About Mr and Mrs Honour

My wife and I, both live in Portugal. We own a villa in Carvoeiro but regularly go back to England to visit our three daughters. We have lived in Portugal for nine years but have been regular visitors here for the last twenty seven years.

We first bought an apartment in Albufeira in 2001 and have spent many enjoyable holidays there, where we have made many friends and have fallen in love with the people and the country.

After much searching we found our dream villa in Carvoeiro which we have spent all our time renovating and updating the villa to the standard it is now at,we have many more plans and will continue to keep the villa at a high and comfortable standard.

Mr and Mrs Honour purchased this villa in 2010

What makes this villa unique

This is situated close enough to enjoy the walk into Cavoeiro town but far enough away to be peaceful ensuring a nice relaxing holiday for all the family.

Stunning villa in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from an amazing holiday at Villa Casa Brava. The villa is stunning and very spacious. We loved the outdoor area, the pool was large and so warm with pool heating. There was plenty of areas to sit and we really took advantage of the barbecue and bar. It was so pleasant to sit out in the evening.

The villa is within walking distance to the square in Carvoerio, where we enjoyed the entertainment, although the taxis are only 5 euros if you don't want to walk back up the hill. The cliff top walk is a must and we were certainly ready for the cold beer at the bar in the cliff. There are also two beaches that you can walk easily walk to.

Tracey, the owner, was so helpful. We often stay in villas but this is the first time that we have had such a personal welcome.

I would definately recommend this villa and hope to return one day.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday at Casa Brava, we had everything at the Villa that we needed, everything is new, modern and maintained to a very high standard. We were a mixed group of adults and children, there was plenty of space for everyone to have peace and quiet and then come together as a group. We all really enjoyed our stay at the Villa, Tracey is great, so helpful and works really hard to make sure your stay is relaxing.

Would really recommend this villa and would definitely stay again in the future.

"Home from home"

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have stayed in this villa on several occasions now and it is like a "home from home".

The hosts, Bill and Tracey, are approachable, friendly and accommodating - for example, they kindly picked up a few bits for the family prior to arrival and have provided some great recommendations for restaurants in Carvoiero (e.g. Bon Bon, Ele & Ela and Villa Medici).

The villa itself is fabulous - it is large, spacious and fully equipped. The family and I enjoy taking full advantage of the private pool (and outdoor bar!) during the day, and the BBQ , outdoor bar and outdoor patio space in the evening. When the family and I choose to eat out, the villa is ideally located being only a 15 to 20 minute walk from Carvoeiro - far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet, and close enough to stumble home after a night out! A taxi is cheap enough (approx EUR 5) in the event that walking is an issue.

Bill and Tracey have looked after the villa during our stays at the villa, which provides comfort knowing that they are available if required, and the care that they take is evident from the fact that the villa is always clean and well-maintained.

Would definitely recommend, and have recommended, the villa to family and friends. It is great value for money, and the family and I have created some excellent memories at the villa.

Absolutely superb villa in perfect location!!

  • 5 of 5

We have just come back from a 12 day stay at this villa and we absolutely loved it. The villa itself is beautiful, spacious and modern. It is set in an ideal location, close enough to walk to all the local restaurants/ bars/ beach but slightly out of the way from the hustle and bustle of the main strip in carvoeiro so perfect for a relaxing holiday.

The villa was clean and well maintained at all times and the owners were very friendly and helpful upon check-in. I would highly recommend this villa to anyone and we will definitely be revisiting next year!!

A gem of a property in lovely Portugal

  • 4 of 5

We were two families sharing this villa, and we were really impressed with it from arriving through the electric gates. Tracey was there to meet us and go through everything with us, and then left us to our own devices to get settled in. The photos really don't do the villa justice as it was gorgeous and very well kept. The bedrooms were very spacious and the beds were comfortable. It would have been nice to have a full length mirror in the bedrooms, and also a wardrobe in the largest of the two rooms, as having to share was a little bit awkward when all trying to get ready to go out at night. The villa was well equipped with plenty of crockery - even though we didn't do much self catering. Everything was spotlessly clean, we really would struggle to find fault. The pool area is kept lovely and clean and the pool size was amazing for us all jumping in and having lots of fun. It is the best villa we have stayed in. Two downsides for us were 1) the long walk down to Carvoerio centre - which took us almost 25 minutes to the beach and restaurants/shops there, although there are some really nice restaurants closer to the villa at around 12 mins walk - beware - do not wear high heels as the cobbled streets are quite dangerous! We loved it at Villa Medici Italian Restaurant, The Wolf Restaurant and Laterna Restaurant, and 2) it would have been nice to have a safe deposit box in the villa for our valuables. It would be good to hire a car to have a look further around the surrounding areas.

All in all - we all really enjoyed staying at the villa and would highly recommend it to our friends.

A gem private and secure.

  • 5 of 5

When entering through the electric gates first impressions were plenty of room to park several cars, clean, private, and nicely laid out gardens.

Inside although an old property had been refurbished stylish and modern, nicely laid out with bedrooms at both ends and the living area centrally situated. The pool was one of the nicest we have ever had large, warm (we had it heated) and easy access. Lots of sunbeds, outside seating areas and plenty of areas where you could escape to the shade. It was a 10min leisurely walk down to the coast and a little further into the middle of Carvoeiro. The owners were helpful and lived close by so were on hand for any advice or problems. Good restaurants within walking distance downhill and taxis are cheap enough for anyone who would struggle walking uphill.

There is a cliff top walkway and if you are lucky enough you may spot the dolphins enjoying themselves. We went walking early morning and were lucky enough to see a pod of dolphins around 20 of them and quite big diving in and out of the water.We were all golfers and there is no shortage of good courses within an easy drive. We had a great time will definitely go back and certainly have no reservations in recommending to friends/family try it you wont be disappointed.
