Overview

Carvoeiro area Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 8+2, close to beach, **POOL HEATING INCLUDED!**

Casa das Flores «AL» is a single storey villa and, we understand, the former 'show house' for this quiet residential development. Set in a third of an acre plot overlooking the first green of the golf course at Vale de Milho; approximately a mile and a half east of the popular former fishing village of Carvoeiro. Tennis courts, shops, a number of restaurants and Centianes beach are all within easy walking-distance of the villa. Riding, sailing, diving, water sports and deep-sea fishing are also available within short distances. The house is fully compliant with the Portuguese LICENSING LAWS for holiday rental properties. Prices INCLUDE POOL HEATING and unlimited, secure WiFi. Please be aware that we have a strict policy of NO SMOKING in the house and anticipate that guests will respect what is our only 'house rule'.

Carvoeiro: Is a delightful former fishing village just a short drive, or twenty-or-so minute walk, from the villa. The town accommodates most holiday needs with its tourist information centre, bars, banks, pharmacy, moped, car and bicycle rental outlets and a huge variety of restaurants. The central square leads directly on to the beach backed by sandstone cliffs so typical of the Algarve. The coast road leads east and west from the square to a number of secluded coves.

What to do?: Boat trips can be taken from the beaches at Carvoeiro and Benagil to less accessible beaches, coves and caves along the coast. Horse riding, Snorkelling, Tennis and water sports are all available nearby. There are also two water parks ('Slide and Splash' is our preference) and ‘Zoomarine’, a marine theme park, all within a short drive. The tranquillity of the mountains, the pine forests of Monchique and the ancient Moorish walled town of Silves, the latter only 15 kilometres away, make pleasant inland excursions. Alternative, but equally enjoyable, excursions can be made to the old port of Portimao and to Lagos.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“We returned from your Villa late last night and just wanted to thank you for helping to make our holiday so special. Everything was just perfect. Your Villa is really beautiful and the photos do not do it justice. The welcome pack was a lovely added extra as we arrived at 10pm at night and the children were really hungry. ... The men played golf and it was hard to drag the children away from the pool. All agreed that they would like to book again next year. ... Once again a great big thank you, we will certainly recommend your Villa to our friends and family and will be in touch soon. We stay in a Villa every year and this has been the best by far.”

A wonderful week

  • 5 of 5

The Villa exceeded all our expectations. It was extremely comfortable, spotlessly clean and maintained to the highest standard. We arrived fairly late in the evening and were very grateful for the comprehensive welcome pack (which was more than enough to feed 8 of us) and the bottles of wine. Catering was easy, there is a large well stocked supermarket a short drive a way and the kitchen is very very well equipped. Beaches and a water park are close by, but we were loath to leave the beautifully clean pool and lovely garden. I would highly recommend this villa.

Owner's Response: We're delighted that you all enjoyed what we hope will be just your first holiday at Casa das Flores! It's very encouraging to know that we're getting things about right - but we'll not allow ourselves to become complacent and will continue to work hard to maintain standards.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! Beautiful villa inside and out and in a lovely area of the Algarve. We went with 3 different families and all the bedrooms are quite separate with either en-suite or bathroom next to the bedroom which meant we weren't all on top of each other despite 3 toddlers running around! But what makes it perfect is the attention to detail in the villa. Plenty of beach towels provided (with numbers embroided on them so you know which one belongs to who!), children's toys, games, travel plug adaptors, a 'wine' library, Isobel the cleaner, well stocked kitchen with ample plates, glasses etc, the list goes on...

Fantastic pool and BBQ areas.

I honestly cannot say anything negative about this villa!

There are plenty of restaurants, supermarkets etc nearby and the local beaches are stunning especially the Marina beach which is short drive away but well worth it!

I'd love to return :)

Fantastic Villa - 1st Class!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first ever villa holiday and it was fantastic! Gareth was brilliant in answering any questions we had before our arrival and everything so was so well organised.

The villa was beautifully clean, as was the pool. We spent many hours along with my niece and nephew playing in the pool. Gareth & Jane really have thought of everything.

I can honestly say the villa surpassed all our expectations and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending it.

Thank you Gareth & Jane for making our time so enjoyable and we hope to be staying again with you soon.

The Harris Family.

Another fantastic holiday in this stunning villa

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd time we have stayed in this villa and have fallen in love with it all over again. We travelled as a family of 6 adults and 2 young children. This villa really is a home from home and has everything you need to enjoy your stay. It is perfect for a family with young children due to being on one level.

We really can't praise this villa, it's owners and the area enough. In fact my husband and I are already discussing when we want to come back.

A perfect first holiday with our 9 month old

  • 5 of 5

After 9 months of a rather reclusive life with our new son, we decided it was time for him to make use of his shiny new passport.

After the krypton factor challenge of getting the whole family through the flight, it was an absolute delight to arrive at the villa; the complimentary welcome items in the fridge were rapidly devoured!

Whether it was the sun, fresh air, walks to the beach, or daily swims, our son slept almost every night for a mind boggling 12 hours, which we all reaped the benefits of!

I can't say we explored much of the area, but we were certainly all very sad to be driving back a very short week later.

We can't wait for the next trip out!

Impressively spacious villa

  • 5 of 5

We spent an amazing weeks holiday in this fabulous villa. The villa was so comfortable and every attention to detail taken care of. Its location was perfectly positioned beside the golf course, making it ideally suited for a relaxing, tranquil holiday, yet only a short drive to the beach. We enjoyed eating out in the nearby restaurants, but the kitchen was so excellently equipped, making catering at home not a problem. The weather was particularly kind to us. I really hadn't expected the first week of October to be so sunny. I certainly wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property with its lovely pool, to anyone wanting to holiday in Portugal.

Casa das Flores is situated in the quiet residential area of Vale de Milho (valley of corn) overlooking the 1st green of the Vale de Milho golf course, approximately a mile and a half east of the popular former fishing village of Carvoeiro. It is a little over half a mile to the nearest beach, Centeanes, and about the same distance to the closest supermarket at Rocha Brava.

Golf: The Algarve is a golfers paradise and Carvoeiro has more than its fair share of interesting courses. Casa das Flores overlooks the first green of the 9-hole, par-3 Vale de Milho course whilst the famous nearby complex at Penina offers three courses designed by Sir Henry Cotton: the 18 hole Championship, the double 9 Resort and the 9 hole Academy. Other nearby courses include Alto Golf, Vale da Pinta, Gramacho and Morgado (opened in 2003). The Vale de Milho clubhouse, two hundred yards from the villa, offers an especially good English breakfast!
