About the property

Conveniently Located Only 15 Mins Walk To The Village Of Carvoeiro

This superb villa is a mere 15 mins walk into the village of Carvoeiro. It has 4 bedrooms (2 en-suite) and is fully air conditioned. Secure for children, with gates/patio doors guarding pool access, the villa has every ingredient for a fun packed family holiday. Entrance is via the front gates where there is off-road parking for up to 3 cars. On the lower floor there is the huge lounge and dining area, kitchen with utility room off, 3 bedrooms (1 en-suite), and cloakroom. A staircase leads up to the master bedroom (en-suite) and adjoining private balcony from which the sea views are breathtaking.

From the lounge there is a large conservatory type enclosure which gives access to the swimming pool terrace. The pool has gentle entry steps at the shallow end and has underwater lighting for that superb ambience when BBQ'ing in the evenings. Permanent seating and tables are located around the pool, as are 8 x sunbeds (and parasols) supplied for our guests' relaxation. A purpose built BBQ area is located next to the pool terrace.

The villa is air conditioned throughout and there are mosquito screens at all windows so they can be left open if required.

Exceptional! 5/5 -
(13 traveller reviews)


Outstanding and definitely want to go back.

  • 5 of 5

This was such a great rental. We were a group of four on a golfing trip and the location and quality of the villa was just perfect. The villa had the best equipped kitchen I have seen in a rental property and the pictures do justice to how delightful the villa is. Our contacts on the ground could not have been more helpful and we definitely hope to pay a return visit.

A beautiful villa in a fabulous location !

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with the villa from the start, we were travelling with 2 families and the layout was perfect for this, enabling privacy with 4 bedrooms, 2 en suite! but ample communal space too! The kitchen is great and has everything you need, and more! There is loads of private parking and it's very secure with gates at the front and gates around the pool which is great if travelling with children. The upstairs master bedroom is amazing with its own staircase, private balcony with great views and en suite! The lounge/diner is huge with a lovely comfy sofa and TV and the pool area is beautiful, family friendly AND heated pool if needed! It's in a great location, not far from the airport, just out of the centre so lovely and quiet but an easy 10min walk to beautiful carvoeiro centre with its great beach, loads of restaurants and bars and a lovely square with music in the evening. A fantastic villa, we will be back!

Beautiful villa with everything you need 5*

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 7 nights (family of 4) and what a beautiful villa, the heated pool is amazing my children never wanted to get out. The beach is only a short 15 minutes walk away and once there you will find a great selection of shops, restaurants and bars. We could not have asked for anything more, we have already booked again for next year.

Great holiday in a beautiful Villa!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous holiday in the beautiful Villa Sousa!

We travelled as two families with small children, the villa is really luxurious and had everything we could possibly need - the children particularly loved the fab heated pool.

It's a pleasant 10 minute walk into the town of Carveiro which has numerous bars and restaurants and the beautiful beach. The main square in the town always had entertainment and was really safe for the children.

Thank you for a great stay, we will definitely return!

A lovely family villa!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely place to have a family holiday. We stayed here for an easter break and had a very peaceful and relaxing time lounging outside and swimming in the (heated) pool, chilling out in the evenings and cooking lovely meals in the very well stocked kitchen. The place was immaculately maintained, very very comfortable beds (our 2 year old slept in for 2 hours longer than at home) and modern bathrooms. It's just a short walk into Carvoeiro which is an ideal holiday town with very nice beach, coffee shops and some nice little restaurants for lunch or dinner overlooking the sea.

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week her in September and can highly recommend it.

Ideally located just a short walk from the abundance of fantastic restaurants and bars in Carvoeiro the villa was immaculately clean, and tastefully decorated.

The barbeque area is ideal for an evening of chilling out at the villa, and the local Intermache sells some great prepared barbeque food.

The pool was lovely and warm which our 1 year daughter loved, and you won’t have to fight for sun loungers !!

John the villa manager was friendly and informative, and promptly resolved a minor issue we had with our return flights.

We fully intend on booking for next year and taking more friends and family !
