About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Casa na Colina (AL 5079) is a luxury holiday villa in exclusive Carvoeiro Club, set in its own secluded garden with lawns, palm trees and orange and lemon trees too. it has glorious panoramic ocean views and its own private heated pool. On a hill, in easy walking distance from picturesque Carvoeiro Village. Free wifi.

Celeste, our kind and efficient housekeeper, comes everyday Monday to Saturday. She cleans the house, makes the beds, washes the dishes and, on request, does personal laundry. Usually she will baby-sit too, if asked, but does expect some payment for baby-sitting.

The lounge, dining room, and kitchen are at the floor above ground-level to make the most of the views. Outside the lounge and dining room is a large shady terrace with a table and chairs for outside meals and a big cushioned seat for enjoying the views and dozing.

The garden is peaceful and secluded with a marvelous BBQ area.

The 10 x 5 meter swimming pool (heating optional at extra cost) is surrounded by an ample sitting area with lots of sun loungers. There are gentle steps to the shallow end (80 cm) deep.

Discounts may be available for small parties.

Simply beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We had one of the most relaxing and beautiful holidays ever at Casa na Colina and enjoyed ringing in the new year there. The villa is extremely spacious, tastefully decorated, and very comfortable. The garden, the pool area and the various terraces with fabulous views were a real delight. We used the barbecue on 2 nights and ate sitting out with our wine glasses and delicious food. Our 7 year-old daughters forgot about their gadgets and spent endless hours soaking in the winter sun in the garden and sitting by the pool and dipping their feet in it (the weather was just a bit too cold for swimming). Celeste, the housekeeper, was wonderfully kind and friendly. The beach and restaurants were walking distance, and felt refreshing. We would love to go back there for a longer period.

Space, Serenity (and Sunshine)

  • 5 of 5

My first trip to Portugal and the bar has been set high. Casa na Colina is the perfect place for peace, relaxation and proximity to the sea - and for ice-cream! The villa is of a very high standard: clean, uncluttered and lots of space so that you don't have to trip over your fellow holiday-makers. The bedrooms (four of them) all have their own en-suite and are extremely comfortable. All of this is looked after by Celeste, the housekeeper and a real treasure, who made a lazy time even lazier and kept the whole place spick and span.

The all-essential and good-sized pool beckoned almost on an hourly basis (we were very lucky with the weather at this time of year) offering an interlude from reading or dozing in the sunshine.

The villa is 10-15 minute walk from good restaurants and 20 minutes or so from the beach at Carvoeiro (but longer to walk home given the hill, my age and the ice-creams). Further afield there is lots to explore which is what I shall try and do more of next time. That and the other flavours of ice-cream I missed out on this trip.

Thoroughly relaxing

  • 5 of 5

2 adults and 2 teenagers. We all enjoyed our stay immensely!

Very well maintained and clean.

Lots of different areas inside and outside to relax in. There were also shaded areas in the large garden.

Great sized pool to play in.

We sat at the table on the terrace to eat most of our meals because of the fabulous sea view.

We used the barbecue on several evenings. Felt thoroughly lazy because Celeste cleaned everything for us the next day.

The air-conditioning was greatly appreciated because of the hot weather. Great selection of TV channels and movies available via the included TV package.

We ate out at some local restaurants, which were a manageable walking distance from the villa (this does include some hills)

Slide and Splash aquatic park a great day out for all ages. Only a short drive away and discounted tickets available from the Carvoeiro Clube reception.

Great stay! We would love to come back again and would definitely recommend it to others.

Wonderful villa, couldn't ask for anything more!

Spacious layout with the living quarters upstairs (to benefit from the gorgeous views) & bedrooms downstairs for privacy. Spotlessly clean thanks to Celeste. Lovely garden & pool area.

Quiet neighborhood.

Short distance from cliff walks, restaurants & Carvoeiro town including the beach.

Great location to explore both the east & west sections of the Algarve.

Excellent response & communication with owners, before, during & after our stay. They are on top of everything.

Will definitely plan a return visit hopefully in the not too distant future!

Beautiful house, very easy transactions, highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

The house in reality appears even better than the pictures posted. Pictures can only convey so much. We found it very relaxing to wake up every day and have a clear view of the sea, the swimming pool and the beautiful garden right from the living room!!. The location is one of the best places to visit in southern Europe even during the off winter season, the outdoor heated swimming pool was perfectly usable. We also were able to golf nearby...

We travel a lot , what was also outstanding about this trip planning was how remarkably easy it was to deal with the owners, who went out of the way to ensure that our arrival and subsequent stay was problem free ... Thanks David and Helen.

Casa na Colina

  • 5 of 5

Well equipped clean and enjoyable homely house. The Domestic helper was very friendly. Once the owners came to know we were travelling during x'mas holiday they sent us the house keys. The wonderful heated swimming pool and well maintained garden makes the holiday very relaxing.
