Reviewed 22 September 2011

Love this apartment complex. It's small friendly, with one of the best restaurants in town. Apartments are spotless and rooms a very good size and well equipped and maintained. It's a pleasant downhill 15-20 stroll into town.5 euro taxi back.! There is a small on site shop selling fresh bread, milk, water etc. Really handy. If I won the lottery this is where I would buy my family holiday home. Fingers crossed for me!

Just returned from a wonderful week staying at Vila Nova in Carvoeiro. The apartments are spotlessly clean and roomy with most mod-cons. There is a shared pool for the surrounding apartments (which never gets too busy) and a plentiful supply of sun beds and umbrellas. The restaurant run by Anibal serves wonderful fresh food and, at night, is a most relaxing place to eat. You will come across people who have stayed here dozens of times and return year after year.

The apartments are situated towards the edge of Carvoeiro and it is a most pleasant stroll into the centre of Carvoeiro at night (about 30 minutes slow walk). If you are feeling lazy (or have eaten/drunk too much) a taxi back costs approx 5 euros. Carvoeiro itself has a lovely vibrant feel with a huge variety of restaurants and bars (to suit all pockets). The age group of visitors tends to be on the more mature side or young families, as such it is not as raucous a destination as some of the more developed towns on the Algarve; instead it offers a thoroughly enjoyable and fun stay at a slightly slower pace but can keep you occupied well into the early hours is that is your wont.

Note: some of the reviews attached to this destination don't seem to relate to Vila Nova in Carvoeiro but seem to be about somewhere completely different!

Nice location just outside Carvoeiro but only about a 20 min walk down hill thro' a nice residential area. On the way back is up hill but still not too bad.
We stayed in apt 11 on ground floor which had 2 beds, one ensuite, one family bathroom an full kitchen including dishwasher/gas oven/wash machine/microwave/fridge freezer. The living room was large and all in all ideal. I would say tho' the picture in the Style brochure was of an apt that had been refurbished!
The 'complex' is part holiday part privately owned apts and with a lot of repeat visitors. Plenty of choice of restaurants locally and in the town. We hired a car for the two weeks and explored the many beaches along the Algarve and didn't really spend too much time around the pool but this was clean and ideal for families with children. The mini market on site was more accurately a micro mkt but did fresh bread in the morning.
All in all a great place for a two week holiday.

We have stayed at Villa Nova for many years, the apartments are beautiful, clean and spacious. The complex is small but Isobel and Annibal, the managers, are very friendly and they welcome us like family every year. The restaurant is exceptional with fresh home made food. I recommend the Lemon Meringue!

The Vila Nova Apartments in Carvoeiro are very spacious and clean. The pool and excellent restaurant are run by a young couple who also manage the apartments. We met people who had returned there over 10 times! We booked the Casa Vida apartment directly with the owner. Cannot recommend too highly
