Fantastic holiday at Casa Carpe Diem

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a fantastic 2 week stay at Casa Carpe Diem in Alporchinhos. The villa is well appointed at the end of a very quiet privately owned terrace. All rooms are very spacious, modern, clean and well equipped – in fact this is the best we have experienced. The air conditioning was very efficient and very much needed due to the excellent weather. The villa is adjacent to a communal pool and even though we holidayed in high season very few residents used it. This meant that most of the time we enjoyed exclusive use of the pool and surrounding gardens. The patio area is south facing and equipped with 4 sunbeds, a large dining table and bbq. The additional benefit of an extendable sun canopy ensured we could eat alfresco at all times.

The villa is conveniently located close to a large supermarket which met all our needs. It is a 5 minute drive / 15 minute walk to the nearest beach which has all the facilities you could need - restaurants, sunbeds and water sports facilities.

We have been extremely pleased with the service we received from Algarvacation and in particular Jeroen who responded to all queries promptly and professionally. Everything has been very smooth, from initial booking to final departure. We would definitely recommend using Algarvacation to arrange hire care for collection at the airport. The prices they obtained were very competitive and the service was second to none. Collecting the car was a totally stress free experience – no standing in queues and the car was ready and waiting, meaning we were quickly on our way to the villa.

In summary – A fantastic holiday using a very professional organisation. We would recommend Algarvacation without hesitation and look forward to returning again soon.

Wunderschöner Familien-Sommerurlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir (2 Erwachsene, 2 Jugendliche) haben unseren 2-wöchigen Urlaub in den Sommerferien im Casa Carpe Diem verbracht. Die Ausstattung des Objektes lässt keine Wünsche offen.

Wir hatten viel Platz, das Objekt ist sehr sauber und geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Insbesondere die große Terrasse mit 4 Sonnenliegen und die unmittelbare Nähe zum Pool waren super. Der Garten ist sehr gepflegt und mit den schönen Olivenbäumen hat man immer ein Schattenplätzchen. Die Anlage ist zentral gelegen. Restaurants und Einkaufsmöglichkeiten sind "um die Ecke" und 3 wunderschöne Strände sind ohne weiteres fußläufig erreichbar.

Mit unserem Leihwagen ließen sich tolle Ausflüge z.B. nach Lagos, Silves, Albufeira oder auch zum Shoppen nach Faro (wir haben dort das Forum Algarve besucht) und natürlich zu den zahlreichen Traumstränden der Algarve machen. Wir können einen Urlaub hier nur empfehlen!
