average rating of 4.5 based on 2 reviews

A fantastic, well equipped family villa very close to Carvoeiro. A rural feel close to amenities.

  • 5 of 5

We went in July 2017, 4 adults and 2 children. The villa catered for all our needs with plenty of space, 2 bathrooms both with showers and baths.

The welcome pack consisting of bread, butter, ham, cheese, crisps, wine and other snacks was much appreciated.

There was air con in each bedroom which we used as temperatures got to 39 degrees.

The outside pool was a perfect size with the deep end being 2m deep and shallow end perfect for kids.

The BBQ was a little small which meant food came out in stages but was perfectly adequate.

We saw the gardener twice in 10 days and the maids came twice during our stay.

As you leave the villa there is a small farm, please feed the donkey which we called 'sponkey'. We were told to feed him carobs which grew on the surrounding trees but mis-heard so we fed him carrots.

Its about a 15min walk to the first pub, restaurant and supermarket and a further 10 mins into Carveoiro itself which is full of fantastic places to eat and drink.

We had great food in the Mirage, The Wolf and Villa Medici.

Isabel who help us arrange the holiday was brilliant and help sort out the pool lights and our transfer home.

All in all a great holiday had by John, Jenny, Kaye, Amy, Catherine & Tommy.......hope to be back soon!!!!

Owner's Response: thank you for taking the time to write such a positive and extensive review! We are happy you enjoyed the secluded surroundings ... in spite of being so close to all the coastal activity. Too many good restaurants to enjoy only during one trip! We'd be delighted to welcome you back. The team ;)

Great villa contains everything you could need for a relaxing break

  • 4 of 5

Perfect for our family of 4 plus grandparents.

All equipment provided and the welcome basket of biscuits, milk, juice, wine plus others was a lovely touch and very welcomed.

Pool was a good size and the size of the shallow end was ideal for our 4 year old.

The owners have thought of everything and made sure it is provided in the accommodation.

Quiet and peaceful location but is a little far from the main area in Carveiro if you just want to pop out to the shops.

Car: necessary


Closest beaches are Centeanes, Carvoeiro, Ferragudo, etc.

Typically, the south coast beaches, because of the calmer waves and gentle slopping shoreline, are very nice for wading, beach combing, safe swimming and sunbathing.

The west coast (40min. away) is exciting, wild and excellent for surfing, body boarding, and the general enjoyment of the sea and dramatic cliffs and landscape.


The airport in Lisbon is about a 3 hours drive. International Faro Airport: 45min(75km) on the A22 motorway; Car hires are recommended to reserve in advance of arrival, especially during the high season.

Please ask us for information.

Seville (Spain): about 3-hours drive.

The property is near the picturesque village of Alvor (8km) and the cities of Lagos (12km) and Portimão (10km). The city of Silves, once the capital of the Algarve, with its Moorish Castle and medieval streets 16km. Monchique mountain village, only 26km. Stop at Monchique Spring Water Spa on the way up. Easy sightseeing car trip: Sagres, Europe’s most southwestern point.

Water Park - 3km (there are several), Horseriding (10km).

Shopping Center (Guia) - 15km

Praia da Rocha hub of shops, night life/Casino and down town Portimão is about 15min. drive.

Formula 1 circuit about 20 mins away.

Further Details

Many restaurants and convenience stores, shops, banks, all nearby. The village of Carvoeiro is like a quaint shopping center, but there are many others around: Aqua Shopping Center in Portimão, Guia Shopping Center in Albufeira area.

Other activities available in the area: windsurfing, surf, para-gliding, skydiving, kite-surfing, horseback riding, cycling, hiking, dolphin watching, kayaking, jet skiing, diving, snorkeling, paragliding, coastal tours, sailing, fishing.

You will find all the details in a Welcome Folder upon arrival, but feel free to ask us for more details!

The extensive coast line and beach area offer plenty of privacy and sunbathing space for all, without any fear of towel overlapping.
