HOW TO EXPLORE VILA REAL DE SANTO ANTÓNIO

HOW TO EXPLORE VILA REAL DE SANTO ANTÓNIO

An area worth exploring 

Ok its not the most popular Algarve holiday rental destination.  Booking a holiday in a Algarve Villa type property in nearby Tavira would be more popular.  Never the less Vila Real de Santo Antonio is a stunning holiday location.  It is located on the Rio Guadiana; which is the river that divides Algarve from Spain.  If you stand on the far eastern edge of Vila Real on the side of the street you can easily see the Spanish coastline and the bridge that connects the town to Spain.

Charming place

Vila real is a relaxing and very peaceful town and it’s ideal for everyone who like the quiet side of life, or have a different holiday away from home. The place is charming with a lot to see and do.  Especially those who like learning about the local culture.  It is also ideal for taking walks and cycling since the area is flat.

Sandy Beaches

Vila Real has a gorgeous open sandy beach, which stretches for several kilometers.  There is a narrow road that is used to access the beach. There is plenty of parking if you decide to drive to the beach.

Lots to explore

There are lots of places to explore around Vila Real but one to make top of your agenda is Cacela Velha. It is a very small village with a handful of typically Algarvean whitewashed houses around a Church and a fort situated on the waterfront just past Manta Rota.  There isn’t a lot to do there it has to be said, but the village and the views are truly delightful. There are a couple of restaurants if you want to linger for a while – the one on the right just as you come into the village has an upstairs terrace giving great panoramic views across the beaches of Manta Rota and Monte Gordo to Vila Real all set against a backdrop of lush green countryside. About the only sounds ‘disturbing’ the total peace and quiet are from the birds and a few chickens!

Booking a holiday in one of stunning villas in Algarve is always a good choice.   Booking one near Vila Real is an excellent choice.  Nearby Tavira apartments are always in demand.   As are the wonderful East Algarve Golf courses.

 

The pretty Spanish town of Ayamonte, on the opposite bank of the Guadiana is fun to visit for a tapas lunch and maybe a spot of shopping! To save driving, a ferry regularly crosses between the two towns – the journey takes around 15 minutes. Just remember that Spain is an hour ahead of Portugal!

This is a great place to explore with family too as there are Ayamonte holiday apartments and Spanish villas situated close by most of the exciting places that you intend to visit.  This makes movement easier and with ease.
