Great place to stay in Carvoeiro, if you like a central location close to the beach and the town square. In the evening you can hear the live music from the square on your terrace. The house is very spacious, the ensuite bathrooms are great, as well as the pool area. The house is clean and very well equipped. The communication with Pac4Portugal was very satisfactory, Alex Cracknell responded rapidly to all my questions. Recommended!
We have had a fantastic week at Casa Caravela from 24-30 June!
The villa is so spacious and catered to our every need- we thought the beach pack was really useful. The pool is large enough for a big group and the space around it is great for sunbathing. This area got direct sunlight in the morning until the evening, which we enjoyed. The many balconies were great to eat meals and see Carvoeiro from many different angles. Inside the house is great for resting, there is a huge comfortable sofa and you can watch Netflix on the tv.
We didn't hire a car as Casa Caravela is very central and only a short walk to the shops, restaurants, beach and boardwalk. The beach is lovely and if there's any windy days you are very protected down there!
Carvoeiro is a lovely town and we really enjoyed dining at Happy's and Ele and Ela, and getting drinks at Bar Charlie which overlooks the nighttime entertainment! This can also be heard from the balconies of Casa Caravela if you stay in. We also enjoyed a day trip to Silves and Quinta De Frances winery (recommended in the welcome book).
The week flew by but we will be back to Casa Caravela!
A great two week stay in this lovely villa. Pictures really do not do justice to the facilities, location and space this beautiful villa provides. Huge airy rooms, all with excellent en-suite facilities, and extremely well equipped.
The location is ideal - a quick 5 minute downhill stroll to the centre of town and restaurants but far enough out to be private. The outside space is superb - lovely gardens and pool area all very well maintained. Communal areas inside are all well appointed with plenty of seating, wifi and satellite TV.
The management company were great - very helpful both before and during our stay, with a real personal touch. Nothing seemed too much trouble from early check in to luggage storage. Their staff - maids, gardeners and pool man all very friendly and discrete.
I would recommend Casa Caravela and Pac4Portugal to anyone looking for a relaxed stay in Carvoeiro. We will certainly be booking again for next year
We stayed at the villa as a family of 3. Very spacious villa with 3 large bedrooms, each with an en suite bathroom. Air con throughout. Good, central location with an approximate 3 minute walk into the centre of town, although the walk back is all uphill. Good sized pool which my son really enjoyed. Sun loungers and beach towels provided. A BBQ is provided. There is a games room with table football to keep the kids entertained. Free wifi is provided which is a bonus. Tv with lots of English channels and a good selection of movies. A welcome pack of water, bread, ham etc was provided on arrival which was a lovely personal touch.
There are lots of nice bars and restaurants in the area. Music is provided on a stage in the centre of town which lasts until approx 12pm.
Nice beach although we much preferred the pool at our villa.
Would recommend this villa to anyone looking for a nice relaxing holiday in a nice town in Portugal!!
Very spacious villa with a fantastic location. The villa is a stone's throw to the centre of Carvoeiro and even closer to some of the restaurants and bars. You can see the beach and sea from the villa and could walk there in 5 minutes.
The villa itself is well appointed with 3 large double bedrooms all with en suite bathrooms and it has plenty of communal space. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you could need. It has a pool and plenty of outdoor space although in January it wasn't warm enough to use it! Will be fabulous in the warmer weather.
Just returned from a short break staying at Casa Caravela in Carvoeiro. The villa is a stone throw away from both the beach and the town. It is very spacious, homely, well equipped and in a fabulous location. You can sit on the terrace (one of many) or Sit on the sofa in the lounge and see the beach and hear the waves crashing!
Maybe next time I visit I will be able to enjoy the pool in the sunshine..........
