This delightful holiday 'home from home' is on a gradual hillside overlooking the picturesque Vale do Milho golf course, and the sea beyond. The property is set within Vila Golfemar which is a small private development, where the stylish linked villas are set in immaculate grounds with its own attractive pool complex. The villa is stylishly furnished and equipped to a very high standard, with 32' TV (Freesat), and a central sound system enabling speakers to optionally play music in every room (bathrooms too!) We have a variety of CDs available to suit different tastes and ages. The entrance floor has an excellently fitted kitchen with all modern appliances including washing machine, dishwasher, and microwave and an additional door to a useful outside utility area. There is also a luxury cloakroom, a pretty, bright and spacious open plan dining/living room with air conditioning, and two sets of patio doors opening on to a furnished corner terrace with BBQ & wonderful views of the sea and golf course. A sweeping tiled circular staircase leads down to the lower level, with 2 double bedrooms and an additional, conversion twin bedroom. The main bedroom has air conditioning, sliding doors to the private garden and ensuite bath with shower. The second bedroom also has air conditioning and sliding doors to the garden and shares a shower room with the converted bedroom (accessed through the shower room) which has a TV/DVD player (but no sky channels).

Pool / Spa
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
House verry well located, calm and clean area, nearby all the best beaches. Well equiped, good beds and spacious interior. Nice pool.
Relaxing days in Carvoeiro
We are two couples (50+) who decided at short notice to go to Algarve 3 days later. We chose Sue's and Mike's place.
The beatiful pictures promise what you can expect. A clean and lovley equipped house with everything you need for a relaxing holiday.
The house is located within a condominium around the golf-course. Quiet and away from traffic- or other kind of noise. A big terrace on the top floor with a beautiful view over the golf-course to the sea. And a terrace for two bedrooms in the bottom floor to enjoy the setting sun on the sunbed, before going out for dinner.
There are about five restaurants reachable within a 10 minutes walk and you can find hundreds in Carvoeiro which is about 10 minutes distance by car.
Though there are many beautiful beaches within a 20 minutes distance, we preferred the Praia Centianes, which is about 5 minutes by car.
We got a very good value for the price, we enjoyed the staying at Sue's and Mike's house to the full and would come back whenever we can.
Thanks to personable Sue who arranged this at short notice and thanks to Juliet who gave us a warm welcome!
The villa is set in the small, beautifully maintained private complex of Vila Golfemar,, overlooking the 9 hole Vale de Milho golf course and the backdrop of the sea. It is just over a mile to the charming village of Carvoeiro, with its cliff-sided beach, quaint shops, bars / live music/karaoke, and wide selection of restaurants to suit all tastes.
Around 600 metres from the villa is the Rocha Brava resort (with grocery store, newsagent /popular tennis club / bars and restaurants), and the attractive nearest beach (Centiannes, overlooked by a little restaurant) is 1000 metres walk or drive away.
The property is within 3-15 mins drive of some of the most beautiful beaches and coves in the Algarve, including Caneiros, Algar Seco, Praia Grande and the stunning Marinha beach (the famous 'Algarve Postcard'!) Also within a leisurely 10-20 mins drive are 18-hole golf courses (Gramacho and Pinta), Water Parks (Slide and Splash, and Aqualand), the Algarve shopping centre at Guia, and the Zoomarine Sea Life centre with rides and live shows. There are boat trips taking in the caves and the spectacular coastline, or you can drive to the castle at Silves, the mountains of Monchique, or head for the West Coast with its Atlantic rollers. Something for everyone.
Golf: Vale do Milho is a 9 hole, par 3 course designed by Ryder Cup player Dave Thomas. The course provides a real challenge throughout it's 926 metres for all standards of players, and the green fees are very reasonable. Facilities include a lounge bar, restaurant, well stocked shop, snooker room and golf school.
Pestana & Gramacho are 18 hole courses less than a 10 minute drive away. They usually offer 'twilight' deals at relatively low cost.
Please ask if you want to borrow golf clubs - two sets are available, one ladies and one man's, with wood / putter and 11 and 8 irons respectively, for £15 each per week.
Tennis Information: Carvoeiro has two welcoming Tennis Clubs. Carvoeiro Clube de Tenis is set around a swimming pool, with 10 courts offering a variety of hard court / astro surfaces, and a practice wall. There are regular club sessions where you can mix in with members and others on holiday. There is also an aerobics studio, table tennis, a restaurant and bar which sells great coffee!
The other club, at Rocha Brava, has 4 courts and is just a 10 minute walk from the villa, and has club sessions for all-comers on most afternoons.
Group or individual coaching can be arranged at either club.
