Beyond Expectations

  • 5 of 5

We Stayed in Villa Placido with our eldest daughter and fiance. The villa was immaculate and very tastefully furnished. The layout was excellent if sharing as the master bedroom is one end and the other rooms at the far end, so all have their own space . We have rented villas all over Europe and this certainly rated one of the best. The villa has electric gates and set in gardens which are well kept and a joy, the pool being heated was a welcome luxury. With electric gates the villa is completely private. It is well appointed and it makes a welcome change to have a wonderfully comfortable bed. The owners were very helpful and there was a friendly and helpful management co on hand if needed. The position was quiet but within a 5 min drive of town where there were an abundance of good restaurants. We loved our stay at Villa Placido , a real home from home and would certainly love to stay here for a much longer period. I would highly recommend this villa to anyone looking to book.. Dont hesitate.

We have been holidaying in Carvoeiro since 1994, in a wide assortment, and standard of villas. Villa Placido is as good as it gets! Its beautifully furnished, air conditioned, has wonderful gardens, the pool is heated, and because it has electric front gates the whole place feels secure and secluded. Carvoeiro, Ferragudo, Slide and Splash water park, and the fabulous beach at Canieras are just 5 minutes drive away, and Portimao only 10 minutes.

I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending this villa to anyone visiting the Carvoeiro area. If your searching through endless web sites for the perfect spot, you've just found it. Don't miss out.

Fantastic villa for a relaxing family holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our family would highly recommend this villa. It's very privately located, with fantastic facilities. As we have two young children, it's important to us to have private grounds to keep them safe, but also with enough room to run around and play and Villa Placido definitely offers this. The children had a wonderful time.

The owners were very responsive and friendly and gave us all the necessary information prior to our arrival.

The villa is located very close to some spectacular beaches, but you need to have a car.

We came across a fantastic Brazilian restaurant just 10 minutes walk from the villa which we'd definitely recommend. Carvoeiro offers some wonderful seafood restaurants too and children are very much welcome everywhere.

Whilst we have a young family, we'd recommend Villa Placido to anyone wishing to get away from it all to a very well maintained and luxurious property!

Beautiful villa with marvelous garden and pool

  • 5 of 5

The description was very accurate. Everything was clean and maid and gardener kept it well maintained during the whole stay. When arriving everything we needed for our first breakfast was in the refridgerator. We surely would recommend this property to our friends.

A tennis center was very close (5 minutes by feet) and we used it often, and we also liked jogging to the cliffs (10 to 15 minutes from the villa to the cliffs).

Email contact to the owner was very nice and friendly.

The villa is situated in an exclusive residential area adjacent to the tennis club, which has 13 tennis courts, tennis coaches, beautician, hairdresser, gymnasium, aerobics, fitness classes etc. It is on the outskirts of the seaside resort of Carvoeiro. Carvoeiro itself is an old fishing village which has expanded sympathetically to accommodate tourism. There is no high rise developments here. There are many bars and restaurants and some night-life for the young at heart. The village centre is a 20 minute walk from the villa or a 5 minute drive. Taxis are many and cost approximately 5 euros. The superb Pestana golf courses are 5 minutes away. There are several fantastic beaches within minutes drive and all have beach bar restaurants serving excellent seafood etc. For the youngsters there is a water park again 5 minutes or so away.
