Mobile leisure homes and park homes in the Algarve – Manta Rota

This is one of our most impressive mobile home parks, a fantastic relaxing and beautiful park located in the Eastern Algarve, just 45 minutes from Faro airport and 1 hour from the Spanish city of Seville. Privately owned and set in 9 hectares of rolling countryside and still only 10 minutes from some of the best beaches in Portugal and is a must-see for all those who love peace and tranquillity. With beautiful panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean, 5 golf courses nearby, a large swimming pool, recently refurbished bar and restaurant.

Our park is open all year round and has excellent facilities including a large swimming pool with lounging areas, an internet café, public telephone, mini-market, laundrette and a lovely selection of British and Portuguese food in the bar/restaurant. With a choice of mobile homes, park homes and timber lodges designed sympathetically to retain the natural charm and beauty of the area, each home can enjoy a large plot with lovely views, within the secure, gated community.

The area is often referred to as the “California of Europe” due to the unspoilt coastlines with traditional villages and famous sandy beaches. The laid-back lifestyle, clear blue skies, taking a dip in the pool and relaxing on your deck are the reasons many people enjoy the south of Portugal, the natural beauty of the area must not be underestimated. With the charming villages of Tavira and Cabanas just a short drive away, excellent road connections into Andalucia in Spain and being on the fringes of the Ria Formosa nature reserve, there are plenty of beautiful, charming and historical landmarks to visit nearby.

The reception is open 7 days a week with multi-lingual staff providing security and peace of mind to residents in addition to the secure entry system. All on-site staff are friendly and local to the area, they can provide you with all the help you need to move and get settled in the area. As the Algarve Park is open all year round, the potential of sub-letting your home is fantastic with many owners taking advantage of rental opportunities whilst they are working, holidaying or living elsewhere during the year. With a climate which allows all year round holidays, it offers an excellent investment opportunity. This is a stunning development with beautiful panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean, a must-see for peace and tranquillity lovers.
