“Lovely villa, excellent location.”

people found this review helpful

A group of 15 of us stayed here for a week in July. Every stage of this holiday from booking to leaving the villa was quick, professional and relaxed with the owner very happy to help out with anything during the holiday as well.

The villa itself is located a few minutes walk from supermarkets and the beach making it an ideal location. We rarely left the villa though as with the pool and the roof terrace there was not much need to go elsewhere. It has everything needed to cater for large groups, I would definitely recommend it and visit again!

“Ideal for 5 couples, everything we needed”
Reviewed June 19, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

person found this review helpful

We booked the villa for 5 couples for the May half-term week as we had a couple of teachers in our party. Correspondence with the owner was brilliant, all our questions answered before we arrived. We had a transfer booked from the airport and found it without any problem thanks to the directions we were given when booking.
Basically the villa consists of 2 separate parts. The upper level is reached via the front door and consists of 1 en-suite bedroom, lounge, dining area, kitchen, utility room and behind a door there are 2 other bedrooms that share a bathroom. There is access to the downstairs section either by the outside steps or by walking down the drive and in through a side door. That part had 4 bedrooms (1 en-suite) and 2 further bathrooms/shower rooms. Again there is a kitchen, dining area and lounge with access to the pool area using outside steps. The pool area is great with ample sunbeds and outside plastic furniture. There is a BBQ and shower and the area is very private.
Everything we needed was there - dishwasher, washing machine, plenty of fridges for the liquid refreshments, toasters, microwave and loads of plates and utensils. If you're lucky, previous tenants would have left some basics - washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets etc - and we found that the owner had provided water, juice and milk in fridges on both levels. There are outside steps to the roof where there is a clothes line, quite useful. Free wi-fi is provided and there is a TV although it wasn't turned on while we were there.
Its downhill to the beach, restaurants and bars so just a little exercise when returning is required !!

“PERFECT VILLA FOR A FAMILY REUNION”
Reviewed July 20, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

person found this review helpful

We stayed at Villa James for the first two weeks of July with 6 adults and 6 children. Very spacious and well equipped accommodation. Perfect location for restaurants, bars, beach and shops, all within 5 minutes walk.(No need for a car). James and Isabel were always on hand to answer any queries.

Last visited Carvoeiro 27 years ago, and still as delightful as ever-didn't want to come home!. Ideal destination for families.

“Nice villa in great access to town/beach”
Reviewed July 23, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

person found this review helpful

We were a group of 13 who stayed in this villa for a week in early July.

There is good air conditioning on both floors and fans in bedrooms. Plenty of bathrooms. Pool is a good size and clean. Villa itself well equipped and clean. 3 bedrooms on top floor and 4 bedrooms on bottom floor.

TV (with UK stations) on top floor with a Playstation on bottom floor. Wi-Fi available throughout.

Didn't use BBQ.

Biggest plus is location, 200m from Restaurant Hill and Taxi stand. 300m from town square and beach. Nightly entertainment in square. Taxi fares to Slide n Splash and local towns very reasonable. Plenty of reasonably priced restaurants for family meals.

Be aware the street from the square/beach is steep!!

We just got back from a week in this Villa, this is a lovely 7 bedroomed villa with all the facilities you could ever need, the villa itself is very large and easily fitted our group of 12 people comfortably. Split into 2 parts the upstairs has lovely views over the town and even the sea, the bottom half leads down to the large pool area. We all enjoyed our stay and would happily return to this Villa. Met James during our stay and he and Isabella where both very helpful. Many thanks James.
