“Great family villa, great location, just a 20 minute walk to the beach.”
Reviewed 1 week ago for a stay in June 2018

This great villa is located within a 20 minute walk from Carvoeiro town and the beach, with a choice of supermarkets within a 10 minute drive. The villa was very well equipped and immaculately presented. A couple of observations that may be useful if you are thinking of booking this villa are that all of the beds are very hard; most of the pool is 2.1m deep with only a small area of 1.1m; and getting the car off the road into the parking area is a bit tricky. The pool is great but from a personal perspective we would have liked a bit more privacy around the pool area, another 2 feet of screening on the wall would have been appreciated. None of these prevented us having a fabulous holiday at this great villa. Thank you.

“Excellent place to stay ”
Reviewed June 7, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We really enjoyed our stay in Carvoeiro and the villa was excellent. Very clean and well equipped with a proper kitchen and 3 good sized bedrooms with a bathroom for each one.
We had 2 families staying (including 4 children, 7-13yrs) and the pool was enjoyed by all.
It's not a long walk to the centre and the beach but there's various routes to take and plenty to see on the way (highly recommend Cocktail Garden on the way back) but the taxis are reasonable too.
Also well situated for the water park (Slide & Splash; great day out) and only €12-15 in a taxi each way.
Would also recommend Peter from Algarve 365 for the airport transfer as he knows the area well.
And definitely do the boat ride to the caves from Carvoeiro beach.

“Pleasant Villa in a quiet area”
Reviewed August 24, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Our party consisted of 4 adults and 3 children under 6 and the Villa had everything you could ask for amenity wise with the SKY TV (with Kids channels) being a godsend for the extremely Hot afternoons when it was better to keep the small ones inside, although the lack of Air con was the only down side we felt, as the roof fans in the lounge and dining room rattled so much they appeared to be falling off and the stand up fans in each bedroom only served to push the hot air around and opening windows only let the mosquitos in.
The pool was perfect for the small ones, as at any time they were always within reach of an adult, given the shallow end was not the largest or shallowest.
The cot unfortunately was in the upstairs bedroom and is a heavy wooden one, so was not practical for us, as it could not be moved, but Patricia the villa manager very quickly sorted out a travel cot for us, which was perfect.
Maria the cleaner was super and to be honest did more than i believe she was supposed to do and always had a smile and a word for everyone.
As for the walk to town, it is between 20 and 25 mins, dependent on the route taken, but the last part is quite steep whichever you take and a taxi back is a better option (5 to 8 Euro based on taxi size), although to avoid this there is always Monte Carvoeiro with a few bars and restaurants on the top, before the hill for a bite to eat or drink on the way down to town, or back.
Overall the whole party enjoyed our stay, so thanks to all at Casa Branco Grande.
