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 is located in a nice, quiet area of Cavoeiro and the pictures and description don't do it justice as was even better than we expected. Three large bedrooms, all en suite, fully equipped kitchen and a nice big living room. Nice, well kept grounds surround the villa where you can dine outside in a number of areas. The terrace outside the master bedroom is a great place to watch the sunset. The pool is excellent with plenty of sun loungers and parasols. The villa is spotlessly clean and the pool was cleaned twice during our stay. We arrived way before our check in time (before noon) and after a very early morning flight were relieved to be able to check in on our arrival which was very much appreciated. Cavoeiro is a small but pleasant town, not too crowded yet plenty of choice for restaurants and bars. The Villa Nova restaurant is definitely worth a visit, slightly dearer than some in town but the food and service is well worth the extra cost, plus you can walk to it instead of having to drive into town. The boardwalk walk along the cliffs is a nice walk. All in all we really enjoyed our stay here and can highly recommend it.

                                                                                            We were a little apprehensive about booking a villa separately, but as we were taking 5 teenage children a large pool and a bit privacy was top of our list, we just hoped the villa was as described. It turned out to be perfect for us and exactly as described. It’s a great size villa, well laid out and has everything you could want. The pool is massive and very deep....around 3m. We opted for the pool heating and it was spot on, it really took the edge off the water, as a result we used it all day long. The great thing for the kids was the ability to use the pool first thing in the morning and even late at night, we’re used to pools opening and closing at certain times so this was amazing for us. Swimming at night in a heated pool with the stars over your head was brilliant! All the bedrooms are twins and a good size, two have ensuite, there’s a large bathroom and separate toilet, decent dining areas (inside and out) and a well equipped kitchen. There’s plenty of space to catch up on a tan if that’s your thing with a great roof terrace that gets sun all day long. We didn’t pay for air-conditioning so it was quite hot in the villa but fortunately there’s plenty of fans to move some of the hot air about. The villa is in a lovely quiet area but even with five teenagers we didn’t feel like we were making too much noise or being a nuisance, there’s quite a lot of space between villas which I think helps. If I had to pick a downside it would be the distance you need to walk to the local shops…….you pay the price for peace and quiet. We didn’t get a hire car as on google maps everything you need is within 15-30 min walk. We thought it would be straightforward but it’s a hilly place so when you’re going up/down hills in 30+ degree heat, we’ll, it was tiring to say the least. We ended up getting a taxi to pick us up from the villa to take us to the centre of town, even a minibus was only 8 Euro’s so not too expensive. Fortunately, everything we needed to know was in the welcome book, taxi number, shop locations, everything. We are already talking about our next trip out, which is very rare for us. We never seem to go back to places but we loved it here. If you’re considering this villa or have booked it I would recommend you pay for pool heating, get the welcome pack so you have food & beer when you arrive, pay for air-conditioning and consider getting a hire car, although it’s not essential if you’re willing to get taxi’s and pay for the transfers.

All of the rooms were lovely with large, sumptuous bathrooms. The living spaces were ideal for large numbers, allowing peace and quiet if required. We ate outside everyday making use of the BBQ and the extremely well equipped kitchen. The pool and gardens were ideal giving much needed shade when needed. Good location for the beach and for restaurants within walking distance. We would highly recommend this villa.
