Description from owner
Casa Tranquila was completed in 2012 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 ambiance 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. There is a circular

Location description from owner
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 5-10 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.

“Truly outstanding Villa, which the owners have clearly put their hearts and soles into.”
This was our first visit to Portugal, and also the first private villa that we had ever rented. We were not dissapointed in any way. In fact, the pictures and descriptions, did not do it justice. It is an amazingly spacious, and well planned property, and the owners have made fabulous use of the space to create wonderfully relaxing accommodation. The standard of fixtures and fittings are all high quality, and well above the standard holiday let that you would usually find. With 3 different terraces , you are spoilt for choice as to where to relax. The beautiful swimming pool is perfect for spending lazy days in and around, and we made 100% full use of it during our stay. The location is perfect for a slow stroll into the village, it takes around 10-15 minutes. Literally a 5 minute walk away is the local bakery, which is a must for fresh bread and pastries in the morning as it opens at 7am. Make sure you have an Espresso while you are there, it is a real wake up kick and not to be missed. Should you want to do a large supermarket shop, then just take a taxi to Intermarche which is about a 5/6 minute drive away and costs around 6 euros. The reception desk at Intermarche will call free for a taxi to collect you when you are ready to return. All together a fabulously relaxing holiday, in this stunning home from home, which was very much enjoyed by us all. You will not be dissapointed when you stay here
Owner's reply: Thank you so much Karen. Ian and I are so pleased your first stay in the Algarve seems to be truly memorable and naturally ecstatic you chose and loved our home Casa Tranquila. Thank you for the extra comments which I am sure will help other future guests not renting a car.
“For Us The Perfect Villa !”
My Husband & I have looked for the perfect villa for us & our son for a few years now in Europe but have yet to find right one with modern facilities we look for & in a great location that means you can actually walk to restaurants not just advertise it ! Finally we have found it in a stunning location with everything you need to just relax in comfort. The owners took many years to build their superb villa & have ended up with a great place to stay as its modern interior will suit all families & the exterior is ideal for relaxing which includes many areas to sunbathe, sleep, swim in a perfect size pool & drink on a newly built terrace. The kitchen & bathrooms are very modern & the lounge is ideal if you ever want to sit inside which is unlikely in the summer ! The local town if filled with great holiday places to eat yet once back in the villa you do feel removed from the busyness of the town. The villa gives you lovely views while sat outside & you do have a seaview, just ! Overall a superb easy place to stay with excellent communication from the owners at all time which we couldn't recommend enough. Look forward to staying here again.
Owner's reply: We are blown away by your kind words and we are pleased to already be in communications about a return trip. Thank you for taking the time to review.
“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
“Want to feel like a millionaire? if so, you'll want to stay in this villa!!”
Quite simply the most beautiful holiday accomodation my family and I have ever experienced! This stunning villa ticks all the boxes and is situated only a short walk from the resort centre and beach. The website photos are great but simply don't prepare you for how fabulous the villa and its views are! We liked it so much, we've booked up to go back again next summer!
“Lovely villa, Lovely location, Lovely time”
From the moment we booked, the owners couldn't do enough for us. Excellent correspondence, travel information and directions. We had no trouble finding the villa, which is about an hours drive from the airport. The standard of the villa was excellent and the location was a short stroll to the local village, which had plenty of bars and restaurants, and a small beach. Make sure you go and explore all the other little beaches. We have already booked for next year!
