Ayamonte, a fishing port, is the nearest town to Casa Esuri, around 5 minutes from the Costa Esuri urbanisation by car.
Ayamonte has preserved the medieval quarter in the centre of the town containing many small narrow streets and squares lined with cafés, restaurants and unique shops. There are no cars in the centre of Ayamonte allowing visitors to enjoy a leisurely stroll through the town.
Prior to the completion of the bridge over the Guadiana river, Ayamonte was the access from Spain to Portugal across the ferry to Vila Real de Santo Antonio. The ferry continues to operate today.
There is a small shopping centre in the town. This houses the nearest large supermarket and is approximately 5 miles away.
Although the property shares access to communal paddling and swimming pools, it is not too far to travel to enjoy the benefits of a beach.
Less than ten miles away in Spain there are the beaches of Isla Canela and Isla del Moral (which also has a marina), and a little further away is the beach at Islantilla. All these beaches are long and wide and are not crowded at most times of the year.
You can also cross the bridge into Portugal and visit the beaches of the Eastern Algrave. Monte Gordo is just over ten miles away.
There are four lightweight aluminium folding sun-beds available that can easily be transported should you choose to visit a local beach. Beach towels are provided for guests to use during their stay.

HOW TO GET TO CASA ESURI
The nearest airport to Costa Esuri is Faro airport in southern Portugal. Most holiday and low-cost airlines serve this airport from many regional airports throughout the UK and Ireland.
To plan your flight arrangements a visit to www.skyscanner.net is recommended - this is a service that compares the fares of many airlines.
If planning a journey using Faro airport remember that Portugal is in the same time zone as the UK and Ireland. However, Spain is one hour ahead of Portugal so if you have an early return flight back it won't be quite as early as you might imagine. If you need to be at Faro airport by 8am, you don't need to leave Casa Esuri until around 8am Spanish time.
The journey from Faro Airport to the Costa Esuri resort takes approx. 45 minutes and is motorway all the way once you leave Faro.
The Portuguese government has introduced electronic toll charges on motorways. Your car hire company may use a tag in the vehicle which will accumulate the tolls during your stay. The company will bill you for the tolls and a tag rental charge of around 1.50 Euro per day. You should check the options available with your chosen car hire company.
You can avoid the tolls by using the "old" Algarve cost road N125 instead of the A22 motorway. However, this road is now busier as many local drivers use this to avoid paying tolls. The journey time will be longer too.
The total toll charge for a one-way trip from Faro to Costa Esuri is Euro 4.30.
From Costa Esuri you can use the A22 motorway without charge to get to/from the exits for Vila Real and Monte Gordo. The charge for the next section of motorway to the exit for Tavira is Euro 2.00 one way.
Full details of charges can be found using the following link: A22 toll charges. There are no toll charges on the motorway in Spain.
Although the route follows the motorway to Spain the traffic levels are considerably lighter than you experience on UK motorways, even more so following the introduction of the tolls. As the traffic is so light, the motorway is a much safer route to use.
When you cross the bridge into Spain you are within 3 miles of Casa Esuri. Please ensure your car hire agreement permits you to cross the border. Remember to change your watch when you cross the bridge as the time in Spain is one hour ahead of Portugal, the UK and Ireland.
Seville Airport is the nearest airport in Spain and the journey time from the airport is approximately 90 minutes (mainly motorway). Once you leave the Seville ring road, it's motorway almost all the way.
Airlines that fly to Seville airport include Ryanair from Dublin, and London (Gatwick and Stansted) and easyJet from London Gatwick.
Rental rates (per week, inclusive of utilities; cleaning and laundry) for a stay during the next year are:
Payment is also accepted in Euro - please ask when booking.
Holiday rentals for a period of less than a week will be considered, subject to demand. The cost will be slightly more than a pro-rata weekly rate in order to cover the fixed costs of rental.
Please check the availability page and 'phone on +44 (0) 1952 248928 to enquire about / make a booking.
On changeover dates departing guests are asked to vacate Casa Esuri no later than 10.30am and guests starting their stay to arrive no earlier than 4.00pm to enable the townhouse to be prepared.
Where departure and arrival dates do not coincide it is usually possible to arrange departure and arrival times to suit your flight arrangements.
The use of a car is considered to be essential as most shopping / leisure facilities on the development are not yet open. The nearest major supermarket is just over five miles away. There is a small mini-market a very short walk from Casa Esuri which offers everyday items. This shop has outdoor seating and tables where you can enjoy a drink overlooking the golf course and Guadiana river.
The golf clubhouse has a bar which serves bar meals and is open to the public. The club offers free internet access to its customers.
Summer in Costa Esuri is not as hot as the intense Mediterranean heat as the Atlantic wind cools the air. Summer days are long and hot - rainfall is very rare. July and August are the hottest months. The winters are mild with rainfall from time to time.
