About Samantha wright
I live in the UK with my partner, we used to holiday in the Algarve and fell in love with it, so ended up buying a villa there. Now we would like to share the experience with you hope you enjoy... that was 2011.Now 2013 well things have changed , we now live full time in the Algarve the weather is so lovely all year round, like anywhere we get the odd rainy day but still love it here, we find we can be outdoors so much more having this beautiful coast line on our door step is more than a delight, as you will see if you venture to Carvoeiro, even at Christmas we go onto the beach for a walk, take champagne down there New Years Day and meet friends, if you were coming for a special occasion I would be more that happy help you organise any event.
Samantha wright purchased this Villa in 2013

Really cannot say much more than my previous review but the fact we re visited the following year i suppose says it all. the place just gets better and better which is why our last visit was only for 5 days as it was fully booked and we could not get our full week. as per our first visit in 2015, the owners, manager and maids were a dream to deal with. the villa is perfect, the location great and Carvoeiro just keeps on improving whilst still retaining its charm. My wife told me not to put another review on or we won't get in for our next visit (but I am safe, we have already booked it!).
See you all again soon .
Exceptional Holiday Retreat
We stayed at Le Roque during the first week of September 2016 for a special family holiday, the party size being 11 adults and a toddler. We were all very excited to see the villa as the owner's listing and previous reviews looked incredible.
In the months leading up to our holiday, Sam the villa owner and Mario the property manager had provided much help and advice and had booked car hire, airport transfers and a boat trip on our behalf. They had also recommended local caterers, a yoga teacher and a musician who were all top class. They also provided details of an English language online shopping website which proved to be very useful as we were able to pre-book a very large delivery ready for when we arrived.
The villa surpassed expectations and is incredibly impressive - the description in the owner's listing and in previous reviews are not exaggerated. The owners have not overlooked anything in the design of the villa and have thought of everything you could possibly need in a comfortable holiday property. From the huge modern kitchen with coffee maker, ice machine and wine fridge, to the games room with pool table, the large family tv lounge, beautiful bedrooms and bathrooms and impressive entrance hall, each room exudes style and class.
The outside space is vast and equally stunning, all centred around the pool - lawn areas, lovely bougainvillaea and olive trees, huge garden lounge with great sound system, comfortable loungers and all with very handy access to a kitchen, cocktail bar and wine fridge! There are so many special features including the roof top lounge, outside terraces for each bedroom and poolside shower room. At night the whole outside space is decorated with automatic lighting including fairy lights in the trees making the villa look magical.
From the mid-week maid service to the generous welcome pack, help in restaurant reservations and friendly help and support, a big thank you to Sam and Mario for making this special place into an incredible holiday experience.
Ah thank you so much for your fabulous review ! We aim to please and its guests like you that make it all worth while, hope to see you all again
SUPERB VILLA IN A GREAT LOCATION
My husband & I stayed at Villa Le Roque at the end of August with our three older sons & girlfriends, my sister & brother in law with their two children, along with our parents. So this villa had to be 'the one'. On arrival we were taken aback at how fabulous it was, more so than the pictures had shown. Whilst walking up the drive through the huge gates, glancing over to the pool and gardens I had butterflies in my stomach - this villa was amazing!!
Beautiful bedrooms & bathrooms most ensuite with private areas to chill & relax. Often 'lost' people - we never felt on top of each other as there are two kitchens & two lounges. We loved the music system located in the 'pool' room which also played in the outside garden room too if you wanted (just took turns with which genre was played). Some of us even found a little time to enjoy the huge top of the range TV in the main lounge with very comfy sofas, enough for a large group to chill together.
The pool showers and toilet were fabulously handy too, enough sunbeds for everyone, so no having to get up early to put your towels on! Added bonus - all towels and pool towels were provided along with bathrobe. The kitchen had everything you would need including wine cooler, coffee machine & ice making machine. Even with such a beautiful kitchen & a large BBQ outside we only managed to eat one evening BBQ meal at the villa as there were so many good places to eat within walking distance or a short taxi ride into the main town. The lovely beach is literally 450mtrs down the road, there is also a beach bar for snacks, ice cream & drinks.
Mario the villa Manager was very helpful showing us around the villa & arranging our very reasonably priced transfers for both parties arriving and departing at separate times. The booking was very smooth via the owner Sam who was very helpful and answered any questions we had (thanks for the lovely welcome pack)
All in all we can highly recommend this villa - we would love to go back if we're in the Algarve again. Top class, top fixtures and fittings - stunning!!
Many Thanks for taking the time to write your lovely review it would be an absolute pleasure to see you all again.
Just returned from an amazing holiday on the beautiful Algarve in Portugal,half of us travelled from the US and the rest came from the UK none of us had been there before and all of us will go back . We chose a small town called Carvoeiro slightly west of central Algarve and an easy motorway drive from Faro for the UK lot and from Lisbon for the USA gang. we all get together every 2 yrs and all of us are well travelled and live in some beautiful homes so when we meet up on holiday we expect the very very best . Le Roque did not disappoint any of us in any way . This place is absolutely superb when you arrive you may think you are outside some medieval castle , once inside and you head up the drive and look towards the beautiful pool and gardens you start to think it's special but that's nothing to what's inside . every room is top class and every bathroom is world class. We had some fantastic barbecues with the wine and piped music setting a great atmosphere . You will be met by Mario the villa manager who organised our transfers and gave us a tour of Le Roque he also booked us into the wonderful Julio's restaurant next door for our first nights get together meal. There are about 6 great restaurants in walking distance and multitudes in town ( 5min taxi ) . Sam the owner organised a chef for some fantastic in house catering and Joao the Yoga man for our morning exercises . A walk along the clifftops next to the villa is an absolute must if you walk to Carvalho (left out the gate ) and along the cliffs past the light house to centeanes I doubt you will ever have such an amazing stroll quite breathtaking . The local boat trip from centeanes( 5 min walk) to the caves is great ,and a steak at the Wolf is a must . A huge thankyou for sam & john the owners who left us a lovely welcome pack including our first of many beers and wines . We cannot thank Mario enough he really is SUPER MARIO . All in all this was our best get together yet and we already KNOW where our next one will be.
Sooo pleased you all enjoyed yourselves especially the USA gang as Mario tells me the UK won at pool and ping pong but don't worry I'm sure you will get your revenge on your return.
Amazing villa, didn't want to leave
Just back from a most relaxing week here with family. We used transfer taxis (for 6 and 8 passengers) organised by villa manager Mario - clean, air conditioned & well driven for 75 euro each way. On arrival, we were hugely impressed. This villa catered for absolutely everything. The photos are spot on, it's exactly what you get. So much space to either get together or just have a bit of 'me' time. Wifi was great and the lounge / cinema room with Netflix & Sky were welcomed by the younger members of our group. All the bedrooms and bathrooms are lovely, the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. We paid to have the pool heated so it was a lovely temperature & big enough to swim some lengths. We were left with a welcome pack (thank you!) and there is a shop just up the road for daily provisions. The local shop is expensive but we took a taxi (8 euro each way) to the much cheaper supermarket to stock up although we didn't cook very much as there are quite a few restaurants within walking distance. Just beware that when they bring you bread etc. as you're browsing the menu that these are 'covers' and you will be charged per head (from 2 to 5.5 euros each) but can say you don't want them. The beach is a 10 minute walk down the hill, We visited it a coupe of times; hired a brolly and ate lunch at the very reasonable cafe there. If we went to the region again we'd hire a car to be able to get around better - plenty of space at the villa to park a few cars. In all, it really is a top class, private & secure plot with everything you might need for a perfect holiday - highly recommended.
Thank you for your wonderful review, it's so lovely hear people enjoying our villa and having that wonderful experience that we did when we first seen Le Roque and decided to buy it and share it with all you lovely guests , j

Great holiday in a fabulous villa!
Our party of 12 stayed for a week in this luxurious villa. All of the rooms were lovely with large, sumptuous bathrooms. The living spaces were ideal for large numbers, allowing peace and quiet if required. We ate outside everyday making use of the BBQ and the extremely well equipped kitchen. The pool and gardens were ideal giving much needed shade when needed. Good location for the beach and for restaurants within walking distance. We would highly recommend this villa.
Thank you! really glad you made the most of our lovely villa , hope to see you again
