The Eastern Algarve has a kind climate, where fruits, vegetables, animals and people live happy lives.
Olhão enjoys around 300 days of sunshine each year. It does rain sometimes, but rarely for too long.
Winters are mild, and the houses have enough heating throughout.
Spring is long, as is summer, when a shady corner or a splash in the beach become very welcome.
Autumn is often glorious: the year before last we were still swimming off Culatra on November 15th.
