COSY BUT SPACIOUS TOWN HOUSE IN HEART OF OLD TOWN, OHLAO

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Olhao - Casa Cor-de-Rosa

Three/ Four bedrooms. Large sun terrace. Fully fitted kitchen. Very near harbour

A lovely traditional town house tastefully restored in friendly local neighbourhood. Large roof terrace provides space to relax undisturbed or sunbathe. Cool interior provides shade and space in heat of the day. A relaxing retreat in a non-touristy location, and yet all amenities on your doorstep. Local sea front restaurants, cafes, bakery, bank, Internet cafe, beauty therapist, fresh fish and vegetable markets- all less than 100m. Supermarket, boutiques and passenger ferries to 3 unspoilt Ria Formosa islands and beaches a five minute walk.

Two minutes walk from your doorstep are two amazing sea front local markets - even bigger range of produce on Saturdays when people from all villages nearby come and sell their wares.

Satellite TV installed for evenings in or escape from the sun

Very easy access by rail and road to other Algarve resorts, golf courses, water theme park, nature reserve. Faro 20 minutes by taxi. Lisbon and Seville 2 hours away.

Taxi can be organised from the airport in advance: Olhao is the perfect place to feel far away from the international tourist crowd. This working fishing town has great local character and faded grandeur. With its own distinctive style of Moorish white square buildings and narrow alleyways where the fishermen still live, hours can be spent wandering and exploring architecture and local life. Little braziers outside front doors waft the smell of grilling sardines, and fishermen mend their nets on the quays.

Olhao has a range of high quality affordable seafront restaurants, large covered markets, parks, and a very good supermarket. Both the boutiques on the Avenida and the smaller shops throughout the cobbled lanes provide ample opportunity for 'retail therapy'. Local expertise provides very affordable pedicures and massage minutes from 'home'. The Saturday market offers particularly varied and interesting wares, particularly locally made produce.

Beaches are only a short ferry ride away from the town. There are in fact 3 unspoilt islands each with their own character, very easily accessible from the port. There you will find the wonderful empty sandbanks of the nature reserve it is part of, and its charming fishing/holiday communities.

Ohlao is the ideal place to completely relax, soak up the sun and enjoy the local life.

if you want to you may want to explore further, however, it is easy to take a train, bus or hire car to other coastal resorts, the nearby water park or even to Spain.
