AMAZING HOLIDAYS!

  • 5 out 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!

VILLA CARLOTA A TRUE EXPERIENCE

  • 5 out 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).

5 ESTRELAS!

  • 5 out of 5
Decidimos passar o fim de ano na villa Carlota e foi uma das melhores formas de entrar no ano novo com o pé direito, com uma vista maravilhosa para cidade de Silves. A piscina interior é qualquer coisa de excepcional, os quartos, a sala de estar, a sala de jogos, o jardim tornaram a nossa estadia memorável num sítio acolhedor, confortável e aconchegante. Fomos recebidos da melhor forma e dispensaram-nos as melhores condições e cuidados prestados ao longo da estadia. Completamente recomendado!

ONE WORD: IMPRESSIVE

  • 5 out of 5
Every mile we did on the trip from home to Villa Carlota has absolutely worth it. We have been in the Villa in October 2013 and we just loved it. The weather was great for this period but what I really want to highlight are the big areas and the outstanding quality and comfort of the Villa and all its amenities (this is a true luxury Villa - very spacious living and bedrooms, beautifully decorated, very well equipped Villa etc). The amazing views over the river and the little and beautiful city of Silves as well as a spectacular outdoor swimming pool area also put a big smile in ours faces. Equally gorgeous and relaxing was the heated indoor swimming pool (this pool is such a great and rare facility – you can relax, swim, play with your kids and friends or do whatever you want in a warm and relaxing water and environment). The outside areas/facilities and the gardens are also an amazing surprise. The lakes and the waterfalls really give you a huge sense of relaxation and the kid's playground just made our kids' days. During our stay we also had the opportunity to walk through the Villa and its fruit trees, allowing us to know and taste some very natural and tasty fruits. This Villa really worth its price and its owners are simply lovely and attentive. We would love to come back shortly.

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.
