Originally a fisherman’s house, owners Lara and Dário renovated Casa Céu in 2019 and you can tell they’ve carried out the work with a lot of love.
The whole house is beautifully decorated, with white walls, high ceilings and lots of light.
We particularly loved the gorgeous roof terrace and the breakfasts we had there. The sunsets were incredible and perfect for a sundowner while playing one of the wooden board games available.
The stunning rooftop where breakfast is served, with views over the rooftops of Olhão.

Located in the heart of an authentic fisherman's town.
Only a 15-minute drive from Faro’s airport.
Bear in Mind
Adults only (18+).
There are no TVs, which we’re sure you won’t miss.
No coffee or tea maker in the room, but you do get filtered water and some tasty locals nuts.
There’s no beach in Olhão, although the local islands of Culatra, Armona and Farol are an Algarve gem.
There are many great restaurants within walking distance, but you can also enjoy a locally sourced home-cooked dinner on Casa Céu’s rooftop (Friday to Monday, with 24 hours’ notice).
Casa Céu provides bikes for guests to explore Olhão.
Watch the video above which we did with Condé Nast Traveller. In it we talk about Foz do Douro - the seaside neighbourhood in Porto where we grew up. check out the Full article on their website.
We love Cacela Velha, a quaint village with traditional Algarvian white houses with colourful windows.
