“Lovely villa in a quiet location”
We had a lovely week staying here, the villa was perfect for our group which included young adults. Having a bathroom per couple was fantastic, it gave everyone their own privacy while still being together in one house. Maria (the maid) was lovely and kept the villa immaculate. We didn't hire a car and found it easy to walk to most places. We used Uber's for trips to the supermarket, waterpark and a few late night returns. These were really cheap and arrived in minutes. The area was really quiet and we had everything we needed for a lovely relaxing holiday.
Owner's reply: Thank you Sharon, glad you had a great stay!
“Good villa, but a little dated”
Good location with a 20 min walk to the local town, although the steep hill makes a taxi back advisable (approx. 5-7 EU). Maria, the maid was delightful, as was Pat the villa manager. The very practical welcome pack when we arrived late with hungry children was much appreciated and a lovely touch. Overall, the villa is very spacious and the kitchen well equipped, having Sky and good WIFI was a also an advantage. There are a few points however, that others have made on other reviews, that we would agree with, whilst the pool is great, it is very deep which could be problematic with children. Our kids are strong swimmers but not being able to touch the floor makes "playing" in the pool a little difficult, although great for their diving practice ! The villa also feels a little dated and could do with a refresh, curtains, cushions etc need replacing. Also worth pointing out that the beds are extremely hard, to be honest little more than a mattress on a board, and for us very uncomfortable. Worth noting too that the villa has no air conditioning which was a problem in the July heat.
Owner's reply: Many thanks for your feedback Ruth. I strive to provide a great space for guests, and feedback like this is just what I need to keep the villa up-to-date. New beds and soft furnishings are in process and aircon is being explored. I hope you can return to enjoy the upgrades next year. Paul
“Spacious, well equipped villa”
We had a lovely 2 week stay at this villa which was in a quiet location and spacious enough for our two families. The new bathrooms and kitchen are modern and clean, the kitchen was well equipped. We were greeted by Patricia who was very friendly and left a lovely welcome basket. It was a pleasant 15/20 minute walk to the centre with its many restaurants, shops and evening entertainment. Part of the walk back was up a steep hill but we all found Sangria and ice cream helped! We also stayed in a few nights and made use of the BBQ, buying some lovely meat from the Intermarche butcher. Maria, the maid, was very friendly and came twice a week, there were plenty of towels in all the bathrooms and some for the pool too. Sky as a big plus for the sport and general channels and a bonus that it was in English. All in a all a very relaxing holiday.
Owner's reply: Many thanks for your kind words. So pleased you enjoyed your stay and time in Carvoeiro
“Excellent for young family and grandparents”
This is a lovely villa just suitable in every way for a family with young baby, preschool child and grandparents. Lovely setup, well equipped and so quiet with just a 20 minute walk into town. There was an excellent resturant, mini supermarket and playground nearby. The addition of wifi and sky TV was also a bonus. A very nice welcome pack was greatfully received and Patricia the villa manager and Maria the cleaner were very helpfull and friendly. Could not wish for any more and would love to come back as this was a great holiday!
Owner's reply: Glad you enjoyed your holiday Annette. Thanks for choosing us. Paul
“Private villa, beautiful resort, great for a beach holiday with the kids!”
This was our first time to stay in a private villa and our first time in Carvoeiro. It is a beautiful resort, great for a beach holiday with the kids The villa was perfect for us. The kids loved the garden and pool. For them, there was no reason to leave the house. Having satellite TV kept them occupied! The kitchen was well stocked with appliances and the welcome pack was a "welcome" surprise. We were a bit worried about a private villa but from the start everything went smoothly. Virgilio (Villa Manager) met us on arrival and the maid Maria came by regularly and was lovely, they give you a very welcoming feeling. All in all we had a great time, Thanks and see you again next year!
Owner's reply: Glad you had a great time Bob, hope to have you stay again some time soon
“The villa on the website looked too good to be true, but it exceeded our expectations”
We only had a small window in May to take a holiday with our 2 grown up sons and partners, so we were surprised we got Casa Branco Grande for 10 days at a great price, the bedrooms , bathrooms were excellent and pool area had the sun allday, it was a 15 minute stroll into town in the evening, all in all fantastic holiday in a fantastic villa,we will be back
Owner's reply: Thankyou for your comments. I'm glad you liked the villa, after a lot of work put in to the bathrooms and kitchen last winter I'm glad that people are enjoying it!
