About Isabel M.

We have owned property with friends for a number of years and have grown to love the Algarve and Carvoeiro in particular. As we have all aged since acquiring the property our children, who used to enjoy it themselves, now bring their children as well. We enjoy golf which is readily available nearby.

We have requested Isabel to help us with the bookings of the villa - please ask her anything you need, as she is quite resourceful and knowledgeable of the area.

Isabel M. purchased this villa in 2014

Why Isabel M. chose Carvoeiro area

Private, yet near restaurants, shopping, resorts, and we can have the grandchildren walk to the village and back!

What makes this villa unique

Completely private, parking secure inside property, children can run around in the garden as the property is gated.

Best Villa I've rented in many trips to Carvoeiro

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Villa Pepanina was the best holiday we have had in Carvoeiro over many visits.

The description regarding location, layout and amenities was very accurate and in fact we were more than satisfied with everything.

The villa had everything and more than we expected and even better than the photographs portrayed on the website.

The property was very clean and well maintained. Services through Vila Nova exceptional with really helpful friendly staff. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone and hope to return myself sometime soon.

Best Restaurants - The Wolf Grill and Bar, L'Orange and Villa Medici. Beach Bar Kalu at Praia Grande also very good. Recommend Slide and Splash and Pestana Golf.

Overall excellent vacation

Lovely villa, can't be faulted.

  • 5 of 5

We have recently returned from a great week staying at this villa. The villa is located in a nice, quiet area of Cavoeiro and the pictures and description don't do it justice as was even better than we expected. Three large bedrooms, all en suite, fully equipped kitchen and a nice big living room. Nice, well kept grounds surround the villa where you can dine outside in a number of areas. The terrace outside the master bedroom is a great place to watch the sunset. The pool is excellent with plenty of sun loungers and parasols. The villa is spotlessly clean and the pool was cleaned twice during our stay.

We arrived way before our check in time (before noon) and after a very early morning flight were relieved to be able to check in on our arrival which was very much appreciated.

Cavoeiro is a small but pleasant town, not too crowded yet plenty of choice for restaurants and bars. The Villa Nova restaurant is definitely worth a visit, slightly dearer than some in town but the food and service is well worth the extra cost, plus you can walk to it instead of having to drive into town. The boardwalk walk along the cliffs is a nice walk.

All in all we really enjoyed our stay here and can highly recommend it.

Car: recommended

The Carvoeiro beach is about a five minute walk away whilst Caneiros and Ferragudo are fifteen minutes away by car but well worth a visit. A number of the beaches have a 'beach bar' located on or nearby them. The area supports very safe bathing.

Excellent Golf Courses nearby: Pestana - Gramacho Course, Vale de Milho and more.

Ask us about golf rentals and discounts.

A number of 'Slide and Splash' attractions are nearby and an excellent dolphin display team together with other animal attractions is only 40 minutes away by car. An interesting zoo is located in Lagos (about 30 minutes away by car), and a sand sculpture display is maintained throughout the season about twenty minutes away by car. Two large supermarkets which cater both for local and tourist requirements are located just 5 minutes away by car and a major shopping mall exists in Portimao (15 minutes by car) as well in the other direction a similar complex - Guia - is located 30 minutes away. There are a significant number of restaurants located in Carvoeiro, many of which remain open throughout the year and they cater for all tastes and costs. Whilst many typical Portuguese establishments exist, German, French, Chinese, American, Indian and Italian and other speciality premises are available.

Just outside Portimao, but well signposted from the A22, the Algarve Motor racing Circuit was created only a few years ago. It provides an excellent location for a family day out. Ask us about discounts provided by established partnership.

Another favourite of the area are the street / carboot markets that occur somewhere within the Algarve every day. The local news papers identify where the markets are being held each day but some favourites are located in Ferragudo, Silves, Loule, Messines and Monchique.
