About this location

The Algarve region

The villa is situated 2km inland off the EN125 coastal road near Manta Rota & Vila Nova de Cacela 5 minutes from A22 motorway junction 17 near the Spanish border. The villa is in a small quiet Portuguese village, with lovely views out over the surrounding countryside.The area is the most popular amongst Portuguese holiday makers who prefer the eastern Algarve for its superb uncrowded spacious beaches.

The unspoilt beautiful blue flag, sandy beaches of Manta Rota and Altura are close by, as are the beaches of Monte Gordo and Praia Verde.

There is a clear definition between the Western Algarve and the Eastern. Whilst the West shows more development towards tourism, the Eastern Algarve and its tidal marshlands still have a tranquil beauty, and the small resorts along the coast have retained much of their character, looking today as they must have looked in days gone by. Here, tourism blends in perfectly with local activities creating a relaxed way of life.

Fantastic golf courses are in abundance being only 10 minutes' drive from Quinta Da Ria with its beautiful sea views and Quinta Da Cima , a lovely challenging course. Benamor is 15 minutes away an interesting course with fine views also Castro Marim Golf Course with stunning views over the River Guadiana. Just across into Spain you can play the Islantilla Golf Course which has hosted the Spanish Open.

Lawn Bowls is played at nearby Cabanas,is open to visitors and boasts the best greens in Portugal

Manta Rota

The villa is situated in the small countryside village of Portela. The nearest resorts are Manta Rota and Altura. Manta Rota sits on a sheltered and vast unspoilt beach.The resort has benefited from recent major regeneration of the esplanade,with impressive extensive wide beach boardwalks, new restaurants, supermarket and children's play areas all with extensive free car parking. The area is flat and popular with hire bike cyclists. Add to this a sublime uncrowded beaches and some of the warmest sea temperatures on the Algarve- you've all the ingredients for a perfect holiday.

Altura is a quiet Algarve resort with its wide sandy expanse of beach and is perfect for families, being fully equipped with good facilities such as shops, banks, bars and several restaurants. The nearest town is close by at Vila Nova de Cacela with its popular monthly market ,shops and train station.

The biggest resort is Monte Gordo with its casino and nightlife, and discover pretty historic Vila Real de San Antonio, only 15 minutes away on the boder with Spain. There's much to attract in San Antonio, including a choice of restaurants and shops along the riverside. Take a short inexpensive ferry trip over to Spain via the River Guadiana to contrasting Ayamonte with its choice of shops, bars,small zoo,art galleries and museums.

Car hire is recommended , to give you the freedom to push out into historic Tavira, an old habour town with its cobbled streets, famous roof tops, castle ruins, restaurants and bars.Aqualand and ZooMarine are great family attractions both 45 mins away.Close by is the magnificent Ria Formosa National Park a wonderful protected area great for walking and a must for bird watchers where many species can be observed as they stop over on their migration from Northern Europe to Africa.

"Brilliant villa in very quiet surroundings"

Very well equipped villa within a short drive to the sea and amenities. Villa was very clean and well kept. Owners had gone to a lot of trouble in providing information on day trips and local shops and restaurants. Great swimming pool which was surprisingly warm. Air conditioning was very welcome when it became hot in the evenings . Local area has lots of great beaches and interesting old villages and towns. Crossing over to Spain by ferry makes a great day out .Locally based English property management company were very helpful . Very reasonably priced - would definitely go back again.

"This excellent villa had everything our family needed for a totally relaxing holiday."

Our stay at Casa de Carlyn was great. The villa is situated in an extremely quiet rural area, literally only about 6 houses nearby, so it is very peaceful but only 5 minutes drive from the shops and restaurants of Manta Rota. It is in very good condition, fully equipped with all that we needed. The air conditioning in the bedrooms was really appreciated as temperatures during our stay in mid-August hit 40 degrees for a couple of days and didn't dip below 30 degrees overnight!! As parents to two children (9 and 8yrs old) we are used to holidays where the children still need entertaining - not at Casa de Carlyn for our 2. Everyday they had hours and hours of fun in the swimming pool which was a good enough size for races and games but small enough to reach the side quickly or touch the bottom in most places if needed. Then they had the back up of the table tennis table, DVD player and extensive English Sat TV for when it got too hot. Allowing my husband and I to actually sit, relax & read - bliss!!! The local area is very popular with Portuguese so not many British holiday makers or English style restaurants/entertainment. Restaurants provide fantastic, simple, tasty food at affordable prices. The villa's information folder was excellent for all the local things to do. I have to admit we didn't spends days on the local beaches as it was extremely hot & the villa had everything we needed - but they looked fantastic. Thanks you Peter - we had a thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing time and would love to come back another year. Philippa

"A very comfortable villa for easy holiday living"

We found the villa spotlessly clean, comfortable and well equipped for a holiday rental and in a lovely, quiet hamlet in the countryside but near enough to reach local amenities and beaches within minutes by car. We felt the owners cared about their property and their guests and we have already booked another stay at this villa.

"Excellent location and a high quality villa to a high quality finish,in a 'real' Portual setting."

The villa was of exceptional quality with superb decor and large rooms throughout and had nicely landcaped grounds to relax in. Loved the pool which is big enough to swim a few strokes in (unusual in villas with their own pool for rental). The settling was exactly what we were looking for - within a small hamlet of Portuguese dwellings and the locals, who despite speaking little or no English, were extremely friendly and welcoming.
We were able to book the dates we wanted (Late May 2011) and had no problems in the booking and confirmation side. The Villa is about 45 minutes from Faro ( straight forward journey, majority via lightly traffic motorway. The instructions given for' to and from' the Airport were very clear and we easilly found the Villa. However you would probably need to hire a car to get to / from the villa and getting around. Being only 15 minutes drive to the border with Spain and 5 minutes or so drive to the lovely deserted local beach of Manta Rota was just what we wanted. Whilst having plent to do, see and restaurants to eat at close by, it was well away from the traditional British rowdy resorts (areas that we like to avoid). The area has a feel of 'real Portugal' and I suspect this is where they prefer to spend their holidays within the Algarve.There were at least 4 Golf courses within 15 minute drive and numerous more within a 30 minute drive. Played 2 local courses that were both very good but expensive (although managed to get deals via web offers / specials). Both couses very very quite and had no problems getting tee times. If you like a large spacious villa, decorated and furnished to a high quality in a quiet area, and wish to blend in with the Portuguese; then this is right up there.
