Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: We are a UK based family who have been holidaying in the Algarve since the late 1980's. My parents bought a property near to the Rocha Brava resort around 2000 and following the arrival of Grandchildren we purchased a second property at Colina Verde in central Carvoeiro. We live in Stockport, Cheshire and visit our property two to three times a year. We have two children under the age of 10 and combine our free time between caravanning in the Uk and escaping to the sun when we can! The property is managed by our agent Truus who has been with us for the last seven years.
Why the Owner Chose Carvoeiro: The property is in a fantastic location as all amenities are within a very short walking distance yet being situated at the top of the village means that the position is very peaceful. There are a small number of properties in the complex and the pool is shared by 18 owners, it is rarely crowded, in fact often two or three families only around the pool. The fact that the property is a townhouse as opposed to an apartment is great as you have three levels to the property, with the roof terrace at the top being a secluded spot for sun bathing, or drying washing!, with a sea view.
Carvoeiro is a very family friendly resort and offers a great choice of restaurants / ice cream shops, shops offering the usual beach gear to decent jewellers. The town beach is very clean with boat trips available to the local caves. Within 15 minutes drive there are a number of beaches that can be accessed including Benagil, Marina and Centeanes. Portimao is 20 minutes by car and Lagos abount 30. Silves is a great place to visit, approx 15 minutes inland.
Local attractions are Slide and Splash waterpark (10 minutes), Zoomarine (25 minutes), but in all honesty you don't really need to go anywhere!
There is a local market in Carvoeiro which is open 6 days selling fresh fish, meat and vegetables / fruit. Most guests use the market and then BBQ on the terrace over looking the pool. There are not many better ways to spend an evening, the terrace at the back sees the sun right through to the end of the day.
The Unique Benefits at this House: I would suggest that this quality of accommodation within short walking distance of the village centre is very difficult to find. We have been lucky to have dealt with regular repeat visitors to the property and our most frequent guest are now on their 7th visit!
