We are excited to bring you a brand new Houseparty in the Algarve town of Olhão. This is the alternative Algarve: instead of the sandstone cliffs and large resorts west of Faro, here are 60kms of tidal lagoons, islands and sandy beaches. The protected status of the Ria Formosa Natural Park restricts development, so Olhão retains its old town of cobbled streets and white-washed houses, its working port and fish market. This is the real Algarve!

Opening in June for our first guests, this Houseparty is based in a renovated 19th century building on a tree-lined avenue in the old town. Low-key bars, restaurants and ice-cream parlours are virtually on the doorstep and within 10 minutes’ walk are the waterfront promenade, the market (designed by Gustav Eiffel) and the ferries which run to the beautiful islands just offshore. This is a great base whether you want to go sightseeing by rail or bus, use one of our bikes to discover local villages, or follow an eco-guide in search of wildlife. Casa Rosa is also a boutique retreat where you can slow right down to Portuguese pace: tanning on the roof terrace before strolling out to a café for lunch, or spending all on one of the islands’ superb beaches.

Casa Rosa is being transformed from a 19th century townhouse into a 21st century boutique hotel of 14 smart rooms, and welcomes its first guests – which could be you – in June.

Casa Rosa looks traditional from the outside: pink plaster walls, classical details. Inside, it offers relaxed coastal living using natural materials with a contemporary twist (see artist’s impressions).

At ground level there is an open-plan living/dining room which opens onto a tiled courtyard with plunge pool and sociable seating. Upstairs is a beautiful furnished roof terrace with Jacuzzi: a real suntrap! Wherever you are in Casa Rosa, you should be able to pick up the free WiFi.

We include a continental breakfast spread each morning. A salad or sandwich may be ordered if you’re ‘at home’ for lunch (extra charge), and we run an honesty bar during the day, with a wider drinks range served in the evening, from cocktails to a wine list. Our package includes 5 dinners with wine each week. There is plenty of choice nearby for the remaining nights, at own expense.

Olhão is an easy transfer from Faro airport, which is well-served by regional flights. There’s plenty to see and do in the area. Local trains and buses are great value for visiting Faro, Taviro or the Spanish border town of Vila Real de Santo Antonio. Ferries run to the island community of Armona (15 minutes) where you find a cafes and beach loungers. Culatra has a little fishing port and a long stretch of sand with Farol lighthouse at its tip. Private boat trips led by expert guides visit uninhabited islands rich with birdlife.

We have bicycles at the hotel for guest use and Olhão is well connected by rail and bus for sightseeing in coastal towns, including Faro.

Nightlife in Olhão is low-key, revolving around the friendly cafes and bars in the streets by the market, where you can sip a cocktail while watching the sun set behind the islands. An evening in Faro, with your Host, is a great choice for one of the nights when we don’t include dinner.
