Contemporary living in a superbly presented 3 bedroom 3 bathroom (2 ensuite) apt Nestled in the heart of a natural lagoon in the Ria Formosa National Park is the vibrant and bustling fishing town of Olhão. Away from the tourist hotspot of Albufeira, Olhão delivers a real slice of Portuguese charm whilst offering enough to give keep even the most seasoned tourist happy. From fine dining through to sardines on the sea front. Just a 15 minute drive ( taxi approx €20-25 each way ) from Faro airport you will find this luxury raised ground floor apartment with 3 bedrooms (2 x European King Size (160x200)) beds and 1 twin room with adult sized (90x200) single beds. There are luxury ensuite bathrooms for the King rooms and a separate private bathroom for the twin room. Please be aware that water is a precious ( and expensive ) commodity in the Algarve. Please be careful not to waste water. There is a hair dryer in each bedroom. Access to the apartment is via 7 steps. Terrace (with 3 doors to the lounge and 1 door to the kitchen ) has views of the Ria Formosa and shared rooftop pool with 10 sunloungers and terraces with 360° views of the Ria Formosa, the barrier islands, the towns of Olhão and Faro and, of course, the marvellous sunsets. There are usually 10 sunbeds available for guests use. The apartment has air conditioning and heating in all bedrooms and the very large lounge. (Jacaranda Apt is the largest of all the apartments in the Marina Village development.) In addition, all rooms save the kitchen have electric shutters for privacy and security. There is central vacuum. Each bedroom has a well sized built in wardrobe. The lounge has ample seating and dining space for 6 people and features a 55 inch LG Smart TV with Samsung Blu-Ray/DVD player (plus a few films). The TV has USB with an extension lead for easy access if you wish to bring your recorded programmes. There is a separate remote for navigating the Smart features such as YouTube. Amazon Prime is included. Just press the Amazon button on the TV remote for access. It has Internet TV which gives access to many International TV stations ( barring any Internet problems) such as UK, France, Spain, Germany, Italy, USA, Canada plus many International Sports and film channels. There is a rechargeable Bluetooth speaker ( JL Travel ) for connecting to your smart devices and also a Google Home which can answer many of your questions, play music, play UK radio, set alarms and timers, translate etc. The kitchen is fully equipped with built-in oven, hob, fridge/freezer, washer/dryer and dishwasher along with all necessary items for a self-catering holiday including plastic glasses for the pool area. The rooftop pool terrace (with toughened glass barriers surrounding) can be accessed by the main lifts outside the apartment. At roof level (5th floor), the swimming pool is accessed by a short flight of steps and there are also two or three steps leading into the pool itself with no handrail. Beach/pool towels are provided. There are 2 showers and a toilet for convenience. The apartment is in walking distance to an outside gym, the famous fish and vegetable markets, many restaurants/bars and the ferries to the nearby barrier islands. A car is not necessary. From Lonely Planet A short hop east of Faro, Olhão is the Algarve’s biggest fishing port, with an active waterfront and pretty, bustling lanes in its old quarters. There aren’t many sights, but the flat-roofed, Moorish-influenced neighbourhoods and North African feel make it a pleasant place to wander. The town’s fish restaurants draw the crowds, as does the morning fish and vegetable market on Avenida 5 de Outubro, best visited on Saturday. Olhão is also a springboard for Parque Natural da Ria Formosa’s sandy islands, Culatra and Armona, plus the park’s environmental centre at Quinta de Marim. For fans of Portuguese football, until recently this small town had the Algarve's only Primeira Liga team – Olhanense NEWS ! Olhão to erect seahorse monument In a bid to pay tribute to Ria Formosa’s endangered seahorse population and stress the need to protect it, Olhão has announced plans to erect a monument in honour of the seahorse at the entrance to the town. “Seahorses are part of the town’s heritage and, in recent years, we have called ourselves the capital of Ria Formosa. This title gives us more responsibility to manage the area,” said Olhão mayor António Pina who wants the species to become the town’s “mascot”. The monument will be created by artist Isa Fernandes, who is responsible for many other monuments erected in the town. Concern about Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 89195/ALMore
