The apartment is large and comfortable. We loved the pool, the garden and outside seating and barbeque areas. The views from the back and front are wonderful. It is very well equipped except that there is no cooker or hob, just a microwave and an outside barbecue. This was not made clear on the website.
Querenca is a small quiet village in stunning hilly countryside which was great for walks and scenic drives. There are no shops of any consequence only a bar and 3 restaurants so self catering is a challenge unless you drive to the supermarkets at Loule.
The owner, Anne, is very hospitable and helpful.
From the views from the property, the secluded private swimming pool, the spacious accommodation and its tranquil setting, this is a special place to spend a holiday. The welcome pack was more than adequate, and was indeed very welcome. To be provided with beach towels was an extra bonus. It was not a difficult drive from Faro Airport and the instructions from the owners were so clear the drive was stress free. My only complaint is that there should be a warning that a week is not nearly long enough!
We visited Casa das Carters for 3 nights in late August and could easily have stayed much longer. It is a hidden gem in the Algarve mountains. 10 mins from Loule and less than 1km from the sleepy town of Querenca, it's the ideal bolt hole to get away from it all.
The owners, Anne and Bob, could not be more welcoming and even included a welcome pack to begin our stay.
The apartment is fantastic....very spacious and with amazing views over the mountains on one side and private pool area on the other.
A real find and we look forward to returning.
Second visit and still just like arriving home to your own little place without the stress of running costs. Great location and fabulous owners. Pool is amazing, as is the grounds. very secluded and very private. Hosts Bob and Anne are the most friendly people and are always helpful but they will give you total privacy. Sorry that we didn't get to say goodbye due to our early flight, but the next hello is all that matters. We'll be back!!!!!
Our second visit to this wonderful apartment and just as magical as the first. Spotless apartment with so much room and fantastic views. Outside area with the crystal clear swimming pool and Bob and Anne the best hosts you could wish for. We didn't hire a car as we enjoy the wonderful walks all on the door step. We caught the 7.15 bus into loule twice the bus stop is just opposite about 20 minutes at a cost of €3.30 each and then a cab back @ €14 so not a bad price. We brought all the shopping we needed in the continenti supermarket in loule and everday had a walk upto rosa's for beers and other bits and pieces and rosa always has a friendly smile and welcome. Our favourite restaurant is the sol e serra a family fun business who are just so friendly and helpful and the food is excellent especially the home made ice cream. Can't wait to return again next year. Thank you so much Bob and Anne
As usual as soon as we arrived we felt relaxed and at home. Bob and Ann are perfect hosts making us feel very welcome but giving us privacy as well. The apartment is clean and spacious and the pool is to die for .We just love it and will be returning as soon as possible .
