Recently Refurbished Luxury 4 Bedroom Villa With Private Pool



Updated: 04-Sep-2016
Villa in Vale Do Milho, Carvoeiro, Western Algarve, Portugal - Peaceful Location, 5 Min Walk To Golf Course And Beach

Situated on the popular Vale do Milho development, this spacious Villa offers comfort and privacy and is only a little over a mile from Carvoeiro with its many restaurants and bars. The local beaches are all stunning and each no more than 5-10 minutes by car, with the nearest just a few minutes walk from the Villa. Designed as a family holiday home, the property is on one level and has recently had the benefit of a complete refurbishment of all windows, shutters, bathrooms and kitchen as well as new floors throughout.

Each of the 4 bedrooms is air conditioned and three speed ceiling fans are fitted in the bedrooms and the sitting room.

It has always been our aim to maximise the pool patio area and so all 4 bedrooms as well as the sitting room, have direct access onto the poolside through patio windows.

The large Pergola seats 10-12 and is the ideal spot to relax over lunch or a drink in the heat of the day, or to enjoy dinner in the evening. The barbecue area is alongside, together with a pool shower and a W.C. There is also a second barbecue area just outside the dining room with its own seating and barbecue.

‘An absolutely beautiful villa. We can’t stop coming’

Jane + Chris

‘We’ve been going on boys summer golf trips for 18 years and this is certainly one of the best Villa’s we have stayed in and probably the best location for accessing such a range of world class golf courses. Already booked again for next year”

This is our first visit to Carvoeiro and we were overwhelmed not only with the location but with the outstanding villa. All major resorts are easy to get to but that's only if you can take yourself away from this fabulous property.

The owners have gone to great lengths to make sure the villa becomes your home from home as it is very well equipped with absolutely everything you could possibly need during your stay. It delivered!

Believe me when I say I am a fussy person. Even I could not find any problems or faults with the villa. My only regret is that we could not stay longer.

We will not hesitate to recommend this wonderful villa to anyone looking for quality during their holiday and I hope we can return ourselves in the near future.

Fabulous Villa

  • 5 of 5

well equipped, spacious villa with a fabulous pool and pool side. Located in a good area for restaurants and beaches, This is the best villa we have stayed in, having been to Carvoeiro on numerous occasions.

Owner is very prompt to provide the necessary information and answer any questions. Very accommodating and should be proud of his property.

Would not hesitate in recommending this property or returning ourselves.

As a family with two teens and a young adult we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at the villa. It's in a nice location but you do benefit from having a car. It's nice and private and is very well equipped, I would recommend it to anybody.

Amazing holiday in a beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

We were very excited to book this villa for two families holidaying together. The virtual tour was great but doesn't do it justice until you see the real thing!

The pre-arrival information was very good and the owner was quick to answer questions and was flexible.

This Villa is absolutely beautiful and the owners have gone to great lengths to ensure that you have everything you need during your stay.

The poolside area is absolutely beautiful, spacious and the pool is large for a villa, with pleasantly warm water. Outside toilet and shower with hot and cold water was very useful.

The villa itself, has four good sized bedrooms. Two have newly fitted en-suites with separate shower and bath. The smaller two rooms share a newly fitted shower room. The kitchen is very large and everything has been thought through to provide everything you would need! There are more gadgets in the kitchen than I have ever seen!

The maid service was really great and she adapted around us.

The villa does not have air conditioning but even in August, we did not need it. There are ceiling fans and extra standing fans in two of the bedrooms. The other rooms would benefit from them but after feeding that back to the owner, this is something they plan to do.

The area of carvoeiro is beautiful and very family friendly. A car is needed. Fabulous beaches and restaurants.

All in all, we loved the villa and felt very comfortable there. We felt like the rich and famous!!!

Thank you for a wonderful experience in Portugal! We wished we didn't have to come home!!

Carvallo Alfanzina ( smugglers )

Benagil Benagil

Marinha Caramajeiro

Albandeira "


Faro airport is a 45 minute car journey from the Villa.Other airports including Lisbon and Seville are both around 2hrs 30 mins.

Though not essential we would recommend car hire to make the most of your trip.

Local taxi trips are not expensive and Airport charges are around 60 euros each way for max 4 persons or a preordered people carrier at about 80 euros each way for 5-8 persons.


By car distances to places of interest are;

Carvoeiro 5 mins - Shops, Banks, Cash Points, Pharmacy,Doctors,Bars


Silves 20 mins - Historic old capital of Algarve. Small town with Castle

Portimao 20 mins - Busy small city on the estuary with harbour and marina.

Lagos 30 mins - A busy historical town with marina and beaches

Cape St Vincent - 60 Mins Most westerly point in Europe Henry The Navigator fame.

Further Details:

For major shopping we recommend Intermarche, Aldi, Apolonia and Pingo Doce on the Lagoa road. Local supermarkets are expensive.

Golf : At Vale do Milho across the road. Only a par three but quite tricky and good for sharpening up your short game or if you have young aspiring golfers in your party. In the summer there is always a deal after about 4.00pm which is about when you want to play and clubs are available for hire.

Tennis: at Rocha Brava. Courts are for hire and coaching is available but there are also days when you can arrive and mix in.This used to be a favourite place for the young ones to meet and "hang out"

Slide and Splash- turn left at Lagoa crossroads and left at first roundabout. There are always deals to be looked out for here usually after 4.00pm

Zoo Marine: A childrens theme park about a 25 min drive on the Faro N125 road.

Restaurants: Always a moving feast and often dangerous to recommend, but here goes.

Walking Distance -

O Julio - Eat in the garden. Well established medium priced and nice people. Bottom of road on left.

O Rafiol- Dutch owned medium priced . Can be erratic. Up hill from Julio.

Jardim O Farol - Family run small and buzzy, always full of Rocha Brava guests. Medium priced decent value. Up hill past R.B on right.

Mona Lisa - Great pizzas with outside area .Popular with younger eaters. Bottom of hill turn right and on the bend at Centiennes beach

By Car :

O Algar - Benagil .I believe this is the best place to enjoy fresh fish in the area, but it also has an extensive non fish menu.Medium priced.

Primavera -Carvoeiro. Italian Pizza Pasta and everthing else. Big and attractive outside and inside restaurant. Modest to medium priced.

We would suggest that you have a look at our restaurant review book in the Villa. We try to keep abreast of our favourites with comments and include the names of some of those that are a bit more remote.
