The Algarve region
The Algarve coast, in the south of Portugal, is its best-known region for beaches, warm seas and all the ingredients for a good family holiday but other areas of this very friendly country are having increasing appeal. Two hours and 30 minutes flying from the UK opens up a country of mountains, plains and picturesque coastline.
The Algarve remains the top pick for British family holidays, mainly down to its consistently good beach resorts along a coast stretching from the Spanish border to Cape St Vincent. Families know that places such as Albufeira, Carvoeiro, Praia de Rocha and Lagos not only have sandy beaches but also safe bathing, good child-friendly restaurants and quality accommodation. In recent years more accommodation has been developed in the hinterland in the coastal mountains and offering cool higher altitudes and excellent views. It is here that holidaymakers can take a break from sunbathing with arts and crafts’ shopping at Loule or exploring the spa town of Monchique
While summer temperatures can reach 30C plus, the Atlantic breezes on the western and southern coasts make Portugal’s climate comfortable, especially for children. Like most tourist-orientated countries Portugal’s restaurants have adopted visitor tastes and many dishes on menus will be familiar, local cuisine makes much of sardines, tuna, anchovies and seafood.
Carvoeiro is a picturesque fishing village which still retains its local Portuguese character and charm. It is situated just 50 minutes along the main coast road West of Faro airport and is set in the hillside overlooking its own pretty beach dotted with fishing boats.There are several other beautiful beaches nearby such as Centianes and Benagil and the waters around Algar Secos rock formation are ideal for snorkelling. There are many local shops and minimarkets, a pharmacy, banks, doctors clinic, butchers, bakers, and newsagents, as well as a large Sainsburys style supermarket just outside the town.
Although small, Carvoeiro has many bars and restaurants, who all welcome children and offer children's menus. The town is fairly lively in the evenings, but remains an ideal place for couples or families alike,with restaurants for all tastes and pockets and plenty of friendly bars. There is also a small piazza called Monte Carvoeiro near to the complex with several restaurants where you can experience a stone steak, cooking your own steak on a hot stone. There are even 2 nightclubs for late birds or teenagers and taxis are easy to pick up from the taxi rank in the centre of the town.
Carvoeiro is within easy reach of Portimao with its harbour and famous sardine restaurants, the historic town of Silves, the Monchique mountains and 35 mins from Albufeira, the liveliest resort on the Algarve. Slide & Splash water park is 10 minutes drive and The Big One water park and the popular Zoo Marine with dolphin and seal shows are approximately 20 minutes drive.
There are two golf courses in Carvoeiro, Quinta do Gramacho and a 9 hole course on the Vale do Milho development. The championship course at Penina is a 20 minute drive, Vilamoura a 35 minute drive and Vale do Lobo a 40 minute drive. Tennis can be booked at the Quinta do Paraiso, Carvoeiro Club and Rocha Brava. Swimming, scuba diving and deep-sea fishing are all available.

Thank you for your lovely review, it was a pleasure to have you at Casa Patinho and we are glad you had such a wonderful time. We think when you say the beach was 'rough' you were referring to the sea(!) as Carvoeiro has a beautiful little beach but the waves can occasionally be rough. However there are many other sheltered beaches for children. Thank you again, we hope we can welcome you back again soon.

We stayed at the villa for a week in April a family of 6 including children 21,18,16 and 12. The villa is decorated and furnished to a very good standard with everything you need for a good holiday. … More
Thank you for your lovely review of Casa Patinho, we are glad you enjoyed your holiday. There is usually a supply of tea bags, condiments etc. in the villa and we now offer an arrival pack for guests if they wish. Although there are twin beds in the master bedroom they are pushed together to create a double (or not!)and this has never proved to be a problem for guests. Thank you again for your kind review, we hope to welcome you back again in the future.

We had a absolutly fantastic time at Casa Patinho and would love to visit again. We found the accomodation to be spacious and tidy and loved sitting out in the evening enjoying the barbecue facilities once the kids had gone to bed.
We made great use of the swimming facilities during the day which were never crowded and regularly made the short walk to the beach and town centre where there was always a great atmosphere.
Many thanks to the owners who made sure that our trip was relaxing and hassle free even with three children under four!
