Things to do

Salt Marsh Nature Reserve:

This natural wonder of Castro Marim and Vila Real de Santo António covers over 2,000 hectares. Salt marshes, salt pans, and numerous creeks are home to 150 different species of birds, including sand pipers and storks. Various hiking trails lead visitors through the reserve, and the visitors' centre provides guides and itineraries.

Vila Real:

Castro Marim is located just a few miles from the town of Vila Real. This charming town was built in the late-18th century and has a beautiful town square. There are ferries that run across the river to Ayamonte, Spain, for those who wish to visit another country on their trip.

Long stretches of undisturbed sandy beach await visitors to Praia Verde. This area is relatively undeveloped, offering bathers the chance to get away from it all.

Traditional arts and crafts:

Lace making and basket weaving are still strong traditions and trades in Castro Marim. Visitors can expect to see local craftswomen making fine lace as well as woven mats and baskets for the home. There are numerous stands and shops selling these fine local wares.

Misericórdia (Mercy) Church:

This beautiful church was built atop the remains of the 14th-century Church of São Iago (St. James), which was destroyed by a massive earthquake in 1755. Aside from the ruins of the old church, there are also 17th-century tombs to be found inside.

This medieval castle is located on a hilltop above the town of Castro Marim. It was constructed as a defence centre during the Portuguese Reconquista.

The villa is gorgeous with a warm homely feel, containing everything you could possibly need and more for a comfortable stay. The villa was perfect for our 7 month old as it was very cool inside during the day with aircon at night. The grounds around the pool has plenty of shady areas for her to play in safely. The local area although quiet (which is what we wanted) has plenty of nice restaurants to dine out in the evening, only a short drive to the beach and other larger towns to explore. Couldn't fault our stay at all, Orlando was very helpful and accommodating to our specific needs. I would highly recommend the Casa Nova Villa and I'm sure we'll be back!

Stuart, the owner, was really friendly & helpful but didn't intrude in anyway, even though he lives upstairs. We stayed in most of the nights during our stay and used the big gas bbq provided to cook. There are no restaurants in walking distance but there are some not too far away and there is an English speaking taxi driver who we used on the two occasions we did eat out. We chose this apartment because we wanted to cook in and have the space and privacy to put our feet up, play a little music and relax after a day on the beach / out and about. There is a nice view from the terrace and swallows dip into the pool in the evening as the sunsets, which was lovely. Pool is a good size and was kept clean. The welcome pack provided is a thoughtful gesture too. We would definitely like to return in the future.
