About the property

This flat, In the heart of a peaceful fisher and farmer village people, walk distance of 15 minutes from the beach! A +/- 20Km of white silky sand beaches,lots of birds, our house offers the smelly Mediterranean plants and the peaceful and quiet sight of a starred sky,magnificent sunsets in a large alfresco patio after a very warm sunny day!

Our swimming pool, disinfected by salt system, invites you, even in the hot nights,to have a swim under the stars! Hot water by solar energy. We are surrounded by some of the best Golf courses and 5km from the best of Europe!

Manta Rota grew between farms and the sea. Without really being a fishing village, Manta Rota can keep afford fresh vegetables and always very fresh fish! Surrounded by Castles museums and legends of Moors, a cultural richness, legacy, we are neighboring cities-museums as Mértola, Beja or even Sevilha, in Spain: 1 h 30 from Beja and from Seville. Manta Rota has a privileged situation between civilizations and Cultures. An hour and a half between Manta Rota in a circle that goes from the West coast of Sagres, to Sevilha, Beja and Mértola, in the Alentejo: its museums, its Culture, its Art, its songs, hunting areas, excellent wines and the beauty of one unique landscape in the world!

The Natural Legacy: Manta Rota is located between 2 natural parks: Ria Formosa, which begins here and ends after the city fishing port Olhão. The Sapal, Salt works, which houses a variety of animals and water birds, such as the pink flamingos.

Above all: We have the more important and priceless MUST: Peace!

Although the owner lives on the ground floor, the privacy of guests is highly preserved ... and allows the claims on the field!

Amazing sun terrace, fabulous pool & wonderful hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Maria José & her daughter maintain a beautiful place to stay & they are extremely respectful of privacy and the place they offer is such a gem! The terrace gets plentiful sun & the pool is salt water & cools you down in the lunchtime sun!

The generosity of these hosts was lovely & appreciated and the apartment was stocked with all the essentials we required. The restaurants & places nearby offered delicious authentic Portuguese food. We had a wonderful time!

Calme et sérénité en novembre

  • 4 of 5

Excellent accueil et contacts chaleureux avec la propriétaire (multilingue).

Appartement vaste en 1er étage de la maison et parfaitement bien équipé.

Idéalement placé pour accéder à la plage ou pour se promener en campagne.

Belle piscine disponible dans le jardin mais que nous n'avons pas utilisée.

A tester à nouveau lors d'une période différente (printemps par exemple).

Gepflegte Wohnung in ruhiger Lage mit tollem Balkon und sehr freundlichen Gastgebern

  • 5 of 5

Wir wurden sehr freundlich von Frau Dias, ihrer Tochter und dem Hund empfangen, und mit Tipps für Unternehmungen versorgt. Mit den Rädern, die wir nutzen durften, waren Einkäufe im gut sortierten Supernarkt und der Weg zum Strand schnell erledigt. Die Wohnung im Obergeschoss mit separatem Eingang ist in drei großzügige Räume und Bad aufgeteilt. Die Küche ist gut ausgestattet. Es gibt einen großen Balkon mit Liegen, Tisch und Stühlen, und einen kleinen Pool im Garten für ein erfrischendes Bad. Am Strand kann man spazieren ohne Ende, die abwechslungsreiche Küstenlandschaft und die gepflegten historischen Orte an der Küste und im Hinterland laden zur Erkundung ein.

Local excelente para umas férias em familia

  • 5 of 5

Local calmo fora das ruas mais movimentadas.

Perto de tudo entre Vila Real de Santo António e Tavira.

Grande oferta de estabelecimentos comerciais onde se encontram todos os produtos de que possamos necessitar, assim como restaurantes e actividades culturais.

A poucos minutos a pé dos principais estabelecimentos comercias de Manta Rota e da praia, a qual conta com um grande estacionamento.

A casa tem tudo o que necessitamos para o dia a dia. Cozinha equipada com tudo o que é preciso para cozinhar e pequenos electrodomésticos, como por exemplo, torradeira e máquina de café. Inclui TV, internet via wifi e colunas de ar para ajudar a refrescar.

Espaço confortável, calmo e sentimo-nos como se estivessemos em casa.

A parte exterior é excelente, com um bom terraço que está equipado com toldo, mesa, cadeiras, espreguiçadeiras e ainda um barbecue para assar o excelente peixe da zona.

Excelente piscina com cerca de 8 metros de comprimento, tratada com sal, em que a água permanece entre os 28 e 30 graus em Julho, rodeada por um jardim cuidado e com espreguiçadeiras para usufruir do sol.

Por fim, não podia terminar sem mandar um grande abraço à Dª Maria José pela forma como nos tem recebido em sua casa. Esta foi a segunda vez que nos recebeu e se voltarmos a Manta Rota, seguramente será a primeira escolha para a nossa estadia.
