We travel to Carvoeiro yearly to see my dad but this time our friends asked if they could join us. We would normally stay in a one/two bed apartment so needed something more suitable for 4 adults and 3 young children. Having 3 children under the age of 5 our list of priorities were endless and Casa Sentosa delivered on every front.
The Villa is large, well equipped and beautiful both in and out. The pool is sectioned off with two gates so children cannot enter without an adult which was a god send and the children’s section in the pool was also massive help. They have covered every angle with this villa and supply everything you need for an enjoyable, hassle free stay. Mike and Lou and very friendly and so helpful.
I cannot recommend this Villa enough for anybody just wanting a relaxing break or travelling with friends/family and children. You will not be disappointed.

“Excellent, spacious villa with great pool suitable for young children”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2012 for a stay in May 2012

I would like to start by saying how easy and straight forward the booking process was. Especially as i hadn't booked my own villa before. Mike and Lou were always contactable and always more than helpful.

The villa itself was everything the advert had said and more. The cleanliness was of a very high standard inside and out.

All of the bedrooms were bright and spacious, the living room was more than big enough for all nine of us.

The outside/pool area was the highlight of the villa, there was plenty of room for the children to play and plenty of room for the adults to rest. the pool it self was brilliant (I spent most of my time in it) The children's section was safe enough for our children aged
22 months, 2 and 5.

The outside area was baked in sunshine all day long, butt there were enough parasols for shade if need be.

Finally the town of Carvoerio was lovely with a nice little beach and plenty of excellent restaurants.

I would 100% recomend this villa to anyone

“Absolutely Beautiful, Quiet & Relaxing. 5*'s in the Algarve!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2011 for a stay in April 2011

Casa Sentosa is a beautiful villa located in a lovely area of the Algarve, Carvoeiro. It is a nice quiet town which has fabulous restaurants, shops, bars etc but is not crowded with tourists.

The villa itself is beautiful & modern (better than the pictures make it look). It has 3 rooms upstairs (1 double, 1 twin & 1 kids room) and 1 twin room downstairs. It is spacious and has a fantastic private backyard/pool area. The kitchen is fantastic - it has the best equipment in a holiday house I have ever come across. I love to cook and was able to do plenty of this at Casa Sentosa. The pool is fantastic, very clean and has a little wading pool area - great for our baby who enjoyed himself everyday splashing around. We didn't find much need to leave the villa in the whole week we were there apart from occassional dining out, day trips and supermarket trips.

The booking process from start to finish was easy and very professional. The owners contacted me with the rates and how to confirm our booking which we did. They then went onto give us local tips on restaurants, hire car companies, where to get the best shopping - the list goes on. There is a manager who welcomes you to the villa - we were about an hour late so the owner called me from the UK to check that we were ok - how nice is that! We had just been delayed but when we got their the manager, Ulf was there, showed us around the property, how to use everything etc. We did have a problem with the internet connection one day which was immediately fixed. Nothing was ever a problem for them.

I would highly recommend this resort for people who are looking for a relaxing holiday in a nice spot of the Algarve region. I would recommend you hire a car as it makes it easier to get around the region plus there are many nearby towns that are well worth exploring. Patimao is one and Villamoura is another suggestion.
