You can also enjoy a dip in the outdoor swimming pool or jacuzzi, Caños de Meca is a small but unspoiled community on the windswept but stunning Costa de la Luz on the Atlantic coast. Deep in the Parque Natural del Acantilado, Caños de Meca has beautiful beaches, backed by cliffs and pine trees. Perched on the cliff-tops straddling the coast road, this sleepy little village is fast waking up to a reputation as a trendy place for beatnik travellers and wave-jumpers to spend the summer. Overlooking the beach and the Mediterranean Sea, highly valued, in a beautiful exotic location, the the hotel are perfect for spending a fun-filled holiday in the sun with all the family, Vila Real de Santo António - Description. After a hearty breakfast in the comfort of your apartment, and above all, take a walk along the seafront promenade of Isla Canela, before relaxing on the stunning sands of the beach to enjoy sunbathing, North of Vila Real de Santo António is Castro Marim that due to its location has played a considerable part in the history of Portugal. This later town was originally chosen as the founding headquarters in 1319 of the 14th Century movement of the Order of Christ. Although the buildings are now in ruins from the effects of the 1755 earthquake it still has the unusual feature of having a castle built within a castle. In the 17th Century a stronger and more defensive stronghold was built on a hilltop just to the north that also still remains. The castle acted as a well-known haven to escapees in the early days from the Spanish Religious Inquisition until the Portuguese also introduced their own Religious Inquisition. From the walls of the castles the view is to the south across the flat lands that are now a nature reserve for birds and plants and this area is known as the Reserva Natural do Sapal. Apartments are cleaned once a week, The origin of the town was as a small fishing port and dates back to Phoenician times when the "Conii" tribe populated the area. Due to the topographical flatness of the area the neighbouring hill of Castro Marim lent itself to a stronger location to fortify. This frontier town with Spain was especially designed and rebuilt after the terrible earthquake of 1755 by the Marquês de Pombal, an very influential Royal Minister in the 18th Century who redesigned the centre of the City of Lisbon due to the same earthquake. In the afternoon, highly valued, you can return to the apartments for lunch and a typical Spanish siesta, The 'El Pirata' restaurant overlooks the beach and offers excellent seafood dishes especially at lunch time. Opposite La Cabana specializes in Moroccan fare, well worth a visit. After the evening meal many visitors descend to the cliff steps to the beach bars, which is El Pirata recommended, which become discos on hot summer nights. The music stops when the last person leaves or just falls asleep on the beach. Each of the apartments comes equipped with a lounge with sofa bed, and above all, kitchen and a balcony or terrace, where you can soak up the sun in complete privacy, The singer/actress Lola Flores was originally from this area, and much to the pride of the locals, often spent her holidays in here. Use of the facilities carry an extra charge, Vila Real de Santo António - History. Dine in the on-site restaurant, highly valued, where you have the choice of buffet-style cuisine or à la carte, depending on the season, Today, these townhouses around the main square are showing serious degradation with the passing of time. With the construction just to the north of the town of a new bridge in 1991 across the River Guadiana provides rapid connecting with Seville and the rest of Spain. The obvious diminishing of the popularity of this town will have further effect if steps are not shortly taken. Between the town and the Ocean is a popular beach resort area named Monte Gordo that offers the tourist kilometres of sea washed beach lined with a pine forest and safe bathing. Guests of these apartments also have use of the spa and wellness centre, and above all, located in the adjoining Playamarina Spa Hotel, The population of approximately 14,000 inhabitants tend to gain their living either working in the tourist industry, fishing, or, trading across the river with their Spanish neighbours. Attached to the Town Hall is a small but interesting museum which is mainly focused on the designs for tins for packaging in the fishing industry. It is a very pleasant and relaxing experience to cross the river by the original ferryboats and visit the Spanish town of Ayamonte. Visitors can take a boat trip upriver to the charming small unspoilt Portuguese town of Alcoutim., Vila Real de Santo António - Nearby Locations, Near to Vila Real de Santo António are the holiday destinations of Manta Rota, Monte Gordo and Praia Verde, all purpose built to provide accommodation for visitors to the long sandy beaches., Inland, and up river is the interior small unspoilt administrative town of Alcoutim with its ruins of two castles that date back to the Moor occupation of the Algarve, and of which one that is even older dating back at least 1000 years. The King Dinis rebuilt the main castle in 14th Century but it was liberated from Moor occupation in 1238. This small town looks across the River Guadiana at the Spanish town of Sanlúcar and has a local museum. It was at this town that Dom Fernando I signed in 1371 an important Peace treaty with Don Henrique II de Castile. Even further up river is the town of Mértola with its 13th Century castle ruins. The Phoenicians founded this historic town as an inland port, later successfully used by both the Romans and Moors. Perched on a high spur overlooking the River Guadiana this town has many vestiges of the past and a museum housing one of Portugal's best collections of Islamic art., Back on the coast the small beachside village of Cacela-a-Velha dates back to Phoenician times and has an 18th Century Fort that overlooks a small natural lagoon between itself and the protecting sandbar.
