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.

Lovely villa, well equipped and perfect for the needs of our family. The owner Mar

5 of 5
The owner Marina was helpful before and during our stay, we would recommend the services of Edite the local taxi driver if you do not have a car, she is very knowledgeable about the area and friendly. The beach is beautiful and although the sea is cold we managed a swim. Eating out was not so good, cheap in monte Gordo but poor quality probably better in villa real we didn't get there.

The pictures on here do not do the Villa justice, it is more spacious than I realised.

5 of 5
We wanted a relaxing family holiday, we got that and more. There was myself and my husband, my son and his partner, my daughter and her partner and my 15 year old daughter . The Villa has something for everyone! The snooker table was a big favourite and we had some good evenings making cocktails and chilling in the games room. By the day the pool was big enough for us all to enjoy. We met Dawn the owner who is always contactable if you need anything. We hired a car and needed to pick it up, Dawn kindly dropped us off at the car hire. The only thing I would add is some lighting over the pool table. We had an amazing time and i would definitely recommend this Villa. The villa is great for all parties, families with teenagers, or younger children, groups or couples! Thank you Dawn.
