TUESDAY CHANGEOVER DAYS.
Whether you've been to the Algarve before or are currently thinking of going for the first time, you couldn't have chosen a better holiday home to consider. Situated in a private area in Carvoeiro, Casa Manala was built in 1986. It has 4 bedrooms but one of these is private leaving GUESTS TO CHOOSE WHETHER TO RENT 2 OR 3 OF THE REMAINING BEDROOMS DEPENDING ON THE NUMBER IN THEIR PARTY. The rental cost reflects this choice.
The villa lies in its own grounds with a garden that has become the most established and colourful imaginable. But while you have all the privacy you could wish for, whether in the villa or sunbathing beside the swimming pool, you can very quickly enjoy the bustle of the town centre which is only 10 minutes walk away and the fun of the many sandy beaches in the area just a few minutes drive away.

There are four bedrooms, although the one on the top floor is private and kept permanently locked. The other three on the ground floor are all twin bedded and all have their own bathroom/toilet. Bathroom towels are supplied in the villa but you should take a beach towel with you. In all three bedrooms are large built-in wardrobes each with shelf space, drawers and a hanging rail with hangers and one of the bedrooms has a lockable cupboard for large valuables and a small safe for money and passports. Guests can choose between using either 2 or 3 bedrooms depending on the number in their party.
The lounge/dining room is a comfortable and cool area to relax in out of the sun. There is satellite TV, Blu-Ray/DVD player, cd/iPod player and a selection of books and games to while away the hours. If you're holidaying out of summer there are electric wall heaters for the evenings and if you're adventurous, a log fire to help build a cosy atmosphere at night time.
You enter the kitchen from either the left hand door off the lounge or from the back garden kitchen patio. The kitchen is fully equipped with a gas cooker, dishwasher and refrigerator/freezer and has a full set of china wear, glasses, cutlery, cooking utensils, etc., as well as a coffee cafetière, toaster and toasted sandwich maker. There is a washing machine in one of the outside kitchen patio cupboards which Maria (the maid) uses for general washing such as sheets and towels. While this is not strictly available for clients to use you can “negotiate” with Maria for her to carry out a small amount of your washing. The kitchen patio leads out to the top garden which contains a number of fruit trees.

The swimming pool, 9mtrs x 4.5mtrs, is situated in the patio area next to the villa. At the deep end the pool is 2.25mtrs and at the the shallow end 1.2mtrs deep with steps leading down in one corner. The pool can be heated between March and October for an optional extra cost (see rental costs) and there is a plastic blanket to cover the pool at night to keep the water warm. There is also an underwater light to add that extra atmosphere at night time.
The patio around the pool has two seating areas, one with a table, and there are two B-B-Q's. Around the pool there are 6 cushioned lounger chairs, small side tables and 4 umbrellas. On the patio immediately outside the lounge is a large dining table and 8 chairs.
The lower garden is landscaped and contains a number of indigenous and imported trees and plants and in the middle of the lawn a recently planted 300 year old olive tree. There is a small “Roman” garden area in the bottom corner where you can sit in the shade during the heat of late afternoon. An automatic sprinkler system has been installed to water the lawn and all the flower beds which comes on during the night.
The top garden contains a selection of fruit trees, some of which we have labelled, and an olive tree which is the only tree still remaining from the land before Casa Manala was built. Feel free to help yourself to a lemon for your evening gin & tonic! Alongside the top garden at the end of the drive is a car port where you can keep your car in the shade; it's conveniently near to the front door of the villa in case you've purchased some heavier items in the local shops (a few bottles of wine possibly?). You can also enter the pool area from a side gate off the drive.
Having owned the villa since 1986 we possess a wealth of knowledge and information about Portugal, the Algarve and specifically the town and area around Carvoeiro. We are happy to pass this information on to you, give you any advice on things to do and places to see, and give you a list of good restaurants in the town of Carvoeiro or some excellent ones we know in the countryside a short drive away.

Casa Manala is a little gem! It's hard to beat for a family holiday and we went back again this year. The house itself is nice, the situation and layout that make it a lovely holiday home. Two bedrooms (with ensuites) and the living room open up onto a gorgeous pool, with a beautiful garden beyond. The location is perfect too: you're in a quiet, pretty area but only a 10-minute walk from the beach, shops, bars and restaurants of Carvoeiro. Perfect if you've got older kids who want to go out at night. What's really nice is that the owners take care of you: a maid every day, a pool guy and a gardener. Everything works and looks good, all the time. We've had happy times there...

"A great villa"
This was our 6th year in Portugal but our first stay at casa Manala and with out doubt the best villa for the cost we have stayed in! The location is excellent as only a short drive from Carvoeiro and the main attractions such as Slide and Splash and Aqualand.
The villa itself is set in lovely gardens and has all the amenities you would expect to make your stay relaxing and comfortable and was extremely clean and well maintained. Our boys spent all their time in the pool which is a great size and we spent many any evening bbq'ing (It has 2 to choose from!) and playing the board games! All in all a fantastic villa and if we return to Portugal we would definitely look to stay at casa Manala again
