Overview

Description

Colina Branca No. 17

This tastefully furnished two-storey house serves as an ideal starting point for excursions to the beautiful beaches of Algarve or the interesting hinterland.

This is an independent townhouse in a beautifully landscaped quiet complex on the slope with a large pool (fresh water heated by the sun) some what on top of the village centre. Thus there is a beautiful view of the bay over the town. The town centre is within walking distance reachable in about 5 minutes, so no car is needed to make small purchases or to get to the local beach.

With the fully equipped kitchen, it is also possible to cook at home.

The living room with closed fireplace also offers cosy warmth during the winter months. In the day time you can enjoy the sun on a lounge chair at the spacious covered terrace.

From Monday - Friday, a housemaid takes care of making the house tidy and clean.

About the property

Colina Branca

Carvoeiro is one of the few places in the Algarve, where no higher than 3 storeys may be built. Thus, this former fishing village has retained its charm even today. The houses are built on a slope and hence provide a beautiful view of the village's own bay. All shops for daily needs including a variety of restaurants are within walking distance. Carvoeiro also offers nice boutiques for shopping. An international supermarket can be reached in a few minutes by car, which supplies all products in all categories. Day trips, for example, Faro, Albufeira, Silves, Portimao, Lagos or Cabo de Sao Vincente are organised quickly. Every day you can explore a new typical beach bay in Algarve.

On-site support is provided by a property management company (German, English, Portuguese and French speaking).

For golfers there are beautiful courses of the Pestana Golf group in 10 minutes' drive: Gramacho, Vale da Pinta, Silves Golf (Check out the website link)

In all the three houses there will be a housemaid available at your service from Monday to Friday for about 2 hours.

Perfect Getaway Spot

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at 17 Colina Branca for four weeks in February. It was perfect for us. 113 steps from the "IN Road" and 5 minutes to the center of town. 2 very nice bedrooms downstairs and 2 full bathrooms.

You can hear the ocean on a nice night. We fell in love with Carvoeiro. Not too big and not too small. It was very comfortable to walk around. Friendly people and great food options.

The house could use a name, I vote for "House on the Hill".

The only issue and it is not really an issue, is that there is too much outdoor furniture. I am not sure why you need seating for 24 people (on two patios) when the house only sleeps four. It is very nice furniture, just too many cushions to take in and out every day.

In Summary. We would recommend this house for anyone and especially ones that like a little walk to work up an appetite.

Even better than the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

Having rented the house without seeing it I was a bit nervous about it. However, when I opened the door to the house I was SO happy. The house is luxurious and mordern - with aircon in all the right places. The view is simply stunning and - most surprsing to me - is the peace and quiet eventhough the town centre is just 5 minutes away. The service of the local property manager was also very impressive. We had a waterpipe that broke - and it was fixed within the hour - amazing.

Tolles Haus mit erstklassiger Ausstattung und super Terrassenmöblierung. Kurze Wege ins Ortszentrum und zum Hausstrand. Wir kommen gerne wieder.

Schöne Unterkunft in zentraler Lage

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben 8 Tage in diesem schönen und voll ausgestatteten Reihenhaus verbracht und die Zeit sehr genossen. Besonders hervorzuheben sind der hervorragende Hausmädchenservice (Mo-Fr), die zentrale Lage bis zum Ort Carvoeiro- welchen man fußläufig erreichen kann-, die moderne Küche mit sooo viel Equipment und die zwei Terrassen mit einem traumhaften Ausblick. Es war einfach eine schöne Zeit und es hat uns an nichts gefehlt.

Ein perfektes Domizil um die Algarve zu erkunden und zu entspannen.

  • 5 of 5

Volltreffer!, sagte mein Sohn (15) heute auf dem Rückflug zu mir, als ich Ihn fragte ob ich diesmal alles richtig gemacht hatte. Mutter, Vater, Kind hatten uns für den Urlaub 2017 auf eine Mischung Chillen und Expedition verständigt. Das Haus ist dafür der perfekte Ausgangspunkt. Für die chilligen Tage hatten wir Strände in der Nähe die wir fußläufig erreichen konnten oder waren spätestens nach 5-10 Minuten mit dem Auto an Weiteren. Nach dem Strand konnte sich jeder Dank der 2 Terrassen komfortabel zurückziehen und hatte beim Lesen oder chatten (Wlan) etc. immer auch einen wunderschönen Ausblick auf´s Meer und das Dank der cleveren Bauweise morgens und ab Nachmittag im Schatten. Die überaus komfortabel ausgestatte Küche nutzten wir nur an zwei Abenden, haben uns aber über den großen Kühlschrank gefreut. Die immense Auswahl auch guter Restaurants in der Umgebung hat uns begeistert. Das Frühstück haben wir dank des tollen Bäckers, der nach ein paar Stufen erreicht ist, zelebriert. Gestärkt konnten wir dank der guten Anbindung alle Hotspots der Algarve in kürzester Zeit mit dem Auto erreichen und wenn wir wiederkamen, war das Haus wie von Geisterhand geputzt. Wir haben in 14 Jahren Urlaub,( auch mit zwei Kindern )noch nie ein Urlaubsziel gedoppelt, hier könnte wir uns das durchaus vorstellen!
