Castro Marim Golf & Country Club is stylish and elegant and offers a warm welcome to all guests - and whether golfers or not, no visitor cannot fail to be impressed! The Clubhouse has spectacular panoramic views of neighbouring Spain and the Ocean where you can enjoy the peaceful ambience for drinks, snacks, or dining in the elegant restaurant. The golf courses are immediately on-site and offer a good standard of play for all levels of golfers.
Generally speaking, Castro Marim is an ideal place to visit if you prefer a more relaxed holiday where you can still enjoy a traditional feel of the Eastern Algarve with friendly locals and not too much evidence of tourism.
Locally and only 1km away, the village of Monte Francisco has 'Restaurant Lupisao' offering great Algarvian cuisine at reasonable prices. A little further (3kms) is the main town of Castro Marim which has retained a traditional feel with narrow streets full of character and a wider choice of restaurants, bars and cafes. There is also a supermarket selling a wide range of products and a large open air market that visits monthly. Another key feature of this town is the Castle which is open to the public and worth a visit - even if just to sample the fabulous views at the very least!
Close by, Vila Real, the Portuguese border town facing Spain, is great for shopping and dining out. And also a must is a trip to Spain itself. A short drive across the bridge, or the ferry trip from Vila Real will take you to the town of Ayamonte where you can sample the delights of a different country where Tapas, wine and shopping are in abundance!
Distance to the closest beaches is around 7kms. At either Cabeco or Praia Verde, you will find beautiful white sands and rolling oceans, perfect for sunbathing or family outings. They are all wonderfully clean and link between neighbouring resorts - perfect for long relaxing walks beside the ocean. At both beaches you will find good food - at Cabeco, 'Sem Espinhas' is great for relaxed dining on the seashore, and at Praia Verde - 'Pezinhos na Areia', offers a more formal but fabulous dining experience with elegant surroundings overlooking the ocean.
THE BEAUTIFUL TOWN OF TAVIRA
When staying in this accommodation a visit to the beautiful town centre of Tavira is essential! Once known as the capital of the Algarve, Tavira stands proud amongst Portuguese history books and you will not fail to be enthralled by its unspoilt charm, character and tranquility. As you wander along the cobbled streets, you'll see an abundance of history and wonderful architecture. A Roman bridge links the 2 parts of the town across the River Gilao, its sides decorated with traditional old bars and restaurants - perfect for lazy lunches or a glass or 2!.
OTHER THINGS TO SEE AND DO
…….by travelling a little further afield there are a good range of things to do to suit all tastes. For nature lovers there are forest walks, cruises along the River Guadiana or natures trails along the Ria Formosa Reserve where bird watching is in abundance! By travelling towards the West there are some excellent shopping centres in Faro and Ghia as well as the famous Water Parks and Zoo Marine (wonderful for children), all easily reached by car or by day trip coach (around 45 minutes). From this property it is also easy to take a day trip to Spain. The lovely border town of Ayamonte is not far, and once there you can sample the delights of another country, including wine, tapas and excellent shopping. You can travel by car, or use public transport to get to Vila Real de Santo Antonio and from there take the 15 minute ferry crossing across the Guadiana River between Spain and Portugal. For the more adventurous the vibrant city of Seville is approx 170km away and for budding historians the Castle at Castro Marim is worth a look.
