Carvoeiro Apartment Rental Photos and Description
2 bedroom apartment, sleeps 5 (+ 1 infant), private roof terrace & BBQ
Ideal for families and couples this is a large corner, south facing, ground floor Apartment situated in a small private, secure, gated condominium of just 20 apartments. Set around a communal swimming pool with beautiful landscaped gardens, in a peaceful location yet near to Carvoeiro with its beach, bars and restaurants only a few minutes drive away. The small village of Sesmarias with a mini market, bars and restaurants is a ten minutes walk. The large Intermarché supermarket is a short drive away. The apartment is situated in an elevated position with fabulous sea views. From the lower terrace you have an open outlook towards the large shared swimming pool with separate children’s pool and poolside shower. The roof terrace has a built in BBQ and has fine sea and mountain views.
Nearby:: Boat trips can be taken from the beach at Carvoeiro to local beaches or to view the spectacular rock formations at nearby Algar Seco and otherwise inaccessible coves and beaches passing caves and blow holes on the way. Along the N125 towards Porches, known for its potteries and ceramics studios, there is an equestrian centre for those interested in horse riding and several water theme parks including Zoomarine where it is possible to swim with Dolphins. The peace and tranquillity of the Monchique Mountains, forests of pine trees and cork oaks, is only a short drive via the pretty mountain village of Caldas de Monchique, source of the local bottled water. The ancient Moorish walled town of Silves with its fort, archaeological museum and Saturday morning market makes an interesting inland excursion. Silves is also home to the atmospheric sea-food restaurant Marisqueira Rui which enjoys a reputation, with tourists and local people alike, as being one of the Algarve’s best!
Further afield:: For more ambitious excursions, Cape St Vincent and the fort at Sagres is the most westerly land fall of continental Europe and can be reached by car in approximately one and a half hours via the recently extended trunk road passing through countryside of the Western Algarve not previously seen by tourists. The rugged western coast is popular with surfers and, even in mid summer, is relatively uncrowded. The Guadiana River forms the Eastern border with Spain which can also be reached easily courtesy of the ‘Via Infante’ trunk route. The N125 gives access to the many places of interest along the way including the beautiful church of St Laurenco, with its tiled interior, near Almancil, the hill towns of Loule with its bustling Saturday morning market and popular picnic spots at Alte. A day trip to Lisbon and its atmospheric ‘Alfama’ district is also quite feasible
Sport:: The Algarve has become synonymous with golf hence can boast some of the best courses available most of which can be reached by car in under an hour. The closest are Pinta and Gramacho at the Pestana complex approximately three minutes drive away and Vale de Milho eight minutes drive away. Tennis is available at the Carvoeiro Clube de Tenis adjacent to the apartment where there is also a scuba diving school. The beaches of Albufeira, thirty minutes drive away, and Praia Grande at Feragudo offer water sports facilities, the latter being a popular windsurfing venue.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We had an excellent holiday. good food (walkable) at Island Cafe and Bon Bon. Best day we had was at Lagos - 2 boat trips dolphin watching and caves. It was thrilling!
