Det har været en meget dejlig oplevelse at bo i dette hus. Værtinden er meget venlig og utrolig servicerede. Vi har modtaget stor service i form af hushjælp til vask og rengøring samt rengøring af pool og have. Fantastisk. Huset har de faciliteter man kan ønske sig, og området er meget velholdt og charmerende. Vi kan kun give vores bedste anbefalinger og ønsker helt sikkert at komme tilbage til dette vidunderlige sted. Der er mange gode spisestedet i byen samt gode golfbaner i kort køreafstand. Strandene er spetakulære.

Great villa, great location - we loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Carolina was beautiful and very well-equipped, even with some essentials (and wine!) in the fridge when we arrived. The maid service was excellent and beds comfy, plus the villa was more spacious then we had anticipated from the photos, so that was a bonus. We paid the extra for air-con, though it didn't work out that expensive - even on very hot days we just used it for a short time in the evenings before bed and that was enough. The pool was slightly chilly but OK for us - we used it every day as did our toddler, and we enjoyed breakfast on the terrace and a couple of BBQs too. The location was great for exploring the region - gorgeous beaches & lovely restaurants not far away. The local town has a good selection of cafes and shops too, and Apolonia near Lagoa is the nicest supermarket I've ever been in! I'm sure we'll be back - this was a bit of a treat holiday for us but actually we felt it worked out really good value for money.

Excellent Villa to relax in and wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

This was the fourth visit to Carolina but the first under new owners Carol and Claude.We were met by them and shown around,although we pretty much knew where everything was.The new decor and little touches really were impressive,even better than our previous visits. For those looking to book this great villa,you won't be disappointed as this fantastic location is only a short walk into Carvoeiro and all those great restaurants,Villa Medici,Premaveria and Julios are but three. After a great night out,it's only 5 euros cab back to the villa. The villa has everything you need and the owners are always available to provide help in anyway or recommendation of somewhere to visit.Once again we have had a great holiday,thanks Carole and Claude,we will be back.

Home from Home

  • 5 of 5

We have just enjoyed a lovely 10 day break at Casa Carolina. With an ideal location, a 10 minute walk to the beach and shops, not overlooked and being fully equipped, this villa is perfect. But the icing on the cake is Carole and Claude, the owners. They were there to welcome and show us around; they were friendly, informative and it felt as if we were renting off family! We saw Carole a few times during our stay and she is lovely. They provided a 'Welcome Pack' which was fantastic as we arrived too late to go shopping and it was so nice to go somewhere where hand wash, washing up liquid, etc, was included.

There is a folder in the villa with information on shops, restaurants, beaches, etc, and Carole even went to the trouble to print off further information when she knew what was of interest to us - a real personal touch.

The villa is about 50 minutes from Faro airport and an easy drive to Portimao, Silves and Alvor, which has a stunning beach. The Black Runner boat trip to see the Dolphins and go in and out of the caves along the coastline along Carvoeiro was great fun.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this villa (and Carole and Claude).

Fantastic Villa - Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Carolina now on several occasions and this year we visited twice. It is a really lovely Villa in a first-class, quiet location. On our second visit this year we discovered the Villa ownership had changed hands and is now owned by Carole and Claude, who live in close proximity to Carolina. Although we had never had any complaints regarding the facilities available at the property on our arrival it was immediately noticeable the subtle improvements Carole had made to the ambience - in a very short space of time. It really is a home from home. Carole and Claude could not have been more helpful and we were greeted on our arrival with a beautiful "Welcome Pack" which really got the holiday off to a great start. Needless to say our stay was more than special and tears were shed on our departure. We have already booked our two stays for next year and just can't wait to return.

We cannot recommend this Villa highly enough. Although in a quiet location everything is within easy reach. You can walk to the Village/Beach in just over 5 minutes where Restaurants and Shops abound. If you have a car there are so many wonderful beaches to explore in the area. However you also have the luxury of your own private pool which is pretty special.

What more can we say other than - Carole and Claude we are counting the weeks until we can return.
