Casa do Carolas is a fabulous apartment right in the heart of the old fishing town of Olhao in the East Algarve.
A wonderful relaxed location an unspoiled you really will sample local life here. The East Algarve has beautiful beaches, scenery and an abundance of things to do.
Olhao is a busying and lively fishing port and very much still in action today. The front has a beautiful park area and Marina to take a leisurely stroll to the world famous daily fish a fresh produce markets. These building are the hub of the town and always buzzing with action. Sample the freshly grown produce and check out the catch of the day in the fish market. My favourite time to go is Saturday mornings when he farmers come down from the hills and all around the market building you will find the farmers market with fresh fruit and veg plus an fabulous election of locally made produce. Sit and have a coffee in one of the cafes and watch the hive of activity go on around you.
In contrast the capital City of the Algarve, Faro is a beautiful place to vista with a walled city giving magnificent view out to sea. Then take a walk around the small cobbled street and indulge in an ice-cream and some great shopping.
Not to be missed Tavira is an ancient Roman City simply steeped in history, divided by the river Gilau it is a wonderful place to visits, enjoy the stunning architecture and take a cool drink in one of the many pavement cafes.

The islands at Olhao are amazing and each one offers a different beach experience. make sure you check them all out and then decide which one is your favourite!
