This villa was recommended by friends who stayed last year. We were two families (four adults, six children). All questions throughout the booking process were answered via email promptly. There was a friendly welcome and a lovely bottle of port. The villa itself is just Amazing. Even better than the pictures. High quality finish and all utensils etc provided. The kids begged to spend the days in the pool. We made traditional lemonade using the lemons on the trees in the gorgeous gardens. Evenings were spend in the casablanca suite playing pool. Overall a first class holiday location.Cannot wait to go again :)
Villa Carlota was recommended to us by friends who had stayed there last year. Had we seen this amazing Villa advertised we would have thought it was too good to be true. The pictures are everything this beautiful Villa represents and more. The booking and information process with Miguel was a pleasure. We were greeted personally by the owners on our arrival and our hosts left us a lovely departing gift of cake. There were 10 of us on our stay and we were most comfortable. I would definitely come back and recommend Villa Carlota to anyone.
Villa Carlota looks as it is shown on the photos or even better.
We, two families with three and two children, two boys aged 7 , one girl 10 years and two girls 11years stayed there for two weeks.
We arrived in the evening and the owners , Miguel, Amélia and José had already prepared a chicken barbecue for us. They also have done the first shopping for us so we were really relaxed when we arrived. They showed us the villa and gave us a bottle of very good port-wine as a welcome present.
We all felt very comfortable from the fist minute on.
The Villa itself is very spaciously so both families had enough room.
We loved the big swimming pool in the garden and the hot jacuzzi after it.
The kids loved the indoor pool because the water was quite warm.
Some days we just stayed in the villa with its beautiful garden and pool area, played some billiards in the casablanca saloon and enjoyed it.
The town of Silves is just a few minutes car drive away. We visited often the local market and bought some fruits , vegetables and fresh fish for the barbecue.
Silves is a very nice town with lots of cafes and restaurants.
If we had a question or request we just wrote an email to Miguel and Amélia and it was answered between shortest time
They recommended us some very good fish restaurants one had even it's own vine yard. Just marvelous.
During our stay we visited a lot of different beaches which you could easily reach by the car.
Unfortunately the time went too fast and the two weeks were very soon over
but we think we will come back soon.
We could highly recommend Villa Carlota.
The garden with it's fruit trees and and all kind of flowers is well maintained by a very nice gardener who always gave us some fresh collected fruits.
Everything in the villa was very clean and in a good condition.
It is just a marvelous place to spend outstanding holidays.
We have stayed in villas throughout Spain and Portugal over the last 10 years and this villa is definitely our favourite.
During the booking process all enquiries were answered promptly and courteously by Miguel. On arrival at the villa we were met and shown around in person. The villa itself is as wonderful as the photos on the website. It is evident that the owners have invested money and attention to detail in the property. Everything was of a high standard. You won't find any wobbly Ikea cupboards here.
The layout of the property is fantastic - on a hillside overlooking Silves. I couldn't recommend this villa enough and we hope to return next summer.
Thank you for a wonderful holiday.
We were really impressed with this villa. We stayed in Villa Carlota with 9 people: 6 adults and 3 children(7, 10 and 12 for 7 days). We had an unforgettable holiday!
The warm welcome, the birthday cake, the friendliness of the owners, it all contributed to a great week in a beautiful villa. The pictures looked so good, I was a bit scared the reality would be a bit disappointing. But there was no reason to be anxious, it looked even better in reality!
The area around the house is very large, as is the villa and the Casablanca room. The garden is well maintained and even provided us with fresh fruits. The different areas also make it a pleasure for a walkabout.
With an indoor- and outdoor pool and a jacuzzi, there were enough opportunities to get into the water. The children spent large parts of the days in the pools. And the view from the pool area was magnificient. You can see the whole city of Silves from upthere.
Apart from sleeping, we didn't spend much time inside the villa. If the weather is good, you don't have to. But it surely was all very tastfully furnished, well maintained and clean.
Although I rather keep it to ourselves, I would recommend this villa to everyone interested. We are already considering coming back next year.
We have been holidaying in the Algarve since 1980s, in a wide assortment, and standard of villas. Villa Carlota is as good as it gets!
The pictures of this villa are stunning and they still don't do it justice. You really need to see it in person to realise just how much time, effort and money has been put into making this place perfect. The villa is very spacious and is fitted out with all the household items you could possibly need and more.
The villa was immaculate and very tastefully furnished. We have rented villas all over Europe and this certainly rated as one of the best. The villa has electric gates and set in gardens which are well kept and a joy to walk around, the indoor and outdoor pools were a welcome luxury. The owners José & Amélia were there on arrival to answer any questions and show us around nothing was to much trouble and they were very professional. The position was quiet but within a 5 min drive of town where there were an abundance of good restaurants. We loved our stay at Villa Carlota , a real home from home and would certainly love to stay here for a much longer period of time.
I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending this villa to anyone visiting the area. If your searching through endless web sites for the perfect spot, you've just found it. Don't miss out
Thank you again
