You can walk for miles along the cliffs in both directions enjoying the breathtaking views of the sea. The sea is turquoise, the sand golden, the sandstone cliffs red and the sky blue, so all so relaxing and colorful and with beautiful birds.

The kitchen is large and well equipped with dishwasher, fridge, freezer, washing machine, dryer and coffee machine. There are UK, German, French and Spanish channels on the satellite TV system along with a good supply of German and English books.

The lounge TV is a Samsung LED with a DVD player and Playstation PS3 (bring your own games). The lounge also has an iPod dock, free internet and Wii fit. The master bedroom has a LED TV and freesat box.

From the rooftop terrace you have a sweeping sea view that runs along the coast to Portimão and on to Alvor and Lagos.

The perfect villa for a large group of friends or family holiday; it has everything you could possibly need - fabulous bedrooms and bathrooms, superb outdoor space, lovely pool, outdoor shower and BBQ area. You can easily do without a car as the beach s 5 minutes' walk away, there is a local shop, great café/bar (Helder's) and plenty of local restaurants within walking distance. Highly recommended!

  • 4 of 5

Great location. Cliff walk right there. Cave boat tours right there. If you have a car many other excellent beaches 10-15 away. Mini mart and restaurant a minute away. Nicer shops in Carvoeiro. Nice for evening stroll to town. Slip and slide water park worth while and not too far away

Lovely Casa Maria

  • 5 of 5

After three visits to this wonderful villa I can thoroughly recommend it. It's in a great location, very peaceful yet walking distance from the beach (with lovely beach bar) and a selection of really good local restaurants. There is a supermarket at the top of the road (2 mins away) that stocks everything and next door a great little restaurant for breakfast. Casa Maria is very comfortable and well furnished, has four lovely bedrooms all with en-suite and plenty of off-road parking. It's very well equipped with everything we needed and we felt very safe and secure. There's lots of space both inside and out and the gardens are lovely with some really nice spots to sunbath or sit in the shade and read. The pool is big, ideal for swimming lengths but also has a shallow end for children. Caveiro is a ten minute drive away and taxis there and back are no problem and inexpensive. We love it here, it has everything we need for a thoroughly relaxing holiday.

Excellent villa

  • 5 of 5

Our first time in Portugal and we were not disappointed. Villa Maria is 5*; every thing has been well thought out for your comfort, the kitchen is fully equipped with every thing you could possibly need. The decor is to a very high standard and furnishings are very comfortable with plenty of spacious rooms and areas to relax in. The sun terrace and pool with patio are an excellent place to eat and relax in the sun. We enjoyed the peacefulness and had a very relaxed holiday. Restaurant and bars are within a short walk but a car is useful for days out and trips to restaurant hill for more variety for dinner. We look forward to returning to this lovely villa...

Great villa in a nice quiet location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely, relaxing break in this beautiful villa. Its spacious with everything you need and has a really nice pool area. Lots of nice restaurants and a blue star beach within an easy walk so nothing to worry about. I'd definitely recommend it and would book again.

Car: recommended

In 15 minutes (about two km) you can the beautiful village of Carvoeiro with all its facilities, u. A. Banks, post office, cafes and restaurants, English and German medical supplies and many small shops and the beach Carvoeiro, within walking distance.

Car hire is recommended. With it, you are in a short time in the next larger cities like Portimão, Albufeira or Lagoa or at fantastic beaches. Baden is almost throughout the year possible.

In the immediate vicinity you will find u. A. An equestrian center, two water parks, the Zoomarine, many golf courses, a tennis center, large shopping centers and plenty of watersports. For hikers, the cliff is a worthwhile goal.

Carvoeiro is the ideal base from which to explore the Algarve. These include u. A. Coastal walks, Monchique Mountains, with more than 900 meters above sea level, Sagres as southwestern point of Europe, historic towns such as Lagos and Silves, an interesting day trip to the capital Lisbon (takes about three hours) or an exciting day trip to the Spanish Seville (journey time about two hours).
