About Isabel M.

Although Isobel handles the reservations for our home, I thought I would jot down some words as the owner. This house was built with much love and care, with special attention to the area, the architecture style of the Algarve and the beautiful view. We thought of spending time here with sliding glass doors always open, family barbecues, children playing in the garden (therefore we had the landscape architect design paths, gazebos, etc.) ... all making use of local materials like the intricate design of cobblestones, the hand painted tiles, the terracotta floor tiles, marble, granite, stone, etc. We come here often and love it. We hope you will enjoy it too! Matty

Why Isabel M. chose Carvoeiro

Although it has a feel of countryside, it is close to the coast and the nearby villages.

What makes this villa unique

It is up the road from Gramacho (Pestana) golf.

Notes on accommodation: Our home is, as a visitor has put it, 'a peaceful heaven!'. We have decorated the interior with unique and unusual art pieces. The house is a work of love with special attention to details and interior decorating - every room is a discovery. When the sliding glass doors are open, the living and dinning rooms become part of the landscaped gardens surrounding the house. The house has a private driveway, a carport and parking area for several cars. It is totally fenced off with security grates and wrought iron, artistically handmade. Outside: The property is set back from the country road leading on to Gramacho golf course. The area has numerous good restaurants. This is golf heaven and the villa is a great golf retreat. Private 10x5m pool which has heating available (at extra charge). Otherwise, expect pool temperature to be around 25ºC in May/June and up to 30ºC in July/August. Plenty of patio/sun lounging space around pool and house. BBQ grill/area, just outside the dinning room. Extensive gardens keep the main house and patios very private. Property has secure main gate and is surrounded by stone walls all around. This is the perfect place for lounging with a book, admiring the outstanding views, which extend from the ocean on the south/west to the Monchique mountains to the north. We go often to the nearby beaches which are spectacular. Utility Room: Utility room, off the kitchen, has all the cleaning equipment including washing machine, hoover, iron, ironing board, etc. it also has an extra alcove with small bed which is perfect as hideaway/extra children's bedroom. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: A mid-week clean with change of towels is included with our compliments! Provided: linens (all cotton), towels, beach towels, pillows, etc. - just plan on relaxing ... Other: The outside entrance with stone fountain leads on to an extra hallway/living area/courtyard. Landscape: mature bougainvilleas and trees, rosemary, hibiscus, oleanders. TV with international channels. DVD player, lots of DVDs. Free Wi-Fi, board games.

Quinta Azul

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic property set in beautiful gardens. The nicest property we have ever stayed in completely exceeding our expectations. The villa is extremely spacious great for families, well equipped and very well maintained as well as being traditional. Emilia the maid kept the place spotless and was lovely. We booked this villa through owners direct and was contacted by Isabel who was lovely to deal with and even made a special visit to meet us. We would have no hesitation in recommending this villa to friends. If you want somewhere special to stay then look no further.

A very special retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at quinta azul for a week and didn't want to leave. Two families with young children fitted in with space to spare. All facilities and equipment were plentiful and we really did think that we were in the middle of nowhere as it was so peaceful and private, but we were a 5 minute drive to some fabulous beaches. The property management team were professional and very helpful responding immediately to our needs. The property does have some steps inside the main house between the lounge and kitchen area as well as down to the pool which we felt would be useful to know when planning a stay with young children. The property boasts 4 bedrooms but again we felt it important to point out that two are in the main house with another two and two bathrooms are in an adjoining annexe with its own front door both front doors are secured by a gated main entrance. Having noted these points we felt that we had the most relaxing and comfortable holiday here and will definitely be returning which is something we've never done with other villas.

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Quinta Azul for 1 week, there were 6 adults and 2 children both 2 years old.

The house was amazing, really nice layout. There are 2 large bedrooms in the main part of the house, then there are 2 more rooms in an annex that is detached from the main part of the house (only by about 5 meters, but has its own front door). This was perfect for our party as 1 of the couples did not have children so it was nice for them to have their own area where they would not get woken up at silly o'clock by the 2 over excited 2 year olds.

As lovely as the inside of the the house is, it is the outdoor space that really makes this house. The garden area is huge and surrounds the entire house. There are so many different areas, the children loved exploring. There is also a nice roof terrace where there is a bench and a gorgeous view. There are multiple outdoor dining areas and lots of benches dotted around the garden where you can escape to for a quiet moment.

The pool area is nice, plenty of sun beds and parasols. There are also lots of children's pool toys that our girls enjoyed playing with.

There are a couple of places that we visited that were within walking distance of the house. A bar just down the road, I can't recall what it was called but was adjoining to a souvenir shop. It did not look much from the outside but was a lovely little sun trap and was away from the road meaning the girls also had a safe area where they could play.

We also visited the pizzeria, this was lovely. We did not go until our last night and really wish we had gone sooner so that we could have got an extra visit in.

Both of these places were unbelievably cheap too which made them even better!

Isabel was amazing throughout the booking process, always answered any questions very promptly and thoroughly. Alma met us when we arrived, she was lovely and showed us around and made sure we knew where everything was and that we had everything we needed, considering we arrived at 1am we were really impressed with this service.

Can't wait to return for another stay.

Car: recommended

Special interest holidays:

Ask us abut cycling (bike rentals and tours), catering, babysitting.

Carvoeiro village is just 5min. drive and Praia da Rocha hub of shops, night life/Casino, down town Portimão-about 15min. drive.

Formula 1 circuit: 20 mins away.

Another idea: take a day trip by car or bus to Lisbon or Seville, Spain!

If you have special interests, please let us know: nearly all activities - too many to list! - are available and we are happy to try to get the information for you.

Stroll downtown Carvoeiro and check out all the shops. Walk along the cliffs ...drive to nearby Ferragudo fishing village for the flea market, or Alvor fishing village (15min. away)where you can take kite-surfing lessons...or just observe the colourful kite surfers and take advantage of the extensive, new boardwalks that provide access to the dunes and beach.


Nearby beaches (2km): Carvoeiro, Praia do Molho, Praia dos Caneiros, Praia Grande.

Typically, the south coast beaches, because of the calmer waves and gentle slopping shoreline, are very nice for wading, beach combing, safe swimming and sunbathing.

The west coast (40min. away) is exciting, wild and excellent for surfing, body boarding, and the general enjoyment of the sea and dramatic cliffs and landscape.


The nearest airport is in Faro, a 40 min drive from Lagoa on the A22 motorway; Car hires are recommended to reserve in advance of arrival, especially during the high season. The airport in Lisbon is about a 3 hours drive, or a 4 hour bus or train ride away. We have helped guests in the past with transfer arrangements. If there is a need, please let us know.

Further Details:

Many restaurants and convenience stores, shops, banks, all nearby. The village of Carvoeiro is like a quaint shopping centre, but there are many others around (Aqua Shopping Centre, Guia Shopping Centre). There are several water slide parks. Other activities available in the area: windsurfing, surf, para-gliding, skydiving, kite-surfing, horseback riding, cycling, hiking, dolphin watching, kayaking, jet skiing, diving, snorkelling, paragliding, coastal tours, sailing, fishing. You will find all the details in a Welcome Folder upon arrival, but feel free to ask us for more details! The extensive coast line and beach area offer plenty of privacy and sunbathing space for all, without any fear of towel overlapping. There is also plenty of space for beach games such as Frisbee and the very popular bat and ball. Some restaurants: Just up the road (5min walk), the restaurant Bon Bon with excellent reviews, also does catering. On the beach of Caneiros, the restaurant Rei Das Praias looks more like a cafe, but has an absolutely splendid setting, and grills some fresh fish that is truly excellent. A bit expensive for what you get, but worth at least one meal.
