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.

Praia Verde:

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. There are, however, shops and cafés nearby as well as a small shopping arcade that make this spot near Castro Marim a great place to enjoy a day or two.

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.

The Castle of Castro Marim:

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 Núcleo Museológico do Castelo de Castro Marim museum, located inside the castle, explains the history of the castle and town and displays archaeological artefacts.

Such a lovely little house for us. Clean and perfectly situated for everything

5 of 5
We took the house for the winter. Nelson was so helpful and very friendly easy to contact and nothing was too much trouble. The house has all you need and the street is right in front of the woods and it's about 5mins to the beach. Any road from the town or beach lead to the road the house is in perfect. The bus stop is 2mins away giving access to villa real san Antonio to faro and all the main towns in between for very reasonable prices. The train station is a little further out of the town but a train ride into faro, we even saw flamingos. Very easy access to Spain and the ferry to ayamore is every hour and only 1.90€ from Villa real. The house has a courtyard which is well equipped with table and chairs a washing machine and line to dry clothes. The house feels very safe and private as there are 2 locking doors between the house and street although the area feels very safe anyway. Lots of restaurants and bars and coffee shops. The beach is excellent and the boardwalk stretches from one end of monte gordo to the other about 2km. Very pleased with our stay and would definitely recommend this property to anyone

Enjoyable stay

We had a very nice 12 days staying in the villa. It was close to my daughter so very convenient. It was verry comfortable. Shame it was too cold to use the swimming pool it looked very inviting.
