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.

Things to do on a Carvoeiro, Portugal holiday

There are many small cove beaches along this coastline. From any Carvoeiro villa the beaches of Carvoeiro Praia, Albandeira, Marinha, Benagil, Carvalho, Paraiso, Ferragudo and the surfers’ beach at Pintadinho are easily accessible. These are all small sandy beaches dotted along the rugged coast of Carvoeiro, Algarve, and there are often large caves tunnelling into the cliffs which dominate the area.

From Carvoiero or Benagil beaches, fishing boats take parties to explore the Algarve coastline, often taking visitors to see the magnificent Algar Seco, a huge cave, which can also be reached by foot from Carvoeiro village. These boats, or slightly larger vessels departing from Portimao, also take trips into the ocean to enjoy some invigorating deep sea fishing. 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!

There are also magnificent golf facilities in the area. Carvoeiro has a 36 hole golf course on its outskirts, which is open to the public, and there are a range of other courses dotted around Lagoa.

If you are considering a Carvoeiro apartment or holiday villa for a family holiday, there is plenty to entertain children. The beaches provide water sport equipment, and there is a well run sports and tennis centre on the outskirts of Carvoeiro. Krazy World, 25km from Carvoeiro, has mini golf, swimming pools, a petting zoo, crocodile park, horse riding, a quad track and much more, or go to the Slide and Splash, a waterpark with claims as the best in Europe!

                                                      Lovely villa, can't be faulted.

                                                      We have recently returned from a great week staying at this villa. 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.

                                                      It was a wonderful place to have a family vacation.

                                                      Our family had a wonderful two weeks vacation in Portugal. The villa "O Pomar de Faria" is amazing with beautiful Bougainvillea and natural salty water swimming pool. The villa is fully equipped with all the utensils. The villa is also near by many nice restaurants. The BBQ griller using woods can cook a family meal within minutes. The villa is only 8 minutes walking distance to the nearby beach "Praia Vale Centeanes" which is very convenience for the youngsters. The owners, Chris and Jenny are wonderful and very friendly people. They even prepared some food and drink for us when we arrived in the villa. Everyone from age 21 to 89 year old all had a fabulous time. We appreciated the Sangria and Portugal sausages Chris and Jenny treated us before our departure. I also enjoyed very much the home grown organic mulberries which Chris and Jenny gave us. They were so sweet and delicious! Wonderful and unforgettable vacation! Guiru & Philip Nash and family

                                                      Absolutely perfect, wouldn't hesitate to book again

                                                      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.
