The Algarve region

Olhão is a major port and actually the largest fishing port in the Algarve. It is full of character with Moorish-style houses.

Olhão itself doesn't have a beach as it is on the Ria Formosa lagoon system but the ferries for the islands run from the quayside near the gardens at the eastern end of the market halls. There are regular services throughout the year, although fewer in number during the winter.

Ilha da Culatra is surrounded by beautifully clear water, with many species of fish, so it is perfect for diving and snorkelling. Ilha do Farol is not a separate island, but the area at the western end of Culatra where the lighthouse is ('Farol' meaning 'lighthouse' in Portuguese) and again offers visitors a large expanse of sand and warm water. Ilha da Armona, the closest ilha to Olhão, has a few restaurants and holiday chalets and large expanses of golden sand for a very relaxing day at the beach!

Faro airport is approximately 20 minutes drive. Car hire is not necessary. Olhao is on the coastal road EN125 and has good access to the motorway. 10/15 minutes walk to Olhão train station. Regular trains and buses for the rest of the Algarve coast and Lisbon (via Faro). Daily bus service to Seville in Spain.


Olhão has a superb local character with a strong Moorish influence, as yet untouched by tourism. A must see is the local market just a short walk from the apartment on the water front where you can pick up freshly caught fish everyday (except Sunday). Next to the fish market is the indoor produce, meat and cheese market. British and foreign newspapers are available in news stands. It is a large town with plenty of restaurants, particularly specializing in seafood. The new shopping complex (Ria Shopping) has 80 small shops, a large supermarket, restaurants/bars and a cinema. There are several supermarkets within walking distance of the apartment.

"Great Apartment"

Great apartment with everything you need for a great stay a real home from home, Will definitely recommend this apartment

"A little piece of Paradise in Olhao"

Just back from our second holiday to Olhao. What a wonderful place. Stayed at the Village Marina Complex, a ground floor apartment. The roomy apartment was adequate to all our needs. Space/ modern facilities, everything one need including the much needed hairdryer. The caretakers Mike and Mary collected and returned us to the airport, with a little tour of the town thrown in. They couldn't have been more helpful in every way. The location of the complex, while beside the modern Village Marina Hotel is just down from the local market, shops and restaurents. No car is required. We took daily boat trips between the beautiful islands of Armona, Culatra and Farol.Its a little bit like going back in time to peace, tranquility and absolute relaxation. I would have no hesitation in recommending this accommodation to anyone and I will definitely make a return journey to this complex. Out of 10/10

"Everything we needed - excellent"

The apartment is situated in a convenient position for town, the supermarkets and for daily excursions which take place in Olhao, and the cleanliness of the apartment was second to none - it is obviously well cared for. It is also well equipped with everything you need for your stay, we ate in most nights and were able to cook comfortably in the well-appointed kitchen. The apartment was also much larger than we had expected so offers more than comfortable accommodation for families. The roof top pool is a big hit with kids and adults alike, offering several sun loungers as well as an ideal family-sized pool. If you are going to eat out, we would strongly recommend visiting the neighbouring Real Marina Hotel & Spa. We went for breakfast two mornings of our stay and had a really fantastic classy all-you-can-eat style breakfast with champagne(!) all for £12.50 per person, with my three-year-old sister eating for free. Dinner offered exceptional food and service at a more than reasonable price. We wouldn't hesitate to go back to this apartment as we were really very impressed with all it had to offer. We look forward to being able to return.

"Nice and cosy"

Nice apartment with all the thing you'll need to a perfect and peaceful vacations. The rooftop pool is a wonderful diversion for adults and children. Very good location. You can fish on the pear, or go by boat to beautiful sunny beaches, or go to the best fish market on Algarve, on a 5 minute walk. Lots of fish restaurants and modern commercial malls. Many options on the city that keeps alive the Algarve true spirit. We love it very much.

"Lovely clean modern apartment"

Very nice spacious apartment. Easy walk to local bars and restaurants - all on the flat. Great to visit the local islands by boat.

We have rented properties all over the world and this apartment is fantastic. Everything has been thought of. There are two very big bedrooms two bathrooms and a beautiful lounge plus a FULLY fitted kitchen. It is only a few minutes stroll from all the action and there is a huge choice of places to eat .The owners are a delight to deal with full of info and always get back to you asap. Also Simon who met us on arrival is a great guy and very helpful.If we could give this place more than 5 stars we would. Thank you Lynn and Andrew. We hope to be back soon . Carole and Don.

"Excellent, spotless apartment within easy walking distance to local amenities"

Ferry ride to Islands of Armona, La Cultra and Farol are great, very good Beaches on far side of Islands of Cultra and Farol. Children enjoyed jumping off the pier on Armona. Both Markets worth a visit, plenty of cafe's and restaurants nearby. In Olhao would recommend Docca Pizza's, on the front. We didn't need a car, plenty to do for a week Weather great, too hot middle of the day, so find a bar to chill out in. Owners and representatives at the apartment very helpful.

"Great Apartment - great location!"

We stayed for one week in this fantastic apartment in Olhao. The apartments are really new, with everything you could want - lovely kitchens and bathrooms (great showers), a balcony and a nice little pool + sun loungers on the roof. The air conditioning is really good too so we were able to keep nice and cool. The area was really great - a much less touristy area than the west Algarve - which meant the restaurants were really good value. There are islands that can be reached by ferry in about 20-30 minutes with truly amazing beaches which were very quiet even on a beautiful Saturday in august. The owners of the apartment were very helpful providing lots of information about the area and promptly responding to any queries. I would recommend this apartment and area - and would definitely return here in the future!

"Outstanding accommodation, near to beautiful beaches."

This apartment was oustanding - everything we needed including beach towels was provided. The local beaches- you get there by ferry- were beautiful. The local people were very friendly and eating out was very good value.

"Ideal Location for a relaxing break away"

This apartment is great value for money with all your home comforts. Short walk from the beach front and numerous restaurants that Olhao has to offer. Great roof top pool to take in the sun. Fabulous service from the owners would highly recommend and will definitely return. Thank you
