Casa das Flores «AL» is a single storey villa and, we understand, the former 'show house' for this quiet residential development. Set in a third of an acre plot overlooking the first green of the golf course at Vale de Milho; approximately a mile and a half east of the popular former fishing village of Carvoeiro. Tennis courts, shops, a number of restaurants and Centianes beach are all within easy walking-distance of the villa. Riding, sailing, diving, water sports and deep-sea fishing are also available within short distances. The house is fully compliant with the Portuguese LICENSING LAWS for holiday rental properties. Prices INCLUDE POOL HEATING and unlimited, secure WiFi. Please be aware that we have a strict policy of NO SMOKING in the house and anticipate that guests will respect what is our only 'house rule'.
Carvoeiro: Is a delightful former fishing village just a short drive, or twenty-or-so minute walk, from the villa. The town accommodates most holiday needs with its tourist information centre, bars, banks, pharmacy, moped, car and bicycle rental outlets and a huge variety of restaurants. The central square leads directly on to the beach backed by sandstone cliffs so typical of the Algarve. The coast road leads east and west from the square to a number of secluded coves.
What to do?: Boat trips can be taken from the beaches at Carvoeiro and Benagil to less accessible beaches, coves and caves along the coast. Horse riding, Snorkelling, Tennis and water sports are all available nearby. There are also two water parks ('Slide and Splash' is our preference) and ‘Zoomarine’, a marine theme park, all within a short drive. The tranquillity of the mountains, the pine forests of Monchique and the ancient Moorish walled town of Silves, the latter only 15 kilometres away, make pleasant inland excursions. Alternative, but equally enjoyable, excursions can be made to the old port of Portimao and to Lagos.
All the bathrooms were completely refitted in 2007.
Please note that we have a strict policy of NO-SMOKING in the villa.
A car, whilst not strictly necessary, will undoubtedly add to the enjoyment of your holiday.
The villa has a monitored burglar alarm to help improve your safety and security....moreless

Casa das Flores is situated in the quiet residential area of Vale de Milho (valley of corn) overlooking the 1st green of the Vale de Milho golf course, approximately a mile and a half east of the popular former fishing village of Carvoeiro. It is a little over half a mile to the nearest beach, Centeanes, and about the same distance to the closest supermarket at Rocha Brava.
Golf: The Algarve is a golfers paradise and Carvoeiro has more than its fair share of interesting courses. Casa das Flores overlooks the first green of the 9-hole, par-3 Vale de Milho course whilst the famous nearby complex at Penina offers three courses designed by Sir Henry Cotton: the 18 hole Championship, the double 9 Resort and the 9 hole Academy. Other nearby courses include Alto Golf, Vale da Pinta, Gramacho and Morgado (opened in 2003). The Vale de Milho clubhouse, two hundred yards from the villa, offers an especially good English breakfast!
