We just returned from a week at Casa Pembe in July. I had been to Carvoeiro before, so knew that it was a beautiful town, but it was my first time at Casa Pembe.
The Villa is located in Sesmarias, which is about a 5 min drive from the center of town, or a 6 euro taxi if you want to have a couple of drinks with dinner. Sesmarias itself has a couple of cute cafe/restaurants, and a mini supermarket, all of which are quite cheap and are only a 2 min walk from the villa.
There are plenty of beaches all a 5-10 min drive away - we went to a different one every day.
The Villa has everything you need for a fantastic week away, is very clean and has all the bells and whistles like a full kitchen, huge outdoor terrace and a pool.
Thanks Mike for a painless booking process and a wonderful holiday! more
