We’ve just come back from a lovely holiday in Carvoeiro and stayed at this apartment.
The apartment is in a great location, only 5 minutes walk to the beach with lots of shops and restaurants close by.
The apartment is very comfortable and really well equipped - it has spacious rooms and a lovely big balcony. If you hire a car, you also have use of the apartment block carpark which was a great help.
The owner Jill, was extremely helpful and responds very quickly to any queries or questions you have.
Thank you Jill, we had a great holiday!
We had a great week in this apartment. Close to the action but just far enough away to be quiet at night. Too many good restaurants to mention them all... here are a few, El and Ella, Mar d Fora, Jans, Taste. Could go on. Cliff top walk spectacular. Nice stop offs on way for drinks or lunch. Sky bar at Tivoli hotel reccomended for view/sunset but service a bit slow.(4euro taxi from square) Apartment well equipped to high standard, comfortable beds good air con. We will be back. Home from home just a bit more sunshine! Thank you Jill for easy booking and great info!
We booked this apartment for a 2 week stay in August, encouraged by the reviews and description. Jill was extremely helpful during the booking process which was all smooth.
Upon arrival, we were very impressed, the apartment does look exactly like the photos, and was clean and tidy, and nicely furnished. There really is everything you could need, from recommendations, wifi, dishwasher and washing machine, to cool bags and cool blocks, a sewing kit, a bucket, and multifarious kitchen bits, Oil, vinegar, tea, coffee, salt, sugar, spices, the list goes on. It has clearly been thoughtfully provisioned!
The rooms are spacious, and the aircon most welcome on return from a hot day out. The window shutters did great job of keeping out heat and light, and there was little sound from outside in the evenings unlike the centre of town.
It was a great location for getting to a wide range of eating places without needing to climb too many hills, and easy to get out of town in the hire car to supermarkets, waterparks and beaches.
Nearby eateries to recommend particularly ( as we forgot to write in the book!);
O Rafiol (especially for Sunday lunch, portuguese style and Friday Steak night),
Taste, (good any night but especially for Saturday night Steak 15EU, but book ahead!)
And an outlier which was Casa Palmeiras, up the steep hill near Monte Dourado resort behind the apartments- simple food but very tasty, especially the Seafood rice.
There is a highly recommended Patisserie, Fabrica Velha, a few minutes walk way, on the "in road" just up the stairs across the road from the entrance, and turn right up the hill. The pastries and custard tarts are delicious.
Having a parking space was even more of a bonus than we had appreciated on booking as the on street parking is limited and always full- but do note the parking space is a touch snug if you are considering a large hire car and there is an issue with locals parking in front of the in and out garage doors for short periods whilst eating at the kebab shop!
All in all, a great holiday, made better by a fantastic base.
This is such a lovely apartment. Wonderfully spacious and airy, it comfortably accommodates five people, with good sized bedrooms and bathrooms, a nice large lounge/diner area (all rooms air-conditioned) and a long balcony that's perfect for al fresco dining or an afternoon sunbathe.
The kitchen is also ideal for self-catering, with oven, four-ring gas hob etc, as well as a substantial fridge-freezer.
The location is ideal, too - just a short walk from Carvoeiro's beautiful beach, square, bars, restaurants and shops and yet still surprisingly peaceful. It even has its own dedicated underground parking space - a real boon, as it not only avoids any on-street parking costs but also keeps your car reassuringly secure (not to mention cool!)
All in all, this is the perfect apartment for the perfect holiday. We can't wait to go back.
Stayed here for a week with my husband and cousin. We loved it! Great location near the beach and lots of useful extras like beach chairs/brollies. Very roomy with a massive balcony. Loved the jacuzzi bath. We would book again!
