Carvoeiro apartment description

With spectacular ocean views, this spacious bright & airy apartment is well-appointed in quiet residential area, away from the deafening noise of bars & greasy fumes of restaurants yet just 5 minute drive to centre of Carvoeiro, makes the perfect base from which to discover the shops, markets, bars & cafes, quality restaurants and a vibrant night-life of the village. Apart from the beach side town buzz, scuba diving, snorkeling, golf & walking the routes on the cliff tops are all available nearby. The apartment is located within easy walking distance of the stunning beach of Vale de Centianes, a supermarket, a pub, cafe, cocktail bar and a pizzeria. Other popular sandy beaches of Carvalho, Marinha, Benagil and Albandeira are just minutes by car. The apartment is comfortably furnished and has vast open-plan living/dinning area, separating the two bedrooms, which leads on to a terrace equipped with a bbq & the amazing sea views. Here you truly have all the perfect ingredients for a memorable family holiday getaway by the sea!

Carvoeiro is a popular beach side town continues to be a favourite destination for many holidaymakers.
This picturesque fishermen’s town nestles in a dip between two hills, next to a cove sheltered on either side by low cliffs. In the summer, it is a remarkably vibrant little place, especially as a focal point for wining and dining with dozens of restaurants offering a variety of dishes, from typical Portuguese gastronomy to Italian, Dutch, British, Thai, Chinese and Indian cuisine. The main square facing Carvoeiro beach was recently redeveloped and is now a truly delightful place to take the whole family. The children can play in the sand while the parents can enjoy a glass of Sangria at one of the shaded café esplanades in the square. In the evenings, live music and street entertainers turn the square into a vibrant colourful place. The coastline in this area offers and extremely photogenic mix of cliffs, coves, bays and beaches. It can be enjoyed at any time of the year, including in the winter when the rough seas make a breathtaking view from the cliff tops. Walk up the hill on the eastern side of Carvoeiro beach to find the beautiful Our Lady of Encarnação Church, the remains of a fort and a children’s playground with fantastic views of the ocean. If you keep walking along the avenue that runs parallel to the sea, you will get to Algar Seco, where you will find interestingly eroded rock formation with carved out steps leading you down to the sea line – a must for visitors, especially nature lovers and keen photographers. It is a special place for fishermen, snorkellers and scuba divers. Other unspoilt beaches on the east side of the town are Vale Centianes, Praia do Carvalho, Praia da Marinha, Benagil and Albandeira. Monte Carvoeiro is a quiet, small development high on the west side of the main village where visitors can enjoy a relaxed meal in one of the restaurants in the area. However, just before you get to the top, do stop at the Praia do Paraíso view-point and take in the magnificent ocean views. Praia do Paraíso itself is a pretty little beach with a magical atmosphere. For those who like to keep active and want a day away from the beach, there is a tennis club, a nine-hole (no dress code!) and two 18-hole golf courses, scuba diving and plenty of walking routes on the cliff tops.

AWAY from the poolside or the sand, there are many great ways to spend time in the area that will not only keep the children happy but their parents too! Often the first choice for anyone looking for a full day of entertainment is the Zoomarine theme park in Guia. Located along the EN125, this theme park, which emphasises having fun while learning about marine life, is easy to find by car with plenty of parking. Alternatively there is a dedicated bus service to the park which picks up and drops off at resorts along the coast. The main draw of Zoomarine is the dolphins and not only can you watch one of the daily shows while at the park, there is also the opportunity to swim with them for an extra fee. Apart from the dolphins, which are undoubtedly the starts of the show, there are also sea lions, birds of prey and seal shows, while away from the animals there is a small amusement park and even swimming pools to cool off during the hot summer days.

ANOTHER great way to spend a hot day in the Algarve is at one of the various water parks nearby. This is a chance to scare yourself silly on one of the extreme slides or to have a laugh watching family members as they scream their way down to the bottom! There are three main water parks nearby: Slide & Splash near Lagoa, Aqualand in Alcantarilha and Aqua Show near Quarteira. All offer a variety of slides and attractions with bus services also available to take you for the day. This is a good choice for older children and teens as you do need to be able to swim to a reasonable standard to be able to enjoy most the park. However, these are also great places to be able to not act your age if you are an adult – after all, who said the kids should have all the fun?

FIESA, the biggest international sand art festival can also be found nearby on the road between Algoz & Pêra. Here you will find spectacular giant sand sculptures depicting the Animal Kingdom playing tricks on humans!

Silves, its Moorish influence can be seen everywhere, with the castle affording spectacular views of the surrounding agricultural land.

For a complete contrast to the beach resorts, head inland to find Silves city, most famously remembered as the western capital of the highly civilized Moorish kingdom in southern Iberia. Archaeological digs are constantly taking place in different parts of the city. The best place to see what has been found so far is in the museum, built around a large, fascinating Arab well. But it’s Silves’ magnificent castle that will catch your eye as soon as you arrive in the city. Climb onto the mighty red sand-stone walls to appreciate the commanding position of this fortress. The cathedral should also be visited, especially to see its fine Manueline doorway. Much less known is the small, beautifully decorated church on the corner, almost opposite the Manueline doorway. It is breathtaking. The best way to explore the city is on foot. Meander up past the market to the pretty square with a fountain, overlooked by the Town Hall. It’s a good idea to rest in one of the nearby cafés before summoning the energy for the long haul up though the old city gate to the cathedral and castle. A spectacle that must not be missed in Silves is its Medieval Festival in August. Visitors will be able to travel back in time and experience the tastes, sights and sounds of the 13th century. You can purchase a variety of goods from stalls spread out through the historical city centre as well as eat at the medieval taverns and enjoy live music and dance performances in the streets. The countryside in this area is also beautiful. Ask at the tourist office for walking routes in the area. Along the way, you will no doubt bump into country folk, find cafés lost in time and a curious local dog may accompany you on your route for a while!!
MOST towns & resorts nearby have lots going on after the sun goes down, with street entertainers, handicraft sellers, live music and market stalls lining the streets and the cool of the evening is the best time to explore this in a very family friendly environment.

                                      Carvoeiro is a popular beach side town continues to be a favourite destination for many holidaymakers.

                                      This picturesque fishermen’s town nestles in a dip between two hills, next to a cove sheltered on either side by low cliffs. In the summer, it is a remarkably vibrant little place, especially as a focal point for wining and dining with dozens of restaurants offering a variety of dishes, from typical Portuguese gastronomy to Italian, Dutch, British, Thai, Chinese and Indian cuisine. The main square facing Carvoeiro beach was recently redeveloped and is now a truly delightful place to take the whole family. The children can play in the sand while the parents can enjoy a glass of Sangria at one of the shaded café esplanades in the square. In the evenings, live music and street entertainers turn the square into a vibrant colourful place. The coastline in this area offers and extremely photogenic mix of cliffs, coves, bays and beaches.
