Casa Brigitte - Ocean View
Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
A stunning two level (duplex) apartment situated on the edge of a cliff offering uninterrupted views across the Atlantic Ocean and the West coastline of Portugal. Take breakfast on the terrace in the morning and watch the sunrise, lunch in the afternoon whilst taking in the scenes on the beach taking in the passing tourist boats and private yachts, then enjoy the evening with some of the most spectacular sunsets whilst drinking down your favourate sun-downer. The beach is a two minute stroll away, as are all the amenities and many wonderful restaurants and bars - all you need to make your holiday as stress free and transport free as possible.
With its own two private balconies and direct sea views this is the place to relax, unwind and contemplate the joys of life. The interior is a clever combination of traditional decor with modern functionality and comfort. The lower floor of the apartment offers a terrace with table and chairs to relax at whilst watching the world go by. Inside the apartment you have a fully-equipped kitchen, shower room, dining table with four chairs, Satellite TV, DVD player, Wi-fi, a large L-shaped sofa and comfortable chair. Upstairs you are welcomed by double patio doors offering the most amazing views down the coastline of Portugal. The large bedroom with king size bed, en-suite bathroom, wardrobe etc, leads out onto the large terrace with a table and four chairs and two sun loungers. This is probably the room you will spend most of your time in as whilst the sun is rising you can be lying in bed watching and listening to the waves crash upon the rocks and as night time draws in your can be lured into a peaceful sleep by the waves lapping onto the beach and washing all your troubles away.
You may even be fortunate enough to see schools of dolphins in the ocean whilst making their way East.
There is adequate on-street parking outside the apartments or at the car park by the church a few metres away. For those who need to stay in touch, WiFi is installed and internet access is free.

The Algarve region
The Algarve is blessed with over 3000 hours of unbroken sunshine each year and high temperatures in the summer which are cooled by the breeze directly from the Atlantic, making them all the more comfortable.
The province is located in the far south of Portugal and bordered by the Atlantic ocean on two sides and by mountains to the East. It stretches from the Spanish border westwards to the most southerly point of Europe at Cape St. Vincent. One hundred and fifty miles of Portugal's coast is formed by cliffs overlooking numerous sandy beaches. Places to visit that are not too far from Carvoeiro include the Mountains of Monchique with it's rustic restaurants and quaint towns, the historic town of Silves with it's castle, Portimao with it's Marina and shopping and, for those who wish to travel further afield, Lisbon with it's historic buildings.
Carvoeiro is a pretty fishing village, steeped in history and set into the hillside overlooking it's own beach. The village is not over-developed and still retains much of it's character, happily boasting examples of the older quaint houses which are tucked neatly away in between the most recent ones. As there are no high rise apartments in area it has been quoted to be one of the prettiest villages in the Algarve with picturesque bays, sandy beaches dramatic cliffs to stroll along and a multitude of beaches, caves and grottos to explore. A place where you are really guaranteed to get a taste of Portugal and the Algarve.
There are three main streets, each lined with coffee shops/bars, smart restaurants and tourist shops. Fresh fish and locally grown fruit and vegetables can be purchased from the daily market in town. Alternatively, you have small grocery stores nearby or larger supermarkets within easy reach by car.
For the discerning golfer and tennis lover, close by are the three well-known golf courses of Pinta, Gramacho and Vale do Milho, as well as the well known “Carvoeiro Tennis Club” which welcomes holiday makers to join club sessions.
With good shopping facilities and an exceptional variety of restaurants catering for all tastes the area provides visitors with the perfect holiday destination.
From the apartment, the beach is a two minute stroll down the hill, or down the steps just across from the apartment, as are all the amenities you need to make your holiday as stress free and transport free as possible.

"Fantastic apartment but even better views!"
My partner and I stayed in this apartment in late July 2013. The apartment itself is very large, over two floors and is quite obviously someone's very loved home and very far from a faceless holiday let. I wanted somewhere we could just 'live' without the need to mix with other people over a shared block or pool and could pad about at our leisure and at our own pace. It could not have been more perfect for that - the use of a washing machine together with a very well equipped kitchen made for a very relaxed home from home experience. Carvoeira is a very pretty, still very Portuguese, village and although much larger than I remembered from many years, it retains its compact beach and pretty square surrounded by restaurants due to the shaping of the cliffs. Thank you for letting us share your home, Phillipa.

"even better than the photos!"
Our first visit to the Algarve was a wonderful experience. Although we thought that it could not live up to the photographs on the site, this was not the case. You can literally awake to the sound and sight of the ocean. The apartment is a home from home having all basic living needs and is only 5 minutes walk from the centre of Carvoiero and the main beach. Lovely walks along the cliff paths lead through dramatic scenery and discoveries of small coves which are great for swiming and snorkling.
All airport transfer was arranged for us by the owner so it was truly a stressfree holiday.
