About Rosmarie Kroetenheerdt

A family property since 1973, constantly modernized.

Rosmarie Kroetenheerdt purchased this Villa in 1973

Why Rosmarie Kroetenheerdt chose Vale de Centianes

The house was purchased when Carvoeiro sill was a small and cosy fishing village.. The village has changed consderably, but our house has kept it´s charme.

What makes this Villa unique

almost wiithout any neighbours, however in walking distance to the village center and close to the beach, A big garden with a pool almost hidden from outside views. A property which you hardly find again in Carvoeiro.

                                                                      We have experienced the greatest holiday of the past years in the Castelo do Mar. With 6 people, 3 children and 3 adults, we spent two wonderful weeks in the house and on the beach.

                                                                      The Castelo, with its extensive gardens and its swimming pool is a perfect holiday home and a paradise for children and parents. The nearest beach can be reached within walking distance in a few minutes.

                                                                      Due to careful and detailed furnishing, a fantastic kitchen and numerous seating and dining areas the holiday is truly a dream.

                                                                      Our stay became by the excellent care by waiters in the house and garden into a genuine recovery

                                                                      The holiday has been rounded off by excellent restaurants in the vicinity, numerous shops and great beaches.

                                                                      We'll be back, that's for sure.

                                                                      We have just returned from two weeks at this fantastic villa. The house, gardens and pool are superb. Everything is very well equiped. I cannot recommend this place highly enough & we have just booked for next year! It is close enough to walk to small supermarkets,restaurants and the town square.We managed two weeks without a car very easily - even a taxi ride to Slide 'n Splash was only €10 and well worth a visit.

                                                                      Terrific location for an ideal holiday


                                                                      Mixed Generations, Glasgow, Scotland.

                                                                      We had a wonderful holiday at the Castelo Do Mar at the beginning of May. The booking was organised in a friendly and helpful manner and the villa lived up to expectations. The pool was heavenly and safe for my 3 year old grandson. Ideal having the self contained bedroom and bathroom upstairs when there are different generations. The terrace is great for outside meals and BBQ. The local manager was very helpful and friendly. The distance from the town is just right for walking off a meal out. No hesitation in recommending this lovely place.

                                                                      What a fantastic holiday at Castelo do Mar

                                                                      HappywithCastelodoMarNorthern Ireland

                                                                      This is a beautiful villa in a lovely location with great gardens. Pick your own figs when in season! Great to be able to walk to town and beach so car not needed(but nice to have to go shopping/touring)

                                                                      The kitchen was so well equipped, everything you could ever need. All the spices and oils etc were a lovely touch.

                                                                      Eating and sitting outside was a delight as there were tables and seating available in so many areas that you were spoiled for choice!

                                                                      Great to have Telephone and Internet access available.

                                                                      Lovely pool and the owners were there the day we arrived and made us so welcome and gave us good tips on good cheap wines!

                                                                      A Piece of Heaven

                                                                      We spent a magical week at Castelo Do Mar in June 2007. All the pics you see of the villa on the website don't actually do it justice, it really is fabulous. The enclosed pool is a huge plus, if like us you have young kids.

                                                                      10 mins walk to the restaurants and bars, 5 mins from 2 beaches and a short car journey to many many more it really is ideally located.

                                                                      We loved our week so much...we're going back for 2 weeks this year. Cant wait!!

                                                                      xyaBonn - NRW

                                                                      Wir fünf - Großeltern, Eltern und fünfjährige Tochter - erlebten einen wunderschönen, zweiwöchigen Urlaub Anfang Juni 2009 in Carvoeiro.

                                                                      Die Villa Castello de Mar bietet einfach alles was das Herz begehrt:

                                                                      Gepflegtes großzügiges Haus, Ambiente, liebevolle Einrichtung mit Niveau, stilvolle Plätze zum Essen und Genießen, ein riesiges Grundstück mit viel Bewuchs, einen sehr privaten Pool und vieles Mehr. Die Villa liegt fußläufig zu zwei Badestränden und zur wildromantischen Felsenküste. Der Ort Carvoeiro ist in ca. 10 - 15 Minuten gut zu Fuß zu erreichen.

                                                                      Anlage und Haus sind sehr sauber und tiptop gepflegt; die Betreuung durch Vermieter, Verwaltung vor Ort und das Hauspersonal ist wunderbar. Ein rundum schöner Ort mit Privatheit vor dem allgemeinen Tourismusbetrieb und vielen Rückzugsmöglichkeiten für jeden Einzelnen.

                                                                      Prädikat: Ausgezeichnet und gerade für kleine Gruppen bis 6 Personen sehr zu empfehlen - wir wollen jedenfalls wiederkommen!

                                                                      The villa is at 1.5 km outside of the spectacular former fishing village Carvoeiro and close to two beaches, Centianes beach being 400m away. There are almost no neighbours – therefore it is very private. Golf: 3 Golf courses close by, 1x9-holes Vale do Milhio 1,5 km, 2x18-holes Gramacho and Pinta ca. 5 km, and several others in the near vicinity.
