Sprung ins kuehlende Nass war noch besonders durch den wunderschoenen Blick aufs Meer und Olhao. Wir kommen gerne wieder!!!

The kind of place we would have for ourselves

  • 4 out of 5
Now we are back in London, facing the onset of Autumn and then Winter with no other holiday booked, all we can think about is going back to Casa Santa'Ana same time next year but this time for two weeks instead of one.
The plan is to spend time just relaxing in the villa or going to the islands of Ria Formosa. We planned too many things last time, when we really had everything in our doorstep. We are regulars to the Algarve and always hire a car to see as much as we can. This time we arrived after a week of touring Spain, which was great but next time we will just stop right here and enjoy everything the locality has to offer. The restaurants of Olhao with their excellent food and cozy atmospheres and plenty of variety - that's if we even leave the house. With so many areas to relax in - the shaded sun lounge, the central courtyard, the rooftop pool area with its views out across the roof tops of Olhao and out to Ria Formosa, and amazing sunsets thrown in, we are quite inclined to stay in. Casa Sant'Ana is just the kind of place we would have for ourselves.The right mix of Portuguese and Moorish architecture, elegantly designed and laid out. It is a private enclave within the alley ways and bustling medina of this very authentic fishing town where Portuguese life emanates from every window and doorway. Yes, the British tourist is catered for, with the occasional curry house and chinese (you don't hear me complaining) but Olhao is a million miles from Albufeira. Casa Sant'Ana is no country idyll; you are staying in your own private oasis, cheek by jowl among the locals and all of the glorious smells, sites and sounds of the traditional Algarve. As close as you will find to Algarve before package holidays were invented.

Thank you Eleonore

Olhao in Portugal

Olhão is the most traditional fishing village of the Algarve with narrow, winding streets lined with white houses. Many artists have chosen to settle there because of its picturesque character and traditions. The town still lives on traditional fishing and has an extraordinary daily fish market and outstanding seafood restaurants. Beaches can be reached by ferry boats and water taxis which take you to the unspoiled islands of Armona, Culatra and Farol. There you can find long stretches of white sandy beaches safe for swimming and appreciate the peace and serenity of this unique nature reserve. Olhão is a perfect holiday village which combines the pleasure and fun of having restaurants, cafés, shopping and nightlife at hand as well as easy access by boat to pristine and secluded beaches. The area also has a large choice of golf courses and Seville is just over 2 hours drive way and Lisbon 2 and a half hours.

Other Activities: visit of fish market
