Things to do

Church of Nossa Senhora do Rosário:

The Igreja de Nossa Senhora do Rosário was constructed in the early 17th century and served as the centre of Olhao community life. Unfortunately it was severely damaged in the devastating earthquake of 1755, but reconstruction allows visitors to get a feel for what the Church of Nossa Senhora do Rosário originally looked like.

Church of Nossa Senhora da Soledade:

Olhao's Igreja de Nossa Senhora da Soledade is a fine example of Baroque and Roccoco styles. It was the first church of its kind to be constructed here. It once served as a parochial church, but today it is primarily used as a pilgrimage chapel.

Mercado de Olhao:

The bustling local market in Olhao is the perfect place to see and taste local culture. A wide variety of vendors sell fruits, vegetables, meats, fish, and drinks at reasonable prices. Saturdays are the busiest when local craftsmen set up outside the Mercado.

Culatra Island:

Culatra island is found a short distance from Faro. The island is small: a mere four miles in length and less than six-tenths of a mile in width. The beaches on the ocean side are pristine with warm waters. The lagoon side is used primarily for anchoring boats and visiting yachts. A ferry brings travellers directly from Olhao.

Golf:

The Algarve is home to some of the very best golf courses in Europe. Not only are the courses well maintained and beautiful in their own right, but they offer players incredible views of the region. There are three courses near Olhao: Pinheiros Altos, Colina Verde, and San Lorenzo.

Ria Formosa:

The nature reserve of Rio Formosa is comprised of a lagoon and several small islands. Birds use this area during their yearly migration south. There are a few small towns located on the islands that have taverns and cafés, and the beaches are excellent.

Weather in Olhao

Portugal enjoys a sunny, warm climate. Sun is prevalent all year long and the summer months are characterised by temperatures averaging at around 28ºC. Late July and early August tend to be hotter, though the ocean breeze keeps things cool. Winters are mild; temperatures rarely drop below 10ºC. The most rain falls in March. Spring and fall are also nice times to visit; temperatures are in the low-20s and there are fewer tourists.

De extra goede punten zijn de ligging van het huis en het verwarmd zwembad. Wat je op foto's niet ziet is dat je het kan afdekken voor de koele nachten. we hebben temp gehad van 28 a 30 gr water. Het huis is wat we verwacht hadden rustig gelegen en er is van alles voorzien we hadden niets tekort van uitrusting. Zeer goede wifi. We komen weer in 2018. Groetjes Paul en Elly

If you want to, there's a cute ferry in season which takes you across to the island with miles upon miles of white sand beach all to yourself! It's genuinely one of the best spots my wife and I have ever come across. I started each morning with a coffee in the charming little square in Fuseta (again, less than 5 mins walk from the apartment), and we often lunched at one of the restaurants on the sidewalk alongside the harbour (6 mins walk) which serve the best, freshest fish you will ever eat, plus salad and potatoes/chips for 10 euros per person. It is... heaven! The apartment itself is stylishly furnished, with high end Miele appliances and the views from the living room and bedroom are amazing. There are 2 bathrooms (really helpful) and it's on the first floor (about 12 steps up from the front door) so you see out into the lagoon and no one overlooks you. There's a little terrace off the kitchen with a table for eating out and a very handy drying rack for beach clothes, and up on the roof (2 flights of stairs up from the apartment) there's a FANTASTIC private terrace area which has a table, BBQ and sun loungers on. The views are fab, and it's perfect for an evening drink if the range of bars and restaurants 2 mins away seem just too far away.... Oh, and there's a small supermarket 5 mins walk up the street, as well as an amazing fish and veg market every day by the harbour, a real treat if you're a cook like I am. You don't see old-style markets like this much anymore, which is a great shame. Overall, my wife and I couldn't have been happier here. I didn't take my flip flops off once. HIGHLY recommended!!
