Geweldig huis midden in het Portugese leven.
Wij zijn 11 dagen in Olhao geweest en hebben een heerlijke tijd gehad. Een fijn ruim huis en echt Portugees, heerlijk. Alles wat je nodig hebt op vakantie is aanwezig. Je zit heel dicht overal bij en er is genoeg te doen. De bootjes naar de prachtige eilanden waar je mooie lange wandelingen kunt maken. Veel restaurantjes in de buurt, heerlijk gegeten. De markthallen zijn ook zeer de moeite waard. Gaan zeker weer heen.
Olhão is a port city located in the heart of the Ria Formosa Nature Reserve. It is the largest port in the Algarve and also has the best beaches on the Armona, Culatra and Farol islands. Olhão is also the most original city in the Algarve with its cubist houses in Arab style and markets. The city is also characterized by its typical and excellent fish, seafood and churrasco bars and restaurants.
Olhão has its life centered on the river and the sea and in the historical part of the city with its rectangular buildings and cobbled streets, fishermen still live today.
The entrances to the markets are surrounded by cafes and it is a very pleasant place to rest and enjoy the view of the moored boats. In the markets you can buy fish, vegetables and fruit, meat and fresh cheeses.
Olhão is also an excellent starting point for those who wish to discover the Algarve either by car or by means of public transport. The train line runs from the tip of the Cape of Sagres in the West to the border with Spain in the East. Olhão is only 50 km from the border with Spain and there is a direct bus to Seville.
Recommended visits to Moncarapacho (7 km) near Cerro de San Miguel and Cerro da Cabeca which has some of the most wonderful views of the Algarve.
Walks and walks along the Ria Formosa, considered one of the seven natural wonders of Portugal and natural and cultural heritage. In the channels of the Ria Formosa there is an enormous biodiversity being mandatory passage of thousands of migratory birds between North Africa and Europe. There is also a large quantity of fish and shellfish that represent an important source of economic performance for fishermen and shellfish fishers.
Boat trips to watch birds, dolphins and whales.
Beaches of the islands Armona, Culatra and Farol. The boats for the islands leave the promenade of the promenade and it is fantastic to enjoy this boat ride along the Ria and the immaculate and almost deserted beaches of fine sand of the islands.
