Olhão experience OVERVIEW

A venue full of interesting surprises and contrasts in the undiscovered location of Olhao - Algarve to re-charge your guests batteries and witness amazing urban and natural sceneries. A place to enjoy and discover Olhao’s down to earth salty charm, warm and hospitable people, creative community, cobbled streets and faded grandeur.

You will be staying at a luxurious historic townhouse located in the heart of Olhao’s old town. Originally, a classical gentleman’s residence that was lovingly restored over a three year period by its amazing British owners Tara and Jonathan preserving its original architecture and adding contemporary design and comfort ending up with an authentic master piece fit for kings and queens.

In between Yoga classes, you will be able to enjoy the delicious Portuguese meals prepared by the local chef, the fabulous markets that Olhao has to offer within easy walking distance of the house – as are the ferries and taxis to the unspoilt islands and the Natural Park of Ria Formosa to mindfully enjoy its authentic charming decadence and natural beauty.

Book your retreat and sail into an amazing event into the unknown Algarve.
