About Us

The Bicuar Guest House is nestled within the sights and sounds of Olhão’s historic town center, just a one minute walk to the waterfront where restaurants, cafes and shops face the breath taking Ria Formosa national park. This old fishing town of cobbled stone streets, Moorish-style whitewashed square houses and typical stairs leading to the flat roof terraces is a throw to the past with a true Portuguese life style.
