Fantastic Villa, would book it again without a second thought.
This villa was amazing. So much space in every room to accommodate our party of 10. The kitchen was huge with more than enough equipment. The bedrooms were very spacious and everyone slept so well due to the electronic blackout shutters throughout. The poolside patio was very big with plenty of sun loungers, a big BBQ and a children's pool warning alarm. We also dined outside every evening with all 10 of us fitting round the large outdoor table. We paid the extra for the heated pool which was amazing, and gave us the opportunity to use the pool late into the evening. We spent most evenings in the games room, where we played darts and bar billiards.
The villa is in a good location, about a 10 minute walk to the town and beach, where you will find plenty of nice bars, restaurants and shops.
I use a wheelchair and was concerned about access before I made the booking. But Jason the owner was very helpful, advising everything about the villa and obtaining door measurements. Unfortunately the wheelchair would not fit in the ground floor shower room, but I was able to use the toilet in the larger ground floor bathroom. As for using the shower we took the portable shower seat outside and I used the poolside shower, it had a good supply of hot water and is located in a convenient corner that gave me some privacy. There were small steps up to the front and side doors of the villa, but they were easy to overcome with the help of one able bodied person tipping me up.
When we arrived at the villa we were met by Gabriel, he was very nice and told us everything we needed to know. He also assured us we could phone him anytime if we had any further questions or problems, but we didn't need to as he briefed us so well on arrival.
I would highly recommend this villa to anyone. It was a great holiday and having this amazing villa was the highlight by a long way.
Our better than home from home!
As a family of 6 adults and an infant the property was perfect. The rooms were all a good size and the air conditioning was perfect! The kitchen was well equipped with everything you could wish for (although we ate out apart from breakfast!). We had the swimming pool heated and it was fun for all of us. The games room was well equipped and the outside furniture was plentiful and of good quality. The villa was quite secluded and peaceful and was a pleasant 20 minutes walk to the village. We all loved our holiday and wanted to stay longer!
Gabriel was very helpful and responded to any queries/requests for help.
Perhaps the only criticism was the lack of mirrors in the bedrooms and possibly the crockery could be replaced at some stage in the near future.
This villa is just superb, it has everything you could possibly need, it's even better and bigger than the pictures!!! Close to town and supermarkets but very peaceful. Air conditioning, electric shutters, wifi, pool, bar , accommodation was all top quality. Jason was a pleasure to deal with and we had no issues at all. Would run back to this villa in a heartbeat!!!!!
Chilled out in fab villa
villa is large and well equipped - bar area is great entertainment. Lots of sun beds in pool area and lovley pool. It is 10 -15 minutes walk into town but bars & restaurants are closer if you don't want to walk to far. Would recommend going to Lidl supermarket great choice and well kept. The Apolonia supermarket was V expensive.
Lovely spacious, well positioned villa
Villa lived up to our expectations. Accommodation was spacious and worked out very well for the 10 of us including 4 small children under 5. Welcome from Gabriel and follow-up from him throughout the holiday was excellent. Pool was fabulous. The walk into town was easy enough for visits to the beach and evenings out and a good work-out pushing buggies back up the hill. Several good restaurants within a couple minutes walk from the villa and a few small shops for bread and milk etc. Car was handy for bigger supermarket shops and the villa had ample secure parking space. Carvoiero is a very pleasant small town.
Absolutely amazing villa in a beautiful part of Portugal.
Our first experience of staying in a villa and it couldn't have been better. Gabriel was there to greet us and was always available to answer any questions we had. We were a family party of 8 adults and 3 young children and the facilities were second to none. The villa is beautifully furnished and very well equipped. The outside area is huge with plenty of room to sit either in the sun or shade. We had the pool heated as we've stayed in Portugal in late May before and found the water too cold for the children. It was perfect this time. It was about a 15 minute walk to the beach, very steep but there was always the option to get a taxi back. Would recommend getting a taxi to Intermarche for bulk shopping. There are plenty of restaurants in Carvoeiro to choose from but we found it was just as lovely to stay in the villa and barbecue.
Finally thanks to Jason for ease of booking and quickly answering any queries we had. We will certainly recommend the villa and hope to return ourselves one day.
