Villa In Carvoeiro, Algarve with Private Pool, Roof Terrace, Barbecue And More



Updated: 18-Oct-2016
Villa in Carvoeiro, Algarve, Portugal - Tranquil, Rural Location But Only 20 Minutes Walk Away From The Centre Of Carvoeiro

This is a typical Portuguese farmhouse which has been sympathetically restored to provide the perfect holiday home. The property is approached along a partly unmade country lane flanked by almond trees and fields of wild flowers. It is set within an acre of grounds which includes an orange grove, parking area and pretty, colourful gardens with a variety of fruit and nut trees. The patio has a barbecue, outdoor furniture and fronts a 9m x 4m pool with a shallow area for young children and there are fantastic views for miles around from the roof terrace.

This is the ideal place whatever your holiday requirements; it's tranquil, rural location is idyllic yet all amenities are within walking distance. Carvoeiro is a 20 minute walk away and a supermarket is a 15 minutes walk away. There are many activities on offer locally including golfing, horse riding, water sports and visiting areas of historical interest. To keep the younger members of the family entertained there are 2 water parks and a Zoomarine park nearby.

  • 5 of 5

Well what can i say. This was our 3rd visit to casa do amendoeira. We love this place so much. Everything we all need for a holiday home. 15-20 walk each way to intermarche or carvoieiro village. We loved all the new additions to the villa esp the hot tub it was truly amazing. The pool is the best thing ever its huge and its always well used when we are there. Also we had wifi this year. Thanks again Steph and Richard for the best holiday home EVER. In the process of looking for dates next year already!!!!!

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

Firstly, the corespondence with Richard and Steph in making arrangements pre-holiday were brilliant. Timely responses to emails and fully answering our queries and questions. The details sent to us just before we left regarding the surrounding area and location of the villa including pictures and instructions to direct us from the airport were invaluable. The villa itself was tucked away up a fairly rocky track just outside of carvoeiro. We loved the fact that the villa was located far enough outside of carvoerio for it to be quiet and secluded. But close enough to access the supermarket and local amenities.

The villa itself was the perfect size for the three of us. Facilities wise the pool was fantastic and we used it every day. Worth getting it heated even though it was 25-28 degrees every day. The bonus was the hot tub which we didn't expect, as it wasn't mentioned on the details. We used it every evening and the 5 euros lasted the entire week. The rooms inside the villa were great, clean, tidy and well maintained With air con in the bedrooms that came in handy.

We found this villa to meet and exceed our expectations. Thanks to Steph and the team.

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a week over May/June for our first anniversary. Everything was perfect, villa is exactly as in the pictures and the pool is even better. Nice 15 minute walk in either direction to the beach/town and the big supermarket. Really quiet location yet easy walk to town. We ended up not hiring a car. Would highly reccomend this Vila if you want a relaxing , peaceful break.

Vlila was spotless and had everything we needed. Even had a welcome pack with the basics! Great communication from the owner steph and also the local property managers Andy&Jane.

We had excellent weather and did not need the pool heating.

Would reccomend not using the supermarkets by the town as they are very expensive, use the intermarche that you will go past on the drive in. We walked up, shopped and got a taxi back. All taxi drivers seem to know the villa well, which is a bonus as its quite off the beaten track. Thanks steph, you have a lovely villa.

Comfortable, clean. Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week with our son and daughter in law and the villa was very well equipped and suited two couples very well. It was in a lovely quiet area but only a twenty minute walk into the resort, or to a large supermarket in the opposite direction, and much closer to the nearest restaurant. The pool was fantastic and the hot tub was an added bonus. There was an unexpected welcome pack on arrival which consisted of essential food stuffs and all the dealings we had with the owners were pleasant and friendly. All in all would highly recommend.

Another excellent holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Casa Amendoeira on a number of occasions now and have fallen in love with it. Quiet and relaxing, yet only a 20 minute walk into Carvoeiro. The hot tub has been an excellent bonus in spring and during our autumn visit. The villa itself has everything you need and we have loved picking our own oranges to make fresh juice every morning. We are returning again very soon and cannot wait

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : 40 minute drive at 68 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : 20 minute walk at 1.8 Kilometres Nearest Golf : 25 minute walk / 5 minute drive at 2 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : 10 minute walk at 810 Metres Nearest Beach : 20 minute walk at 1.8 Kilometres Car: recommended


The nearest beach is 1.8 kilometres away (20 minutes walk). The beach in the centre of Carvoeiro is beautiful by day and night and because the village square is next to the beach and there are many bars, restaurants and shops nearby there is always plenty going on. There are several quaint little beaches and rock formations within walking distance of the villa since it is so near to the coast so it's great for exploring!


The nearest airport is Faro airport which is 68 kilometres (40 minutes drive) away from the villa. On arrival at the villa it may not be necessary to have a car as there is an excellent supermarket along with restaurants, shops and bars within easy walking distance. However we do tend to recommend hiring a car as it usually works out cheaper than getting taxis to and from the airport and it is useful for day trips.


The vibrant little village of Carvoeiro is approximately 1.8 kilometres (20 minutes walk) away from the villa.

The nearest supermarket is approximately 1.6 kilometres away.

The nearest restaurant is approximately 810 meters away.

The nearest water park is a 10 minute drive away.

The Zoo Marine is a 25 minute drive away.

Silves, the historical town with an impressive castle is a 20 minute drive away. Portimao, the large fishing port, is a 20 minute drive away.

Further Details:

Within walking distance there is a wide selection of restaurants, bars, shops, banks, cash machines, a tourist information point, chemists and other local facilities.

Nearby are excellent golf courses as well as sports complexes, cycling, fishing, boat rides, horse riding, jeep safaris, water parks, Zoo Marine and much more!

There are leaflets in the villa providing details of leisure activities and day trips but you can also pop down to the Tourist Information Centre as well as many other shops in the village to find some great deals on day trips and excursions.
