Overview

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday villa in Silves

One Word "Amazing"

  • 5 of 5

We have been holidaying in the Algarve since 1980s, in a wide assortment, and standard of villas. Villa Carlota is as good as it gets!

The pictures of this villa are stunning and they still don't do it justice. You really need to see it in person to realise just how much time, effort and money has been put into making this place perfect. The villa is very spacious and is fitted out with all the household items you could possibly need and more.

The villa was immaculate and very tastefully furnished. We have rented villas all over Europe and this certainly rated as one of the best. The villa has electric gates and set in gardens which are well kept and a joy to walk around, the indoor and outdoor pools were a welcome luxury. The owners José & Amélia were there on arrival to answer any questions and show us around nothing was to much trouble and they were very professional. The position was quiet but within a 5 min drive of town where there were an abundance of good restaurants. We loved our stay at Villa Carlota , a real home from home and would certainly love to stay here for a much longer period of time.

I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending this villa to anyone visiting the area. If your searching through endless web sites for the perfect spot, you've just found it. Don't miss out

Thank you again

Ryan

Amazing holidays!

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 families travelling together to Algarve for the first time. Our group was consisted of 8 (4 adults and 4 children between the age 9 to 3 years).

The Villa offered lots of space and nice features to our families. The kids loved the pools and the game room. Especially the internal heated pool was a success for the period we went. The kids also loved walking through the garden discovering new paths and playing in the playground. We were very pleased we didn't need to go out of the house for our kids to have a good time.

We loved the veranda around the swimming pool with the outside kitchen. This was the place where we spent most of our time. We did our cooking here (also bbq) and had our meals. The men also loved the pool table which was used daily.

The rooms were great and comfy with good (quite) air conditioning everywhere in the house. It was also wonderful to close the day sitting in the veranda watching the sunset with a glass of cava and some nachos with fresh guacamole I've made from the avocados we collected in orchard! Just delicious!

But the best part of all was the great service and hospitality from José and Amélia. You can see that they spent lots of efforts to make this a great place. For sure they’ve succeeded! And I’m happy they are allowing others to enjoy it!

Amélia had also baked a cake for us for our arrival and give us a bottle of Cava. José was also very helpful and provided us excellent suggestions on restaurants in the area, which we took it and enjoyed great meals!

The booking process his reply was always on the same day and the whole process went very smoothly. He also allowed us to see the other property he is renting and invited the kids to use the swimming pool there as well. This another great place to consider when visiting the Algarve. During this visit they also spoiled our kids with ice creams and chips and let us taste a homemade wine which was a great day to end the afternoon. What a great hospitality! They treated us as friends, our kids, especially my niece loved Amélia and wanted to hug and kiss her as she has known her for years! After years of renting houses/villas in different countries I can tell you this was an exceptional experience!

In short, Villa Carlota is a perfect place to relax and enjoy some quality time with your love ones. Our kids still talk about it and my son wants to move to Portugal. For sure we are considering to go back and will definitely contact José and Amélia again!

Top place and excellent holidays

  • 5 of 5

It was great to see that the place perfectly matches the description and photos. It perfectly clean and very well equipped. One can see that it was created and cared with passion and attention to the detail. The owner was very professional, always worried to make the experience memorable. It's in of the best places I ever tried. I definitely recommend the place to anyone that is searching for places above the average.

2 semaine de rêve dans une villa au delà de nos espérances. Une vue splendide le jaccuzzi à 38° et la piscine à 28°

Oranges et citrons pressées tous les matins grâce à un jardin magnifique.

Et que dire des gestionnaires de la villa qui ont été d une gentillesse et simplicité incroyable.

Bref un séjour sans aucune fausse note.

Villa Carlota a true experience

  • 5 of 5

From the day of our arrival until our departure all members of our family felt at home at Villa Carlota. The welcome at the first day by the owner, his wife and eldest son (with among others a home-made cake) was heartwarming.. The guided tour in the magnificent villaand around the splendid layed out garden with its surprising possibilities (fresh fruits like oranges, lemon, figs, prunes and grapes) surpasses all our expectations. In connection with the 2014 World Cup Football the owner had arranged for a beamer and a large projection screen. In the Casablanca room we watched all the matches particularly the matches of our Dutch team. We almost daily used the indoor and outdoor swimming pool, the gym, the mountain bikes (with bicycle padlocks !)and of course the BBQ area. It was perfect. The two weeks we have spent in and around Villa Carlota will be remembered as a wonderful experience. Thank you José and Amélia (specifically for the surprises on midsummerday).

Located 10km from the Algarve coast, the Villa Carlotta is located in the first row of designated Cerro de San Miguel who, for several years, is presented as one of the most prestigious areas of the country outside the small, historic town of Silves, Algarve .

The Cerro de San Miguel is one of the most beautiful hills surrounding the city of Silves, getting up in front of the same, from the east bank of the River Arade, being sought, populated and appreciated for decades by the Scandinavian people , seeking to distance themselves from their harsh climates, here found "refuge" ideal.

Although situated near the town of Silves, this hill is inserted in full Algarve countryside and features a remarkably unnoticed extremely calm, relaxed and homely environment where the excitement of the little sleepy town is not felt, from this, moreover, in a way .

On the other hand, the urban planning of the first row of the Cerro de San Miguel to Villa Carlotta provides a high level of privacy in relation to the few villas that vizinham there.

All these features contribute and define the framework that enjoys magnificent Villa Carlotta, unique in the entire Algarve region, beyond doubt, allowing enjoy a breathtaking view of the entire city of Silves and the Arade River, able to steal the breath for a few seconds.

If you think that is all, if desengane-because on the horizon you can still see a clear way the Serra de Monchique, considered one of the finest Algarve charms that nature has to offer.

The Villa Carlotta also enjoyed a high level of road access, standing just 1 minute access to A22 (Via do Infante) and 7 minutes of EN 125.

Arrive and park your car in the fabulous beaches of the western Algarve will not take you more than 15 to 20 minutes. If you prefer, you can also choose to take your family and friends to one of the 3 famous water parks near the villa, a task that will peacefully in about 10-25 minutes.

On the other hand, if you are a lover of golf,'ll find no better place to implement his sporting passion in one of 6 golf courses that are within 2 9km from the villa.

"Last but not least," the trendy nightlife of the Algarve are also represented about 20 to 35 minutes, or look for Praia da Rocha and Alvor and Albufeira and Vilamoura.

In short, Villa Carlota offers a rare and unique location, being able to combine and provide a wonderful way of an extraordinary and delicate balance between country and city, beaches and golf courses.
