The Algarve region
The Eastern Algarve is for those who love Portugal of old and wish to enjoy the food and lifestyle with the Portuguese.The coast forms part of the world famous Ria Formosa Natural Park, a lagoon system with its headquarters in Olhao. There are beatiful and unspoilt beaches on the islands of Armona and Culatra accessed by ferries from Olhao, as well as Tavira Island with ferries from Fuseta and Tavira.
Olhao is an historic town with Roman and moorish influences, seen in the cubist style of its traditional houses. Olhao is also an important fishing port and has probably the best fish and fresh produce markets in Portugal. The Ria Formosa is an important area for shellfish and salt production.
Olhao as a working fishing port has some of the best shellfish and fish dishes in the algarve, with fish straight from the boats and many good restaurants doing the produce full justice. The historic centre of Olhao, which is close to our apartment is great for wandering through the alleyways and passageways whilst taking in the historical buildings and maybe stopping for a dring or snack whilst taking in therelaxing atmosphere.
In August there is the famous festival dos mariscos which presents an amazing display of seafood for your consumption all accompanied by Portuguese and international music . There are many other events on the waterfront or in the new and impressive Auditorium which has regular music, dance and theatre events of a very high standard.
The beaches are on the unspoilt islands off Olhao and are reached by regular ferries to Armona, Culatra and Farol . the sand is white soft and endless and the sea is clean warm and clear.
The Ria Formosa area is famous for its bird life and many varieties can be seen on walks in the area or on boat trips in the Ria. Transport is good for exploring by train or bus and there are many interesting towns to be explored in the area.

"Clean, spacious and well equipped flat in ideal location with very helpful owners."
We had a great time in this lovely, modern flat which is very well situated for seeing the town of Olhao on foot and the area around by train , bus or the ferries to thebeautiful unspoilt beaches on the islands. There is no need to hire a car. You can also use the train to get to Tavira, and Faro and the Spanish border town of Villa Real. We made good use of the huge terraces for relaxing on the loungers or for a glass or two of the lovely wines and beers, where we also eat breakfast.
We found there are many restaurants in Olhao in walking distance which provide excellent food, especially seafood at very reasonable prices, and we really enjoyed the slow pace of life and wandering round Olhao stopping for the odd beer or coffee and cakes. It gave us a real flavour of Portuguese life.
The owners met us on arrival at the flat, were very helpful and provided us with lots of local knowledge.

"Excellent central apartment"
Great central apartment. Very spacious for 2/3 people, very well equipped with a large wrap around terrace for sunbathing and cooking on the BBQ. Although in the centre of town the apartment block itself was very quiet. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting an Olhao town centre stay.
