Photos and Description of this Mato Serrão holiday bungalow

2 twin bedrooms (sleeps 4/5), equipped for self-catering. Outside terraces, BBQ

Our bungalow is set in a quiet location on a lively complex with excellent facilities (e.g. swimming pools, tennis courts, children's activities/clubs, evening entertainment, bars, restaurants, shop)

The kitchen is of an older style but is clean, fully functional and very well equipped with hob/oven, fridge-freezer and microwave and a good range of crockery and cutlery. there are also many restaurants nearby within easy walking distance.

In the lounge there is a breakfast bar, sofa & arm chairs, TV/DVD Player and a log fire (redundant during the summer, but wonderful if you're staying during the winter months)

The bedrooms each have two comfortable single beds which can be pushed together, there are fans for the summer and heaters for the winter. There's plenty of hanging space for clothes.

There are new privacy/security shutters fitted with mosquito nets on all windows.

We have an excellent maid who visits daily Mon-Fri and everything is provided except beach towels.

Chill Factor 10

  • 5 of 5

My Wife and have stayed at this place many times and instantly chill out each time we arrive. The accommodation is more than adequate to meet holiday needs with good beds and a spacious lounge. Add in the enclosed patio with BBQ, cooking at home with a bottle of wine is bliss. Alternatively there is a good range of restaurants not far away. Best of these is known as the 'Ritz', at 9.5 euro's ahead all in it is unbeatable value if you are on a budget. You need directions from the owner to find it as it is tucked away but is not far from the villa. The town centre is a bit of walk but if you suffer mobility issues, there is a regular minibus service from the site so this is not an issue. We love this place and would recommend it to anyone

Would go back again and again

  • 4 of 5

This pretty holiday bungalow is the most excellent place to stay if you are visiting the Algarve, and its great for families. Within walking distance of Carvoeiro although the return journey is steeply uphill (!) this great little town is full of multitudinous restaurants bars and eateries and also interesting shops. The bungalow is situated on a pleasant and peaceful complex with some accessible swimming pools for all ages, and also a lovely pizzeria nearby. There is also a small shop and pool bar. The bungalow is comfy and homely and has plenty of equipment as well as character and a lovely garden setting. The beauty of it is that it would suit literally all ages - I have visited with small children and their grandparents also love it. Would go back again in a heartbeat.

Great choice, great hollydays

  • 5 of 5

We spent a great time in Marian's lovely house. Me and my family are from Lisbon and already use to spend some time in Carvoeiro at summer. Marian's home was a great choice this year and we loved to stay there!

Our girls loved the pool and we enjoyed... everything.

Highly recommended!

Our apartment is set on the Quinta Do Paraiso which is a well-established fully comprehensive complex with pools, tennis courts, bars, restaurants, shop, etc.

Just a short walk away is Carvoeiro; a small town set around a cove beach between the naturally sculpted sandstone cliffs of the Algarve. The town itself has a good range of shops and some excellent restaurants but also serves as an ideal central base for exploring the Algarve.

Within 10 minutes drive you can reach the towns of Portimão and Silves (A Historic Moorish stronghold).

There are numerous and varied attractive beaches, water parks and sea-life centres, and shopping centres - most are within a 15 minute drive.

Less than an hour's drive to the west you can reach the most South-Westerly point in Europe (Cape St Vincent) and an hour's drive to the east lies the Spanish-Portuguese border. To the north you can visit Monchique; the highest point on the Algarve with some stunning views

Additional information about rental rates

Fees No additional mandatory fees

Pre/post -Summer rate is fully inclusive based on 4 people sharing. We will offer a discount if there are only 2 people.
Please contact us to discuss the price if you'd like a bed for a 5th person.
The weather at this time of year is usually reasonably warm, there can be some rain during the earlier part of the season, but the sun often shines.
During the peak Summer period, the rate is fully inclusive based on between 1 and 4 people sharing.
If you'd like a bed for a 5th person please contact us to discuss.
The summer weather in the Algarve can get extremely hot - It's not unusual to have clear blue skies and sunshine for days in a row. The sea at this time is a lovely temperature for swimming. This is definitely a time for perfect beach weather and sun cream is absolutely essential.
Late Season is fully inclusive based on 4 people sharing although the price is negotiable depending on when you are going and for how long. We will also offer a discount if there are only two people staying.
Please contact us to discuss the price if you'd like a bed for a 5th person.
Towards the end of the season, the weather can become a little wetter but it is still normally comfortably warm during the day with the temperature only dropping off a bit in the evenings. It can still be a lovely time of year to visit the Algarve and if you're unlucky enough to hit a cold spell, then our cosy log fire will still make for a relaxing holiday.
