Overview

Quinta do Paraiso House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4/5

Casa Iona is a pretty white-washed villa situated in the beautiful Quinta-do-Paraiso Club, a 10-15 minute stroll from the picturesque Portuguese fishing village & beach of Carvoeiro. The family owned villa, which has been recently renovated to a high standard, has2 bedrooms, one with a 5 ft bed & the other with twin beds. Both bedrooms have large fitted wardrobes & are comfortably furnished. The bathroom, with traditional Portuguese tiles, has double sinks, a bath & an over-bath shower. The lounge has 2 comfortable sofas, a pretty wood-burning fireplace & dining area. The kitchen is well equipped with full size fridge-freezer, microwave, dishwasher & coffee-maker. If you are visiting in the summer air conditioning is available & there is heating if needed during the winter months. Patio doors open from the lounge onto an outside terrace where there is a table seating six – perfect for breakfast in the sun or a relaxing supper as you watch the sun go down. Parking is available.

Carvoeiro: A 10 – 15 minute stroll (or one of Quinta-do-Paraiso’s regular shuttle mini-buses) will take you via a scenic coastal route to the friendly village of Carvoeiro with its abundance of little shops and lovely restaurants, suiting every taste and budget, where there is always a warm welcome for families. Carvoeiro’s beautiful horseshoe shaped sandy beach (where local fishermen still tend their colourful boats) is flanked by cliffs on either side and there are some spectacular restaurants overlooking the sea - a perfect spot to sample the seafood which is freshly available for a leisurely lunch or dinner. Carvoeiro is a beautiful village which has no high-rise hotels or large apartment blocks.

Other local beaches: Whether its long stretches of sand or hidden coves with rock pools - you will be spoilt for choice in this part of the Algarve when it comes to beautiful beaches. There are many spectacular beaches close to Carvoeiro including Benegil (with its two very well-known seafood restaurants), Centianes and Algar Secos where the rock formation is ideal for snorkelling. Boats trips can be taken from Carvoeiro beach to other local beaches and rock formations and coves that are usually inaccessible from the land.• • • The surrounding area: As there are so many facilities within walking distance of the villa a car is not essential. If, however, you fancy venturing a bit further afield to visit one of the historic towns such as Silves and Lagos or to take a trip into the mountains and the spa town of Monchique. Carvoeiro is within easy reach of the harbour town of Portimao. We are happy to arrange car hire for you.

Sporting facilities and other activities: For families with children -

In addition to the lovely on site facilities such as swimming pool, tennis courts, mini-golf, playground, table tennis and children’s club there are also numerous fun activities in and around Carvoeiro to keep children of all ages amused. These include a local horse-riding centre, Zoomarine (where you can swim with dolphins) and several water theme parks – all within a short drive.

5 Star Casa Iona !!

  • 5 of 5
We arrived in mid-late August, hoping to avoid the busy summer holidays but still capture the sun - we weren't dissappointed.

The taxi from Faro Airport is only an hours drive (comfortable enough in a air conditioned cab), and split between the four of us, was a reasonable price too.
The welcome from the manager when we arrived was warming and very useful - they had also provided the essentials for us in the fridge!
The Villa itself has everything you need, whether you're looking to eat in three meals a day or just the occasional meal-time.
Everything you need is provided and the Quinta do Paraiso complex has a little supermarket where you can get food for your meals without the need to travel more than 2 minutes down the complex if desired.
The complex itself has two well priced restaurants with really good food, and a pool bar where you can grab a light bite to eat for lunch while relaxing by the pools in the sun.
There's activities day and night if that takes your fancy with a fun entertainment team, great for kids and adults alike.
If you didn't want to leave Quinta do Paraiso you wouldn't need to, but I'd definitely recommend talking to short walk down to Carvoeiro town and visiting the beach and many restaurants/shops down there too. If you're feeling adventurous there are some stunning little coves not far from the town beach and they are well worth exploring. (take a camera, you'll get some postcard worthy photos for sure!)
It was a brilliant holiday, and I wished I could have taken another week too visit the many popular places further out from Quinta do Paraiso.
5 out 5 Stars, I'll look forward to going back at some point!

cant praise Casa Iona highly enough

  • 4 of 5
staying here was a truly lovely experience, from the warm welcome and excellent service provided by the managers, to the great location and first class facilities within the villa and complex.

Set in a quiet location, the villa is only a short walk or drive to the gorgeous little beach with its coves and rock formations to explore, sandy beach to enjoy and bustling little quayside with the daily market, restaurants and quiet bars. if you are looking for value for money and dont want a benidorm package experience then this is a genuine find, we loved our stay at Casa Iona and didnt want to come home!!

tips:

1. hire a car - whilst the beach is walkable, it is a steep walk back and there are also some great locations to explore around (the bone chapel at Alcantarilha was a fun, if a little bizarre, visit!!)

2, explore the cliffs and caves to the east of the beach, it costs nothing and we were there pretty much all day, the views and the rocks and caves are breathtaking.

3, eat sardines on the seafront. about 6 euros each and as the sun is setting on the sea you will enjoy one of lifes great meals.

thats about it, a fantastic place to visit and far better value for money than many holidays of a similar price.

“Staying at this villa was an absolute treat”

  • 5 of 5
This villa actually feels more like a well-loved family home than a holiday rental with a lovely calm and happy ambience. It is comfortable, clean and well equipped with lots of little touches that make you feel at home. Like the ‘essentials’ in the fridge when you arrive and dish-washing tablets and washing powder being provided. But it is also the thoughtful touches like finding books and magazines provided for guests. Ideal as we spent so much time reading and relaxing on this holiday we finished ours!

Outside is a very sunny balcony with a table and chairs, great for some quiet time reading or for eating and drinking. Just a couple of minutes walk away is a spacious pool area where we spent a time lazing on a sun lounger and having the occasional swim in the pool. There is a bar there that serves drinks and food that was also very nice.

The villa is in a great position for exploring the Algarve. Just a short drive in the car and you are in Lagos and Portimao where just strolling around the avenues and marinas is a good way to spend some time. But not to be missed are the beaches on the West Coast, particularly Cordoama Beach which has to be one of the most stunning beaches in the world. Truly beautiful and just a handful of people there when we went in early September, but still very warm. You can take a picnic, but we had a lovely lunch at the cafe there overlooking the beach which was delicious... another bonus.

Before we went we were a bit worried that eating out in the evening would be expensive in Portugal. But we found some really great places locally to eat and drink that were very reasonably priced. One place in particular just a few minutes walk from the Villa served a starter, main course and seemingly unlimited wine and soft drinks for 9 Euros a head!! With a friendly atmosphere and such delicious food we loved it and ate there about four nights of holiday! There is a book in the villa where previous guests have written their recommendations, I suggest anybody else staying there just does what we did and follow their suggestions.

We were a couple staying there but it would work equally well for a family with young children (I think lots of families stay there was there were children’s games for guests to use). We thoroughly recommend this villa, we loved every minute and cannot wait to go back!

What a Fantastic Holiday!

  • 5 of 5
What a fantastic find this place was! After a busy year we just wanted to go to the sun and relax for a week and the house provided the ideal location for this to happen.
Situated in a lovely quiet enclave, the house was well maintained and spotlessly cleaned. Everything worked and we had no issues, however it was still reassuringly pleasant to get a couple of visits from the facility managers to see how we were doing and to have a chat. It was good to know that there was someone there for you if you needed them.
Breakfast on the sun drenched front terrace was a joy each morning as we were blessed with a superbly sunny week. The slow paced atmosphere soaking away the domestic hustle and bustle and restoring our inner peace.
Having a car made the beautiful, rugged west coast sandy beaches accessible to us, being only another hour and a half’s drive away. It is twenty years since I last visited the Algarve and the new motorway makes such a vast difference to travel times. It now gives you the choice to get somewhere quickly, or to meander through villages and towns enjoying the Portuguese experience. We just went to the coast a couple of times during our week in order to add a little variety to our relaxation.
If you enjoy walking then the stunning coast is just a 20 minute walk away. Its hidden coves and beaches are a real delight to discover on a gentle ramble which can be made into a circular walk ending up in a local hostelry for refreshments!
Finally the Casa de Pasto must be mentioned as a great place to eat. It is only a five minute walk away and serves two or three dishes a night, it is always comfortably busy and gives brilliant value for money. The folks running the place are really friendly and they are very family friendly.
We will certainly be returning!

Nice

  • 4 of 5
We spent great two weeks in Casa Iona which is located in nice area. Carvoeiro is a nice and quiet village with small restaurants and great food. Rented car gave us possibility to visit lots of beaches and interesting places like Zoomarine or Slide & Splash.
Thanks a lot for nice time.

Casa Iona/ Holiday

  • 5 of 5
Charl and Suzanne from Berkshire: This was the best family-holiday we've ever been on and outstanding value for money too! A combination of spot-on architecture and decor makes the visitor feel relaxed immediately upon stepping through the door. Everything has been thought of for you and your family to start enjoying yourselves instantly upon arrival. The cleaning service leaves you free to enjoy more time with the children. The facilities are excellent and mostly free.
