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.

Firstly, the owner Hortense couldn’t do enough to make our stay as enjoyable as possible and explained that if we needed anything to contact her as she lived nearby. She came to see how the holiday was going a few times during our stay, which was great if we needed to ask any questions about trips etc, she even took us to the supermarket on our first day. The villa was furnished to a very high standard and had everything we needed and more; all the rooms were a good size and spotlessly clean. The TV in the lounge had hundreds of channels, all in English. Outside, the villa was surrounded by a beautiful garden and was very private; it even had an electric front gate. The long driveway lead to a large garage which turned out to be the games room which contained: a pool table, table tennis, mini football and a running machine. But the highlight of the holiday had to be the huge swimming pool which we used every day. There was a small restaurant next door which was also the contact office for other villas in the area where we were able to book in for breakfast and other meals during our stay. We were also able to order a selection of items to takeaway such as baguettes, water, ice creams and pizzas and the staff were always very helpful, even though the villa is not part of their group. During our stay we didn’t have a car but used local taxis which could take up to 6 people and were reasonably priced as a short trip to the marina in Olhao was only €10. The marina had many bars, restaurants and boat trips and even had a local market. The taxis were very good but if you want to travel a lot during your stay, we would recommend hiring a car. Thank you for a relaxing and family friendly holiday; we hope to be back again soon. The Turners and Jenkins family.

Miguel has left nothing to chance it has all amenities you need. HDTV has hdmi and usb (handy if you take some movies or music on a stick) just plug in and away you go. Also has good sat(mainly Portuguese) and wi-fi. The roof pool is great all day sun. Supermarkets(LIDL) 5 mins and bars 5-10 mins walking distance. Brits need a teapot though(was not a problem). Air con a dream. All in all a great property . Pedro who met us was most helpful and we also had a welcome pack of food in the fridge (bread, t-bags,milk,sugar,etc) I would recommend this property to anyone.

The apartment really had all the luxury we needed; a good air-conditioning, a private jacuzzi, a washing machine, dishwasher, a good freezer, even a big TV. There's a spacious pool, for who doesn't want to be in the jacuzzi all the time. The village has the shops needed and it's easy and fast to visit the beach. The owner is super friendly and always helpful, gave tips about restaurants. All was excellent.
