Carvoeiro: Carvoeiro is a pretty fishing village with its own beach just 45 minutes along the coast road west of Faro Airport and 3 hours south of Lisbon . Still retaining the character and tradition of Portuguese life, the local shops and mini-Mercado's sell most of the things you will need. There is also a Bank, Bureau de Change, Pharmacy and 2 Doctors Clinics. Carvoeiro has all the essentials for the perfect holiday.

The local market sells fresh fruit, vegetables, meat and locally caught fish. There is also a good butcher and a baker in the village. The much larger town of Portimao with its fishing harbour, numerous restaurants and many varied shops is only 10 minutes drive away. A whole day can be spent there starting with breakfast of freshly caught sardines grilled alfresco by the harbour side.

Restaurants - Bars - Nightlife: The many bars and restaurants offer all types of cuisine including Vietnamese, Italian, French and of course Portuguese, where you can enjoy an excellent meal of freshly caught fish and sample the famous inexpensive Portuguese wines. Prices vary so check the menu outside. All of the restaurants welcome children and some have special children's menus.

Golf and Tennis, Slide'n'Splash.: Our propertie is within walking distance of the on the beautiful Vale do Milho course. Rounds can be arranged through the Club House. There are two more courses in Carvoeiro, these are Gramacho and Pinta and facilities here also include a driving range. The championship course at Peninais a 20 minute drive away and the world famous Vilamoura is a 35 minute drive. Vale do Lobo is only a 40 minute drive away. If taking golf clubs, these may need to be notified to your airline. A half set is allowed per person but is included in the baggage allowance (20 kilos).

Fantastic Holiday Home

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely house with everything a family needs for a great holiday. We particularly enjoyed the outside area, the gardens, shade and sun areas, lovely BBQ, the Sonos sound system, beautiful bathrooms and a god sized pool. The property was clean and well equipped. We would highly recommend Julios, good food and easy to walk to. A car was useful and we made several trips to the new supermarket, Apolonia, the Waitrose of the Algarve! Thank you. The Mitchells

Wonderfully relaxing holiday.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable relaxing 2 weeks in your lovely appointed contemporary villa. Plenty of space for 9 of us for the first week. A wonderful pool, great BBQ area, a lovely round table for alfresco meals for us to sit comfortably round on the veranda. The beds were very comfortable too. Car hire recommended but can walk 10-15 mins to several restaurants and a shop. Would definitely stay again. Many thanks

Lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

Lovely villa. Looks exactly as it does on the website so no disappointment on arrival. Very clean.

We stayed for 2 weeks (4 adults and 3 kids). Location is a 10 minute stroll downhill to Rocha Brava complex where there are a few restaurants and a supermarket. More restaurants a further 5 minutes walk. It is quite steep coming back up, so might be tough enough for an elderly person.

A 30 minute walk pushing a buggy into the town. A nice walk and we found 3 routes. Again quite hilly so we always got a taxi back (about 6 or 7 euro).

Centianes beach was about 20 minute walk downhill so a tough one coming back in the heat. A good excuse to stop in Rocha Brava for a beer to cool down!

Frank and Isobel were very helpful during the booking process and responded very quickly to any queries we had when we were there.

I would definitely recommend the villa for a relaxing holiday.

Great Villa quiet location

  • 4 of 5

3 adults+4 children (12-21)

Large clean villa with all mod cons.

Great music system, wi-fi and table tennis were welcome additions.

Great Restaurant -Julios- a walk away.

You need a car as there is not much to do nearby.

Pool not heated and seemed cold for August

Owner's Response: Dear Martin and family. Thanks for your review. It can be that the swimming pool was not warm enough because we had it just before your arrival reconstructed and let it fill up again with new water. Maybe therefor it had not enough time to warm up because it is a big pool. We also recomanded a car although there are seven restaurants and a supermarked just five till ten minutes walk from the villa. Just a new restaurant is open in Golfemar named Lighthouse and also very good food and we agreed that Julios is a good restaurant. Also the beach is nearby. But the villa is far enough from Carvoeiro that it is nice quit when you lay next to your pool or going to sleep. Thanks for your visit and we hope to have you again as one of our renters.

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa is absolutely stunning, we were a party of 4 adults and two children and all our needs were catered for.

Everything is very modern, the villa is spotless and has fabulous grounds.

Frank is super helpful and when we had a minor problem it was sorted without any delay.

We would recommend a car to get into the main town of Carvoeiro , as without one you are limited to just a small number of restauraunts in walking distance.

If you like the pictures on the website, basically thats what you are going to get,

We are only providing this review so late after the holiday due to ill health on return.

Don't have any doubts about this villa if you want somewhere with all mod cons , thats peaceful, well maintained and within easy driving distance of the town

Perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

Having just returned from a 3 week stay in this lovely villa , I would like to take the opportunity to compliment the owners Frank and Isobel for putting together a great villa and for being so attentive to any of our queries . We had a great stay with a mixture of family and friends. The location and surroundings are perfect for a super vacation in the Algarve. We have visited the Algarve 12 times over the last few years and this is our top spot. All the amenities you need are close at hand although you do need a car to get the maximum benefit during your stay. The villa is of a high standard, well equipped, extremely well maintained and I would have no hestitation in recommending it for your perfect vacation.
