The communal pool and childrens play area is perfect for families, allowing children to make friends and take part in kiddie club activities. A bus is provided to the beach where one can relax and enjoy miles of sandy beach and unspoilt views.

The bus also stops in Vila Real de San Antonio useful if you fancy a drink with lunch or just want to pop to the shops.

Relaxing stay in a villa of a high standard

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at Castro Marim Golf and Country Club, was a very relaxed week stay in a Villa of high standard. Trips to the local beaches, the local castle, and an evening in Monte Gordo added to our stay,

A car is essential, and the east Algarve is a less commercialised than Albufeira and Vilamoura, but this adds to its quaint charm. The clubhouse is worth a visit for lunch or dinner at a fair price and is in a great location. It's walkable from this villa.

This was a very comfortable and well equipped villa. The location is good and the owner very helpful

  • 5 of 5

The villa is all we needed, nice pool and stylish accommodation. It is in a good location, quiet yet reasonably near to towns and beaches. The golf is good and the club house great!

The property was everything we expected. Everything was clean and comfortable. I would love to visit this place again.

An excellent villa that meets expectations and more.

  • 5 of 5

This villa lives up to the listing description. It is excellently maintained and has everything you could possibly want, from a well equipped kitchen, bathroom with each bedroom, air-conditioning and a fantastic swimming pool that overlooks lovely scenery. It's location is perfect for families seeking a holiday with plenty to see and do, as well as the peaceful atmosphere of the beautifully kept three 9 hole golf courses for those who want to play a round. There are several local beaches that won't disappoint, history to explore in the small town of Castro Marim, and with Spain only 15 minutes away, Ayamonte is certainly worth a visit so you can mingle with locals and enjoy the excellent food. The owner is extremely helpful and informative which makes the whole experience superb and seamless, and the friendly staff at the golf club make any visit to the restaurant/bar thoroughly enjoyable - the food is great and BBQ nights are definitely worth booking!

Very spacious and well equipped villa in peaceful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent villa on a large and sparsely developed Golf Resort, perfect for those seeking a relaxing and peaceful holiday. The villa is spacious, well laid out and has a very well equipped kitchen and utility area. Nice pool and BBQ area. There are three nine-hole golf courses on your doorstep for those wishing to swing their clubs and the area has some wonderful beaches close by. The nearest supermarkets are around 15minutes away by car (Lidl and Pingo Doce) in Vila Real de Saint Antonio. The owner is also excellent and I could not fault the customer service.
