This is one of the best villas we have rented.
Around 40 mins from the airport, you arrive to a long driveway and view of the beautiful, green garden.
The villa is large, spacious and really well equipped. We only ate out three times during our week stay so was more than happy with how well equipped the kitchen was as I was cooking for 8 each time! We used the BBQ twice during our stay too.
There’s lots of seating areas which is great for people wanting full on sunshine or some shade.
The bedrooms were comfortable and all en-suite which was a lovely bonus. There were lots of towels plus beach towels. The towels were changed during our stay by lovely Maria who came in every day to clean and make our beds! :)
The lounge area had a cupboard of board games and access to UK TV channels. My son even got to watch the Champions League final from the comfort of his armchair!
The swimming pool is by Far this villa’s crown jewel! If you have kids with you (we had 4 ranging from 8-13) then prepare for them to be in it the majority of the stay! They even swam at night in there! There were inflatables and sinkers etc for them to play with and they were in and out of the pool every day. They loved it as did we. The pool man came in every other day so it was always lovely and clean.
We paid the extra to have it heated and it was definitely worth doing.
The villa is in a really quiet neighbourhood around 10 mins from Carveiro where all the restaurants, shops and the beach is. It’s down hill to the town and uphill home - maybe don’t do the walk back in the height of the mid day sun!
There is a mini market 5 mins down the road which is great for fresh bread but get there early as it runs out quickly.
The Intermarche is a massive, fabulous supermarket an 8 min drive away (we also walked there one day - 25 mins and not recommended with kids due to a lack of pavements!) it was on average an €8 taxi trip. The choice is great and we did two shops during our stay. The meat and fish counters plus the bakery are really good. Prices were reasonable too.
We saw the beach in the evening but didn’t visit it during the day so can’t comment on this. The swimming pool was enough for the kids. We also didn’t hire a car as we just wanted a complete chill out which is what we got.
Had such a lovely week, we didn’t want to come home!
First time to this lovely area and a great private villa with everything a family or group would need. Very clean and welcoming. We couldn’t fault it!
Many local restaurants with plenty of choice for everyone along with a beautiful beech a short stroll away. Perfect.
Thank you, see you next year!
Just returned home from an amazing time at this fantastic villa. Couldn’t have asked for more, great location just a short walk from plenty of restaurants, bars and the beach. The villa was spotless and has a good sized heated swimming pool.
Also only a short cab journey to an array of superb golf courses.
Overall couldn’t fault it, would defo return.
Beautiful well kept villa with plenty of space both inside and outside, short walk into local town and beach, would defiantly recommend for both families and group of friends
Lovely villa located in a quiet area with the local bars and restaurants in town only a 10min walk or cheap Uber ride away. Will definitely be going back!
