Falesia beach stretches for 5 kilometres of unspoilt sand all the way to Vilamoura, backed by dramatic pine clad red cliffs and is accessible from the village.
Within minutes are supermarkets, local market, bars, restaurants, buses to Albufeira, Viilamoura and Faro. From Vilamour's Marina it is possible to book fishing trips, dolphin trips, boats, cave and BBQ trips. The stunning Ria Formasa nature reserve is a 30 minute drive and offers private islands, bird watching, guided nature boat trips, and walks. The Algarve has some of the most beautiful golf courses in the world and we have several right on our doorstep.

Our comfortable apartment is used as our holiday home and we visit it as often as we can.
We're looking forward to trying lovehomeswap and exploring new places around the world. As we sometimes rent the apartment out, we have it managed locally so that we have somebody who can meet you at the apartment and show you around etc, as well as all the amenites in place to arrange cleaning & fresh linen. We would have to pass on the relatively small cost of cleaning and linen (€100) at the end of your stay.

Where is it?


Olhos de Agua is a traditional fishing village
For a holiday, Olhos de Agua offers outstanding beaches, has a wide variety of restaurants and bars, and basks under the glorious climate of the Algarve. The town is the ideal destination for visitors wanting a calm and relaxed holiday, but still wish to be close to the buzz of large resort towns (Albufeira is just 4km away and Vilamoura is 14km.

Highlights of Olhos de Agua
• The beautiful Praia da Falésia, one of the Algarve’s finest beaches
• The varied selection of restaurants and bars
• Embracing the unhurried Portuguese mentality and café culture
• The 9-hole Pine Cliffs Golf Course (and driving range)
For a family holiday to the central Algarve
• Zoomarine, a fantastic marine life-based theme park
• Slide & Splash and Aqualand, adrenaline thrilled waterparks
• Dolphin watching trip and boat tour of the dramatic coastline
• The banana boat, sea inflatables, and beach silliness of Albufeira
Olhos de Agua is just the right distance from Albufeira
One of the main appeals of Olhos de Agua is having easy access to all of the facilities and services of a buzzing and hectic resort town (Albufeira), without actually being in it.
It is difficult to imagine that the peaceful ambience of Olhos de Agua is less than 4km from the bars and clubs of The Strip in Albufeira. Along with great nightlife Albufeira also has extensive shopping, a pretty historic centre and a large marina, where many of the boat tours depart from.

In the easterly direction is Vilamoura, with its exclusive marina, golfing resorts and glorious beaches. Vilamoura is chic and stylish, and tends to cater for the more refined tourist, along with the super-rich who moor their yachts in the marina.
Olhos de Agua is calm and low-key but they surrounding region certainly is not, a holiday to Olhos can be peaceful or exciting as you wish to make it.
Praia da Falesia beach
The beautiful Praia da Falésia beach, just a short walk from Olhos de Agua
Olhos de Agua is better suited for visitors who wish a stress-free holiday, with a focus on the beach, long meals and evenings spent socialising with like-minded people. This typically covers young families or the more mature visitor.
Olhos de Agua can make a good base for a golfing holiday as it is close to the golf courses of Vilamoura, but it does not have the pretentious or flashy nature of Vilamoura.
