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

Carvoeiro, or Praia do Carvoeiro, Portugal is nested on the rocky coastline of the Algarve. The village of Carvoeiro centres around a wide bay beach, which used to serve as the fishermen’s port. Carvoeiro has not been developed for the mass tourist market, and therefore does not have large concrete hotels, but a range of apartments and villas, including some exquisite Carvoeiro luxury holiday villas.

Places to holiday in Carvoeiro, Portugal

The regions administrative centre, Lagoa, is an interesting little town, and there are all the creature comforts and shops you need. The 10 day fair or Fatacil in August is growing annually, with over 1,000 stalls and activities; it is a real incentive to take a holiday rental in Carvoeiro in August.

Silves is a beautiful town near Lagoa. It is a great place to relax and watch the world go by, but the main attraction is Silves Castle. It has survived centuries of attacks and earthquakes, and remains largely intact, and certainly impressive.

Marlin, swordfish, tuna bass, giant conger and many type of shark can be caught from these trips, and a holiday villa in Carvoeiro may be that opportunity to catch that trophy fish!

Walking distance to Centianes beach and Rocha Mar restaurant. Short drive to Carvoeiro. Both Susie and Elaine very helpful. Quiet beautiful garden setting with all home comforts. 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

                                                                                          My family and I have just returned from an eleven day stay at O Pomar Da Faria and WOW what an amazing holiday it was!!!! It's hard to know where to start but from the initial booking request Jenny responded quickly and for the months leading up to our holiday emailed me information about the area, trips, transfers(yellowfish are great) and even organised a birthday cake for two of our family members. When we arrived at the villa we were taken by the beautiful view and the size and space of the villa. The kids immediately jumped into the pool while Chris was going through an introduction and it was hard to get them out for the rest of the time. The pool really is amazing, the salt water meant that there were no stinging eyes and it was large enough for ample floats, surfboard and lots of baby toys :-) The pool was cleaned twice a week in the morning but this didn't interfere with the kids going in as it didn't take long. The layout of the villa suited our family and it was furnished with everything you could possibly need. The kitchen was very well equipped and we were able to whip up anything we needed without any fuss (home from home). When we didn't fancy going out for a meal we often ordered food from the Italian restaurant (Mona Lisa). The villa is situated up a rather steep hill, but is only 5 minutes walk to the local beach and beach bar O Stop (very slow service). There are quite a few steps down to the beach but if you have a buggy which we did you can access the beach without the stairs by going along a few more yards. The first time we walked into town it took about 25 minutes, but we were unused to the heat and the bumpy pavements (not much pavement space if you have a buggy- bring your more robust pushchair if you can!). But after having done the walk a few times we got a lot better at it and by the end of the holiday we were doing it in 15 minutes (impressive as our group of 9 ranged from 1-60 year old). Lots of lovely restaurants to choose from in town. One of our favourites Primerva served fresh lobster and tiger prawns YUMMMMMM! We made the most of our stay and when not in the pool we did some day trips including:Splash and Slide (kids and adults gave that 10/10); Zoomarine, where we had an amazing experience with dolphins; and a trip to the caves (worth seeing). To sum up a fantastic holiday and beautiful villa, have made friends with Jenny and Chris we would all highly recommend staying here!!!
