There is a bar, restaurant and mini market very close to the villa as well as the main fruit/veg/fish/meat market.

Slide and Splash water park is a 10 minute drive, and Zoomarine (aqua shows and swimming with dolphins), Algoz zoo, Pera sand sculptures and Aqualand water park are all within 20 minutes drive. A large supermarket, Intermarche, is on the outskirts of Carvoeiro. Tourist Licence AL 7093/AL.
The reality was even better (the villa was huge, very well equipped) than the description on the site, location even closer to downtown than we thought. A lot of space even for many persons, great pool, possible to spend the whole day there without even going out. Many facilities are very close by. We appreciated very much that the owner adapted to our needs. Beautiful beaches at a walking distance.
However, some parts in the house smelt humid, like the entrance hall or the cupboards in the kitchen. Also during one night, the neighbours next door came back drunk and started to make noise. And by the end of our stay there were ants in the house, especially in the kitchen.
However, the whole experience was wonderful, would recommend it to everybody and would come back myself in the same circumstances.
A huge property with plenty of space for 9 adults and teenagers,. Fab outside spaces.,Pool area and bar/games room and outside dining were wonderful.
Plenty of car parking
Easy short walk albeit steep, into cavoiero. Ideal for family with teenagers
However if wi fi, TV and air con are a priority to you this may not be the place for you. No wi fi unless you purchase a dongle - however 2 mins down the road the kids found free wi fi spot to give them an Internet fix! TV doesn't really work. Which didn't matter to us . Air con tripped the electricity constantly if it was on in more than one room.
These things didn't spoil the holiday fir us at all as it is reflected in pride of villa rental. And we would go there again without a doubt
This visit to this wonderful villa, and although in the quieter months the house and Carvoeiro still don't fail to impress. Huge spacious house, more than enough for a large family and friends. 5 minute walk into Carvoeiro which has all amenities but also ideal suited for a hire car as its situated centrally in the algarve. The house is always immaculate and Truus the villa manager is always a phone call away to help with any queries we have. Amazing pool and outside facilities, perfect for BBQ and relaxing. Will be coming back in July for another visit. Couldn't recommend a villa highly enough.
Enjoyed another lovely holiday in this beautiful villa - it has everything to make your holiday one to remember and is a short walk from the town. We have been several times to this villa and would not stay anywhere else. Couldn't recommend highly enough.
A large villa in an ideal situation 5 minutes walk to the town. Villa Manager very helpful. Kept clean and tidy (cleaner comes almost every day). Beach towels supplied which was helpful. Great BBQ and outdoor dining area. Pool room/ table good, but table top table tennis needs replacing. Lovely pool with slide, but pool tiles missing and needs repairing. Water in pool needs constant filling. Dining furniture rickety (promised to fix). If all aircon on at same time, the electrics trip and you need to go and reset all the time at the fuse box. Old big box TV's! No WIFI which is strange in this day and age, only a dongle! For this money you would expect more modern equipment. Wardrobe door just fell off without even touching it (they fixed this immediately though), shower head needing fixing (again done quickly).
Overall, the position is ideal being a short walk to town and the restaurants and bars. The outdoor area is good, but it in general everything needs a bit of renovation. Also beware that items got deducted from the deposit even though the issues were nothing to do with us! Not much but enough to be very frustrating/annoying.
Did we enjoy it? Yes
Modern? No, more traditional old style villa, but needs renovation.
Car Parking? Plentiful
Service? Good people available and problems dealt with promptly
Would I recommend it? Not sure, depends on your expectation for the money.
I guess you could get more modern accomodation with better facilities outside of town for similar or better pricing, but you have to balance that with the ease to go out in the evening and have shops an amenities on your doorstep.
Carvoeiro has plent yof choice for restaurants, bars etc. It is iease to get to all the Algarve atttractions. Plenty of golf course within 30 mins drive.
A comfortable home-from-home, with everything you could wish for and more. Impeccably clean on arrival, wonderful pool and games room, lovely bbq area and walkable into town for the beach, bars and restaurants. Couldn't recommend highly enough and will definately be back.
The villa is situated a short walk from the centre of Carvoeiro, a delightful fishing village nestling around a beautiful bay with its golden sandy beach. Water sports available in summer months. There is also a diving school at Paraiso, a 5 minute drive away. Carvoeiro offers a wide choice of restaurants, shops and bars. Nearby towns are Portimao and Albufeira and Guia with its state of the art shopping centre. There are waterslide parks nearby at Lagoa and Porches.
