The charming town of Olhão is located to the east of Faro in southern Portugal. Unlike other towns, which are usually deserted outside the summer season, Olhão remains vibrant all-year round. Stroll through its narrow streets, lined with colourful, picturesque houses, enjoy dinner on the waterfront, or catch a water taxi to the bounty beaches on the nearby islands. The bustling Saturday market is a cultural highlight; a genuine thrill for all senses.

Casa Fuzetta is conveniently situated in the heart of Olhão’s historic centre. It comprises three individual houses that have been cleverly merged into one large and stylish townhouse for 24 people. With 12 luxurious and spacious bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, a beautifully decorated living room, stunning kitchen, several terraces and lounge areas, a spacious roof terrace with (heated) swimming pool and outdoor bar ... we prefer to call Casa Fuzetta a 'Boutique Homestay’. Indeed, a stay at Casa Fuzetta offers all of the comfort of a 5* hotel, coupled with the freedom and privacy of your own private holiday home.

The English owners go out of their way to make guests feel completely at home. Their aim is that you leave feeling thoroughly rejuvenated and bursting with creativity – almost a given in such beautiful surroundings! The decor is a tasteful combination of classic and contemporary styles, with a bohemian touch here and there. Virtually every room opens out fully to the terraces, for harmonious indoor/outdoor living. The meditation and massage rooms provide a welcome space for reflection. In fact, it’s impossible not to leave feeling totally relaxed. All in all, the ideal holiday home for celebrating a special occasion with family or friends.

Do you want to know more from Christa about Casa Fuzetta? She is happy to advise you!


Casa Fuzetta is located in the charming town of Olhão. Olhão is a major port and actually the largest fishing port in the Algarve. It is a typical town, partly because of the colorful houses in Moorish style, the influence of the commercial ties with Africa.

Olhão is a city of many faces, the (industrial) fishing port, long promenade with refreshing gardens (and playground) and a historic center with narrow streets and local cafes. Along the waterfront you will find the market halls; which are a must for the wide variety of very fresh fish and seafood straight from the harbor and a wide variety of locally grown fresh fruits and vegetables. The market halls are surrounded by terraces and it's a great place to sit and enjoy the view of the boats with jazz music playing in the local cafe. Olhão is surrounded by "Ilhas" islands with beaches and Reserva Natural da Ria Formosa. This is a protected area where you could make fantastic hikes and could spot rare birds. The two main beaches are Olhão Ilha da Colatra and Ilha da Armona and they are all year round accessible by regular ferry from the jetty in Olhão (5 minute walk).

The boat trip takes about half an hour and takes you to beautiful beaches without the mass tourism that you are used to in the Algarve. On the island is a restaurant. The beach of Fuseta is a lovely wide sandy beach and is located at a distance of 20 minutes drive. The charming town of Tavira is a half hour drive in the direction of the Spanish border. Faro airport is 20 minutes drive away.
