This is a lovely typical portuguese town with fish and vegetable markets at it's centre. Look up and you see storks roosting in all the chimney pots. Everyday we see at least one fly over our house while we are on the balcony. The house is close to all shops, restaurants and bars serving fresh sea food and tapas. We really like the O Bote - you can chose the actual fish that they will cook for you. Every Saturday is a farmers market with locally grown produce. Ferries visit the local islands which are very beautiful and free from traffic. The beaches are clean and water clear. The trip to Armona take 10 minutes, to Culatra and Farol it takes 30 minutes, both journeys are fascinating and you see many storks. We recommend Rui's restaurant on Culatra - the clams are amazing. Alison and Derick will tell you the rest.
This is a small friendly town and the house sits not far from the centre on one of the many cobbled streets. When festivals are on you can hear the buzz of the town from the house. Normally all night life stops at 11-12pm.

Hello, I am Helen, I am English and I love being in Olhão - it feels like the most authentic place I have ever been too. We love swimming and go to the islands everyday on the boats and we have swam from April to November. We also love the sea food and the markets. But even more than this we love the people - they are relaxed, kind, honest and so friendly and that creates such a lovely atmosphere for our holidays :)
