The Algarve / East Algarve region
The Eastern Algarve is the lesser known area of the Algarve and for this reason remains unspoilt. With a near perfect climate, the beautiful coastline offers miles of unspoilt beaches and the stunning landscape changes from season to season offering carpets of wild flowers and orange blossom in the spring.
The inland hills offer an insight into the old Algarve, with traditional cottages to see and cuisine to sample. The friendliness of the people, the mix of cultures and the local architecture all show influences of the Greeks, Romans and Muslims who populated the Algarve before the Portuguese conquest in 1249.
The Olhao / Village Marina area
Traditionally a fishing village, Olhão is famous for seafood and this can be experienced by a trip to one of the many wonderful seafood restaurants or by a visit to see the wonderful fish market in the historic market buildings right at the heart of old Olhão. The hustle and bustle of the old town with its many cafés, bars and restaurants is just a short walk from the apartment and, if you venture a little further into the old town you will discover a wealth of shops, boutiques, and a few more cafés tucked away to the side.
Olhão Marina is bursting full of yachts, motorboats and traditional fishing vessels, which provides a perfect backdrop to an evening stroll, or a brisk morning walk to get fresh bread. There is always something to see, and with many shaded seating areas for you to stop and enjoy the view and soak up the atmosphere.
The beautiful deserted sandy beaches of Olhão are on Ilha Culatra and Ilha Armona, and you can catch a ferry, or take a water taxi to the beach can be taken from right outside the apartment, although there is a slightly reduced service in winter. Armona island also has a couple of cafés and restaurants.
Olhão market is every Saturday, and there is a wonderful selection of fresh fruits and vegetables and fresh fish and seafood. You can visit to do some fresh food shopping or just to have a coffee and watch the world go by. Other markets in the area are worth visiting too, and a list of these and their dates will be available for you in the apartment information folder.
