Just a perfect place
This has got to be one of the best places I have stayed, everything has been thought of and more to make your stay perfect. Yvette and Ian in my opinion should be running a big holiday company as there was not one thing that was not perfect with the booking, the information given was spot on. I also needed help with something while I was there and Yvette went above and beyond to help me out. The Villa is out this world from the furnishing to the decor, there is some fabulous artwork to appreciate. The fun and relaxation we have had in the pool has been awesome, I don’t think I’ve spent so much time in water, it is a perfect size and just beautiful and has really comfortable loungers. We ate out quite a bit,…cheap and cheerful Harry’s Bar for a full English up until 2pm,…Taste was amazing just down from the villa, Chefs Kitchen and Donna Maria were firm favourites Thank you once again Yvette and Ian

Perfect holiday
I have just returned from a week holiday in Casa Tranquila, Carvoeiro, Portugal with my husband and 10 year old daughter. From the moment I booked this propert, the villa owners, Yvette and Ian could not have been more helpful, providing comprehensive information about the property, as well as fabulous recommendations for things to do and where to eat and drink, even driving regulations and detailed directions from the airport. Accommodating our request for an early check in and late check out due to the times of our flights was such a bonus - giving us a few additional precious hours of our holiday. The property itself is modern and immaculate, and includes everything you could possibly hope for in a self catering holiday. The pool (which we spent many hours in) is immaculate and the mid week maid service and pool maintenance was a bonus. We absolutely loved both Carveiro and the villa itself and were so sad to leave. Without doubt we will return - preferably as soon as possible!

Such a Fabulous Villa!
I cannot recommend Casa Tranquila highly enough! We have stayed in this beautiful villa several times over the years and each time it is as perfect as the first time! Yvette and Ian are the most helpful and considerate hosts you could hope for, both before, during and after your stay. They have ensured that the villa has everything you could possibly need for a relaxing holiday. We love just being at Casa Tranquila - enjoying the pool and wonderful view, eating on the terrace or relaxing in the beautiful sitting room in the evening. Casa Tranquila is in a perfect location, just 10 minutes walk to the beach and town Square with a multitude of shops and restaurants along the way. There is so much to see and do in the Carvoeiro but there are also many places nearby to explore such as Ferragudo , Silves, Portimao and all the stunning beaches along the coast. Casa Tranquila is the most wonderful place to stay!

Tolles Haus und super Gastgeber
direkt in Carvoeiro mit Blick auf das Meer liegt dieses wunderschöne Haus. Geschmackvoll und hochwertig eingerichtet. Salzwasserpool, Gasgrill, Sonnenterasse, alles was das Herz begehrt. Schon in Vorbereitung auf die Reise wurden wir mit allen Informationen von den Gastgebern versorgt. Wir hatten immer das Gefühl willkommen zu sein. Vielen vielen Dank, wir kommen gerne wieder

Wonderful Villa
This was without doubt the loveliest villa we have stayed in. The level of comfort was second to none. A beautifully designed space, spotless interiors with every luxury planned in. My only slight issue was the level of dog barking in the vicinity which did at times provide some irritation around the pool but this aside we had a wonderful time staying here and wouldn't hesitate to return.

Amazing Villa.
Casa Tranquila is an amazing place to stay in a perfect location. The owners Ian & Yvette, can't do enough for you, from instructions on how to get there, how certain bits of equipment work, things nearby, and recommendations for places to eat. The villa was very clean, very well equipped and maintained. There where no issues at all during our stay but even if there had been I have no doubt that the owners would have had them dealt with asap. I cannot praise Casa Tranquila and Ian & Yvette highly enough, we will be booking again. We loved it.

Amazing Villa - perfect location and very well equipped!
This was a great base for our holiday in the Algarve. After 3 years of not travelling abroad due to Covid it was definitely worth the wait. The villa is located just a short walk from Carvoeiro town centre. There is a large supermarket 2KM in the other direction as well as a few smaller food shops in the town. The villa was very clean and had everything we needed. Our two girls basically spent the week in the pool and we enjoyed lounging around the pool and getting in for an occasional cool down! The beds were comfy and bathrooms spacious. I would definitely recommend staying here. Most evenings we went to the local restaurants in town but we took a few trips out to other towns also. We enjoyed Ferragudo and we also visited Silves to go to the Medieval festival which was on for 10 days in August. We used Uber taxis to get around which worked well. There are plenty of good restaurants in Carvoeiro as well as lots of shops and a busy but beautiful beach. Some evenings there is entertainment in the town square and there is a frequent road train that takes people on a tour of Carvoeiro and the surroundings. The owners of the villa were very helpful and gave us many recommendations and also answered any questioned we had. Thank you for letting us stay - we definitely didn't want to leave!

FABULOUS STAY Amazing Villa!
This is a stunning villa right in the heart of Carvoeiro so a car is not required. Cleanliness, location and the facilities on offer are second to none.The owners provide you with a home from home and are a pleasure to deal with. The communication and information provided by them, before and during rental was second to none! We have holidayed in this resort many many times and love it. This is by far the best villa we have stayed in. I have no negatives on this home to comment on only positives. Do not hesitate to book you will love it. A truly wonderful villa in one of the best locations!

There are three main streets, each lined with coffee shops/bars, smart restaurants and tourist shops. Fresh fish and locally produced fruit and vegetables can be purchased from the market. The beach, which has amazing rock formations around the cove, is a pleasant 5 minute walk from the villa. There are plenty of other stunning beaches within a 5-10 minute drive from the villa. There are three golf courses within 5 minutes drive and a further golf course about 15 minutes away. There is an excellent tennis club which welcomes holiday makers to join club sessions.
