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.

The regions administrative centre, Lagoa, is an interesting little town, and there are all the creature comforts and shops you need.

Although we had a hire car for visiting Algarve attractions you could easily go without and use the local bus for touring the immediate area.

The photos do not do it justice, such a spacious and beautifully furnished property! The views over the town and the beach are marvellous. When you are sat on the terrace and in the apartment itself, it is a little oasis above the hustle and bustle of this delicious resort. The streets are a delight to explore and lots of lovely food to be had in the many restaurants. But if you wish to dine at home, there is everything you need in the well equipped kitchen. Great weather, a beautiful beach and attentive hosts made this a holiday to remember. We hope to return again in the near future.
