5 bedroom Villa, Spa, beer on tap, Heated pool optional, Climbing frame, Bikes
After moving to the Algarve from Portugal in 1999, we decided to design a villa which would tick everyone’s box for a perfect holiday. After 5 years of careful planning we had the plan and the design approved and started the process of building the perfect Holiday Rental Villa. Each bedroom has their own bathroom, safe and plenty of cupboard space. The kitchen, is huge with 2 sets of plates and cutlery, ideal for extended families to enjoy the interaction of preparing a family BBQ/meal.. We moved the outside seating area near to the kitchen for ease. It also has a bar with fully pumped draft beer, if required. The living room, is open plan next to the kitchen that has everything for entertainment. WIFI, Flat screen TV, and surround sound, SKY Channels and ITV, BBC and movies, it has the full package. We also have very large hand built wooden table that can seat 12 comfortably. The patio door open out to the gated terrace overlooking the pool, with sofas, to sit an enjoy the sunset drinks or just watch the children play in the pool. Gates stops little children from entering the garden and pool. In the garden, we have a full size table tennis table, large 8 x 4 meter heated pool (optional), a 6 seater hot tub (optional), which is always fun for everyone. A large patio with 12 deck beds and shaded area. We have installed an outside eating area near to the pool and kitchen. There is a large grassed area for playing ball games and a beautifully manicured landscaped mature garden. In the garden we have also just installed a large climbing frame and slide for the company Little Tykes. Our philosophy is for you the guest to enjoy your holiday, and we just want you have a wonderful memorable time, without hassle, without stress, and most of all those precious times with friends, grandchildren, children and grandparents are priceless.
David purchased this Villa in 2001
Why David chose Salicos
We chose this villa, Casa Valhalla, due to its location and views. We looked along the Algarve and found Carvoeiro offed the most for family values. Having many bars and restaurants so close to the villa, but the secluded tranquil location made this idea. The villa was used by a local builder called George De Lagos, as a show villa to promote his building services, where he ended up building over 100 villa in and around Carvoeiro.
What makes this Villa unique
Location and relaxation is what we want you to enjoy. Having thought of most items that everyone would want, we have added 2 bikes, for the adventurous one to explore the coast. Or just use the bikes for a gentle cycle to the village. There are plenty of taxis in the square in Carvoeiro, so if you wanted a stroll into the village, enjoy the fun in the square with live music and entertainment, and get a taxi home, great end to the evening.

Had an amazing week here with family in October, the heated pool was fab and the kids had no problem getting into it everyday 👍�😊� thank you for a wonderful stay in a wonderful villa x
We have a group of 10 of mixed ages and had a wonderful time. The villa, pool and Jacuzzi are excellent. Go with the beer keg !!
Thank you for your feedback. Much appreciated!!!
Family week away
Really nice villa in quiet area of Carvoeiro yet with easy access to the beach and centre. Lovely pool and Jacuzzi, very sunny and spacious gardens and outdoor space. Good layout inside for our group, with a nice large kitchen. Excellent communications and service before, during and after our stay. Restaurants a plenty, including at least three within a 10 minute walk. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend for a family group like ours.
Thank you for your comments and feedback. We are pleased that you all had a great time. We hope to welcome you back in the future.
An excellent choice.
We found Casa Valhalla to be a clean, comfortable and very well equipped holiday Villa with a beautiful garden and a good size pool, both of which were well maintained. We took advantage of the beer on tap and the pool heating and were very pleased with both. The Villa is within walking distance of several restaurants (approx. 20 mins) and Carvoeiro town. For a three generation family holiday it suited our needs extremely well.
Thank you for your feedback. We are so glad that you all had a great time. We look forward to welcoming you all back in the future.
The lovely Casa Valhalla
We have just arrived back home from a 2 week family holiday to the lovely Casa Valhalla in Carvoeiro. It was an ideal villa for a family of various generations having downstairs as well as upstairs bedrooms and all with their own bathrooms. The lounge area was very comfortable and the tv with all the stations you could think of was great. The pool area has plenty of room and sun loungers and the hot tub is a must. The welcome pack we received on arrival was very much appreciated and the bottle of wine was opened straight away. All in all Casa Valhalla is a very nice property just on the outskirts of Carvoeiro and with taxis being so cheap it was easy to get to the restaurants without worrying about who was going to drive.
Thank you for your kind review and taking care of our property during your stay. Your feedback is much appreciated. We worked hard to get it just right for our guests this year, and with your additional comments we feel that we have achieved this. We look forward to welcoming you back!! Many thanks David
The best holiday home you could imagine
We were not expecting much when heading out to Carvoeiro for a week over Christmas, other than a relaxing break away with family and plenty to eat and drink. We got all of these and more at Casa Valhalla.
We were met at the property by Dave who showed us round and explained how everything worked. Although there were instructions near to everything such as washing machine, dishwasher, air conditioning/heaters etc. to remind us.
We’d ordered the draught Sagres lager as we were having Christmas Dinner there and a nice cold beer on tap was really nice to have – especially round the pool in the sunshine!
The villa had everything we needed for self-catering and we managed to cook a full turkey Christmas dinner using the double ovens and 5 ring hob. The villa is designed to cater easily for 10 people and it was good to see there was lots of crockery, cutlery and even seating and table space for everyone.
The bedrooms were very comfortable and the bathrooms luxurious with the under-floor heating appreciated. There was plenty of bed linen, pillows and blankets for everyone.
The villa had free wifi to keep us all connected – especially with Christmas gifts to set up such as Kindles and iPads. And the Sky TV meant that everyone was kept entertained from the Grandparents to Grandchildren.
The weather was fantastic and we had breakfast/brunch outdoors on the large table on the patio most days. We had a hire car and took some trips out to some beaches but spent much of our time relaxing in the garden during the day. We’d requested the pool be heated for our trip and it was made good use of, along with the hot tub.
We ate out most evenings (it was a holiday after all) and were pleasantly surprised to see how many bars and restaurants were open in Carvoeiro. We’d been out there before for Christmas a few years back, staying at the Tivoli and it had been rather quiet.
We would definitely recommend this villa to others – it certainly is far more reasonably priced and comfortable than accommodating a whole family in a hotel. We would say it was like a home from home – but it has a bit more luxury than we have at home!
Thank you for your review. It helps our guests to see exactly what they will expect from the villa.
Thank you again and look forward to seeing you again. Regards Dave
Carvoeiro is a fishing village halfway along the Algarve coast, about 45 minutes from Faro Airport. Over the last 15 years, grown to be a size able holiday resort. However, it has not lost the intrinsic charm of the place, as the development has been sympathetically done, keeping to low-rise buildings in the traditional Algarvian style. This cosmopolitan resort has a wide selection of restaurants and bars, a few night clubs, boutiques, banks, chemist and local facilities.
Other Activities: Go Karting, Motor racing at the new Autrodromo at Portimao
Golf: Golf Information Golf packages and pre bookings can be arranged at our local courses Pinta, Gramacho, Alto and Salgados golf. The Algarve is one of Europe's premier golf areas. There are currently twenty-five courses in the space of 100 miles of coastline, with more under construction. All Algarve courses are within one and a half hours' drive of Faro International Airport. Over the last few years the Portuguese Open has been hosted variously at Penina, Vila Sol and São Lourenzo, all of which may be included in the list of top European championship courses. Warm playing conditions and immaculately manicured fairways and greens are the norm in the Algarve. We can send you a price list of the courses and availability to coincide with your holiday.
