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 16 and 19 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.

What makes this villa unique

Everything you could want from a holiday that we can tailor to your needs.

You can walk to everything .....

There are a large selection of restaurants within walking distance that offer a variety of dishes and provide Portuguese gastronomy to Italian, Dutch, British, Thai, Chinese and Indian Cuisine.

Portamao 20 minutes Outside: The patio area is quite private and in the sun most of the time which creates a nice place to sunbathe, and has everything to enjoy alfresco living, including a coal BBQ.

Fabulous holiday in Carvoeiro

  • 5 of 5

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

Fabulous holiday in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from week at the villa and it is fabulous. It is a real home from home, with everything that you need for a holiday. Jane was a great host and kept really good contact both on the lead up to and during the holiday.

The villa is in a great location, with easy access to the pool. It is about 5 minutes walk to the beach, although this is quite steep on the way back up. The area is lovely, with some great little restaurants.

I would definitely recommend and would love to visit again the future.

Great apartment in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Just back from a fab holiday in Carverio. The apartment was very spacious with everything you need and walkable to everything, we really liked the large light and airy bedroom upstairs. Jane was also really helpful, very accommodating and easy to reach. We went to lots of the beaches, the coastline is stunning and also used the hop on hop off bus that goes from right outside the apartment. We got it up the Trovolli sky bar which has amazing views and cocktails! Lots of lovely places to eat locally, also the broad walk is a really lovely walk. My daughter is 10 and was constantly occupied with the beaches, pool, slide and splash and tennis just down the road. Would definitely recommend both the apartment and Carveofor a brilliant holiday with loads to do for both adults and kids!

Beautiful villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th time holidaying in Carvoerio and by far the best place we have stayed in. The villa is beautiful and has everything you could possibly need. It's very spacious and the garden is lovely.

The town is only about a 5 minute walk but there are also some lovely restaurants so close to the villa so the location was fantastic.

We wished we had booked longer! Will definitely return to this villa again!

What a beautiful find - wonderful property with absolutely everything catered for - fab position

  • 5 of 5

We have just had a wonderful 10 days in March where the weather was warm and we were able to play all our golf sessions at the local club.

The town has made a concerted effort to remain open for the winter season which made dining and eating at lunchtime a pleasure .

The house is everything that you would want, it's spotlessly clean and furnished to a high standard.

The situation of the house makes it easy to walk into town and do some beautiful walks along the coastline without even getting in the car .

We loved our stay and would go again .

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.


Lagoa 5 mins drive, only another 5/10 minutes to Silves with its medieval cathedral and castle and historic market.

Lagoa wine district 5 minutes - see how wine is made.

West Coast Beaches 45 minutes - great surf.

Slide and Splash - 10 minutes in the car.

Monchique Spa - 25 minutes.

Tennis and fitness club - less that 3 mins drive.

Golf Clubs and driving range - 5 mins drive.

Further Details:

Easy access to supermarkets, shops and banks in the village within a beautiful 5 minutes walk.

Reception area (24 Hours) - for any immediate needs.

Aldi just opened up so costs can be kept low !
