Charming Village House in the Algarve

  • 5 of 5

The house is situated in the centre of Moncarapacho, which is a genuine rustic Portuguese village away from the tourist areas but with all the amenities needed. A car is essential to visit other parts of the Algarve although the village has a good variety of restaurants, cafe/bars and sitting out on the square only 50yds from the front door. The house is very well appointed with three bedrooms, one on the ground floor and two big bedrooms en-suite up quite steep original stone stairs. The lounge was very smart with bi-folding doors to the patio area providing an outside-in effect as the doors formed one side of the lounge. The splash pool outside was a perfect area to cool down and chill-out. The kitchen was modern and well appointed with an induction electric cooker and full sized fridge freezer. A rustic dining room seating six was next to the kitchen. One of the best areas was the roof terrace with a gas BBQ and 360o uninterrupted views towards the sea (7k away) over the village and up towards the hills in the north. Amazing sunrises and sunsets with sun on the roof terrace all day. Excellent patio furniture on the roof for lounging and dining with a partly shaded area. The roof terrace also features an electric winch which allows you to transport food / drink in a cool box from the ground area up three floors without carrying the items up the stairs. The house featured very fast Vodafone Wi-Fi and an HD television with satellite channels. The only downside to the TV is it ONLY receives French TV Channels as it is a CANAL satellite box (No Portuguese or English at all) We didn't go to this house to watch TV, but occasionally, I do like to view world news and Formula 1 Grand Prix (Neither available) There is public parking opposite the house but on a first come basis, but we always managed a space. The houses either side and opposite are occupied by villagers, who are very friendly people and if you make the effort to speak to them, they will spend time to chat. This house was perfect for out get-away from the madding crowd holiday and we had a chilled holiday in a very smart clean house which is a credit to the owner as it is his own holiday home. We would return to Casa No Carmo in Moncarapacho as both the house and the village are perfect for our holiday.

Super location

  • 5 of 5

Nous venons de passer deux semaines à la Casa do Carmo. La location est conforme aux photos. Grande, lumineuse, décorée avec un excellent goût et très fonctionnelle. Une maison avec plein de charme dans laquelle on se sent bien. Plein de belles choses à voir en Algarve et plein de petits Restaurants à quelques mètres de la villa.

On a hâte d y revenir!!!!

Pas de chance

  • 3 of 5

Très belle location au cœur d'un sympathique village de l'Algarve. Maison très spacieuse et propre, très bien équipée, conforme aux photos. Le toit - terrasse et patio (avec sa petite piscine) sont deux endroits très agréables.

C'est un point de départ idéal pour faire de belles excursions dans la région. Il est en effet très facile de se rendre en voiture à Tavira ou Olhao par exemple.

Quelques petits points négatifs :

-un escaliers assez raide et un peu dangereux pour 2 petits enfants; il manque peut être une barrière de sécurité pour le sécuriser la nuit.

- maison ancienne avec beaucoup de charme mais du coup beaucoup de portes fenêtres vitrées qui laissent passer la lumière du petit matin.

Excellente communication avec le propriétaire qui nous a aidé à préparer notre séjour en nous demandant si nous avions des besoins spécifiques (chaise haute...); merci pour la bouteille de rosé offerte en cadeau.

Je ne mets malheureusement que 3 étoiles car nous avons été victimes d'un incident durant notre séjour. Je remercie tout de même le propriétaire pour avoir été à notre écoute et pour nous avoir aidé à trouver une solution rapide et efficace.

Séjour trés agréable

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé un très bon séjour dans cette charmante maison à la décoration soignée. Bonne situation au cœur du village. Idéal pour qui cherche à éviter les foules des stations balnéaires. Les plages sur les îles prés de Fuseta et Tavira sont très accessibles. Piscine petite mais agréable pour se rafraichir. Belle vue depuis la terrasse du toit ou l'on peut dîner le soir. Par ailleurs Moncarapacho dispose de plusieurs restaurants avec une très bonne cuisine et un rapport qualité prix excellent !

Enfin, en l'absence du propriétaire, Maria qui tient un commerce sur la place du village est là pour faciliter le séjour.

Nous recommandons.

Je recommande sans hésitation

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine entre amis fantastique.

Magnifique maison, conviviale avec un confort optimal dans toutes les chambres.

Le descriptif est conforme, la maison très bien équipée et sans oublier l'accueil très chaleureux et sympathique de Maria, prête à nous rendre service.

Même au mois de mars, le barbecue sur le roof top et la piscine chauffée ont été fortement appréciés.

On reviendra...nous avons trouvé notre coin de paradis pour passer une semaine de vacances entre amis.
