Casa Tranquila is a new villa in a prime location with wonderful vistas across the valley and towards the sea. The interior is a clever combination of traditional décor with modern functionality and comfort even for the most discerning traveller. The architectural use of shapes generates light and space and captures the ambience of this delightful southern climate. The property has been built high within the plot to provide the maximum views, coupled with privacy and peace. There is a large drive way and easy steps to take you to the hand made wooden door. You enter the property and immediately note the particularly wide oak and steel floating staircase which takes you up to the accommodation. The property has cleverly been split into two wings. One where you will find the bedroom suites and the other the social areas. Also off the airy corridor is a cloakroom.
The sitting room over looks the terrace and pool area with views to the valley and sea. High quality porcelain floor tiles have been used throughout to create a luxurious feel both inside and out on the terraces. There are 2 sumptuous leather sofas, one with a full size sofa bed and dining table/6 chairs. There is a breakfast bar with 4 stools. You will also find a 40” LCD TV with freesat installed/Apple box and a DVD player/internet available. There is air conditioning/heating installed which can be utilised at the flick of the remote control. There is an iPod docking station and speakers provided. The pool is built into the raised terrace area that can be entered from the sitting room or the open plan kitchen corridor. There is high quality rattan table and chairs, together with 6 sun loungers, parasols and a gas BBQ for your enjoyment.
Inside the property is another flight of stairs that currently takes you to the highest point of the property which is presently set up as a large terrace over both bedroom suites.
The bedrooms can either be accessed by using the bridge which joins the raised pool terrace to the large bedroom terrace or of course, inside the villa. There are two bedroom suites – one with a king size bed, dressing table/mirror and 32" LCD TV with freesat. There is a spacious bathroom with twin sinks, large walk in shower and WC. On entry to the master suite you will find a large section of wardrobes one housing a digital safe. In the twin bedroom there is a large wardrobe, 32" LCD TV with freesat, dressing table/mirror. The twin ensuite has a large walk in shower, bidet, WC and sink. Both bathrooms have large curved chrome towel radiators. The fixtures in the bathrooms are a very high standard. The twin room, like the master has solid oak furniture and high quality mattresses with Egyptian cotton linen as well as Egyptian cotton towels and pool towels.
There is a sofa, 2 armchairs and coffee table for use on the outside bedroom terrace. Both bedrooms have large patio doors.
Overall, this property is ideal in location for those not looking to rely on a car and is stunning in design and furnishings.

We do not believe the words or the pictures in this advert go anywhere near to showing off how wonderful this villa is, albeit we may be a little biased. You will not find another villa like Casa Tranquila. People recenty staying have described it in private emails to us as "Fantastico" "felt like movie stars" "did not want to leave". Do read our reviews. We already have many repeat guests, even though the property has only been rented now for a year. Our property may not be appropriate for very active toddlers due to being built one storey up and there is no pool fence.
The kitchen is large and airy and partially open plan. You can create many culinary delights as you will find all manner of equipment, including fan assisted oven, combination microwave, ceramic hob, wine cupboard, 3 separate sinks, beautiful granite worktops, large breakfast bar. High quality pans, crockery, cutlery and various small electrical appliances, including juicer, Krups (Nepresso) coffee machine, toaster, sandwich toasting machine and all manner of day to day utensils and other electrical items can also be found in this kitchen. In addition there is also a large capacity washing machine and dryer installed in the villa.

Steps take you down to the garden, which is landscaped in Mediterranean style. The villa is built on a slope which lends itself to various terraces with plantings and large rocks which surround the entire villa. You can enter the garden from the bedroom terrace steps or from the kitchen. There is large driveway with ample parking for several cars. There is a large rotary clothes line in the garden. The pool house is installed under the pool terrace, which means none of the usual noisy pool equipment associated with many villas that usually have them intalled on the same terrace. The pool is salt water and not chlorine so better for you. We have specialist equipment installed that It is self dosing as well as visits from our pool maintenance man of course.
English speaking villa management on hand, maid service available. High chair and cot can be made available. If you have a lively toddler our villa may not be suitable as there are various areas where little ones may enjoy climbing. Please do study the photos.
Availability calendar shows dates booked in orange, green available to rent and in grey where we are waiting for the booking deposit. If you want to book during the reserved periods please let us know and we can up-date you.
The property rental price DOES NOT include the 3.5% (approx.) we are charged should you wish to pay via PAYPAL. Please note we will need to pass on the fee we are charged, which would need to be paid direct to our bank account. We do hope you understand.
Sunday check in by special arrangement only.
The Algarve region
The Algarve has many days of unbroken sunshine with high temperatures in the summer cooled with the breeze from the Atlantic making the temperature comfortable. In spring and autumn a little rain or a few cloudy days are possible and evening temperatures are lower than in summer months. In winter the Algarve does not tend to see prolonged periods of miserable weather. Besides relaxing by the pool or on one of the many beautiful beaches has a lot to see. A few suggestions include Silves which boasts the best preserved castle in the Algarve, Portimao and its marina, Monchique and Lagos. Plenty of places to take the children, including water parks, Zoo Marine, Krazy World and scenic boat trips.
Carvoeiro is approximately 40 minutes from Faro airport by car. The villa is ideally situated within easy walking distance of the stunning village of Carvoeiro, a lively fishing village, which has become popular during recent years, but still retains its local charm. Today, the village spreads to the east and west with luxury villas and comfortable holiday properties. Happily there are still examples of the older quaint houses tucked in between the most recent ones. There are three main streets, each lined with coffee shops/bars, smart restaurants and tourist shops. Fresh fish and locally produced fruit and vegetables can be purchased from the market. The beach, which has amazing rock formations around the cove, is a pleasant 5 minute walk from the villa. There are plenty of other stunning beaches within a 10 minute drive from the villa. There are three golf courses within 5 minutes drive and a further golf course about 15 minutes away. There is an excellent tennis club which welcomes holiday makers to join club sessions.

"Fantastic villa, fantastic week"
We have just returned from a week at this lovely luxury villa. Its so spacious and comfortable and is superbly located close to Carvoeiro.
We chose not to hire a car and did not regret doing so. All amenities are within a ten minute stroll.
Pool and terrace fabulous, plenty of sunbeds and a very comfortable dining table and chairs.. The large umbrellas were most welcome at lunchtime for shade.
If you are considering a visit to Carvoeiro, look no further... Can not fault it. The owners were so helpful and Yvette was kind enough to offer us early entrance upon arrival.
We all agreed that we had a wonderful week and that this was the best villa we had stayed in. Thankyou
