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.

We are actively involved in our rental home. We live 5min away and, whenever possible, we like to check in with our guests and see if anything is needed, unless we're asked otherwise.

We had a wonderful stay. Our flight arrived late in the evening, and by the time we got to the apartment it was after 10pm. Eugénia's son met us (and had offered to get us from the train station) and let us in. A lovely apartment, clean and well appointed. And Eugénia had left us wine, bread, cheese and fruit - everything needed to making us feel at home! We had a lovely stay, and would happily have stayed longer. Would love to come back!

Lovely place, 5minutes to Monte Gordo beach, which is a very family friendly place. The host was excellent and Eduardo was great in regards local information, directions and being always ready to help. The flat is cozy and equipped. Beware there is a balcony so it was a worry with my little one. Monte Gordo is ideal for families as the beach had all the facilities, the sand is clean and the sea is calm. Loads of day trips if you are more adventurous. Strongly recommended.

The apartments are very clean and cozy. The hosts are hospitable and sociable. We arrived late at night and there was no problem with the check-in. It's a bit cold, but there are a lot of blankets and heaters. Lovely view from the balcony. Excellent location: walk to the beach for 2-3 minutes. There is everything necessary, the owners are always in touch and ready to help. Recommended!

Nice place. Easy to organise check in. Monte Gordo streets are a bit tricky with so many one way streets but parking was easy once we got there. Handy and close to everything. No WiFi which was inconvenient but apparently i didnt read that before we booked so not blaming anyone, but just be aware in case it would be an issue for you. I think it would be a handy location in summer :-)
