About David

After moving to the Algarve from Portugal in 1999, we decided to design a villa which would tick everyone’s box for a perfect holiday. After 5 years of careful planning we had the plan and the design approved and started the process of building the perfect Holiday Rental Villa. Each bedroom has their own bathroom, safe and plenty of cupboard space. The kitchen, is huge with 2 sets of plates and cutlery, ideal for extended families to enjoy the interaction of preparing a family BBQ. We moved the outside seating area near to the kitchen for ease. It also has a bar with fully pumped draft beer if required. The living room, is open plan next to the kitchen that has everything for entertainment. WIFI, Flat screen TV, DVD and surround sound, SKY Channels and ITV, BBC and movies, it has the full package.

We also have very large hand built wooden table that can seat 12 comfortably. The patio door open out to the gated terrace overlooking the pool, with sofas, to sit an enjoy the sunset drinks or just watch the children play in the pool. Gates stops little children from entering the garden and pool.

In the garden, we have a full size table tennis table, large 8 x 4 meter heated pool (optional), a 6 seater hot tub, which is always fun for everyone. A large patio with 12 deck beds and shaded area. We have just installed a new outside eating area near to the pool and kitchen.

There is a large grassed area for playing ball games and a beautifully manicured landscaped mature garden. In the garden we have also just installed a large climbing frame and slide for the company Little Tykes.

Our philosophy is for you the you the guest to enjoy your holiday and we just want you have a wonderful memorable time, without hassle, without stress, and most of all those precious times with friends, grandchildren, children and grandparents are priceless.

David purchased this villa in 2001

Why David chose Salicos

We chose this villa, Casa Valhalla, due to its location and views. We looked along the Algarve and found Carvoeiro offed the most for family values. Having many bars and restaurants so close to the villa, but the secluded tranquil location made this idea. The villa was used by a local builder called George De Lagos, as a show villa to promote his building services, where he ended up building over 100 villa in and around Carvoeiro.

What makes this villa unique

Location and relaxation is what we want you to enjoy. Having thought of most items that everyone would want, we have added 2 bikes, for the adventurous one to explore the coast. Or just use the bikes for a gentle cycle to the village. There are plenty of taxis in the square in Carvoeiro, so if you wanted a stroll into the village, enjoy the fun in the square with live music and entertainment, and get a taxi home, great end to the evening.

Guestbook comments from the manager

27th Oct. - 3rd Nov. 2014. Had a fantastic family holiday in this wonderful villa. Came for Dave’s 50th Birthday and Howard arranged a birthday cake for us. The heated pool was a real bonus and we spent many hours in it. Very safe for children. The weather for this time of year has been brilliant and was the icing on the cake. Had a real chill out. Having the villa cleaned and the towels changed midweek was a very nice touch and much appreciated. Had some great meals out, but the best for us was the A Rede Restaurant at the top of the hill. Amazing food and really good atmosphere, made us feel so welcome. Would recommend the villa to anyone. Thanks Howard for all your help. David, Ursula & Family.

The villa is perfect for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Dear David & Mandy,

What could have been a better way to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary than being with our wonderful family in your stunning villa.

You have thought of everything to make this such a special place to be. From the welcome pack on arrival which even included a milky bar for our 20 month old grandson Callum to Mandy's wonderful spa treatments, a real holiday bonus to have these available at the villa, absolutely brilliant!

The villa is perfect for a family holiday. It's spacious, light, clean and very well equipped. The layout is safe for young children especially with the gated area.

Carveiro is a very pleasant walk from the villa taking about 20 minutes, we had some lovely meals in the village but cooked a quite a lot in the villa including of course several barbecues, full of the wonderful fresh local fish. We spent a lot of time chilling around the pool and hot tub, cold beers and wine in hand just what was needed to recharge the batteries.

David & Mandy it was lovely to meet you and thank you for all your help with our booking and making sure everything was so perfect for our stay. We really hope to return again in the future with our expanding family of grandchildren!

Best wishes

Jane, Dave & Familyx

Perfect villa for family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We were a family group of 3 generations, ages ranging from 14 to 59 and we all absolutely loved the villa, the men especially loving the beer on tap. The villa is luxurious whilst still maintaining a homely, welcoming atmosphere. There are so many little touches that all go to making this the perfect place to stay for a holiday, from the best welcome pack I have ever had, a safe in every bedroom and the brilliant bbq area being just a few. There is plenty of space for everyone to be together either by the pool, in the lounge area and the dining table is brilliant, but there are also plenty of places to escape to too. Carvoeiro is about a 25 minute walk away, or a few minutes drive, and has a lovely little beach and loads of places to eat. We can’t wait to go back!

Beautiful Villa Close to Carvoeiro

  • 5 of 5

My family have been holidaying in Portugal, specifically in Carvoeiro, for the past 10 years. Each year we have rented a different Villa in the surrounding area. Despite being one of the least expensive, Villa Valhalla was the best yet. The Villa benefits from its close proximity to the town, has been rebuilt to a very high standard and is beautifully equipped, ideal for a large family with children. The support staff were highly attentive and helpful without being intrusive in anyway.

I will definitely be returning to Villa Valhalla next year and highly recommend it.

Wonderfully relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We've just come back from spending a week at the villa and we had a wonderful time. The villa is large and spacious. The kitchen is well equipped and immaculate and the rooms are a good size. We loved relaxing by the pool and enjoyed several bbqs.

Carvoeiro itself, the beaches and restaurants are all within walking distance.

The booking went ahead very smoothly and Dave was always prompt in getting back to us. I would definitely recommend it if you're looking for a luxurious break.

Its a shame we had to come back!

Casa Valhalla 5 star accomodation *****

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at many villas whilst holidaying in Portugal and Spain, including the Balearic and Canary Islands and I can tell you that yours is by far and away the best. Not just because of the space, both inside the villa and outside on the terraces, nor the luxurious quality of the furnishings, but also the fact that almost everything that one could possibly need for a carefree holiday is available. It is so obvious that the villa has been designed to provide 5 star accomodation rather than merely to provide an investment income. A holiday villa that is actually a home as well!

I'm not sure if we mentioned this to Mandy, but Ann and I spent our honeymoon at Carvoeiro 20 years ago this year. We clearly noticed that a great deal of development has taken place since then but in the main, the growth seems to controlled more than some other places that we have stayed at. This, along with the villa, delightful local restaurants and the quiet, peaceful location provided a perfect holiday experience for all of our party, including the four teenage boys!

Would you please convey our sincere thanks to Mandy for the treatments that we all enjoyed so much.

Carvoeiro is a fishing village halfway along the Algarve coast, about 45 minutes from Faro Airport. Over the last 15 years, grown to be a size able holiday resort. However, it has not lost the intrinsic charm of the place, as the development has been sympathetically done, keeping to low-rise buildings in the traditional Algarvian style. This cosmopolitan resort has a wide selection of restaurants and bars, a few night clubs, boutiques, banks, chemist and local facilities.

Other Activities: Go Karting, Motor racing at the new Autrodromo at Portimao

Golf: Golf Information Golf packages and pre bookings can be arranged at our local courses Pinta, Gramacho, Alto and Salgados golf. The Algarve is one of Europe's premier golf areas. There are currently twenty-five courses in the space of 100 miles of coastline, with more under construction. All Algarve courses are within one and a half hours' drive of Faro International Airport. Over the last few years the Portuguese Open has been hosted variously at Penina, Vila Sol and São Lourenzo, all of which may be included in the list of top European championship courses. Warm playing conditions and immaculately manicured fairways and greens are the norm in the Algarve. We can send you a price list of the courses and availability to coincide with your holiday.
