About Pamela Collins

We purchased this property initially as a holiday home and have since lived in it while we completed a total refurbishment. The apartment is very comfortable and is fully equipped to make your stay happy and memorable.

The swimming pool is just a few steps away with sunbeds and parasols. While the charming, bustling village of Carvoeiro, with numerous restaurants, bars and shops, is a four minute walk.

Should you want a little quiet time 'at home' the apartment has air conditioning and fast, free wifi. As well as a DVD player with a substantial variety of DVDs, also games and puzzles for the younger family members.

Pamela Collins purchased this apartment in 2007

Lovely property in lovely Carvoeiro

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely, well appointed apartment within a small, attractive development in the lovely village of Carvoeiro. Very well situated on the very edge of the village centre, albeit at the top of the slope up from the beach. This can be done by a series of gradual steps along the road with views over the beach or more directly by sets of steps leading straight up between buildings! Either way you are less than 5 minutes from the very heart of the resort, (though you may want to take a couple more minutes on the return!) Equally there are several excellent restaurants as you walk in, with the nearest only a couple of minutes away, and further options also available close by on the "out of town" side too.

The apartment itself is spacious with a good sized bedroom, very nice bathroom (shower), and open plan living space with fully equipped kitchen, comfortable seating and dining facilities as well as UK TV and air-conditioning. The property has views across the village at the front and at the rear there is another dining table on the small terrace area with a barbecue and drying facilities. A fairly high wall behind the property means there is no view but this shelter does help to keep the property cool and also means you are not overlooked. The development is modern and well laid out with well-tended gardens throughout. The development has only two buildings, each of two storeys with 6 apartments in each. This is the middle of three on the ground floor in the building on the left from the road. From the French windows at the rear there was about 10 paces to the foot of 6 or so steps leading to the good sized swimming pool which has a child's pool alongside and loungers and parasols dotted around. The pool and surrounding area were immaculate throughout our visit. The owner was extremely helpful with directions and arrangements throughout and has a lady who comes in to clean who was on call for any issues and also very helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Carvoeiro and found this an ideal base.

excellent apartment beautifully decorated, modern but with an Algarvian touch with all facilities you require.Loved that it was gated and only accessible by key. Very central for beach and town but very quiet given its proximity to both. Had the pool area to ourselves some days and just a few short yards to our patio area where we enjoyed a few lunches/dinners sitting in the late afternoon sun. Within 10-25 mins drive to some of the golf courses (Pinta,Gramacho,Silves.Salgados). Best restaurants are definitely Terroir,- service and food always first class year after year. Onze - never disappoints and Villa Medici if Italian is your favourite.Visit to the new Skybar at the Tivoli worth a visit at sunset.

Would definitely return, Pam and Larry are very lucky to have this wee Gem.

Great Property- Near to the beach, with a great pool

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this property, it was very convenient for the beach and the town.

The apartment was fully stocked with everything you would need throughout your stay.

The pool was not busy and most of the time we had it to ourselves which was great.

The town has increased in size since our first visit 12 years ago, and there are now a lot of great places to eat. A tip would be not to choose restaurants with "sea views" as you pay a premium for the food which can be found at better quality and cheaper price in places away from the "sea view area".

The only thing that I would say could be improved would be the directions to the property. As we arrived at 0100 we had difficulty finding the property as the coloured shutters that was mentioned in the directions could not be seen as it was dark, but eventually we managed to find it!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review and I'm very glad you enjoyed your stay. You made a good point about the higher prices in restaurants with sea views. I quite agree, especially given the vast choice of extremely good, affordable restaurants in Carvoeiro. I've taken note of the problem you had locating the apartment in the dark and will be resolving this issue with more photographs and some recognisable solar lighting for future guests. Should you wish to return you are most welcome. Pamela

Lovely apartment close to beach,restaurants and bars.

  • 4 of 5

Lovely bright and spacious apartment within a five minute walk to the beach,restaurants and bars. Plenty of room for the two of us in the apartment but I think any more people might have been a bit of a squeeze. Pamela was great to deal with from beginning to end.Only issue we had was the address we had to give the transfer company takes you about 200metres up the road but we found it after a short while.
