The Algarve region
The Algarve has something for everyone, whether you wish to just relax on one of the many blue flag beaches or visit some of the local historical towns. There's also plenty to keep the children happy with a choice of Water or SeaLife Parks.
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 right 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.
If you are looking to sample the real Algarve, Olhão is the place. Faro Airport is only a 20 min drive and there is ample parking at the complex if you wish to hire a car .
This traditional town is famous for its Moorish influenced architecture , daily fresh fish market, restaurants, cafe's, bakeries and local shops.
The apartment is a 15 min walk to the old town and 10 min walk to the Marina, where you can catch the regular ferry boat service to the stunning islands of Culatra and Armona to enjoy a relaxing day on the beach.
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.
