About Elizabeth Cooke

I was enchanted by the village of Carvoeiro when I came to live here 17 years ago. I love the changing seasons which attracts different visitors. The Summer brings the hustle and bussle of happy holiday makers, enjoying the live music on the square, the warm ocean and the beautiful sandy beaches. The Autumn feels like a second Spring in the year when I take my dogs on my favourite walks along the cliffs. I love the flowers that bloom in this period of the year. In Winter time I concentrate on conquering the never ending challenge of golf. When the Spring time comes, this encourages me to take out my paint brush to capture the beauty of the emerging spring flowers. All year long I so enjoy meeting friends for a light lunch or a glass of wine at one of the delightful terraces.

Elizabeth Cooke purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Elizabeth Cooke chose Carvoeiro

I came upon Casa Eliza purely by chance and fell in love with it. The roof terrace is wonderful with fabulous views of the sea and Carvoeiro. All this only less than a 5 minute walk from the village square.

What makes this apartment unique

The unique location of the apartment in the vicinity of beach, bars and restaurants makes your holiday effortless. The large sweeping balcony around two sides of the property and a spacious roof terrace of 45 square meters, makes Casa Eliza perfect for dining, relaxing on a sun bed or just enjoying the amazing views.

The swimming pool with sun lounges includes a paddle pool and is on your doorstep. It is only shared by 12 apartments.

The roomy apartment is well equipped for all your needs to help make your holiday stress free, happy and memorable.

Best family holiday ever!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a week at Casa Eliza. It simply wasn't long enough. The apartment was just perfect. The location was amazing. Close enough to everything but just far enough away from the square so that the noise in the evenings didn't disturb us. We loved it so much that we booked for 2 weeks next year before we had even left. Roll on next summer!

We were stunned by how perfect the apartment was, it really is luxurious. It is even better than the photographs. The roof terrace is an added bonus, just perfect. We have already booked for 4 weeks next year. Liz is lovely and eager to attend to any issues (not that we had any) and the welcome pack was a nice surprise.

Have just come back from staying at Liz's apartment and have to say that the apartment was absolutely amazing. Everything was immaculate and the roof terrace was fantastic to enjoy a glass of wine and soak up the rays. Liz was an absolute delight to deal with from initial enquiry to checking out and the welcome pack was a bonus. I just now have to find a slot to book for next year. Lee

Probably the best 1 bedroom on the Algarve

  • 5 of 5

We have opted for self-catering apartments in preference to hotels for years now, and we have to say this place knocks all others into a cocked hat as far as quality in concerned. It's superb in every department: location, facilities and warmth of welcome. If proof is needed, try and find a clear week to book this place out next year !. The main season is booked out completely, and almost certainly by returning guests. Lovely, lovely apartment , worth every penny.
