Why Marie chose Carvoeiro

This Villa is in a great location close to town but also very private. Has amazing views and great place to relax with well furnished luxury terraces. The swimming pool is always a favourite as it is in a great location with lots of space around and walk in steps and heated.

What makes this villa unique

This villa is very spacious on large grounds and in a unique position so close to town but with amazing views of the sea and mountains. The Pool is one of the best is heated with walk in steps so child & adult friendly and also gated for safety of small children

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We absolutely loved the villa, its maturity and convenient location. We have always previously stayed further west along the Algarve but we are so glad we have discovered somewhere different. Our stay was wonderful, attention had been paid to every detail in order for us to enjoy our time there. Lloyd was very helpful and Julliette was charming, a credit to such a great property. We really did not want for anything during our stay, a fabulous warm, clean pool, carefully planned seating areas to enjoy a shady lunch or evening drinks as the sun went down, quality fittings and linen and such a well equipped kitchen. We have successfully booked many places with Owners Direct but I think this one comes out top! Many thanks once again." James and Sally

Just beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Carvoeiro at this beautiful property.

The home owner Marie was wonderful and went the extra mile in recommending local interests and food spots for us to visit. The home manager Sian was also lovey and greeted us upon arrival - everything was clean and ready to use. We really loved the pool which - thankfully - had a gate to slow our little toddling people down as they raced around the spacious grounds of this property, enjoying all the space. There's a nice balcony to relax on too where you can watch the sunset - an unexpected surprise for us!

"I like our holiday house, it's big" ~ Little person, aged 2.5 years

Our family of 9 including 2 toddlers had an amazing time and recommend for families to come and stay at this amazing place.

Wonderful Villa

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Casa Tara in August with friends, this villa is set in beautiful surroundings.

The swimming pool was absolutely wonderful along with the spacious sun terraces and lovely gardens.

Plenty of room in the villa, all bedrooms a good size with lots of cupboard/drawer space. The kitchen had a vast range of kitchen utensils, appliances, cutlery and crockery - it was like home from home.

We did walk down to town a few times but in the heat we found it easier to call a cab, this was the same returning back to the villa.

Carvoeiro is a vibrant town with lots of bars and restaurants and the square is a great place for entertainment.

I would definitely recommend this lovely villa.

A Lovely Villa Ideal for families

  • 5 of 5

We were 3 Generations with Grandchildren 11, 7 and 16 months the Villa is perfect for little ones very safe with the gated pool, which we had heated, The pool is properly heated so no shivering for the little ones in their Factor 50 Swimsuits which has been a problem elsewhere.

The villa is very well equipped with lots of good quality plastic glasses and crockery which was ideal for eating drinking and BBQ's around the pool The bedrooms have plenty of storage with nice ensuites all have their own Individually controlled Air Con Units

We did not have a car and walking to Carvoeiro is a bit of a trek for little ones, the pavements are not pushchair friendly, having said that there are a couple of excellent restaurants within about 200 metres. We would highly recommend Ponto Encontro amazing value and quality for lunch - you need to book

All in all a fantastic 2 weeks, we dined locally or at the villa and the little had great fun in the pool

Great break for the wider family!

  • 5 of 5

Casa da Tara lived up to almost all of our (high) expectations of it. A party of 11 from three generations, aged from 2 to 66, we came together to celebrate a wedding anniversary. The villa offered a very spacious and restful base for our holiday and provided the perfect starting point for exploring this delightful area of Portugal.

If I were to be picky, I would point out that the advertised "walk" to town and beach was great and very doable for most of the members of our party, but didn't work for the very youngest, nor for me with arthritic knees.

The house and its garden are well equipped and maintained. They catered well for the needs of all the members of our party, whatever their age. The option to take our meals in different parts of the house and the abundance of crockery and cutlery suited us very well.

Excellent location, and facilities, for a chilled-out extended family holiday

  • 5 of 5

As Grandma and Grandpa, we had an amazing time with our almost 2-year-old granddaughters and their Mum's and Dad's.The child-friendly pool lived up to expectations, and there are good supermarkets and restaurants within easy reach. There are spectacular sites close by, if you can drag yourselves away, and friendly staff to ensure everything runs smoothly!
