Villa:Private Gated Pool (separate apartment) Sea Views set in large grounds



Updated: 04-Dec-2016
TOURIST LICENCE 12763/AL Villa in Carvoeiro, Western Algarve, - One of the finest locations in Carvoeiro and within walking distance of the village and beach

12763/AL:: This stunning villa is on three levels and is set in extensive grounds.

Well what can i say, this villa is fabulous. We came to this resort last year as well, but stayed in a smaller villa. This year both our daughters brought their boyfriends and as it was so big we didn't feel like we got under each others feet. It was lovely and clean and there were plenty of seating areas around the villa for you to escape, if needed. The pool was great and we ate a few of the oranges from the garden which were better than the supermarket ones, they were so sweet and juicy. We love Carveoiro and there are so many nice places to eat. Fernanda, the maid is so sweet, she is so quiet we didn't even know she was there. We really enjoyed Primavera, Taste, there is also a great Indian on the right as you walk up the hill, the staff are so friendly. The villa was only a 5 to 10 minute walk from the beach where ours hired a kayak for an hour, which was 20 euros. They also went to the water park, which they really enjoyed. That cost them 29 euros each and included the bus fare. I really hope we can return again, we enjoyed it so much. It was also in a nice quiet area.

Lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

six adults and two children stayed at the villa and it was suitable for all of us. The children, 3 and 5 year old, loved the pool and the fact it had a locked gate made it very safe. Plenty of space for the older adults if they needed a bit of me time. Very well furnished and all mod cons. The maid was delightful even though she got a fright coming across a toy snake left by the pool. Would recommend this property to anyone.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a lovely review. I am pleased you and the family enjoyed. I had to chuckle about the maid and the toy snake ... I can imagine her face! Everyone loves the maid and many just want to pack her up and bring her home.

Favourite Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Everything at the villa was perfect yet again. We have just returned from our 4th visit to CDSA. As usual we had a wonderful holiday with our children and their partners, a holiday full of fun and new experiences. The main reason for returning to this wonderful villa is its tranquility and the lovely space it has to offer. It is located in such a peaceful location and has all the necessary facilities for a relaxing stay. The villa is within walking distance to the beach and has numerous restaurants and bars in the town a perfect balance for us. Fernanda the maid does an excellent job of keeping the villa clean and is very friendly. Even though the average temperature was 35 degrees we found the villa to be cool and airy. We all look forward to hopefully return next year.

Fantastic family holiday in a wonderful setting

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful property ideal for large groups. The villa is of an older style but this gives it a lot of character. The gated pool really appealed as we have younger children and this gave us peace of mind. There are lots of secluded seating areas outside so plenty of chances to escape for a few minutes to enjoy a cold drink in the sun. The villa is at the top of the hill so there is a short (ish) but steep walk to and from town but we didn't find it too bad. There are plenty of small supermarkets and restaurants within walking distance so a car isn't essential. The weather was amazing as it usually is (at least it has been for us for the 6 or so times that we have been to the Algarve). Fernanda the maid is wonderful although a lot of sign language is needed if you aren't fluent in Portuguese. Overall, a fantastic time was had in a wonderful villa. The semi-outdoor eating area is great and it has lovely sea views. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: We thank this client for taking the time to do such a lovely review. It is comforting to know that a client of many years who has visited several properties rented by me enjoyed yet another one. We have made the remark before .. that is all clients just wish they could take the maid home !

Perfect summer home from home

  • 5 of 5

As usual, everything in the villa, which is very well equipped, ,pwas of a very high standard. Kevin and Denise have worked very hard during the year with the changes they have made. The villa is fabulous. It is exceptionally clean and spacious with plenty of relaxing areas to enjoy. Fernanda the maid carries on with her work quietly as does the gardener and pool man. We have just returned from our 3rd stay at CDSA. It is situated in a perfect location for us as a family as nobody wants to drive. We enjoy the peace and tranquility the villa offers. More often than not we walk into town once or twice a day and don't find the hill much of a problem. We enjoy our daily fix of coffee at Matabixo and have our favourite resteraunts that we visit yearly. We can recommend Primavera, Taste, the Indian and Elle and Ella. However, we always book as there are normally 7 of us. Our children (19, 20 and 26) and friends enjoy the nightlife around Mungo's, Round Up and Rascals. They normally bump into friends that they have made over the years! We would definitely, recommend the villa to our friends and we hope to return in 2016 and for years to come. Thank you.
