Lovely Villa

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived we were really impressed with the villa, it’s so spacious and homely and well stocked. There were 6 of us staying in the villa. The location is good in a quiet area with shops, restaurants and a beach in walking distance and a taxi into Carvoiero was only a 5 minute drive. There is a larger supermarket not so far away and taxi drivers were very helpful, we also used a taxi to get to the waterpark which is a great day out and again, didn’t cost much.

The pool in the villa was bigger than expected based on the photo and the pool heating was defiantly worth paying the extra for. The patio area was lovely with a BBQ and outdoor furniture. The views of the golf courses and the sea from the upstairs balcony were amazing. Each bedroom and bathroom was a good size. The villa also has Sky TV and Wifi.

I would recommend this villa to anyone who is looking for a pleasant stay in a nice quiet location.

Lovely Villa

  • 5 of 5

A lovely, comfortable villa. Clean and well stocked. It is in walking distance of a few restaurants, two of them being exceptional, especially if you like fish.

The three bedrooms are all a good size.

The beautiful garden dining set also really made the pool area, very comfortable, and attractive.

We have stayed in a few villas in this area and this villa was equally pleasant, and had a couple of extra plus points such as the lovely upstairs balcony and the good nearby restaurants (Rustics, and Jardim do Farol).

We would be happy to recommend the villa, and the owner was pleasant to deal with.

Excellent accomodation

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful Villa inside and out. Maintained to a very high standard. This was ideal property for us being 3 couples as we each had our own rooms with en suite. Owner Sheila was very helpful during our stay and a nice surprise was the welcome pack on our arrival. Local taxi service was excellent and very reasonable as we did not hire a car. Would highly recommend this property

Fabulous villa which fully met our needs. The villa is well equipped and furnished to a high standard. The pool is large and the pool heating was a worthwhile extra.

The villa is well maintained and the maid service is great. The Welcome pack was appreciated as we didn't need to go straight to the shops on arrival.

We loved the position of the villa with its great views over the golf course and of the sea from the first floor balcony. It is in a small seaside town with good restaurants and shops; larger cities are easily accessible by car.

We would definitely recommend this villa and would like to stay again in the future.

Superb villa & location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed twice before, checking availability again! Beautiful villa, clean + nicely decorated, very well equipped and great layout with access directly to pool-side from lounge/bedrooms. Added benefit of good sized heated pool and secluded garden with beautiful views. Kids (6 & 9 but fine for younger children too) had an absolute ball = relaxing for parents too!! Thoroughly recommend as walking distance to lovely beach/village of Carvoeiro and close to local bars/supermarkets/etc. Perfect for golf and good base to explore Algarve too.
