for 5 nights







A luxurious and stunning townhouse with rooftop swimming pool and terrace, ideal for a large group looking to celebrate a special occasion or for a corporate get-together.

This exceptionally elegant townhouse located in the historic heart of Olhão, is built around a central courtyard and spread over 3 levels, with a rooftop swimming pool which can be heated, as well as various terraces from where you can enjoy skyline vistas over the surrounding town, all the way to the Ria Formosa estuary and only 15 minutes away from Faro airport with its wide range of airline connections.

Ideal for a unique event or for simply enjoying total relaxation, at Olhão Townhouse guests are able to choose from several add-ons to the rental, ranging from wellness treatments to the services of a chef or a totally bespoke programme, with a dedicated house manager to help ensure that all runs smoothly. There is also a meditation sanctuary room, a games room with a pool table, and a yoga deck with equipment provided.

Recently refurbished using local craftsmen and artisans to keep within the traditional architectural style yet offering contemporary design and comfort, the Olhão Townhouse has thick walls, tiled or wooden floors, vaulted ceilings and ceiling fans, all of which make the summer heat manageable. Two tower suites on 2 levels and each benefitting from private terraces, are more suited for those who don’t mind a few steps.

We recommend that guests booking 5 nights aim to arrive Wednesday or Thursday as flights are cheaper midweek and you can then enjoy the Saturday waterfront market!
