Make a holiday home in Manta Rota your home away from home

The town of Vila Real de Santo Antonio is the easternmost town of the Algarve region and is separated from Spain by a river. It was once simply a fishing town which received the sardines and tuna from the fishermen plying the Atlantic. This town provides a great experience for walkers as they can see a number of monuments without hassle thanks to the grid design of the streets. It is also a great base from which to explore the many treasures Algarve has to offer. In light of this HomeAway has several holiday homes in Manta Rota that are a short walk from the beach and other interesting attractions. Regardless of the size of their group, tourists will find a Manta Rota holiday rental that will suit them. In addition, holidaymakers will enjoy such facilities as barbecues, swimming pools and satellite/cable TV.

Things to do

-Flora and fauna: The 60km of the Parque National da Ria Formosa are designed to thrill not just the incorrigible nature lover, anyone who hikes through the nature trails here will be astounded by the rich biodiversity. A tour here leads through extensive marshes and a string of sandy islands as well as lagoons. Nestled in the vegetation are various bird species, both migratory and native, as well as a bit of wildlife.

-Town centre:When they’ve had their fill of the wild side of Algarve, visitors can retreat to the Vila Real town centre where they’ll find plenty to keep them occupied. The large, tree-lined town square is home to several shops and places of refreshment where holidaymakers can sip their favourite beverage while chatting and people-watching. The quaintness of the place calls to mind medieval towns and the flatness of the terrain here means tourists can easily get around on foot or bicycle.

-Braches: Tourists looking to book holiday homes in Manta Rota will be pleased to find that they’ll be a stone’s throw from the beach. This pretty beach consists of kilometres of gorgeous sands which stretch from Vila Real to a locale known as Tavira. But should they feel like it holidaymakers can try out Algarve’s other beaches such as the renowned Praia da Falesia which boasts stretches of fine sand interspersed with mighty cliffs.

-Golf: A visit to the nearby Vilamoura region is well worth the trouble, especially for those who are in love with golf. There are several competition-standard courses here designed by renowned architects which both the beginner and seasoned veteran will enjoy. Oceanico Laguna is one of these picturesque courses. It is close to a environmental nature park and thus unsurprisingly attracts a large number of birds. Golfers will enjoy playing around its 79 bunkers.

-Monuments: Algarve has its fair share of monuments and visitors will want to wander from their Manta Rota holiday homes to towns like Almancil where they’ll get to see the historic St. Lawrence’s Church. This magnificent building is decorated with wonderful works of art including the hand-painted tiles covering the interior and the gold-covered altar.

Weather in Manta Rota

The weather in the Vila Real de Santo Antonio locality is pretty much what you’ll find in any part of Algarve. Holidaymakers packing bags for Manta Rota holiday homes for summer holidays should therefore not forget their hats and sunscreen. Temperatures between June and August average between 26 and 29°C but many are the days when temperatures shoot to near 40°C. Summers are typically hot and dry. Winters are not too chilly and temperatures will rarely go below 10°C. Most of Manta Rota’s rainfall is experienced in this time of year.

Travel to Manta Rota

Those headed to this part of Portugal will need to book a flight for the Faro Airport, also known as the Algarve Airport. This will put them less than an hour’s drive away from their holiday rentals in Manta Rota. To get there travellers can either board a taxi from the Arrivals or get a bus or train. Covering the 52km between Faro and Vila Real de Santo Antonio by train is the most cost-effective way to do so, costing just little over €5. A taxi ride could cost up to €80.

Manta Rota is a quiet village but has an eclectic mix of places to eat and enjoy coffee or drinks. The owner Graham provided great insight into the area prior to our visit which was extremely useful. The beaches are fantastic and there is a lot of history to be discovered. Nearby larger towns and within striking distance for which we used the recommended local taxi driver Nuno, again his local knowledge was most welcome. The townhouse is equipped with everything one could wish for and has three sun terraces which we loved. Kate the keyholder was always on hand in case of any difficulties and was extremely helpful. All in all, a fantastic holiday and a property that I would highly recommend. Thankyou, Graham, Kate and Nuno.
