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.

We had some problems with the luggage and the local representatives were fantastic solving the problem for us. I really recommend this property and this company to everyone, was absolutely fantastic, Carvoeiro is such a nice place with nice portuguese people. Amazing holidays!

Pool lovely and the garden and sunbathing area gets the sun all day. I have to agree with the previous review that the patio door to the main bedroom did not lock and the saucepan handles were loose and quite dangerous if cooking. There are four really good restaurants within walking distance of the villa which were excellent. Great supermarkets in Lagoa which are a short car journey from Sesmarias. Local supermarket is small but has basics. This was the first time we had been in Portugal and really enjoyed the villa and its location. Would definitely go back.
