We have holidayed in this area many times but not in the last six years and this is the first time we have visited in May, rather than in school holidays. We found the weather to be sunny and hot and the parking easy.
Monte Gordo, a seaside town with a casino and popular with Portuguese and Spanish families, was our base.

Nearby Castro Marim has a medieval castle strategically sited on a hilltop overlooking the Guadiana River which marks the boundary between Portugal and Spain.
