Townhouse in Carvoeiro, Monte Carvoiero, Algarve, Portugal - Special place off the beaten track but beaches,leisure and entertainment are within 5 minutes walk
About Jane Sunnucks
We are a family of four that have been visiting Monte Carvoeiro for over 20 years, with and without children. The house has been decorated to our own taste as when we go anywhere we expect lovely, pretty surroundings, good beds and a wonderful place to relax and enjoy. We love the fact that you can walk everywhere and that the extensive fresh food restaurants and lovely wines can be enjoyed without worrying about driving home. Our children are now 21and 24 and we have enjoyed taking them at every age as the whole place is very child friendly for all ages and we look forward to allowing them to go on their own with their friends in a few years time. We particularly enjoy the beauty of the beaches and can recommend many and the pool allows you to relax if you want a day off from the sand!
Jane Sunnucks purchased this Villa in 2001
Why Jane Sunnucks chose Carvoeiro
We just love our house for the convenience for everything, the cool space is bigger than newly built properties. It has charm and character and has beautiful gardens with a wonderful cobbled square that is surrounded by restaurants within 2 minutes walk through the cobbled garden paths and the pool is just at the end of the winding path within under a minute. It is positioned within a 5 minute walk from the village which allows a little more exclusivity.

Lovely comfortable villa close to everything
Beautiful clean and well equipped villa. A short walk from everything. Jane was a wonderful host who kept in touch and was quick to respond to any questions. Lovely area, beautiful beach and town close by. Highly recommend!
Nice Villa in great location
Carvoiero is a lovely place for a holiday. The villa is nice and in a superb complex. The pool and nearby bars and restaurants are a real plus. We enjoyed bbqing and eating on the back patio which is warm and sunny during the day and in welcome shade at night. The town itself is a short walk away
Villa on the Monte
Good house. Really lovely shade to get put of the sun. Kitchen easy to work in.
My teenager enjoyed the first floor bedroom. Restaurants across the street should not be missed.
Beautiful home in a beautiful location.
Wow. What a lovely home from home. Within walking distance to all local amenities. We loved our stay, with our two children. Heated pool and pool bar were lovely.
Jane is so helpful and easy to deal with. Smooth journey from booking to leaving. Jane even asked what we liked to do and what age the children were and suggested days out and which beaches to go to.
Had a great 10 days away here. Will definitely return.
The villa contains everything you would expect from a high quality home. The cool box and Tupperware were used regularly as we packed up picnics most days to take with us on our days out.
We used the barbecue too on more than one occasion for our evening meal. Having a washing machine and outdoor area for drying clothes was a life saver with two boys!
Carvoeiro is such a beautiful place, great for families, and a great base for exploring the Algarve. Lots of lovely restaurants and bars, but with a very relaxed feel. Beautiful fishing village. Some lovely shops too.
We couldn’t have asked for anything more and would definitely recommend to a friend.
Thankyou for your lovely review and I am so glad you could enjoy it as much as we do
Lovely spacious Villa
Lovely spacious villa with everything you need for a comfortable stay. The outside space is private and a good place to relax after a busy day at the beach or by the pool, both are close by. Perfect location. Excellent communication with Jane the owner. I would highly recommend staying there.
Fabulous holiday in Carvoeiro
Had a fabulous holiday in Casa mima, Carvoeiro. The house is in a great location, and has everything you could ask for. The pool is literally round the corner, with the town and beach no more than a 10 minute walk away. It made our first holiday away with our 7 month old grandaughter, daughter and son-in-law a total success with great memories - Thanks Jane
Special interest holidays:
If you are a keen cyclist we can discuss the option to include bikes for your holiday as it is a sport we enjoy. This area of Portugal is demanding, the roads are good quality and there are a selection of great hills that can push your fitness. The scenery is spectacular.
Tennis/Fitness club is also within 3 minutes drive and we can also discuss lessons/bookings etc as we can get a good discount.The fitness club is partucuarly good offering aerobics, power hour, zumba, etc with great enthusiastic teachers. Within the club is a pool, coffee shop and gym.
Town and beautiful beaches are all within 5/10 mins easy walking distance with caves to adventure into. The town has been redeveloped to promote less traffic as its quite small and quaint, it has been tastefully cobbled which adds to its fishing village charm. During the summer there are little stalls and live music by the beach in the evenings. We have also experienced beaches just on the West Coast which are exhilerating if you like the waves, about 45 minutes drive.
Beautiful walks directly from the house
Faro airport is 40 minutes away. Car hire is not essential as our villa is so conveniently positioned and we can organise car pick up to villa if required. If you dont mind driving, to save on cost, also look at flying to Lisbon...the drive down takes about 2 hours on a new motorway.
We can help advise you on car hire etc depending on what type of holiday you are looking for.
