Peace & Relaxation

  • 4 of 5

The Ideal place for those seeking peace & tranquility with just a small scattering of near neighbours & 1 cafe. A car is essential if you want to get out & about, however , once you have filled the fridge with food & drink there is no need to venture any further than the pool, as this property has everything you should need, & if it has'nt, Cristina or Maria are close by & will answer all your queries or solve your problems. We had a lovely relaxing time just laying around the pool area with a few books & some local wine.

Amazing Villa

  • 5 of 5

After searching far and wide for a suitable villa for my family's first sun holiday in 6 years we opted for Christina's villa near Estoi. Was i ever please we did, from our first day to our last, the villa was idea for my wife myself and 2 children (13/16) the pool are is amazing with plenty of shade for the sun shy, plenty of open areas for the sun seekers. The house had everything we wanted or needed and Christina was the perfect host. Nothing was too much trouble for her and gave us great recommendations for days out. The local bar is a great wee spot for a light bite and a cool pint of super bock. I cannot recommend this villa highly enough and would love to return.

  • 5 of 5

It's obvious Maria and Cristina their main priority is for you to feel at home and have everything you need to enjoy your stay.

We loved it and highly recommend Villa Cavaco.

We hope to come back soon!

To Maria: I miss my daily dose of your fresh & delicious figs! ;)

stunning views, stunning property

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of staying at this villa for my 22nd birthday and Portugal (estoi) was my very first holiday abroad in 22 years. What a destination to chose., between 26th and 31st of may 2015 spending a week relaxing by the pool soaking up some sun (the pool terrace gets hit with rays all day round), it's an absolutely stunning 2 bedroom villa with beautiful views and the perfect secluded location. With a 15 to 20 minute drive to faro and albufeira if you wish to venture this far about half an hour to 40 minute drive from the villa. The villa itself as I've already mentioned soaks up the sun all day on the pool terrace and having the waves and heating with the pool makes it all the better! The host on arrival was fantastic and very welcoming showing each aspect of the villa and was nice to feel welcome, leaving you to come and go and enjoy your holiday/getaway in peace, if ever a place to stay villa covacco is an amazing spot for the perfect getaway! Thank you very much for having us and I think we will be making a second stop by in the future!! 5 star *****

A wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

I can highly recommend this villa. We had a wonderful holiday and one of the most important factors to any holiday is the accommodation!

This tasteful, clean villa has all the key ingredients for a perfect stay!

The property had all the facilities listed all in great working order.

The villa owner Maria is a friendly and nothing was any trouble.

One of the most appealing feature is the pool and you certainly wont be disappointed, placed on a terrace with a shaded BBQ area made a wonderful day when "staying in".

We loved it that this property is out of the way and you will certainly need to hire a car if not driving over, but we wanted this getaway from it all place and what a perfect way to de-stress!

The gardens are beautiful and attract lots off butterflies, birds etc.

We had a wonderful holiday and do not have any hesitation in recommending this lovely villa.

It was our first visit to Portugal and wont be the last, we found the Portuguese warm and friendly, the food very good and found beaches, culture and weather to be perfect. The Euro goes further than home (UK)!

Would we go back to this villa? We certainly hope to!

Owner's Response: Mr & Mrs ARWID were in our villa for the one week with two lovely children we enjoyed having them and we would have no problem in recommending them to other properties or having them back again to stay with us would be a pleasure.

Our relaxing stay at this beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from the most relaxing week our family has ever had. Maria the owner was very helpful from the first time we contacted her up until when we left, with nothing being to much trouble for her.

The property is very clean and is maintained to a high standard. If you are looking for peace and relaxation then this is the place for you. Tucked away in the mountains you can sit around the pool looking out across the valley and forget about the busy lifestyle you have left behind.

A car is essential for your stay here as there are no shops and restaurants within walking distance however once you have stocked up the fridge you have everything you need within the villa to sit back and relax.

With two BBQ's available one upstairs by the pool and one downstairs in the garden there is plenty of choice on where to spend the evening enjoying a quite meal.

We was recommended a restaurant by Maria which is about 20 minuets drive away and if you have the opportunity to go then you must. With mountain views, great quality food and reasonably priced this again was the perfect restaurant.

Would recommend this property to anyone that wants to get away from the hustle and bustle of the typical tourist destination.

Will defiantly try and return next year.

Lots of places to either sunbathe or find some shade, depending on your preference. The villa is set in an upland rural area so one shop close by i.e, walking distance. If you are a fish lover you can almost OD on BBQed fish especially the small lobster-sized prawns to be found in the larger supermarkets. If you are in Olhao before 11am you can buy your fresh fish at the purpose built market - nice veg too. You can have a wonderful lunch at the House of Fish almost opposite the market in Olhao (pronounced 'alhayoon') You can also do a night out at the historic Pousada at Palacio Estoi, only a 15-20 minute. The boat trip to Ilha Deserta (guided tour) is truly worth the money. The dolphin watching tour is also a great hit. Villa Cavaco will remain in your thoughts for a long time and help to forget the long cold winters back home.
