THE BLUE HOUSE IN THE HEART OF SANTA RITA VILLAGE

Vila Nova de Cacela House Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 4. 2 Bedrooms. 1 Bathroom stunning views

Other cottages available in this Historic village through us for multi family holidays.

A Portuguese Home set in the most amazing Village in the East Algarve.

Santa Rita has its own Chapel that is with in a stones throw from the house.

The town has its very own new internet Café that sells coffee beer selection of food and drink and is very friendly.

also the town has a very old bar that makes tourists and locals alike welcome.

The area is rural with the daily passing of sheep and goats going home from a long day of grazing the local fields.

Tavira

The historical past of this city is very rich and can be seen on its buildings and on the street planning of the historical center. Also known as the “cidade das igrejinhas” (little churches town), it is apart away from the crowded places of the Algarve and boasts the spectacular Tavira Island and the fabulous Ria Formosa.

Picturesque and unique, Tavira is a mix of wonderful architecture, saltpans, enchanted beaches, mountain ranges, windmills and (of course) churches, crossed by the river Gilhão. A roman bridge makes the connection between both margins of the river, and both sides of Tavira.

Ria Formosa Natural Park

The Ria Formosa Park is one of the most beautiful natural wealths of the Algarve, both for the variety of its ecosystems and for its singular location. This incredible natural paradise spreads along 60 km, from the Ancão area (belonging to Loulé council) to the Manta Rota zone (on the Vila Real de Santo António council) and is the shelter for migratory and rare bird species.

There are only 2 rivers that feed the lagoon all year round. The rest of the streams and rivers are seasonal and dry up during the summer. The areas exposed in the lagoons can be completely submerged due to tidal influences. Islands in the area are sensitive and unstable and vary from 500 metres to 2 kilometres.

The area is used for mussel and oyster farming, though traditionally it was used for salt production as well as agriculture.

The objectives of the park are to preserve and develop natural resources. This helps in the preservation of natural habitats of wildlife. Although there is human activity in the park, it does not alter the equilibrium of the ecosystem as everything is done in a traditional way.

Castro Marim

Castro Marim provides a stark contrast to Monte Gordo and it nestles between two hills. Even though they are low hills they have a commanding view of the broad estuary of the river Guadiana, which marks the frontier between the Algarve and the Spanish province of Andalusia.

The larger of Castro Marim's two separate fortifications stands on the hill on the riverside of the road winding through the village. You can drive almost right up to the front gate and then walk around within the battlements. You will see that there is a castle within a castle. The inner one is square with a cylindrical tower at each corner. In the 15th-century, this was the headquarters of the Order of Christ, the religious-military order that succeeded the Knights Templar in Portugal. Later, the castle was greatly expanded. In the 17th-century it was augmented by a second fortification, the Fort of São Sebastião, which stands on the other side of the village. The fort was built to strengthen Portugal's defences when it regained its independence after 60 years of Spanish subjugation (between 1580 and 1640).

The area around Castro Marim is a protected natural reserve (Reserva Natural do Sapal), rich in bird life. Its salt pans and marshes are feeding and breeding grounds for many species of water birds, including Black-winged Stilts, Avocets and Little Terns. Flocks of several hundred flamingos may be seen feeding in the pans out of breeding season. For directions and information about the species you can expect to see, ask the office just inside the main gate of the castle. There are also guided tours, but you have to book in advance.

ZooLagos

The idea to build the Lagos Zoological Park grew very gradually.

As a particular collection of animal species in a farm grew up, the tourists that passed by, as well as the local residents and even the schools from the region asked if they could tour the farm.

To develop from what was a hobby into a real commercial project, and facing the fact that there wasn't in the Lagos region, any location where conservation, education and Nature protection were of any great meaning, the Lagos Zoological Park became reality, a perfect world that everybody can reach.

Lagos Zoological Park is near Barão de S. João next to the road between Bensafrim and Barão de S. João.

Zoomarine

A fascinating entertaining and educational oceanographic facility taking its theme from the links the Algarve has with the sea. Take your family to the Zoomarine and enjoy a wonderful day watching dolphins, seals, sharks, turtles, exotic birds, seabirds, crocodiles and tropical fish.

Zoomarine’s characteristics, exhibitions and shows of an exceptionally high standard make it unique in Portugal.

In a tranquil setting offset by lakes and gardens Zoomarine has created the right environment to reveal the 'secrets of the sea'.

The park has all the requisite amenities you need for a happy family outing: restaurants, shops, amusements and swimming pools.

New international zip line connecting Portugal and Spain.

By downloading kayak app you can benefit from cheap flights direct to and from Faro airport.

When you book one week discount available on second week booking.
