The beautiful Ria Formosa!: The Ria Formosa in the Algarve is a beautiful labyrinth of lagoons separated from the sea by a coastal dune system which is broken up by various natural inlets. It is one of the most important nature reserves in the network of wetlands that links Europe and sub-Saharan Africa. The Ria has an enormous variety of natural habitats that provide refuge, feeding and breeding areas for an infinite number of flora and fauna and is a haven for birds.

The beaches of the isles of Faro, Barreta, Culatra, Armona and Tavira form a natural barrier to the Ocean. Behind are the dunes, sometimes just a narrow strip and sometimes wider and then come the labyrinth of lagoons and small sand islands and channels. At low tide other salty habitats are uncovered forming marches and salt marshes.

Golfers note!: If you're looking for a golfer's paradise, then look no further than the Algarve for your ultimate golfing experience.

With it's brilliant, sunny climate and dramatic courses throughout the region, it's easy to see why the Algarve is the most popular golfing destination in Europe.

There are over 30 golf courses in the Algarve, ranging from 9-hole courses stretched over the Algarve grassland, to dramatic coastal 18-hole courses set amongst the picturesque cliffs.

This makes golf here enjoyable for everyone, regardless of ability, and guarantees that you will find the perfect course for you.

About Andrew Derrick

Both Else and I worked in London for many years before deciding to seek warmer climes! We have two grown up children, now working in London and have been managing properties in the East Algarve for over seven years. We live nearby and are available for help or advice during you stay here.

Why Andrew Derrick chose Vila Real de St Antonio region

We bought Casa Betel in 2005, initially as the house for us to live in. As a result, the house has a very 'lived in' feel with our own pictures on the wall, a piano and other personal items. The East Algarve is wonderfully portuguese. It is a beautiful place to come at all times of the year. In summer it is very warm and almost always with blue skis and sunshine. The winters are also sunny and with temperatures during the day of 16 to 18 c it is extremely pleasant. Of course there are also far fewer people and is wonderfully calm and peaceful.

Wonderful Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This property is perfect for a family holiday and the hosts are an absolute pleasure to deal with - responsive and pleasant! The pictures and description accurately depict the house, which has everything you need, from the smallest kitchen gadget to pool toys and beach mats. Bedrooms are spacious and private, some with ensuites, which make it convenient for a group. We were a group of 7 adults and 2 children and had more than enough space and privacy. We spent a lot of time around the pool and adjoining eating area when not at the beach or exploring countryside. The house was spotlessly clean when we arrived, yet still felt homey. It is just a short walk to the beach (5-10 minutes) and there are sufficient cafes, restaurants, small grocery stores, butcher shop, etc within walking distance. A car is not needed to enjoy your stay, but nice to have if you which to explore the area a bit - which we did: a day trip to Saville, Tavira (where we lucked in on a local food and music festival) and Carvoiero (highly recommend the boat trip and/or renting kayaks to see the caves). However, the Eastern Algarve is lovely in itself, especially if you prefer a more authentic Portuguese experience as the majority of the tourists are Portuguese, unlike the central Algarve, which attracts a lot of international tourists. The beaches are flat and long, which is nice for small children. However, it is worth visiting the cliffs and picturesque beaches in the Central Algarve. One small tip - for those who may be light sleepers - you may wish to choose the bedrooms on the main floor or those that face the courtyard rather than the pool. The house backs on to a farm, which is nice for privacy - but you may wake up to the roosters crowing early in the morning and dogs barking during the night. We would love to return for another holiday and recommend this house without reservation. Thanks Andrew and Else for the enjoyable stay!

Beautiful well equipped villa, perfect for families.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful holiday at casa betel. There were 4 adults and 6 children ranging from 3 - 8. The villa was well equipped for families and was very spacious. The swimming pool was definitely the highlight for the children and we had difficulty getting them out! The outside eating area was great and used for all our meals. The added bonus of the pool table, ping pong and darts allowed some fun competitions.

The local town was a 5 minute walk away and had a reasonable selection of bars cafes and restaurants. The supermarket was well stocked and the local market had some fantastic fresh fruit and veg.

The beach was beautiful but busy and we tended to walk down for an hour or so to collect shells and paddle.

Overall we had a fantastic time. Thankyou

A fabulous house, perfect for a family holiday. Very well equipped

  • 5 of 5

We had a family of ten ranging from granny down to baby, everyone had fabulous rooms, everything was clean and luxurious, the private pool made the holiday for the teenagers, along with the pool table and table tennis, we forgot to take darts but there was still plenty to do! The town of Manta Rota isn't big on night life. But with a big mixed family with children we were happy to stay in most nights. There are some lovely restaurants and supermarkets not far away. The Restaurants and the fair don't open till seven ish so plan late nights! The nearby beach is stunning and very clean. A fantastic holiday and the owners Andrew and Else were very helpful and only a five minute drive away. We had an amazing time.

Perfect holiday in a wonderful villa.

  • 5 of 5

Casa Betel is like a home away from home. We have just returned after spending 10 days there and we are all wishing we were still there. The villa has a very homely feel, its like you are borrowing someones home for your holiday. It is very well equipped and had everything we needed. On our arrival it was clean and tidy and during our stay we had visits from the pool cleaner, gardener and cleaners to help keep it tidy.

We were a group of 4 adults and 6 children (ranging in ages from 16 to 7 years). The pool was perfect, the kids were in it everyday, morning and afternoon. The garden is split into 2 sections with the pool on one side and the games area the other which works really well.

The grounds of the villa are very secure and can be locked up to give parents that extra peace of mind.

Andrew was on hand by phone to help with any concerns we may have had, but we had none, our stay was hassle-free.

Manta Rota is a small village very much off the tourist track, which was just what we wanted. In the town there are lots of places to eat (we would highly recommend Mars Bar) and buy ice creams - a must for the kids. There are also 2 supermarkets within a 5 minute walking distance where you pick up everything you need.

The beach is stunning, so clean and only a 10 minute walk from the villa. It can be crowed but if you just walk in either direction along the shore for 10/15minutes the crowds thin out and its a lot quieter. Its very accessible as well with a long wooden gangplank - we visited nearly everyday.

We didn't hire a car but this didn't stop us getting out and about as it is only a 25minute walk to the train station in the next village of Cacela. The trains are very good value for money and were running on time for all our trips to Tavira, Faro and Vila Real.

I would highly recommend Casa Betel to family and friends and anyone reading this review. We would definitely return.

Superb

  • 5 of 5

We've had a fantastic family holiday at casa betel. The owners are very helpful and always on hand. The villa is spotlessly clean and has everything you need. I particularly liked the fact that the kitchen opens up onto the pool and barbecue area. We loved the pool and children spent more time in it than out. The barbecue area is also great, allowing plenty of seating under a lovely shady gazebo, which is also well lit at night for evening dining. The pool table was well used by the men in the family.. Manta rota itself is a small friendly town, which has everything you need. There's a handful of restaurants, one in particular on the beach is amazing, we ate there twice. There's even a small arcade a short walk away which the children liked as a treat. The beautiful sandy beach stretches for miles and miles. My husband and I went for some lovely long walks to neighbouring villages. I honestly could not find fault with this fantastic villa and hope to return in the future. Thank you Andrew and else for a great holiday

Beautiful villa

  • 4 of 5

Just returned from Casa Betel and we found it to be a lovely welcoming and peaceful place.There were 9 of us ranging from Grandparents to grandchildren and the villa fitted everyone of us brilliantly from the rooms to the pool area and games area. The town of Manta Rota is a small and welcoming place with places to eat and drink at very reasonable prices and the beach was great and all within easy walking distance from the villa.We will be returning of that there is no doubt.

Manta Rota is a small town next to Altura, with a strong Portuguese feel to it. The town includes bars, restaurants and supermarkets, all within walking distance of the villa. The beach is 6 minutes walk from the villa, a beautiful sandy beach stretching for miles. To the right of the beach is the Rio Formosa, a nature reserve stretching 67 kilometres along the coast to Faro. The villa is within ten minutes drive of several top golf courses, including the newly opened Jack Nicklaus course at Monte Rei and the Ballesteros course at Quinta do Vale.

Golf: If you're looking for a golfer's paradise, then look no further than the Algarve for your ultimate golfing experience.
