Villa on Castro Marim Golf Course, The Perfect Year Round Destination in a Beautiful Tranquil Location
We are an English couple with two teenage girls. We bought the villa in 2005 and use the villa several times a year for family holidays, weekend getaways, or golfing breaks. We would like to use it more but work gets in the way!
Owner purchased this Villa in 2005
Why Owner chose Castro Marim
We bought the villa as it is on the less developed end of the Algarve, but still accessible to Faro airport which is only 40 mins drive away. The towns are more Portuguese in flavour and this is where the Portuguese themselves holiday. We holiday here throughout the year and I organise a couple of golfing breaks, and with over 12 courses within a 20 min drive there are lots to choose from. The girls enjoy the private pool, going to the beach, shopping at the stalls in Vila Real de San Antonio and Monte Gordo, together with the evening entertainment.
What makes this Villa unique
The villa is a short walk from the clubhouse, with it's gym, pool table, bar and restaurant. It is also a short walk to the 2 driving ranges, short game practice and putting green. There are several putters in the villa for a family putting challenge!

Great villa on a lovely resort. In addition to having your own private pool, there’s also shared larger pools which keep the children entertained. A pool table in the bar and restaurant and Happy Hour each evening. Many deals on food and golf and nights out provided by the clubhouse. Peter is a super host and very helpful. Thank you!
Spacious, well equipped and clean villa in nice quiet location next to the beautiful golf course but just a short drive to coast.
Only very minor issues with the single beds and shower screens which is reason for 4 stars.
Would highly recommend.
Relaxing family break
Ideally located for popping across the border into Spain, this property is situated within a golf resort in a quiet part of the Algarve, but you don't need to play golf to enjoy it! Car hire a definite advantage, as it isn't within walking distance of anything, but equally, you could just relax within the resort if you just want a quiet break away from the hustle of everyday life, and the club house has a bar/restaurant. Peter was quick to respond to enquiries, and gave us lots of really useful information pre arrival. The house itself has absolutely everything you could possibly need to holiday in luxury, and was spotlessly clean. Upstairs is given over to the master bedroom suite, with a huge balcony, which was lovely. The patio gets the sun from morning until mid evening, and has good views across one of the golf courses. The beat of music could be heard coming from the club house on a couple of nights (presume there was a function on) but other than that it was blissfully quiet, and we spent time every day just relaxing by the private pool. Lovely early season family break!
The villa was just perfect for our family of four. Superb fixtures and fittings with everything you need for a break away. The villa is spacious cool and airy. We especially loved the pool and BBQ area.
We found lots of supermarkets, restaurants and bars in the surrounding towns of Monte Gordo and Vila Real which catered to our every need.
Peter (the owner) was so very helpful answering all the questions we had. Thank you!
We hope to return in the future to this wonderful villa in a lovely area of Portugal.
Loved the property. Peaceful, spacious, Clean and functional.
Everything was ready when we arrived. Very spacious property with really nice pool and deck area. Close to everything. Didn't have time to use the club house or play golf but it all looked nice. Would rent it again.
I am glad you enjoyed your stay, thanks for the kind words. There is always something new to do and we look forward to welcoming you back!
We are a family of 4 ( 2 adults and 2 teenagers) and have just returned from a 2 week holiday at the villa. We had a fabulous holiday and can't fault the villa it has everything you need for a fantastic break. The villa is a great base to explore the local area and information provided by Peter was very helpful. This was our 4th time to the area and we ventured to Seville, Aquashow and took the Zipwire from Spain to Portugal. We would recommend this villa !!
We are glad that you enjoyed your stay in our villa and also made the most of the local attractions. We look forward to welcoming you back!
