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.

Beautiful villa, very well equipped with everything you could need

5 of 5
Great place, especially for teenagers. Beautifully furnished and equipped. The cinema room and games room are a great addition. The pool gets deep very quickly so not sure it's ideal for little kids who can't swim well. Plenty of places to go nearby but you definitely need a car. The welcome pack is a nice touch too.

Brilliant

5 of 5
Lovely property for a quiet relaxing holiday for the whole family. Went with 4 adults and 5 children plenty for the kids with pool and beach close by. Would recommend as owners extremely helpful when kettle broke and WiFi didn't work. Thanks again for a lovely time.
