A paradise of a holiday villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a glorious 10 day stay in this fabulous villa. The place was kept spotless by a delightful maid. She was cheerful, helpful and friendly. Luxurious fabrics have been used throughout the villa including the bedrooms. The hall with its chandelier and winding marble stairs puts you in mind of South Fork and Dallas. No detail had been overlooked with a well stocked kitchen with gadgets, beautiful pictures and pottery from Porches, about 5 miles away. We hope to return soon.

Fabulous stay

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous villa with a superb view from the terrace onto the sea. The location is ideal - only a 15min walk from the center of Carvoeiro and a quick walk to the Carvoeiro Club facilities. The villa is perfect for a holiday with friends and/or family thanks to its four bedrooms and spacious layout - our teenagers had plenty of space. It is also very well maintained by the lovely house keeper Celeste. Finally, the pool is a blessing under the hot Portuguese sun!

Wow, just wow!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the beautiful, spacious, comfortable vila with 4 of our children. We had all a lovely own bedroom annex bathroom, which was very nice. On the balcony of the house, you have a great view of the landscaping and the sea. There is a very nice BBQ place and of cours a great swimming pool! The house is located at walking distance to Carvoeiro, but you had to put your walking shoes on to get there....! The environment is very beautiful and there is a lot you can do. For example a boat tour, shopping and dining in very nice restaurants. At one time we even came across Cliff Richard, in a beautiful restaurant, who owns a vineyard in the Algarve!

One more tip, when you are staying at this lovely place don't forget to make some coffee for Celeste, who is a wonderful and very kind house keeper. This goes as wel as for David and Helen, the owners, who were very gracious and helpful.

We are looking forward to come back soon!

Perfect in Every Way!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, spacious, comfortable home with exquisite views conveniently located for touring the Algarve region, walking to fun spots in town or just lounging by the lovely pool. Owners David and Helen were very gracious and helpful. We enjoyed walking to restaurants and also cooking and eating outside on the balcony overlooking the gorgeous landscaping and the sea. You can't do better than this!

Simply beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We had one of the most relaxing and beautiful holidays ever at Casa na Colina and enjoyed ringing in the new year there. The villa is extremely spacious, tastefully decorated, and very comfortable. The garden, the pool area and the various terraces with fabulous views were a real delight. We used the barbecue on 2 nights and ate sitting out with our wine glasses and delicious food. Our 7 year-old daughters forgot about their gadgets and spent endless hours soaking in the winter sun in the garden and sitting by the pool and dipping their feet in it (the weather was just a bit too cold for swimming). Celeste, the housekeeper, was wonderfully kind and friendly. The beach and restaurants were walking distance, and felt refreshing. We would love to go back there for a longer period.

Space, Serenity (and Sunshine)

  • 5 of 5

My first trip to Portugal and the bar has been set high. Casa na Colina is the perfect place for peace, relaxation and proximity to the sea - and for ice-cream! The villa is of a very high standard: clean, uncluttered and lots of space so that you don't have to trip over your fellow holiday-makers. The bedrooms (four of them) all have their own en-suite and are extremely comfortable. All of this is looked after by Celeste, the housekeeper and a real treasure, who made a lazy time even lazier and kept the whole place spick and span.

The all-essential and good-sized pool beckoned almost on an hourly basis (we were very lucky with the weather at this time of year) offering an interlude from reading or dozing in the sunshine.

The villa is 10-15 minute walk from good restaurants and 20 minutes or so from the beach at Carvoeiro (but longer to walk home given the hill, my age and the ice-creams). Further afield there is lots to explore which is what I shall try and do more of next time. That and the other flavours of ice-cream I missed out on this trip.
