Olhao is a small town, 8 km from Faro, Algarve capital, and 12 km from the airport. It still keeps the spirit of an old fishermen village.
Local people, very connected with the fishing world, are blended with foreign residents and sporadic visitors. They are attracted to the weather, the outstanding beaches and nature, and also because of the authentic flavour of the area.
The house is located in the historical downtown, just a few steps from the famous Fruit and Fish Markets, from supermarkets and restaurants/bars área.
You will find the typical products in the markets, seafood, fish, kitchen garden products and local fruit, and you can taste the rich regional cuisine at nearby restaurants. Or you can try to cook it in a well-equipped kitchen (barbeque included).
The house is also few minutes far from gardens, promenade, docks and piers for the nearby islands.
Also about 10 minutes from the train station where you can take the train to Faro, Fuzeta beach (10 mins) and to Tavira (20 mins).
The apartment corresponds to the ground floor of a historical building where a renowned local celebrity was born and whose name is given to the street.
The apartement has been recently refurbished with simple and modern lines, keeping the original structure and vaulted ceilings 3,5meters high.
The new window frames, with double glazing and polyamide thermal break, allow a good sound insulation and reinforce the cool environment of the house. So the house did not really needs air conditioning.
Located at ground floor level, the apartment consists of a pátio, a living-room, two bedrooms, one with double bed and another with two single beds, one bathroom and kitchen
with all amenities and fully furnished.
Parking near the house is free and relatively easy. However, because of excellent location, car trips can be avoided.
Olhão is a completely flat city. Cycling is an alternative used by local people and also by tourists.
Two NEW CITY bikes are available in the house.
We also have a small fishing boat (see photo).
We may combine a tour on the Ria Formosa.
