!GASTRONOMY!

Wow! Delicious mediterranean gastronomy combined with significant ocean influence. And a good surprise, price wise, specially out of the peak season.

!ECO TOURISM!

Eco tourism lovers will be enchanted by Odiana suggestions. The natural reaction is 'how does this exist and nobody knows about it?' ... Probably that's the reason for remaining so authentic

!BEACH!

Beach lovers will have endless white sand beaches to discover. To go to Santo Antonio beach, during the summer season, it is enough to walk 250 meters and get the picturesque shuttle train. But Algarve beaches in many of the days of Autumn and Spring may be even more appealing than in summer.

!NAUTICAL SPORTS!

Nautical sports lovers: just choose and count on the friendly local people to materialize your wishes.

!SHOPPING!

Discover the best kept secret of the Iberian Peninsula. Why Portuguese cross the river to shop in Spain and why do the Spanish do the same to shop in Portugal! And both of then return full of packages!!!

and the question and the reply

'where did you go this holiday?' 'to Portugal and Spain!'

Isn't it great? Two countries, two cultures made available by a few minutes ferry boat cruise. And believe us that you feel the difference whenever you change country

More reasons? Build your own memories to keep visiting them in the future

Vila Real de Santo António is situated on the Rio Guadiana, which is the river that divides the Algarve from Spain. If you stand on the far eastern edge of Vila Real you can easily see the Spanish coastline and the bridge over the river that connects the town to Ayamonte in Spain. The bridge was built in the early 1990s and has made a big difference to the congestion in and around the town because people can now drive straight there instead of waiting for a ferry.

Vila Real is very easy to find your way around, because it is laid out on a grid system. The town was designed that way by the Marquês de Pombal who was keen to apply the latest concept of town planning after the sea had eroded all of the original settlements in the area at the beginning of the 17th century.

At the end of the 19th century the town was a major canning centre for sardines and tuna, and the port was busy with the ships that sailed the Guadiana. It was also the first place in the Algarve to have gas lighting (1886). It is still a thriving community based on fishing, agriculture and tourism.

The main road runs straight from Monte Gordo to Vila Real, and the Avenida da República runs along the front of the town, adjacent to the Rio Guadiana. The river front is attractively laid out with trees and water features and there is also a marina where you can watch the boats.

Vila Real has a large town square, 'Praça Marquês de Pombal', which is edged with orange trees and populated with low white buildings, shops, cafes and restaurants. Just behind the square there is a space called the Centro Cultural António Aleixo, which used to be the old market. Today it is used for temporary exhibits and events. There is also a museum, Museu de Manuel Cabanas, where you can go to see the works of a local painter and wood engraver.

In essence, Vila Real is a relaxed and peaceful town and ideal for anyone who likes the quieter side of life, or to escape the stresses from home. It’s beautifully quaint, with lots to see and do, particularly for those who like to potter around and absorb the local culture. Like Monte Gordo, Vila Real is also very flat, so is ideal for walking and cycling.

Vila Real has a lovely open sandy beach, which stretches for several kilometres uninterrupted towards Manta Rota, near to Tavira. The better route to follow is signposted through the pine forest between Monte Gordo and Vila Real with plenty of parking right behind the beach.

Vila Real de Santo António is one of three municipalities that make up the 'Baixo Guadiana' region. Vila Real, Castro Marim and Alcoutim, are the three Algarvean Sotavento (eastern Algarve) municipalities that have been collectively coined 'Baixo Guadiana' and have. Linked by the Guadiana River, these places, with a total area measuring 940km², under the umbrella organization 'Odiana', have become recognised for their beautiful environment, where sun, sea, river, mountain and friendly people coexist. Local fauna and flora characterise both the significance and potential of a region that is extremely important for a sustained ecosystem; this includes many marshes and dunes, which are important habitats for the reproduction of crustaceans and bivalves. The two protected areas, Ria Formosa Natural Park and the Natural Marsh Reserve of Castro Marim and Vila Real de Santa António span 20,489ha and are abundant with wildlife, with hundreds of different species of birds, mammals, fish, amphibians, reptiles and plants.

A relaxing way to see this eastern end of the Algarve (and the western end of Spain) is to take a boat trip along the Guadiana to Alcoutim. It passes through some beautiful countryside and changes from the very flat scenery around Vila Real to a backdrop of rounded hills with lush vegetation and a few houses here and there until you arrive at Alcoutim. Here you can see castles on hilltops on both banks of the river as reminders of the past.
