A Portuguese paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying in the Carvoeiro area of Portugal and the Villa Maria in Vale de Centianes was definitely the highlight of our holiday.

We loved the spacious private garden and large sun terrace around the pool. There are plenty of very comfortable sun beds but if you want to find some shade you can tuck yourself away on one of the sofas under the canopy.

The villa feels really spacious with four bedrooms that are all a really good size and have large bathrooms - no arguing here about who will have the smaller bedroom!

The villa had everything you need - a real home from home but with the luxury of the pool and terraces. Watching the sunset from the top roof terrace is a must.

It was so handy to be able to walk 2 minutes up the road to the well stocked local supermarket or to have breakfast or a night cap in the popular Helger's Bar.

A great area of Portugal but it was Villa Maria that made it such a great holiday for us.

We were lucky enough to have stayed at Villa Maria for a week to celebrate my mums 60th birthday and we were not disappointed. The villa inside has something for everyone, a fully equipped kitchen, comfy beds, a bathroom for every bedroom, a utility room, a dining room and a living room with a large TV. There is another TV that has various game consoles available for use which is great to keep the kids amused while you’re having a nice lie in! Outside, there is fencing all the way around and a large gate at the entrance so you know any children are safe. The swimming pool is the highlight and kept children and adults alike amused for many hours. There is an outside bbq and large outside dining table which means eating in is easy and comfortable. In the evening you can take the stairs to the top of the villa and watch the most amazing sunset across the sea, bliss!

Literally a stone throws away is a small shop that stocks all the necessities, a cafe/ bar and pizza restaurant which are very convenient. There are loads more places to eat a short walk away or in the town which is very close by, and there is an excellent choice for vegetarians which I know is often not the case abroad.

I cannot rate this villa highly enough and hope to be going back again very soon

I have been lucky enough to have stayed in this villa on two occasions and cannot fault it in any way what so ever. The owners of this property have spared no expense when refurbishing and fitting it out even down to having luggage scales in the bedroom so you can check that your suit cases are not overweight before you leave for the airport. Decent hairdryers are also provided. (bonus!!)

This is a five star accommodation bedrooms and bathrooms all to an extremely high standard. The garden ground is superbly maintained as is the swiming pool.

Its location is idea for several beaches one wintin 5 mins walking distance with a reasonably priced restaurant right on the beach. Local shops and restaurants also within walking distance. If you do not have a car there is a very reliable family run taxi firm with very reasonable fares to take you to beaches and towns further afield should you wish to leave the villa for the odd day.

I have no hesitation in recommending this property to my friends and colleagues and in fact have done so on several occasions.

All I can say is that I cannot wait to go back again and live the life of luxury for a week or two.

The listings description is very accurate. Highly recommend you try it.

Just as impressive second time around.....

  • 5 of 5

Well I said we were going back and we did.... We have just arrived home following our second stay in this lovely villa.

As mentioned before Villa Maria is in a great location and we had fun finding new secluded coves as well as visiting some old favourites from the last trip. Found a couple more great restaurants too....!

The Wifi is a great addition and was very useful allowing us to use the laptop to look up information and locations as well as to stay in touch with those at home.

What more could you ask for.....

  • 5 of 5

The Villa Maria is a truly wonderful place to stay equiped with everything you need to ensure a great holiday.

We stayed for a week and eat somewhere different most nights - Everywhere we tried was good value ranging from relaxed to more formal dining.

If you are like us and prefer not to cook there are even great breakfasts available just around the corner!

We hired a car for part of our stay to explore a bit more of what the area has to offer and were not disappointed.... Loads of great secluded beaches!

There are so many places to see in the world it is rare that we go back to the same place but we have booked our return visit, which prompted this review, and cant wait to get there!! We are told the WiFi is now up and running too which is great news and will make it even better for us.

I love Villa Maria.

Opening the curtains to a view of over the pool with the Autumn sun rising is fabulous! It's location is ideal - less than 5 minutes walk to local shops where you can pick up essentials, beach is 10 minutes walk & town 20 minutes.

You'd struggle to eat breakfast, lunch or dinner in the same place twice during a 2 week stay there are so many different resturants ranging from beach cafe to A la Carte!

The Villa's recent refurbishment makes you feel like you're walking into a first class hotel, it's spacious yet cozy with stone heaters keeping it nice & warm.

A 5 minute walk to the cliffs will reward you with stunning views. You can walk for miles along signed paths all the way along the coast, stopping off at cafes for refreshment.

The people are very friendly & make your holiday immediately relaxing as they speak good English.

You dont have to walk anywhere, the recommended taxi company run by Vasco & his brother is very reliable, friendly & resonably priced.
