JUST FOR 2- HOUSE/VILLA WITH SEA VIEWS IN VILA NOVA DE MILFONTES

Vila Nova e Milfontes House Rental Photos and Description

Casa do Mira is a beautiful village house, in a stunning location.

Casa Do Mira has been tastefully renovated, still retaining a rustic charm with hand made traditional terracotta flooring throughout and accompanying marble. Yet it has all the modern conveniences to ensure your stay is as comfortable as possible.

After extensive work earlier this year (2011), we now have a beautiful roof terrace complete with barbecue. On the roof are benches, tables and chairs and stunning views to both the River Mira and the coast.

The beautiful village of Vila Nova de Milfontes is situated on the estuary of the River Mira in the Alentejo Region of Portugal. It is still relatively undiscovered and retains its Portuguese charm, quite different from the more developed areas of the Algarve. It is approximately a one hour and thirty minute drive from Faro airport.

The village is located in one of the most preserved regions of the European coast with beautiful sandy unspoilt beaches, hidden coves and clear waters.

For those of you who like to explore further afield, there is the historic town of Odemira which is a 15 minute drive and is situated on a hill over the River Mira. Or you can discover some of the best Roman ruins in Europe situated in Evora. For those of you who wish to enjoy shopping and sightseeing the beautiful capital city of Lisbon is just 190 kms away Alternatively, travelling south to the Algave, the town of Lagos can be reached within one and a half hours. For nature lovers you can travel inland through the protected cork forests to the lakes where if you are very lucky you can spot the very rare black storks.

The coastal strip surrounding Vila Nova De Milfontes boasts impressive beaches and coves such as Almograve, Zambujeira do Mar and Cabo Sardao where storks nest in the crags that cannot be seen anywhere else in the world.

Our guests are able to enjoy the many restaurants and bars, and sample the delights of Portuguese cuisine and wine. So within a short stroll of the house there are many outdoor cafes and restaurants offering fresh seafood, particularly at the beach restaurants where you can experience the delights of the barbecued sea bream to be accompanied by local Alentejo wines. The village square offers entertainment in the main summer months. The river is good for water sports, kayaking and boat trips.There is also a small ferry service across the estuary to the large sandy beaches of Furnas.

During August, the village is very popular and is visited by both Portuguese and foreign holiday makers, and so becomes a very lively place to enjoy.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We enjoyed our stay in Casa do Mira. I congratulate you for your good taste, the decoration is very nice.

Everything was ready and gathered for a good stay.

We are loving the Alentejo coast and all beaches from Zambujeira to Sines.

We appreciated to be in the center of the city.

The accomodation was excellent, clean and well maintained, exactly as described and shown in the photos. It is in a very good location, close to the beach. Good supermarkets, a food indoor market and restaurants are all within walking distance.

CASA DO MIRO

  • 5 of 5
A charming house in a delightful, unspoilt part of Portugal. Although Milfontes is obviously a popular holiday town (a particular favourite of the Portuguese) it retains the feel of the real Portugal, unlike, unfortunately, much of the Algarve now. We explored the area and its varity of small towns and sandy bays as well as just wandering around the town, sitting watching the sea, enjoying the last of the sun on the balcony with a glass of wine in hand! A very relaxing, most enjoyable holiday in a well equipped, very clean and comfortable house. Wouldn't hesitate to recomment it.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. We are always plesed to hear that guests have enjoyed their stay and do our best to retain the standards that we would expect ourselves. We are endeavouring to improve the accommodation further next year by adding a roof terrace to take full advantage of the views towards the river and the coast.

A REAL FIND!

  • 5 of 5
This place was excellent and I would recommend it to anyone! It was set in a beautiful part of Portugal and retained its traditional charm. The villa was centrally located and very well equipped making it such a fabulous holiday find.

This part of Portugal offered fantastic sweeping sandy beaches and beautiful coves. It was great travelling up and down the coast line to see what was on offer.

If you are after a getaway without masses of tourists, in a charming place place and quality acommodation, just for two, then this villa is it!

CASA DO MIRA

  • 5 of 5
We had a very relaxing break at Casa do Mira. The lovely little house is perfectly situated, with a view of the river and the sea from the balcony. The house is very tastefully furnished, spotlessly clean and very well equipped. We couldn't have asked for anything more. It was great to know that the local agents were available for help and advice. We loved the little town of Vila Nova de Milfontes - it has everything - great bars and restaurants at very reasonable prices, and some lovely shops. Thank-you for a great holiday!
