Why Frank and Linda Murphy chose Vale de Milho

We searched the whole of the Algarve and decided on this area because of its scenic beauty and central location.There is so much to see and do; clifftop walks sandy bays and enchanting seaside villages.The village of carvoeiro itself is a gem and has entertainment in the square in the evenings and a choice of many good restaurants and bars.It is a great place to bring family and friends.The villa itself is in a great location at the end of a short road with only one other property.It is not overlooked and is very private.All rooms are very well proportioned and there are views to the sea from all levels.There is a 10 x 5 mtr pool which can be heated.The villa is centrally located within its own sub tropical gardens.A great place to unwind and enjoy.

What makes this villa unique

Peaceful location yet close enough to walk to the local village, restaurant or sandy beach.Open and airy with good proportioned rooms.Good sized pool,sea views and lovely gardens.

Super place for a peaceful holiday

  • 5 of 5

The house was just perfect for us. Frank and Linda made us so welcome, and we quickly settled in to enjoy our holiday. It was the perfect place to rest and unwind. Everything about the house was first class, and we were very comfortable for the whole fortnight. There are many beautiful places nearby, so we never had to travel very far to enjoy beautiful beaches and cliff top walks. Overall a great place for a peaceful holiday.

So lucky to have found this property

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful, comfortable, well equipped villa , We stayed there for 3 weeks and just loved it. Breakfast on the pool patio, laze and swim in the pool...into the village for lunch, gelato , cappuccino and visit one of the many good restaurants for supper then finish off the day with an evening cocktail on the roof top terrace....wonderful. We had a rental car and did a lot of day trips to the surrounding villages along the coast but also talked to people who just used the local bus service to get around to different areas. Owner/property management were so easy to deal with and one small problem we had was dealt with promptly and efficiently. Would highly recommend this property and hope to return ourselves one day.

Wonderful vacation at Casa Linda!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Casa Linda! The house is spacious and has everything you need. The outside areas of the villa are beautiful and we enjoyed the heated pool very much. Even though the friendly owners Frank and Linda could not be there, they called to make sure everything was alright. Thanks a lot! A welcome package with something to eat in the fridge was perfect for our late arrival and made us feel welcome at Casa Linda. Overall we can really recommend the villa and will stay again!

Heerlijk huis

  • 5 of 5

Wij komen al enkele jaren in Carvoeiro en hebben specifiek gezocht naar een huis in de wijk Vale de Milho. Wij waren blij verrast toen wij bij het huis aankwamen. Een heerlijke vrijstaande villa, alles gelijkvloers, met een fantastisch prive zwembad en heerlijk rustig gelegen aan het eind van een doodlopende straat. Het huis ligt met de auto 5 minuten van het centrum, dus dichtbij restaurants, supermarkten, strand e.d. Het huis is compleet ingericht. Het gehele huis is voorzien van airco, maar overdag is het een redelijk koel huis -mede door de planfondventilatoren. Tevens werkt de wifi uitstekend. Twee keer per week komt de schoonmaakster langs en wekelijks wordt de tuin en het zwembad onderhouden. Erg goed geregeld allemaal. Frank en Linda zijn fantastische verhuurders die bij aankomst persoonlijk met je komen kennismaken en bijzonderheden vermelden. Daarnaast ligt er een welkomsboek (in vele talen, ook in Nederlands) in het huis en is er ook een map aanwezig voor attracties in de omgeving. Aan de voorzijde van het huis is een ruim parkeerterrein met carport aanwezig. Het huis ligt in een fraaie villawijk en alles ziet er zeer verzorgd uit en wij voelden er ons gelijk thuis. Bij aankomst bleek de koelkast zelfs voorzien van de eerste benodigdheden voor een hapje en een drankje en voor het ontbijt. (dat vonden wij zeer bijzonder). Tevens hebben wij genoten van de barbeque en het heerlijke zwembad. Al met al zijn wij zeer tevreden over Frank en Linda (ook het contact vooraf is uitstekend) en komen wij volgend jaar weer graag in het huis terug.

Fantastic Villa - Great Location - Will suit all

  • 5 of 5

Great Villa - Have stayed in the area before albeit 9 years ago but nothing has changed. Firstly the Villa was everything that was promised and Linda was great from booking onwards. The size of the pool was perfect and much better than some of the small pools that can often be available at some Villas. A car is required but we did walk down into town a few times during our stay but also used a number of restaurants within 5 or 10 mins walk - Julios was our favourite - we went twice! All restaurants in town though seemed good & we did not have a bad meal out.

A few words on golf in the area - We played at Pine Cliffs which was a lovely 9 holer near Vilamoura (about 30 mins) great condition & perfect for those hot days when 18 is too much. The cours of the week though was The Faldo at Ocenaico. Fantastic Service/Buggys with coolers! Tees like greens, course in great condition (in July) and a number of memorable holes - you will not be disappointed if you play here.

A great villa, and some lovely courses = perfect holiday.

Wonderful villa in good location June 2013

  • 5 of 5

Linda and Frank from our initial contact to saying goodbye were fantastic hosts.

The villa is fantastic - the versatility is amazing. Inside there is the snug, the lounge and the dining areas, whilst outside, there are the two seated BBQ areas, seated areas outside both double bedrooms. The patio lounge area that overlooks the lovely 10 by 5 meter swimming pool has distance sea views. The swimming pool area has 4 loungers and parasols with the addition of a few pool toys. "Happy" the Dolphin is the replacement to "Happy Hippo" which we broke in one of our many exciting play times in the pool! We were okay not to have the pool heated as the temperature was well in to the 20's. Use of the WII was a good addition too and the ceiling fans do a good job if you don't want to pay for aircon.

Vale de Milho restaurant a few minutes walk away were friendly and accomodating. With so many restaurants in Carvoeiro, we went to a different place each time we ate out. If you like fish and seafood you'll love it. For local dishes would recommend Cataplana at "A Rede" (massive king prawns!), with Vimar restaurant all inclusive meal at €9.50 for lunch and €13.50 for dinner excellent value and quality.

Recommend food shopping at Pingo doce or Aldi near Lagoa. Intermarche okay but more costly.

Slide and Splash water park was a great day out as was the Kayak Tour fro Lagos as you get to see the inside of caves and lagoons that not even the tour boats cannot get into. If you like boats, there are a quite a few marinas along the coast - again Lagos has a good one. A trip to Monchique and the highest point in the Algarve at Foia - worth a visit on a hotter day on the coast. ..... and finally, yes, would we recommend to family and friends. Hope to visit again next year.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking time to write a review of your stay with helpful advice for new quests arriving. We are very pleased you had a great time and we hope to see you all again in the near future. Just one comment, we do have six loungers but hadn't got round to putting them all out, so if you are a party of 6 there will be one for everyone. Regards Linda and Frank

Beautiful 3 bedroom villa with private 10m x 5m heated pool is situated in a very peaceful and quiet area of Vale de Milho, Carvoeiro, surrounded by its own sub-tropical gardens. The beach of Centianes, and Rocha Brava with its excellent supermarket and restaurants are within 15 mins stroll. Rocha Brava also has tennis courts and a gym available for hire and a beauty salon offering beauty treatments and massage for those wishing to be pampered. Vale de Milho 3par Golf Course with its excellent restaurant and bar is just a 5 min walk. There are many more restaurants within 5 – 10 mins walking distance. In summer Carvoiero village is a bright and bustling holiday resort offering a wide choice of restaurants and shops, and a beautiful safe sandy beach adjacent to the square. In winter there is still plenty to do; being central to the Algarve coast, Carvoiero allows good access to the surrounding countryside and the many family attractions in the area.

Golf: Just 5 mins walk from the Villa is the Vale de Milho par 3, 9 hole course with a wonderfully relaxed attitude to the game. It is a great course for beginners, and the bar is high up overlooking a lot of the course, and as such makes a perfect place to park the non-players. For the more serious golfer , Gramacho and Pinta (within 3 km. of Carvoeiro) are both full 18 hole courses, with Pinta being slightly more challenging. They are likely to be relatively quiet in June as it is the off season for Portuguese golf.
