Carvoeiro must be the Algarve's favourite location for family villa with pool holidays, once you've found the right resort, how do you chose the right villa? Anyone who knows Carvoeiro knows the brilliant villas built by Jorge de Lagos, he knew how to get the best holiday property out of every plot and the communities he created were within walking distance of the beach and local facilities.
Spacious and well proportioned rooms that flow logically, master bedroom with en suite bathroomand two guest rooms, almost every room opens onto the enclosed and secluded pool terrace, with a spot for shaded outdoor dining by the pool or on the roof terrace where you can enjoy views to the sea, there's an enclosed internal courtyard with second barbecue and an impressive drive that makes you feel like you've arrived.
Within a few minutes stroll of the villa is the Vale do Milho golf club, it's a challenging 9-hole course with fabulous views especially from the clubhouse, also a favourite with non-golfers for good value lunches and drinks.
Just down the hill (and also within walking distance) is the stunning Centianes beach, its swathe of golden sand backed by golden cliffs and there's a good beach restaurant there too. Just beyond is the Rocha Brava resort, it has a cafe, a family restaurant and supermarket plus a good tennis centre with courts for hire and coaching, if you need it. Whilst it's pool or beach during the day, in the evening everyone enjoys a walk to try a new restaurant or an old favourite, many enjoy the walk into town for a wider choice of amenities and catch the road train back up the hill or a taxi.
The villa has a large master suite with king-size bed, patio doors to the pool terrace and bathroom with bath and shower stall. Two generous twin bedrooms, one with doors to the pool terrace and a family bathroom with bath and shower stall. Guest toilet. Well equipped fitted kitchen with access to the dining area and the comfortable lounge with TV, bar and patio doors to an outdoor dining area, shaded by a retractable awning. There's also an inner courtyard with a built-in dining table with a second barbecue and steps up to the roof terrace. Externally the villa is also very good, the pool sits in an enclosed and secluded terrace with lots of room for sun loungers, there's a pool shower and a large built-in barbecue with a choice of places to eat. The enclosed courtyard with its own barbecue is ideal for open-air dining in the cooler months and steps lead up to a good roof terrace, enjoy your sundowners up there with views to the sea over the pretty rooftops.
