Outstanding 2 bedroom apartment ideally located in the heart of the historic district and the pedestrian area, 2 minutes from the seafront.
Recently renovated with respect for the soul and the special cubist architecture of the city of Olhão.
It consists of a living room, two bedrooms, a bathroom, and an amazing kitchen that opens onto the very large private terrace with its heated jacuzzi and its superb panoramic view of the whole city.
Air conditioning, WIFI, Smart TV, high quality services.

The space
With the current situation, it is the right time to treat yourself with a heaven of happiness and relaxation in a preserved piece of paradise.
Offer you a break, smile again and take time for yourself at last.
For a unique getaway, come and enjoy the sea breeze, the scent of orange blossoms and the sweetness of the spring sunshine in an exceptional setting at a very gentle price!
I decided to decorate this apartment in a subtle and discreet style to create a wellness area and a bubble a little out of time, located just a few meters from the lively little streets, shops, restaurants and markets of the largest fishing port in the Algarve and the Ria Formosa.

All this is combined with today's comfort, with quality beds and reversible air conditioning in all rooms.

The kitchen, a room in its own right, is accessible via the interior staircase. It offers a superb panoramic view of the whole city and opens directly onto the very large terrace. It is fully equipped with oven, hob, microwave, fridge-freezer, dishwasher (because we have other things to do on holiday ...), espresso machine (Dolce Gusto) and much more. It allows you to fully enjoy the softness and sunshine of the Algarve, both in winter and summer. You will spend unforgettable days and evenings, comfortably installed in the sofas of the terrace or amidst the bubbles and lights of the Jacuzzi always at the right temperature.

In winter, a heated sunshade ensures the same level of comfort, although the temperature rarely drops below 10 degrees at night.

It's also a time to rediscover memories with Pac-Man, Super Mario, Mario Kart, The Legend of Zelda, Mega Man, Donkey Kong, F-Zero and all the others in the Nintendo Classic for fun games at aperitif time in front of a big screen.

Sheets, towels, bath towels and bathrobes are provided: all the comforts of a luxury guesthouse. A laundry room on the terrace has a washing machine and dryer to make your life easier. The apartment is also prepared with all the necessary for your first continental breakfast :-)

No need for a car to go shopping, eat in the restaurant, enjoy the Ria Formosa and access the beaches of the beautiful islands of Culatra, Farol and Armona.

The apartment is particularly suitable for two couples or a family with children.

High quality facilities, Wi-Fi, Nintendo console, Smart TV 55" 4K, Faro airport 15 minutes away, Olhão train station 10 minutes on foot.

Where you’ll be

Olhão, Faro, Portugal

The apartment is located in the heart of the historical centre of Olhão: the Baixa; 2 minutes from the seafront promenade.

Olhão is historically the largest fishing port in the Algarve. This can still be seen today with its superb red brick market built by Eiffel, open every morning and which offers directly from the producers all the freshest seafood, as well as locally grown fruit and vegetables.

Olhão, the cubist city has had an Arab influence for several centuries, and the Baixa is reminiscent of the medina of Marrakech. It has a truly unique soul and architecture, made up of flat-roofed houses and small streets where it is delightful to stop at a terrace for lunch or just to have a drink or go shopping in the many small shops. Situated to the east of Faro, the town has kept its authenticity and has been able to resist the all too frequent concreting a few dozen kilometres further west.

Olhão is in the heart of the Ria Formosa. This lagoon, which extends over 60 km, is a delight for nature lovers. It is the largest bird reserve in Europe, located on the migration route. Just look up to admire the many nests of storks that nest and raise their young.

Being located in a lagoon, there is no beach directly in Olhao, which has helped to preserve the city from mass industrial tourism. But for a few euros and in a few minutes, the water-bus will take you to spend the day or the afternoon on the sublime beaches of the small islands of Culatra, Farol and Armona, totally preserved, where kilometers of fine sand await you to feel alone in the world!

J'ai la passion des belles choses, du soleil, de la mer et des grands espaces en liberté. J'ai énormément voyagé, vécu plein de cultures et d'échanges, ramené beaucoup de souvenirs et d'objets. Je vis maintenant près d'Olhão, un petit bout de paradis tout au sud du Portugal. J'y ai découvert la gentillesse de ses habitants, le charme adorable de la ville et de la région, la beauté sauvage de la Ria Formosa et de ses iles et aussi son soleil qui illumine ma vie toute l'année et que je veux vous faire partager!
