For those that know Carvoeiro it is a hidden gem on the Algarve and remains as yet undiscovered and has not been spoiled by large over development, the village is in a lovely setting centred around the square right by Carvoeiro beach which is nestled in a lovely cove where there are many very good cafes & restaurants. Monte Dourado resort enjoys a privileged hill-top position above Carvoeiro beach and within a short walk of the beach and the centre of the village, there are tennis courts on site and a nice 9 hole par 3 golf course (Vale de Milho) just up the road or a more challenging 18 holes each at Pinta & Gramacho 10 minutes away, Carvoeiro is set on a really beautiful stretch of coast with cliff tops mingled with super sandy cove beaches. Slide & Spash water park is 5 minutes away in Lagoa and Zoomarine theme park is within 20 mins.
In summer especially it is impossible to park in the town this is why we think the location of this apartment is fabulous, no need for a taxi.
Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: Hi, we are Tracy & Paul Maxwell from Blundellsands near Liverpool, I (Paul) am the Managing Director of a local oil company and my wife runs the household and caters for our two kids who are still at home (cause they have it so good!). We love it when we can get out to Carvoeiro which is not as often as we would like.
Why the Owner Chose Carvoeiro: It's perfect, right location in a nice quiet spot yet only a couple of hundred metres from all the restaurants, bars and beach (not easy to get that combination). The apartment was built in the early nineties and is a quality build to a high standard, the layout is super with the private ensuite bedroom area and spacious lounge. Balcony is full width and not overlooked, it is near to the pool but not right overlooking it which is what we wanted, ideal for a peaceful drink, and the view is lovely. It ticked all the boxes for me, I knew it would be good for rentals because of this and in the years following been proved right, its been a great investment!
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: The one thing I would say that makes this apartment great for holidaymakers is the location, many apartments claim to be in Carvoeiro which these days covers a wide area and often this can mean in the general vicinity, but when guest arrive they find themselves one or two kilometres out of town, not such of problem except in peak periods when taxis are busy and car parking impossible. Our apartment is right there in the town centre, a five minute walk away from the square by the beach, yet is just far enough away from the main street to be quiet and peaceful at night.
