5 Suites, 6 wc, 4 walk in closets, swimming pool 4x10 m 2m depth, cascade, 600m walking to the earest bech and town center, where you can fin many restaurants and bars and shops. 3 main supermarkets less tha 1km away. Very beautyfull beaches a few km away, so we advise the use of a car. The Villa is very spacious, and has a terrace with sea view where you can enjoy very nice sunsets, this area has also one shower. please look at old advertisement for comments 1046933.


this is my old advertisement in Portugal and has many comments.

This ad is new because many of our customers were British then we thought it would be more favorable for both parts if we changed the announcement from Portugal ( www.homeaway.pt ) to England. If you access to this property in homeaway.com number 1046933 you will see comments we consider magnificent on it.

Best villa in the world

5 of 5

Forget all the other villas you have ever stayed in, this is the ultimate holiday destination. We have been around the world a bit and are very hard to please but this house is amazing. Paulo build this as his private home and it shows, no costs are spared and the architecture is amazing. But not just that; once you are there you just realize how amazing and exceptional your entire stay is. Little details made all the difference. Washing powder, dishwasher liquid, insect repellent, toys for the pool or beach gear, bicycles, outdoor activities; you name it it was all there wen we arrived. Like you stepped into someones home who just left to do the shopping. Including a very nice bottle of Port wine; thank you Paulo! Everything the description says is true and more, pictures are fine but do not give you the feel of the place which is unique. For a short moment we were tempted to just hijack the house and never go back. But Paulo and his family are far too nice for that. We will certainly be back soon, this villa shows that the Algarve still is beautiful and worth visiting. A breath of fresh air in the concrete jungles that have been put up there in the last 25 years. Thank you Paulo!

A little piece of Paradise.

5 of 5

Paulo, you are a lucky man, you have a lovely wife, delicious peaches, a fruit tree laden with plums and a little piece of Paradise that is your villa.

We spent a fabulous week in your home and struggled to leave. There was everything we could have wanted and more. Jamie Oliver would have struggled to use all the kitchen utensils available. Any Aussie would have felt at home with the BBQ.

The infinity pool was fabulous anytime of the day, private and great for fun or swimming.

The meals we had in the centre of Carvoeiro were all recommended in a magazine from the house and were in the top ten on trip advisor. All superb and within easy walking distance of the villa.

If you are reading this review and hesitating about pressing the right buttons, don't, you will miss out on a beautiful villa.

Perfect Private Oasis

5 of 5

The pictures of this villa are stunning and they still don't do it justice. You really need to see it in person to realise just how much time, effort and money has been put into making this place perfect. I didn't think such a place would ever be within my budget.

We arrived slightly later than expected because our flight was delayed but we still received a very warm welcome from Paulo, Fatima and Mafalda. We were given a quick tour of the house including the roof terrace which has a beautiful sea view and dining area. Fatima then kindly brought us some drinks and snacks while Paulo explained the all the house essentials. We were also told we could phone any time day or night and for any queries/problems we had.

The house is very spacious and is kitted out with all the household items you could possibly need. We cooked breakfast and lunch in the villa every day and sat in the outdoor dining area which overlooks the pool.

Each bedroom is equipped with it's own en-suite and walk in wardrobe. The en-suite bathrooms were bigger than all of the rooms in my house!! Each room also has remote control air conditioning.

The pool is a great size for swimming lengths and is a good depth throughout. There are also plenty of comfortable sun loungers by the pool. The pool and garden area is positioned to get good sun exposure all day.

The house is also in a great location; it's far away enough from the centre to be peaceful and quiet at night, but it is close enough to walk into the centre of Carvoeiro (about 20 mins) where the main bars and restaurants are or Monte Carvoeiro (10 mins) which also has a good but smaller selection of places to eat and drink. Monte Carvoeiro also has a supermarket which has the basics but the nearest big supermarket (Intermarche) is about 3km away so you would need to take a car there (or cycle as we did).

Overall we had a fantastic holiday here, it was surprise 50th birthday present for my Mum and a don't think we could've picked a better place, she was delighted. I would definitely not hesitate to go back here for my next holiday.

Thanks again Paulo!


A hidden gem

5 of 5

Paulo and Fatima were at the villa to welcome us into their well equipped and stocked villa. Our party of 7 adults had a fantastic stay easily walking into Carvoeiro during the day and for evenings out.

If we had read the weather forecast we would never have arrived as this indicated rain every day of our stay. We found however that Carvoeiro must have a micro climate as the rain pretty much avoided us, despite clouds over Portimao.

We booked this villa because we all wanted a nice bedroom. So many others offered master accommodation and lesser quality bedrooms for other guests, and Cascade did not disappoint. All of the bedrooms have superb en suite bathrooms and the individual air con to each room is a lovely touch.

The central location of the kitchen was also very important so that the nominated cook was still very much part of the group and again this villa does not disappoint.

We hired two cars and there was plenty of room for both to be parked off road and even put into the garage (we however chose not to).

The living space and some of the bedrooms are all on one floor and this makes life very easy too.

The airport (Faro) is within easy reach as are many other facilities, making the villa a good central point to explore other coastal towns and the mountains too.

The residential area feels very safe, quiet and pleasant.

The villa is not built in a traditional Portuguese style but is fully equipped and is spacious and glamorous.

It is hard to appreciate the size of the pool from the photos as they do not do it justice.

A winner.

Thank you Paulo and Fatima.

Just perfect!

Well, nobody is telling lies - the villa is amazing. The listing details and pictures are completely accurate. The accommodation is spotlessly clean and finished to an extremely high standard, even down to the Zara bedding and towels. Very nice touch having a maid (nice lady, smiley and quietl

Absolutely amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This Villa is even better in person, the photos don’t do it justice. From the moment we arrived we were in love. Paulo and his wife greeted us warmly and gave a personalised tour of the Villa which made us feel very welcome. The Villa was lovely and clean, and a cleaner coming during the week for a once over. Location was perfect for us, an uninterrupted view over the ocean and a 5min walk down to the town and beach. Although the walk back to the villa is up hill, it is easily manageable (One of our group was over 60 and did it several times with no complaint). We had cars for the week so supermarkets were only 8min away, there are also several in the town centre for those not with transport. Carvoeiro is a beautiful town with a stunning beach and cost line, it’s also perfect for day trips to either Portimao, Lagos or Albufeira. I would highly recommend this Villa to anyone and would happy stay there again next time I’m in Portugal. Paulo was a pleasure to communicate with, very responsive to emails and any queries I had.

A Perfect Week!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed at Villa Cascade in early September (2nd-9th) . The villa is beautiful, very modern and extremely well equipped.On arrival we were shown around by Paulo and Fatima who were very welcoming and informative. All previous reviews are accurate in every detail, I cannot imagining anyone would be able to find fault with such a lovely villa . We were a small group of friends but if you were part of a large group there is plenty of space, balconies and large roof terrace for individuals to have a quiet time.

The villa is in a quiet location, yet only 15 minutes walk from the lovely town of Carvoeiro. A steep hill back but taxis are reasonably priced and plentiful if you feel less energetic.

Anyone booking this villa will not be disappointed. We have recommended it to our friends and we would certainly return.

Thank you Paulo and Fatima

Beautiful Villa in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

This is a truly outstanding villa, finished to a very high standard with lovely homely touches throughout. The villa itself is huge and the roof terrace is equally as impressive.

The property was left in an immaculately clean state when we arrived and Paulo and his wife were incredibly hospitable and helpful.

I would highly recommend this villa to anyone looking for a relaxing break in luxury accommodation.

Dream Villa

  • 5 of 5

The only word to describe the villa is luxury. Paulo and Fatima were most welcoming on our arrival and gave us a really good tour of the property. I was so pleased with the standard of the villa it is plain to see that there are so many personal touches that it makes it home from home. I had viewed the photographs before we arrived but in truth they didn't really do justice to the place. I think this property is real value for money everything you could possibly need is in there. We had two families staying and think we could easily have accommodated another without compromising space or privacy. I would recommend this to anyone. The walk in to the town is around 15mins down hill and quite a nice walk, a cab back if you don't fancy the uphill walk is only around 5 euro. Paulo, thank you for your assistance and I am envious to think that one day you will be retiring to this fantastic place.

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

June/July 2016. We loved our stay at Villa Cascade, the beautiful, modern home of Paulo and Fatima who were there to welcome us and show us round the spacious en-suite rooms and roof terrace with lovely views. Many lazy days were spent lounging in the garden where we enjoyed the generously sized pool and lunch was often eaten on the poolside deck area, prepared in the light and airy, well appointed kitchen, the hub of the home. The villa sits in a peaceful residential location with Carvoeiro centre only around a 15 min walk away, where you'll find the beach, lots of restaurants, bars and shops. We have no hesitation in recommending this luxury villa. Thanks Paulo and Fatima.

Fabulous House Fantastic facilities all you need

  • 5 of 5

The personal welcome from Paulo with drinks and nibbles and a tour of the house and how things worked was perfect. The photos dont capture fully the spaciousness of this house. The house was spotless. The location states you need a car but we found it not necessary and walked everywhere. The pool is much bigger than it looks on the pictures too. All of our families loved this house
