About this location

The Algarve region

The Eastern Algarve is a more laid back area compared to it's western counterpart. The Area is truly Portuguese with stunning beaches, amazing food (and cheaper!) with friendly locals only too willing to help make your holiday as memorable as possible.

The beaches are slightly different to the Western side as there are not the same cliffs. However going to a beach in the Eastern Algarve is even more satisfying as miles and miles of beach are on the Ria Formosa, with each beach offering a different mode of transport to get to it. Ferries, boats, cars and even a small shuttle train, make your day at the beach an adventure if you so wish!

Whichever beach you go to, you will not be disappointed.

Golf courses, of cours, abound. You will never be far from some of the best golfing in the world.

The temperatures range from the mild and temperate to baking in the height of the summer.

All in all the Algarve has loads to offer families, couples and friends of all ages.

Village Marina

Olhao is a working fishing town, with daily fish and fresh food markets (apart from Sundays) which offer an array of freshly caught fish, alongside fresh fruit and vegetables, meat , cheeses and nuts. These markets are held in 2 building at the seafront which is really the focal point of the town. It is extremely busy every morning. A Saturday market is held along the quayside selling textiles and clothes. Trips from other areas are run in to the town to view these markets.

The seafront runs from the hotel along to the jetty where you can catch the boats to the island beaches. It is filled with fantastic restaurants selling the markets produce. In front of these overlooking the Marina are some excellent bars and cafes.

The ton is bustly, without being "full on" (There are no british bars in the town, well not when I wrote this)

The 5* hotel on the front which is part of the apartment complex has brought employment and tourism to the town. This has not developed in the same way as Albufeira, managing to retain its Portuguese flavour.

An annual week long Seafoofd Festival attracts thousands of visitors to Olhao. It is a culinary and artistic Festival celebrating the local seafood with nightly entertainment , with bands, singers and Fado.

Olhao is only 15-20 mins from Faro Airport, and car hire and taxis are readily available. It is also about 30 km from the Spanish Border, making an interesting day out.

Therefore Olhao offers a real Portuguese experience, which we feel ,really could not be bettered!
