The villa was very nice. Well furnished and clean. The kitchen had all the necessary equipment which made cooking really easy.
The location is about 7 mins by taxi to Cavoiero town centre where the beach and all the restaurants/bars are. There are mini markets and local shops as well. It's very easy to call an Uber and it costs roughly 6-8 euros into town.
It was also close to Slide & Splash, the big waterpark which was great for the kids.
The pool and surrounding areas were clean and we had a blast in the pool daily.
The villa had four bedrooms which were all cleaned however if I had to pick out one negative it's that the master bedroom looked a bit beat down. I could do with a little furniture; perhaps a tv, dresser or chair to make it look more like a master room. The walls and ceiling in the master room definitely require some fresh paint in my opinion (especially the ceiling). Other than that it was a great place to holiday and I would book again.
Peaceful location, great property - would recommend.
We really enjoyed our five nights at this property, and on the whole the villa was excellent and very clean.
The rooms were all good sizes, with en suites in each room, as well as one communal W/C (most with bath/shower and toilet/bidet). Aside from the master bedroom, shower heads were handheld only, so a shower riser in each room would have been appreciated.
The property was very secure with electric window shutters and gates, although even though there was an alarm system installed, no instructions on how to use it were given, so it was of no use.
The pool was great, very good size and very clean, with outside shower for use too.
Garden peaceful and secluded, we could have spent the whole trip relaxing there, especially with the bbq grill as well.
Several issues were present aside from the alarm system, such as the spa shower in master bedroom not functioning fully, and the dishwasher not actually cleaning dishes properly. Also, the toaster tripped the electrical circuit everytime we tried to use it, but thankfully we could use the grill instead.
A full welcome pack of instructions on how to operate the security system, electric shutters etc would have been good however, as we had to figure a lot out ourselves, and although a maid service is listed, the maid only turned up as we were checking out of the property.
Location was far enough from the town centre to be secluded, but only a 5 minute drive for groceries and 10 minutes to Carvoeiro town, so had very good accessibility. Many of the local beaches were also less than 10 minutes away.
Overall this was a great property for our group of 6 adult friends and was in a great location. Although some things could be improved upon, it was still a comfortable and functional property, which we would happily return to.
Stunning villa, quiet location for a relaxing holiday
A large, cool and beautiful villa - perfect for a family group and enough room for adults and teenagers to have their own space. This villa turned out to be bigger than we expected from the photos, including a dressing room for each bedroom, and we loved the tiling and spacious feel of the whole place. Nice touches included beach towels being provided, ample tables and chairs around the pool area, a huge fridge and freezer, and air conditioning in every room - we needed it! The barbecue was excellent and the kitchen well equipped.
The villa is located in a quiet, safe, area about 5 minutes drive from the supermarket and 10 minutes from the bustle of Carvoiero - perfect for us! The only criticism we would have is it only had 1 shower in the master suite upstairs, and it was in a rather small enclosed unit, the mattress on the upstairs bed was very hard, and there were one or two items in the kitchen needing replaced, such as the the chopping boards (we bought our own from the very well stocked supermarket!).
Overall, we loved this villa, its location and it's outdoor space and we would happily rent it again. Highly recommend it!
The area offers several excellent beaches within a short drive
Faro is the nearest airport and is a 45 minute drive. Car is recommended
Carvoeiro is less than a five minute drive from the villa.
There is a supermarket close by and Carvoeiro offers an excellent choice of restaurants and bars
