About Philip

I purchased Villa Caesarea in 2002 after spending several years visiting Portugal looking for a villa like this one. We use the villa as a family several times a year and take care of it just as anyone would with their own home, so everything works’ and its appearance is always kept clean and tidy.

When we are not using it ourselves, we rent out Villa Caesarea for a few weeks each year. Over the last 12 years, we have had guests staying at our villa from all over Europe and now, each year we have at least one or two returning customers.

Our local management company is the Carvoeiro Clube and they provide all the services to keep our villa in great condition. They are the largest and most professional professional property management company in the Algarve.

Philip purchased this villa in 2002

Why Philip chose Mato Serrão

I bought a villa in Carvoeiro because it is far enough away from Faro (and the over development that has taken place) but close enough to avoid lengthy airport transfers. Planning constraints in the local area restrict buildings to 2 stories so there are no high rise developments to spoil our views. These rules for older villas had the effect of providing spacious villas on large plots of land of which Villa Caesarea is a typical example.

Carvoeiro was originally a fishing village; it has all of the facilities required for an enjoyable family holiday. These vary from superb sandy beaches to water parks, animal parks, golf courses, tennis clubs and many historical sights and towns. Plenty of good restaurants and shopping facilities fill to in the gaps!

What makes this villa unique

The key benefits for us of Villa Caesarea are:

- Spacious enough so that even with 7 people, everybody has plenty of space.

- Close enough to Carvoeiro so that we can walk for a night or shopping, but far enough from the village so that we don't have any traffic noise or through traffic (villa is in a cul-de-sac).

- A private pool and patio area that we can spend all day relaxing on and a dining area covered in 'dapple' shade for eating out doors.

- Plenty of holiday facilities (see above) for entertaining children in the local area.

- Great beaches locally but also try a day trip to some west coast beaches with their cool winds.

- Our own furnishings so its as comfortable as we can make it, not just a villa with furniture.

Beautiful Villa..well maintained...lovely holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely relaxing holiday in your beautiful villa which is equipped with everything and more! A very quiet location and a very private pool area....also loved the sun terrace with the lovely views! We were able to experience the many restaurants in the town which were just delightful. So many places to eat out all within easy walking distance.

We will certainly return thank you very much.

Fabulous family villa

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from 2 weeks at this beautiful villa. The villa is fully equipped with all the home comforts you could think of. The villa is spacious and extremely well kept to a high standard. The BBQ and patio area are ideal for lazy evening BBQ's. The villa has a good location, 15 minutes walk from Carverio, set in a quiet cul de sac. We would highly recommend this villa and look forward to returning.

Just back from this lovely villa and it certainly lived up to our expectations. Very spacious inside and out. Pool and patio areas were lovely. In a great area with only a 10-15 minute walk to some great restaurants and pubs. We will hopefully return again

Villa in carveiro

  • 5 of 5

We loved this villa and it was more spacious than we had thought. The resort is a nice walk downhill and takes about 15 minutes. We went in July and paid for air con but didnt need it, you don't get a refund if you don't use it. We got a private transfer from the airport and the driver stopped at a supermarket about 5 mins drive from villa. If you do this buy lots as the shop across from the villa is expensive and buy BBQ meat etc as good outdoor BBQ. The only thing missing was maybe my kids would have liked an outdoor table tennis table but that is being very picky. Have recommended this villa to 2 separate friends who have booked for 2015 already.

Carvoeiro Villa Ceaserea

Fastastic time

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed two weeks in this lovely villa.

The villa is very spacious (Portugese style) and the pool is brand new and magnificant ! We enjoyed the quieteness.

From early morning till late in the evening you can enjoy the sun on the terrace, but if it is too warm also shady places are available.

We were happy with the availability of the insect screens everywhere in the house.

The information and service from the landlord and the reception was really very good.

In short: we have had a fantastic time in this villa!
