It offers a glimpse into how the Portugal of yore looked with a series of interesting monuments and buildings of typical Portuguese architecture lining the streets. There are also many cultural events that take place in this town. On top of that it provides the ideal grounds for a golfing holiday. Tourists headed for this attraction-laden locale can make their stay even more enjoyable by booking one of the holiday homes in Castro Marim provided by HomeAway. These include amazing quinta-style villas big enough for large travelling groups and spacious town houses with modern styling. Majority of the Castro Marim holiday rentals are situated close to the beach, making them ideal for sun-worshippers. Even better for those out for a rich tan, some come with private pools complete with loungers.

Things to do

-Historical sites: This town has a rich history having been used as a port for thousands of years. It is reputed to have been the place where the soldiers of the Order of Christ had their headquarters in the 14th century. The Castle of Marim which towers over the town is one of the visible reminders of this illustrious past. It dates back to the 10th century.

-Nature walks: The Reserva Natural do Sapal serves up quite a treat for nature lovers. Within its 2,000 hectares is a dense diversity of flora and fauna, including over 400 plant species and 150 species of birds. Birdwatchers can expect to spot flamingos, sandpipers and different kinds of storks wandering about. While here visitors will get the chance to see salt being harvested in the traditional way from the salt marshes.

-Culture: Visitors who book holiday homes in Castro Marim during the month of August are in for a dose of unique Portuguese culture as this is when the Medieval Fair/Festival takes place. Apart from local artists, many performers come from across the world to participate in musicals, dances and a host of other events. Revellers can also leave with some unique items as blacksmiths, weavers and herb sellers all come with their wares.

-Food and drink: There are oodles of places in this region where visitors can get a taste of excellent Algarve cuisine. At the Restaurante O Infante visitors will find an inviting ambiance emanating from the tastefully done decor. Their palates will be overwhelmed with the divine meat and fish-based dishes helped down with brilliant wine. Another great place to eat is Pezinhos N’Areia. Visitors can treat their loved ones to great seafood here. Their shellfish is to die for.

-Beaches: Castro Marim is not short of places from which to bask, the Praia Verde is one of such places and visitors will be immediately struck by its beauty. At their feet will be a carpet of fine, golden sand on which they can spend hours strolling. When thirst sets in, tourists can resort to one of the beach bars there for refreshment.

Weather in Castro Marim

This locale experiences warm weather throughout the year only broken by a brief cold spell between November and February which is mild by any standards. During this winter, if we can call it that, temperatures remain in the upper teens, going slightly below 15°C on the coldest days. This is the period when most of Castro Marim’s rain falls, with December being particularly wet. But most people booking holiday homes and villas in Marim will be eyeing the cloudless summer skies of the months between June and August. A bottle of sunscreen is advised for such holidaymakers as temperatures regularly soar to 30°C and beyond.

Super accommodation in good location.

5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay in Emilia's house. Emilia was a great host and was very helpful and kind to us throughout our stay. The house has great indoor and outdoor space. if anything the web description does not do it full justice. We made good use of all the facilities including dishwasher, washing machine and bbq. But the big drawing card is the outside terrace. We spent a lot of time there eating meals, sitting out or on the loungers. The location of the house is great with the Market and the feryboat to beach a mere 5 min walk away. There are supermarkets and little cafes nearby while the beautiful town centre is less that 10 mins walk. If you want to stay in Tavira you cannot go wrong with this property.

WOW! A perfect holiday home in a stunning location

5 of 5
This villa must rate among the best self-catering holiday accommodation I have ever experienced. From the moment you walk in the door it feels like a home rather than a holiday rental. The furnishings and decor are perfect and the villa contains everything you are ever going to need - the only thing you are asked to provide is beach towels. The villa is spotlesley clean, bright and airy, nice and cool especially at night. The kitchen is equipped to a very high standard with large fridge/freezer as well as all the small appliances. The villa having its own private swimming pool set in lovely gardens is a real bonus. The master bedroom is just beautiful, next to a well-appointed bathroom with lovely rustic tiles from the local area. The open plan lounge area is spacious and very comfortable. There are two large patios outside with tables, chairs and sun loungers provided. The villa also has private car parking which is very useful. All in all a great place to relax and unwind, easy walking distance to the beach, supermarkets, bars and restaurants. I Would highly recommend this beautiful homely villa to anyone and would definitely return.
