Lovely hotel in a tranquil fishing village 15 minutes drive from Faro. First off, Olhao – we still can't pronounce it – is lovely. A quiet town with plenty of bars and restaurants. There are ferries to take you to the beautiful beaches on the islands. Good value for money in the bars and restaurants. We stayed at the hotel,...
