Make a holiday rental home or villa in Salicos, Portugal your home away from home

Carvoeiro was once a small, traditional fishing village, but it has grown rapidly over the last few decades. The result has been a need for more accommodation, and the town has expanded outwards, with a series of exclusive developments being constructed on its fringes. Salicos is one such development, and can be used as a base for a stay in Carvoeiro. Salicos is situated 4km from the centre of Carvoeiro, and just 5km from Lagoa.

Things to do in Salicos, Portugal

Carvoeiro is a popular choice for family holidays, and as a result has plenty in the way of amenities and attractions. Bars, cafes and restaurants can be found in abundance, with the cuisine on offer varying from traditional Portuguese soups and seafood to international fare from around the world. The cliffs around the town provide some challenging walks, which are rewarded with panoramic views when you reach the top, and the beach is always a popular choice in Carvoeiro, with water sports options available for the energetic.

The position of Salicos, to the north of Carvoeiro, means it can also be used as a base for visiting Lagoa, 5km further north. Lagoa is a maze of traditional whitewashed houses, and gives the impression that it is the town that time forgot. There are a number of historical attractions around the centre, including two 18th century churches and a rebuilt monastery, and Carvoeiro is generally a far cry from some of the tourist developments elsewhere in the Algarve.

Places to visit on holiday in Salicos, Portugal

The area around Salicos is filled with places of interest, and cramming it all to a week or two can be an impossible challenge. Some of the most interesting destinations are the traditional fishing villages that have yet to succumb to tourism. A great example of such a village is Ferragudo, 9km to the east of Salicos. If you fancy a day trip you can continue east over the bridge to Portimao, where you can watch top quality beach football, surfing and motorcycle racing competitions.

July and August are the hottest months, with a daily average high temperature of 28C.

The communication from the owner, Anne, ahead of our visit was excellent, meaning we had plenty of information to make locating the villa (and finding everything in it) no trouble at all. What a lovely place it is, and very well equipped for up to 6 people in the 3 bedrooms (one double with ensuite, one twin and one with bunkbeds). Our toddler absolutely adored the huge selection of children's books and games - so great to have such entertainment for a little one when on holiday! My husband and I also enjoyed the huge selection of books available. The villa itself is fairly child friendly in that all doors to the outside can be locked shut and there is a stable style door to the back which means the top of the door can be kept open for airflow. The pool is also enclosed, with access through two lockable gates. The only thing to watch with younger toddlers is the steps leading from the terrace outside the side doors, but we blocked this off with a sun lounger turned on its side, which did the trick. We spent most days lazing in the wonderful pool or relaxing in the fabulous gardens and terraces, finishing off with a barbecue and food on the rooftop terrace where we enjoyed the wonderful views. We visited a couple of the nearby beaches, which were fabulous and only about 10 minutes away by car, but there was plenty to keep us entertained at the villa including the excellent pool and selection of inflatables / pool toys. It was so lovely to meet Ana who did the cleaning daily - she was great with our toddler and so friendly. She did an excellent job keeping the villa clean for us. We would definitely recommend the villa to others and would love to return one day! Thanks again Anne, we had a blast!

The villa is in a quiet area and is about 20 minutes walk from Carveoiro town, which is a lovely small town with loads of bars & restaurants, a picturesque beach. The pool was heated, so we spent loads of time there. There were 7 in our party (4 adults and 3 kids), and the villa was a perfect size for us. We found Doug (owner) a pleasure to deal with, and when we had a problem with the heater on the pool, Cliff (the property manager) got it sorted with the minimum of fuss. We hope to be back again soon
