We spent 11 nights in Outra Vez, and I have to say it was just perfect. The apartment has everything you could possibly need for worry-free, self-catering holidays. It is very clean, finished to a high standard and has what a developer would call a "prime location": it's a few minutes' walk from the beach and close to, but at a reasonably safe distance from, all the diversions the small town has to offer. But even on those days when you do not feel like walking more than 50 meters, you can appreciate the proximity of the gorgeous padaria / pastelaria just behind the corner to the left (a stunning selection of bakery products and great coffee), and the unpretentious churrasceira across the street (take-away, grilled chicken piri-piri, tasty!). As a keen runner, I particularly enjoyed the proximity of the running trail that goes on top of the awe-inspiring cliffs. You can start off from Algar Seco, a magnificent place with bizarre rock formations, and continue for miles experiencing the most extraordinary sights and visiting the numerous small and picturesque beaches that lie below. You can jog, power-walk or take a leisurely stroll along this route to appreciate the real beauty of the Algarve coast, away from big hotels and traffic noise.
Perhaps I should write more about the apartment rather than about its surroundings, but as I said – it’s perfect. I’ve been to many places and rented many apartments, and this one in the top league. The owner is very professional, and very kind and helpful – all our e-mails were answered almost instantly and we got all the information and assistance we needed.
I’m a rather grumpy type so I feel awkward going into raptures so much, but I can’t help it. Outra Vez, Carvoeiro, Portugal, the Portuguese people, all of it has left only good memories in my mind. A visit is definitely recommended.
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your superb comments, really appreciated and I am so happy that you had a good time in Carvoeiro at the apartment. Hope you come back some time soon.
