About the property

Fully Air Conditioned Private Villa With Fabulous Views,

Casa Cara Mia is a beautiful 3 bed, (all en-suite) fully air conditioned villa in a quiet area of Carvoeiro but only 10 mins walk to the centre of the village. The pool is in an open area in front of the villa itself and the views on offer are fabulous. The villa has fencing around the pool area for additional child security, complete with a lockable gate. This can be removed on request as it is not fixed. Between the pool and villa area, there is a table and chairs for Al Fresco dining in the evening and with underwater pool lighting plus wall lights illuminating the area, it makes for a fabulous ambiance when BBQ'ing in the evening. The sun sets almost directly in front of the villa and the views at dusk are breathtaking.

At the rear, there is a spacious garden where children can play safely as it is fully enclosed. There is also a rear terrace with table and chairs for relaxation. This villa has every ingredient for a fun packed safe family holiday. The villa is fully licensed with the Town Hall under the Alojamento Local Licence (AL). AL 252/2014 Process no 45/2014/3947.

Fantastic, spacous villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. We were welcomed upon arrival by Peter, who was super helpful and gave us tips for enjoying our stay.

The villa was gorgeous and in a great spot just out of the town, but near enough to stroll in and out. Beautiful, good sized pool and lots of places to sit and enjoy the sun and views.

Would definitely recommend it.

Perfection

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful villa is very quiet and private, and set high up guaranteeing amazing sunsets from the roof terrace. It is very spacious, clean and well equipped, and benefits from the sun on the pool area all day. The pool itself is a good size and very clean, and I would recommend the pool heating for early/late season stays. The location is ideal as it's only a ten minute walk down to the beach/town centre, although this is uphill on the return. Carvoeiro is a very pretty town with a small but perfectly formed beach, and numerous high quality restaurants. There is also a long stretch of boardwalks along the cliff top for stunning seaviews. Peter is very friendly and welcoming, and on hand for any issues that may arise. We had a wonderful 10 days and wouldn't hesitate to go back.

Beyond all expectations

  • 5 of 5

My family’s experience of the Casa Cara Mia was well beyond our expectations. This was our first time booking a villa and the whole experience was great which Peter and Anne helped every way possible to ensure we had everything.

The Villa was excellent, very clean and tidy and the pool area was ideal. Both my wife and mother in law could not praise the villa enough and we instantly book the villa for next year.

Highly impressive from the beginning. Electric gates and a long driveway, with well-kept gardens leading to a great parking area. Our son was particularly impressed with the accommodation, the pool was fantastic and an added bonus was the table tennis in the garage. It would take too long to list everything but needless to say everything you would need for a family holiday was provided. The fridge was even stocked with an impressive range of basic food stuffs so no need to do an instant shop before you arrive....have a cup of tea and a swim before you venture off.

The very private pool area benefits from the sun all day and has plenty of sun-loungers/chairs and tables. The roof terrace looks the ideal place to enjoy drink during the evening even though we never used it.

Peter the owner was hugely helpful and approachable prior to us arriving and during our stay should we have required any assistance.

The local shops and Restaurants is a 10-15 minute walk away which stocks just about everything you require including a good selection of Portuguese wines. The main street has all you'd expect for a holiday destination. We noticed a lot of upkeep work being carried out, painting etc and it gives a good general impression.

The weather we had was great at this time of year. 25-30 degres and cloudless - I think we were lucky with this.

This was my 1st visit to Carvoeiro and we thoroughly enjoyed this part of Portugal

If you are thinking of taking a holiday in Carvoeiro then Cara Mia is the perfect place to stay.

Thank you so much Peter and Anne for a brilliant holiday. See you next year.

Fantastic villa in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

From the minute the electric gates opened we were smitten with Cara Mia. This is an stunning well looked after villa that surpassed all our expectations. We're a family of five (2 grand parents, 2 parents and an 11 year old granddaughter) with each couple getting a bedroom with an en-suite, plus the grand daughter - how grown up she felt with that. The inside is impressive with everything you need - lovely modern open plan kitchen, comfortable seating and wide screen tv, however the outside was just what we ordered. Plenty of room, good quality seating, beautifully planted back garden, a most relaxing sun terrace you can chase the sun all day with seating opportunities everywhere. However the piece de resistance is the wonderful heated pool. We were blessed with some lovely weather but the heated element to the pool just made it so much more comfortable - our grand daughter would have slept there given the chance - she had a few moonlight dips in the pool with the under water lighting adding to the whole ambience. The villa is well situated to walk into Carvoeiro but also the taxi's were relatively inexpensive if you didn't fancy the walk back after a night out in town. Peter & Anne are wonderful hosts and even when we had to call Peter out just before midnight as a power cut had meant we couldn't get in the gates he still had a smile on his face even though we knew we'd got him out of bed. It really is a special place in a lovely part of the Algarve and you'd have to go a long way to beat such a lovely property - we will definitely return.

Superb!

  • 5 of 5

Highly impressive from the beginning. Electric gates and a long driveway, with well kept gardens leading to a great parking area. Our teenagers were particularly impressed with the accommodation, the pool was fantastic and an added bonus was the table tennis in the garage. It would take too long to list everything but needless to say everything you would need for a family holiday was provided. The fridge was even stocked with an impressive range of basic food stuffs so no need to do an instant shop before you arrive....have a cup of tea and a swim before you venture off.

Peter the owner was hugely helpful and approachable.

The town is around 15 minutes walk away and has all you'd expect for a holiday destination. We noticed a lot of upkeep work being carried out, painting etc and it gives a good general impression. The walk back has a steep bit to be aware of if you're not too good on your legs.

The weather we had was great at this time of year. 21-25 degres and cloudless - I think we were lucky with this.

Altogether....fantastic. We'd be more than happy to stay again and will be highly recommending it to others.

( One word of advice if you will be hiring a car - buy ALL the cover before you travel. We did for an extra £17 and were still met at Faro airport by a surly "advisor" wanting another £175 for the same cover.)
