On the islands there are a few restaurants to choose from where you might even spot the locals collecting shellfish from the fertile sands.

Next door to the complex is 5* hotel. The hotel facilities are available but you would be required to book in advance.

Faro Airport is a 20 min drive and there is ample parking at the complex if you wish to hire a car . This way you can also discover the nearby historical towns of Tavira or even pop over to Spain to see the beautiful city of Seville. The Algarve has something for everyone whether you wish to keep the children amused at the waterparks or Zoomarine or enjoy a show at the Casino or just visit the fantastic beaches along the coastline.

A great apartment that meets all your expectations

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for ten days this apartment it is a two bedroom, two bath with air conditioning, wifi and a roof pool. The air conditioning is essential especially in August. The apartment was clean, comfortable with a fully equipped kitchen, living and dining area, great for families with a Lidl close by and the most amazing array of sea food available.

From the apartment you are about a five minute walk from the sea front where you catch the ferry to the most beautiful beaches of Farol where you can spend your days lazying in the sunshine.

Ohalo is a fishing port and the whole village encompasses the sea, Restruants are plentiful but for more authentic dishes try the side streets to expereince exactly what the locals eat.. Amazing.

Boat trips and days trips are accessible from the marina but try to go early morning as it gets really hot in the afternoon.

There is not a buzzing night life this is a coastal town but at night the Marina does host a number of musical events and locals and tourists enjoy this together.

Great apartment lovely location

  • 5 of 5

We booked an airport transfer and were not disappointed we were welcomed with a lady holding a card with our family name on and were outside our apartment within 20 minutes €35 well worth it.

We sent a number of emails to owner and had a quick response every time.

We was welcomed by a lovely mother and son that could not help us enough settling in.

Apartment was clean and had all appliances what we wanted for a week stay there were two supermarkets a short walk away and one in the main town.

Only things I would recommend for improvements would be some shade on the balcony and round the swimming pool.

Overall a great stay and would go back again

Great family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We spent a great week at this very new and clean apartment. The apartment was exactly as described with everything provided to have a great holiday.

The location at the end of the sea front was superb. Two supermarkets are within 10 minutes walk on the main road. Along the sea front and in the old town are more restaurants than days in your holiday. The fish and vegetable /meat markets are five minutes walk away and the selection is amazing.

We were in Olhao during the Festival de Marisco (Seafood Festival) which provided even more dining choice and great music. I recommend taking the ferry out to the islands, we went to Farol which has amazing beaches (4 euro return).

The ideal holiday home for any family

  • 5 of 5

We had the opportunity of spending 10 days in this apartment this August and it was more than we had bargained for. Not only was everything as described to us but we found it was right in the centre of things - restuarants, supermarkets, fish and vegetable markets, boat trips, etc all within walking distance from the apartment where everything was new. The rooftop also provided some amazing panoramic views especially in the evenings. Highly recommended

Apartamento muito quente. Localização boa. Serviço de assistência profissional.

  • 2 of 5

O apartamento é muito quente, tal como o prédio, tornando-se desagradável. Ar condicionado tem que estar sempre ligado, inclusive à noite, sob pena de se dormir mal com o calor.

A localização é boa, a casa está bem equipada e a assistência é muito profissional.

Não sei se volto...

Olhão is the largest fishing port in the Algarve and is full of character with Moorish-style houses. The famous fish & shellfish market is surrounded by pavement cafes and restaurants and it is from the quayside near the market gardens that you can catch the regular ferry boat to the beautiful beaches on the islands of Armona & Culatra.

llha da Culatra is surrounded by beautifully clear water, with many species of fish, so it’s perfect for swimming and snorkelling. Ilha da Armona, the closest island to Olhão, has a few restaurants and holiday chalets and large expanses of golden sand for a very relaxing day at the beach.

During the summer season there are hourly ferry boats that take you to the island beach (return trip costs approx. €3 to 5 euros) and all year around there are private taxi boats available to take & pick you from the most beautiful & secluded beach spots.

In the historic heart of Olhão many of the buildings are the elegant merchant's homes with wrought iron balconies, carved stonework and tile decorations.

At the centre of the town is the church of Nossa Senhora do Rosário, built in 1698 when it was the first stone building in Olhão, and the chapel of Nossa Senhora da Soledade which is 17th century and the original church of the then fishing village of Olhão.

Olhão offers a great base for your holiday and as it is not a traditional tourist resort your euros will go much further especially in the fantastic restaurants where a full meal for two with wine would be in the region of 25 euros.

Nearby there is the beautiful Roman town of Tavira centred along the River Gil that splits the town in two or going in the opposite direction you have Faro, the capital of the Algarve. Both are approx 20 min drive and offer great shopping, and a mix of old and new with the modern Marina that lies in Faro next to the Old Town.

As Olhão lies close to the Spanish border a highly recommended day out is to the fantastic city of Seville . With outstanding architecture at every turn the best way to see the city is in a traditonal horse and carriage. You will need an early start to see the Maria Luisa Park, Plaza da Espana, the largest Gothic Cathedral in the world plus the gardens of the Royal Alcazar Palace.
