Don't usually leave reviews but felt this place needed one, so...... The villa is well equipped, clean, spacious and brilliant for a large family or more. The pool area is great for entertaining with the bbq and seating area. The owners run the villa personally and Isabella was a delight to deal with, nothing was a problem. There is a holiday village next door but don't be put off as we barely heard them and we had more atmosphere going on at our place. The villa grounds are private from the village and the access roads are nowhere near each other. The villa has good views as is slightly raised up a hill, sunrise and sunset was nice. As for location it's about a 20 minute walk to main Carvoeiro town but a 5 minute drive. A choice of supermarkets less than 5 mins by car including Intermarchè which we found our best choice like an Asda or Tesco but further up the road was a pricier supermarket and also an Aldi. All in all a good location but i'd recommend hiring a car, although taxis were not expensive. We would definitely stay at his villa again if we do go back to the area!!
