My husband and I spent two wonderful weeks in this apartment with our teenage son and older daughter. It ticked all our boxes as regards location and amenities. The apartment itself was spotlessly clean with quality furniture and fittings and was very spacious with two balconies; we enjoyed eating together as a family and also being able to use the second balcony for quiet reading. The apartment is on the 3rd floor (two lifts) at the rear so very peaceful in spite of Carvoeiro's lively atmosphere. The area also felt very "safe" and, indeed, our older children were happy to explore without our supervision. Our daughter is an occasional wheelchair user and the apartment entrance area was sufficiently spacious to accommodate her wheelchair. This is the first family holiday where we did not feel the need to hire a car as everything we needed was on the doorstep and when we travelled further afield we used taxis (very reasonable) or public buses (to Portimao). I would imagine the dedicated car parking space would be ideal if one had hired a car. The managers responded promptly to any queries we had, recommending excellent eateries and relevant local information. To sum up, a truly fantastic holiday.
apartment lovely very smart outside shops pubs and restaurants on the doorstep went for a special birthday she picked a India restaurant for a meal was very nice opposite the round up salon Harry's bar and sullies good bars went to Alvor in a taxi for the day good day out overall lovely holiday
This was our first visit to Carvoeiro. We loved it, we would come back again. Everything is on your doorstep. Bars restaurants shops also a lovely beach. Try the train round this lovely village you can see a lot. Try Harry's Bar opposite apartment Sue and Arron very helpful and friendly. Enjoy your stay, we did.
My wife and I stayed here last year for a week with some friends and it was one of the best holidays we have had. Carvoeiro itself is lovely with its nearby beach, great restaurants and many little bars. The moment we arrived we felt relaxed. We got a transfer from Faro direct to the apartment which took about 45 minutes (we booked online – its worth searching around a bit). The location of the apartment is ideal – central enough to enjoy everything the village has to offer but not located where you will get disturbed. It is also furnished to a very high standard with all electrical appliances we needed including the dish washer and washing machine. We really liked the fact that the apartment has two bathrooms which made it handy for us to use one of them and our friends to use the other. There are two balconies which are accessible from each room (one balcony for the living room and kitchen and one balcony for the two bedrooms) and there was ample room for us to sit outside on an evening and eat a meal there. Walking to all of the bars are restaurants was not an issue at all with Harry’s bar being opposite the apartment we soon became regulars in there most evenings! Booking the place was easy, efficient and we were offered a food parcel on arrival also. We would definitely recommend the apartment! Thank you

My family (me, hubby, two small kids and my elderly Dad) stayed in the apartment last year in July for 10 days and it was absolutely perfect! We have stayed in Carvoeiro before and love the place but have sometimes struggled to find apartments which we big enough for us all and which we not at the top of a hill (specifically a problem for my Dad who uses a wheelchair to get out and about). This place however was perfect! The apartment itself is on the only flat road in the town which made it a doddle for the kids in pushchairs as well as my Dad in the wheelchair (there is also a lift as the apartment is on the 3rd floor). The place itself is spotless, really beautifully decorated and fully equipped. We actually spent many of our nights sitting on the balcony having a wine and playing cards – totally cosy and a genuine home away from home! The apartment is also on the back of the building so there is no noise from the street to disturb you at night which was a definite bonus compared to some places! The location is also perfect – lots of really nice cafes and bars on the same street as the apartment and also the beach is literally a 5 minute walk away. The beach was also great for my Dad as it has wheelchair access (also a rarity) and the local lifeguard was also very helpful in offering to help my Dad into the sea if he wanted to. Overall we had a great holiday and will definitely be back!
