About the property

3 bedroom, two bathroom ocean-front house close to beach and restaurant

A stunning coast house set into the cliff above the pretty town of Carvoeiro, one of four luxuriously converted village houses in a wonderful location with amazing views over the ocean. With great attention to detail and beautiful design, a unique holiday home has been lovingly created, sleek an modern yet comfortable and tangible with a beach house ambience that’s relaxing and inviting. You’re within easy reach of the centre of Carvoeiro and all it’s charming restaurants and bars yet even closer is the access to the almost secret Paraiso Beach and the Mar d’Fora restaurant and bar.

Located just up the road from the centre of Carvoeiro towards Monte Carvoeiro along Rua da Paraiso and very close to Paraiso Beach, from the private parking spot there are steps down to the entrance. The living room is a bright and welcoming space, it has an ultramodern, sleek white kitchen with only the sink and ceramic hob on the peninsula and the built-in ovens on display, everything else is concealed within its white fronted cabinetry.

The rest of the living space is decorated and furnished in charmingly distressed, elegant beach house style; there’s a generous dining table, sitting area with two sofas and a writing bureau all with views of the sea. Open the sliding glass doors to a large terrace, furnished for outdoor dining, relaxing and marvelling at the stunning view, watching the boats making their way along the coast.

From the living room, there’s a wide staircase to the lower floor and the three bedrooms. The master has a king-size bed with twin mattresses, TV, high quality en suite shower room an double doors to the enclosed sun terrace that wraps around the house at this level. There’s also a twin bedroom and another king-size with twin mattresses, both these rooms have doors to the sun terrace and there’s a family shower room.

On the terrace there’s an enticing hammock, several sun recliners, a dining area with barbecue and a large outdoor shower area. Although there’s no swimming pool, guests can use the large communal pool 350 metres away and facilities in Monte Carvoeiro wrist bands are provided for access. Within a few meters is your local restaurant and bar and the access steps down to the stunning Paraiso beach, which is often missed by the vast majority of tourists and tends to be quiet with plenty of space on the golden sands.

As well as the extensive choice of restaurants in Monte Carvoeiro, it’s only a short walk (albeit a bit steep) into the centre of Carvoeiro and a whole other world of choice in this charming family oriented resort. The fantastic Pestana golf courses are close by, as well as the tennis centre and it’s just a short drive into Ferragudo on the west side where most of the water sports are available.

Lovely Property with great views and close to amenities

  • 4 of 5

The villa was lovely, clean and tidy and just as the photos showed it. The location was good as it was close to 2 beaches - one busy beach and the other one more private. Easy downhill walk to bars and restaurants - need to be fit for the uphill walk back.

Would have been nice for a swimming pool nearby, so we could just jump in after the walk back up after lunch however we were aware the villa didn't have one - but the shared swimming pool was another uphill walk. The shared swimming pool was nice as it wasn't busy and sunbeds were always available.

The ladies at Inside Summer were extremely helpful with regards to any questions we had about the area and the villa - on the way back to airport we had left a bag just outside their office and they kindly rang me and waited until we returned - so a big thank you to them.

Overall the villa was lovely and we had a great stay

Super Strandvilla

  • 5 of 5

Die Villa ist super eingerichtet und tiptop gepflegt. Bei der nahen Strandlage braucht man keinen Pool. Bei Problemen helfen die Damen der Häuserverwaltung direkt ggü. gern weiter, super nett!

Ansonsten immer mit Mietwagen, da die Strände in alle Richtungen einfach zu schön sind. Der Strand von Caveiro geht auch, aber Liegenabzocke 25,-€ (2 Liegen und Sonnendach) kostet sonst 13,-€. unbedingt die Grottentour mit dem Boot machen!

Verbessungsvorschlag: Mückenstecker installieren und Mückenschutz an allen Fenstern der Schlafzimmer zu installieren. Und vereinbaren das die Putzdamen alle zwei / drei Tage kommen sonst hat man keine frischen Handtücher. Ein Kaffeevollautomat wäre noch toll.

Ansonsten super empfehlenswert, der Blick von der Terrasse ist das Beste

Carvoeiro is one of the most popular destinations for villa with pool holidays along the Algarve coast. Blessed with more than its fair share of superb beaches and most have stunning backdrops of dramatic cliffs, with the most beautiful golden sand and solitary stone stacks carved by the sea. Carvoeiro's small town centre has a great atmosphere and all the facilities you could need while on holiday, with a wide range of shops, a few market stalls by the fine sandy beach, cafes that spill onto the pavement and a wide range of family friendly restaurants catering to all tastes and budgets. However, the small town charm belies the wealth of amenities and facilities in the area which makes Carvoeiro a wonderful base for a memorable family holiday.

Carvoeiro is a fabulous location to enjoy a family beach holiday. The town beach is right beside the town centre and has all the amenities you could need close by. Travelling east along the coast, the Algor Seco is a popular spot for snorkelling and diving with dramatic cliffs plunging into the sea.

Almanzor beach is in front of the Almanzor hotel with access through the hotel or a narrow footpath that runs down the side of the hotel. A small yet very attractive beach with a cave open to the sea. Facilities are available in the hotel including tennis courts.

The next beach along the Carvoeiro coast is Centiannes, a wonderful stretch of golden sand backed by high cliffs. There's also an excellent bar restaurant beside the sands. Smuggler's beach, also known as Alfanzina, is reached by steps that wind down from the Clube Atlantico estate. The steps pass through a tunnel cut into the rock and onto the magnificent beach below. There's also a striking restaurant here sitting on wooden stilts or you might prefer to take a picnic, either way it's well worth it.

Benagil is the next stop, the minor coastal road drops steeply into the valley and passes right beside the beach. Still used to land the day's catch, you'll see brightly painted boats up on the sand. It also means fresh fish is available at the beach bar and restaurants close by.

Marinha beach is the last of Carvoeiro's beaches heading east, there's a large car park and broad steps down to the sand, stunning cliffs to the rear, rocky columns and a handy beachside restaurant and bar make this a firm favourite with guests.

Sport & Leisure Activities

The 9 hole golf course at Vale do Milho is handily located close to Carvoeiro's town centre. There's a fine club house with bar restaurant that's popular at lunchtimes. The Sesmarias Country Club is a fine recent addition to the Carvoeiro area with two superb golf courses - Gramacho and Pinto - and there's an attractive club house with restaurant and bar.


There are extensive tennis facilities in the Carvoeiro area with coaching available at Rocha Brava and the Carvoeiro Club Tennis Centre.

Water Sports

Carvoeiro's Farragudo beach has a range of watersports, jet skis, windsurfing and pedaloes for hire.

Boat trips

There are several boat trips available in the Carvoeiro area, exploring the fantastic coastline and stopping at exotic beaches. Perhaps the most memorable day out and under sail is aboard Santa Bernada - a replica caravelle, which departs from the old sardine pier in Portimao on weekdays.

Waterslide Parks

A hit with all the family on holiday in Carvoeiro. There are two parks nearby, Aqualand at Alcantarilha (the Big One) or Slide and Splash at Lagoa.
