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.

Travel to Olhao

Olhao is located only nine miles from Faro. Faro Airport (FAO) has connections to most major European cities. Daily trains and buses run regularly between Faro Airport and Olhao. Car hires and taxi rides are also easy options. There are numerous car hire services at the airport, and taxis are abundant.

                                                      Lovely apartment with all the mod cons

                                                      5 of 5
                                                      This was a lovely apartment in a residential area that was well equipt with washing machine, dishwasher, filter coffee machine along with more. Heaters for the cold and fans for the heat. The furniture and beds are very comfortable. The apartment is very clean and well maintained. The only extras we needed during our stay were additional blankets that Dr Mitchel bought for us, introducing us to his granddaughter who got me conected to the Wifi! The only improvement that could possibly be made would be for newer bed linen. We were visiting relatives so we were taken to the nearby beaches and walks on the beautiful Ria Formosa, otherwise I think a car would have been needed to make the most of visiting the area. The sea front, just 20 mins walk away is full of cafes, bars & resturants and it is easy to book boat trips from the harbour area. I would recomend the Margoya restaurant if you like Japanees food, they do a very good all inclusive menu. A great holiday apartment that I happily recommend.

                                                      Excellent choice we were impressed with the apartment it was modern well furnished and well equipped. We were met on arrival shown around and given loads of information,the welcome pack was most appreciated. The cleaner who came in once a week should have a 5star rating. We had a good holiday really liked Fuzeta and we will return. TJM

                                                      5 of 5
                                                      We first stayed in this fabulous apartment in 2010, and enjoyed Easter here again this year. The location won't be beaten and the views of the lagoon from the lounge are mesmerizing, you won't need the television. Such are the quality of the furnishings and decor that the apartment still feels like new. The kitchen is a chef's dream, with plenty of table and glassware to self cater comfortably. This is more than just a rental, and the owner has done and thought of everything possible to ensure a wonderful stay. You will not be disappointed. We have stayed in many apartments over the years but this one is without a doubt the best. A truly five star accommodation.
