Make a holiday rental, home, or villa in Carvoeiro or Lagoa, Portugal your home away from home

The Carvoeiro / Lagoa region of the Algarve is a popular holiday destination for people of all ages. This is because the area has plenty of sun, and plenty of sea as well as a rich culture. With a rocky coastline, interrupted by serene inlets, coves and small beaches, holiday villas and luxury villas are nestled into the fantastic scenery. Self-catering holiday rentals combine freedom and privacy to ensure you can get the most out of the Carvoeiro & Lagoa region.

Thing to do in Lagoa/Carvoeiro, Portugal

Places to holiday in the Carvoeiro/Lagoa region

The nice thing with this area is that a rented holiday villa here does not stop you enjoying everything there is to see on the coast. There are very good transport links, and everything is relatively close.

Carvoeiro is a charming town nestles in a bay, with cliffs on either side. It is a fantastic base to enjoy the region. For slightly more secluded destinations, Ferragudo is a quite fishing village a few miles down the coast, on an un-spoilt beach, and Sesmarias is in a conservation area, which prohibits further development, meaning it will retain its quiet coastal village feel for many years.

Rocha Brava, whilst being a lively beach resort, has been developed with conservation very much in mind. The buildings are all single storey, and there are huge amounts of green open spaces, trees and even an artificial lake. This is an ideal resort for young families, as there baby sitting facilities and plenty of activities.

Finally, for those with a fascination in the destinations history and culture, Silves is the town you are looking for. The remains of the castle are a good starting point for discovery.

Loved it and would recommend.

Havin decided to hire a larger villa to treat my family, I found Casa Luessa on the Owners Direct site. The whole experience was very good throughout a Rose Baines was always very quick to respond to any questions etc. The arrival was efficiently handled and the villa itself was superb and homely. We came in the hottest period of the year but the air conditioning in all the bedrooms and the proximity of the lovely pool meant we were able to keep our cool. The place was kept immaculate by a lovely lady who came three times a week, the pool man and the gardener. Truus, the manager was available if needed. You could manage without a car, but we hired one locally for a week, which was useful, not only to go wider afield but also to get shopping from Intermarche, otherwise you would have to shop at small, and expensive, mini markets in town (and have to carry it back). Also in the high season, catching a taxi from the town back to the villa involves a long wait. If you go to the local water park west of Lagoa, ensure you take a beach umbrella. We thought they would be supplied, but that is not so and in high summer the place gets very hot. Overall, the villa is delightful, the arrangements efficient, and

Owners Jenny and Chris are warm and welcoming and happy to help in any way. The food and drinks they provided upon our arrival were very much appreciated after our journey. Our family group of eight was very comfortable in this spacious, clean and airy villa. The kitchen is big and extremely well equipped. We cooked on the barbecue most evenings and enjoyed the shady outdoor eating area overlooking the pool and garden. The beautiful, large saltwater pool was the biggest highlight for us. We spent a lot of time in there, day and night, and it was hard to convince the children that we should go anywhere else. The closest beach, Vale Centeanes, really is a very short and easy walk from the villa, and it is beautiful. There is a small beach restaurant set in the rocks where we enjoyed coffee and ice creams in the morning and had a meal one evening. We highly recommend the boat trip to the caves that leaves from Vale Centeanes beach (tide and weather permitting). This is also a great way to see all the other beaches that are close by. We liked that this villa is set a little bit out of Carvoeiro and is therefore peaceful and private. Aside from a few trips to the supermarket we rarely used our car as we felt perfectly content between the villa pool and the local beach. The Mona Lisa restaurant just down the road from the villa does great pizzas if you need a break from the barbecue! We all had a great time. Thank you! Natasha & family.
