About Rob

As we grow older, we want to spend more time with our gorgeous family in Uk, three children and 9 grandchildren. Much as we absolutely love this way of life,( we have lived the dream), we are so missing our adorable family. So, we have decided to spend more time with them and give some people the chance to enjoy our villa . We will still enjoy the warm sunny winters here. Rob is taking over the property and will rent it out.

Rob purchased this villa in 2006

Why Rob chose Mato Serrão

Carvoeiro is such a charming place to be. Everyone is so friendly and there are no high rise apartments. The area of Carvoeiro Club is very attractive with the beautiful individual villas set in large grounds. It is very peaceful, while still having all the social amenities. The cliff walks are very calming and only minutes away.

What makes this villa unique

At the height of summer we can sometimes hear the distant night music from Carvoeiro village, and still have tranquillity. There are stunning sea views ànd fantastic cliff walks. Many restaurants and bars within easy walking distance and tennis courts and golf nearby. The BBQ and summer kitchen provide excellent facilities for those special outdoor meals..

Summer break

  • 4 of 5

This is a very peaceful relaxing location. The villa offers everything that you need for a comfortable stay. Garden and pool maintained every other day and cleaning service once a week. Great local restaurants nearby which are walking distance. If you want to just laze by the pool or go to the beach we would recommend this villa. You will need a car though if you want to venture out to other areas. Thank you so much Mick and Alice for letting us stay in your lovely Villa. The wades 👍😄

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind response. A car would be a great asset for visiting local places, such a busy Portimao, from where lots of boat trips depart ,and there are many shops, and also the quaint village of Ferraguda ( although, the scenic train travels from Carvoeiro to Ferraguda , stays for a few hours, and then returns ) .Here you can take a water taxi to Praia De Rocha. Carvoeiro is ideally situated to access the Monchique Mountains with lots of spectacular views, and eating places offering their famous "Chicken Piri Piri".

Lovely property

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 8 stayed here for two weeks and had a lovely relaxing holiday, I would recommend an hire car if we stayed here again although we did use a local friendly and safe taxi company for our many trips to Carvoeiro, Farraguda, Intermarche and slide and spalsh etc. Probably a 15 to 20 minute walk up hill to the nearest mini market where you can get lovely fresh rolls, croissants and pain au chocolat a few times a day. Villa is set in beautiful, tranquil surroundings with many trees surrounding the property keeping it very private. The garden area is quite large with many different areas if you like shade. Garden and pool areas are well maintained with regular visits from the gardeners and pool mainteneance. Outdoor seating area is brilliant and we used this frequently along with the lovely bbq and summer kitchen which has all the facilities you will need. The bedrooms and bathrooms are all large, with large fitted wardrobes in them and also large bathrooms as well. Lovely views of garden, sea and pool from the different bedrooms. Plenty of sunbeds and space around the pool area. Slightly further to Carveoiro than we expected and would probably take about 30 minutes with children which is fine but will be mostly up hill on the return. Lovely restaurant across the road at the tennis club with a fixed price menu of 9.50 euros over lunch and 12.50 for dinner for 3 courses which also includes a drink. Would not hesitate to stay here again and we all had a lovely and relaxing time.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your complimentary Revue. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay in our villa. Car hire is very useful for your visits to Intermarches's large supermarket , and places like Slide and Splash and nearby Ferraguda and Portimao. Small children and the "not so mobile" older person would appreciate a car . Carvoeiro Club Tenis offers many services, even a hairdresser and beautician, along with their state of the art new Gymnasium and Tennis courts. Other food places are in walking distance, offering English, Portugues Italian and continental dishes, and not forgetting the local café for snacks etc..

A great trip and the villa made it perfect

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in Casa Suska with 8 friends. The villa is spacious and very beautiful. The villa is located in a quiet area and you have sea views from the second floor balcony (even better from the roof). We were surprised by the size of the garden, it is very well looked after and the villa owners have done a very nice job with it.

Definitely recommend staying there.

Thank you.

Owner's Response: With the villa having different terraces and the garden having many nooks and crannies, it provides beautiful areas to take in the glorious sunshine and to enjoy perfect dappled leafy shade when not cooling off in the swimming pool, all this giving peace and tranquillity behind the gates. Once through the gates there are many restaurants, bars and cafe's etc to suit all pockets . Sporting facilities, tennis,gym and crazy golf golf courses all only minutes away.

Paraiso and Carvoeiro beaches are approx. 15/20 mins walk, but there are many other in the vicinity. Carvoeiro beach is a walk on, with no steps, and many bars and restaurants in close proximity. Live music and entertainment is provided on the square.


Faro airport is 40 mins drive away. A hire car is not essential for anyone who loves a short walk into the village, but would recommend one for convenience and the older generation, and very young children. There are many taxis available which are very reasonably priced. Eating and drinking establishments are within easy walking distance.

Further Details:

Carvoeiro Club, opposite, has just had a major refurbishment, and offers fantastic leisure facilities. Tennis courts and tuition available. New apparatus in the large gym,young childrens play area, with 2 pools and snack bar. Exquisite restaurant and bar.
