About the property

A delightful whitewashed cottage with two bedrooms and glorious roof terrace.

Casa do Gaibeu really is a wonderful little whitewashed cottage right in the heart of the old town Olhao. Situated right on one of the little cobbled streets but in a quiet relaxing and restful area. Upon entering the house through the front door the cottage opens out into a pleasant open plan space with a small galley style kitchen, comfortable sofas, wardrobe space and a cool and comfortable space.

Geweldig gelegen gerenoveerd vissershuisje

  • 5 of 5

Als je op zoek bent naar een eigen huis in een stedelijke omgeving is dit smaakvol gerenoveerde vissershuis in Olhão een uitstekende bestemming. Dit huis heeft voldoende comfort voor een aangenaam verblijf zonder overdreven luxe. Op de twee dakterrassen kun je genieten van het uitzicht of van de verfrissende buitendouche. Op de eerste verdieping zijn er twee slaapkamers. De masterbedroom heeft een eigen badkamer en daarnaast is er nog aparte badkamer. Beneden is de eenvoudig ingerichte woonkeuken.

Alles in Olhão is op loopafstand, de geweldige vis- en groentemarkt, restaurants en winkels. Met de ferry, trein of fiets (kun je huren bij Seahorse bikerental) kom je overal, en kun je de auto laten staan.

Olhão is geen toeristische trekpleister maar heeft veel charme en staat vol met bijzondere huizen. Het strand van Ilha do Farol is een van de mooiste van de oostelijke Algarve, maar een fietstochtje naar het kleine strand van Fuseta is minstens zo bijzonder.

Als je iets anders wilt dan een appartement in een groot onpersoonlijk vakantiecomplex is dit echt een aanrader.

Casa do Gaibeu 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 busy 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 fins 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 East Algarve has some of the most beautiful beaches, often islands accessed via a ferry they are miles of golden sand lapped by crystal blue waters. 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!

The golf on offer in the East is exceptional with some truly fantastic courses in some amazing locations. Benamor Golf near tavira offers some excellent packages. There is also the sister courses Quinta da Ria and Quinta da Cima offering versatility for the keen golfer. Castro Marim and Quinta do Vale offer challenging golf with glorious views across the Guadiana river to Spain.

A short drive up the coast opens up some great family activity days, including some amazing watermarks, zoos, crazy golf and much more for the family.
