Please do not smoke inside. The house is well-kept. The kitchen is completely equipped with modern appliances. Dining and cooking utensils are available in an adequate supply. The warm water is heated through an environment-friendly manner with a solar system. The house is ideal through the closed fireplace (Fogo de Montanha) and the fire brick heating - also during winter. The house maid comes for 2 hours every day Monday to Saturday and cleans the house. Depending on the season, the pool service will come 2 to 3 times a week to clean the pool. The garden is cared for by a gardener. They will water the plants 2 to 3 times a week during the dry period. The house management on site speaks English, German and Portuguese.

Fantastic week in the beautiful Algarve

  • 5 of 5

The villa is everything the other reviewers have said, and more, and the photographs don't do it justice. The whole experience of booking through HomeAway was excellent, Nicolai the owner was extremely helpful in all correspondence and the villa is stunning and with everything you could need for a perfect break, including wifi throughout and inflatables etc for the pool, which was refreshingly cool even in the July sun. The only thing lacking was a few more English channels on the TV, although we hardly had time to watch it anyway.

The villa is only a 2 minute walk from the tennis club, which is very nice and has an eat-all-you-can buffet every Tuesday for only 12 Euros and 50 cents each (but you need to book by the Sunday before). There are lots of good eating places in Carvoeiro which is a 5 minute drive away or a 20 minute walk - we drove down at night, got a taxi back for between 5 and 8 Euros and walked back down in the morning to pick the car up. For sightseeing I can thoroughly recommend the boat tour of the sea caves, which go from Carvoeiro beach, as well as the dolphin watching tours that go from nearby Ferragudo. The sand sculptures at the Fiesa exhibition are incredible and well worth a visit.

To summarise - a fantastic villa in an excellent location in a beautiful country - what more could you want?!

The perfect choice!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed Casa Corrida where we spent with our family a winter month. We were welcomed with flowers in the living-room and on the terrasse, and felt at home right away.The house is comfortable, nicely designed, immaculate and well equipped. The heating system and the fireplace (with wood at disposal), as well as international channels were very much appreciated.

A beautiful garden, very well maintained, and with a lot of flowers makes the landscape around the house very, very pleasant for a leisure walk.

Carvoeiro has a lovely beach with great walking areas, even near the house, on top of the cliffs.

Definitely, we hope to have a chance to come back to this beautiful place.

This villa surpassed all our expectations, it was beautiful, bright and spacious, my immediate reaction was that I would return, I was so impressed with the place. The furnishings are lovely, there's an abundance of crockery etc and every conceivable utensil is available.. The outside seating areas /BBQ were fantastic and the sun shone on the pool for 12 hrs each day. The only thing that didn't suit our party was the depth of the was too deep for even the adults to stand in which is great for swimming but not so good for holding up kids learning to swim. The gardens are beautiful, and provide so much space and privacy in such a peaceful location.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for writing the review. Yes, the pool is more for swimmers. When we renovated the villa we added stairs to the pool so there is a small area you can stay with small children. Looking forward to welcome you again.

Lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous spacious villa with everything you need for a holiday. We travelled with our 2 children, anything we needed was looked after immediately. It was great to have someone come and clean also as when on your holidays that is the last thing you wish to do. There are some nice restaurants close by and it's a great spot for touring. Our kids loved the pool and although it's very deep there are steps down in to it which they were able to sit on and play in the water. They also loved that there were a few toys in the house that they were able to play with, all in all a great house, loads of room and very well managed.

Enjoyable Villa- Not Great Internet Access

  • 4 of 5

Very nice well appointed villa and excellent location.

You will need a car as most places to shop and eat are not easy walking distance with very steep hills.

Beds were comfortable but we suggest you bring your own pillows

Internet access was difficult and slow. You are paying extra for this service yet the service is spotty at best. Better to visit the town center for getting any real work done via Internet.

Be sure to get a map of the villas for the country club BEFORE your arrival. It is not as easy to find as the owners suggest in their description and final details sent to us prior to our arrival. There are NO SIGNS at the main entrance of the club area to direct you. It took us an extra hour of hunting and even when we stopped at the main office they did not provide us with any specific instructions. Don't want to start off your vacation being annoyed about something that could easily have been avoided.

Owner's Response: Dear guest. Thank you for writing this review. Sorry you had problems in finding the villa. This was the first feedback that way. We provide the description since 3 years. Even the address of the villa is findable in google maps. Sorry for the internet access. But there is no fee for this service only a deposit which the guests get back at the end. The internet access will be changed to fixed internet access with better connection. It would be a pleasure to welcome you again.

Amazing villa!

  • 5 of 5

Clearly furnished to a high level and manages to be rustic and modern at the same time.

It has the benefit of having neighbours (who we never saw) but at the same time totally secluded.

We were slightly unlucky that the weather wasn't warm enough (23) to use the pool much but when we did we were really impressed at how beautifully clean the water was.

Very quiet area which suited us fine.

Overall very enjoyable holiday.

Carvoeiro is a former, beautiful, picturesque fishing village, which has turned into a popular resort. A lot of small bars and restaurants and of course the beautiful beach embedded in the impressive cliff landscape form the city's image.
