A traditional Portuguese villa in an outstanding location for all the family to enjoy. Exquisite indeed, and surely a vacation dream house! Don't miss it!
This is about the fifth time we have stayed at this villa and have been coming to Carvoeiro for 30 years.
You couldn't be in a better position, with fantastic views across the sea, but only a 10 minute stroll into the town centre.
We did find the villa a bit noisier than previous years as there are a lot more people parking in Algar Seco just outside the villa. Having said that, it wouldn't stop us from booking again.
Anabella, the housekeeper was really helpful and spoke good English which we appreciated. She was really approachable and would help with any queries.
My family recently stayed in the villa for a week and it was a lovely experience. The house is well equipped and well maintained and the garden is lovely. The wifi was great. Check in was easy - Jose met us at the property and gave us a run through. It was nice that the house had an alarm and a safe. Although we felt perfectly safe at all times. The heated pool was the highlight. The only negative, if I'm being picky, is the decor is a bit dated and there is no double bed in the main/master bedroom. The beds were firm and the towels were a bit tired. But everything was neat, tidy, clean and comfortable. It felt like a true Portuguese home and I would definately stay again.
The villa is located on a quiet road that overlooks the ocean. Nestled next to the road is a boardwalk-type pathway the winds along the rocks. The main beach is down a steepish hill which my 77-year-old mother managed quite fine. The walk up was a bit taxing for her, but she did it. If mobility issues are a concern, the walk down to the beach and the main square of the town might be a bit difficult. However, there are taxis that zip up and down, so there really are no issues. There is a playground about a 3 minute walk from the house which was a bonus for my 5 year-old and plenty of fine restaurants and pubs within walking distances.
There are some small local grocery stores within walking distance, however, the bigger and better ones are located a 5 minute drive from town.
Maid service was a bonus. Thank you for a lovely holiday.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your villa. The stating is beautiful and all the amenities are close by. Our maid Annabel is a lovely lady who looked after us all very well. We particularly enjoyed the pool and the outside area. It is a place we would like to visit again. Thank you for a lovely holiday. Daphne R
The villa is perfect for our family, large heated swimming pool, amazing uninterrupted sea view and within easy walking distance to the town with its very good restaurants. It is really well looked after, very clean with an excellent housekeeper, gardens are beautiful and the pool is very clean.The recent addition of WIFI worked very well. We first came in 2010 and have returned each year and already booked for next year! Special thanks to Jose who meets us on our arrival. The owner is very easy to deal with.
Best villa that we have stayed in, we have visited carvoeiro one to twice a year for the past 8 years. Could not fault anything, clean, well kept, all you would need in the kitchen, well worth paying for the pool heating 30 degrees with pool lights. mr silva was very pleasent. the views amazing morning noon and night.
would hope to spot here again.
A fabulous villa. Lovely views with a great location, just a few minutes walk from town. The villa is spotlessly clean, the maid came twice whilst we were there and was great. We paid extra for the pool heat which was perfect, lovely and warm. The rooms were decorated nicely and the beds were fairly comfortable. Would happily recommend to others for a villa holiday in Carveoiro. One recommendation, please add wifi. I did have to keep up with business needs whilst away, would have been easier to do at the villa, rather than whilst out and about.
This villa is in a residential area, just 900 yards from Carvoeiro's picturesque cove beach and a wide choice of good restaurants, bars and shops. It is close to all the amenities of this small but thriving location. There are several other beaches and places to visit in the area. It is in a perfect location for those preferring not to hire a car, having easy walking distances. For those who do, the villa is well located for numerous places to visit. For night-life, apart from many bars in Carvoeiro, Praia da Rocha is a bustling resort just beyond Portimão, with a huge beach and all kind of bars, clubs and entertainment. For children, a waterpark is 5 and a half miles away, whilst for golfers there are 3 courses in the area - Vale do Milho, Pinta and Gramacho.
You can easily acess the house by the freeway (named A22, or 'Via do Infante') or by the EN-125 road to Lagoa. Lagoa is only a five minute drive away from the house (located in Carvoeiro).
Other Activities: scuba diving, other water sports, 'Slide&Splash' and 'Big One' - water parks (best and biggest in the Algarve), night clubs and bars
