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.

                                                        Beautiful villa

                                                        5 of 5
                                                        We have just enjoyed a one week stay here, the villa is fabulous as are the grounds and surrounding area. The description is accurate and it is well worth a visit. There was maid service and pool cleaning twice during the week and the gardeners came once. The property has a sea view from the rear which we were not expecting. The only downside are some of the internal door locks. During our stay one of the party was locked in the downstairs toilet and another one in the twin bedroom upstairs and took quite some time to release them, fortunately they were both adults. These definitely need attention. Would however recommend to anyone

                                                        Another Great Vacation at Casa do Farol

                                                        5 of 5
                                                        This was the third year in a row that we have rented Casa do Farol for a week in April. It was almost like we had only been away for a couple of weeks. The house was just the same as we had left it 12 months ago, just as comfortable, well equipped and just as homely as we remembered it. On this occasion there were eight of us, so we used all of the bedrooms and there was plenty of room for us all. We also had a two year old with us on this occasion and the house proved to be very safe for a small child, with both the pool and the property as a whole being securely fenced and gated. We really enjoy Carvoeiro at this time of year. The many excellent restaurants are all open for business, but there is no problem getting a table. The beaches aren't crowded. We checked out the spectacular beach at Praia da Marinha for the first time and I can quite see why it is considered to be in the top ten beaches in Europe. The extensive walks in either direction from the Alfanzina lighthouse along the cliff tops are very enjoyable and even a simple stroll around the Rocha Brava complex is very pleasant way to pass an hour or so. It is always a pleasure dealing with the owners, Joao and Nuno, who are always very helpful and quick to reply to any queries by email, before during and after our visit. The neighbors are also on hand in the case of any urgent problem. I would definitely recommend this villa. The fact that we keep going back each year is proof of that.

                                                        Wonderful, clean, light and airy

                                                        This was the best family holiday we have had, the villa is perfect, clean, airy and cosy our "home from home." The villa has everything you need and more. The resort is perfect, we didn't travel too far as we didn't need to, wonderful pool, site restaurant and restaurants located at the entrance of the resort. beautiful beach less than 10 mins walk. We can't wait to go back next year :)
