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!
