We have been taking self catering villa holidays in Europe for 20 or so years and this villa has to rank as one of the finest. Quality fixtures and fittings, wonderfully comfortable bed (not always the case on holiday) and UK TV should you not wish to miss your favourite programmes, that's if you can drag yourself away from the pool. We have been to Carvoeiro 4 times over the years as it is well placed for fabulous beaches etc together with many good eateries. The villa is a short walk into the "village" and even in 28 degree heat it was an easy and pleasant stroll. Would recommend Casa Traquila without hesitation
We've just returned from the most amazing holiday in the fabulous Casa Tranquila. The villa is incredible - stylish, spacious and with every home comfort you could wish for. The pool and terraces are beautiful and it was hard to drag ourselves away, but the location is also ideal - just a short walk to the bars, restaurants, shops, banks and the beach. And with large supermarkets and attractions such as Slide and Splash and Zoomarine within a short (and easy) drive, what more could you want from a family holiday?. We felt at home immediately and it was very hard to leave at the end of our stay. Yvette was really helpful and gave us loads of useful information in the run up to the holiday. Best holiday ever!!
There are a lot of places that get a 5* rating on here - this is one that truly deserves it!
From the really helpful owners answering my questions before my arrival to the fantastic villa itself through to a pleasant and stress free check out - all was great
The villa itself is wonderful. The outside is architecturally stunning and gives you some ideas as to the delights awaiting inside. A fantastic entrance area housing a hidden away utility area leads you up to the open plan living area and bedrooms at the opposite end of the villa
The kitchen/dining/living area is a delight - wonderfully fresh and airy with every little necessity and luxury you could hope for. Special mention here to the wine fridge which we particularly liked! The wifi and TV/DVD are all up to date and faultless so kids (and bigger kids) are well catered for too (many DVDs and books are provided too by the thoughtful owners)
The two bedrooms are both ensuite and are of a high quality. Good size, built in, wardrobes absorb anything and everything leaving plenty of space to lounge around in. TV with UK television in both bedrooms for those that need their fix
The real joy of Casa Tranquila is, however, outside. The private pool is of a good size and the 3 (yes 3!) terraces offer up something different for all the family - also allowing sun-worshippers to move around the villa to keep out of the shade
The property is 10-15 minutes from the town centre with a lovely little bakery 5 minutes walk away where you can pick up great bread and sweet treats. The resort is packed full of nice bars and restaurants many of which are delightful - our favourite was A'Gale with a special mention to Villa Medici (both on 'Restaurant Hill'). There is a small convenience store in town or, if you have a car or order a taxi, there are 2 large supermarkets up the road away from the resort itself
All-in-all wonderful. Go on, book it now - you won't regret it :)
Fabulous villa, with everything indoor and outdoor that you could ever need. Owners Yvette extremely helpful and accommodating, location was spot on, short walk to shops and restaurants. We will be back!! Thank you.xx
