“nice location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2009

Nice location just outside Carvoeiro but only about a 20 min walk down hill thro' a nice residential area. On the way back is up hill but still not too bad.
We stayed in apt 11 on ground floor which had 2 beds, one ensuite, one family bathroom an full kitchen including dishwasher/gas oven/wash machine/microwave/fridge freezer. The living room was large and all in all ideal. I would say tho' the picture in the Style brochure was of an apt that had been refurbished!
The 'complex' is part holiday part privately owned apts and with a lot of repeat visitors. Plenty of choice of restaurants locally and in the town. We hired a car for the two weeks and explored the many beaches along the Algarve and didn't really spend too much time around the pool but this was clean and ideal for families with children. The mini market on site was more accurately a micro mkt but did fresh bread in the morning.
All in all a great place for a two week holiday.

Villa nova apartments and villas are ideal for a family holiday situated just yards off the strip but you wouldnt know it was there massive pool and seperate childrens even diving boards
Lots of places to eat and drink we found the bar Portofino great karaoke

walk to the beach a bit tiring but we are getting on a bit defintley would go back again

We have stayed at Villa Nova for many years, the apartments are beautiful, clean and spacious. The complex is small but Isobel and Annibal, the managers, are very friendly and they welcome us like family every year. The restaurant is exceptional with fresh home made food. I recommend the Lemon Meringue!

Stayed July 2007

The Vila Nova Apartments in Carvoeiro are very spacious and clean. The pool and excellent restaurant are run by a young couple who also manage the apartments. We met people who had returned there over 10 times! We booked the Casa Vida apartment directly with the owner. Cannot recommend too highly
