About Pierre Sacré

We both were from different parts of the world originally, my self from Belgium and my wife from the US, but we found our home away from home in Portugal and connected immediately with the warmth and generosity of the Portuguese people.

Pierre Sacré purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Pierre Sacré chose Mato Serrão

We fell in love with this property almost the same way we did with one another...instantly, we just knew it was 'the one' for us!

What makes this apartment unique

We believe that this property can boast a wonderful mix of resort, family-friendliness and fishing village feel. Carvoeiro Tennis Park offers great value for money and we are happy to share our favorite vacation spot with you!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My friends and I stayed at the Tennis Park over the holidays and couldn't have been more pleased. There were some very nice restaurants that hosted great parties for those celebrating, but the Tennis Park was quiet, yet sunny with pleasant temperatures especially for winter. We took walks into town and to grab a drink, but could also find taxis with ease. The views of the gardens and sea from your front door are so relaxing and beautiful! The roof terrace is a great place to have lunch or a sunset dinner BBQ or just to drink in the views. The inside of the apartment was impecably clean and the decor was very tasteful (especially the artwork). The owners and concierge went out of their way to make our stay pleasurable. We definitely recommend the tennis park and hope to go back.

Wonderful Holiday - Excellent Accomodation. Would Definitely Stay Again

  • 5 of 5

Lovely accommodation- stayed as a family of 4 for one week. Just wish we could have stayed longer.

Plenty of space, very clean, well maintained and all the facilities you require for a fab holiday.

The pool is fab just outside the villa with easy access and it kept the kids amused for hours. Age 10 & 12 able to mess about all day with inflatables and swimming.

We hired a car (a definite must because everything is on a steep hill). On arrival we were met by Ulf who gave us some fab tips on the best beaches and places to go, made sure we had everything we needed and was a brilliant source of local knowledge.

We were able to stay that little bit longer after check out which helped so much for a night flight home and this enabled us to finish our holiday stress free.

Thank you we would definitely consider staying again if we visit the area again.

wonderful holidays

  • 5 of 5

It was a wonderful holiday. Everything was perfect and as expected. We rented a car and it was really worth, seeing all the wonderful beaches and places.

In the tennis club next to the appartment you can have good meal and our children loved the trampolin.

The restaurant has also improved and we are happy to see this littl community improve and grow.

Wonderful holiday in Carvoeiro Tennis Park

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this lovely, quiet and spacious apartment very much! Everything is in good condition and we felt at home at once. Every morning we had breakfast on the terrace facing the beautiful garden and pool. The view from the roof terrace on the Atlantic Ocean is amazing. By car we visited many places and lovely beaches of the Algarve. Thank you Regina and Pierre for the nice communication by e-mail.

Tres bel appartement avec superbe cadre!

  • 5 of 5

Escapade parfaite en arriere saison: soleil, mer, poissons et fruits de mer !

On n'esperait pas se baigner en mer mi-Octobre et se balader en decapotable. Un petit sejour parfait dans un appartment spacieux, propre, decore avec gout et meme equipe avec necessaire de plage. Superette et supermarche a 5mn. Acces a une terrasse de toit privee (bbq en dur) ou on a pu deguster un apero avant de descendre en ville pour un choix considerable de restos (pour tous les gouts et toutes les bourses).

Nous reviendrons pour passer plus de temps afin de profiter de la piscine et de visiter les environs.

Car: recommended

Enjoy all the comforts of home in our quaint and cozy resort village, without the commercialised atmosphere. Nestled on a hill, with breathtaking overlooks, only a 15 minute walk away, deep blue waters and golden sand await you. Several restaurants and bars are within a few minutes walk and the town center with even more bars and restaurant choices, is also within a 30 minute walking distance or 5 minute car ride. The apartment itself is filled with modern conveniences but with touches of Portuguese tile to remind you of the simple Portuguese lifestyle. Don't feel like making the 5min. drive to the beach? No worries! Take in the sea horizon and manicured gardens from the ground floor, marvel at the panoramic sea view from your private roof terrace with built-in BBQ or just take a dip in the pool, only a few footfalls from your door! If you feel sporty, just a 2 minute walk away is the tennis and athletic center. If you prefer golf, the Pestana golf resort is only 2 km away. If getting the spa treatment is more your style, you can be pampered with 5-star quality at the Vale da Lapa Resort & Spa less than a 1km away.
