Guestbook comments from the owner

We have just returned from our 3rd holiday in 4 years at Villa Rita and each time we have had a fantastic experience.

As described, Villa Rita is modern, spacious and perfectly presented with every thing you could possibly need. It is perfect for us 3 couples to have a fabulous holiday, but it is also suited for families.

The pool and barbecue area is ideal for chilling at the villa, with the maintenance and maid service exceptional.

It is in a quiet location and only a 15 minute stroll down into Carvoeiro.

We all enjoy the vast choice of restaurants and bars but our favourites include A'gale, China Town and especially the spectacular Boneca Bar along the cliff Boardwalk.

This year we experienced a boat trip into the caves which we highly recommend.

We have been to some great holiday destinations, but Villa Rita in Carvoeiro is all time favourite.......already looking forward to our next visit to Villa Rita !

Fantastic villa!

  • 5 of 5

The villa was fantastic and very well equipped! It really did have everything you needed with 3 really good sized bedrooms 2 with ensuite and one with a bathroom right next door. There is a mini market about 3 minutes walk away in a complex of apartments and carvoeiro square is about a 15-20 mins walk depending how fast you walk! There is a beautiful beach on the way to the main set of restaraunts which is absolutely stunning. The pool in the villa is great with a shallow end that my daughter learned to swim in!

Fantastic villa and highly recommend

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

Had a fabulous holiday at Villa Rita very spacious and nicely decorated. Maids came in twice a week, very clean and comfortable, home from home. Lovely quiet location and beautiful pool. Supermarket and pizzeria 5 mins walk, and centre of Carviero 15 mins walk, lovely beach and nice restaurants. So many to choose from, but you need to book most evenings. Pool and gardens tended to regularly during our stay.

Board walk along the cliffs a must and lovely restaurant serving piri piri chicken on the BBQ washed down with Sangria. Slide and splash a good day out and the boat trip to the caves really enjoyable, if you go from Portimao, you can swim off the boat. A really enjoyable holiday looking to going back sometime next year.

Thankyou Margaret really enjoyed our stay at Villa Rita.

Wonderful Villa

  • 5 of 5

Just arrived home after a wonderful stay in Villa Rita. The villa is perfectly situated in walking distance from anything needed, beautiful cliff top walks, restaurants, and supermarkets (wonderful new Apolonia is nearby). The villa is excellently equipped with a lovely pool and lovely surroundings to sit in. BBQ is in a great covered area which proved very popular. All in all a very peaceful restful stay in a superb, high quality villa. Well recommended!

Perfect family villa!

  • 5 of 5

Myself, my husband and our 2 teenage daughters and their 2 friends stayed in Villa Rita for 10 days and had a great holiday. We spent a lot of time by the pool and the girlls were happy with the availability of wifi , a huge television and Sky movies and air conditioning.

The villa was well equipped and immaculate . The bbq area was great for nights in .

Carveiro is a lovely town which offered many choices of restaurants and bars .

There was plenty to do when we did manage to prize the girls out within easy driving distance . A very stress free holiday that I would fully recommend .

The villa is beautifully presented, clean, and modern, the layout is also very good and was ideal for 7 of us, 4 adults and 3 children, although the 7th bed was a camp bed. The pool was amazing and the location very good, although you would really need to hire a car, particularly with older people and young children

Fabulous Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent two wonderful weeks at Villa Rita. This beautiful, spacious villa is located in a peaceful area and is well furnished & equipped with everything you could need for your stay.

The garden and pool areas are well maintained and the maid service provided ensures the villa is kept spotlessly clean.

For golf enthusiasts, there are two courses situated just a 5 minute drive away and there are many more to choose from nearby.

The waterpark, 'Slide and Splash' is less than a 10 minute drive from the villa and a large supermarket, 'Intermache', roughly the same distance.

Car hire is not necessary - the efficient and inexpensive local taxi firms are easy to contact and will collect you from the villa.

There is a small, well stocked supermarket located within the Quinta do Paraiso complex which is just a 3 minute walk from the villa. A very pretty restaurant, Trattoria Oliveria, is in this area too, providing freshly made pizzas and pasta dishes. The hire of tennis courts are also available at this complex.

The picturesque town centre of Carvoeiro is a 15 - 20 minute leisurely stroll away and has ample restaurants to choose from. Our favourites were Ele & Ela and Happys (very friendly & enthusiastic owner!) - booking is recommended. For snacks we liked Hemmingways and for ice cream, Gelados & Comphania - so many flavours to choose from!

Overall we had a fantastic stay at Villa Rita and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others.

Thank you to Kenny and Margaret for all your tips and advice - we look forward to returning.

The Murray Family.

Closest large supermarket 5 minutes drive. 15 minute walk into village. Car not essential.

Further Details:

Carvoeiro is a lively fishing village which has become increasingly popular during recent years, whilst retaining its charm and character. The fishing boats come and go, and fresh fish and locally produced fruit and vegetables can be purchased from the local markets. The area offers a wide selection of restaurants and bars to suit all tastes and budgets. Locally produced pottery and crafts are sold in shops in the centre of town and on stalls in the square. During the summer the square is the venue for live music and dancing.
