About Milfontes

Vila Nova De Milfontes is a charming Portuguese town located in the heart of the Alentejo region coastline. Situated in the municipality of Odemira (Alentejo), at the mouth of the river Mira, in the Southwest Alentejo and Vicentine Coast Natural Park. Vila Nova de Milfontes is a fishing village with a strong connection to the sea which gives it an unparalleled natural beauty. Its vast and beautiful deserted beaches, crystal clear waters and golden dunes are the highlight of the region. In contrast to the beautiful coastal panorama, the interior landscape is markedly recognized by the typical Alentejo plains of cork oaks, among other species commonly observed in this region of the country. The town of Vila Nova de Milfontes is delightfully Portuguese, filled with cobbled streets, whitewashed houses and scenic views across the Mira River. Vila Nova De Milfontes is a bustling summer town, and despite its remote location, it has an extensive selection of restaurants, a buzzing nightlife and wide array of hotels. The summertime atmosphere has a distinctly Portuguese vibe, which means it is social and welcoming, suitable for all ages, couples and including families.

The weather in Vila Nova De Milfontes

The Alentejo coastline has hot summers and winters are mild with little precipitation but can also be unpredictable. The vicinity of the ocean and sea breezes moderates the summertime temperature, but the intense sun will make it feel incredibly hot. During the mid season, don’t forget to always pack a jacket, as it cools down at night. The best period seems to be the spring or Indian summer to come to Vila Nova De Milfontes.

Little bit of history

Despite being just a fishing town, Vila Nova de Milfontes its a town full of history increasingly visited by tourists.  The construction of São Clemente Fort, also known as Milfontes Castle, was built with the intention of protecting the small fishing village. Because of its proximity to the coast and the ocean it suffered from many pirate attacks during the 16th and 18th centuries. This town is linked to the great feat of Portuguese aviation. Because it was from this place that the first air crossing between Portugal and Macao took place, made by Brito Paes and Sarmento Beires. It was on April 7, 1924 that the pilots left Campo dos Coitos, near Milfontes, heading east. In honor of the airmen and their historical achievement, it was erected in Barbaca Square, next to the fort, a monument that recalls the heroic journey.

Forte de São Clemente (Castelo de Vila Nova De Milfontes)

It was built in the late 16th century and from its rocky pedestal you can see almost everything in the city. It served as a defense structure for Vila Nova de Milfontes, especially for maritime commerce, and as a lookout point for the entire bar. In 1939 the fort was restructured and its original layout was altered. S. Clemente Fort belongs to private individuals today.

Igreja de Nossa Senhora da Graça

Dating from the early 20th century. XVI, belonged to the Order of Santiago da Espada whose cross is engraved on the main door. The early church could possibly date from the late 19th century. XV, the time that goes back to the holy water sink that still remains inside. The object of much destruction and reconstruction over time, both because it was shaken by the earthquakes that occurred in the country in 1531, and later because it was destroyed by Moorish pirates, has been altered over the centuries. The bell tower dates from the end of the century XIX. At the moment the church retains little of its initial design being to emphasize the facade and the arch of the High Altar little hit by the modernization of the last intervention that suffered in 1959.

Ermida de São Bartolomeu

Old hermitage of popular mannerist construction that is currently integrated in the perimeter of the village, dates back to the mid-century. XVI. It is built on an old military building.

Igreja Nova

Vila Nova de Milfontes has had a New Church since August 26, 2000. Inaugurated in the Jubilee Year of Christ’s birth. The inner stained glass represents precisely the birth of Jesus Christ. On the front page stands out the Jubilee Year logo with the Latin inscription “Jubilaeum A.D. 2000”. The Church was dedicated to Our Lady of Fatima because in the Diocese of Beja, where you are located. of Milfontes, there was no Parish Church dedicated to it.

Passámos uns dias maravilhosos nesta casa que tem excelentes condições como a piscina em frente à casa, o churrasco, espaço para brincadeiras de miudos, mesas para refeições tanto dentro como fora e uma enorme simpatia e disponibilidade dos anfitriões. A melhorar apenas o facto de nao ter microondas que no nosso caso causou algum transtorno devido a termos uma criança pequena. Mas tudo o resto é muito bom e recomendamos vivamente!
