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!

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.

Excellent communication with the owner throughout. It is exactly as listed, the rooms are open and spacious ensuring a home from home feel. It is clean and well maintained and we really appreciated the broadband and Sky TV - the Olympics were on during our visit so it was nice to keep up to date with events. We particularly enjoyed the island visits with Amora being our top venue. Think unspoiled beaches, it felt like the Maldives - heaven. We hired bikes for a few hours in the cool of the evening and cycled out to the Natural Park which was awash with sea birds and inland species (a real twitchers delight - maybe take binoculars if this is your thing). A walk around the Ria Formosa is a revelation - flamingos, millions of Fiddler Crabs scuppering for cover in the mud banks, salt flats drying out and being processed. It really is a fascinating ever changing landscape. When we were there the annual Shellfish Festival took place so consider the timing of your holiday if fishy food is your bag. Think freshly cooked shell/fish, live bands and a real community spirit as locals and tourists came together to eat at long trestle tables and enjoy the atmosphere. Our favourite restaurants were Steak and Co for meats and Emotions for a yummy breakfast or club sandwich - The staff were very friendly despite working long hours and made a special effort to ask us about our day and if we were enjoying Portugal. Handily they were the closest venues to the apartment so it was easy to sway our way home after a fine gin (hubby) or lovely sav blanc (me). If you prefer tapas I would recommend Bar 62 - there was a very nice selection especially if you are not a fish lover. This is not a clubbin' it venue but a more 'mature take time to people watch and enjoy a live band' kind of location. If you want lively bars and 4am finishes I would consider somewhere else. If like us you are happy to chat, watch the world go by, enjoy a more authentic Portuguese experience then Olhao would be an ideal location. Ensure you take to your walking shoes and investigate the old town... fascinating tiled buildings and narrow cobbled streets. A photographers delight. Faro is close by and has a plethora of modern shops, cinema with English movies and every kind of eatery you could wish for. All in all we had two weeks of wall to wall sunshine and the roof top pool to ourselves!

The apartment was very large and spacious with a big balcony and a view of the sea. I was a bit concerned about the proximity to the railway line but the trains are so few it wasn't a problem. The apartment was well equipped. There had been water damage to one of the bedrooms but as it wasn't needed it wasn't a problem. We have stayed in Olhao several times and I would happily return to this property again.
