Beschreibung

In an incredibly beautiful village, in an incredible beautiful, almost desert beach, a few meters away from the door, in the south of Portugal, a cosy apartment, perfect for 2, that can accommodate 4. A truly peaceful place for a romantic holiday.

How can I explain with words the beauty of this place? I can't...
It's a love story between me and Cacela Velha since childhood. I used to call it The magic village, and for me, still is. Not only because I felt in love with it a long long time ago... But by it's singularity, landscape, light, sky, location, sounds, silence, peacefulness, gastronomy...
The apartment is small but a privilege to have because of the small amount of houses in the village.
It's cosy, and it has everything for to spend a week comfortably. I've chosen not to have television and internet is wireless and payed (10€/10h - please read house rules)
There is everything to cook, there are shifts and towels available.
You will need a car or a bicycle to enjoy your holiday because this village doesn't have groceries or supermarkets; although 2 km away there is Manta Rota and Vila Nova de Cacela with supermarkets and 7 km away the beautiful small city of Tavira with everything!!! So nice to go there and spend a morning in the market! Or in Olhão, 20km away! All the landscape around is amazing and you'll fall in love as I did!

Car
Train
Bus
Bycicle avaiable for rent 6km away.
You'll be comfortable just if you have car, a motorcycle or a bike. (there are bikes to rent in Tavira and in Monte Gordo)

I will be at the apartment to welcome you and give you the keys.

Amazing surroundings and beaches to explore.
In the village there are 3 restaurants with very good typical home made food from that region.

Cacela Velha is integrated in one of the most beautiful areas of Portugal surrounded by beaches, countryside with amazing small villages and probably (still...) one of the less touristic places of Algarve.

Hystory:
Cacela Velha (meaning "Old Cacela" in Portuguese) is a village located in the civil parish of Vila Nova de Cacela, municipality of Vila Real de Santo António, Algarve, Portugal. Cacela Velha is situated on top of a hill with a view to the easternmost lagoon of the Ria Formosa.
Cacela Velha and the surrounding towns were a stopover for Greek and Phoenician navigators, and according to some authors it may have once been near the location of Conistorgis, the still-unrecovered capital of the Conii. Roman and Arab occupiers also played a significant role in the expansion of the region.
Archeological excavations conducted from May 7 to July 4, 2007, determined the village was the Medina of Qast’alla Daraj (Ibn Darradj al-Qastalli), an Islamic town dating back to the 10th century, when much of the Iberian peninsula was controlled by the Moors and Berbers who arrived from North Africa. Archeologists determined the area was an agricultural center, and part of the excavation recovered seven corn pits that were used for storing cereals and grain.
For many years, commercial fishing has been the main source of commerce for Cacela Velha. In recent years, the village has seen additional revenue from being a tourist destination. Cacela Velha’s beachfront location and lack of modern overdevelopment has been attractive to many visitors, while the village's fishing fleets have supplied the local seafood restaurants with oysters, clams, prawns and baby squid.
Cacela Velha’s major cultural event is the annual Noites da Moura Encantada (in English: Nights of the Enchanted Moor Woman), which provides evenings of music, street fairs and artisan exhibitions that pay tribute to the region’s Arab and Berber heritage.
Cacela Velha is one of ten Portuguese villages that the regional development commission (CCDR) has chosen to renovate in an attempt to encourage more Portuguese residents to relocate to the region

Perched on a low cliff facing the estuary, 10km east of Cabanas, the whitewashed village of CACELA VELHA is a reminder of how the Algarve must have looked half a century ago. Apart from a few café-restaurants, there are no tourist facilities, just a pretty church and the remains of an eighteenth-century fort – and even that houses a maritime police station and is closed to the public. Offering exhilarating views from its clifftop, Cacela is highly picturesque and, despite the Quinta da Ria/Quinta da Cima golf courses just to the west, it’s rarely overrun by visitors. The only time the place gets busy is during the Moorish Nights in July – a four-day festival of Arabic food and Moorish-inspired events, including a souk.

The beach below the village is a delight. To get to it, follow signs to “Fábrica”, just west of the village, around 500m downhill. Here a ferryman can take you over to the beach for €1 single (daily in summer but only during good weather the rest of the year). Otherwise if the tide is low, you can easily cross walking.

I will be available to provide you nice tips!
wireless internet is available under payment, 10€ per 10 hours.
This village has no shops or supermarkets. The nearest town with a supermarket is 3 km away.
Within 10 min drive yo have the beautiful town of Tavira and it's island beach and a fresh food market. There is also big supermarkets, cinemas, lots of fresh fish restaurants, shops...
Within 30m driving you are in the city of Faro (capital of Algarve), where you find the airport, cars to rent, and all a big city can offer.
Within 1,30h driving you have Sevilla in Spain!
