Lovely villa, ideal for 2 families sharing

  • 5 of 5

This is a very well-equipped villa with plenty of room for 4 adults and 5 children. It is in a very secluded spot, accessed by a rough track, which meant we didn't have to worry about noise when the children were in the swimming pool and could really relax. We paid a bit extra for pool heating - well worth it at the end of October, plus there is plenty of outdoor lighting for swimming after dark.

The villa has lovely views, a pretty little garden, plenty of parking and both inside and out there are plenty of seating areas to break out to if you want a bit of space. The kitchen was equipped with most of the things that we required (there was no coffee pot / cafetiere if you like fresh coffee) with a washing machine and dishwasher too. There are 3 bath/shower rooms, a cloakroom and hand, bath and beach towels were all provided.

An additional bonus was that the villa also has lots of extras such as books, DVD's and a few toys and games which kept us amused for the week. There are tennis rackets available for the tennis court (although the grips have worn, so we made do with socks over the handles). Balls are available to buy from a nearby tennis centre, although the children managed to lose ours over the fence within 2 days. The villa owner was very helpful with lots of suggestions with places to visit and restaurants to eat at, and dealt with any questions quickly and cleaners came in twice during the week.

To sum up, we all had a wonderful week and would definitely book again if we go back to Carvoeiro.

Fantastic Family Villa

  • 5 of 5

Excellent villa proved to be the best villa we have stayed in so far and we have stayed in quite a few over the years. The villa has everything you need for a large family and it caters for both adults and children (the children loved the pool, lego, books and spongebob DVD). Everything was in really good condition and the pool was fantastic. Geoff was very helpful and knowing that he was there if we needed anything was great. Thanks again Geoff for letting us use your fantastic villa we loved it. Brenda and family.

Very large well maintained and impressive villa

  • 5 of 5

Really lovely spacious villa, which really suited 6 adults and 4 children. Lovely pool area with plenty of seating areas, loungers and outside dining area . Villa had all mod cons with plenty of cutlery, table wear and glasses . Tennis court a great bonus. Geoff was very helpful as well as Fernanda and the ladies who came 3 times a week to clean were really good. The property was very clean and very well maintained. Villa is situated about 15 mins walk to restaurant hill ,where there is a multiple choice of restaurants. Villa was situated at the end of a small track but didn't cause us any difficulty . We would definitely go back to this lovely spacious and well appointed Villa. Would highly recommend this villa to friends & family. Thanks Geoff for all your help.

great house good location

  • 5 of 5

we had an amazing stay at this lovely villa, its great if you have a large family or a group, the pool and views are lovely,

only fault was as we were getting ready to leave we had the front door open to put the cases in the car and the cleaning staff walked in without knocking and started to clean the house, one of our members was still in the bathroom check out time was 10am this happened at 9.20, we felt this was really rude and we had to hurry up and leave

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

This Villa ticks all the right boxes. It is in a great location and not over looked. We had a lovely family holiday and it really did cater for adults and children alike. Thank you to Geoff & Jo who advised us about lovely restaurants & beaches that would be suitable for the children. The Villa is very spacious and clean. We will be returning hopefully soon.
