Well equipped villa in quiet cul de sac with ocean view. Great base for exploring the Algarve. Would recommend.

This is the second time my family and I have visited Villa Francesca and i hope it won't be the last. I particularly like the villas location although I appreciate that the walk in to town might not suit everyone. Local taxi's are cheap though costing around 4 Euro to Carvoeiro. The villa itself has everything, an extremely well equipped...

Management response:

I am really delighted that Darren has enjoyed so much another holiday at Villa Francesca which my wife and I have worked hard to make both comfortable and welcoming. We spend 3 months in the year there and it has become very much a second home. Paddy Hine.

The Vila was spacious, clean and we had everything (if not more) at our disposable. The gardens were beautifully maintained and it was fantastic to have such a large pool which accommodated all 8 of...

Management response:

It is gratifying to know that Linda and family had such an enjoyable holiday at Villa Francesca and that they plan to return in the future. They will be most welcome, any time.

About the neighborhood
Carvoeiro is a traditional Portuguese fishing village that has developed into a popular holiday destination. It has lost little of its original charm, and has a small sandy beach backed by cafes and restaurants and surrounded by colourful sand and limestone cliffs. In and around Carvoeiro are some fine beaches, golf courses, restaurants and well-stocked supermarkets, and the welcoming locals will cater for your every need and help you to get the most out of your holiday. For those not wishing to hire a car, local taxis are relatively cheap, for example to or from Carvoeiro costs just 5-6 euros.<BR><BR>Just a few km south of the Algarve motorway and only 45 minutes from Faro airport, Carvoeiro also lies conveniently close to the town and harbour of Portimao, an excellent shoppin... more

How to get there
Airport: Faro: 31.1 mi
The villa is located close to the coast and about 2 km to the west of Carvoeiro, a traditional Portuguese fishing village, about 45 minutes drive west of Faro Airport. There are several car hire firms at the airport (Alamo, Autojardim, Avis, Budget, Hertz, National and others) or, alternatively, you can get a taxi to the villa at a cost of around 60 euros. It is an easy, well-signed drive from the airport to join the Algarve motorway (A 22) where you head west towards Portimao. Turn off the A 22 at the Lagoa exit and follow signs to Lagoa Sud and, as you come abeam of the town at some traffic lights on the N 125, turn right for Carvoeiro. The owner will send directions to cover the final 5 km from Lagoa.
