Carvoeiro Villa Rental Photos and Description

1 twin bedroom + 1 basic children bedroom, 1 bathroom

Unique villa with rustic charm; a special little hideaway in a perfect setting, actually built into the cliff face of Carvoeiro. The villa enjoys hypnotic views of the sunset and the ocean; the ideal villa for romantics who appreciate warm lazy evenings and who will find the sunroof of special benefit. All one has at the bottom of the garden is the sea. The village is literally a few minutes downhill by foot, therefore car hire is not necessary.

A newly fitted kitchen was installed in 2010.

Guestbook comments from the manager

wonderfull place


September 2014

Casa Refugio is a tiny very charming villa with a stunning view over the sea.

We are looking forward to our next stay there.

The property was clean and the maid and the gardener were very friendly and did a good job.

I would definitely recommend this villa.

A little bit of paradise in a fab location

  • 3 of 5

The Villa is set in a fabulous location really close to the beach, bars and restaurants and the pool and views were amazing. The villa is a bit dated except for the kitchen and clearly Portuguese but this all added to the charm, I do think it is a place for 2 as the children's room is very small. It was perfect for us as a couple and I would love to go back, it was a little bit of paradise just around the corner from town so the best of both.

Owner's Response: I thank this client for taking the time to do a review and am pleased that they enjoyed. The comments are right ; that is that the villa charming, in a wonderful location but does retain many old Portuguese features. It is stated that the second bedroom is very small and very basic and in real terms I actually agree that the villa is more suited to just 2 people

Lovely property but needs updating.

  • 3 of 5

Beautiful view of the sea. It's a lovely villa but needs updating. The villa is in a brilliant location near to shops and restaurants. The villa is clean but the beds, curtains and soft furnishings are a tired. The bathroom needs updating and lighting could do with updating. I would recommend this villa because if its vista.

Another great holiday in Casa Refugio

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed another relaxing three weeks at Casa Refugio. This is our third stay in the villa and the location is second to none. We hope to return again next year although it would be good to see some improvements to the bathroom before then as is particularly in need of some upgrading. The maid service is excellent and Mario extremely helpful.

Wonderful location. Carvoeiro's best kept secret.

  • 5 of 5

We first stayed at Refugio in 1989 and discovered its ideal location. We have since returned on a couple of occasions recently and look forward to doing so again in the near future. It is ideally suited for a couple and, although just a short walk down the hill to the town centre, it is quiet and not overlooked. In fact it is one of Carvoeiro’s secrets being in one of the most photographed views on the Algarve but totally hidden from sight. We found it quaintly but charmingly furnished with everything one could want and the maid service was very good. The pool is excellent and the beautiful garden overlooking the ocean will always provide a shaded spot if needed. The views of the sun setting over the sea are spectacular. We love it!
