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.

An exceptional villa, well presented and in a great location

5 of 5
I have stayed in this villa a number of times over the years and at different times of the year and it never disappoints me, family or friends. Its an easy 45 minute drive from the airport, I have always hired cars from anyone of many hire companies, and all have been good. The villa is in a nice quite village, with a shop, bars and restaurant's all close to hand. The villa is plenty big enough when I have been there in large groups and is also comfortable if in a small group. It has always been presented nicely when I arrive and is well enough equipped. The best thing about this villa is the pool and pool area. The pool is big, heated and clean with a good sized barbeque area. I have spent many many enjoyable day times and evenings around the pool, with friends, family, food and wine, what more do you need on holiday. Thank you Adrian, hope to stay again soon

Beautiful villa with outstanding views.

5 of 5
The views are stunning and the position is private, with good accessability to the rest of the Algarve. The Kitchen is very well equipped and we really liked the facilities provided. All of the rooms are spacious and the villa is extremely clean and tidy. The swimming pool is the perfect size for a large group. We found this villa to be almost faultless. There are some great restaurants close by, however you may need a car, there is an excellent restaurant within walking distance. The beach in Altura is stunning, golden sand and crystal clear water. Kate the lady who manages the villa is extremely freindly and very helpful. We hope to return very soon.
