Fabulous Villa

  • 5 of 5

I booked this villa based on the photos online and description however on arrival we couldn't believe our luck. It was our first time renting a villa and we were so lucky. The place is amazing. Spotless. Had everything. Pool was gorgeous. Plenty of sunbeds. Free wifi. Satellite TV. There were 5 of us staying there altogether. 3 adults and 2 children. Kids loved it. We all loved it. On arrival there was a bottle of wine, fresh bread, biscuits, water waiting for us. Janice called up to us the day after our arrival to make sure everything was ok and she was lovely. Honestly I would highly recommend staying here. We rented a car which I think you would probably need. We weren't too far from the village but if you needed to get supermarket supplies etc it might be too hot to walk and carry bags back. Other than that everything was perfect. Thank you so much Janice and Mark for such a lovely stay.

D&B Ireland

Beautiful well equipped and laid out villa. Mark and Jan met us on arrival and had a welcome pack of essentials incl nice chilled bottle of wine. All mod cons and very spacious pool area (photos don't do it justice). Carvoeiro is a 10 min walk downhill which is quite shady. Steep uphill but taxis typically €5. We discovered a small shop just around the corner from the villa that had fresh croissants & baguettes each morning. Rubbish and recycle bins also just around the corner. This was our second year in Carvoeiro with our 20's kids and they love it and were impressed with the quality of the wifi in the villa. Would highly recommend a family holiday in Carvoeiro and this villa is a perfect base.

Amazing Villa, Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Fab villa, quiet area, secluded with nothing overlooking it. Well equipped really with everything you need. Bedrooms, bathrooms, pool and outside all great. Only thing we missed was aircon. Fans in every bedroom but still warm during the night in the hot months. Free WiFi which as a family with teenage children was great. Sky & DVDS are limited so would advise taking your own DVDS if you want to watch TV. Its 10-15 mins downhill walk to the centre of Carvoeiro. Rather a steep hill down and up again but not too bad if you're prepared for it. If you have a car, park at the bottom of the hill and then drive back to the villa via the centre if you don't fancy the hill walk. Its zero tolerance with driving so don't risk a drink if you're driving. Its only 5 euros for a taxi back from Carvoeiro. The beach and surrounding areas with restaurants and gift shops are fab. There are lots of restaurants to fit all prices. There is live music every night in the centre by the beach in the summer months. If you hire a car (talking from experience) make sure you're aware of the Portugese rules BEFORE you get there ie no driving in flip flops, always having your passport and paperwork with you plus what to do in an accident etc. The roads are not as clear as the UK and road markings can be very hither dither so make sure you're clued up. The Intermarche is a large supermarket up the N124 road which is a 5 min drive and is good for everything especially cheap inflatables but Aldi further up the N124 in Lagoa and Lidl in Portimao (on the west coastal road) are a bit cheaper with a more limited option. If you're driving to the villa from Faro Airport on a night have an up-to-date satnav or Google maps as the roads can be quite confusing if you're not used to them. The A22 is an automatic toll road but you can use the N125 instead but again make sure you have a good satnav. Jan and Mark the villa managers are great. They arranged a fab birthday cake for my daughter while we were there and dealt with a minor issue immediately too so if you're having any celebratory occasions or need any help before or while you're there just give them a shout. We could have stayed for much longer at this villa and in Carvoeiro and we were very sorry to leave so early despite spending 10 days there. We'll definitely go back. We are surprised there aren't more reviews of the villa and hope that our positive review helps people decide this is a lovely place to stay.

The nearest airport is Faro International Airport.

A hire car is not essential but is highly recommended in order to visit the coastal beaches of the Algarve. A taxi from Faro to the villa costs approximately Euros 65
