The Pool House

Set on a quiet street 5 mins from the sea front the Pool House is rumoured to have been owned by the owner of Olhão’s first bank some 150 years ago. Beautifully restored this deceptively large house is a typical example of Portuguese architecture. When you walk into the front door you would never imagine this magical place with enchanting courtyards and a swimming pool. All the bedrooms are very spacious and all have en-suite facilities. Every room has been thoughtfully decorated with antique furniture which adds to the charm of the house.
