A car is not necessary. The distance from Faro airport is about 10 km and the railway station and the ferries are accessible on foot. Olhão is an old fishing town, spared by mass tourism, which has saved its charm till today. Experience the cubic Old Town with its many alleys and very narrow streets; here you can find the authentic Algarve - Portugal. For long, quiet walks or sunbathings you can take the ferry to the islands of Armona, Culatra ou Farol where dreamlike and often desert, sandy beaches wait for you. Quinta de Marim, a very interesting place to visit, is a natural reserve for plants and particularly bird's. Discover Olhão. You'Il love it.

Absolutely first class accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We discovered Olhao three years ago.

It is a delightfully unspoilt town wth easy access by boat and train to secluded islands and small towns along the Eastern Algarve.

Although the detailed description of Casa Formosa is accurate it cannot describe the level of cleanliness, standard of maintenance or the high quality of fixtures and fittings that is immediately apparent when you enter the spacious building.

There are a large selection of cafes and restaurants with easy access to markets, artisan bakers and supermarkets nearby - something for everyone!

The owners are delightful individuals for whom nothing is too much trouble to ensure a good customer experience. We would have no hesitation in recommending this accommodation and are returning ourselves in 2017.

Casa Formosa Olhao

  • 5 of 5

I have just spent a very relaxing week in Casa Formosa with my Fiancee and 7 year old Son. The apartment is ideally located in the centre of town and is fully equipped with all that you need for a relaxing & comfortable stay.

Lina & Jorg are lovely kind people and welcomed us very warmly to their beautiful home. I highly recommend a stay here if you plan to visit Olhao.

Top class luxury apartment

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed in Olhao on numerous occasions in the last ten years,this is the best accommodation we have experienced.Everything is top quality,so much thought has gone into providing all needs for guests.The location is perfect,whilst in the centre of the old town, it is so quiet on an evening.

Linda and Jorg are so friendly and helpful.We will certainly return. Jan and Alan.

First Class Apartment in Olhao

  • 5 of 5

Three of us stayed here and found the apartment to be very spacious and beautifully presented. It was very clean and well equipped with a very large roof terrace which would be fantastic in the warmer weather. The bedrooms and bathrooms were first class. The owners, Jorg and Lina, were very friendly and explained everything to us. The apartment is very close to everything, including a bakery, the indoor markets, a supermarket, shops and various cafes and restaurants. It was about a 15 minute walk to the train station and slightly further to an indoor shopping centre. We would have no hesitation in recommending the apartment.

Geweldig mooi appartment

  • 5 of 5

Normaal neem ik nooit de moeite om een review te schrijven, maar dit appartement is in een woord geweldig.

Nog mooier dan de foto's en veel groter dan verwacht, ook omdat we het kleinere appartement erbij hadden geboekt omdat we met 6 personen waren. Was achteraf zelfs niet perse nodig geweest.

Hoge plafonds, alles stijlvol ingericht en in zeer goede (nieuwe) staat.

Lokatie kan eigenlijk niet beter: midden in t voetgangersdeel van t oude centrum, op minder dan 150 meter van de beide markten en de haven.

De eigenaren zijn ook zeer vriendelijk. Zij spreken Duits maar ook redelijk Engels (en Portugees natuurlijk).

Beautiful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment must be one of the most beautiful apartments we have stayed in. So well equipped with luxurious rooms. Very big apartment with a beautiful sun terrace that looks on to the lovely square. The restaurants very close as well as the fish and fruit market. Jorg and Lina are a lovely couple and very friendly. We were sad to leave......Antonio & Elizabet
