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.

Lovely outdoor areas for dining and relaxing. The pool is clean and well kept and a good size. I loved the peaceful location and you are certainly not overlooked by anyone. Good supermarkets a short drive away. Local shops walking distance, but a car is preferable. We did have a problem with finding the villa initially. A street map would have been helpful, as we only had map coordinates. Still, that added to the adventure, driving around trying to spot our villa. Only other gripe is very uncomfortable bed in second bedroom, but it certainly didn't spoil the holiday and we would not hesitate to stay again, or recommend this villa to anyone looking for peaceful secluded relaxing holiday.

Lovely beaches only a short drive away. The villa is spacious with plenty of room for the whole family to enjoy their holiday. All areas of the villa are well equipped and the air conditioning is available in all rooms. The kitchen would benefit from an update but nevertheless it was well equipped and everything is in working order. Pool and grounds are very well maintained. There are beautiful views from the upper terrace of the sea and the sunsets are beautiful. We had a lovely holiday and hope to return.
