Fabulous family holiday in large villa
The villa is very spacious with lots of areas to spend time and relax. There is everything you need and everything is well maintained and spotlessly clean. The pool is absolutely supberb and was maintained at least twice within the week we were there. The villas location is so handy for the resorts faculties including the main pool and reception and the mini market and other restaurants. Carvoeiro is just a short ten minute walk with amazing views en route. Kids and grown ups all loved it and look forward to returning again.
Hi Jo, thanks for your lovely review. Glad you all had a great holiday in Carveorio & enjoyed our villa. Would love to welcome you back in the future. Dawn x
We loved our stay, the villa had everything that we needed and more. We were blown away by the pool area and there was so much space for everyone to spread out and so many different areas both in the sun and shade where you could get peace if they wanted it. The cleanliness and service was first class and Dawn, Thomas and Kevin could not have been more helpful if we had any questions. We were also surprised at the number of times that housekeeping popped in to freshen up the rooms and our towels. The town is just a short stroll away with a good variety fabulous eating places but we also visited the 2 local pizzeria's which were just as good as the ones in the main town. One night we had take aways and a midnight pool party which was great fun.
The beaches that we visited were quirky, small and had little if any food and refreshments so remember to take your picnic with you, one was only accessible via a cave/tunnel under the main road!
We did not have a hire car, relying on the local taxi's or walking everywhere.
This villa is ideal for families, couples and groups and our group would all thoroughly recommend a stay here and are hoping to visit again another time
Hi Heather, thanks so much for the lovely review. Really pleased you had a fantastic holiday in our villa. We would love to have you visit again in the future. Dawn
Stunning villa in a beautiful setting
Beautiful, well equipped holiday home.Very well maintained by maid, pool man and gardener throughout our stay.Excellent amount of crockery and cutlery.Plenty of space for everyone to relax and spread out.Access to the resort nearby a bonus.Easy access to restaurants also.Good wifi and air con.
Spectacular pool and lighting.Superb Villa.
We are so please you enjoyed your stay in Carvoiero at our villa and would be more than happy to see you again in the future.
Spacious clean villa with plenty of outdoor space.
A lovely villa sitting just above the village in a nice quiet area. Plenty of outdoor space, beautiful pool and gardens with Jacuzzi and roof terrace. We enjoyed everything about the place, the cool bedrooms downstairs on the hot nights. I honestly can't say we had any complaints about the villa. We had use of the resort pool directly opposite and ate lunch there on a couple of occasions and had a few drinks there in the evening. At night a short walk into town for a meal and a taxi back after which was around five euro. Dawn provided all we needed to know via email, villa was easily located by our taxi driver when we first arrived from airport, from the details given by Dawn and to be honest it was perfect. I love CVO and look forward to returning hopefully next year...if not sooner. Sláinte!
Thank you so much for the kind review, we are so please to hear you enjoyed your stay in CVO❤️
Amazing property !!!
We had a fantastic holiday. The villa had everything we needed. The pool was lovely - although a little cold!! We asked Kevin if the pool could be heated and this was sorted almost immediately and made a great difference!! Very quiet at night which made it perfect to sit out on the terrace and relax with a bottle of wine.
Perfect location - only a 20 minute walk down to the town which has some great restaurants and bars.
So happy you enjoyed your stay in CVO and look forward to welcoming you back again in the future.
A few things we didn't know about which was disappointing
We stayed at Villa Maria for 13 nights in early July 2017.
I lived in the Algarve as a child and knew Carvoeiro fairly well. The location of the villa is a little misleading and not what I had expected. After booking I was told by the owner it was near to the Quinta do Paraiso reception. The villa is opposite the reception on a through road for the development. There are lorries, buses, vans, and cars up and down the road all day and into the evening. Work trucks regularly parked outside the villa with workmen shouting to one another and throwing things into the back of lorries etc. There is also a speed bump outside the villa which adds to the crashing and banging. Due to the proximity of the reception we were regularly entertained by the distant music and loud speaker system used by the resort for their evening events. At the back of the property is a mini golf course with unrestricted access, actually, there is also a playground, and this is all behind the restaurant, so kids use the area as a play area in the evening until it is dark. This is not a quiet and tranquil location. Walking into Carvoeiro with young children from this location is a challenge due to the distance and the lack of suitable pavements in places coupled with the busy nature of the road.
Upon arrival it became clear that the house had not been updated for a long time. The appliances were old, the furniture, fixtures and fittings were also old. Outside around the swimming pool 2 of the sunbeds were broken, 3 of the water drain covers on the patio were broken (a serious hazard for small feet to get trapped), the pool and jacuzzi jets were broken, the parasol bases were held together with gaffa tape. The retractable orning above the seating area was partially broken and squeaked/rattled with any breeze so we didn't use it, too annoying. We didnt use the AC in the bedrooms as the unit vents were filthy. The pool itself was usually too cold to stay in for long periods.
The first two mornings and once the 2nd week we were woken up around 8am by gardeners at the villa who stayed for 2-3 hours doing maintenance. They left sprinkers running on each occassion that made getting in and out of the villa a challenge without getting soaked. The water pressure was also compromised during all this.
The maid did a great job as did the property manager Kevin. We had a great holiday despite the overall quality and location of the property.
