Vila Real de Santo Antonio House Rental Photos and Description
4 bedroom villa with private pool in nature reserve near beach
Santa Helena can be found in the small rustic village of San Bartolomeu (just off the EN125) set in the Nature Reserve between Castro Marim & Praia Verde. Served by two airports, Faro (35 mins.) and Seville (90 mins.), it is a modern, 2000+ square foot, beautifully finished 4 bed house. It is tastefully decorated throughout. There is a private pool to the front which enjoys all-day sun. To the rear is a large sunny terrace overlooking the lush green hills. Sleeps 8. Ideally suited to a family or golfing holiday. Superb location being only a 5 minute drive to almost anywhere...beach, golf and a number of bustling towns. Santa Helena is also available for short midweek or weekend breaks. Alternatively discount rates are available for stays in excess of two weeks. And we would be delighted to discuss longterm letting at very competitive prices.
Convenient Location: Santa Helena enjoys prime location nestling in a village in the countryside yet less than 5 minutes drive to beach, shopping, restaurants, golf. Although the village itself is rustic and quiet with a church, two restaurants, a 'local' bar and a mini-market, the busy resorts of Altura (5 mins), Monte Gordo (5 mins), Manta Rota (7 mins), Cabanas (10 mins), and Tavira (15 mins) are only a short drive away. Vila Real da San Antonio, a large frontier town built on the banks of the Guadiana river is also close by (5 - 10 mins). You can be in Spain in just 8 minutes from the house! Only 1.5km from the beach in very up-market Praia Verde - this beautiful beach stretches for about 30km to the Ria Formosa lagoon. Numerous golf courses within easy reach : Monte Rei (Jack Nicklaus' 36-hole signature course), Castro Marim, Benamor, Quinta da Rio and Quinta da Cima are all within a 5-15 minute drive.
