“Beautiful family villa.”
Reviewed July 10, 2018 for a stay in June 2018

The villa was over and above our expectations .Neat clean and tidy,well built ,well appointed ,spacious, and quality fixtures and fittings throughout. We were 8 adults,2 toddlers and 2 babies. Great pool, two outside seating / eating areas and a purpose built BBQ. Secure and not overlooked.The villa is a 5 minute walk to a good choice of restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets. There are 2 well stocked supermarkets in the village and bigger supermarkets if necessary a 10 minute car journey away.Helen, the villa manager, was very friendly , professional and responsive to any queries we had. The only negative we had was a lack of hooks in the bathrooms a minor point that did not spoil our two week stay in this beautiful family villa.

“Wow, Wow, Wow.”
Reviewed April 16, 2018 for a stay in April 2018

Now we know why Villa Carlivo has so many excellent reviews, a private secure villa, great family holiday was had with grandparents, children and grandchildren. Big thank you to Pedro and his colleagues for the taxi service during our stay, taking us to the villa from the airport assisting with our luggage, introducing us to the delicious oranges and giving us a bit of history lesson on route, first class service.
The villa was spacious and well equipped, all bedrooms were spacious with there own ensuites. The villa was private and not overlooked, the children had plenty of playing room outside and the pool upon request was heated, the children, two 7 year olds and one 5 went in the pool as soon as we arrived and every day went swimming even when we had the one rainy day. Fantastic BBQ, took a trip to Aldi for supplies.
The beautiful sandy beach is not far to walk, we only paid a visit to the beach once, the pool was plenty of entertainment for the children.
Went to Zoomarine for the day, great place to visit with children, there were dolphin, sealions, parrot and bird shows, plus a pirate show, rides and water park.
There are local shops, restaurants and a pharmacy all within easy walking distance from the villa.
Read the review given from guests from Nottinghamshire who stayed October 2017 their review is an excellent accurate review of the villa and surrounding amenities.
Thank you for a relaxing stress free holiday.

Thank you so much for leaving such lovely comments and detailed information about Villa Carlivo and the local area. It's great to know that you all enjoyed your stay and found the villa comfortable and spacious. It is a great villa and it's true that the pool heating really is beneficial, particularly for young children - it really does help to increase the water temperature.

We’re glad that you enjoyed your holiday and really hope to be able to welcome you again sometime in the near future. It was a pleasure to have you and your family staying. Thanks again!

“Fantastic holiday in a luxurious villa”
Reviewed September 10, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Villa Carlivo is quietly located on the outskirts of town yet only a 15 minute stroll in either direction to local shops, supermarkets, restaurants and bars, and a further 5-10 minutes on to a beautiful sandy beach. The villa itself is very spacious and well laid out, with plenty of seating and entertaining areas both inside and out. The 5 bedrooms and luxuriously appointed 5 bathrooms- 4 en-suite, and the well equipped kitchen were very comfortable for our party of 9, with the added bonus of air conditioning in every room. Outside is the fabulous swimming pool, shower, 10 sun loungers and Bar-B-Q with sink.

We opted for the airport transfers in the 8 seater minibus plus a limousine that was sent to cater for all 9 of us -all at the same price, which we found both convenient and reasonably priced, and the greeting from Helen the Villa manager was very welcoming, informative and friendly, and was available to us throughout our stay.

All in all we had a wonderfully relaxing holiday in a very nice villa, and we would have no reservations in re-booking or recommending Villa Carlivo to others.

“Stunning Villa”
Reviewed May 19, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

people found this review helpful

WE were lucky to book this amazing villa in early season at a great price. First time we had been able for all family - 6 adults and 4 children aged from 16 months - 8 to go on holiday together. Villa had 5 bedrooms with 5 bathrooms - 4 ensuite. It was extremely well kitted out and children made great use of the heated pool. e paid extra for this but essential in April as the weather can be cool. I actual fact we had fantastic weather. Its within a 10 minute walk of the centre with restaurants and supermarkets. We did not hire a car which you would need if you wanted to explore further. Our rep was easily contacted and really helpful.

“Fantastic Luxury Villa + First-class Service”
Reviewed September 22, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We stayed in Villa Carlivo, managed by Villas Duma mid September.

The villa itself was utterly luxurious. Spacious bedrooms, air conditioning, plenty of bathrooms and squeaky clean on our arrival. The finishings throughout the property give it its luxury appeal with lots of indoor space to relax and get away from the heat of the day for a while.

Outside is where we spent the majority of our time though, with a fantastic and well sized pool area, separate barbecue and dining areas and lounge chairs / sunloungers aplenty. The villa has a great private feel as around the pool, there are no other villas/properties that back onto it, giving you complete privacy and comfort.

The villa has a great location - only a 15 minute walk to Falesia beach, a must see with beautiful views down the cliffs over the beach and into the sea. The local area has everything you'd need, a few little supermarkets and restaurants and bars for the evening.

The service we received from Villas Duma throughout was superb as well, fast response in all communication and they couldn't have been more helpful throughout the duration of our stay, thank you to everyone who helped make our holiday so fantastic!

We hope to return in the future and enjoy another fantastic week in the sunny Algarve!

Merci beaucoup pour ces gentils mots. Nous sommes ravis de savoir que vous avez apprécié votre séjour. C'est vrai au printemps que la fleur d'oranger donne une belle odeur. Le chauffage de la piscine est un super avantage. Merci encore et nous espérons vous revoir un jour.
