Lovely Villa!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at Castro Marim in Tom's villa. It is well equipped and very spacious with a good size private pool. There are enough sun loungers for 6 people too. (Which we have found is not always the case!!)

The location is brilliant and well located to play golf, visit the beach or pop over the border to Spain. In Portugal, we really enjoyed a trip to the picturesque Tavira! Would definitely come back!

Lovely Villa

  • 5 of 5

This is our third stay at this villa, which says it all. A lovely, very well equipped, clean, modern and spacious villa that is ideal for families. We love the location as it is quiet but Vila Real is only 10 mins drive. You definitely need a car to explore the area and visit the lovely beaches. I would highly recommend this villa and location.
