Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Mato Serrão - House 'Flor das Amendoeiras'

It has 2 bedrooms, accommodates 4 people in Carvoeiro, zone paradise!

Story house and welcoming, with a privileged view of the pool. It has 2 bedrooms, one with double bed and air conditioning and the other with 2 single beds and fan. Full bathroom with bath with shower, bidet, towel warmer, thermo fan and hairdryer. Small pantry with vacuum, broom and various cleaning products. Living room with sitting area with sofa and coffee table, looking out through the porch. This is ideal for alfresco dining! The dining area, next to the kitchen, has a round table for 6 people, but it is always one more ... This common room is equipped with TV with 57 channels, Internet access, DVD player and CDs, there is also a stove heat, but a large window facing south over the Sun makes an inhabitant of the house!

Fully equipped kitchen with fridge, freezer, stove, oven, microwave, toaster, dishwasher and clothes. The patio with BBQ is the delight of lovers of outdoor barbecues!

The water heating is done with solar thermal equipment installed on the terrace. I have a composter where kitchen waste is recycled into good soil.

 The kitchen also has a blender, an electric coffee maker, a juicer and blender. It has all the crockery, cutlery and towels needed, as well as cleaning products.

In the rooms, the mattresses are orthopedic and pads are anti allergic. There are linens and bath towels in quantity more than sufficient for stocking the house.

In the house there is a first aid kit, blanket and fire-extinguisher as well as a list of contacts that may be useful. There are also indications of a file handling and operation of various equipment.

Parking is almost beside the house, as you can see the location map.

There are 2 adult pools and 1 pool for very young children, just have to leave the house and walk about 200 meters! The Caravela Bar serves all kinds of drinks and snacks. Meals can be enjoyed in the restaurant or pizzeria Tratoria. Alongside this runs the dive center at Quinta do Paraiso.

The beach of Paradise is a small shelter with access by stairs, about 10 minutes walk, but if you want to walk a bit more, soon after, the beach is the village of Carvoeiro. A beautiful bay surrounded by cliffs and the village itself! Near the beach is the tourist office where you can collect all the information they find relevant. Close by you can also purchase tickets to water parks and other entertainment, such as boating.

Climbing the busiest street of Carvoeiro and turning towards the sea at the top junction, one arrives at Algar Seco. Here you can delight in the sight, the sound of the sea, stroll the numerous caves, enchanted with the flora and the gulls or even see some fisherman in business!

The reception of Quinta do Paraiso is a prime location to purchase tickets, car rental, information, hiring various services, etc..

This location is ideal for both families and couples without children, it's just a matter of choice ...

A fab home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

Myself, my wife and 2 boys(3&5) stayed 10 nights. From our arrival Cristina was friendly, accommodating and very helpful. This did not change. The house is extremely well equipped from spare towels to cooking spices. The attention to detail was impressive. All mod cons are present. The house is very comfortable and clean. It really is like a home away from home. The trees around the house give great privacy especially on the patio. There's an awning there too for those exceptionally hot days. Alternatively, the a.c. in the bedrooms is great!

A lovely walk of 5 minutes (much quicker without kids!) Brings you to the 3 pools. Two ample sized pools and a large .5m kids pool. Also here are the bar, shop, two restaurants and reception. There's lots of organised activities from aqua aerobics and water polo to bingo and junior disco. It takes about 15 minutes to walk tothe village where you'll find a lovely beach and lots of restaurants.

We had a lovely, relaxing and fun time. We would definitely go back to Cristinas house.

Verdadeiramente um cantinho no Paraíso

  • 5 of 5

Em junho de 2013 voltámos pelo segundo ano consecutivo a esta casa que tão boas recordações nos tinha deixado no ano anterior. E se algo havia mudado, tinha sido para melhor! A vedação no alpendre acrescentou segurança às refeições que aí adoramos fazer (temos dois filhos ainda pequenos) e a abertura e fecho das portadas pelo exterior trouxe um conforto adicional. Tudo o resto continuava perfeito, tal como recordávamos!

Este ano a decisão está tomada sem hesitações - em junho lá estaremos novamente! Neste verdadeiro cantinho do Paraíso!

Best value for the money

  • 5 of 5

A localizacao e perfeita, enquadrada num Complexo Turistico que mantem a flora original do Algarve com todas as comodidades do turismo Moderno, esta 15minutos a pe da famosa Praia do Carvoeiro com a vibrante animacao nocturna. Em termos de higiene e conservacao 5 estrelas e a proprietaria Cristina muito simpatica e atenciosa. Recomendo vivamente, vale o dinheiro que se paga. Actividades para os jovens sao bastante animadas e restaurantes para diferentes gostos e precos que no geral sao bons. Umas ferias que ficam na memoria pelas boas razoes. J P Correia

great property in an excellent resort !

  • 4 of 5

Very accurate description of the property which was well equipped, clean and well maintained, Christina was great assistance during booking and the staff at quinto do paraiso are very friendly and helpful. the location within the complex is ideal as it is close to the pool but the mature gardens ensure plenty of privacy

The complex is relaxed with a wide mix of nationalities and our kids age 6 and 3 really loved the pool and the kids club was very good. entertianment in the complex was enjoyable. do not miss out on the italian restaurant across from the complex. great food at great price.

Air con in the second bedroom would be of benefit but i would definitely return to this property in the future.

this was our 3rd trip to the carvoeiro area and really enjoyed it. take the time to visit.

Casa excelente onde não falta nada para passar uma ótima semana de férias em família. Somos um casal com dois filhos pequenos, pelo que apreciamos uma casa bem equipada para conseguirmos manter a bagagem dentro do razoável, e de facto não podíamos querer melhor. O barbecue permite fazer uns saborosos grelhados e o alpendre, bem protegido do sol, permite umas agradáveis refeições ao ar livre. E na hora de descansar, não falta o ar condicionado num dos quartos e uns bons colchões ortopédicos... Perfeito.

Quanto à localização, também é muito boa. O aldeamento é tranquilo (era junho, não sei como será em agosto) e muito agradável. Tem um restaurante incluído (não experimentámos) e uma pizzaria do outro lado da rua (muito agradável). Tem também um bar junto às piscinas, que são três — uma para bebés e as outras duas com profundidades entre o 1,20 m e 2,30 m. Para a praia mais próxima são cerca de 15 min a pé, sempre a descer; no regresso é sempre a subir. De carro, nos mesmos 15 min chega-se a várias praias próximas.

Para finalizar, a simpatia e disponibilidade da proprietária foram inexcedíveis.

Recomendamos vivamente e voltaremos numa próxima oportunidade.

Owner's Response: Olá! Fico feliz de terem gostado de cá estar. O aldeamento é calmo em Junho e em Agosto. A diferença é que em Julho e Agosto há programas de animação junto às piscinas e mais pessoas a frequentá-las. As crianças costumam adorar! As praias valem bem os passos a descer e a subir, são maravilhosas! Tudo de bom para vocês. Cristina

Great house close to swimmingpool and animation

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in the house was great. We stayed there for 2,5 weeks, with Two little kids. The house is well equiped. In the kitchen you find everything you need, cleaning was provided and we had everything we needed. Airco worked well. Christina was very helpfull and welcomed us. The park is great as well, lovely Pools, animation and close to lovely Carvoeiro. We are thinking about going back for sure.

For lovers of Golf, the golf courses of Gramacho, less than 5 miles from home, Silves Golf and Penina Golf, a short drive are ideal to optimize your vacation! The quaint village of Carvoeiro is about 1 km from the house and there you can find everything you need, from post offices, banks / ATMs, taxis, pharmacies, medical services, various shops, restaurants with a varied gastronomic offer, bars, cafes, clubs, tour desk and one of the most beautiful beaches in the Algarve. If you like ice cream have to prove them in the Palace of the cone, where the wafer is done 'in house'! At the exit of Carvoeiro This is the Algar Seco, one of the most characteristic points of the coast of this region, with its caves, seagulls and anglers. Lagoa is the nearest town, about 5 kms, where there is the Museum of the Convent of S. Joseph, the Church, the School of Music, Fire, Health Centre and several private clinics. You can visit the cellar Lagoon and its art gallery, as well as visiting other wine producers in the region. In August takes place at FATACIL, a craft fair, technology, commerce, industry and food, but there is always some interesting event around. The path is Estômbar Slide & Splash, one of the best amusement parks in the Algarve waterfowl. Where the sources, also in Estômbar, is a spot of sightseeing and picnics next to a stream, where it is held each year the Jazz Festival. For the interior is the Serra de Monchique, a unique natural beauty of a place where you can enjoy delicious local delicacies and taste the famous Arbutus, a spirit produced by distilling the respective fruit. Honey bees of the mountain is also a specialty!

In Lagoa is a central road transport (buses and taxis) and Estômbar there is a railway station. The airport is in Faro, about 45 minutes by car and it is recommended to book the shuttle from there.

This site is not called Quinta do Paraiso by chance! It has been my privilege to live here, it will be your privilege to stay here ... creates
