“Heaven on Earth”
Reviewed 9 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed at Vila Francesca for 8 nights with friends during the month of August. We all had the most incredible time at Vila Francesca. 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 us (adults and kids together). The views were superb, the area quite and Carvoeiro itself was just such a gorgeous town. There are numerous beaches in and around the Algarve. They are all exquisite and we thoroughly enjoyed exploring the 'caves'.

We will definitely be back in the near future and we would love to stay at Vila Francesca again.

Paddy, many thanks for all your assistance and help. We had the most memorable holiday!

“Simply Perfect”
Reviewed 25 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

My wife and I together with her sister, brother in law and two children have just returned from a week at Villa Francesca and we absolutely loved every minute of it. The villa itself is very well equipped, spacious and is kept spotless by Esmarelda who visits 5 days a week. The surrounding area is very quiet and the coast line is stunning although not for the faint-hearted. There's a large gas BBQ on the upper balcony where you can lounge and watch the sun set. The villa is a good 20 minutes walk into Carvoeiro with some steepish hills involved, but there are plenty of local taxi's at around 5 Euros each way. If you get the chance, stop at one of the big out of town supermarkets on the way to the villa as the nearest shop is a 15 minute walk away and only sells the basics. Enjoy :-)

“Tranquil, relaxing holiday.”
Reviewed 17 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Stayed here for 2 weeks with our 2 kids, grandparents and siblings. Lovely area- the view from the top floor balcony is great- we spent many mornings and evenings just enjoying the tranquility there. All bedrooms ensuite and the service from Esmarelda who does the cleaning and Pedro from the rental company is excellent.

It's about a mile from Carveiro centre but very hilly walk so we got taxis most of the time. Some great restaurants in Carveiro and the square is very busy with young and old. Would definitely return.
