“Beautiful villa, pools, beach, resort, ideal for families”
Reviewed June 20, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The villa itself was decorated beautifully in traditional Portuguese style. I stayed upstairs in the large double bedroom, ensuite with roof terrace and my daughter, partner and two year old stayed downstairs which had two more bedrooms and bathroom, comfy lounge/dining area and kitchen with washing machine plus patio area and BBQ etc. They have a tv/Sky with a selection of DVDs for all ages which was helpful as my two year old granddaughter would happily watch Shrek as we all got ready to go out. There was also a selection of books to read and an Information Book with good ideas for days out etc, there is also a safe in the upstairs bedroom. The complex contains three beautiful pools (and child pool), pool bar which served light meals, drinks, ice creams etc during the day and meals and entertainment in the evening, there was also a play area, crazy golf, tennis courts, a small shop and a traditional Pizza restaurant. In the evening we would walk the 15 minute beautiful coastal route into Caroveiro the lovely old town which is built around the beach with plenty of restaurants, bars (often with live music) and gift shops etc. We also took a taxi (10 mins away) to Slide and Splash Waterpark and another day a taxi (20 mins away) to the Zoo Marine Aquarium which had dolphin/seal/pirate shows, kiddie rides and water slides plus three pools etc. I would highly recommend this villa/resort, it is very family friendly the owners were so helpful sending a map of the local area and answering any questions etc, If requested they will arrange your taxi transfer to and from the airport, a 'welcome pack' of basic groceries, cots, high chairs and a stairgate. I will definitely book again for next year!

“Perfect chillout holiday location.”
Reviewed October 5, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Beautifully refurbished villa with everything at hand. I agree with all other reviews to date. The surrounding estate, known as Quinta do Paraiso is quiet and pretty with an onsite complex (100 metres from villa) which offers large pool/infant pool with Cafe/bar on site, the staff are very friendly and speak most languages and they serve all day and into the night. The villa is a twenty minute walk to the main beached town which has every type of shop and restaurant you could wish for whilst on holiday, there is an added bonus of a free minibus during set times that runs back and forward to town, we preferred the walk though.
Also within a two minute walk and opposite the complex, is a very family orientated restaurant with inside and outside tables, which serves very good food, pasta, pizza and local seafood dishes (even do take away pizza).
We rented a car from Faro airport and it was a straight forward drive which took about fifty minutes. Taxi transfer is viable at fifty euro each way and there is car hire locally too at around fifty euro a day.
The owners were very helpful and accommodating, answering numerous queries promptly, along the way. Our deposit was returned promptly too on our return to uk.
We will go again !

“Our perfect saty at Casa Patinho”
Reviewed September 30, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We had a wonderful stay at the villa, it has a lovely top veranda with a great view, so we spend many an evening sitting up there with a glass of wine!!

We has use of the pool, along with the restaurants and bar on site which was very good.

The location was great for us as it was so close to all the restaurants, bars, shops and of course the lovely beach.

We would defiantly go back there again.

“Beautiful Villa and great location in the Algarve”
Reviewed September 23, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

* * * * *
Firstly I would like to express our gratitude to the owners who always responded so quickly to any of our questions. This was our first time in this area and we had quite a few questions before going. We were delighted with this beautiful villa - the interior and layout was very Portugese. It was comfortable and we immediately felt at home. We traveled with our two teenage boys who had a bedroom each and a large bathroom downstairs to share. I loved the fact that our bedroom was upstairs with a good size en-
suite and roof terrace with two loungers, table and chairs. A great place to sit and read a book first thing in the morning. Everyone delighted with the space we had especially after a few years of camping. Kitchen had everything you could need including washing machine which is a huge plus and also means you can travel light as there is a rotary line on the room terrace so clothes dry in no time. We had maid in three times a week which was a lovely treat and gave me a real break from being mammy. There was a great selection of DVDs and books so never short of something to do if it got too hot in the afternoon. The owners kindly left a book with all the information you might need while staying there from restaurants, beaches and places to visit so well worth a read. If you have a car it is a great base for exploring the Algarve from trips to the mountains, finding some breathtaking beaches or a day out at one of the many waterparks. There is a cool box in the house so we could bring a nice picnic with us during the day. Quinta da Paraiso is a lovely resort with three pools beside reception and a snack bar to get a nice cool drink. They have a small animation team which run activities every day but mainly aimed at the younger children but I think it depends on the age of the kids staying at the time. They have tennis courts and table tennis table which got well used by our lads. Entertainment every night so something to watch if you are having a drink at the bar. The staff there were very friendly and extremely helpful. Caroveiro is about a 15 min walk and well worth paying a visit to the shops and restaurants/bars at night. It's a small town built around the beach and retains its old world charm. They have music on a stage in front of the beach every night and there is a lovely family atmosphere. We had a such a fantastic holiday we have booked it again for next year and can't wait!

“A true Portuguese home from home!!”
Reviewed April 22, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We stayed at casa patinho from 31 March through to 11 April. We chose a three bed as were due to holiday with another adult who pulled out due to illness at the last moment. However we were the lucky ones....we were able to take advantage of the stunning upstairs suite with its own terrace with far reaching views all the way to the ocean!
The weather on arrival was inclement but thankfully there were some portable radiators and an open fire which soon cosied up the house!
The villa us very well equipped with everything you need and more for a comfortable stay...when travelling with children you need to feel you have everything at hand and this did not disappoint! The only small snag was that the washing machine gave up the ghost at the beginning of the stay and couldn't be replaced until the penultimate day....slightly frustrating as kids go through lots if clothes and we had to ration certain clothing items but it was noones fault and didn't spoil our enjoyment!
The villa managers went beyond the call to help make our stay comfortable, we asked for a bed rail for our young son who has just transferred to sleeping in a bed and a stair gate to keep him from creeping up to the top room which is up a winding staircase with no hand rail, despite not usually providing these they sourced and fitted them for our arrival!

We made use of the BBQ in the private courtyard and dined out a few times at the tratorria which also provides a full takeaway service...again when you've two tired babies this was a godsend! Had we wanted to
cook we could have easily but who does on holiday?!!!

Overall we loved our stay, and look forward to a future stay!!!

“Excellent villa!”
Reviewed September 18, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We spent a highly enjoyable week in this top-quality accommodation. As a party of 5 in total, comprising four adults (age ranges 36 to 66) and one 9 year-old girl, the villa met all our needs and exceeded our expectations. The booking process was straightforward, with excellent communication from the owners. Lots of helpful information was provided, including driving directions which led us unerringly to the door!
The property is bright and spacious, with three good-sized bedrooms and two excellent (new) bathrooms. Note that the upstairs master bedroom is accessed by a spiral staircase which may in some cases present a difficulty to persons with restricted mobility. The villa is comfortable, well-furnished and well-equipped. It truly feels more like a home than a holiday property. Sky TV is installed and Wi-Fi is available (€10 buys 10 hours, top-up at local supermarket). There's a DVD player (and a selection of DVDs and books). There's also a radio/CD with USB connection. Although no air-con is installed, we were never uncomfortably warm, despite outside temperatures up to 33°C.
The design and layout of the villa is such that we could always find a shaded outside spot in which to relax. In the pleasant patio area there's a built-in BBQ and substantial dining table and chairs. The roof terrace (accessed via the upstairs bedroom) is perfect for sun-lovers, with two padded loungers and a parasol. The excellent overall quality of the accommodation (and attitude of the owners) is underlined by the provision of various helpful little extras, including a cool box and some beach toys. The villa was cleaned twice during our one week stay.
The Quinta do Paraiso complex itself is very pleasant and covers a vast (hilly) area, but there is never any sense of being crowded and the villa itself feels quite private. The complex has excellent pools, a pool bar, a mini-market and a couple of restaurants (from personal experience, the Italian one is good). Carvoeiro itself, quite a small town (or large village), is around 15 minutes’ walk away (downhill) and has a good selection of restaurants, shops and bars. There are other restaurants nearer, in Monte Carvoeiro.
My wife and I love the region and in Casa Patinho, we've found the ideal base for future visits.

“wonderful famiily holiday”
Reviewed August 7, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We spent a super holiday at this house. The property exceeded my exceptions. It was very well Appointed, spacious and lots of little extra touches which made it very homely. E.g. beach stuff,DVD,books, bar-b-q. A regular cleaning service is a huge bonus too.
We travelled with 4 children between the ages of 7 and 14. There was something to suit all in Quinta do Pariso. Swimming pools,table tennis,mini golf and the Dive Centre. For the mums, I would recommend a massage, which can be booked at reception.
The pizzeria is handy for takeaway pizza. The mini market is a stone throw awAy from the villa for necessities.
Caraverio is a short, walk to. The town has held on to Portuguese charm and has lots of lovely restaurants and some great beaches on the edge of the town.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this property
