Guestbook comments from the manager

We were 10 days in Carvoeiro in this wonderful accommodation. Although

(or because) the House is on a hill, we had a fantastic view of the Bay and in April we were able to enjoy a leisurely breakfast in the sunshine on the balcony. Our four children felt contented and enjoyed the House and pool. It was definitely not our last time there!

Excellent townhouse holiday at Colina Branca Carvoeiro.

  • 5 of 5

The townhouse is situated in Colina Branca which is a small development of townhouses in Carvoeiro. The property is perfectly situated occupieing an elevated position with excellent views over Carvoeiro.

The property provides both balconies and a roof terrace all of which are ideal for sunbathing, it also benefits from an excellent shared pool, the townhouse was exactly as described in the listing and is within walking distance of Carvoeiro which offers Shops both convenience and others, Restaurants, Bars as well as an excellent Beach.

Susie the property manager called during the first day to make sure that everything was OK, the townhouse was clean and very comfortable with excellent facilities.

We would certainly recommend this townhouse to anyone and we look forward to returning next year all in all a wonderful holiday.

Thanks.

Joan & Stephen Taylor.

Great Apartment, will definitely go back

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed in Carvoeiro last year, we knew the area and found the property to be actually bigger than we expected. It was very well equipped inside and there were ample sun beds on the terraces/balconies. The terrace leading from the living area was of a good size, and had a fantastic view down to the beach and out to sea.

The sun terrace on the roof was an excellent addition, which caught the sun all day and, as our property was on the top level, was not overlooked and very private.

Being on the top level meant that there was either a steep hill or 150 steps to contend with from street level, but we were aware of that and you have to expect that in Carvoeiro.

The range of restaurants in the village offers a great choice for eating out, and we had a great meal and friendly service everywhere we ate -only eating in the house twice, and going to Taste Restaurant twice, thoroughly enjoying it both times.

The pool area for the properties was on the bottom level, again bigger than we expected, very well maintained, but surprisingly quiet on most days - probably due to the short distance from the beach - which was great.

Had and great 10 days, we should have booked longer and will be back.

Colina Branca was absolutely delightful

  • 5 of 5

The house at Colina Branca was absolutely delightful. It had the feel of a lighthouse with two spiral staircases and each room had its own balcony. The bedrooms were spacious and equipped with large wardrobes and cupboards. The top floor looked out onto a wonderful view of the sea over the domed roofs of the other houses.

We particularly liked the pool and spent long hours there. It was private and surrounded by flowering plants. The pool was an adequate size to have a decent swim and was 3 metres deep at one end, being shallow at the other. Plenty of sunbeds and parasols were available.

The house was only a short walk from the town which offered a good selection of restaurants and bars. There was a lively atmosphere with live music on several evenings and the beach was only five minutes away.

The cleaner came halfway through the week to clean and change the linen - good service

A real home from home in the perfect setting.

  • 4 of 5

This was our third visit to Carveiro and our second to Colina Branca. The house has everything you need to ensure a more than comfortable stay. Great sun terrace, cool fresh bedrooms and a well equipped kitchen. My parents travelled with us this year and they loved both the house and the village. We used the market most days and on the days we chose to eat out there was so much to choose from. We also received great support and advice for things we wanted to do from Susie at Holiday Rentals. A great family holiday.....see you next year!

Review of No 6 Colina Branca

  • 5 of 5

6 of us stayed in the Townhouse for a week in July (4 adults & 2 children).

We've been to Colina Branca for the last 4 years, however this was the first time we've stayed in one of the townhouses.

The house was spotless when we arrived with great modern facilities and an amazing view of the sea from the balcony over the rooftops of the town. The bedrooms and bathrooms were down a lovely spiral staircase which made the house feel quite traditional and moorish.

Although there was a fully fitted kitchen we didn't make much use of it as there are so many restaurants in Carvoeiro!, however very good to have a washing machine and separate roof terrace for drying clothes.

The balcony was well equipped with sun lounges, tables and chairs and was a complete sun trap. The male members of our party where very happy with Sky TV!

The maid came during the week and cleaned the apartment & changed all the beds and towels which an unexpected but welcome surprise.

The pool is great, there were always enough sun beds and there's always a friendly atmosphere - although it was a steep walk back up the steps to the townhouse!

The location of Colina Branca is brilliant with a very short walk into the main town (about 5 mins). There is private parking with the townhouse which is fantastic as Carvoeiro is packed with cars during the day so parking is difficult.

The whole of Carvoeiro is walkable and there are tons of places to eat & drink, the beach is fab and there are also lovely places that are easy to get to like Silves & Lagos.

Overall I would highly recommend both Carvoeiro and No 6 Colina Branca!

Colina Branca

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed at Colina Branca for the last 12 years as a family so we know the area well.

Last year stayed at this property which was well equiped and fully matched the description given.As always the maid service was excellent which ensured that the townhouse was clean and well maintained with no problems.Also able to use a good sized pool with loungers down a couple of flights of stairs which is great for families and while we were there was not crowded.

On arrival you will find a book containing full details of the local area and activities available plus contact numbers for problems/ emergencies etc.

The position of these properties means that it is easy to walk into town in approx 10/15mins.

In town you will find a good selection of bars and restaurants (plus nightclub for teenagers )to suite all tastes plus a small beach but this can get busy in high season.

Even though a car isn't essential we found that it was good to have one as there are some great beaches and places of interest within 30/60 minutes driving time.

All in all a great place for a holiday and would without doubt recommend it.

The Monchique mountain, which is the highest point of the Algarve, is just a short drive away, and the historic town of Silves, which was once the capital city of Portugal, with it's ancient castle and museums is also nearby.

For children, there is Slide and Splash water park and Aqualand, both only a 15 minute drive from Carvoeiro, and Zoomarine which is home to dolphins, seals and other marine life. The dolphin show is something spectacular for all the family to see, as well as the high diving show. Other nearby attractions include Carvoeiro tennis club, diving school, riding centre and beauty therapy and massage services.

There are several golf courses within a short driving distance from the townhouses including the SIlves Pestana course, and the famous Amendoeira Golf course which is the largest in Europe, with bowling and fitness centre among it's many facilities. Other nearby golf courses include the Pestana and Gramacho courses at Lagoa, and Morgado set in the Monchique mountain foothills. Slightly further away, but still only a 30 minute drive are courses at Praia da Luz to the West, and the championship course at Vilamoura to the East.

Discounted green fees and special packages are available on many of the courses.
