Various hiking trails lead visitors through the reserve, and the visitors' centre provides guides and itineraries.

Vila Real:

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.

We have just returned after spending 10 days there and we are all wishing we were still there. The villa has a very homely feel, its like you are borrowing someones home for your holiday. It is very well equipped and had everything we needed. On our arrival it was clean and tidy and during our stay we had visits from the pool cleaner, gardener and cleaners to help keep it tidy. We were a group of 4 adults and 6 children (ranging in ages from 16 to 7 years). The pool was perfect, the kids were in it everyday, morning and afternoon. The garden is split into 2 sections with the pool on one side and the games area the other which works really well. The grounds of the villa are very secure and can be locked up to give parents that extra peace of mind. Andrew was on hand by phone to help with any concerns we may have had, but we had none, our stay was hassle-free. Manta Rota is a small village very much off the tourist track, which was just what we wanted. In the town there are lots of places to eat (we would highly recommend Mars Bar) and buy ice creams - a must for the kids. There are also 2 supermarkets within a 5 minute walking distance where you pick up everything you need. The beach is stunning, so clean and only a 10 minute walk from the villa. It can be crowed but if you just walk in either direction along the shore for 10/15minutes the crowds thin out and its a lot quieter. Its very accessible as well with a long wooden gangplank - we visited nearly everyday. We didn't hire a car but this didn't stop us getting out and about as it is only a 25minute walk to the train station in the next village of Cacela. The trains are very good value for money and were running on time for all our trips to Tavira, Faro and Vila Real. I would highly recommend Casa Betel to family and friends and anyone reading this review. We would definitely return.

                                                                                                      Spent a lovely family holiday here two weeks ago. Our ages ranged from 3 to 64 years. There was plenty of space for us all and the house is very well equipped. The games room offered table tennis, pool and table football and a large fridge freezer which kept our beer nice and cool. The swimming pool proved very popular and we opted for the heated option even though the weather was very warm. This made all the difference for the younger children (and myself). The shady terrace at the front of the villa provided a lovely place to sit at all times of the day. Watch out for the lawn sprinklers early morning or late evening! The location of the villa is very convenient for the main road between Spain and Portugal. We had no trouble getting there from Faro airport and travelled into Spain several times. The village itself has a small shop, two bars and a Snack bar which has a large restaurant room at the back serving excellent food. I can recommend the fried prawn starter and fish dishes. There are a number of supermarkets and beaches within 15 minutes drive. Praia Verde beach is beautiful and also the town of Monte Gordo which has a lovely beach, great bars and restaurants and amusements which open late evening. Kids and young adults can recommend the "Fun House" there. This was my first time in Portugal and I thoroughly enjoyed staying in this lovely villa.
