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 area

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!

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.

Excellent stay in Carvoeiro

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Graca. We stayed for 5 nights but it simply wasn't long enough! The house is beautiful, very clean and finished to a high standard. I stayed here with my mum and brother and we had plenty of room to move around and not get in each other's way! The balcony is lovely and spacious and we enjoyed lunches overlooking the pool. The roof terrace is great with comfortable sun beds and fabulous views over the town and sea. It is just a short walk into the village which has a great choice of restaurants and bars.and also a lovely beach.

We will definitely be back here as we thoroughly enjoyed but it looks like we will have to be quick as it is already booking up fast for 2013!

Casa Graca Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time we have had the pleasure of staying at Casa Graca. Reserving and booking our stays both times have been made easy due to the helpfulness of the owner.

Choosing to stay here was made easy due to the accurate description of the property and it's location. There is everything which could possibly be needed within the house (even for a 2 year old!) and plenty to do outside.

The complex is maintained to a high standard and the house itself is kept in an immaculate state. It is clean, tidy, has everything you could possibly need and set in a wonderful position within the complex overlooking the swimming pools. It really is a home from home.

The local town is beautiful along with the beach, which when we were there wasn't particlarly busy. The restaurants are all very child friendly and serve a variety of foods so you could always find something to eat. We particularly liked the Tapas Bar.

The hill back up to the house might be a challenge for the extremely unfit or elderly but taken at a slow pace it is quite manageable.

We stayed for 2 weeks without a car and found enough to do without the need for one.

Overall, i would recommend staying here to anyone and we have already booked for next year.

Holiday in Carvoeiro

  • 5 of 5

This property was exactly as promised and was a lovely place to stay for our fortnight holiday with everything we would need provided. Our 3 yr old twin girls loved it, especially the pools, and as it was October and out of high season we more or less had them to ourselves. The walk back from town was not as bad as I anticipated and took less than 10 minutes (although a bit more difficult if pushing a pushchair!). The town itself is relatively small but has an abundance of restaurants and bars too choose from. We found the best restaurant was Ele and Ela and went here twice during our stay, The beach which is right in the town is lovely and sandy but I can imagine in high season it would get very busy, although there are many other beaches within 10 minutes of Carvoeiro. Slide and Splash is a great day out with slides for young and old and Aquamarine near Albufeira is also worth a visit. I would definately recommend this property to friends and family and would also be happy to return if I visited the Algarve again.

Perfect vacation place.

  • 5 of 5

We searched a long time for a right place for our vacation in Portugal. Casa Graca turn out to be the perfect fit for our family.

House and it surroundings has all you need to have a satisfied time off. Close to all Algavre attractions; beaches restaurants, golf, shops, water parks and more.

Thanks for all the toys for our kid it was wonderful to have it all on the beach.

Definitely would recommend this villa to anyone interesting in discovering South Portugal.

We will try to be back soon again.
