The apartment is clean, good sized bedrooms (2) and enough bathrooms (3) with powerful shower (nice). The apartment has everything you might wish for. Nice location looking out over hole 3 of the golf course. Everything was spotless. We will definitely come again.

Also around Is a very helpful neighbour, who speaks English and is extremely accommodating and welcoming. The villa is a perfect size for 2-4 people, but obviously wouldn't be suitable for larger numbers, but that's no problem. The location is quiet and though lacking sun early in the day, that isn't an issue with the long days of sunshine ahead, with the front terraces bathed in sunshine from late morning. Al fresco dining is the norm, with plenty of privacy from the enclosed upper terrace. A beautiful landscaped garden and rich in plant life leads down to the complex pools and reception but, other than the odd swim and trips to the local mini market, there is really no need to venture too far away from the villa. The local mini market is handy, if a little pricey for some things, but not unduly so and makes up for it In convenience. We ate only once at the local Italian restaurant which was very nice, I had the piri-piri chicken which, as you would expect, was excellent. The remainder of the time we ate in the villa, or in the centre of Carvoeiro itself. Whilst a very quaint little town with meandering streets and local shops the sea front at Carvoeiro is a relatively unspoilt area, with a feel of Cornwall with it's steep cliffs home to villas and restaurants on either side. The main area by the sea is home to several cafe-bars and whilst they all provide food it is pretty standard fayre, catering for the generic mass tourist market, everyone wants a cheese toastie on holiday it seems. There are a couple of good places to eat however with Onze getting my vote, being reasonably priced and offering an excellent choice of good food. Squid and Octopus being my particular favourites, with many more meat and seafood dishes on offer. The town itself has numerous tourist shopping establishments, but are probably not to everyone's tastes, but there are also several boutique style shops, which cater very well for ladies fashion. However, I don't think shopping is particularly high on anyone's list when visiting this area, the natural beauty and the sun is the main draw, and for that it gets full marks. We would definitely return, having received both great service from the villa owner and his local "agent" and finding the location perfect for relaxation and fun in equal measure
