About Colin Rawles

We are Karen and Colin with two sons 22 and 25.We live in Staffordshire, England.

We love the Silver Coast area of Portugal as it's real authentic old fashioned Portugal, with a local friendly safe environment.Surrounded by vineyards selling local delicious wines. Our sons love holidays at the house especially the pool, our table tennis table, the karting track at Bombarral, and the beaches.

Colin Rawles purchased this villa in 2007

Why Colin Rawles chose Carvalhal

We love this region of Portugal. The Silver Coast combines great beaches with good surfing, interesting towns and historical sites, many wineries producing excellent wines and restaurants offering great food. Essentially it ticked all the boxes. Having visited the Algarve many times. We decided we preferred the Silver Coast and began a hunt for our property. We wanted a peaceful, attractive location close enough to the major attractions.

What makes this villa unique

Too often holidaymakers return from holiday only discovering the best a location has to offer when they are about to leave. We have gone to a lot of trouble to make sure our guests are well informed about the best restaurants, beaches, beautiful places to visit together with directions to make the whole experience enjoyable and stress free.We now offer a SAT NAV service, so that you can find the house with ease from the airport, choose from a variety of restaurants, supermarkets, places of interest and beaches!

Lovely house in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Very nice, well equipped house with a good pool (which was warm with the heating). Stayed in April, weather wasn't great but plenty to do both in the house and in the surrounding area. Owners were very helpful. Highly recommended.

Beautiful spacious villa in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We were four generations and the house and facilities served us all very well allowing for a fabulous family holiday. The layout was excellent with the majority of the accommodation on the 1st floor taking advantage of the wonderful views.

The kitchen and lounge were both enormous with sufficient seating to accommodate everyone comfortably. The bedrooms were also large especially the room on the ground floor. Both this room and the master bedroom on the first floor were en suite and there was also decent family bathroom.

Outdoors there was plenty of space with the garden surrounding the whole house and of course there was the pool which was a good size both for a decent swim and for playtime for the children. Every need was catered for with several pool toys, outdoor seating and loungers, plus the balcony for morning coffee or evening drink.

The information provided especially the Sat Nav meant that the holiday was as stress free as it could be, Colin also sent additional information to enhance our few days in Lisbon after our week at the villa.

We went to Caldas da Rainha for the Monday market - a lovely little town, Foz do Arehlo beach twice where we ate at 7 Vega and Pescador – both very good. Much to the delight of our train obsessed 3 year old grandson we visited Buddha Eden which was interesting. We also managed to persuade our 10 year old granddaughter to get out of the pool long enough to fit in a brief visit to Obidos.

We ate twice at Mae D’agua restaurant in the evening where the food and service were both really good and they certainly do look after the children.

We absolutely love this area of Portugal and this villa is perfectly located to explore the area. Our only problem was there was not enough time to do that as well as take full advantage of the facilities at the villa. We were blessed with good weather on the whole although the morning mist took until 11am to burn off most days except typically on the morning we were leaving. Thank you again for allowing us to stay in your beautiful property, we hope to return soon.

This villa is perfect in every way. The location is very peaceful and the views are stunning. The villa itself is in beautiful decorative order, very spacious, furnished in a tasteful yet simple way and very well equipped. The pool is lovely - the option of pool heating is an added bonus. We would definitely return to this villa for another holiday.

Super house in super location

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a relaxing break amongst a glorious rural setting with close access to cafe, shops and within easy driving distance to beaches, watersports and historic places to visit, look no further.

The house is very well furnished and the pool provides a welcome dip in the warmer weather. Colin, the owner, has been very helpful throughout our trip, both before and during, and Maria, the housekeeper, is a lovely, kindly, friendly and quietly efficient soul who made us feel welcome throughout our stay.

There is a great selection of places to eat nearby and if you enjoy walking, running and cycling, all of this can be done from the house if you are so inclined.

We stayed for 3 weeks and relished every moment.

Great Holiday Destination in Portugal. 21-28/07/17

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our weeks holiday in this amazing villa which is situated in a small quiet village with very little traffic, how we wish we could have stayed there longer. From finding this villa and getting in touch with Colin everything ran smoothly. We were sent lots of information about the villa and places to visit that we really didn't have to look for anything ourselves and the use of the pre-programmed Sat Nav was great. We visited a few of the places and also had food at the two local restaurants - everything was all we could wish for.

Maria, the housekeeper was there to greet us and show us around. She told us to phone her if there was any problem and if she couldn't sort it out she would phone Colin and find someone who could.

The rooms were spacious and being a party of 8 (age range 10-70+) the villa suited perfectly with plenty of room for everyone.

We also had the pool heated and that was well worth it because it was used every day and the table tennis was a great hit.

So, thank you again for letting us have the use of your villa and certainly hope that we may use it in the future.

The Bennetts, Roberts, and Woulfe-Flanagans.
