Why A.Mark chose Manta Rota

We fell in love with Manta Rota when we went over in 2007 and we were so pleased when we managed to purchase our lovely Townhouse. Manta Rota is an unspoilt Portuguese village with the most gorgeous sandy beach just a leisurely 10 minute walk away. It is ideal as we now have a 7 year old son who loves the beach and sea and the Portuguese love children!. All local amenities are nearby too including the butchers, restaurants/cafes and low key bars. It's absolutely perfect for us. Whilst we enjoy the peaceful location, if we do want to liven things up a bit and and do something a bit more active, we only need to drive a few kilometres to find it and it's also just a 15 minute drive to Spain...perfect!

What makes this house unique

Other than those already mentioned, we have found the security of being within a gated condominium containing just 12 houses a huge plus. Ideal for families visiting with children. When you arrive at the property, you also benefit from the secure off road car parking space as well. Even if you don't want to go out to the beach, you can still take advantage of the residents swimming pool and your very own BBQ lazing in the sun.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I spent a week at Manta Rota with my wife in the summer of 2012. The house is in a quiet convenient location within a gated community of approx 10 houses, which is ideal for children. The swimming pool is only a few steps away from the house and the pool is well maintained. The house is large with a medium sized garden including bar-b-q. The house is fairly new and is well furnished, the first floor of the house has a large balcony, and although there were only two of us the house would also suit a family or a group of friends. The house is within easy walking distance of the beach, bars, shops, and restaurants. I would thoroughly recommend this house at Manta Rota for your next vacation.

Fine place with nice pool

  • 4 of 5

We had a fine time in Manta Rota, a quiet place at a beautiful beach. Our house was fully equipped, well-maintained and Kate gave us a helping hand at the beginning. Thanks for a lovely stay!

Férias Espetaculares!

  • 5 of 5

Uma casa fantástica inserida num condomínio fechado muito sossegado.

A casa tem todo o equipamento necessário para quem quer fazer as refeições todas em casa. Principalmente no quintal, nós fizemos quase sempre as refeições no quintal.

É a casa que muitos de nós gostaríamos de ter para viver!

A Casa é um pouco quente, mas como têm ar condicionado em todas as divisões resolve!

A sala se fosse totalmente ampla era mais aproveitada, uma vez que quem está a fazer refeições não pode ver TV.

É referido que são 10 minutos a pé, eu diria uns 15 a 20. Quem tem crianças é melhor ir de carro, principalmente quem leva mais do que uma toalha.

Tem um lugar de estacionamento para cada casa mas no exterior não há problemas de estacionamento.

A praia de Manta Rota é espectacular.

Uma excelente casa de férias para a família

  • 5 of 5

Uma casa fantástica equipada com tudo o que é necessário num empreendimento muito calmo e agradável. Com um lugar de estacionamento mas com facilidades de estacionamento no exterior. A casa que muitos gostariam de ter para viver. Tanto a casa como as zonas comuns bem limpas e cuidadas. Excelente para quem quer passar umas férias calmas em família. No maior supermercado da vila dá para comprar de tudo aos preços dos hipermercados das cidades próximas. Talho excelente. A casa fica a uns 15/20 min a pé da praia. Para quem tem crianças e leva mais do que uma toalha e um protetor será melhor usar carro não havendo dificuldades de estacionar perto da praia. Já repetimos 3 anos seguidos e vamos continuar!

Fantastica casa de férias

  • 5 of 5

Uma casa fantástica inserida num condomínio fechado de 12 casas. Muito sossegado.

A casa tem todo o equipamento necessário para quem quer fazer as refeições todas em casa. É a casa que muitos de nós gostaríamos de ter para viver! Tanto a casa como as zonas comuns muito bem limpas. Na vila tem um supermercado com preços ao nível dos hipermercados onde se pode comprar carne e pão também.

Não é em cima da praia, mas é por isso que as noites são calmíssimas. Os ingleses dizem que é 10 minutos a pé, eu diria uns 15 a 20. Quem tem crianças é melhor ir de carro ou bicicleta para a praia, principalmente quem leva mais do que uma toalha e um protetor solar!

Tem um lugar de estacionamento para cada casa mas no exterior não há problemas de estacionamento nem de segurança. Estivemos lá 3 anos seguidos e é para continuar!

Quem ainda não conhece a praia de Manta Rôta, nem sabe o que está a perder!

Great part of Southern Europe

  • 5 of 5

Great house. Clean, well maintained, well equipped, large kitchen inc. washing machine, dishwasher, bathroom facilities on 3 levels, large dining table, selection of UK / European TV, BBQ, private outdoor space on 3 level, good size communal pool, designated parking spot.

Easy walking distance to sandy beach, 2 towns, food market, train station, good selection of bars & restaurants. Great value for money in this part of Europe when drinking / eating out.

If you have a car also easy access to a variety of places along the coast in both directions.

Great place for whatever you choose - relaxing or activity filled holiday. Ideal for group of 2 or up to 6 people (plus travel cot sized little people) without the house feeling too big or overcrowded.

Definitely looking to go back - I have already visited twice so I guess that is a recommendation in its self!!
