About the property

2 Spacious Bedrooms And Roof Terrace With Amazing Views

This charming townhouse is situated in the design award-winning Colina Branca urbanisation, a total of 26 houses and 6 apartments close to the centre of Carvoeiro.

The entrance from the covered car port leads into the spacious living room, which has a fitted fireplace stove, sofa, dining table and chairs, satellite TV and DVD player. Sliding patio doors lead out to a large south facing terrace/balcony with barbecue, dining table and chairs, and sun loungers.

The kitchen has fridge/freezer, washing machine, gas hobs/electric oven, microwave, toaster, coffee maker etc, plus all cutlery and crockery needs.

A marble spiral staircase leads down to two spacious double bedrooms – each with it’s own small balcony – and both with very large fitted wardrobes. One bedroom has twin beds, an en-suite shower room and W.C. The other has a double bed.

In addition, this year a very large storage area has been converted into a third bedroom which is equal to, or bigger than a standard double bedroom. It accommodates a single bed and a new, adult sized folding bed, bedside table, dressing table etc., so the house can now easily accommodate six adults.

The large main bathroom has bath and shower, double wash-hand basins and bidet

Back up to the living room – from here a marble spiral staircase leads up to a roof terraced area with turret from which there are stunning 360 degree views of Carvoeiro and the sea. This is a lovely peaceful place to sit and relax with a beer or wine!

There is a large well maintained communal pool down two levels.

Our townhouse is some 300 metres from Carvoeiro centre and town beach. It has the advantage of being very quiet yet centrally located. It is downhill to the centre, and an uphill walk back. When we feel particularly lazy or overfed, taxis from the town beach take us home for a few Euros.

About Diane

We are a Scottish family from Edinburgh who love Carvoeiro and the Algarve. We need heat and sun (well we are Scottish after all) and Carvoeiro really suits us

Diane purchased this house in 2006

Why Diane chose Mato Serrão

We stayed in Caravela a few times on vacation and loved its charm and clever design. In fact we liked it so much that we bought it when the opportunity arose! It's in a quiet location, yet close to the ocean and all the restaurants and facilities

What makes this house unique

The clincher for us was the turreted top terrace with the 360 degree views of land and sea. For a feeling of well-being while sitting there it's hard to beat. The large terrace off the living room was another 'hook' and the coolness of the bedrooms - both downstairs - is a real plus.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were exhausted when we arrived, setting off from home just after 2a.m. and arriving around 1pm (directions superb by the way), and really appreciated the welcoming bottle on the table! While we were there the weather wasn't great, but the townhouse was in an ideal position to explore the Algarve and further inland. The house itself was very clean and more than spacious enough for the two of us. The balconies made for some peaceful relaxation, the kitchen was fully equipped, and everything we needed was right there. We enjoyed it so much that we hope to come back again next year.

Beautiful Carvoeiro Townhouse With Sea Views

Charming townhouse with lovely views in a well planned & situated complex

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a perfect location in the village. It is kept very clean by Anna Rosa daily. We used the terrace off the living area several times daily but found the upper terrace mostly useful for hanging laundry despite the views of the water from there- taller & more substantial furniture there would

enhance the experience. The manager was helpful with our queries. Directions were clear except we found the internet can be paid at Apolonia rather than the InterMarche. Our favourite exercise spot was the cliff side boardwalk after parking near the Algar Seco hotel. Gardens were coming into bloom- beautiful!

Nice town home

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as advertised. Easy walk to town but not so easy on the way back. Would stay here again and recommend it

A spotless townhouse in a great location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have just returned from our stay at Colina Branca. Although it's December, we were pleasantly surprised by the weather. The 3 storey townhouse was in a really great location (though be prepared to walk a serious amount of steps down to the town!). The main balcony was a great sun trap, and super views were to be had from the roof terrace. It felt like a home from home, and the kitchen was equipped with everthying one might want. The T.V. had plenty of English chanels. WiFi was via a payment at the local post office; not ideal, but it did work. The house was spotlessly clean and we really appreciated the generous Welcome Parcel that was waiting for us. We had a lovely break.

Lovely home to stay, loved it.

  • 5 of 5

We spent over three weeks in the wonderful - Casa da Caravela - and we very much enjoyed it, we loved it.

The nice house itself and its location, how close it is to the village center, with the charming Carvoeiro all together could not come in a better bundle.

From finding everything you need in the house to make and enjoy a fabulous meal at home, all the way to everything you could want you can get to within five minutes’ walk to the village center, even with no car, created a very nice, easy and comfortable feeling.

This cheerful happy townhouse is just right, with everything you want to have for a lovely holiday; like enjoying the pool, or the sundeck-terrace with its great views, for some quiet peaceful relaxing time.

We are sure contemplating going back, and maybe sooner than later.

We absolutely recommend it to everyone who loves beauty, and quiet peaceful surroundings.

Ja S.

Beautiful Accomodation

  • 5 of 5

Just back from spending another fantastic week in this beautiful property for the fourth year running.

It has everything you could possibly need on your holiday, home from home comforts, spotlessly clean beautifully furnished. The owner has thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable with a very generous welcome pack on arrival, folder with helpful information to enjoy your stay . It is within 10 minutes walking distance to the centre of Carvoeiro where there are lots of lovely restaurants to enjoy and plenty beautiful beaches to visit.

Will definitely be making a return visit in 2018!!

Great stay, close to the town.

  • 5 of 5

Have stayed here before last year and had such a comfortable stay we just had to come back. Lovely property with great views of the town below. Only a hand full of people using the pool at any one time so plenty of sun beds. Very hilly so bring comfortable shoes!! Heels not recommended as the paths here are all cobbled.

Our townhouse is in a privileged position, quiet yet close to the town centre and beach. Carvoeiro is a safe and laid back village, full of quality restaurants and bars; Although much expanded in recent years with low-rise properties it retains its charm.
