Vanessa is an amazing cook (and my 4 year old son has insisted I put, "she makes lots and lots of lovely food" - and together with Terry and Charles make this place so special.
We will certainly be back!
Nothing is too much trouble for Vanessa. We will definitely be returning on our next visit to Carvoeiro.
The studio apartment was ideal for myself and my husband. The kitchen was well resourced and ideal for cooking meals. The studio was clean and comfortable. The outdoor private, quiet courtyard was cool and a lovely place to eat and sit. The gardens and pool area was lovely.
Vanessa was very helpful and friendly. Terry her husband was friendly and had a great sense of humour. We enjoyed our meal created by Vanessa, she does outside catering, great value and tasty.
The location is great for a 10 minute stroll into the centre of Carvoeiro. There are plenty of places to eat and partake of a drink.
