About the property

Villas in Carvoeiro, Western Algarve, Portugal - Peaceful, close to amenities and beaches

Esmeralda is a jewel in the Portuguese countryside, hidden along a winding lane, but only 3 minutes by car from Carvoeiro town centre and its beaches. The villa has three double bedrooms but sleeps 7 people as one of the bedrooms also has a single bed (a cot is also provided). All the bedrooms have AC and en-suite facilities with shower units but there is a fourth family bathroom with a bath. Spacious open living area has a fully equipped kitchen and dining area opening to the pool terrace. The pool is fenced off for security for the children. TV provides UK, Irish, Dutch and German channels and wifi internet is also available for the guests (no charge). The nearest supermarket is within 1km and some local restaurants can be reached by foot; the nearest restaurant to the villa is 400m. The views are over the countryside and next door there is a beautiful vineyard where one can also visit.

The actual property (land) consists of two separate villas and their own swimming pools, and they can either be rented separately or as one unit for a bigger family or group of friends. The properties share the entrance gate and the drive-way in but other than that they have their own privacy. Secure parking.

The seaside town of Carvoeiro is ever-popular with its cafes, shops, restaurants, bars and nightlife. In the evening you can try the many restaurants serving fresh fish, charcoal grilled meat and great wines. Children are always welcome in the restaurants, and during the peak summer months there is always evening entertainment (live music) in the town square.

Fab holiday

  • 5 of 5

Quinta Esmeralda was an ideal villa for the 7 of us in our party ( 2 families). It was clean & well equipped with items you would have at home, enough space, in & out so that you didn't feel on top of one another. Plenty of bathrooms, so there was no crossing your legs having to wait for a free one or a shower. Having use of a dishwasher & washing machine made easy meal times & a case full of clean clothes to take home. The swimming pool was great, as the depth wasn't too deep (up to 5 feet ) suitable for all to play in with sun loungers & towels for all surrounding it. When the children got bored they we're able to go & watch sky t.v or a DVD inside on a comfortable leather suit.

The location was good if you don't mind driving. I would definitely recommend hiring a car as the supermarket wasn't far but not near enough to walk to & you definitely need transport to reach Carvoeiro centre. We did only hire 1 car & did 2 runs when we went out which worked well as nothing was ever that far away.

There were many restaurants in the centre but there was a lovely friendly restaurant just a 2minute walk away which we visited a couple of times, otherwise we ate in as the barb-a-que & seating area at the villa were well set out & homely with large table & chairs & adequate lighting to enjoy on an evening.

We were fortunate to be holidaying when the Lagoa festival was happening which was incredible, a must to go to if you are there in August. Another wonderful day out was to Slide n Splash, but go early & take a pack up. Recommended to go to nearer the end of your holiday so you might not burn as much!

We found a few wonderful beaches when exploring, always with room ( except Carvoerio ) to place a towel & enjoy a swim in the clear sea.

We hope to return to this villa which is recommendation in it's self!!
