Luxury Secluded Villa with Private Heated Pool and Sea Views



Updated: 18-Oct-2016
3bedroom 3 bathroom with beautiful sea views close to the beach

Luxury villa in very private position, in its own quiet grounds which are not overlooked. It has fantastic and unobstructed sea views from the terraces. The large 10 x 5m pool can be heated. There is a pool side BBQ with a shady seated bougainvillia covered bower, and a cool inner courtyard with another BBQ for hot days. The villa is on the coast within 5 mins walk of the beach. A 9 hole golf course lies behind. It is close to many restaurants and village shops, and an excellent fruit and fish market. Carvoeiro has no high rise buildings. It was a fishing village which has grown in to a small town. WiFi is available.

About the Owner

We are a retired couple (a teacher and airline pilot ) We spend three months in the Spring and three months in the Autumn at the villa. The rest of the year we spend in our village at Woodcote in Oxfordshire

I enjoy playing tennis and golf while my husband swims in the sea everyday. We have made lots of friends and have a great social life.

Our villa is our home and not just a rental property, so all the furniture and fittings are of a high quality

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We have stayed in many Villas in Carvoeiro, but this is definitely the best. We have already booked again for next year. It is so peaceful here and we love just sitting and looking at the wonderful views."

"You see those "wow" moments on TV when someone walks into a property. Well all six in our group walked into Casa Cristina and together said "WOW"!"

"This is our sixth time at Casa Cristina. We love it so much. It is a luxury villa, not just a holiday home."

Charming family home in a peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

This villa is perfect for a family. The villa is very well equipped with everything you need in the kitchen, washing machine, dishwasher and a large fridge and freezer. The pool is lovely - I recommend asking to have it heated if you are going early in the season and is very child fried as the top terrace can be closed off completely from the pool to keep little ones safe. From the top terrace you have uniterrupted views of the sea , perfect for quiet evenings in . The nearest beach, a lovely cove with a beach bar is 10 minutes walk . We were looked after very well by the property manager who answered all of our questions and the pill was kept spotless by the charming maid. This is a wonderful family home

Dream villa in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from this villa after spending two wonderful weeks in peaceful relaxation with beautiful sea views. The interior décor and furnishings were first class and make it a home from home. We didn't want for anything. We will definitely return. Highly recommended.

A perfect holiday residence

  • 5 of 5

This was at least the third time we have stayed in this property, and its high standard has never slipped. It is immaculately clean and tidy, spacious, comfortable and has a very well equipped kitchen and two barbecues. The pool is perfect, a shallow end for youngsters and long enough to swim proper lengths. The location is superb, with a view of the sea, three lovely beaches either a walk or quick drive away, and a number of excellent restaurants rightly recommended by the villa's owners. There is also a wonderful and efficient local manager on hand to help with any problems, and I would certainly recommend this property to a friend or relative.

The villa which has the WOW factor

  • 5 of 5

Villa Christina was everything it promised to be, immaculate in every way, well

equipped and in a beautiful position overlooking the sea. All the family enjoyed

our stay especially our 2 grandsons who thought it was awesome!! Truss the agent was very informative and gave us some handy tips. It was also lovely

to meet Christine and Alex and hope to book again and would certainly

recommend to friends and family. We really enjoyed our dinner at Julios restaurant to celebrate our grandsons 10th birthday.

Fantastic family owned villa with TLC

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at this wonderful villa and can highly recommend it. I instantly felt relaxed and home from home.

The spacious villa is located in a peaceful area with beautiful gardens and within walking distance of Carvoeiro town, plus fantastic local beaches and restaurants. It is very spacious, comfortable and well equipped, and I would suggest suitable for families of any ages or a romantic break.

The villa has 3 large bedrooms, with their own bathrooms and a separate 4th loo! All bedrooms have direct access to the largest of the balcony areas, which overlook the pool and sea. The Master Bedroom suite is situated away from the other bedrooms.

There is a spacious sitting room with comfy sofas, a TV & DVD and log burning fire (plus lots of books and toys), with large patio doors opening on to the balcony. There is a separate dining area and well equipped kitchen and utility room.

In addition to lounging by the Villa pool there are many things to do - cliff tops walks, stunning beaches, sailing and dolphin trips, shopping plus many fantastic Portuguese restaurants.

I would not hesitate returning ASAP!
