Two high-quality studio apartments with private entrances and patios are available for rental, which have recently been upgraded. Both share the architecturally designed water garden and large swimming pool. The ponds in the water garden abound with water lilies, enlivened by ornamental fish, frogs and turtles. The special Koi pond fed by a waterfall makes for a soothing and sensational holiday. We also offer you personal attention at all times, if required. Evening meals are available on request at reasonable rates if you should tire of the restaurant scene. Book early to avoid disappointment.

Details of studio apartments: Each of the two apartments has a separate private entrance, and each has their own patio or terrace area. Each apartment is fully furnished and the kitchens are fully equipped with all the necessary appliances, crockery and cutlery. Casa das Primas offers their clients an outdoor secluded, shared, swimming pool with umbrellas and sun beds. A perfect setting to relax and get away from it all.

The property is owned and managed by Charles Every, assisted by his daughter, Vanessa de Beer.

About Vanessa de Beer

My father bought this house in 1969, since then he has watched Carvoeiro grow and change. The original house itself, has also changed and my husband and myself arrived here from South Africa some 15 years ago. I am a Home Economist by profession and still practice my skills in the Algarve. We live on the property with my father who is now 101 years old, the climate certainly seems great for a long life.

Why Vanessa de Beer chose Carvoeiro

The property is very quiet with a lovely greenbelt in front of the garden and sea views from the swimming pool and the Penthouse apartment. The great advantage is its a short walk into the village and there are many restaurants and bars to choose from which can make for a great night out. The beaches in the area are very picturesque and are very easy to access. For the more adventurous, the apartments are within easy travelling distance to the East and to the West Coast along with an easy car ride to the Monchique mountains to the North.

What makes this Apartment unique

Perfect accommodation for two people, who want semi- privacy. Not being in a vast apartment block sharing a swimming pool with a large number of people is a distinct advantage. The swimming pool is shared with the other apartment but it is still quiet and calm. The apartments are self-catering which again means eating either in or out, everything is provided to make meal preparation and eating easy.
