About Paul Symonds

Live and work in London, married to Jane and have two kids, Josh and Isabelle

Paul Symonds purchased this villa in 2003

Why Paul Symonds chose Carvoeiro area

I've always been passionate about 'getting things right' .... When it comes to holidays ... you only get one chance to get it right!

That's why I spent many years listening to people to understand what makes the perfect holiday ..... once you step inside Casa Rainha for the first time, you'll know what I mean

What makes this villa unique

The most unique benefit about the villa is the outdoor atmosphere we've managed to create.

Heated pool, decked terrace, BBQ, rattan furniture, outdoor sound system and ambient lighting.

Amazing Villa

  • 5 of 5

My daughter was getting married in Carvoeiro and we rented this villa for several of us to stay in during the week before and after the wedding. The villa is spectacular and was the perfect base. It is near the town and a supermarket so really convenient. The swimming pool and surrounding area was beautiful and the children staying with us were in the pool morning noon and night. There are 4 big bedrooms all with access to a bathroom which were also spacious and the showers were better than our showers back home. There are loads of extras like a sound system around the pool, a fab barbecue area, towels, comfy sunbeds, a well stocked kitchen, washing machine in a utility room. I could go on but I cannot think of a single thing missing. It is simply beautiful in a wonderful area and we can't wait to book again next year. Best family holiday for a long time.

Just a great place

  • 5 of 5

The owner advised us he had just completed a refurbishment programme before we arrived and told us that the photos didn't do the villa justice .... he was right. The atmosphere he created was amazing, especially the outdoor surround sound system all around the pool and BBQ area. One of the best family holidays we had in years ... we are looking to book again for my Dad's 60th birthday.

Casa Rainha, Carvoeiro.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had been to Carvoeiro a few times before and were impressed with the town and the fantastic choice of restaurants and bars with entertainment.

This was the first time we were with all the family including our 9 month old grandaughter, we had the most brilliant time!!!

The villa was absolutely spotless with 2 maids who were in everyday, they were really friendly and were great with the baby, we had no problems while we were there, but Nadia, local rep, keot in touch just to make sure everything was OK.

The villa really had everything you could possibly need, and the pooland surrounding areas were excellent, with plenty of sunbeds and large table and chairs for alfresco dining.

Having the heated pool was fantastic both day and night.!!!

We already have recommende Casa Rainha to friends and family and would not hesitate to further recommend,

Wonderful Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from one week at Casa Vila Rainha we all enjoyed everything about the villa. The description of the villa was excellent, it was in a quite spot the huge garden was a hit with the children for hide and seek.The pool was by far the simply the best we all enjoyed it so much the heating was great. The property was well maintained the cleaning staff very nice as was the gardener.Good customer service was given by Nadia she was very helpful. We would certainly recommend the villa to others and hope to return ourselves some-day. We didn't eat out much we enjoyed the bar-b-que and the pool area. We had our four grandchildren with us we felt it was very safe for them. The five year old said it was a "perfect holiday"!

What a beautiful Place for a holiday

  • 5 of 5

We (4 adults, 4 kids) had a really great time in Casa Rainha. In reaility it looks even better than on the pictures here. The pool, the garden and everything looks wonderful and with all the lights breathtaking at night.

Everything was very cleaned and the villa located really perfect to see the beautiful beaches of Marinha, Carvalho, Benagil, Gale or Albandeira.

Our kids keep asking us why we had to leave this place again!
