Quiet houses with beautiful views of the sea and country side - Colina Branca No. 17

Bedrooms 2
Space 968 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights



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.

Schönes Haus , zentral gelegen

  • 5 of 5

Schönes Haus , gut gelegen , nur wenige Minuten zu Fuß ins Zentrum, aber auch gut gelegen für Ausflüge mit dem Mietwagen, um die Algarve zu erkunden.

Wir waren Ende März/anfang April dort und es war die ersten Tage noch recht frisch und kühl. Doch durch Kamin und Klimaanlage (Achtung: kostet Strom) konnten wir gut durchheizen. Die Terrasse ist wunderschön zum Frühstücken und Nachmittags zum Entspannen und Lesen.

Das Bad ist schön gross, ebenfalls beide Schlafzimmer mit guten Betten.

Toll war natürlich , dass jedenTag die Haushaltshilfe kam und alles sauber hielt - ein echter Luxus.

Die Küche ist super ausgestattet - eine der besten , die wir je in Ferienwohnungen hatten. In der Nähe (gut mit dem Auto zu erreichen) ist ein Intermarché , der auch Sonntags geöffnet hat (sehr praktisch), im Ort sind kleinere Läden , die das Nötigste abdecken.

Alles in alle, ein sehr empfehlenswertes Haus für einen schönen Urlaub

Echt een aanrader. no complaints

  • 5 of 5

Dit huis kan ik iedereen aanraden. Van alle gemakken voorzien. elke dag wordt het schoongemaakt en worden de handdoeken gewassen. Groot privé zwembad...via een trapje ben je zo op het strand en in Carvoeiri (leuk toeristisch plekje). Het huis is voorzien van twee ruime terrassen met uitzicht op de Oceaan...ik zeg,...doen.
