"Casa Magica" for lovers of the special in the historic center of Olhao

Adults-only holiday home in Olhao
"Casa Magica" is a lovingly, authentically restored old house in the historic old town of the picturesque fishing town of Olhão in the Eastern Algarve. On a spacious 110 m² living space plus 47 m² roof terraces, up to 4 people can feel comfortable in the middle of Portuguese life. Subtle luxury with the magical colors of the south can be found everywhere in the house and creates a unique, romantic atmosphere.
Contemporary comfort is harmoniously combined with the traditional. You don't have to do without a dishwasher, washing machine and iron.
The two cozy bedrooms on the first (double bed 140x190) and second floor (double bed 160x200) have interestingly designed enSuite bathrooms.
There is another toilet on the ground floor. There is also a living room, dining room and kitchen, which merge and offer plenty of space. There you will quickly find your favorite place - with a book in the armchairs, on the sofa in front of the flat-screen TV or in the winter months in front of the crackling open fire. Free high-speed internet access is just as natural as air conditioning.
The highlights outside are two beautiful roof terraces with olive trees and flowers. The first cuddly, surrounded by 3 walls. The second, up a flight of stairs, with a great panoramic view with lots of local color over the Moorish, cubic Olhão to the sea ... BBQ, sun loungers, pergola and dining area ... Sunset with a good glass of wine included.
Thanks to the various heating options, the "Casa Magica" is also perfectly suitable for wintering.
The location of the "Casa Magica" is excellent. Very quietly located in a small side street, and yet it is only a few steps to the famous market halls directly by the sea and to the ferries that take you to the kilometers of beaches of the offshore islands in the nature reserve "Ria Formosa", the absolute insider tip of the Algarve bring. Those who love to run will find undisturbed spots, restaurants, bars, shops, sights such as the church tower, and shopping options in many variations are also within walking distance.
A year-round cultural offer round off your stay.
Since we have been living nearby for many years, we are always happy to give you tips about your vacation with us.

Casa típica de Olhao rehabilitada con mucho gusto y todas las comodidades, aún mejor que las fotos. Muy bien ubicada, limpieza impecable y trato inmejorable por parte de los dueños. Volveremos.

5/5 Excellent

Rundum schöner Aufenthalt
Wir haben uns in den 16 Tagen in der Casa Mágica sehr wohl gefühlt. Eine wunderschöne, mediterrane Einrichtung mit Liebe zum Detail; den Blick von den zwei Terrassen auf die Dächer und Gässchen von Olhão und an einer Seite sogar auf das Meer, haben wir sehr genossen. Die Wohnung war sehr sauber und komplett eingerichtet, es hat uns an nichts gefehlt. Auch die Lage ist perfekt, wir hatten es sehr nah zur Altstadt, zum Hafen und zum Markt. Der Gastgeber war sehr nett und wir wurden mit einem köstlichen Willkommensgruß aus portugiesischem Wein und typisch portugiesischem Gebäck überrascht. Wir bedanken uns herzlich für den schönen Aufenthalt!
