About the home
The villa is very spacious - on the ground floor there is the large entrance hall, lounge/diner with patio doors out onto the terrace, and a smart new kitchen/breakfast room. Downstairs there is a large bedroom with a king size bed, plenty of wardrobe space (with a safe) and patio doors out into the garden. Downstairs is also a bathroom with a 'wet room' style shower unit, a modern wash basin and WC. This downstairs bedroom is ideal for grandparents or for a couple with a small baby, as it has a small adjoining room ideal as a nursery or dressing room.
Upstairs are two good sized twin bedrooms each with plenty of wardrobe and storage space, and smaller double bedroom - with a single bed and a new put-up bed and wooden cot. Upstairs is a new shower room, with a wash basin and loo . A baby bath also available.
The villa was completely refurbished in 2008 and is in excellent condition throughout. Both bathrooms have been refurbished in the last two years and in December 2011 we had a new modern kitchen fitted.
The garden is very private and has a larger than average heated pool and plenty of room for six sunbeds and a barbecue for al-fresco dining. We recently built a new patio area out from the lounge with two lockable gates for additional child safety. On the patio is a fixed marble table with modern chairs - which seats 8 guests comfortably. There are plenty of subeds and umbrellas and a kiddie table and chairs. We also have 2 high chairs if required.
The lounge has Satellite TV, a DVD player and a log burning fire. The indoor dining area seats 6/8.
There is air-con and heating throughout the villa making it an all year round comfortable home.
Wireless and static internet is now installed.
The villa is only 800 metres walk or drive down into the centre of Carvoeiro, which has an excellent selection of restaurants, bars and shops, open all year round. A Splash and Slide waterpark is only a mile out of town, Sealife only 15 minutes drive, with Pestana's Gramacho and Pinta Golf Courses only 10 minutes away by car.
Carvoeiro is a great little resort with several really nice small beaches, Feragudo, Silves and Lagos to visit if you have a car. There is a train from the next village which takes you to Faro and the Spanish border to the East and Lagos in the West. There are also frequent buses from the airport.

The Algarve / Central Algarve region
Carvoeiro is centrally based on the Algarve, only 40 minutes from Faro Airport but away from any major built up holiday resorts. In the high season the weather is great, with a regular breeze to keep you cool. In the Spring and Autumn the weather is great - perfect for walking, golf and exploring the Algarve. Silves, the original capital of the Algarve, is only 5 miles inland and worth a visit. Ferragudo is a delightful unspoilt fishing village, just ten minutes drive away. Portimao is 5 miles west, a big city with an estuary front walk. There is a Slide and Splash waterpark just outside Carvoeiro and a Sea Life centre at Guia, about 10 miles east. There are loads of small beaches and coves to visit, with cliff walks and cafes. It really is a lovely part of the coast.
The Carvoeiro area
In Carvoeiro you'll find a long street absolutely packed with restaurants of all kinds from typical Portuguese to Italian and Chinese! The square near the beach has a nice selection of restaurants, cafes and bars, where you can sit and watch the local fishermen come and go from the beach. The beach is big enough to enjoy some sand in the summer, but not too large to make it a big resort.
How to get there
Click map icons for more information
Regular flights to Faro Airport (only 40 minutes to villa) from Easy Jet, Ryanair, Monarch, Jet 2, Thompson. We can recommend a reliable car hire company. You can book the Algarve 'Resort Hopper' which collects at the airport and drops at a hotel only 100 yards from the villa.
There is also a regular bus service from Faro to Carvoeiro and a train to Portimao, stopping about 5km from Carvoeiro at Estombar but there is no taxi service from this station to the villa!
