Make a self catering villa in Pechao, Portugal your home away from home

Many people visit the Algarve for the beaches but there is so much more to enjoy here. Faro Island is just across the causeway at low tide, and the Islands of Olhao are just a ferry ride away. There are plenty of outdoor sports, historic attractions and charming fishing towns nearby.

The area is full of white washed houses and ancient towns, each with beautiful churches and museums. Staying in Pechao is a step back in time and the ideal way to enjoy it at your own pace is from a self catering villa.

Things to do in Pechao, Portugal

Your self catering villa is just a short drive from the beaches at Faro and Fuseta. Enjoy the perfect sands and safe bathing or take a stroll along the seashore.

Bird Watching - Drive down to the Ria Formosa lagoon, a 17,000 hectare national park which is home to hundreds of different species of birds especially during the spring and autumn as they migrate.

There are several top class golf courses within half an hour’s drive of your villa in Pechao. Look for Quinta do Lago and Vale de Lobo luxury developments. With a perfect climate and beautiful scenery it is a great way to enjoy the very best of the Algarve.

Places to visit near Pechao, Portugal

Olhao is still the local fishing village that it always was and you can still see the fisherman unloading their catch or mending their nets. There is also an excellent local market here every day which sells local fresh produce. In the evenings during the summer there is plenty of local entertainment along the seafront and a museum, cinema and plenty of local fish restaurants.

The ancient walled city of Faro is a delightful place to explore. Once a trading port, it has seen several invasions and has both Arab and Roman ruins. Make sure you visit the 13th century Cathedral in the square and the beautiful Episcopal Palace nearby. The golden church of Nossa Senhora do Carmo certainly lives up to its name with wonderful gold leaf woodwork.

During the summer there is entertainment near the marina, and just outside the town there is a shopping centre and multiplex cinema showing films in English.

The nearby village of Estoi has the remains of a Roman villa which enjoyed surprisingly modern home comforts for its time!

The descriptions given from both Dr. Mitchell and the other reviews are extremely accurate, the supermarket, shops and rail within 5 mins and the seafront a pleasant 15 min walk away. We found this a light bright top floor apartment (with lift) and a fabulous big balcony where we enjoyed the sun all day. Dr. Mitchell was very helpful, both online before our visit including arranging a taxi to meet us at the airport, and in person when we met him at the apartment and during our stay. A great holiday location.

                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      Apartment Salinas is situated in the Marina Village Complex, Olhao, in the block closest to the bend of Avenida de Outubro, overlooking the lagoons of the Formosa. We found it a smart and comfortable place to stay and chose it in preference to others as, having visited the area before, we knew that in the afternoon the sun would be on the balcony until sundown. Even in the last week of November we were able to sit out in warm pleasant sunshine for four afternoons for a few hours. There other apartments just as well situated in the complex and would strongly recommend you look at the photographs provided to check the view from the balcony shots, if you can see the Formosa clearly and unobstructed, you will get the sun in the afternoons. We were met on time by a Mars Algarve representative and shown around. There are plenty of restaurants along the front of Olhao, most serving fish and steaks, and there are pasta/pizza restaurants too. It's fairly cheap to eat out, we averaged 40/50 euros for 2 main courses, wine and coffee, but if you want to eat in the food in the supermarkets, (meat/fish/veg), is relatively cheap to buy, and wine too, we bought a 5 litre box for under 5 euros and as it's a local Portuguese product it's very drinkable, all the locals buy it. There are several main stores, Lidl a 5 min walk and Pingo in town a bit further. A smaller local shop is also a few minutes away, just walk up the road to the side of the Police station and turn right before the little bar on the corner. There isn't an immediate beach in Olhao, you need to catch a ferry out to the islands, a few euros each way taking about 15/20mins. We hired a car from the airport this time, but if you don't want to, it Is just as cheap to get a taxi to and from the resort and then catch the train along the cost if you want to visit the other towns. We've done this before and it's a good way of getting about. We have previously stayed in the complex in apartments managed by the Real Marina Residence/Hotel and although the Salinas was a little more expensive to book for the week, the comfort levels in the lounge and bedrooms was far superior and would recommend this apartment in preference, we have already booked flights to return in March next year.
