It was perfect for us. 113 steps from the "IN Road" and 5 minutes to the center of town. 2 very nice bedrooms downstairs and 2 full bathrooms. You can hear the ocean on a nice night. We fell in love with Carvoeiro. Not too big and not too small. It was very comfortable to walk around. Friendly people and great food options. The house could use a name, I vote for "House on the Hill". The only issue and it is not really an issue, is that there is too much outdoor furniture. I am not sure why you need seating for 24 people (on two patios) when the house only sleeps four. It is very nice furniture, just too many cushions to take in and out every day. In Summary. We would recommend this house for anyone and especially ones that like a little walk to work up an appetite.

The pictures do not do it justice, especially the view from the roof terrace, where we made use of the bbq. The tv channels were an added bonus, with sky sports, sky tv, and numerous movies. The bed was the comfiest rental I have ever stayed in. P.S. All the other reviews I read had me concerned about a huge hill up to the property. I really don't know how old/lazy these people are but it was fine and we were pushing a little one in a push chair. Great stay in Carvoeiro!!!!

Stunning setting in a pieceful area and yet we did walk it into town one or twice. The villa was well equipped with everything we needed, home from home. Lovely decor. Clean and modern yet still has all the traditional touches. The pool is fabulous too!
