This very spacious villa has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms on the ground floor and an additional shower room by the pool.The large lounge and kitchen are situated upstairs and have a good balcony with patio furniture for enjoying a sunshine breakfast or quiet evening drinks whilst the bbq and outside kitchen are close to the pool and large terraces for relaxing poolside lunches.There are both covered and sun terraces so the olive skinned can tan and the fair skinned can find a spot in the shade. The generous 10 metre pool will keep up your exercise! The television has cable channels with several English programmes and there is wi fi internet for those who have to "keep in touch" - your Iphone should connect to this without the need for expensive "roaming internet access". This is a family home and is equipped with many extras not normally found in a "holiday let". A favourite thing is to relax on the seating under the pepper tree in the garden. The villa is ideal for couples or families and we welcome children over 6. Do please contact the owner if you need any further information.

About Christine Reynolds
The owners are a semi retired couple who live in Pembrokeshire and enjoy many winter months in Carvoeiro. We have many friends in Pembroke, especially since running a small restaurant before retirement. Maurice was born and bred here in what is a small and friendly community. Christine also ran a villa rental company specialising in Carvoeiro for fifteen years and many of her owners and contacts in Carvoeiro have become good friends too. So, of course, we feel equally at home in either location. We both love walking the coast paths, eating out and exploring generally. We love "outdoor living" when possible and our two homes give us plenty of that. We are so, so lucky to be able to share our time in these lovely surroundings.
Christine Reynolds purchased this Villa in 2001
Why Christine Reynolds chose Mato Serrão
We walked in and I just had to have this villa. It was love at first sight. It is so light and airy and the upstairs terrace is a real bonus. We have our breakfast outside listening to the birds and planning our day. The garden - I just love walking around looking at the plants and butterflies and seeing if I can spy a lizard hiding in the rocks. Things have changed a little in the garden since we bought the villa.... our fruit trees are fruiting now and we have built paths and rockeries. What hasn't changed is that we love our villa as much as ever.
What makes this Villa unique
We love our garden and have added more fruit trees over the years. We have fig trees, plum, pear, apricot, peach, nectarine, nesperas, and a young apple tree and young mango. Avocado trees need to grow a little bit.

Lovely quiet location, although local shops & resturants in close proximity.
Great villa with all facilities. Literally booked the day prior to travel and despite last minute the owner & housekeeper organisation and communications were 1st class. Lovely pool with shaded areas as required. Outdoor facilities included a useful additional kitchen area, shower room & toilet. Spacious, with three large bedrooms, two bathrooms and comfortable living area. A nice restful break, would recommend. Thank you.
Thank you. We are so pleased to hear that our guests enjoy the villa as much as we do and we hope you will return.
Perfect villa for a relaxing holiday
Lovely villa! Clean, spacious, comfortable and well-equipped. Peaceful location, beautiful grounds and larger than average pool on a terrace which gets sun all day. Fairly easy walk to nearest shop and bars/restaurants of Monte Carvoeiro (great pizza at Mamma Mia's!) and down into Carvoeiro itself. Taxi back only 5 euros. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, would highly recommend.
Fantastic villa with superb pool and beaut outside and inside spaces
We had a great time, and the coastline is stunning 😎� Don't miss the courtyard of bars and restaurants near the villa, and the excellent brekkie at Tiffanys complete with a pint of Guinness for €3.50 😋�🍺�Villa well looked after by the friendly Marilde and staff. Well Done all!!

Highly recommended villa
Beautiful villa, great pool, well furnished for 6 people. The lovely housekeeper looks after everything so well and speaks excellent English. Good organisation and information from the owners prior to arrival. Wood burning stove if the weather is colder than you hoped, as in my case!
A Relaxing Week In The Sun
Myself and four other ladies, of a certain age, very much enjoyed our stay in this homely villa. There was plenty of everything, from pots and pans to chairs, cups saucers etc ........ the lounge area was very comfy, the kitchen was fine with plenty utencils. The only item I would suggest to the owner to upgrade is the coffee machine, it was rather small for a six person villa, but we managed ok. The pool was excellent, a great size and we were in it every day! We used the bbq and enjoyed some very nice fish bought in Intermarche supermarket. Overall we enjoyed our trip to Carvoeiro and would recommend this villa. Although there was no aircon the breezes which circulated the villa was a relief.
Thank you ladies, and we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. Yes, a new coffee maker is on our winter shopping list! We do hope you decide to return some time in the future
The property is part of the well known Carvoeiro Club and Carvoeiro Clube Tennis and fitness centre is around 800 metres from the villa.
The sheltered sandy beach off the square in Carvoeiro and the Paraiso (Paradise) beach (sand and rocks) are both within walking distance. Do get out and about to see the many sandy beaches all within a short drive from the villa - check out out much used "Beach book" for the lesser known and quiet beaches. The information center within the square can also tell you "what's on" and "where to go" and usually has free magazines available with a local map and informaton. Our favourite beach is Praia do Marinha beach with its lovely walks along the cliffs and steps down to very quiet little bays. We also like to visit Praia Canarios on the way to Ferragudo, where the waves come up to the restaurant overlooking the beach. Not cheap this one, but lovely for a special evening out just for the view. There are numerous lovely walks along the clifftops within easy reach - either walking or by car and park up and now a safe boardwalk has been created overlooking the Algar Seco rock formations, a lovely stroll after your evening meal to watch the sun go down.
Most people fly into Faro airport which is around 45 minutes by car from Carvoeiro. Taxis and shuttle services are also available. You can also fly into Lisbon and drive down to Algarve -a bit more than two hours drive. Car hire is recommended to take advantage of seeing a little of this lovely area. A trip to the Monchique is a must - the views are stunning and the distance little more than half an hour by car. Take a couple of empty bottles and collect spring water from the many "fontes" along the way. If you don't want to drive then taxis are very reasonable and reliable.
Carvoeiro is around 800 metres from the villa. Nearest snack bar/restaurant is just 5 minutes away - Escondidinho has now been very nicely modernised and always busy, so best to book. The food is simple but always plenty of it and reasonably priced. Nearest shop 10 minutes. Silves historic town a 10 minute drive. Portimao for shopping - 15 minutes drive. Shopping centre "Algarve Shopping" 20 minutes.
There are several banks in Carvoeiro all with atm machines and there is a post office and several mini markets. The larger Pinga Doce supermarket is on the outskirts of Lagoa (3km) Intermarche is on the Lagoa road (2km) and we now have a small Aldi too. There is a Slide and Splash park on route to Armacao de Pera - about 10 minutes by car.
