Casa W Olhão is a concept of eco-friendly fishermen's houses.


JANEIRO is the Fisherman's Tower. It is located in the heart of the pedestrian streets of Barreta, the old town of Olhão. A bedroom with a 160x200cm bed, a bathroom and several terraces with exceptional views of the cubist city and the Ria Fomosa. The watchtower of the Fisherman's Tower overlooks the sea and the island of Culatra. The house has all modern comforts and an independent office for teleworking.

The historic old town of Olhão still has its fishermen who move here and there in the pedestrian streets, a bucket in hand with the remains of a peach, talking loudly and giving their neighborhood that unique atmosphere. The fisherman's tower is made up of several levels because the fishermen needed to climb to the highest to see the state of the sea each day, before taking out their fishing boats. This house is 200 meters from the port.


This fisherman's tower is distributed as follows: on the ground floor, an entrance hall, a bedroom, a shower room and a dressing room. On the first floor, the living room with a fully equipped kitchen with large glass doors opening onto a pretty balcony sheltered by a pergola. On the second floor, a furnished terrace with different spaces for dining or relaxing. A desk allows you to work with a direct view of the city and the Ria Formosa. Finally, you can access the watchtower of the fisherman's tower to revel in the view of the sea and have your meals or a drink there.


It has been renovated retaining all its original features, such as its identity entrance door, its traditional brick vaulted ceilings and its Santa Catarina terracotta floor typical of the Algarve region. The chimney of the roofs of Olhão and the terraces on several levels.


We want to work to preserve the nature of our city and the Ria Formosa while maintaining optimal comfort for our guests.

In order to reduce the impact of tourism on the Ria Formosa, a UNESCO heritage site, Casa W Olhão houses adopt an eco-friendly operation.

This passes for ecological products, sorting bins, household linen from an old Portuguese spinning mill, a layout with upcycling furniture, recycled toilet paper and paper towels, LED lighting…


During the day, take the ferry to the beaches of the islands in front of the city, and, on the way back, stroll along the seafront, sit on one of the many terraces to refresh yourself. Bars and restaurants are open all year round. We will send you our best addresses.
