A beautiful bay surrounded by cliffs and the village itself! Near the beach is the tourist office where you can collect all the information they find relevant.

The best location on Quinta do Paraiso!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this property and meeting the lovely owner, Cristina. She speaks very good English and there was no problem communicating or arranging to pick up keys etc. The house is lovely and has one of the best locations on Quinta do Paraiso as it is just a few steps away from the pool, meaning it is really easy to nip back to the house for lunch and enjoy the terrace there. It is also very near the kids club and mini market.

The house is very well equipped, with the added bonus of fresh bread, fruit and milk kindly provided on your arrival. Quinta do Paraiso itself is a beautiful, relaxing place for a holiday. There is some entertainment for kids, although it is very low key. My daughter did love the late night pool party though and the weekly parrot show! Mostly we strolled down into Carvoeiro, stopping half way on our way back at the Monte Paraiso complex of bars! The hill is really not that bad unless you are pushing a buggy and most of the walk is a more gently slope.

We would definitely book this property again! Thanks Cristina for a lovely stay x

A fab home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

Myself, my wife and 2 boys(3&5) stayed 10 nights. From our arrival Cristina was friendly, accommodating and very helpful. This did not change. The house is extremely well equipped from spare towels to cooking spices. The attention to detail was impressive. All mod cons are present. The house is very comfortable and clean. It really is like a home away from home. The trees around the house give great privacy especially on the patio. There's an awning there too for those exceptionally hot days. Alternatively, the a.c. in the bedrooms is great!

A lovely walk of 5 minutes (much quicker without kids!) Brings you to the 3 pools. Two ample sized pools and a large .5m kids pool. Also here are the bar, shop, two restaurants and reception. There's lots of organised activities from aqua aerobics and water polo to bingo and junior disco. It takes about 15 minutes to walk tothe village where you'll find a lovely beach and lots of restaurants.

We had a lovely, relaxing and fun time. We would definitely go back to Cristinas house.

Verdadeiramente um cantinho no Paraíso

  • 5 of 5

Em junho de 2013 voltámos pelo segundo ano consecutivo a esta casa que tão boas recordações nos tinha deixado no ano anterior. E se algo havia mudado, tinha sido para melhor! A vedação no alpendre acrescentou segurança às refeições que aí adoramos fazer (temos dois filhos ainda pequenos) e a abertura e fecho das portadas pelo exterior trouxe um conforto adicional. Tudo o resto continuava perfeito, tal como recordávamos!

Este ano a decisão está tomada sem hesitações - em junho lá estaremos novamente! Neste verdadeiro cantinho do Paraíso!

Best value for the money

  • 5 of 5

A localizacao e perfeita, enquadrada num Complexo Turistico que mantem a flora original do Algarve com todas as comodidades do turismo Moderno, esta 15minutos a pe da famosa Praia do Carvoeiro com a vibrante animacao nocturna. Em termos de higiene e conservacao 5 estrelas e a proprietaria Cristina muito simpatica e atenciosa. Recomendo vivamente, vale o dinheiro que se paga. Actividades para os jovens sao bastante animadas e restaurantes para diferentes gostos e precos que no geral sao bons. Umas ferias que ficam na memoria pelas boas razoes. J P Correia

great property in an excellent resort !

  • 4 of 5

Very accurate description of the property which was well equipped, clean and well maintained, Christina was great assistance during booking and the staff at quinto do paraiso are very friendly and helpful. the location within the complex is ideal as it is close to the pool but the mature gardens ensure plenty of privacy

The complex is relaxed with a wide mix of nationalities and our kids age 6 and 3 really loved the pool and the kids club was very good. entertianment in the complex was enjoyable. do not miss out on the italian restaurant across from the complex. great food at great price.

Air con in the second bedroom would be of benefit but i would definitely return to this property in the future.

this was our 3rd trip to the carvoeiro area and really enjoyed it. take the time to visit.

Holiday cosy home, close to Carvoeiro Beach, located at Quinta do Paraiso, one of the most renowned resorts and holiday accommodation in the Algarve. The resort has several swimming pools, bars, restaurants, mini market, tennis and diving center. It also has a mini club. It has a large area of manicured gardens, where you can find native species such as olives, almonds, carob, whiners sand but also exotic species. Ideal for relaxing outside, next to the pools, enjoying one of the delicious cocktails at Caravela Bar.

Praia do Paraiso is just 10 minutes walking! For lovers of Golf, the golf courses of Gramacho is less than 5 miles from home, Silves Golf and Penina Golf, a short drive are ideal to optimize your vacation! The village of Carvoeiro is about 1 km from the house and there you can find everything you need, from post offices, banks / ATMs, taxis, pharmacies, medical services, various shops, restaurants, bars, clubs. If you like ice cream have to prove them in the Palace of the cone, where everything is home made! At the exit of Carvoeiro you will find Algar Seco, one of the most characteristic points of the coast in this region, with it´s caves, seagulls and anglers. Lagoa is the nearest town, about 5 kms, where there is the Museum of the Convent of S. José, the Church, the School of Music, Health Centre and several private clinics. You can visit the cellar Lagoon and its art gallery, as well as visiting other wine producers in the region. In August takes place at FATACIL, a craft fair, technology, commerce, industry and food, but there is always some interesting event around. The path is Estômbar Slide & Splash, one of the best amusement parks in the Algarve waterfowl.

In Estômbar you will find a spot that the locals call "Fontes de Estômbar", a beautiful place to sightseeing and picnics next to a stream, where it is held each year the Jazz Festival. For the interior is the Serra de Monchique, a unique natural beauty of a place where you can enjoy delicious local delicacies and taste the famous Medronho, a spirit produced by distilling the respective fruit. Honey bees of the mountain is also a speciality!

In Lagoa is a central road transport (buses and taxis) and Estômbar there is a railway station. The airport is in Faro, about 45 minutes by car and it is recommended to book the shuttle from there.

This site is not called Quinta do Paraiso by chance! It has been my privilege to live here, it will be your privilege to stay here!
