Casa Tranquila was completed in 2012 in a prime location with wonderful vistas across the valley and towards the sea. The interior is a clever combination of traditional décor with modern functionality and comfort even for the most discerning traveller. The architectural use of shapes generates light and space and captures the ambiance of this delightful southern climate. The property has been built high within the plot to provide the maximum views, coupled with privacy and peace. There is a large drive way and easy steps to take you to the hand made wooden door. You enter the property and immediately note the particularly wide oak and steel floating staircase which takes you up to the accommodation. The property has cleverly been split into two wings. One where you will find the bedroom suites and the other the social areas. Also off the airy corridor is a cloakroom.The sitting room over looks the terrace and pool area with views to the valley and sea. There is a circular free standing contemporary log burner for winter months. High quality porcelain floor tiles have been used throughout to create a luxurious feel both inside and out on the terraces. There are 2 leather sofas - one with a high spec full size sofa bed - dining table/6 chairs. There is a breakfast bar with 4 stools. You will also find a 50” LCD TV with IPTV installed and a DVD player/DVDfilms/internet available. There is air conditioning/heating installed which can be utilised at the flick of the remote control. There is a BOSE iPod docking station/speakers, even binoculars for viewing the landscapes all around. The pool (heatable)is built into the raised terrace area that can be entered from the sitting room or the open plan kitchen corridor. Outside you will find tables, chairs, 6 sun loungers, parasols and a gas BBQ for your enjoyment. A terrace built over the drive, accessed by the pool, has two new 3 seater sofas and coffee table. (This terrace also doubles to provide a shaded area over the drive, much needed in summer when you park up your car). Inside the property is another flight of stairs that takes you to a private bedroom suite. Please note this area is locked off and not available to rent. This is never in occupation whilst rental guests are in the villa. The guest bedrooms can either be accessed by using the bridge which joins the raised pool terrace to the large bedroom terrace or of course, inside the villa. There is a further table, sofa, arm chairs and stools for 7. There are two bedroom suites – one with a king size bed, dressing table/mirror and 32" LCD TV with UK TV. There is a spacious bathroom with twin sinks, large walk in shower and WC. On entry to the master suite you will find a large section of wardrobes one housing a digital safe. In the twin bedroom there is a large wardrobe, 32" LCD TV with UK TV, dressing table/mirror. The twin ensuite has a large walk in shower, bidet, WC and sink. Both bathrooms have large (heated) curved chrome towel radiators. The fixtures in the bathrooms are a very high standard and even have a Braun toothbrush charger for your use. The twin room, like the master has solid oak furniture and high quality mattresses with Egyptian cotton linen as well as Egyptian cotton towels and pool towels. Both bedrooms have large patio doors. On the landing by the book case is a 2 seater rattan style sofa. Overall, this property is ideal in location for those not looking to rely on a car and is stunning in design and furnishings. If you have toddlers likely to climb around the walls of the pool terrace, this property may be a safety risk due to its raised terraces. We have 51 ‘5 star’ reviews as of end of 2018 which you can find on TripAdvisor - search Casa Tranquila, Carvoeiro, reviews.
Pool heating is available 20 February through to November. Some previous guests have recommended that heating the pool is beneficial for those who like warmer pools as even in the summer months the water can feel cold to some. It would also make the pool more comfortable during the latter part of the day when the pool becomes shady, however for us we personally would not opt for heating July or August.
