Make a holiday home in Alfanzina your home away from home

Carvoeiro is a small town that straddles western and central Algarve. It has recently blossomed into a popular tourist destination after years as a simple fishing village which received tuna-laden fishermen’s boats all day. There are few better places to enjoy the Algarvian sunshine than Carvoeiro’s cliff-fringed beach. Being a relative newcomer in Portugal’s tourist circuit, the holiday homes in Alfanzina and other areas of this town are still quite new. Those who book early will be able to enjoy spacious homes from whose balcony magnificent ocean views can be enjoyed. If they want to have a private swimming pool in which to cool off, tourists can book holiday rentals with such facilities. Backpackers or those travelling as a couple can find beautifully furnished apartments to suit their needs. Some of the extras visitors can expect include Internet access and barbecues.

Things to do

-Beaches: For uninhibited hours of basking and memorable cliff-top walks, Praia da Marinha is the place to go. Visitors will have to brave going down many steps but anyone who has been there will attest that it’s worth the effort. The sun deflecting off the mighty cliffs and the golden sands bordering the turquoise expanse of the Atlantic make for postcard-pretty scenery. A walking distance from holiday homes in Aflanzina is the Praia do Carvoeiro.

-Golf: There is an exquisite golf course waiting for golfing enthusiasts who choose to book holiday accommodation in Alfanzina. This is at the Vale de Milho Golf Club, a beautifully landscaped facility dotted with palm trees and quiet ponds. Even beginners can enjoy themselves on this well maintained course. And after working up an appetite on the course golfers can partake of the culinary delights offered by the clubhouse.

-Shopping: Tourists in Alfanzina holiday rentals will be easily able to get supplies for their homes when they visit the Algarve Shopping Mall which is near Albufeira. Fashion junkies will be spoilt for choice as to where to get apparel or that rare fragrance. And after a hard day’s shopping holidaymakers can cool their heels and appease their hunger pangs as they sample the offerings of the restaurants and cafes nearby.

-Food and drinks: There is no shortage of great places to eat and those who love their pizza and pasta will be able to have their fill of Italian cuisine at the Villa Medici. This brilliant eatery is a tourist favourite thanks to its range of meals and fine selection of wines. Pimenta Preta has an enticing range of Mediterranean specialities that visitors will enjoy. Whether its duck, pork or fish, patrons will savour every forkful.

Weather in Alfanzina

The weather in this locale is pleasant and inviting especially during the summer months. Winter is mild with temperatures averaging in the teens and even in January which should be the coolest month has average temperatures of 16°C. After this brief cold spell spring begins and by April temperatures are in the twenties. Conditions continue to get warmer until August where average highs are usually 26°C. This is the peak holiday season when holidaymakers descend into holiday homes in Alfanzina and other areas of Algarve.

Travel to Alfanzina

Faro Airport is less than 30 miles from Carvoeiro and this is where most of the town’s visitors from other European countries will land. There are direct flights from most other European cities to this airport on most airlines. There being no direct bus to Carvoeiro from Faro, visitors will have to take a bus to Lagoa first and then take another bus for the three-mile trip to Carvoeiro.

                                                            Fantastic Place with really high end finish.

                                                            What a great stay we had in this Villa. We stayed from 31st March to 10th April and we were very lucky with the weather. We are a family of 4 with 2 boys aged 13 and 16 and we all absolutely loved everything about the house. Its was very well maintained and clean and felt extremely private all around. You had absolutely everything here that you needed for a fabulous chilled out holiday. You would need a car to get around, but we did venture out by foot on a few occassions. We met Paul who looks after the property and he was extremely helpful and at hand if we needed anything. This Villa really did make our holiday, we had friends staying locally, and we all pretty much spent our holiday together at the Villa. If we were to holiday in Portugal again, we would almost definitely stay here. A BIG thanks from the Marples family.

                                                            PERFECT in every way

                                                            We are an extended family from 4 different countries who had to choose a place in europe to celebrate our fathers 70th birthday ,and unusually for us we all agreed we had chosen the perfect spot . As soon as we arrived at the majestic entrance we sensed we were onto a winner .Inside is superb the decor is pure class , the main lounge is fantastic and its hard to chose whether to look out the french doors down the picturesque valley towards the sea or watch the huge 70inc TV. Normally when we all meet up we have a right old barney as who has which room NOT here every bedroom and bathroom has a different style and all are beautiful. Bedroom 1 has great outside marble bath and its terrace connects to the twin bedroom terrace ideal to keep the kids close but private lockable door between . The lower ground has a great games room with another 70inch TV , pool table and cocktail bar with music inside and out at the flick of a switch . The outside space is terrific you can all get together in the garden lounge for a barbecue or at one of the other beautiful dining areas ,or sneak off to one of the many private spots like the moroccan lounge bed or roof terrace for a quiet read .The pool us amazing when the sun is high it literally turns it into a sea of diamonds . The location suited all of us from tots to seniors ,there are some lovely restaurants and a handy minimarket within a short walk and the beach is a 10 min stroll with its cute restaurant /bar ,the boat trip to the caves from here is a must do .The town is a 5min taxi ride with lots of bars and restaurants and live music inn the square most nights.This really was a holiday of a lifetime and one none of us (especially mum and dad ) will forget . Many Many thanks to Mario the villa manager who collected us from the airport and guided us throughout our stay ( what a lovely man and so professional) ... And special thanks to Sam the owner who even got us a chef and yoga teacher WHAT A STAR ... We will certainly be back

                                                            Beautiful sea view location

                                                            4 of 5
                                                            Really beautiful sea view location. Location is quiet and private (borders mainly the inhabited land, the private garden and pool not overlooked by neighbours) though walking distance to Carvoeiro and to the beach. Spacious beautiful garden, large covered terrace with impressive sunset sea view. The owners are communicative and reactive to inquiries or problems. Water pressure/volume was limited: you have two bathrooms and the kitchen but should open water only in one of those at a time. Even flushing toilet downgrades water in shower for a couple of minutes. Not a real problem. Wi-fi available in house and terrace was sufficient for holiday regime though I would recommend to increase the speed/data volume.
