In the vicinity
There is plenty to do in and around Monte Gordo, if you want to discover the vicinity.
Vila Real de Santo António is the nearest town, only 3km away in a straight line through a pine forest. This part of the Algarve is very flat, making it ideal for hiking and cycling. There are some bicycle rentals near the apartment. But you can also take the bus if you prefer, the bus stop is right nearby!
Vila Real de Santo António was founded in 1774 by Marquês de Pombal and the city scheme is similar to downtown Lisbon.
The must see spots are: the Marquês de Pombal Square, the marina and the old town, where you will be surprised by the countless architectural details of the older buildings. One of them is the border building where now you can take the ferry and cross the river Guadiana to the town of Ayamonte in neighbouring Spain.
Another town of sightseeing interest is Castro Marim, located 6km away.
Its ancient castle and stronghold still stand and have been recently restored. These monuments are a reminder of ancient times in the Algarve; times where no one wanted to come on vacation!
Here you can see countless salt-pans, some of which are recognised world-wide for the quality of their salt, and stroll through the Natural Reserve marshes. The Reserve covers a vast area of 2000 hectares. Between Castro Marim, Vila Real de Santo António and Monte Gordo, and is the habitat of hundreds of species of birds, including white storks, avocets, black-winged stilt, and many other waders, and also the colourful greater flamingos. There are also hundreds of plant species, some reptiles, amphibians and mammals.
Within the top sightseeing spots we highlight Cacela Velha, a typical Algarve village with whitewashed houses around the stronghold and church and a fantastic view over the Ria Formosa Natural Park, where we suggest you taste the local seafood.
In this area there are also several golf courses nearby, and you can take jeep safaris and boat trips along the Guadiana River or practice water sports of all kinds, especially kitesurfing and windsurfing.
