Lovely Villa

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely villa and we would very much recommend. Owners more than helpful and respond to any query quickly. A very proficient housekeeper, Celeste, who does a wonderful job keeping everything clean and tidy every morning (she is very friendly, but discreet whilst working and doesn't interfere with your holiday). Celeste doesn't speak English so it's a giggle trying to have a conversation or ask for something sometimes. ... Google Translate came in really handy!).

The villa is about a 25 minute stroll to the centre of Carvoiero, mostly downhill on the way, but a few steep hills on the way back and no pavements, but there is street lighting. This wasn't a major issue though as taxis from the centre were only €5 and always available.

The garden is beautiful. We did have a bit of an issue with many gardeners arriving unannounced and using noisy machinery for hours, but I guess they have to do it sometime to keep the grounds looking so good, but it would be better to be advised when a whole afternoon's peace & relaxation would be interrupted (the owner's weren't aware of this and were annoyed on our behalf).

The pool was large and a nice temperature, with roman steps for easy access. The sunbeds had nice thick mattresses so very comfy.

Bedrooms are all downstairs, nicely appointed and spotless. On the first floor there's a beautiful lounge, which, being summer, we didn't utilise, but can imagine in the Winter months would be very comfy with beautiful distant sea views. The large balcony on the first floor was enjoyed a lot for breakfast and lunches and importantly there was always shade available. There is also a lovely BBQ area on the ground floor which again benefits from shade.

I thought it didn't have an outside toilet or shower, it was only after a few days we realised it was on the side of the villa!

Lots of books to borrow in the cupboard in the dining area.

The only constructive feedback I can think of is :

1. Another couple of umbrellas around the pool with heavier bases as we had to chase them around the garden on occasions.

2. A list of dates/times when gardeners/pool cleaners would be arriving, purely so you could organise your day's activities around this necessary maintenance.

We've no doubt you'll have an extremely enjoyable holiday at Casa na Colina.

Reserve early for this wonderful holiday home!

  • 5 of 5

Husband, daughter, grandson and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa na Colina, in Carvoiera. The heated pool was the main attraction for our 7 year old grandson, while we appreciated the gorgeous views of the sea and the proximity to the lovely town of Carvoiero some of the finest beaches in Europe. I had constant contact with the owners, who we found to be very kind and extremely helpful. We wanted to take the housekeeper, Celeste, home with us, as she is excellent. We hope to stay at Casa na Colina again, soon, but as we learned this year, one needs the book early, because the word is out that this is a great place to stay.

Wunderschöne große Villa

  • 5 of 5

Eine sehr gepflegte, große Villa mit viel Platz, großem Garten und einen wunderschönen großen Pool. Viel Platz für Kinder zum austoben. Jedes Schlafzimmer hat eigenes Badezimmer. Wir waren insgesamt 8 Leute und haben uns gegenseitig nicht gestört. Ein schöner Ausblick von der Terrasse oben. Kann man entspannt sitzen und Sonnenuntergang genießen. Küche gut ausgestattet. Alles nötige, wie Waschpulver, Tabs etc. vorhanden. Unter der Woche kommt Haushaltshilfe und räumt auf, wechselt die Handtücher, macht Betten... Man kann entspannt den Urlaub genießen.

A piece of paradise on the Algarve

  • 5 of 5

We had glorious 10 day stay in this fabulous villa. The place was kept spotless by a delightful maid. She was cheerful and friendly. Luxurious fabrics have been used in all the living areas including the bedrooms. The hall with it's chandelier and winding marble stairs puts you in mind of South Fork and Dallas. No attention to detail has been overlooked with a well stocked kitchen with all the gadgets you could need, beautiful pictures and pottery from Porches pottery about 5 miles away.

We hope to return soon

Peace, Pool and Plenty of Room

  • 5 of 5

My first trip to Portugal and the bar has been set high. Casa na Colina is the perfect place for peace, relaxation and proximity to the sea - and for ice-cream! The villa is of a very high standard: clean, uncluttered and lots of space so that you don't have to trip over your fellow holiday-makers. The bedrooms (four of them) all have their own en-suite and are extremely comfortable. All of this is looked after by Celeste, the housekeeper and a real treasure, who made a lazy time even lazier and kept the whole place spick and span.

The all-essential and good-sized pool beckoned almost on an hourly basis (we were very lucky with the weather at this time of year) offering an interlude from reading or dozing in the sunshine.

The villa is 10-15 minute walk from good restaurants and 20 minutes or so from the beach at Carvoeiro (but longer to walk home given the hill, my age and the ice-creams). Further afield there is lots to explore which is what I shall try and do more of next time. That and the other flavours of ice-cream I missed out on this trip.

Nearest Airport
80 Kilometres
Nearest Restaurant
250 Metres
Casa Branca
Nearest Beach
600 Metres
Car: recommended


There is one little, sandy beach between our house and Carvoeiro, another in the village, and lots of other lovely, sandy beaches within 10 to 15 minutes by car.


From Faro airport it takes about 50 minutes to drive to our house - mostly along the new motorway. Car hire is recommended. Lisbon and Seville are each about three hours drive.


Carvoeiro village is about 800m away with its beach, little shops and many restaurants. Lagoa, 5 km inland, has a daily, indoor fresh food market. There is a large Intermarche supermarket on the way there.

Further Details:

Nearby facilities include water parks, sailing and boat trips. Ancient Silves is well worth a sight seeing visit. A trip to the hills round Monchique makes a pleasant outing. Cape St Vincent with its massive cliffs is the south west corner of Europe is less than an hour by car and on the way the attractive town of Lagos should not be missed.
