great little apartment

  • 5 of 5

We have visited the lovely town of Villa Real de Santo Antonio many times before, but this was our first time staying there.

This is a great studio rental . As mentioned in another review the décor is simple, but equipped with all you need for a holiday.

The large terrace and roof terrace are great for eating out and looking at the great views of the river and across to Spain.

Perfect quiet location, but close to shops, restaurants and ferry.

Luis was very helpful and you know he is there if needed.

We hope to stay in this apartment again next year.

Pleasant little apartment with huge sun terrace. Convenient for all amenities.

  • 4 of 5

Apartment exactly as shown on the website, perhaps better.

Basic decor, but with everything we needed, including a huge terrace ( and roof terrace) which got the sun all day, and had a view of the river. Great for washing and drying clothes!

Lovely position - short easy walk to free parking, town centre, and riverside. Longer walk to pinewoods, beaches, and large supermarkets.

Owner very helpful and friendly.

We would go back again and would recommend this apartment to others as a simple ,authentic, and convenient place to stay.

Owner's Response: Obrigado pelo comentário, tento sempre melhorar tudo aquilo que seja possível no apartamento de maneira a oferecer aos hóspedes a melhor estadia possível, em relação à vizinha já avisei a minha mãe para não se esquecer de informar os hóspedes para utilizarem os interruptores da luz das escadas correspondentes ao apartamento, em principio esse problema não voltará a acontecer. Com os melhores cumprimentos. Luis Ribeiro

Car: recommended

The apartment (2nd floor) is just opposite the Marina of the Guadiana river and Spain, in the historic area of Pombaline architecture and 100m from a large free car park, which is also in front of the river, behind the Maritime Police Department (Capitania in portuguese). A safe and quiet residential area with good access for people and cars.

Near the apartment, you find a variety of interesting and useful spaces: restaurants and cafes with terraces, Marina, shopping, supermarkets, traditional markets, pharmacies, Marques de Pombal square and the marginal avenue to the Guadiana river with its promenade.

Vila Real de Santo António is a quiet and safe town with great beaches and plenty of sunshine. The locals are hospitable people who like to receive tourists.

The food is excellent and varied: several codfish specialities (Bacalhau grelhado, à braz, etc), grilled Sardine, swordfish, etc, the Monte Gordo shrimp, octopus or tuna salad, or cockles and clams are delicacies easily found in one of the numerous Portuguese cuisine restaurants, but you can also easily find Chinese, Indian or a Take Away grilled chicken "frango churrasco" of the Algarve.

The beaches of Vila Real de St Antonio and Monte Gordo are ones of the Algarve's best beaches. They form a bay with hot summer temperatures and mild temperatures throughout the year with little rain during the year (average of 10 days/year). The calm waters and the extensive fine sandy beaches allows you to use them all year, and most of the bars and restaurants terraces on the beaches do not close during the winter.

All beaches in the area (Vila Real, Monte Gordo, Praia verde, Altura, Manta Rota, Cacela Velha and Cabanas) are excellent clean and safe beaches for swimming. The Vila Real de St Antonio Beach has an ecological path, the " Caminho dos Três Pauzinhos " with access to pedestrians, bicycles and a tourist train available from the Vila Real de Santo António Council.

Suggested activities:

Rent a bike and ride in Vila Real de Santo António and Monte Gordo, city by the sea, connected to Vila Real de St Antonio by comfortable bike trails. Take the ferryboat (very cheap) to Ayamonte and stroll or shop in Spain. Walking or cycling, visit the villages and surrounding beaches (several in a 6 Km radius).

For sports lovers Vila Real de St Antonio has a stadium/sports center approved by the IAAF and certified by the Olympic Committee of Portugal with various sporting activities, and widely used by world-class athletes. Tennis courts and municipal swimming pool are also located near the sports center.

The historic town of Castro Marim with its castles awaits your visit. Several golf courses up to 10 km away are also available - Castro Marim Golf, Quinta do Vale, Monte Rei, etc. It is also worth a visit to Cacela Velha, with its church and a superb view of the Ria Formosa.

If you stay for a longer period, rent a car or go by bus: visit Lepe, Cartaya, Huelva, Seville, Alcoutim and Mértola. Tavira is a beautiful town with 30 churches. There are boat trips on the Guadiana river and bus tours to Seville, Gibraltar, Lisbon, etc.

Have a nice holiday in Vila Real de Santo António

Additional information:

Vila Real de Santo António City

Founded in 1774 by order of the Marquis of Pombal, the city was built in less than two years. The geometric design of the Pombaline urbanism that gave birth to the city, is today its main shopping area. The streets converge to the Marques de Pombal Square, with a central obelisk and four pombalinos turrets.

Much appreciated for its mild winter, the town receives the usual visit of north European tourists seeking to enjoy the pleasant climate temperatures of this Algarve region.

The whole area is flat, allowing comfortable hiking or biking activities throughout the city. Recent Vila Real recreational dock located at the mouth of the River Guadiana is a strong investment in the tourism sector. Due to its privileged position at the mouth of the Guadiana river, in addition to the nationals, this dock welcomes ships from many countries, such as Spain, France, England and the Netherlands among others. From there, you can go up the river and enjoy the coasts views.
