Location

Travessa Heliodoro Salgado 7, 8700-558 Olhão.

Located in the heart of the old town. Contact the owners for detailed directions. There is a standard-size garage, but for other guests, parking - as you can imagine in the backstreets of a small town - is a case of first-come first-served.

Cost

From €8945, based on 7 days accommodation only. Longer or shorter stays are possible subject to availability. 5 days is the minimum, except in July and August and over Christmas/New Year when the minimum is 7 days.
