About ger. menton

We are Colm and Ger Menton from Dublin, Ireland. We purchased the property in 2005, and holiday here as frequently as we can .We would love to spend longer periods of time here, but due to work commitments it is not feasible just yet. The spacious villa, tranquil setting and private pool, coupled with such close proximity to the golf course, beaches and abundant superb restaurants, most definitely sold this gem to us.

We have three grown up children and although two are non golfers, they look forward with as much enthusiasm to holidaying here as we do ourselves.

ger. menton purchased this villa in 2005

Why ger. menton chose Castro Marim

After a considerable number of years holidaying in various sun/golf resorts we both agreed that we would love to have a place to call our own and visit regularly. The Algarve was top of the list for us. We narrowed it to the eastern Algarve as this area is quite simply unique and in a class of its own.

Located on a golf course and close to other quality courses for variety.

The area has no high rise, is low density and contains only high quality villas and town houses.

Spain is merely 10 minutes away. Faro airport 45 minutes and Seville is 90 minutes. The views, friendly people, wonderful restaurants and wide variety of activities, are just some of the highlights of the magnetism of this area.

What makes this villa unique

The spacious and luxurious villa with its private pool affords a very comfortable and stress free golfing/family holiday. It really is home from home.

Rarely will you find a villa of this calibre within walking distance of the club house, first tee box, two driving ranges and putting green.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Colm and Ger “Fantastic holiday, ticked all the boxes. We’ll most certainly return and recommend to all of our friends, even the non-golfers!” Rob & Lorraine Greenhalgh

Colm and Ger “The villa was breathtaking and exceeded expectations. The Castro Marim resort represents great value for money. We never expected that the Eastern Algarve is truly the place to be when visiting Portugal” Louise & Michael Heney


Thank you for the use of your villa We were very envious of the location which was peaceful yet accessible to many places Having spent the last 16 years holidaying in villas around Europe it is one of the most well proportioned and equipped and most certainly contributed to the enjoyment of the holiday

Stunning Villa with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this villa on a number of occasions and we were never disappointed. The villas is beautiful, always spotlessly clean and has all the comforts of home. It is in a lovely location with panoramic views both to the front and back across the golf course down towards the sea. I would highly recommend this property to any of my friends and family. You are right on the golf course and can avail of all the amenities of the clubhouse including the restaurant and gym. There are lots of lovely, very reasonably prices restaurants in Castro Marim itself and also in nearly Villa Real. We have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending this for a lovely, relaxing holidays.

Special interest holidays:

The eastern Algarve offers incredible value for dining out. Prices are dramatically cheaper than its western counterpart Quinta do Lago. It offers similar variety and quality. One can dine out in style in the local village for 10 euro per person including wine. Similar good value can be found in other towns, such as Villa Real de San Antonio, Monte Gordo and Tavira to name but a few.


Castro Marim is just 10 minutes from vast stretches of white sandy beaches, which are clean unspoilt and renowned for their safety.

Praia Verde, the nearest, is 5kms. With several shops cafes and bars, O Pescador restaurant, serving wonderful fish is located here, and is a must for all fish lovers.


There is a choice of two airports. Faro which is 45 minutes and Seville which is 90minutes.

Both airports are very accessible, easy to negotiate and exit.

Trains run frequently from the local town Villa Real de San Antonio to Faro.

Car hire is recommended to experience what this idyllic part of the Algarve has to offer.


Spain is merely 10 minutes away. Faro airport 45 minutes and Seville is 90 minutes.
