About Philip Ward & Patrick Ward

We can truly say after spending many years visiting different parts of the Algarve we picked Castro Marim for its sheer unspoilt beauty. Development has been low density and its close proximity to both Seville in Spain and Faro airports with stress free low traffic motorways. The quiet slow moving pace of life was also a big factor in our decision.

Philip Ward & Patrick Ward purchased this villa in 2006

Why Philip Ward & Patrick Ward chose Castro Marim

This part of the Algarve has very little traffic which is evident even in the air you breath in. The slow moving pace of life leaves one feeling stress free and relaxed. The whole area is void of high rise buildings and the scenery is breathtaking. We love the fact that there are 2 airports within easy access and its also within a short driving distance from Spain therefore one can experience different cultures / countries on the one holiday. This area is a little gem and I would highly recommend to anyone trying to get away from it all and experience tranquility.

What makes this villa unique

Our property is in a beautiful quiet location with spectacular views.

Notes on accommodation: The villa is fully air-conditioned and furnished to a very high standard throughout and there are insect screens fitted throughout that should help eliminate insect intrusion if needs be. The entrance hall leads onto a very large dining/living area all open plan and can be made even bigger when the large sliding doors which retract fully into walls are opened onto mezzanine area all shaded from the mid-day sun. The beautiful terrace area off the main bed-room is a great place to relax and have a refreshing cup of tea or glass of wine as there is patio table and chairs at this level also looking out over the golf course and you can see the sea and the bridge over the river onto Spain and the Spanish town of Ayamonte which is very pretty at night with the lights twinkling in the distance. The bedrooms and kitchen have great storage space and there are plenty of full length mirrors throughout. Outside: The 8 x 4 metre swimming pool has a deep and shallow end. There are sliding doors which lead onto a mezzanine area with patio table and chairs and a safety gate leads you down steps to the pool area with sun-loungers and cushions , umbrellas and a BBQ and sink. This area overlooks the golf course but is still very private as its elevated. Utility Room: Just off the kitchen is a little courtyard, with washing machine, tumble dryer, clothes drying rail, great for beach and golf equipment etc. with plenty of storage space. Villa Towels & Linen : Linen and towels are changed weekly. Other: There is a toilet and wash hand basin just off entrance hall. Also beside the private pool there is an outdoor shower, BBQ area and outdoor sink. The mezzanine area just outside sliding doors can add further space.

Excekkent villa and location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I plus son and golf pal stayed at the villa for a week in August. We were delighted with the villa - even better than the photographs shown and immaculate. The location was ideal on a golf course which ensured lovely view and peace and quiet. There were plenty of good beaches and interesting towns to visit - we even took a trip over into Spain which we enjoyed. The highlight was a round of golf ay Monte Rei which has to be among the finest courses in the world - we were treated like royalty and it's a must for any golfer. Superb villa and great holiday! Delighted to recommend.

Special interest holidays:

The Castro Marim complex is situated on the Ria Fermosa nature reserve offering a chance of observing many species of birds. This part of the Algarve offers dining out in style with similar quality and variety to that of the central and western part but at dramatically lower prices and incredible value for money.


There are miles of beautiful unspoilt sandy beaches nearby and just a 20 minute drive away at Tavira there are excellent beach fun activities for children. Also just off the N125 and only 5kms away is the beautiful beach of Praia Verde where Castro Marim have a beach restaurant.


There are 2 very accessible airports that are easy to negotiate and exit, one is Faro which is 45 minutes away and Seville which is 90 minutes away. Trains run frequently from local town Villa Real De San Antonio. The cute little town of Ayamonte just over the border in Spain is just 15 minutes drive away and if you look across from the front entrance of the villa you can see it in the distance the other side of the Guadiana river.


Castro Marim 5 minutes, Monte Gordo 10 minutes, Vila Real de San Antonio 10 minutes and Tavira just 20 minutes away.

Further Details:

The beautiful clubhouse has a warm and welcoming atmosphere and serves top quality food at reasonable prices. The gym and steam room are also at the clubhouse and a well stocked shop with up to the minute golf attire available. There is an ATM machine and 24 hour security on complex. Vila Real De San Antonio has a beautiful Marina with regular ferries a short distance away to Spain. It also has a large supermarket and great variety of shops selling traditional linens and pottery, lots of restaurants, pharmacies etc.
