About Karl Mitchell

Seventy years old widower,

The house was originally bought as a holiday home and not for rental purposes, however, i no longer go to Portugal as often since losing my wife.

Karl Mitchell purchased this villa in 2004

Why Karl Mitchell chose Carvoeiro

I bought a villa in this area after many years coming to Portugal. I wanted an area with excellent restaurants and lively but not too busy night life. After visiting many towns on the Algarve, Carvoiero was my favourite.

What makes this villa unique

Enclosed private gardens. Purpose built barbeque. WIFI

Amazon fire TV available with links to many sports channels and english movie channels.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Perfect location far enough away for peace and quiet but close enough to all amenities. Top class restaurants within a 5 min walk especially the Bon Bon. Great walking along the cliff tops or just lazing around the villa and pool. Carvoeiro town has a great morning market tucked away but worth finding for fresh fish an meat just right for the barbecue!

Very nice home in a quiet residential area with a private garden and pool

  • 5 of 5

Our weeks stay left us feeling relaxed. It was quiet and safe and had well equipped kitchen, comfy lounge and dining area. Yes it could do with a lick of paint here and there but we loved this villa and will probably return.

Stunning Villa in a peaceful rural location.

  • 5 of 5

The first impression of the villa was that it ticked all of the boxes we were looking for. We had a couple of tough months prior to our stay and the accommodation and location was spot on. Ideally a car is required but all the locations we had planned to see were all in easy reach. However its was always a pleasure to return to the villa and chill out by the heated pool or on the spacious veranda. The weather was stunning and we were able to spend a couple of days by the pool getting some well needed rest. The directions given to the accommodation were spot and were soon settling into our luxurious surroundings. All mod cons were available to us and there was plenty of space for us to relax into.

Everything in the advert we responded to was provided. When we arrived the Villa was spotless and all stated facilities provided. We had good communication with the owners.

We would certainly return for future holidays and we would highly recommend this Villa to our family and friends.

Thanks again - this break has provided us with valuable rest.

Look forward to the opportunity to stay again in the not too distant future.

The property is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This property is amazing. it is beautifully maintained (except for some damp in the bathroom which is so high up you don't notice it) with a fantastic pool overlooking a beautiful view. You are near some really amazing beaches with caves to explore, clear water and life guards in attendance. Carvoeiro is a great little town too. You do need a car though but the local pizza restaurant is well worth a visit with really friendly staff. We also visited slide and splash and wanted to do a boat trip but these were all cancelled due to a storm at sea which was unusual.

We would def recommend this property.

A wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this villa. We were here with 2 adults and 2 young children, and the size of the house and the rooms was perfect for us. The pool was terrific, and we spend a lot of time just lounging on the terrace. There are some excellent beaches within driving distance (we spent quite some time at Praia Grande), and we also went to see the towns in the vicinity. The villa itself is spacious, the kitchen is well equipped and everything works. I think the only thing that really needs improving is that the bathrooms seemed to have a bit of a damp problem (only higher up on the walls and the ceiling, so taking a shower was still perfectly fine, as long as I did not look up). I would definitely recommend this place for people who like a relatively quiet place to stay: there is no night-life to speak of in the vicinity (which I think is a big plus) and the area is really residential (you do need a car for shopping and getting around). We did go for dinner at restaurant Bon Bon (one michelin star) which is just a few minutes by foot from the villa. That was a great experience.
