“Two weeks in paradise”
Reviewed 24 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

What a fantastic apartment, so much room, spotlessly clean, everything you need. The views were amazing, the swimming pool so refreshing and that too was so clean, we were in it most of the day.. It was absolutely perfect, we love walking and there were so many paths you could choose. Three restaurants near by our favourite was sol e Serra they made their own ice cream best ice cream we have ever tasted and the food was excellent. Bob and Anne perfect hosts and baked us the most delicious chocolate brownies for our wedding anniversary which was so thoughtful. Rosa cafe/bar had a little shop out the back with all the basics you need and Rosa was such a lovely lady. We truly found our own little paradise and can't wait to go back next year. Thank you Bob and Anne for the best holiday we have ever had.

“Amazing Holiday”
Reviewed 22 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Our holiday at Casa das Carters was by far the best and most relaxing holiday we have ever been on. The studio apartment is fantastic with everything you need and the outside area is even better with sole use of the pool, terrace and garden. The village of Querenca is absolutely stunning with two restaurants and Rosa's bar (who is a fantastic woman who can't do enough to make you welcome!) If you are looking to go further afield then it is essential to rent a car as the town of Loule is about a 20 minute drive and a lovely place to visit. What can we say about the owners Anne and Bob? They are just the perfect hosts. Even before we arrived Anne had sent us driving instructions to the apartment which were very easy to follow and once we arrived we were greated by them both who showed us around. They had even provided a welcome pack of bread, wine and cheese which was very much appreciated as we were really hungry after a long flight!! They leave you alone to relax but are also on hand if you need them which is very comforting. They even gave us a lift into Loule as we didn't hire a car and gave up walking after about 20 minutes of realising we weren't getting anywhere!! We are already looking at booking to come back as we enjoyed it so much and just want to say a huge thank you to Anne and Bob for making us feel so welcome.

“PERFECT - unwind & relax Portuguese style.”
Reviewed 5 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

A hidden gem in the idyllic, traditionally Portuguese village of Querenca. Set in the mountains this holiday rental just keeps on giving. A large studio apartment with sleeping area, living area, TV, wi-fi, kitchenette and large bathroom inside - outside is spectacular, private shaded terrace, balcony, well kept gardens, BBQ area, wishing well with built up seating, 2 areas complete with.seating for an Al Fresco adult break. A large pool exclusively for the use of holiday guests is without a doubt, the crowning glory of this beautiful, purpose built studio apartment. The owners Anne & Bob (who live below), have captured all things Portuguese and added an English flavour - delivering the perfect mix of old and new. They are more than willing to share their wealth of knowledge of the area and further afield without even a hint of intrusion. There is local public transport into the local town of Loule where there is an abundance of boutiques, supermarkets, restaurants and bars. Within walking distance there are a couple of family run Portuguese restaurants, a cafe and bar - perfect to experience the traditional cuisine and the relaxed way of life.
Car hire adds a whole new dimension as less than 30 mins away you can find the trendy Marina and beach resort of Vilamoura, the designer village of Quinta Shopping in Vale Do Lobo, the old and new towns of Albufeira - there really is something for everyone.
I will be returning here for many years to come.

“Time to unwind and turn back time”
Reviewed 1 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Me and my friend come back year after year to stay at this beautiful well kept peaceful property, it's set in an idillic location up in the hills of qeurenca 5 minuets drive from the stunning yet busy little town of loule, the large apartment sleeps 2 and has a living area, a small kitchen and large bathroom with a balcony one side and a terrace with a patio and exclusive use of the pool the other, the property hosts a seated wishing well area, grape vines, BBQ all situated in beautiful gardens, you are left undisturbed by the family living in the house below but armed with lots of knowledge of the area and places to go if required. The apartment is fully air conditioned and a hire car would be an essential.
All in all if your looking for some chilled out down time and peace and quiet with local culture on the door step this is definitely the place to come.

“Relaxing luxury break”
Reviewed 30 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Owners sent in advance excellent instructions to find their Village. Owners are very professional and made us feel very welcome yet let us have our privacy too. Wonderful pool (much needed as weather in the 90's) and good BBQ. Can walk to a local Taverna where the food is wonderful. Peaceful country setting but the entire Algarve is reachable by hiring a car (necessary for this venue). Spacious studio apartment with comfortable beds, seating area & good sized bathroom. Outside facilities are excellent with large patio areas that are well-maintained & offer privacy.

Our last full day here and all we can say is that what everyone has put in the past is spot on.
Anne and Bob are 1st class hosts and are there if you need them and also leave you to your own space as well
The apartment is peaceful comfortable and in avery quiet location. The village of Querenca is a short walk up the hill while Loule is about 10 kilometres drive.
A car is a must in order to get about , however if you want to get away from it all and charge your batteries then look no further than Casa das Carters.......Will we come again you bet we will.
Thanks to Anne and Bob for a very restful, peaceful and enjoyable week
