Location description from owner

The Algarve region

The Algarve is a beautiful part of Portugal with plenty to do and see for those wanting an active holiday. It is also ideal for those seeking a total rest under blue skies in the sun. The 200 km long southern Algarve coastline is varied and offers a wide selection of sandy beaches and intimate coves dotted between attractive towns and fishing villages, while the west coast is wilder with crashing Atlantic waves providing excellent windsurfing from long golden beaches.

A trip to the historic lighthouse at Cape St Vincent, the most south westerly point in Europe, followed by a leisurely lunch at a beach restaurant, is a great way to spend a day. Also popular is a drive up into the forested mountains around Monchique to experience some local culture and cuisine, and to take in some magnificent scenery in the cooler mountain air. There are lovely walks both along the coast and inland, and many well-groomed golf courses to test all ability levels. Other readily available activities include water sports, tennis, horse riding, water parks and the famous Zoo Marine.

Markets abound, small and large, where you can stock up on fresh produce and browse at your leisure, that at Loule (which also has a gypsy market) on Saturday being the best known. Pottery and ceramics are a noteworthy regional craft. There really is something for everyone in this wonderful part of Portugal, but do spend some time enjoying the tranquillity of this lovely villa and relaxing by its private pool.

Carvoeiro

Carvoeiro is a traditional Portuguese fishing village that has developed into a popular holiday destination. It has lost little of its original charm, and has a small sandy beach backed by cafes and restaurants and surrounded by colourful sand and limestone cliffs. In and around Carvoeiro are some fine beaches, golf courses, restaurants and well-stocked supermarkets, and the welcoming locals will cater for your every need and help you to get the most out of your holiday. For those not wishing to hire a car, local taxis are relatively cheap, for example to or from Carvoeiro costs just 5-6 euros.

Just a few km south of the Algarve motorway and only 45 minutes from Faro airport, Carvoeiro also lies conveniently close to the town and harbour of Portimao, an excellent shopping centre with attractive pedestrian precincts and riverside restaurants. The nearest two18 hole championship golf courses (Pinta and Gramacho) are only a 5 minutes drive from the villa.

“Excellent Villa”

Reviewed 17 Nov 2012

This was our second stay at Villa Francesca - we enjoyed it so much the first time we came back with our family. The villa is extremely well equipped and is situated in a lovely peaceful location. The gardens are beautiful and the children really enjoyed the pool. We spent many evenings on the balcony which has amazing views across to the sea. We had wonderful service from Esmeralda the maid who kept the villa absolutely spotless. All in all a great place to stay and we would not hesitate to recommend to others.

“A place to feel at home and enjoy the wonderful surroundings”

Reviewed 25 Oct 2012

We had a lovely week with our three sons and their girlfriends in this well equipped and spacious villa. Because of the layout we all had our own space and everything was there that you could possibly wish for in a holiday villa. The town, for the nightlife for the younger ones was a walk away, so they could be independent in the evenings and we enjoyed the beautiful views to the sea on the huge terrace. They also thoroughly enjoyed the pool, and tennis courts in the evenings (too hot in the day). All in all we had a great time and thank Paddy for allowing us to share his special place in the sun!

“Wonderful Holiday”

Reviewed 22 Nov 2011

We had a really enjoyable holiday in Villa Francesca in June 2011. The beautiful villa, the garden/pool and the tennis courts next door were all ideal for our group which included our adult children and small grandchildren. The owners were kind enough to put childproof fencing on the upstairs balcony and this, together with a gate for the stairs in the villa gave us great peace of mind during our holiday. We played some golf on the nearby courses and the charming village of Carvoiero with plenty of excellent restaurants was just a few kilometres away. We would heartily recommend Villa Francesca to any family group and we hope to stay there again in the future.

“The Beautiful Villa Francesca”

Reviewed 21 Nov 2011

Villa Francesca felt more like a second home than a rental property. There was a wonderful feeling of homeliness about it. The standard of the accommodation was good and we enjoyed the spaciousness of the rooms. We were a party of 8 ranging in ages from 6 to 80 and everyone had a wonderful time. For my parents both in their 80's there was more than enough space to disappear to away from the children yet without feeling the need to temper the children's enjoyment of the pool and garden (both of which were beautifully kept). We would all return to this villa in a heartbeat. The owners too were very kind and welcoming in email correspondence before and after we arrived with great recommendations for beaches and restaurants. The location was a perfect balance in terms of distance to a variety of different beaches and restaurants whilst at the same time the villa itself was very private and tucked away from the buzz of the town. The local manager was helpful and accommodating. We really did love this holiday and would have no hesitation in recommending it. We hope to return to Villa Francesca ourselves on day soon.
