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

The best way to discover the diverse coastline and to get your bearings is to hire a boat and a captain, and cruise down the coast, stopping off at secluded beaches and fishing villages. These can be taken from Carvoeiro or Benagil beach. Also out on the waves, the deep sea fishing is sensational, with the opportunity of catching marlin, swordfish, billfish, tuna, giant conga and blue, mako and hammer-head sharks.

If you are looking for a golfing holiday, there are some demanding courses in the area, the Vale de Milho, Vale de Pinta and Quinta do Gramacho are all 18 hole courses open to the public. There is also plenty to entertain any children on holiday in the Lagoa region, with Krazy World, mini golf, swimming pools, petting farms, quad bikes, horse riding, tennis and horse riding.

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.

Weather in Lagoa/Carvoeiro

Temperatures in the winter are still around 16°C, and the summers are hot and dry, averaging around 30°C. However, visitors are reminded that the nights can still get pretty cold, so a jumper is suggested!

The villa has everything that you need and is close to the pool and kids club without any noise. The walk into Carvoerio is around 10/15 minutes passing a lovely restaurant and cocktail square on the way!!!! Quinta Do Paraiso is a great place to stay for a fun family holiday, the amimation team are very friendly and great fun. Communication with Andy the owner was very good, in fact we have just booked to stay again this year.

                                                                                                      Loved this apartment. It is spacious, very well equiped, spotlessly clean and in a lovely location.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      Firstly let me say that Muriel the owner was in contact via email before our trip, ensuring we were provided with excellent information about the apartment, directions, key collection etc. She also arranged for a local contact to meet us on arrival, he showed us round the apartment and the facilities at the hotel, thank you Ian, much appreciated. This is an excellent apartment in a lovely location, with access to the pools, indoor/outdoor, gym, sauna etc in the nearby 4* Pestana Viking hotel. The beach is a very short walk away and although you can't see the water, it was lovely to hear the sound of the waves from the apartment. The apartment itself is very spacious and had everything we needed for our stay. Most importantly for me is that it was spotlessly clean. The kitchen is very well appointed, with fridge, freezer, cooker, dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, toaster, kettle and plenty of crockery/cutlery etc. The sitting room and bedroom are spacious and airy, both having direct access out to the private patio area and garden with lovely table, chairs and loungers. The bedroom has plenty of storage and a very comfortable bed. An added avantage is a safe, great for travel documents, money etc. Two bathrooms, one with bath/shower, the other with shower cubicle, were again spotlessly clean. The sitting room was very comfortable with sofas, dining table and great tv showing most uk channels and Sky sports. As for getting about, we didn't have a car but there is parking directly outside the apartment strictly for resident use. Alternatively there is an excellent bus service with a stop practically on the doorstep. There are restaurants and shops within a ten minute walk and these were more than adequate for our needs. Overall, I would highly recommend this apartment for families and couples who either want to stay within the area and make use of the superb facilities or, for those who wish to use the apartment as a base from which to explore what the rest of the Algarve has to offer. Finally, a big thank you to Muriel for great communication before and during our holiday, we really enjoyed our stay and hope to return soon.

Entertainment system very comprehensive, which came in useful during the couple of rainy, stormy evenings we had. The house is very well equipped with everything you could need, including extremely modern and good quality kitchen. The roof terrace definitely delivers the "wow" factor with incredible, extensive views of the town, to the sea. Being there in the winter, we did notice quite a bit of condensation in the bedroom overnight, but this is no doubt just down to the weather we experienced at this time of year. We visited various beaches, our favourite being Centianes beach just on the outskirts of the town. We also discovered a lovely Portuguese family restaurant just off the "in-road" - A Fonte. Very good, fresh fish served there as well as other Portuguese dishes and very good value. For steaks, Casa do Bife is worth a visit.
