Fantastic plot, cosy villa

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely, cosy villa in a fantastic plot - you can really tell how loved and cared for it is.

The villa itself is really well stocked and comfortable for up to 6. Where it really shines though is outside - the pool area is perfect, the gardens gorgeous and there are numerous outside eating areas all taking advantage of the different aspects of the plot. There's an excellent built-in BBQ with seating next to it that we made much use of.

One thing to bear in mind is that the pool does get deep fairly quick and the shallow end is probably 3ft+. This was great for us but something to keep in mind for little ones - there are steps that they could play on though.

In terms of location then it's pretty secluded, with a small resort over the road that provides some useful facilities including a mini market. We didn't hire a car and it was a 15 minute walk to the supermarket, 20/25 to Carvoeiro and 30 to the beach at Vale Centianes (the latter two with a bit of up and downhill). Our favourite beach in walking distance was a small but really characterful one the other side of Carvoeiro - Paraiso. Algar Seco is also easily walkable and a brilliant place for scrabbling around the rocks.

With lazy days by the pool and numerous restaurants, souvenir shops, ice creams and boats trips in Carvoerio we had no need of a car for a week, but those with smaller children or staying longer will probably want one.

All in all, an idyllic villa and holiday - can't wait to come back!

What can we say, fabulous Villa beautiful gardens, excellent pool, we swam until late in the evening. Plenty of eating areas including lovely roof terrace. Ana the maid was charming and very helpful. Good location short drive to centre, supermarkets and fabulous beaches although we rarely left the villa as it was so lovely we were going to book again in August but already booked. We have been to this area before but this was perfect for us. If you are looking for a villa with privacy this is the one for you.
