Everything Catered For in this Excellent Villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this Villa in late September 2016, 4 adults and baby.

A beautiful secluded Villa, located in a quiet area, 20 minutes stroll or 5 minute drive to Carvoeiro town center.

All rooms are very spacious, ensuite, and spotlessly clean. The Villa is very well equipped with all mod cons, and is very well maintained throughout. The facilities are exactly as listed on the website.

Beautifully secluded pool with sheltered suntrap terrace / deck area, with pool / beach towels provided also.

Nice restaurants / bars located close to the Villa also, 10 minute walk.

Very secluded entrance to the property with large parking area at front.

Communications with the Owners was uncomplicated and very efficient from start to finish.

Would definitely recommend this Villa, and if visiting this area of Portugal again would want to stay at this particular Villa.

The perfect home from home!

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted that we chose to stay in this villa, it was the perfect location for a family holiday. The villa itself was immaculately clean and maintained. the rooms are all spacious, and it has a real homely feel. The area is private enough to be able to relax around the pool in peace, yet close enough to the beaches should you prefer that. There are a few restaurants/bars within walking distance, and the main town was only a 15 minute walk or less than 5 mins by car or taxi, a taxi only costing around €4. The pool area is a great suntrap, and there is a gate to secure access to it if you had any toddlers, as we did, this gave great peace of mind. The communication from the owners leading up to our trip was great and very prompt, and the management company were also great when we had a couple of queries. I would highly recommend this property.

Fabulous !

  • 5 of 5

We stay in Carvoerio most years but always in a different villa, this one is right up there as one of the best!

Quiet location, lovely pool and terrace area and the inside is comfortable and very well maintained. The bedrooms are all large and the beds very comfortable. We couldn't fault it.

The communication with the owners and the manager was great in the lead up to our holiday.

We don't hire a car on holiday and it was a 25/30 min stroll into town although there are restaurants nearer.

We would definately recommend this villa.

Fabulous villa, great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this wonderful villa in May 2016. It was perfect, spotlessly clean and really spacious (we had 4 adults and 2 children).

The gate which can be put across the patio to block access to the pool was really useful with the children roaming around before we were all out on the poolside with them.

The location was great, you can walk (20/25 mins) to the beach and 10 mins to a small centre of restaurants and really close (5 min drive) to a great water park.

The villa is all on one level so would be great for anyone with walking difficulties, and not having to worry about children and lots of stairs.

All in all a great holiday and would definitely come back again.

Great villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 2 weeks in June 2016 and had a great time. It's the first time that we have stayed up on this side of Carvoiero and we found several excellent restaurants within easy walking distance that we hadn't got to before (L'orange, Villa Nova, Oregano) and there's a decent pizzeria just down by the Paradiso resort as well. The walk down to town is easy (20-30 minutes depending on your pace). We enjoyed the walk back up but a taxi ride back from town is about 4 euros.

The villa itself has everything you need - cooker, coffee maker, Kettle, washing machine, several hairdyers. Pool towels are included. There's a superb satellite system that lets you watch BBC and ITV, with a Sky receiver in the master bedroom (Sky news and not much else on that) with a CD player, DVD player etc. Loads of books to read.

Beds are very comfortable.

The outside terrace is one of the best I've seen, with plenty of shade for those who want it, and all day sun around the pool for those who don't. The pool is bigger than it looks in the picture (I would reckon about 10m). Huge gardens and loads of parking space, easy to turn the car around.

Very secluded, no one overlooking the pool area.

The "mifi" broadband works although it meters by the hour rather than by megabite of download, so make sure you turn it off when not using! This can actually be a bit of a problem as it seemed to have a life of it own, and kept switching itself back on. In the end we discovered press until goes off, wait for it to come back on, press 3s, wait while nothing seems to happen, then it goes off properly. It is easy to top up in the post office in Carvoiero (don't expect quick service!).

Would definitely go there again.

Lovely Villa great location

  • 5 of 5

Villa was absolutely lovely. We had 2 children and a 92 year old!! And everyone had a good time. Only problem was getting the kids out of the pool. Highly recommended and well organized from start of booking to end of holiday.
