Villa in Carvoeiro, Western Algarve, Portugal - 5 - 10 Minute Drive To Golf, Local Shopping And Restaurants
About Elizabeth Ross
We are a semi retired couple who hope to make Portugal our permanent home in the future. Our villa is a home and we have included many additional features that you will not find in a commercial rental property. We aim to be flexible with dates arrival times any special requirements etc as we know how important this can be when you are making your holiday decisions.
Why Elizabeth Ross chose Carvoeiro
We decided on Carvoeiro because it still has that feel of a small village and has an established permanent population . As golfers we are spoilt for choice , as a fisherman I can walk to a local beach where I have on the odd rare occasion caught dinner. As keen walkers there are miles of clifftop and beach walks in the area. Sometimes the only sounds we hear the local birdlife and the neighbours chickens .

Heated pool, enclosed private garden

Perfect stay with family
Villa exceeded our expectations, pool very big, could be warmer for our tastes especially with a small baby but definitely been in cooler! Plenty of outdoor seating areas, we had some trouble with umbrellas blowing off in the wind but we were able to always find shade for the little one but plenty of sunny spots for sun lovers. Villa mostly clean and tidy, took one star off as we spotted ants the first day we were there. Neighbourhood felt nice and safe, felt you weren't alone but at the same time you had total privacy. We used ubers to get around along with a hire car as not much within walking distance but we took total advantage of the amazing villa and stayed in most days! Such a relaxing time for new parents, totally needed! Thank you for having us ☺
We all had a great time at Terry and Liz’s villa, it had everything you could need and was in a good location, Carvoeiro is a lovely place to stay with a great choice of places to eat. The pool was very clean and there was plenty of outdoor seating, air conditioning was a god send as it was very hot! We would recommend this villa to families etc, good idea to have a car if you want to explore further afield but taxis are good and only about 6 euros down into town. Thank you for a lovely stay!
This villa is Heaven in Portugal
We have just returned from a fabulous family holiday. The villa was perfect in every respect for our family of 7. The reality was so much better than the photos. The outside area was wonderful: very large, well maintained pool (which was cleaned twice during the week), the patio with 6 sun loungers which was in sun for the WHOLE day and evening, a lovely outside dining area with large table and evening sun, and a number of comfy seating areas (both in the sun and in the shade). The gardens were very well kept and so peaceful. The villa was huge, extremely clean and had everything we could want. The villa was located in a quiet residential area, it took us about 25 minutes to walk into town (the walk was not particularly pleasant in the heat of the day, especially the walk back as there is a hill). However, this did not put us off and we walked into town a number of evenings. But I must say we enjoyed the evenings we spent dining in the Villa best. We were extremely pleased with everything and had a wonderful holiday and would love to visit again. Thank you Terry and Liz for letting us stay in your fabulous villa (say 'hello' to Gengie for us).
Excellent property. So many different sitting and eating areas. Sun and shade all day for everyone to make their own choice. Brilliant!
