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.

Amazing

Cracking Villa in a good location only a few minutes drive from Carvoeiro, where there are a number of great restaurants. The Villa has a luxurious feel to it and great facilities. We would highly recommend it.

Lovely apartment close to the beach

4 of 5
We spent two nice weeks at this nice apartment close to the Vale de Centianes beach, which seems to be one of the most beautiful beaches in the area and was only a five minutes walk away. The contact with the landlords Daniel and Julia was very friendly and they were always helpful with any problem that might occur. We found the premise clean and Daniel and Julia even cleaned it again after the first week of our stay, which we didn't expect and really appreciated. The apartment is well equipped and offers nice terraces behind and in front of the house so you can catch the sun in the morning as well as in the evenings. Although the neighbouring terraces are right next door we were lucky as most of the time the other apartments around were obviously not inhabited at that time. One could, however, hear quite clearly what was going on in the apartment above ours. The pool we were offered to use was a few hundred metres away and we preferred the beaches. As we were in Portugal during the World Cup we were happy to hear that there is German and international satellite TV in the apartment, although the restaurants and bars nearby also offered screens to watch the games. There is a small supermarket in the village, too, als well as another bar on the beach. The only thing which was a little bit disappointing was the Wifi system, which was quite weak and therefore available more or less only in the living room. Sometimes it didn't work at all. But that was definitely a minor problem. We would recommend this apartment to any couple who are looking for a good value place to spend their holidays at the lovely Algarve/Carvoeiro region and thank Daniel and Julia for their hospitality.
