Car: Recommended

Casa Altomar is in Vale de Centianes, a 5 minute walk to the beach and a 20 minute stroll into Carvoeiro, a small picturesque fishing village with a great selection of cafés, bars and restaurants. The centre has a variety of shops, fantastic for hunting down local souvenirs. Ideal for families and couples, with a number of sandy beaches it's easy to lose yourself in the beautiful surroundings, alternatively take a trip to the local water park (5 minute drive) or enjoy 18 holes on some of the best golf courses in Europe (Pestana is only a 10 minute drive away).

Nearest Airport: Faro - 50km.

Nearest Beach - 300m (5 minute walk).

Nearest Supermarket - Intermarche - 5 minute drive, there is a smaller shop ideal for fresh bread/croissants which is a 10 minute walk.

Car recommended but not essential, we have had a lot of guests who have not hired a car.


Manager info

Robinsons Retreats Property Management

About: We have had the pleasure of living in Carvoeiro for a number of years and for us it´s one of the nicest areas of the Algarve. Emma is from York originally and we will leave Mike a mystery as everyone tries to guess the accent but not many get it it would spoil the game if we told you :-) Before moving here 16 years ago Mike has been visiting Carvoeiro since 1985 and eventually made the move after retiring .Emma has been visiting Carvoeiro for 15 years and eventually made the move 7 years ago, not quite old enough to retire and very much enjoying the running of a property management business in the local area.

Why Vale de Centianes, Carvoeiro, Portugal:
Casa Alto Mar is an old style Portuguese villa, the location is ideal for the beach, it was always meant to be a rental property and we have not met anyone that wouldn't want to wake up each morning to beautiful sea views from just outside their bedroom doors. The villa is a nice 20 minute walk to town and just a 5 minute walk to the beach, it´s situated in a quiet cul-de-sac away from any busy roads and it is perfect for a nice peaceful break.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
We believe the unique benefits of this property are the beautiful sea views from the terrace and the short walk down to the beautiful Centianes beach, it is a nice walk into town where you can enjoy everything Carvoeiro offers but back at the villa you can relax and enjoy the peaceful surroundings. The villa is fantastic for a winter rental as the raised terrace is south facing and offers shelter so you can make the most of the sunshine all day, there is plenty of room for a couple of sun loungers on the raised terrace if you really want to relax.
