Guestbook comments from the owner

As we have over the years guests that have been coming back every year for over 15 years their comments are:

1) The place feels like home away from home

2) We feel comfortable and well looked after

3) It is so relaxed to be able to have a meal and a drink and be able to walk back again, instead of having to drive.

4) Owners are living nearby and are able to assist whenever needed.

Beautiful Villa with stunning pool

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late evening and was met by Robert who was wonderful and made us feel very welcome. After a quick tour of the villa we walked down into the town centre, about a 10 minute walk to see what was happening in the square. Carvoeiro is a beautiful old fishing town with a beautiful beach and a number of small bars and restaurants, perfect for couples and families.

The villa is very comfortable and spacious with lovely views and although it is only a short walk to town it is very peaceful and quiet. We loved all the outside space especially the large pool.

Thank you Alice and Robert for our stay in your beautiful Villa.

We'll be back !!!!

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived we met Alice who was wonderful and made us feel welcome, relaxed and advised us on local attractions. We loved the villa from the first moment and felt at home instantly but we were blown away by the view as we walked down into the town centre (10 mins slow walk away). Carvoeiro is a beautiful old fishing town that now has hundreds of small bars and restaurants with friendly locals and perfect english spoken almost everywhere and is perfect for couples and families. The nearest shop is 2 mins walk away and the nearest bars/restaurants 5 mins walk in Monte Carvoeiro square where we had some great nights.

The villa is comfortable and spacious with lovely views and is just far enough away for peace and quiet with nightlife a short walk away. The only problem we had was the upstairs showers were a little cold but we only used the downstairs one as there were only the two of us and the pool is a bit cold when you first get in but this was only late June and it can be heated if required.

This was the best holiday we have had and we made friends in Carvoeiro that we are still in touch with and will return to see them next year.

Thank you Alice for our stay in your beautiful Villa - see you next year.

Sue and Billy from Sheffield.

Owner's Response: Dear Billy and Sally, Thank you for your kind review. We are looking forward to see you again next year. I will ask my husband to reset the geyser, so there will be plenty of warm water upstairs as well. ( a one minute job). All the best, Alice
