“FABULOUS PLACE TO STAY IN CARVOEIRO”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2009

We have stayed in these apartments many times and would totally recommend it to anybody. It is suitable for couples or families. The great thing about the place is that it never seems crowded, always plenty of room. We have never found it too noisy and come back from our stay feeling very relaxed. The apartments themselves are so clean and spacious. Top floor has a lovely view of the sea. The apartments are very close to many, many restaurants and bars, in fact the first restaurant is opposite Bellevue, however you never hear any noise from the town. We have been going back to Carvoerio for around 8 years and love it, can't recommend it enough. Siggi and Dieter who run the apartments are always on hand to help you with any questons or queries you might have. Have already booked again for next year. The other great thing is that the apartments are only a 45 min. drive from the airport.

We had an excellent holiday in these apartments. The owners were very friendly and happy to help with anything, although they are not intrusive. The apartment we had (no3) had a lovely sea view and the rooms were large and it was very clean throughout. The kitchen was very well equipped (it had more things than we have at home!). The pool was great and didn't have to fight for a sunbed despite it being August!

The apartments are up the hill from the beach and main town area (10min walk) but was nice to be away from the traffic and noise of the centre. Town is very nice but felt we wanted to go to other places as it was quite small to occupy a whole week.

Would definitely recommend Bellevue to anyone in search of a relaxing holiday!

My girlfriend and I have recently returned from a week in Carvoeiro, Portugal, booked through Thomson/Simply Travel. We stayed in the Bellevue Apartments, on the Rue das Flores.

Firstly the hospitality of the staff is excellent. The 12 apartments that make up Bellevue are managed by a lovely German couple who are so friendly and go out of their way to help you in any way they can. Our bags were carried to out apartment for us even though I was wholy capable they would not hear of it. On arriving at the apartment both my girlfriend and I were delighted with the sheer size and and quality of the aparment. We've both stayed in a range of hotels/villas/apartments over the years but this one (#12) was excellent and certainly far more than we were expecting.

We were even more suprised to find complementary wine, water and essentials such as bread, butter, milk, eggs, cheese, tea, coffe etc; usually something we'd expect to ask for in advance or at least pay a surplus for such a 'Welcome Package'.

The apartments and surrounding areas were exceptionally clean and tidy. The pool was well kept, cleaned daily, and held at a steady 24 degrees while we were there. Due to there being are only 12 units in the Bellevue Apartments there is a feeling of exclusivity and privacy - there is certainly no competition to find a nice spot by the pool and it was always so lovely and quiet.

The apartments themselves are located at the top of the main road on which the majory of bars, restaurants and small shops reside, and was a perfect location to access everything including the beaches in either direction along the coast (5/15 mins walk) Only 5 mins walk is the ever spectaular Algar Seco - a lovely rocky coastline with hidden coves and rock pools, including a quiet snack bar hidden amoungst the rocks.

From right opposite, all the way down to the nearest beach and village square there are a rangle of restaurants serving anything from traditional Portugese fayre to ever-familiar Indian and Chinese cuisine. An absolute must, however, is the fresh fish and sea food dishes. We sampled some excellent freshly caught fish, my particular favourite being Sea Bass caught that morning, which I had at the "Restaurant de Rede" located right opposite the Bellevue Apartments. As a traditional fishing village Carvoeiro restaurants all serve very fresh fish and sea food and it really must be experienced.

The beaches are quaint and all located in beautiful rocky coves. There are 3 within easy walking distance of about 15 minutes although there are more all accesible by car if you choose to hire one.

I would highly recommend the Bellevue Apartments and Carvoeiro. It was a thoroughly relaxing and tranquil experience.

We have just arrived home after a really enjoyable & relaxing stay at your apartments in Carvoeiro.

We found the apartment to be spacious, well fitted and clean. All the staff were extremely polite & helpful but not intrusive. The gardens & pool area were well kept and relaxing.

We have stayed in Carvoeiro many times before and I also lived there between 1992 -1994. We would have no hesitation in returning to stay and would also recommend Bellevue 1 to all our family and friends.

Once again thank you.

Hi these are a small block of apartments owned by a very,very freindly German guy - the best wellcome we have ever had to a holiday apartment - They are opposite the Rede resturant on the way back to the Almansor hotel.
They have a sea veiw as long as you are on the middle or top floor,and it is very quiet and peaceful.
The furniture is ok the beds could have been less firm but the whole apartment was very clean and there is loads of cooking equipment.
Full size TV with 4 english channels
Massive balconys to the better apartments 10M by 3M with a table and chairs for 4 and 2 sunbeds with mats.
The bathroom is big and has a separate shower to the bath.
No aircon but fans and heaters in winter.
Would use again
