About Mark McGuire

We are a UK based family who have been holidaying in the Algarve since the late 1980's. My parents bought a property near to the Rocha Brava resort around 2000 and following the arrival of Grandchildren we purchased a second property at Colina Verde in central Carvoeiro. We live in Stockport, Cheshire and visit our property two to three times a year. We have two children under the age of 10 and combine our free time between caravanning in the Uk and escaping to the sun when we can! The property is managed by our agent Truus who has been with us for the last seven years.

Mark McGuire purchased this house in 2006

Why Mark McGuire chose Carvoeiro

The property is in a fantastic location as all amenities are within a very short walking distance yet being situated at the top of the village means that the position is very peaceful. There are a small number of properties in the complex and the pool is shared by 18 owners, it is rarely crowded, in fact often two or three families only around the pool. The fact that the property is a townhouse as opposed to an apartment is great as you have three levels to the property, with the roof terrace at the top being a secluded spot for sun bathing, or drying washing!, with a sea view.

Carvoeiro is a very family friendly resort and offers a great choice of restaurants / ice cream shops, shops offering the usual beach gear to decent jewellers. The town beach is very clean with boat trips available to the local caves. Within 15 minutes drive there are a number of beaches that can be accessed including Benagil, Marina and Centeanes. Portimao is 20 minutes by car and Lagos abount 30. Silves is a great place to visit, approx 15 minutes inland.

Local attractions are Slide and Splash waterpark (10 minutes), Zoomarine (25 minutes), but in all honesty you don't really need to go anywhere!

There is a local market in Carvoeiro which is open 6 days selling fresh fish, meat and vegetables / fruit. Most guests use the market and then BBQ on the terrace over looking the pool. There are not many better ways to spend an evening, the terrace at the back sees the sun right through to the end of the day.

What makes this house unique

I would suggest that this quality of accommodation within short walking distance of the village centre is very difficult to find. We have been lucky to have dealt with regular repeat visitors to the property and our most frequent guest are now on their 7th visit!

Excellent quality. Clean. Good facilities.

  • 5 of 5

The property exceeded expectations. The shared pool was lovely. And having two balconies and a sun terrace on the roof was great. It was just 10 minutes (with child in tow) to the beach. Although the property is on a hill it was fine walking back up and helped somewhat to work off all the lovely food and ice creams we ate! We had a lovely time and would highly recommend staying here. Mike and Emma the property managers were very helpful and friendly and had lots of good tips and recommendations.

Fantastic Christmas break

  • 5 of 5

Just spent 5 wonderful nights at Casa Graca. The property has everything you could wish for and only a few minutes walk into Carvoeiro but a couple of minutes longer coming back up the hill! The weather was blue skies and sunny throughout, mid to late 60's. A bit chilly early morning and evening when a fleece was needed but during middle of day short sleeves were in order. A nice relaxing stay away from the madness back home in the UK. We will be back for longer next Christmas. Also a big thank you for Mike and Emma for meeting us at the property and arranging a much cheaper return transfer with Yellowfish transfers to Faro. Thank you Mark

An excellent townhouse in a great location

  • 5 of 5

A very well equiped townhouse in a great location. We stayed here for 10 days August 2013. Plenty of restuarants / bars in the town centre which is only 5/10 minutes walk away. Pool is great and on your door step. Carvoerio was safe for our two teenagers to wander around by themselves. Plenty of activities near by e.g. go carting, quality waterpark, boats etc. Very helpful agent who popped in shortly after we arrived to check all was ok. Highly recommended.
