We stayed in this fabulous villa in June when we attended a wedding in Portugal. It fulfilled all our needs with a spacious well equipped villa in a beautiful rural setting with terraces overlooking unspoilt countryside - a perfect place to relax and enjoy the wildlife. The villa is set in a quiet location in an undiscovered and unspoilt part of the Algarve.
The villa is a short drive to the nearest town of Castro Marim where there are shops and restaurants - and a further ten minute drive is the picturesque coastal town of Vila Reale near the Spanish border with great shops, and local restaurants serving locally caught fish and produce at very reasonable prices.
We certainly hope to return with all our family in the not too distant future
Beautiful views, sunsets,so peaceful, every amenity,beaches short drive away quiet,stretch for miles
I have stayed at this beautiful villa several times now and it is an oasis of peace and tranquility. It’s not the place to stay if you want a lively night life but if you want a holiday where you are surrounded by beautiful uninterrupted views and where the only sound is birdsong or the sound of the sheep moving up from the valley, then this is the place for you. The villa is very well equipped with everything you need. I especially found my bed very comfortable! It is also spacious enough to house a family without getting in each other’s way. The pool and indeed the pool area is blissful and very private. All in all the villa is excellent and I can’t wait to go back there again!
I have now stayed at this villa 9 times with friends and family. I keep going back because it is spacious, comfy with good facilities/bathrooms, lovely view, great pool and BBQ area, good country walks from the house, peaceful and with grounds full of nature especially birds. It is located a couple of miles from the magnificent Castro Marim nature reserve and a bit beyond that is elegant Vila Real de Santo Antonio on the R Guadiana for great shopping and restaurants. Spain is only a short drive away over the bridge, as are some beautiful beaches. The ground agent Luis is extremely helpful with good English.
Had a wonderful break as a party of four friends combining golf on superb eastern Algarve courses with some sightseeing in Portugal and Spain. I have stayed at the villa several times previously with my wife and our three children. We love the tranquility and beautiful rural setting and will definitely be returning.
This is the perfect villa for a family holiday or with a group of friends with spacious accommodation, beautiful pool, a variety of outside eating areas and lovely views down to the river valley. The villa is very well equipped and the games room kept the kids (and adults) amused for hours. Vila Real with it's abundance of restaurants and bars, local shops and market is only a 10 minute drive away. Being on the Spanish border we took the ferry across to Ayamonte and spent a very enjoyable day wandering through it's interesting streets and plazas finishing off with tapas and a bottle of Rioja in one of it's many bars.
There are a number of sandy beaches within easy driving distance as well as a first class golf course where we were made to feel very welcome. A very enjoyable holiday.
