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.

                                                              Large, we'll spec'd villa.

                                                              5 of 5
                                                              We had a late arrival of about 12am but the owners still met us to walk through the villa. We went with another family making 10 of us in total but there was more than enough space. The owners also left some welcome items due to the time we arrived and we're very helpful. The villa is very well kept and very clean with as new appliances. You do need a car as the nearest village is a mile away but there is a taxi company to get you home if you chose to have food and drinks at the village. Fuesta, Olhao and Tavira all with 30 mins drive to see the eastern Algarve. I would easily recommend for a group holiday especially if you like remote places and you save money by having BBQ's and drinks rather than beach fronted restaurants.

                                                              We were a little worried when we booked this as it looked too good to be true on the website. However on arrival it turned out to be even better than it looks. A beautiful converted farmhouse with masses of outside space and a beautifully clean pool. There is every thing you could possibly need equipment wise and enough towels to supply the whole village :o) Graham & Bernadette made us very welcome and although we did not see much of them as they made sure that we had our privacy. We left feeling that we had made some new friends. On our next visit to Portugal we will definitely be booking this property.

                                                              Lovely comfortable villa

                                                              We had a great welcome from the owner on arrival with a full tour of the villa, showing us how everything works, and how to contact them at anytime of the day. The villa has everything you could need, plus some more extra touches. We have stayed in many villas in the Algarve over the years, and this one was the best. We felt so relaxed from the moment we arrived. The villa is very convenient for the town of Olhao which is only a ten minute drive. The pool was fantastic and still heated in late June. It was regularly cleaned, as was the villa by the maid service. Even though we contacted the owner only once for a simple question they offered to come around to see us, and we ended up having a nice talk about things to do in the area, which gave us some great ideas for the rest of our holiday. I would really recommend this villa for groups of all sizes, as there's plenty of room for all. Thanks for letting us into your villa, we had a terrific time, and hope to do it again next year.
