About Jackie Darbourne

My husband and I live in the UK, and we are both still working, so we can't spend as much time as we would like in Carvoeiro.

We have been coming to the area on and off for almost 30 years, firstly with friends, then with the children and now with friends again! We fell in love with Carvoeiro on our first visit, and although it has changed over the years, it still retains its charm and family atmosphere.

Jackie Darbourne purchased this villa in 2006

Why Jackie Darbourne chose Carvoeiro area

We decided to buy a villa in Carvoeiro, and after searching for the right property, we bought Casa Jean for its amazing sea view. We have since renovated the property to a high standard and added a second floor for a 4th bedroom and en-suite.

Our villa is about 20 mins to the Carvoeiro beach, and Centianes beach is about a 15 min walk. There are also some very good restaurants within a 10 min walk to the top of the village, and we have a major supermarket about 10 mins drive away.

What makes this villa unique

Our villa is tucked away in a small cul-de-sac, so is very quiet, but all amenities are within 10-20 min walk away or a short taxi ride back at the end of an evening.

We are also lucky that the terraces and pool area are almost not overlooked by other villas, and our outdoor seating area is protected from sunlight/wind, so can be used all year round.

We love coming to Casa Jean at all times of the year, as apart from the odd occasion that it rains in the out-of-season months, the weather is usually very good.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The best villa we have ever stayed in. The owners have thought of every single detail to the point that there was nothing at all we needed! The pool is amazing, as are all of the bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen and especially the stunning views! The villa decor is lovely. Fatima, the maid, is fantastic and couldn't do enough for us. Would love to come back again next year!

Another fantastic holiday at Casa Jean. This time we visited with friends. We have all thoroughly enjoyed the pool and the beautiful villa. Thanks to Fatima for keeping the villa so clean. We're looking forward to coming back soon.

We loved the villa and the breathtaking views. It was convenient to be able to walk to the restaurants. It was lovely to see a villa that is so nicely kitted out with all the crockery/utensils one could need, and it is also very tastefully decorated. Fatima kept the villa in great condition and was very helpful. We will be more than happy to recommend the villa to friends.

A wonderfully relaxing week in Casa Jean

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed an amazing week in Casa Jean. The accommodation was amazing and as listed, 3 bedrooms with large en-suite facilities and the fourth bedroom having an attached bathroom. The beds were all very comfortable and t he whole villa was spotless. Large fully equipped kitchen and two bbq's which we enjoyed using. Fantastic pool which we paid for heating as it was early season. The pool and gardens very nice with ample seating, sun beds and pool towels. The management staff were very helpful and the daily maid service was great. She was extremely accommodating and was happy to sort out our laundry. The view from the villa is amazing out to sea and the pool was very private so great for relaxing. The walk into town is acceptable but a hire car is good for trips to the supermarket and exploring. I can't speak highly enough of the owner. Jackie was very flexible with our check in and check out times which was great as we were two families arriving at different times. I would certainly return to Casa Jean.

The perfect place for relaxing in the sun

  • 5 of 5

A last minute decision to seek some sun in the Algarve led us to Jackie and Casa Jean. With all the details sorted within 24 hours, we arrived 3 days later to a beautiful spacious Villa, a pool that has sunshine from sunrise to sunset and all amenities nearby - restaurants within easy walking distance, a supermarket 5 minutes drive away and Fatima( the maid) available a couple of hours a day to keep things tidy ! Whether there are 2 of you or a houseful, you won't be disappointed - we will certainly be back ! C and L

Outstanding Villa

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many villas in Aerias Dos Moinhos, and without question this has been the best, this villa has been re modernised to a extremely high standard. The description on the web site is accurate and the facilities were second to none, cleanliness was also to a high standard and the maid Fatima spoke a little English and could not do enough for you.

The owners customer service levels were professional in all aspects and we would have no hesitation in recommending Casa Jean to any prospective visitor.

The village is in easy walking distance and there are many good restaurants close by, with the proximity of the village being close we have never hired a car, a taxi to the Intermache will cost you 14 euros return and from the village to the villa 5 euros.

You will not be disappointed, have a good holiday

Beautiful 5 Star Villa In Ideal Location

  • 5 of 5

Casa Jean is a very impressive Villa situated close to the town centre where there are an ample number of bars and restaurants. We stayed for 10 nights and dined in a different restaurant each night.

The Villa was everything we had wished for and more, well maintained and equipped and kept clean and tidy by Fatima the maid who was excellent. Highly recommended for a relaxing Villa holiday - we will definitely be returning in the future.

Beautiful views

  • 4 of 5

Arrived at the villa early, everything there was immaculate, the views are amazing. Our party of 6 adults and 3 kids, the villa was very spacious with plenty of room for us all. Pool was fantastic (we paid for heating) definetly worth it. We had a fantastic holiday, a little too far to walk with very small children to the centre, but only a short drive away. Very enjoyable holiday.

Very good communication with owner at all times. Thank you .

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind review. We always recommend pool heating if you have small children in your party, although probably not necessary in July/August when the weather is very hot. We look forward to welcoming you back to Casa Jean in the future.

Carvoeiro family holiday 2016

  • 5 of 5

Arrived at the villa which is beautiful and done to a lovely standard and clean and tidy. Our first family holiday with our children now adults. We were spoiled with both the accommodation and the weather. We would certainly recommend the property to others. It was just a short walk to the centre with plenty of bars and restaurants. The children went sea fishing, visited slide and splash and had a day at the beach, with he rest of the visit spent enjoying the lovely pool and sunshine. Already sorting our next visit.......
