Vila Real Self Catering Accommodation
Vila Real de Santo António (Algarve) Portugal, is the last town on the south coast before the Algarve meets Spain (separated by the Guadiana river). When you're looking for self catering accommodation in Vila Real, the first point to remember is not to mistake it for Vila Real in the north of Portugal. It's an easy mistake to make when you are looking for accommodation online because a lot of websites refer to both as just 'Vila Real' Portugal; so always refer to the map reference. Vila Real de Santo António doesn't have huge amounts of self catering accommodation to choose from and particularly in the centre, there is really only a choice of hotel such as the Hotel Apolo, private rooms to rent and guesthouses, for example the Coração Da Cidade and Quinta da Rosa Lindo. To have more choice in self-catering accommodation, look at Monte Gordo (which is only a very short distance away, west down the EN511 beach road or the N125). As a suggestion, if you like to cycle and you choose to stay in Monte Gordo instead, you can hire a bike and then cycle into Vila Real along the scenic beach road as often as you like! You may also want to expand your accommodation search a little further west to Altura or Manta Rota (which both have great beaches!) or to the east Algarve area in general.
