About the Owner
I purchased my first villa in the Algarve in 1996/1997. After having seen dozens of different villas along the Algarvian coast up to Burgau, west of Lagos, I fell in love with the town of Carvoeiro and its "small seaside town" atmosphere and charm. The town centre is small but it has everything to offer: shops, banks, pharmacy, numerous restaurants and plenty of bars and cafes and of course sandy beaches.
I moved to live permanently in the Algarve in 2000 leaving behind a busy career in the City in London and I set up a villa management business.
I look forward to welcoming you in the villa.
Best regards Sam Carr

Great location, exceptionally clean and well maintained, large outdoor area with plenty of shade, a huge choice of restaurants only a few minutes walk away. Would I recommend this villa? - Absolutely!!
Our second visit to Casa Cassandra - everything as we remembered. As before, perfectly maintained and a home from home. An upgraded ensuite and new flooring throughout just added to our experience.
The location could not be better. All facilities, restaurants and beach within easy walking distance (no need for a car) ; the most difficult thing was dragging our children away from the pool!!
We are already looking forward to a return visit. Thanks again Sam.
Lovely villa in a great location
First time in Portugal and our stay in this villa was lovely, villa has all that you could possibly need to enjoy your stay. Arriving on a late flight Sam had arranged for basics bread, milk and ham etc to be in the villa. Villa is in an amazing location at the top of restaurant hill and feels very secure. Very clean and looked after by pool guy etc. Only negative for me was the travel cot provided was very uncomfortable so if goin again I would bring my own
I would not hesitate in recommending this villa to anyone. It is so well equipped and so close to Carvoeiros many shops and restaurants. For the first time ever we didn't hire a car and we didn't miss it a bit! We had the most relaxing two weeks just lounging by the pool. Even though the villa is close to shops/restaurants/roads it is still very private and tranquil. The villa itself is very charming, I don't think the pictures do it full justice. Hope very much to return.
Great holiday with the family
Thank you Sam we had a brilliant time at your villa, it was very well equipped and very clean and ideally situated for walking to beach and restaurants. Security was good, all windows and doors had shutters and alarmed when we left the villa. This was important to us as we had our grandson with us and everything was child friendly. We would not hesitate to recommend this property

'STUNNING VILLA, HOME FROM HOME'
After another stay at my No.1 favourite villa in Carvoeiro, I thought it was about time I let everyone else know! Location superb could not be better, we always hire a car but it is not really necessary as it did not leave the drive till time to depart, but was there if we needed it on the driveway that would fit 3 small cars in required. The facilities in the villa are top class with all needs catered for. The layout of Cassandra is perfect for families or up to 3 couples, the bathroom which is pictured has now been updated to include a walk in shower, ideal for anyone with mobility problems. Super pool without lovely bbq area and outside eating areas, comfy sunbeds to make the most of the Algarve sunshine. Another bonus is not having to pack beach towels as these are provided (more room for clothes:-) The 1st villa we stayed at more than 10 years ago we had to buy wine glasses as not provided, absolutely not an issue here, Sam has covered everything and maintained Cassandra to a very high standard. I would recommend Cassandra (and have) to anyone looking for a perfect holiday to the Algarve, Carvoeiro is the perfect resort, packed with many top class restaurants to cater for all tastes. - Thankyou Carrs Villas
