Colina Branca - Perfect Choice!!

  • 5 of 5

Colina Branca is a small development of townhouses, and a perfect choice for a family holiday.

We stayted in a 2/3 bedroom townhouse which slept 5 people comfortably. The lounge/dining area was furnished very well in Portuguese style and the patio doors opened onto a very spacious sun terrace which included sun loungers and patio furniture. There was a further rooftop sun terrace which was also very spacious and perfect for fantastic views of Carvoeiro. The kitchen was very well equipped even ice packs in the freezer and cool bag to use. The bedrooms were very comfortable each with small private sun terraces. The communal pool area was superb with lots of sun loungers and sun umbrellas. The village/beach is no more than 10 minuets walk from the complex, and you are made very welcome by the locals in all the cafe bars/shops ans restaurants.

We will certainly be returning to Colina Branca .

Thank you

We have been holidaying in Carvoeiro for the past 12 years, off and on. We have stayed in Villa's as well as the Town Houses in Colina Branca. The Colina Branca houses are superb. The size of the house and the sun balcony is just perfect for our needs. It was clean and tidy and provided more than we expected. This year we had 3 generations in our party ranging from 17 to 71 and there was ample space for all including an en-suite bathroom in one of the bedrooms so my Mum had more privacy in the mornings and getting ready to go out at night. The pool is a really good size. Deep at one end and nice and shallow at the other so the pool would suit most people. We never had to get up in the morning to put towels out as there was always sun beds available regardless of the time we got to the pool and all 6 of us got a bed and a sun umbrella if needed.

The whole of Carvoeiro is built on the hillside of what was probably a simple valley many centurys ago. There is no avoiding either steep hills or steps. Colina Branca is no different. You can walk up 'donkey hill' to get to the villas or go past the hill and take the stairs. 95 steps up to our villa! After coming off the beach and having lunch in Smilers it is only 40 steps from the raod to get to the pool which was a good place to stop. I do have to say that the steps did not affect our holiday one bit. Infact it made us all feel we deserved the ice cream after dinner because we had put in a bit of extra effort using the stairs.

We have already booked for next year and just can't wait to get back to the place we feel is our second home.

Lovley holiday!

  • 4 of 5

We have recently returned from a fabulous holiday staying at colina branca townhouse, the townhouse was as described, if not bigger than we imagined it was going to be and had everything we required, though we would have loved air conditioning as it was very hot. Though the bedrooms are downstairs and it is slightly cooler there. It is situated close to shops, beach and restaurants, however it is on a very steep hill and therefore not for anyone with difficulty walking! The pool was never too busy, even in August and was nice and clean. If we return to Carvoeiro, which we hope to do, we would definitely return to colina branca.

Carvoeiro and Colina Branca

  • 5 of 5

Colina Branca is a clean and tidy complex,ideal for all ages.The pool area could do with some Umbrellas.After visiting it for the last 16years we consider it as our 2nd home.

Carvoeiro is centrally situated for all amenities.You are within easy access to Splash Parks,Zoo,Crazy Golf,and Sand Carvings.The only down side to Carvoeiro is that it is very hilly.

Colina Branca - August 2009

  • 5 of 5

The townhouses of Colina Branca are in a great location, a short walk from the town of Carvoeiro but quiet enough for a relaxing holiday.

Carvoeiro itself is a good all round resort town with something for everyone. There are great local beaches within a short drive and the town beach is a short walk from Colina Branca. There's lots to do for all age groups.

The townhouses are really well proportioned with a great layout and view to the sea. Each townhouse has its own private car port immediately next to it. Bedrooms are downstairs, so really cool in the summer. Terrace is large enough for al fresco dining, with an extra roof terrace for more private sunbathing.

There is a good size communal pool which is well equipped with sun loungers and umbrellas.

We have stayed in this complex 3 times now and are never disappointed. Everything was exactly as had been documented, no surprises.

Carvoeiro is a bustling Algarve village with a fantastic array of lively bars, restaurants and shops. The restaurants cater for all tastes, the local Portuguese specialities being fish and seafood dishes.

There are a selection of Algarve beaches close by, some large and busy with toilet and restaurant facilities, some smaller secluded coves, and amazing cliff top walks for those enjoying hiking and rambling. The Monchique mountain, which is the highest point of the Algarve, is just a short drive away, and the historic town of Silves, which was once the capital city of Portugal, with it's ancient castle and museums is also nearby.

For children, there is Slide and Splash water park and Aqualand, both only a 15 minute drive from Carvoeiro, and Zoomarine which is home to dolphins, seals and other marine life. The dolphin show is something spectacular for all the family to see, as well as the high diving show. Other nearby attractions include Carvoeiro tennis club, diving school, riding centre and beauty therapy and massage services.

There are several golf courses within a short driving distance from the townhouses including the SIlves Pestana course, and the famous Amendoeira Golf course which is the largest in Europe, with bowling and fitness centre among it's many facilities. Other nearby golf courses include the Pestana and Gramacho courses at Lagoa, and Morgado set in the Monchique mountain foothills. Slightly further away, but still only a 30 minute drive are courses at Praia da Luz to the West, and the championship course at Vilamoura to the East.

Discounted green fees and special packages are available on many of the courses.
